Overview

About the property

4 bedroom , 1 bath, sleeps 8 plus an outdoor shower

The house is a perfect location with direct beach access a minute away. The house was completely remodeled a year ago and is clean and bright. It has a open family room, dining room and kitchen area with a flat screen TV. There is a large yard and an outdoor shower.

The ocean has plenty of sea treasures to find on daily walks, small waves at low tide to play in and plenty of sand to make sand castles with or to just relax. The community has a great family appeal with plenty of kids at the beach and people who return to this area year after year. Also, in the Saco area are 2 amusements parks, 2 water parks and a great state park to ride bikes. Saco/Ferry Beach is 20 minutes from Portland which has the best restaurants in Maine - it was name by Bon Appetit as the 'Foodiest Small Town in America. ' Saco is also close to Kennebunkport, Freeport (home of LL Bean) and Kittery (great outlet shopping).

Looking for 2 houses together ?: We own two houses in ferry beach. The house listed above (listing #328275 - 6 Eagle Ave) and 5 Island View (listing # 271955). The houses are on different streets but back up to each other and share a back yards. There is a path that connects the houses. It is perfect for family renunions or friends traveling together.

Both houses are 4 bedrooms.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Yes, we indeed enjoyed our stay at your home. Clean, clear, roomy, well organized and stuffed! We were with our sons, their spouse and two grandchildren. Everyone had its own quiet area whereas a large common area could receive us all. We even could have dinner one night with an additional couple.



The availability of all those toys for the kids, the chairs and the buggy to carry our things onto the beach made us feel at home. The beach is just enough crowded... I like to see and hear people, and the kids could play with other kids; I would feel isolated on a beach like the more exclusive Biddeford pool area.



The proximity to the beach is great advantage. Even if we have to walk in the street for some three hundred feet (?), the traffic is minimal and drivers are careful. The neighbourhood is quiet.

Great, flexible space for family beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this house, cozy bedrooms and then a big kitchen/living/dining room that we all had enough space to stretch out in. The beach is just a few steps away, which allowed us a lot of flexibility for frequent back-and-forths.

Excellent Location!

  • 4 of 5

The owner was exceptional with her communication and was always quick to be in touch with us. We cannot say enough about dealing with Cori, very professional. The location of this property was wonderful, just 4 houses from a nice quiet beach. We had young children with us and it was so nice not to have to load up a car or travel a long way to get back to house for naps or lunches. The only things we would change would be the requirement to bring your own linens and fact that the place is not professionally cleaned (even if it was just a spot clean) between guests. It was strange that previous guest cleaned for us and we did the same for the guest coming in for us. We would have been fine leaving the place how we found it, but still feel for the money we would have felt better knowing a pro came through before we arrived. A little maintenance would also go a long way. House could use fresh coat of paint and the deck is a hazard given our kids got many splinters from wood on deck being neglected. These are just small things and really did not hinder our overall experience. We were looking for a nice place that was close to the beach and that is exactly what this place provided. Overall an amazing week and would not hesitate coming back or recommending to others.
