Best place to relax and enjoy life!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th year of staying at this absolutely fantastic beach house. We all speak of our vacation all year and count the days until we return. Somehow sitting on the deck and watching the tides come and go, the fish jump, the seagulls drop clams to open them and the fresh ocean air reminds us how good life can be when all you have to do is relax!! the owner, Pete, is great to work with and has accommodated our needs each time we have asked. I can't wait to go back next year!

Just mesmerizing!

  • 5 of 5

Where do we start? We just returned from a wonderful week and everything about this place is ultimate. The house simply has everything one needs to enjoy a very comfortable and quiet getaway in a great community. The setting is so close to the water and the views of the constantly changing tides and boats coming and going make it very special indeed. There's also great opportunities for low tide beach walks, fishing on the sandbars not to mention beautiful sunrises. It's a clear winner and we'll definitely be back next year....thanks again Peter!

We have been spending a week at this beach house every summer for 7 years now. The house itself is absolutely perfect and has everything that you need. The location could not be better with beautiful views and quick access to both the beach and the river. We travel a lot as a family, and our favorite place is this beach house! Pete, the owner, is amazing and our stay is always hassle-free. It's also fabulous that the cottage is close to Portland - a great day trip in case of rain. Cannot recommend this cottage enough!

Perfect Family Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about The Ultimate Beach House. To start, the owner could not have been easier to work with. Any question we had prior to renting was answered within 24 hours. The house was immaculate when we arrived and well stocked with everything we needed. Having a washer and dryer on the premises was a huge plus! The location is the best on the beach. Having two young daughter's (1 and 3) we had a lot of beach gear and this home literally sat on the beach and was only steps to the ocean! The beach is very clean and very quiet and the ocean water is perfect for young children. We enjoyed walking the sandbars daily and searching for aquatic treasures! While our girls napped every day my husband and I could sit on the deck and enjoy the beautiful view of the ocean! We can't wait to return for many years to come!

We have been staying here for about 5 years during our vacation. The views from both decks is just amazing. The beach house is very clean and well maintained. The owner, Pete, is very accomodating and can easily be reached if you needed to. It is a perfect beach for young children to pick sea shells and teens and adults will love to walk over to the island at low tide and find numerous sand dollars. There are tons of attractions and restaurants all within a 20-30 minute drive. I cannot wait to go back next summer.
