Amazing house. So close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Owner was super nice and welcoming, let us in a bit early as we were traveling with small children. House was amazing, many beds to accommodate a large family. 5 minutes from long sands and 10 to short (with many kids in tow). Highly recommended.

Loved, loved, loved the house and location!

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from one of our best stays at York. Weather was great, house was top notch, and location was smack in the middle of Long Sands and Short Sands. Plenty of room for two families to stay together and have friends visit for the day. House is well equipped and clean, clean, clean. Day one we decided to rent again next year and we hadn't been to the beach yet. Close enough to walk back for bathroom and resupplying the water and snacks.

Best Stay Ever

  • 5 of 5

For many years three generations of our family spend a week in a house in York Beach, Maine. This has been our favorite house by far. The house is spacious and clean with an excellent location to both Long Sands and Short Sands. We cannot wait to come back!!!

Perfect Place for Our Family's Needs

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. So close to both beaches that walking wasn't an issue at all, even for the older kids. Plenty of room for the 12 of us. The kids were in different areas of the house playing together. It was great!

Fabulous Property at a Wonderful Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been vacationing in the York Beach area for 60+ years, and we were thrilled with our recent vacation at this fantastic house. It was even better than we had hoped. There was plenty of room for our extended family (including 5 kids, ages 2 thru 16) to spread out and relax... GREAT location (with easy walks to both Long and Short Sands Beaches, as well as numerous town attractions), a generous parking area, and a spacious yard. The house is very well equipped and meticulously maintained. It was a great choice for our family, and I'd highly recommend it for other large families.

Perfect Family Beach Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect and even better than pictures show. You couldn't ask for more from the location to the beaches and downtown. Yard was a great surprise and perfect for our kids to play. Wide open downstairs and multiple rooms have plenty of nooks for folks to go and read or relax. Kitchen is a great size with island and farm table for everyone to enjoy. We WILL be back!!
