About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-15)

Tired of cookie cutter condos with beige on beige interiors? Want to save on gas this summer. Try some old fashioned fun in a large beach house steps from the world famous Old Orchard Beach, a 7 mile sandy beach great for all ages. Once here you don't have to drive anywhere!

The first floor has 3 bedrooms, full kitchen, 1.5 baths and enclosed porch. The second floor has 2 bedrooms, full kitchen, 1 bath and small outdoor deck. It is great for small groups or large families. The house is a 5 minute walk from one of the last remaining ocean front amusement parks, Palace Playland.

You can even 'walk to Boston' by boarding the Amtrack train at the local station for a day in the city. The front porch is great and large enough to accommodate family meals or just sitting and watch the world go by.

Old Orchard Beach has numerous restaurants, arcades and amusements, shops and the famous Pier all within walking distance from the house. There is also a small yard with gas and charcoal grills available, outdoor shower, and picnic tables.

Partial rentals, off season rates and some pets allowed.

Needs updating!

  • 3 of 5

This house really needs some updating!! The blankets provided in the house were old, ratty and stained. I don't even think they were washed for some time. The washer and dryer are not located in the home, they are next door in the dark cellar and didn't even work so we couldn't even wash the blankets ourselves. Instead needed to go purchase our own. The Internet was temperamental and only worked 50% of the time. Owner stated time warner was notified but never received a call from them and they never showed up. The whole house was large enough to accommodate 2 families nicely. There was plenty of room but needs cosmetic help badly. Could also use some washing. Floors were filthy and furniture smelly. Couldn't even use some of the dressers as they smelt awful inside. Small appliances also need to be updated as many did not work. Also the amusement park is not a 5 min walk. The beach front may be but the amusement park was at least 15-20 mins away (walking). The pics need to be updated also because they really don't resemble it anymore. Definitely not worth the money we paid!
