Beautiful House Directly on The Beach
It was wonderful to fall asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach that you could hear from most of the bedrooms. The Victorian home is directly on the beach. Probably less than 75 feet to the sandy beach. Love the walk to Strawberry island and the beautiful sunsets. The home was beautifully kept and had a large backyard for the kids to play before frolicking in the sandy beach and bathing in the ocean. An ideal spot for the family, we will be back next year and hopefully many more years.
My husband and I rented this house over the Labor Day weekend for us and our family. It was amazing. Gorgeous water views from most rooms in the house. Spent many hours sitting on the porch just relaxing and looking at the water. Inside the house had everything that we needed. House was immaculate and kitchen was fully stocked. House had plenty of sheets and towels for the 7 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The fire pit on the beach was a huge hit for my crew. Dick (the owner) was very helpful every time I called him before I went up and while I was there when I had a quick question. I hope to rent this house again next year and would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a large home on the water for friends or family get-togethers.
My family and I had the pleasure of spending a week here this summer. The house is charming, beautifully furnished with (all but one) nice big renovated bathrooms. Upon arrival house was clean, plenty of towels and fresh linens. At peak, we had 9 adults and three children under 4. There was plenty of space for us especially in the beautiful backyard on the ocean. The private beach was so easy with the kids and provided hours of entertaining. The owner, was readily available and easy to deal with. He even popped by making sure that we had everything we needed. Porches, yard, beach, beach gear, plenty of space, grills, this house has everything you will need. You cannot beat this location and this house! We hope we are luck enough to become regulars!
We have spent the month of May in the cottage at 292 Beach Ave., for the last 2 years. The house is clen, the furniture cmfortable, the bathrooms all nw and modern and well lighted.
With all of this you get 2 wonderful proches, one dow and one upstairs, a pretty lawn for children or pets with outdoor chairs, a canoe and a vvery long sady beach. "Anns Beach at historical Strawberry Island".
To sum it up; its fabulous, wonderful, nice, comfortable, you will enjoy it and we will be back.
I wrote an earlier email stating how fabulous this property and its owners are but I don't see it in the reviews so, I'm writing again. Our annual "bowling girls weekend in Kennebunk" has been taking place for the past 12 years and every year is better than the year before. The home is absolutely perfect for a large group, which makes it more affordable as well. The photos don't do it justice and the owner keeps the property up, improving it every year. The vistas from the back porch on the rockers are almost as relaxing as sleeping with the windows open listening to the water slap against the shoreline. Although we never leave the property (why would you when the beach is outside your back door and you have all your provisions at your fingertips), there is lots of shopping, dining and other activities just two miles down the road in Kennebunkport's Lower Village. If you want to get a little exercise, you can even walk to town.....viewing beautiful seaside homes and a 5-star restaurant along the way. We've been there during three seasons and each visit is simply the best. The owners are always just a phone call away but we've had no reason to call for anything as we arrive and leave without any issues.
I've recommended this beach house to family and friends who were planning weddings, reunions, birthday celebrations, etc. and everyone is very thankful for the recommendation. It's simply a wonderfully relaxing retreat. It's always clean and welcoming with fresh flowers upon arrival and furnishings that aren't too fussy. There's parking for about 5 or 6 cars in the driveway, depending on the size.
We plan to keep this home on our travel schedule for years to come.
