Spacious house close to beach

  • 4 of 5

The house can accommodate a big group of people. They have all the kitchen pots and pans you would ever need. Really like the layout of the house; we didn't feel like we were on top of each other but we were still able to socialize easily. Easy walk to the beach.

Budget minded vacation.

  • 4 of 5

We had four generations with us for this vacation, from ages 4, up to early 80's. Plenty of room for everyone, and a bedroom downstairs for those not looking to climb steps. It was very clean but a little run down here and there. The rental was clean well stocked, plenty of towels sheets and small items like paper towels, laundry detergent, dish soap etc... , you will not have to run to the store for anything needed for daily living. Appliances were modern and up to date. For us, it was a little out of the way, although it was only a five minute walk to the beach, some of us tire easily, but you do not have to worry about taking the car down, very quick trip. Plenty of parking, we were able to fit 5 cars and had room for three more. The owners were very nice, we met the father, he was on time to let us in and at the end of the rental came by to pick something up and offered for us to stay the day if we wanted to as know one was renting behind us. Backyard had plenty of space and we used it often, deck was a little old, worn and in need of repair but useable. We loved the wrap around porch. You can see the ocean from the porch and front windows, but have to really look for it. In all we had a very nice stay, I would recommend for a large budget minded family or group. Very old and I would term it vintage, it took us a day or so to start feeling comfortable. Looks like they are upgrading/repairing as they go ?

Great house! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what we were looking for! It provided a perfect long weekend getaway. We hosted a BBQ with 15-20 people. There was even plenty of parking for everyone.


The location-- York is such a cute town! And this house provides great access to all of it. 5 min walk to the beach, shops and restaurants.

The house--so many bed rooms! Plenty of space for our 11 overnight guests. Kept very nice and clean for being an older house. All linens provided is very convenient. Comfortable beds. Cozy family room couches with a pretty decent selection of DVDs. Sitting out reading on the front porch was the perfect way to unwind on a Friday afternoon after a busy week in the city.

Backyard—grill with propane included, a patio set and plenty of space to set up a few lawn games.

The owners--Working with John and John was such a breeze. Very nice and friendly. Upon check-in got a thorough tour of the whole house.

No Cons! Would definitely recommend and can hopefully make it back up in the future.

Thanks again!

The property was great! The price was on point!

  • 5 of 5

The price of the home cannot be beat. Yes, there are some cosmetic things that do not match other homes in the area... But they are small and do not detract from the experience at all! Plenty of beds, great kitchen, lots of Parking (which is KEY in York) and a backyard for the kids. John was a phenomenal owner and very easy to

Communicate with. Thanks for the wonderful weekend john!

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here very much! We had a family with 7 adults and 6 kids and there was plenty of room for all of us. The house was stocked with so many "extras" towels, sheets, soap, kitchen spices. The house has a great backyard and very large dining & living room area where we all hung out when we were home. The owners were great. We never had any issues during our stay. I also have to add that the house is about a block from the beach. It was perfect walking distance to the beach and shops, even my 3 year old could walk it no problem! Would definitely recommend and stay again!!

A great time was had by all!

  • 4 of 5

This is our second time renting here. It's a short walk to town, beach and of course the Union Bluff our favorite place for lunch. One thing for older travelers to know is here are a lot of stairs to climb. Other than that the kitchen is well stocked with every utensil you could need, there is a grill and patio set in the back yard and plenty of front porch furniture where I spent time reading. The beds were made and ready for our stay. We will return again and highly recommend you give this home a try. Cindy
