Excellent location, very clean and wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

The home has a great view of the beach. You can time high tide before heading to the beach. We were able to walk to the town even with a three year old. It's a compact home And offers three season porch and a nice large deck outside. We didn't grill but wish we had brought food and not a lot of grocery options. There are a lot of eating out options in a 3 minute walk. They have fine dinning to pizza and clam shacks.

We also walked to the animal kingdom. The kids loved the petting zoo and the rides. It was reasonably priced. The adult played some video games and batting cages.

The home owner came to meet us and was flexible and welcoming. She was honest and easy to work with. We got our deposit back quickly and there was no surprises.

First rental I have ever been in that I did not feel I needed to clean as soon as I got in. Location was perfect in a beautiful area. Owners very nice to deal with. Would definitely rent again. Wonderful vacation. Laurie Swanfeldt

Perfectly located homely little cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Deb's cottage for a week with the 2 grandchildren. It was ideal for us being only a short walk from both Short Beach and downtown. The cottage was spotlessly clean when we arrived. The 2 bedrooms are quite small but a double bed for us 2 singles for the girls was fine - we spent most of the time outdoors. We didn't use the pull out bed. The kitchen is perfectly well equipped, (provided you don't want to cook a gourmet meal!) and there is large grill on the deck. The living room and porch have plenty of comfy seating plus TV etc. There are a lot of nice little touches such as providing the kitchen basics - such as washing liquid for the washing machine - so that you don't need to spend your first morning in the supermarket and a couple of chairs to take to the beach. Deb couldn't have been more helpful providing us with beach towels as we did not have enough, and, when we asked, giving us a list of suggested places to eat. The girls were sorry to leave and so were we.

Location, location, location.

  • 5 of 5

This is an adorable cottage in the perfect location. The owner is wonderful to work with and invited us to watch the fireworks with them. The cottage has been recently renovated, all fresh and clean with very nice finishes and furniture. The patio has an ocean view and is very spacious. Perfect place to enjoy your BBQ outside or dine in on the front porch. Parking is easy, little pet is welcomed and the walk to the beach is just minutes.Although the cottage is relatively small, every inch of space is well used. Perfect for a small family. A lot of attention has been paid to the small details to make your vacation more enjoyable. We had a simply wonderful time - thank you.

This charming cottage is a minute walk from Short Sands Beach. The town is filled with many dining selections ranging from Mexican to seafood to pizza to breakfast specialties to the famous Golden Rod! (don't forget the taffy)! Within a short walk is the York Wild Kingdom Zoo and Long Sands Beach. The most photographed lighthouse in the world (The Nubble) is just around the corner. The family will love searching for sea creatures, boogie boarding and the free nightly concerts at the bandstand. There is abundant shopping with the Kittery Outlets and the many quaint little shops in the village to the artist's flare of Ogunquit just 15 minutes north.
