Great location for a relaxing beach week

  • 5 of 5

Arrival was incredibly easy and we were welcomed by an extremely clean house, lobster pasta to cook, and 2 bottles of wine! The listing was accurate and the house is just as clean and well maintained as the pictures show. The kitchen is very well equipped for a rental. We had brought our own coffee grinder, but they had that too! Also had brochures and information about the surrounding area. The owner stopped by the 2nd day to check in, answer questions, and offer personal suggestions for eating, which we took and were excellent. Great knowledge of the local area.

Beach access was a very short walk away down a very quiet street (or even shorter down a busier street). The beach is private, but we never had a problem finding a spot - we heard it is more crowded during the middle of the summer but homeowners are still generally accepting of people from nearby homes.

Locally, we enjoyed time in Ogunquit, Kennebunk, and Kittery for the shopping, Trolley Museum, and Outlets. York is also close by and they have a zoo and amusement park. Our favorite activity was just digging and running on the beach. Hope it remains a nice unspoiled piece of the coast for a long time to come!

Great beach house for families with children

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly as described and pictured. It has a beautiful kitchen, which was fully equipped, as well as a charcoal grill outside. Nice, open floor plan to the main living space. The house has four bedrooms, sleeping a total of 8 people. Three bedrooms are on one side of the house, near the full bathroom, and the other bedroom is on the other side of the house with the half bath with washer/dryer. The outside shower was a bonus, as was the washer/dryer. This house is around the corner from private, sandy Moody beach (about 5 min walk). The beach is gorgeous and not too crowded - even over the July 4th holiday. The only trick with the beach is that there are no public bathrooms, so be aware of that, particularly if you have small children. But we made it work and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Many times we were the only ones enjoying the beach in the morning hours, other than a few people walking or running. The house is just a short car drive to grocery stores, restaurants, mini-golf, and about 20 minutes from York Zoo and Amusement Park. I would definitely recommend this home. The owners are very gracious hosts and made sure we were well taken care of, including a bottle of wine and flowers on arrival, and July 4th t-shirts for our kids!

Beach House Fun

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this house to anyone. We absolutely enjoyed ourselves at this house rental.

The owners thought of every little detail to make everyone staying, happy. From leaving us fresh flowers and a bottle of wine, to every kitchen utensil, cookware, dishes etc, to a sprinkler for kids on a hot day if you didnt want to go to the beach. The house has a very open concept and is extremely comfortable and very quiet! Teh dishwasher, washer/dryer and outdoor shower are a huge plus.

Right around the corner from the beach! and driving distance to everything (stores, restaurants, arcade, mini golf etc).
