Overview

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!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review Latoya!! It was a pleasure to have you vacation at our home! Hopefully the next time our schedules will allow for us to meet you "face to face", We as well feel fortunate to be so close to Goose Rocks Beach and downtown Kennebunkport's shopping and activities, yet removed enough to be quiet and tranquil when that is what we need. We would be more than happy to have you come back and vacation with us again!

Immaculate and great location

  • 5 of 5

The hosts thought of everything. Beautiful home, quiet location yet close to downtown Kennebunkport & Goose Rocks Beach. We had our grandchildren with us, and the array of toys and games for the kids was an unexpected delight. We can't wait to go back!

A true "home away" from home.

  • 5 of 5

It was wonderful being able to go someplace to stay where everything imaginable was provided for you and all you had to think about bringing was food.

The home owners could not have been more considerate in their care and concern for those that rent their home.

Private home with plenty of space and great location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with 6 other adults for a long weekend in September and we had a great time. We enjoyed having 4 bedrooms to use so we all had our own space. The house was stocked with everything we needed- kitchen, linens, etc. The backyard and deck were private and spacious. WiFi and Netflix available. We had a blast biking on the quiet roads and downtown and beaches were a short drive away.

Great house and location! Very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Joanne and Bruce for the use of your home for our vacation. It is a beautiful home in an excellent area. My family and I really enjoyed our stay here and hope to do it again next year. The house was so clean and well taken care of. All of the amenities were there other than food which was a very nice touch. The fire pit at night was a very nice touch as well . So relaxing! Looking forward to seeing you again next year. Thanks so much from me and my family!

Sincerely,

Rich

Everything you could want

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed at this home and it won't be the last. Everything we wanted was available and more. Beautiful sheets and towels... most places we usually bring our own even if they are offered, but not here. Joanne's are nicer than mine at home! Fantastic kitchen for cooking and equally awesome deck to enjoy meals, have a bonfire or just take in the view of the pond and its animals. So quiet, comfortable and relaxing to come back to after exploring the area. Fantastic proximity to Goose Rocks Beach, one of our favorites. Joanne stocks everything you could need... from kitchen essentials like olive oil and coffee to soap and shampoo in the baths and outdoor shower. She welcomes you from the time you book, to your entrance to the airy, clean house with flowers, a nice note and treat and then stays in touch should you need anything during your stay. I felt like I was staying at a family member's home who couldn't wait for me to visit. Genuine hospitality and we cannot wait to return. Thanks for sharing your home!

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.
