Overview

Biddeford House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3+ Br, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8), SOOOO Close to the beach (almost private).

Wonderfully decorated and renovated. Third house from the beach. Very spacious. New refinished wood flooring throughout in 2014. New windows in 2015 and resided the whole exterior in 2016. It's never looked this good!

We have another rental for a multifamily getaway. See it here: vrbo #395829

CHECK OUT THE REVIEWS....

You will love this newly renovated cottage, 'Sea Escape'. It is so close to the ocean, the beach will feel like it's in your front yard. The beach is only stone's throw from the front door. Once on the beach you will find a majestic, panoramic view of 9 islands (one with a lighthouse), Saco River inlet with a jetty to climb on and fish from, etc. If you have a boat, bring it!

An outside shower is fun to use or just rinse the kids off...

Hill's Beach is very quiet and just far enough to get away from all the tourist beaches. For the most part, the only people who frequent this area of beach are those who live on the street, approximately 10 houses. So the large, sandy beach is almost all yours!

If you have kids (like our family), you will enjoy the peace of mind being on a side street with very little traffic and the large yard for the kids to run and play while they wait for the short walk to the beach.

It looks small from the outside, but it is over 1500 sq. feet. Completely furnished and renovated with washer/dryer. It is an all season 3 bedroom home, air conditioning and wood floors, fully applianced kitchen.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We recently spent Labor Day weekend at Sea Escape. We were very fortunate. The weather was wonderful and Sea Escape provided the comfortable setting in which to enjoy it! Due to Hurricane "Irene", our plans were rather "last minute" and the owners were very helpful in arranging them. Sea Escape is larger than it appears in the pictures with most of the rooms quite roomy! The street is quiet and provides easy beach access. A nice feature are the updates with dishwasher, washer and dryer, etc.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our second time at Sea Escape. Best Location in Southern Maine. Great weather and memories. Property had been upgraded since our last visit. Would love to see a gas grill and some upgraded kitchen supplies. But still an awesome place to stay.

Family Get Together

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Family from as far away as Wisconsin were there. Lots of room inside. Big common spaces were appreciated. The front porch with the water view and ceiling fan was a favorite hangout. Being able to walk to the beach was priceless. No parking hassles. And we walked to Buffleheads, just down the street, for a great meal outside overlooking the water. A great home base or daytime excursions. The one regret is that we only had 1 week of vacation.

Perfect spot for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our 6th year returning to the Sea Escape, which has become one of our favorite vacation spots. We are a family of 4 plus a dog and we all have plenty of space to spread out and the kids have room to play (inside and out). The house is literally steps to the beach, which is a huge plus. Biddeford is a hidden gem - so close to Kennebunk, Portland, Funtown Splashtown (Saco), Wells and more! We look forward to returning next year!

Quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

A quiet neighborhood and relaxing vacation spot. Beautiful views especially at low tide. The house was spacious and comfortable. Many thanks for allowing pets. My dog is glued to me and I couldn't leave her home.

A perfect escape...

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful New England area. Close to local attractions and yet a quite local place. So close to the beach. The kids loved it. Thanks for opening your home to us!

Far enough away for quiet, yet close enough to all of southern Maine.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the close beach, amenities (like the outside shower), hose, porches, beach toys for the kids. Went to Kennebunkport a few times. Thanks for allowing us to bring our dog (even she loved the beach).

Brand new windows, too! Nice touch. Well done. Looking forward to coming back this summer.
