About the property

1 Bedroom, brand new apartment directly across the street from Long Sands Beach!

You will never regret renting this lovely one bedroom apartment right on Long Sands Beach. Built in 2012, everything is still brand new! The deck, with it's unobstructed bold ocean front views will amaze you! Sit there and watch the sunrise over the Atlantic, walk across the street for fun in the sun all day, and then enjoy a glass of wine on the deck as you watch the sunset. This is such a wonderful setting to simply relax and enjoy all Maine has to offer.

The unit features central air, cheerful kitchen and tons of windows to view the ocean. The glass enclosed deck allows you to sit and watch the waves splashing and the people strolling on the beach. The unit has one bedroom with a queen bed and a fold down futon in the livingroom. New kitchen and new bath means you do not have to worry about coming in to a rental only to find it is not updated and not clean. This unit is delightful!

The house is conveniently located steps away from Long Sands General Store. Locally owned and operated, this is the gathering spot for your morning coffee, a great take out lunch or any last minute items you need for a picnic at the beach. Just a few more steps down the beach, enjoy a summer cocktail, light lunch or very nice dinner at the Stone's Throw Restaurant.

Jump on the trolley or walk to downtown York Beach. There, you will find many more restaurants, bars, shopping, a great playground for the kids and York's Wild Kingdom. This is a zoo and small amusement park. Play mini-golf, ride the Carousel, see the animals and enjoy some cotton candy.

There is a spiral staircase to access the apartment. Parking for one small car or small SUV only. Outdoor shower. We require a minimum stay of 7 nights during the summer and unfortunately, we do not accept pets.

Awesome location!!! Unparalleled views!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 nights here last week and I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay (and wish it had been longer!). Others have spoken about the small parking space and crazy, spiral staircase and yes, in an ideal world, one would be larger and the other less scary; but we found the apartment so nice, so clean, and so well-equipped that it was easy to overlook these few drawbacks.

Our favorite thing to do was to sit on the deck and watch the ocean, beach and all of the people going by.

Wifi was excellent and the AC was nice to have at night.

We hope to make this our "regular" York accommodations.

Location, location, location!

  • 4 of 5

You cannot beat this location! The ocean views from the deck are to die for. The condo is clean, neat and has whatever you need. The spiral staircase is daunting at first, but you do get used to it. The only reason for 4 stars is the tight parking space....not much they can do about it, but it can be a challenge to park.

Great Location, Awesome View - Recommended

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location - right across the road from the beach, right near the general store. Brand new unit, great front deck area with awesome view. The property managers were nice, helpful and responsive. The only downsides to the unit are the small parking space (big cars won't fit) and the spiral staircase (hence the 4 stars instead of 5). The stairs are steep and hard to carry large loads up, so pack lightly in smaller bags. You do get used to the stairs, but I wouldn't recommend for kids or people who have trouble with stairs. Overall, I would definitely recommend this property and hope to return next summer.

This property is ideally located right on Long Sands Beach, a beautiful, sandy 2.5 mile long beach. Take the trolley to downtown York Beach. There, you will find the famous Goldenrod Candy Shop. You can stand on the sidewalk and watch how this historic restaurant makes homemade salt water taffy. Take the kids inside to visit an old fashion penny candy counter, or sit at the soda fountain and have a sundae made with the Goldenrod's homemade ice cream!

There are great souvenir shops, choose Mexican, Chinese, wood grilled pizza or fresh seafood from one of the many restaurants located within a quick walk. Many nights a week, stroll over to the gazebo to hear local bands playing in the evening. Of course, there is York Wild Kingdom which features a very nice zoo and rides for the kids. Wrist bands are good for the day so go for the zoo in the afternoon, go back to the apartment for dinner and head back for rides in the evening. Take a morning or afternoon to head to the Nubble Light House. This is one of the most photographed lighthouses in the country. Don't forget, when you are on the Nubble, visit Brown's Ice Cream, a local favorite!

We are so lucky in York. We have 4 beautiful public beaches to choose from, and if that is not enough, take a quick ride to Ogunquit and enjoy that public beach as well. While you are in Ogunquit, enjoy the shopping and dining there as well. Or make a day of it and jump on board a whale watching boat or deep sea fishing vessel in Perkins Cove.

There is so much to do in our area we just can't cover it. Of course, a Maine vacation is all about relaxing so leave yourself plenty of time to sit and enjoy the ocean. The views from the deck are spectacular! Maine really is the way life should be.
