Fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent, excellent, excellent!! Everything was perfect. The house is very bright (lots of windows), decor absolutely beautiful and very clean. Linens, towels provided along with 6 bikes which are great for cycling down to the beach. The owner & the housekeeper provided excellent customer service. My friends & I highly recommend this gem located in town overlooking the port. No need for car unless you want to explore outskirts of Kennebunkport. Shopping wonderful, restaurants delicious & locals are extremely friendly and courteous.

This is the best property rental I have ever stayed at.

Couldn't of Asked for More

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much Sherry for providing such an amazing vacation. If you're interested in this property, pack lightly because everything you can think of is already provided at this beautiful home. From lobster platters to washing machines; everything is available in the property. The location is awesome, a 2 minute walk right into town, or a mile stroll to the beach. We loved the layout that afforded quieter experiences for the adults, while still giving the kids room to spread out.

Helen the house manager was super helpful in providing local recommendations and was 'on-call' if there was anything else we might need. (which was nothing!)

It's always a bit nerve wracking renting a home when you only have pictures to go by; however this was an easy decision and an even easier experience.

Thanks again and so hope to make it back next year!

The home is perfectly situated to enjoy all that the Kennebunk's and nearby New England towns have to offer. Portland is an easy 30-40 minute drive and has much to explore. Portsmouth, NH is 40 minutes away and equally as charming a seaport town. The area is filled with antique shops, art galleries, boutiques, fabulous restaurants of every price range and, of course, endless lobster shacks. Walk to the famed Clam Shack for awesome fried clams or The White Barn Inn for a Five Star dining experience. The scenery is spectacular from the rugged beach to the charming New England villages, coves and countryside.

I will NEVER ask you to wire money and be aware that many scammers have hacked Homeaway sites and done just that.

Other Activities: Museums, Day trips to Boston, Ferry to Nova Scotia
