About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps Up To 8 With Beautiful Ocean Views

A cozy, comfortable, un-winterized traditional Maine cottage with the ocean literally in the backyard. In the heart of a summer residential community, our family summer home is next door to a full children's recreational swimming, sailing, tennis, golf, marine biology and arts program sponsored by the Kennebunk Beach Improvement Association. Additional activities are focused outdoors with a child-safe tidal cove for swimming as the water comes in over the warm clam flats, a gorgeous public beach with town lifeguards and bathroom facilities, walks to quiet estuaries and neighboring public beaches, shopping in nearby Kennebunk Lower Village and Kennebunkport, close to amusements and supermarkets when needed. This is not an investment property; it's our family home for rent starting early June through Labor Day, and by special arrangement into mid-September.

Indoors, the cottage features four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, modern appliances, 72-channel cable service downstairs with DVD player, all linens furnished, rent includes all utilities and taxes, space for parking two cars. Outside, a porch surrounds three sides of the house, an outdoor wash off shower, double kayak with paddles and PFDs, lawn furniture and gas grille.

Excellent family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent family vacation at this cottage. Our children, ages 4 and 6, spent hours and hours each day playing on the beach just steps from the back porch. Some days, we rowed out in the rowboat to explore the cove; other days, we collected seashells and found hermit crabs in the tide pools. It was also great to have a full playground and a large sandy beach so close. The cottage itself was simple and traditional, very clean, with picturesque water views of the Maine coast. The location is convenient: accessible from New York City, with full supermarkets in town and many options for restaurants and activities in the area. One day we took an excursion to give our children their first horseback riding lessons. The owner was always extremely helpful and made sure everything about our stay was smooth.

Owner's Response: Our summer cottage is ideal for families with young children, and this family said they hit the jackpot. The parents are keen on having their children see other parts of Maine further up the coast and inland in the coming years or else they would be back next year. This family left the house incredibly clean which was very consistent with how considerate they were of their landlord. A highly successful visit all the way around...I'd have them back in a minute. What I loved was they made the best use of a delightful spot with real family time at the center!

Quiet, relaxing authentic beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a week at this charming and comfortable beach house. It was perfect for our many generations of family. The owners are inviting and helpful without being invasive and have provided everything you would need for a great beach vacation, including beach chairs and sand toys! You are steps from a small protected beach, perfect for small children, and just a couple houses down from Mother's beach and a little playground. Breakfast on the porch overlooking the changing tides and dinner on the beautifully kept lawn watching the sunsets to the sounds of the waves. If what you want is a quiet, relaxing home-like place to spend time with family and soak in the beauty of the ocean then this is the place!

Owner's Response: Before their departure, these tenants affirmed their plans to return next year July 12 - 19, 2014 and expressed their total satisfaction saying, "Your website doesn't do justice to how beautiful and comfortable your simple vacation cottage is in real life." David and Jane Smith, owners
