About Dan & Christie Fitzgerald, Owners

We are a 6 generation York Beach family having deep roots in the "Concordville'" area of the Nubble. The property upon which our rental homes are located was purchased by my great-grandfather, one York's first settlers, in the 1860's. Since building our homes and starting this venture in 2007, our greatest joy has been meeting and getting to know our guests who have come from near and far.

Great comforts of home while vacationing in Maine!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this wonderful vacation home - truly feels like a home away from home. No sacrificing comfort with large beautifully decorated rooms and spacious bathrooms. Full kitchen to allow family gatherings and stay home evenings when that's what you want. Also, close enough to beaches, restaurants, and entertainment you can walk. We have extended family in the area who come up to visit and we can all gather on the deck and in the yard for lobster, steamers, and barbeque and then walk for ice cream. Some of the night owls even walked to Nubble Light for the sunrise. We will be back for certain!

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a week in York. This house is so beautiful and comfortable for the whole family. It was spotless and had everything we could possibly need. The back porch was our favorite gathering spot and just a perfect place to enjoy a cool breeze and smell the sea air. Christie and Dan were so welcoming and kind, and it was nice to know they were available if we needed anything. We took advantage of many of their tips! They really have thought of everything to make this property really feel like a home away from home. Best vacation I've had in Maine!

Lovely house!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house, wonderful location. We had a wonderful time in York Beach.

Dan and Chris are wonderful any questions you have they can answer and are fabulous people. The house set up was great, the bedroom on the first floor was perfect as my sisters and I were traveling with me 83 year old mother. The rooms were perfect, everything was spotless and perfectly decotated. We loved the house and everything about it.

Thanks for a great time.

Mom and Daughter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We arrived and were greeted by one of the owners, Chris, who was wonderful. She explained everything and showed us where everything was. This property was spectacular. There were four bedrooms and three bathrooms and lots of space to sit and talk. This had to be the most beautiful and inviting home/place I have ever stayed despite lots of traveling. First of all it was spotless and decorated in such a tasteful way that it was not at all commercial, just perfect. The floors, oh my gosh, absolutely stunning. I am replacing the floors in my home and now I know with what. Wood floors, Brazilian Cherry, brilliant. I had to take pictures to bring home to my husband so he could see what I wanted. They added even more elegance to the house. The house is fully equipped with anything you could possibly need, dish washer, disposal, washer/dryer, cable TV, grill and linens are supplied as well. I don't know where they purchased this, I think it came from their hearts, was the feeling of peace and serenity and warmth in every corner of this home. Despite our busy schedule that feeling was always there when we returned to the house.

The grounds were meticulously maintained. In the front there was a rock garden and flowers by the steps. In the back a picnic table and beautiful trees to enjoy from the porch off the dining room. Though this house is in a neighborhood you get the feeling you are all alone as it is quiet and peaceful.

The location is excellent for getting to the ocean which is just a short walk, the Nubble Lighthouse is just around the corner, and many other activities and attractions are close by. You don't have to spend half a day in the car to get to see many interesting places. The ocean is majestic.

The neighborhood was great for walking or running for those of you who are so inclined. It felt very safe, Everyone was kind and friendly,

The customer service from the owners was outstanding. Dan and Chris answered all our questions about every little thing, even those they had clearly written about in the folder about the house (I needed reinforcement about some things) with kindness and clarity. They told us about the history of many places and made those visits even more interesting. They were attentive but never intrusive. They were at our beck and call for even the silliest questions and always with a smile on their faces. If property owners got Emmys these two would win hands down.

What a beautiful house!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a beautiful house. The property description is completely accurate, The house has everything you could possibly need for an ideal vacation. The house is spotlessly clean. I would recommend this as a perfect place for several generations. We had 3 generations and had more than enough room for all. When you are within walking distance to the Goldenrod and the penny candy counter what grandchild wouldn't be happy. We hope to be back in 2011.

3 generation family get together

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the privilege of occupying the above mentioned property for a three generation family get together. Not only are the homeowners of this lovely home accommodating and so very sweet, but the home itself was so suited to our needs. It is impeccably equipped with all of the amenities and conveniences that anyone might need; not to mention how wonderfully decorated it is. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for a great family get away!
