About the property

4/5 bedrooms (1 futon/bedroom), 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 11

Restful, relaxing, restorative. Plenty of privacy, with views of fields and a pond. Our home has an open floor plan, with an all new kitchen in 2013, with added cathedral ceiling and skylights. Lots of natural light and space! A new bar separates the kitchen and dining area which comfortably seats eight. Walk out to the large deck for your morning cup of coffee or afternoon cocktail. A night-time favorite is reclining in the deck chairs and star gazing for an extraordinary show! There is a 16 x 16 lower deck with a raised fire pit to sit around making memories. A new natural stone walkway was installed professionally along with specifically chosen grasses and shrubs to enhance your enjoyment. Back inside, the living room is adjacent to the dining area, which has a 55' T.V, complete with DVR. High Speed Wireless internet is provided. Down the hallway is a very private master bedroom which also has a very spacious feel with cathedral ceilings and a private bath. The guest bath off the kitchen area and east facing bedroom off the living room as well as a futon/TV room round out the main floor. The two downstairs daylight bedrooms and sitting area are very comfortable on hot summer days. We welcome well-behaved pets.

Surrounding Location: : Kennebunkport is a very charming town with lots of character. Our property is located approximately 4 miles from the town center and only 2 miles from Goose Rocks Beach, a lovely secluded beach known for it's beautiful bright white soft sand & wide beach area. Perfect for families. The beach is surrounded mostly by summer homes, but there is a 'General Store' where basic beach needs are available. They also have a deli with delicious submarine sandwiches for picnics or simply when you want a laid back lunch in the sun! Our home is located in a area perfect for walkers and cyclists. Miles of quiet roads are waiting to be explored by both the avid cyclist and families alike. Welcome to our home!

My husband and I spent our wedding Anniversary at Joanne & Bruce Kennebunkport home and it was absolutely amazing.. The home is well kept, the pictures does not do the home justice.. They have a really beautiful home.. It is very clean, the owners thought about everything to make you feel at home. The only thing you need is food..Our 5 year old son loved it, he had lot of toys to play with..

The property is located in the perfect location for people who wants to enjoy a peaceful and quite vacation.. The back yard fire pit was a plus for relaxing after a day at the beach.. We wanted to enjoy a quiet family getaway vacation and we did.. We will definately contact Joanne and Bruce to plan another stay in the near future.. Even though we did not get to see the owners they kept intouch with us throughout the stay.. They were also kind enough to leave a complimentary bottle of champagne for me and my husband Anniversary celebration.. We really appreciated the hospitality and would recommend this home to anyone.. It's worth every penny, you won't regret it.

perfect, perfect, perfect...... for our family. 2 years in a row.....

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed all over. Even Hawaii. This is still our favorite. The house is perfect for us. With the main floor open, the kids can run around, but not be in our way. lol. They also have a great play space downstairs.

The upper deck is perfect. Great grill and great views. The lower deck is our favorite. Smores every night. And adult beverages late into the night, under a blanket off stars, warmed by the fire.

But we are a family that enjoys staying home after a day at the beach. Kennebunkport is a vacation, but this house is a vacation in itself for us.

The house has EVERYTHING. Really. Just fill the frig and your set.

And last but not least, the hosts...... Perfect. Accommodating is an understatement. We wish we could be their friends......

A Real Gem Near Goose Rocks Beach

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded our expectations! Every room in this home was just beautiful. The owners obviously took great care in decorating and were very thoughtful about what guests may need. The kitchen was clean, easy and fun to cook in and very well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, etc. Bruce and Joanne greeted us upon our arrival, said hello to our children and dog and were on their way. Joanne sent a brief text the following day to check in and otherwise allowed us our privacy. A major bonus for us was 2 parking passes for the Kennebunk beaches. This was unexpected and very appreciated! Bruce and Joanne also left a bottle of wine, fresh flowers and ice cream for the children. We felt very welcome in their home and would certainly recommend it to others. We hope to visit again soon!

Perfect Summer Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I just loved this house. We have rented before and always found we had to bring so many things like spices, salt and pepper etc.. But these owners thought of everything. All you needed was your beach towels, food and clothes!

Joanne and Bruce could not have been nicer. Every room in their home was cozy and beautifully decorated. The beach was close and there was a Summer Theater close by for entertainment. I am looking forward to my next vacation there!

Perfect House

  • 5 of 5

Very quiet and private. Fully equipped kitchen. Extremely clean, charming, and beautifully decorated. Sliding glass doors lead you out to the upper deck for coffee in the morning, and grilling for dinner. A lower deck with a fire pit for enjoying an evening cocktail. Beautiful backyard for letting the kids and the dogs romp around and play. Plenty of parking with a carport next to the back door. No need to worry about losing the house keys. It's keyless entry. Goose Rocks beach is only 5 minutes from the house and quaint downtown Kennebunkport is nearby too. This will be our first choice when we return to Kennebunkport for vacation.

Picturesque Kennebunkport & Lower Village of Kennebunk are cradled between the Kennebunk River & the Atlantic. ‘The port' center, also known as Dock Square, lies to the east side of the river & Lower Village. Dock Square offers fine gift, clothing and jewelry shops, art galleries, and some of the finest restaurants on the Maine Coast. While shipbuilding & fishing were historically the primary focus of the Kennebunks, the area has long been a popular seaside tourist destination and holds the distinctive reputation of being one of the most romantic vacation areas in New England. Lovely seaside ‘summer cottages’ line Ocean Avenue which leads you to the famous 'Bush Compound' located on Walker's Point. The fishing village of Cape Porpoise, the ‘quiet side’ of Kennebunkport, is just 4 miles away with beautiful views of the working Cape Porpoise Harbor, its many islands and Goat Island Lighthouse. A perfect vacation spot for those who like to cycle, shop, walk, enjoy nature & the beach.
