Peter and Meryl prepare for us a beautiful place every years for us, they offer an excellent service!
It's so clean, cute and all we need is on the place. It's very near of the beach, on your bed, you can hear the waves....:)
It's just a walk of 10 min of town center where you can walk, shop, golf, rent a scooter, a bike (2 persons), etc ...., and perfect to pass a quiet time too!
We reserved every years for all theses reasons!
Literally 40 steps the beach, we enjoyed the convenience of being able to go to the beach daily without it being a big process. At the beach we found some nice, large shells, sand dollars and there are lots of hermit & rock crabs to be found.
We already have plans to stay here again next summer. The property was just as described. We stayed in suite 3 and enjoyed the ocean view and sound of the waves. It was clean, well-maintained and well-stocked with everything advertised.
Peter and Meryl were great hosts. We saw them a couple times during our week there and they were always friendly and offered area knowledge and suggestions for things to do and the best times to do them. Their communication in preparation for our stay was clear and helpful.
The location made it easy to make trips north to parks, forts and museums in Portland and Cape Elizabeth as well as south to Kennebunkport for sightseeing. There is a nice Hannaford store about 4-5 minutes away and several local seafood shops nearby. The pier was about a 10 minute walk with my 4yo and Pirate's Cove is a little closer.
It was our first trip to OOB and I think we really lucked out in finding as perfect a place to stay as I could have hoped for - we plan to make this an annual vacation.
Peter and Meryl were gracious hosts. The suite was very clean, and my daughter loved that it was just steps away from the beach, and we could hear the waves. Even though it was a little chilly, we still went to the beach, and, at night, we enjoyed being able to sit on the enclosed porch. I would definitely recommend this house, and will stay here the next time we are in Old Orchard Beach .
We were the very first to stay at the property this season...it is GREAT...very clean and the new owners were around sprucing things up in all the apartments...new paint, floors, etc. Homey decor. Great location...so close to the beach and you can walk downtown. We were here working, and enjoyed our stay, and the owners.
This house is really fun...my whole family stayed here in different apartments, that are all a little different. We stayed in the little cottage/studio...it was very clean and so cute. You can't beat the location...the beach is right there, and you can easily walk to the pier. We will stay again.
We've stayed here for a week the last 3 summers. This year, we'll be staying 2 weeks. These suites are bright, clean, and well-equipped. You can't beat the location!! The beach is right there! Close enough to the pier for an easy walk yet far enough away so that the beach is much quieter and roomier. I highly recommend staying here.
Please contact us regarding availability and rates. More than one suite is available.
Early June, and September and October in Maine are lovely. Please inquire about off season rates.
The beach is at your doorstep...
The town of Old Orchard hosts the beach, arcades and amusement rides, nightly entertainment, auto races, miniature golf and more. During the summer, there are many special events,,,festivals, fairs, free concerts, street dances, as well as fireworks most Thursday nights. Old Orchard is home to the famous 'Pier,' gift and souvenir shops, candy stores, ice cream, restaurants, and nightclubs. If you want to venture a few miles north, you will find Portland, Maine's largest city, with a full array of stores, shops, and dozens of galleries and restaurants. Maine Mall is located close by in South Portland, and the scenic towns of Kennebunk and Ogunquit are about half an hour away. Also, Kittery and Freeport Outlets are within easy driving distance.
