Why Donna chose Old Orchard Beach
MOST IMPORTANT!!! This is our home & we take pride in our weekly cleanings. It is very important to us that our guest arrive to clean comfortable environment. Park your car for the week, because you are just a short 5 minute walk to 7 miles of sandy beach, downtown attractions, Amtrack Downeaster, Memorial Park w/playground, basketball & tennis courts and shopping. Quiet and relaxing
What makes this House unique
The residential neighborhood sits on a hill. (Fort Hill) A short walk to the beach and downtown attractions, but away from the crowds. The large fenced yard, w/tree swing & plenty of space for lawn games. This fenced in yard offers parents a safe place for children to run and play while adults can kick back and relax after a day at the beach. Owner lives a block away and is always available to renter's needs.

Lovely Beach House
Donna, the owner, was an excellent host. We booked the week of July 4-11 th a few months ahead of time and she was very thorough in answering emails and phone calls and never once made us feel like we were troubling her. Our family of six plus my mother in law found the home to be the perfect set up for us . She stayed in the master bedroom with adjoining bathroom on the first floor and there was enough room for my husband, myself and our 4 kids (ages 15,10 and five year old twins) on the second floor, which had two bedrooms with full size beds, a tiny, yet, adequate bathroom (large people or people with mobility issues will want to stay/shower on the first floor) as well as a twin bed and a sofa that can be slept on in the common area. The house was extremely clean and well appointed. (Internet was very spotty, though)
Donna sweetly left us a welcome bag for the children, which they enjoyed so much! The yard was was very nice and well kept, and was fenced in which was such a bonus! not many other houses in the area even have a yard. Plenty of parking, too.
The beach was a bit further than we expected and although wagons are provided, you may wish to have someone drive to the beach and drop off, then walk back, especially if you have small children. (There is an uphill walk coming back from the beach.)
The pier was a short walk (about 10 min)away, also. I'm glad we weren't much closer as it gets pretty crowded and noisy. The fireworks are set off every Thursday at 9:45 pm. So much fun!
There is also a convenience store and pizza place not even a block away.
It was our first time in Old Orchard Beach and I can say we truly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you, Donna!
We had an amazing trip. We met up with friends from Halifax (almost a 1/2 way point between us) and it was the perfect location for our 2 families! We had 4 adults and 3 children. We found that there was enough room for all of us comfortably. The kitchen was stocked with everything we could possibly want, the yard was fenced in (we fashioned a lock on one of the gates as the 3 year olds wanted to "escape") - which with 3 kids was a bonus! We were close enough to the beach so that all the kids could walk there and back without too much complaint (about 10 minutes - though this would be less without the 3 year olds) and Donna had tons of sand toys for the kids and a wagon to hold everything. We took our stroller with us, but Donna had a second stroller for our friends. Everything was perfect for us and we would stay there again in a heartbeat! (the only thing we would want would be laundry, but that was available right up the road and I understand from Donna that this will likely be available next summer). Donna is a great host and made us feel welcome right away. She was great with the kids - we could not have asked for a better vacation. Enjoy!
What you see is what you get! :-)
It was our first vacation rental and we where please with this location. The house is exactly what you see in the add. 5 min walk to the beach and close to all the action whitout being in the middle of it. Spacious house, clean and a verry nice and helpfull ownwer. :-)
Home Away From Home
This property provided everything our group of 7 (4 adults, 3 kids) could possibly need during our one week stay in OOB. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by the homeowner who gave us a complete tour of the home and all its amenities and presented us with a welcome gift bag. The home was spotless, well-maintained, and inviting, and was even better in person than what we had seen in the photos online.
The home had everything we needed for our stay including a gas BBQ, full-sized fridge and freezer, stove, microwave, and dishwasher, eliminating the need to eat out (except for the occasional treat!) The little extras provided, such as a wagon, beach umbrella, sand toys, etc. were greatly appreciated and saved precious trunk space for the road trip from home.The huge fenced-in yard was the best bonus of all and was well-used by the three children in our group.
The location was easy-to-find and was conveniently located within walking distance (even for the 3 kids!) of the beach, pier, and downtown tourist attractions.
If you're looking for a home away from home while on vacation with your family, this is the perfect place to stay. We'd recommend it in a heartbeat and would gladly stay here again for our next trip to OOB.
