About the property

1bedroom, 1bath, sleeps 2

The Beach Berry is an adorable, quiet, cozy, getaway for two adults. It is beautifully furnished and decorated. The Beach Berry welcomes small adult dogs. It is just a 5 minute walk to the beach and a 15 minute walk to the town square and The Pier. There's a personal patio surrounded by beautiful tall pines where you can sit and relax or cook a nice meal on the grill. You have an old-fashioned clothesline where you can hang out your wet suits. It has a washer/ dryer in the basement for your convenience. I tried to think of every amenity to make one's stay comfortable and enjoyable including literature, color TV/DVD with movies, stereo/radio, and a fully equipped kitchen. Linen and towels(bath and beach) are included, plus 2 beach chairs with personal umbrellas anda beach dolley for your convenience. I have purchased a leather reclining loveseat for a more comfortable stay and a larger flatscreen TV (not shown in the pics because I can't figure out how to change them.) All new bedroom ensemble for summer of 2012.New up-dated bath for 2013!

$875weekly during peak season: $675 May and June for 2015 season

About Crystal Marshall

I grew up in Old Orchard and graduated in 1965. I taught grades 2-5 over a span of 36 years in Maine and in CT. I bought the family home in 1984.My mom lived in the apt next door until her death. I rented the apt until 2008. It was then I decided to renovate and decorate the apartment now named The Beach Berry to become a summer rental. What a good idea! I have met so many wonderful folks from Canada and all over the USA.

Crystal Marshall purchased this apartment in 1984

What makes this apartment unique

It is so close to the beach and downtown yet far enough away to be quiet and peaceful.

Whimsical get away.

  • 5 of 5

The Beach Berry is a sweet little in-law apartment only minutes from the beach. Very clean and well kept, absolutely adorable and whimsically decorated. You can tell that attention was paid to every detail when furnishing this apartment. Great as a base for adventures in Maine, or to just hang out all day.

A perfect place

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a perfect size for 2 adults and a small blind dog! Very clean, and nicely decorated, and very comfortable. It was great to have a full kitchen available. Close to the beach and other locations. Yes, I recommend the Beach Berry!

A Berry, Berry Wonderful Beach Rental!

  • 5 of 5

The "Beach Berry" met all our rental needs and expectations. The apartment is perfectly located within walking distance (5-7mins.) to the beach yet far enough from to afford restful and peaceful evenings.

The owner, Crystal, was a gracious host who (in our opinion) went above and beyond to ensure our stay was comfortable; being a native of OOB, she was able to provide us (when asked) suggestions as to some of the best places to dine, shop or just have fun.

The interior is colorful, clean and well-appointed and gives one that relaxed and fun feeling living on the beach provides, it's truly a charming rental that made us feel quite at home.

There are TV's in the LR & BR, WiFi is provided. The kitchen has everything you need to cook and eat, including toaster & Microwave. There is a large bedroom upstairs with a Queen Bed and plenty of storage; there are even some books for those who enjoy reading before sleep.

Outside, there is a patio area with a grille; we enjoyed cooking out several times during our stay. The yard is well-kept, clean and provides adequate privacy for guests.

Overall, the Beach Berry is an A+. We had a wonderful stay, "thank you (so much) Crystal for everything you did to make our stay one to always remember!"

Would we recommend this rental to friends/family..........absolutely.

Adorable and Affordable!

  • 5 of 5

The owner is very kind and has worked hard to furnish this beach cottage with everything you could ever need. The interior is adorable and it is only a short walk from the cottage to the beach. I cannot think of a more perfect place to stay!

Cute as a dollhouse

  • 5 of 5

This is a super cute dollhouse-like apt. Downstairs there is a small kitchen, dining area, comfy living room (sofa-recliner) with cable TV and small bathroom with shower. Also access to back deck with grill. Walk to beach, restaurants and Landry grocery store. Parking space right in front of the apartment. Owner lives next door and was working to beautify the front garden.

Upstairs is a large sleeping area with 3 dormer windows, 2 closets and comfy bed and a TV. Plenty of blankets, a/c if you need it (we did not).

Obvious that the owner spent a lot of time and thought with the decor of this two story apartment.

The Beach Berry

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Beach Berry the first week of Sept, 2011. The owners are very accomodating and helpful, but you get your privacy as well. Our pups were very happy to have a yard to run around and sniff in, not to mention it was very convenient for us humans, too! OOB is an easy drive to Portland, which we did on our rainy days, and also an easy walk to the beach, pier and other attractions. The unit is well equipped, I can't think of anything that wasn't available. The bathroom is rather small, but for the price, location and pet-friendliness, this place can't be beat!
