Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bath Townhouse, sleeps 10

Newly carpeted and freshly painted for 2017! New stainless steel appliance kitchen package as well!!

This 2300 sq.ft. townhouse is just 500 ft. from beautiful Short Sands Beach and a 3 minute bike ride to Long Sands Beach. The location is centrally located in York Beach Village, just steps away from the shops and restaurants. The village is undergoing a revitalization and you will be at the very heart of it!! This property is becoming a favorite place for families attending weddings at the Union Bluff Hotel due to its size, number of bedrooms and the 2 minute walk from the Hotel.

The main floor is bright and open with attractive, modern kitchen, living room, dining area, full bathroom and queen bedroom. Boasting hardwood floors and a slider leading out to the deck for relaxing and those eat-in barbeques.

There are three bedrooms and 2 full baths upstairs all freshly carpeted and painted. There is an outdoor shower which is a must when those sandy little ones return from a day at the beach. There is parking for two cars. Please contact owner about additional parking needs!!

Loads of summer beach activities are just a few steps away from your unit. York's Wild Kingdom and Amusement Park offers activities for the kids at a reasonable all day inclusive price. Check the zoo in the morning before the animals retreat from the heat, walk home for lunch and a siesta and then walk back for the rides a little later!! If you don't want to make lunch multiple dining options are located on the walk between your beach paradise and the park!!

Short Sands Beach is just steps away as well. The property has beach chairs, beach toys and a beach cart for your convenience. The beach area has an arcade, playground, basketball courts and a summer music series at the public gazebo.

Long Sands beach is accessible as well by 15 minute walk, 3 minute bike ride or quick ride by car. The historic Nubble Lighthouse is located less than 5 minutes by car as well between the two beach areas. For those who like to jog/run/walk, the three mile scenic roundtrip to the light house can't be beat!!

Nearby activities include Perkin's Cove in Ogunquit that is a scenic 10 minute ride from your beach paradise off of Shore Road. There you will find more shops, dining, deep sea fishing, scenic cruises and the famous Marginal Way. The Outlet shopping of Kittery is 10 minutes away for a rainy day activity. Even something for the men on a shopping trip as they scour the multi-level Kittery Trading Post for all their outdoors needs! LL Bean is also about an hour away as well.

Both the City of Portsmouth NH and Portland ME are less than an hour away and offer a multitude of activities, dining, historic sites and shopping opportunities as well. Water Country is an exciting waterpark 20 minutes away that offers water slides and pools for all ages. Old Orchard Beach and Saco ME also have amusement parks as well at less than a 45 minute drive away. The Portland Sea Dogs is a great night out with tickets for a family of four costing less than the cost of one ticket at Fenway Park!!

Whatever your families needs are for summer fun you are sure to satisfy them with this modern town home as your base! Whether you just park the car for the week and enjoy all the sun and fun within walking distance of your unit or take daytrips to further enhance your vacation experience, this is sure to be your "Happy Place" at the end of the day!!!

Highest Rated Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed for a week and were overwhelmed with the ‘family feel’ this had to offer. For the first vacation that I can recall, it truly felt like a home away from home. Clean, accommodating, a few minutes’ walk to downtown and beach location, absolutely perfect. Looking forward to coming back next summer!

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental was just perfect for our family of 5 adults and 3 kids. The location made it perfect to be walkable to Short Sands and York beach and we felt safe to let the teenagers come and go as they pleased. The townhouse it self was very clean and we loved the open concept and layout. The beds were one of the most comfortable we had in a house rental. We will highly recommend staying here!

Clean and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The town home was a perfect location and appropriate size for our family. We came in town for a weekend to attend a wedding. We were walking distance to the Union Bluff for all the wedding activities which was wonderful. The home was clean, comfortable bedding and a nice living room area so we could all sit in one space and visit.

Great location, great house!

  • 5 of 5

This house was in a great location. The home was just as described and pictured. The home was bright and cheery. There was plenty of room for everyone stretch out and relax. The house was clean and had all the amenities you need for a wonderful vacation. There was a nice bottle of wine waiting for us on arrival. The house is steps from the beach and the center.

We love this place.

  • 5 of 5

We love this property. Very spacious and close to shopping, beaches and games and playground for the children. It was well stocked and even had a lovely bottle of wine as a surprise. Our only suggested would be to check with the people who clean. Could do a better job but that is not a refection of the owner. They were available to answer any questions and make our stay pleasant. We would highly recommend staying here.

Beautiful, big, and new beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This house was much nicer than I was expecting. Clean, decorated nicely, with a bottle of wine to greet us! It's probably fair to say that the downstairs kids play area that's mentioned in some of the reviews is not available anymore, but even without it there was plenty of room for our group. Be sure to stick to your side of the parking area though (it's a condo so there's a unit next door). We were over on his side a bit because we thought he may not be using it that weekend. When he came in we immediately offered to move it but he was very rude. Save yourself that issue and stay only on the left parking lot!

Nancy was a pleasure to work with, always a day responder and very accommodating. I would stay at this house again!

York Beach is a fun summer vacation spot with three beaches within close proximity. The beach center includes a variety of restaurants and nightlife such as Inn-on-the Blues and the Union Bluff. Children will delight in watching taffy being made at the Goldenrod, playing in the arcade, or eating homemade ice cream while taking in the beauty of the famous Nubble Light House. The Kittery Outlets are only a 15 minute drive and a great place for girl's shopping weekend.
