Our late 1800's New Englander sits on a quiet dead end street, walking distance to the quaint village of Kennebunkport. We have 4 bedrooms and sleeping room for 10. Full kitchen, large family room, den, play room, and 2.5 baths. Front porch for coffee in one of the rocking chairs. Large back deck for sundown dinners and a large backyard for the kids. Great play space for wiffle ball, badminton, bean bags, etc.
Across the street, behind our neighbors is the local elementary school with playing fields and great playground. Easy stroll downtown for dinner, bars, marinas, ice cream and shopping.
All Beaches (3 Major Ones) are a bike ride or short drive away(.75 to 2.5 miles). For fisherman, all marinas, pier, jetti and Kennebunk River are .25 miles away.
We have recently made the decision to come home, at least for vacation. Originally from Kennebunk, now living in Massachusetts. We are pleased to offer access to our home and we are confident you will enjoy your stay.
Jodie purchased this house in 2012
You cannot beat the Southern Coast of Maine all year round. If summertime is your families favorite, come enjoy the beautiful beaches and the unbeatable Maine seafood. Don't forget about the holidays in Maine where the Kennebunk/Kennebunkport Prelude festivities are always one of the best times of the season. Also Sunday River is not too far for the skiers!
Our family, with our 2 young children fell in love with the charm of this house and its proximity to all the things that make Kennebunkport the New England destination it is. The spacious layout makes getaways with friends and family, comfortable and relaxing.
We stayed at this house to attend a family wedding in Kennebunkport. It was perfect for our needs and was clean and very nicely furnished. Location is quiet and close to all the shops in town.
Our two families of 4 loved staying in this house and we have already booked it again for summer of 2017. There are plenty of rooms to spread out in on the first floor, everyone had their own bed on the second floor and the grassy backyard was large enough for the 4 kids to play baseball or soccer while the adults sat and chatted on the back deck under the umbrella. The kitchen had all the supplies we needed. Everything was very clean. There was a window air unit in the kids room and one in the queen bedroom but not in the back double bedroom. The days were hot and the evenings cooled off so we opened the windows and let the cool air in at night. There were 3 small fans we moved around each night as needed. We brought our own bed linens, bath towels and beach towels. They supplied pillows and blankets. The washer and dryer worked great. There was an outdoor shower that was key for a quick kid rinse-off after a day at the beach. They provided 2 beach parking passes which was perfect. We loved Mother's and Gooch's beaches. So perfect for kids (but watch the tide schedule). Bring your own beach gear such as chairs, umbrella, boogie boards and toys. We are very excited to go back in August of 2017!
We had a great time here it was close to town and we could walk to the beach. Great location and the home exceeded our expectations it was very clean and well maintained.
Our family rented for a long weekend as several of us were running the nearby Shipyard Half Marathon. This home is immaculate and well equipped for families or small groups to spread out and relax as needed. The patio was perfect for unwinding each afternoon. The house is close to all of the sights and restaurants in downtown Kennebunkport yet away from any nighttime noise. My only concern for travelers is the linen issue; if you are flying in you will need to think ahead about linens and towels. Luckily 2 of us were driving so we squeezed in all of the linens for the rest of the group who were flying in. Overall however a wonderful home; hoping to return next year!
We were attending my son's wedding and this house was absolutely perfect for my family and two grandchildren. It is a very child friendly house with a perfect layout upstairs and down. 3 living rooms with one large room with bright bay windows that was a great play space and hangout room. There is plenty of space for sleeping with four bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms. The kitchen was easy to work in and as we had breakfast there...very nice for a group to eat in. We loved being able to walk into town. The house has everything you need, is clean, and you feel right at home there.
Jodie and Ryan's cozy home was a perfect vacation rental for my husband, 11 month old and mother in law visiting from Ireland. She can't walk very far bc of bad feet but bc the house was close to downtown KBPT, it afforded her some independence while we attended various wedding activities. The beautiful bay windows that overlook their garden was my favorite aspect of the house and the house itself is very clean and very comfortable. Since we were on a budget we made every meal at home except for twice eating lunch out at Mabel's -- the oven is not great if you're looking for a place where you'll be eating most meals at home -- fairly typical of a house rental though, not terrible.
RED FLAG - in all our years renting homes/apartments around the world, we've never been asked to bring our own linens and towels. Perhaps it's a KBPT thing. It is stated in the listing and "house rules" but I didn't really read closely as we've never experienced this aspect before. Thankfully Jodie and Ryan made an exception for us bc we could not have fit bulky linens in our car already full of stuff! It did extend our checkout though to wash the linens so just be aware before you book.
In sum, the price for the rental was higher than other homes further away from downtown KBPT but given the 2 bathrooms, several little bedrooms and more importantly, location, that's what we were paying for. Perfect for a family looking for location location location!
