About Jon Stewart

The owner is a local Saco businessman with a love for the ocean, fishing, and the wonderful atmosphere in Camp Ellis.

Jon Stewart purchased this house in 2013

Why Jon Stewart chose Saco

This property is Right on the beach - not across the street, down the street, or water access. You can walk out the back gate and you are on the beach! If you like fishing, boating, walking on the beach, or just listening to the waves, this is the place for you.

What makes this house unique

The second floor balcony view is mesmerizing! You can sit on the swing on the balcony and just watch the waves, the birds, fish jumping, local lobster men and other fisherman. The fresh ocean breeze is so nice!

Great sister retreat!

  • 4 of 5

My sister and I stayed at this house and it was great. It had everything we needed and the balcony off the large bedroom upstairs was outstanding. The hot tub on the back porch was very clean and we were able to enjoy that every night with a margarita and/or beer. Had AC but bring a fan for the upstairs as the AC doesn't really get up there but then all you have to do is open the door to the outside balcony and get the breeze coming in from the water at night. Missing it already.

Great location but needs checked prior to renters arriving

  • 4 of 5

Would have given 5 stars except there was an issue with the plumbing. It was sorted out but maybe the house should be checked before renters arrive. Also there were no drinking glasses - again an issue a check before hand would would have remedied. Sofa Bed is also uncomfortable.

Otherwise the house is in great quiet location and the restaurant opposite had good food. Jon, the owner, responded quickly to our complaints.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Without question the plumbing issue should not have happened and I was surprised the previous guest did not mention it. The issues have now all been resolved.

Perfect for a quiet trip with small child/children

  • 5 of 5

Jon has a great spot. Once the car is parked, it does not need to be used again as a good restaurant for take-out and fine dining is steps away. The general store is about 1/4 mile away and has everything plus pizza, subs, breakfast, steamers, Lobster, etc.. There is a $1 trolley that gets you to the pier at Old Orchard Beach in about 15 minutes. The beach behind the house seems almost private. It was perfect for our 3 year old!! The nearby pier offered fishing and crabbing and we met Jon's brother Todd who has a charter boat. We had a great trip fishing and pulling lobster traps with Todd. A .10 mile walk gets you to the big beach facing the Ocean. The property is just as described except the deck is bigger than it looks in the pictures. Great times!!

Great place for vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property this month and since we have been home my kids and husband have done nothing but ask when we can go back to this house. Clean, cozy, and convenient especially with kids. Having the beach literally right off the back deck was the most convenient part of this home. Being a mom of small kids, I couldn't have asked for a better find. We can't wait to go back!

Beautiful setting! The beach is literally in the backyard!

  • 5 of 5

The place is older but nice and well maintained. We had a great long weekend. Kids had a blast playing on the beach, and the view is amazing! Huot's restaurant is conveniently located across the street.

Family setting in Saco

  • 4 of 5

A nice older home in the quiet community of Camp Ellis. The house was well equipped with beach gear, kitchen equipment and towels and linens. The restaurant across the street is excellent and the beach behind the house is a great place for kids to play.
