Overview

Southern Coast of Maine House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom, 2 bath home overlooking Short Sands!. Fully Handicap accessible

Welcome to Bayhaven! Bold ocean views from every room of this house. Poised on the hill, overlooking the Atlantic, and Short Sands Beach beyond, you will feel like you can reach out and touch the water! Hear the roar of the surf pounding the rocks at night as you sleep. The house is beautiful, featuring 4 BR's that sleeps 11. There is a large livingroom/Diningroom with great views. The living room has a SMART TV, DVD and gas fireplace with remote. The wonderfully stocked kitchen includes a lobster pot, blender, coffee maker and everything else you would need to prepare meals. There is an awesome farmer's porch on the front and nice deck in the back. Sit and relax in the rocking chairs and watch the changing scenes of the ocean and sky. It is dramatic.

Try getting up early to watch the sun come up over the ocean's horizon or relax in the afternoon with a glass of wine and good book. Be careful...You won't want to leave!

Charming ocean view home

  • 4 of 5

We just finished our York vacation in this lovely home. As prior reviews have stated, this is well kept, clean, updated and nicely decorated. The owners have taken great care to think of almost anything you would need for your stay. Beds were comfortable and we were very pleased with the linen package. We had a problem with the grill on the deck not working and I applaud both the property management company and the owner for their almost immediate replacement. There are a couple of things that are worth noting. If you have children with you that need room to run, the available yard space is small. The living room area in this home is on the small side and really big enough for only 5 -6 people to comfortably sit to watch a movie. As described, the couch is a pull out. If you plan to sleep there beware that there are no curtains/ blinds/shades for the windows on the first floor so the light streams in in the morning and it is shining right in your eyes when sitting at the table for dinner. It made the the first level very hot in the late afternoon and evening and we were thankful to have the air conditioning. Two of the 4 bedrooms have air conditioners. The other two would benefit from it as well ( and were were there in June). When we chose this rental we chose it because my husband is not a great beach fan ( unlike the rest of the family) but loves to sit out on a porch looking out at the ocean.The photos of this property are absolutely accurate EXCEPT currently there is a home being constructed right across the street which the angle used for these photos does not show. During our week the noise from the machinery was terrible for several of the days we were there starting around 7:00 AM. The rentals for the ocean view properties in this area of York are on the steeper side which I am willing to pay but I believe when you are paying these prices something like construction going on right outside your front door should be disclosed. The construction has a ways to go so if you are renting this property over the next few months I would certainly expect to hear some noise. In the future I will ask about construction before I rent!

All that said, the owners have done a nice job with this property and I would recommend it to family and friends

Owner's Response: Thanks Carolyn for the thoughtful review. The owners have listened and plan on installing some kind of window treatments on the first floor. For those of you familiar with this home, you might remember the large yellow house directly across the street. The owner has taken it down and is in the process of rebuilding. Completion expected in Sept. 2016.

FANTASTIC PLACE, STUNNING VIEWS!

  • 5 of 5

This home was spectacular. The views amazing, walking distance to short sands beach, ice cream, meals and shopping. Plenty of space, immaculate place. Breakfast on the porch watching the waves crash on the rocks every morning was a huge delight. The realtor was so easy to deal with and I would recommend this place a million times over.

Incredible view, impeccable home!

  • 5 of 5

We went to Bayhaven during October, and it was such a beautiful, peaceful place to spend a fall weekend. The views are spectacular! The house is very clean and tastefully decorated. We stayed with 3 other couples and there was plenty of room for us to congregate together or to find a quiet spot to sit and unwind! The town of York is ADORABLE! We got to walk through during a Harvest Festival and found a great place to have a fabulous seafood dinner that evening. I

Bayhaven is an amazing getaway!

Amazing View, Amazing Time!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here the weekend starting May 29, 2014. Heidi was super accommodating. Since we were checking in prior to the busy season, we go to check-in early and check-out late for no additional fee. The house was immaculate when we arrived and we had every amenity that we would need. There were 8 of us and it never felt crowded. The pictures are so spot on. We were not misled in any way about this property. I believe we are going to make this a yearly trip for our family. If you need a quiet, relaxing place with a great view, don't look any further than Bayhaven! You won't regret it!
