See our two non-oceanfront, walk to the beach houses at Goose Rocks Beach at VRBO #'s 355279 and 820059......
We close our beach house for the real winter months of January, February, and March. We usually open the house for the season in late March or whenever we get our first request.
Directly on Goose Rocks Beach, Kennebunkport, Maine the most spectacular feature of our home is it's location. Situated at the northeast end of Goose Rocks Beach the home has views of Timber Island, the Cape Porpoise Islands, most of Goose Rocks Beach itself, and open Atlantic Ocean. There are beach steps in the front yard leading down to our own stretch of beach.
The first floor of the house has three bedrooms and two baths. The master bedroom has a king size bed, oceanfront sliding door leading to small ground floor deck, and en suite bath with soaker tub and separate stall shower. The first of the two smaller bedrooms also has an oceanfront sliding door leading to a ground floor deck and is furnished with two twin beds. The second smaller bedroom has windows on the yard and is also furnished with two twin beds. The two bedrooms share a bath across the hall with a tub and shower combo.
The entryway is open to the second floor and has stairs leading to the second floor. The view of the ocean, islands, and beach from the second floor is stunning. The living room, dining room, and kitchen are open concept. The dining room table is set into it's own bay window providing unlimited ocean views. The kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher and microwave and also has our unlimited view. The living room is comfortable and has cable television and internet access if you bring your own laptop. There is a 1/2 bath tucked into a corner of the second floor for convenience. Both the living area and kitchen have sliding doors opening onto the second floor deck well equipped with table and chairs.
We do provide sheets and towels for the house and it is fully equipped for cooking. We like to say "All you need to do is bring your suitcase and food!"

The view of the beach and islands....
We had a wonderful time playing at Goose Rocks Beach. The house is lovely and had everything we needed. Bruce was great to work with. The water is shallow and the tide goes out a long way giving us lots of options for playing in the water. We kayaked in the tidal river and had a great time playing on the rocks that appear at low tide. The water was even warm! Well, warm for Maine.
The beds were comfy and the linens were all there. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. Thank you Bruce for a wonderful time!
I cannot think of a better getaway! Blessed with great weather at the end of October, being beachfront is still the very best. We traveled to Maine, just to walk, catch up, talk, and alternate light cooking with dining out. We were delighted to find enough sun to sit on the expansive deck a bit. The best part about this quiet end of Goose Rocks Beach is the massive tide, which provides beautiful long walks adjacent to Timber Island, which itself is worth a visit, not just to see the house from another angle! Bruce, the owner, was a delight to deal with, and besides the incredible location, the house was fresh, expansive, and had everything for a perfect stay. I really appreciated, the all inclusive price, and that the linens were provided, just arrive with food and wine, and chill! We were lucky to get one last cocktail at the Tides and a meal at Earth before they closed for the season. The Wayfarer, in Cape Porpoise, is a great stop for any meal the rest of the year. We will be back, if we can find a spot!
EXCEPTIONAL!!! Views you can't believe. We have stayed here for the last several years and have never been disappointed. The owner is wonderful . . . very friendly, helpful, available and considerate. Fresh flowers, Fireplaces(2) ready for use. More than I expected and look forward to returning year after year.
Though we have visited Kennebunkport before, this was our first time at Goose Rocks. We must say that this home was an exceptional find. It was like having a home away from home only this one has a waterfront view that is spectacular. It is very well maintained and the owner was only a phone call away to answer any questions we had. This home is close enough to Dock Square that we ventured there several times during our week long visit. Though we did eat quite a few of our meals in, we enjoyed several of the local restaurants as well. We will absolutely rent this property again! Loved, loved, loved this home!
If you are looking for a home right on the ocean with a spectacular view--this is the "real deal". Nestled on a quiet stretch of Goose Rocks Beach the home we have enjoyed for the past few Septembers has a large deck overlooking the ocean that provides amazing sunrise and sunset views! The attentive and wonderful owners have created a home that is large enough for entertaining yet small enough to offer that cozy beach feel. What a find!!
Exceptional location, wonderful accomodations and absolute responsive, attentive property managers. The photos can not possibly capture the beauty, serenity and wonderful people of Goose Rocks Beach. The property is exceptionally maintained and the owners are completely accomodating. I would absolutely recommend this property to not only friends, but close family and anyone who loves a beautiful, peaceful setting.
