About Greg Burke

My wife and I purchased this In-town waterfront home in late Fall 2009. We redecorated the entire house and totally renovated the kitchen area and added a NEW 2nd Master Suite in the Spring of 2010. Be one of the few that gets to stay in this outstanding $1.5 million dollar home with water on 3 sides… call us now.

Greg Burke purchased this house in 2009

Why Greg Burke chose Kennebunkport

We moved to the Kennebunks in the early 1990’s to raise our 2 children in this idyllic seaside community. We lived on Ocean Ave our first couple of years in town and currently live across the river in Kennebunk. This is an outstandingly beautiful area with great shops, restaurants, beaches, boating… We look forward to moving into 82 Ocean ourselves eventually. Meantime we are looking for guests who will enjoy and respect the property as much as we do. This is definitely NOT your normal 'rental', it is a luxury home for you to enjoy and treat with the respect it deserves.

What makes this house unique

Water on 3-sides. 4 Fireplaces. You can sit on the sun-porch and watch the boats come and go on the River. Or on the back patio you can be on a secluded tidal cove and enjoy our Gas BBQ Grill and Outdoor Gas Fire Pit. An easy .4 mile walk to Dock Square to the north with its unique shops and restaurants or .5 miles to a quiet sandy beach to your south.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“A wonderful week at 82 Ocean, and our first trip to Maine. We visited lighthouses, sailed on the Pineapple Ketch, toured the Seashore Trolley Museum, enjoyed excellent dining at Mabel’s Lobster Claw, Bandaloop, lobster rolls from The Clam Shack. We even found time to build a lighthouses of Maine puzzle. We love 82 Ocean, the perfect location with spectacular views, great amenities, and the best hospitality.”

Sunshine, Waterviews, Sheep, and Corn Hole!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? 82 Ocean had everything! And I mean EVERYTHING!! We arrived on a beautiful summer night, to find the front porch lit up by the evening sun. After picking out our bedrooms (my favorite was the third floor suite- great view from the loo), we sparked up the outdoor fire pit, poured a cold glass of rose, turned on the sound system, and officially kicked off vacation. Weren't we surprised to wake up and find sheep grazing across the way! Idyllic = water views in front and bucolic views out the back door. Proximity to town was perfect. I think I actually lost weight on vacation. A first. Morning runs to the Bush home, afternoons on the beach, late afternoon naps, early evening shopping, lobsta, cocktails, and puzzles on the front porch were pretty much de rigueur. Oh, and I can't forget the corn hole. Both littles and adults spent many an afternoon playing in the yard. Thanks for that...

Greg saw to our every need; so much so, that we only saw him once, and that was for the arrival tour. Our family is fortunate on so many levels, not the least of which was the opportunity to spend much needed time together in such an idyllic place.

Perfect for Large Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of celebrating my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary at 82 Ocean. There were twelve of us - seven adults, two teenagers and three children under age 10 – and the house was large enough to accommodate us all very easily. The house is spectacular – comfortably appointed, immaculately maintained and ideally located within walking distance to many attractions. Greg and Heather are thoughtful and attentive hosts. Any questions we had were quickly and helpfully answered. I highly recommend 82 Ocean!

Perfect for the Holidays!

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday stay at this Kennebunkport home was just what my family of six adults wanted. We spent five nights over Christmas enjoying the three decorated trees. The location was perfect. You could walk into town or head the other way and take in the ocean. The house has many gathering spaces – the kitchen, dining room, and living area – as well as smaller quiet spaces like the study and second floor reading nook. In fact, everyone had his or her own quiet sleeping area and bath. This layout allowed everyone to move easily from family time to personal time and back again. The multiple refrigerators, sinks, prep areas, and dishwashers allowed everyone to contribute her or his cooking and/or bartending talents to the holiday festivities. Greg was attentive in finalizing our stay and checked in twice to make sure all was well and ask if we had any questions although the binder of information about the house was well detailed. This was a perfect house for our family Christmas!

Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for extended family to gather and celebrate an early Christmas. Beautiful, comfortable, well maintained, with amazing views. We loved sitting in the kitchen with windows all around watching the ever changing water as the tide rose and fell, with ducks and geese coming and going. Beautiful place to view sunrise and sunsets. We will be back.

Wilson family

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home, immaculately clean and landscaped. We loved our long walks along the coastline and being able to choose from so many wonderful restaurants all within walking distance. The close proximity to town, the view of the marina from the front porch, and the river from the back, beautiful views from all windows, and all the amenities made this home a perfect choice for us.
