About sean matthews

My wife and I are avid beach goers that love the Southern Maine coast.

sean matthews purchased this house in 2013

Why sean matthews chose Kennebunk

I've been vacationing in the Kennebunks since I was a child. My wife and I have spent many summer weekends at a family house in the area, and longed for the opportunity to buy a place of our own.

What makes this house unique

We bought this house because of it's great location and space. We think it's a great place to entertain family/friends, while being close to the beach and local attractions.

Super Place!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 adults and 3 small children loved staying here. It is close to the beach and the charming downtown of Kennebunkport. The house was clean and spacious enough for all of us. We all agreed that it was a great place for us to stay. The Matthews left a binder with well organized instructions as well as some sightseeing and restaurant tips. They also had little extras like beach towels and chairs which helped so much. If we are ever back in the area we will definitely stay here. Thank you Sean and Annie.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

It was centrally located to everything, yet far enough away that we were able to enjoy peace and quiet. We had plenty of room for all of the adult children and having more than one bathroom was PERFECT :)

HIGHLY recommend if you have a large family

So nice, we stayed twice :)

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our second weekly stay at Penwood. We loved our visit there last summer so much that we decided to return again this summer. With 4 adults and 4 children, there was plenty of space and we never felt cramped. Our children loved playing in the yard and on the front porch. The home is very well kept and set in a quiet residential neighborhood which is very close to the Kennebunk beaches and close to restaurants and shopping in downtown Kennebunkport. We love the way the house is decorated and how everything is updated and in perfect working order. On both visits, everything was sparkling clean when we arrived which is so important to me when renting someone's house-kudos to the cleaning crew! We look forward to staying at Penwood again soon. It truly feels like a "home away from home". Thank you to Sean (the owner) who is a pleasure to deal with.
