About Mark Kilduff and Scott DeCelle

We have vacationed in ogunquit for over 10 years. We have come to love the area and buying this new home just seemed natural. The previous owners never rented this property and built homes for a living. The house is well maintained and all up to date.

Mark Kilduff and Scott DeCelle purchased this house in 2014

Why Mark Kilduff and Scott DeCelle chose Southern Coast of Maine

There is nothing like a day at the beach and nothing better then being right there. There is also so much to do in ogunquit and wells area and all sorts of shopping in between including a short trip down the road to the famous Kittery Trading Post and the Outlet Malls of Kittery Maine.

What makes this house unique

Well kept property. A real gem. Everything is up to date and very homey feeling. Great spot for Family celebrations and the beach is where you spend your days. Out door area on back yard with brand new Hot Tub treated and maintained by our staff coming soon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It felt like home and everything about it was great. CLEAN, it was like staying at a real home and NOT A RENTAL HOUSE. The owners were fabulous and the location was fantastic. We will definitely stay there again.. I would give it 10 stars if I could.

Excellent house for an Ogunquit Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (wife, 20 month old son, and in-laws) stayed at the Beach House fourth of July week. The main reason we selected the house was its proximity to Footbridge Beach. We were pleasantly surprised just how nicely decorated and comfortable the house was. You really can't get the full vibe from the pictures but this is a very charming beach house located in a nice, residential neighborhood, and when you're staying there, you definitely feel like you're staying in a beach community. The house has all modern amenities--nice sized TVs, clean refrigerator with ice maker, remote controlled AC, nice and comfortable kitchen and dining space, two nice sized bedrooms, including a very large upstairs master bedroom. Showers and everything worked fine. There is a third bedroom too but this would work better for a group of children as it contains two sets of bunk beds though it is doable to sleep 8. The living room was spacious and comfortable with nice sofas and a recliner chair.The house has everything you need for the beach. There are beach towels, a shed containing beach chairs (there was more than enough for everyone, probably around 8-10 chairs), a beach cart to wheel everything down there, and probably other stuff I'm forgetting. In addition to the outside table there's the sunroom in the house which you can see from the pics, plus an outdoor shower that was great when returning from a day at the beach!

We really loved the location of the house. It was close enough that we could easily walk to the beach and back. Didn't have to worry about having everyone leave at the same time-it's about a 7-10 min walk from the house to the beach. We really appreciated being so close for walks/runs and especially after seeing the cars lined up to park at Footbridge and Ogunquit's Main Beach. After seeing both beaches I actually preferred-- Footbridge--it seemed "slightly" less crowded than the Ogunquit beach. The house is just about a mile from town. Walking is possible but we preferred driving into and back in the morning and for specific trips like to Perkins Cove, and then walking or trolleying to and from town at night. Lots of good restaurants in easy walking distance to the house. Nice neighbors too. Overall it was a great vacation. Ogunquit has a lot to offer. We had a wonderful experience at TBH and would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jonathan. We appreciate your sentiment. We just absolutely love the area. So much so , Scott and I will be the new owners of an Additional property in the neighborhood. We welcome you to come and stay any time you like. The house and new investment will always be available all year round. New Years is becoming a Nice time in Ogunquit as well as Octoberfest (aka Ogunquitfest). Obviously Summer is the Hot Commodity but with the local restaurants open year round - we are talking with Beachfire and others about putting Fall and winter packages together like "Girls Night(s) out as well as a "Wine Tasting Weekends" Stay tuned for future news events :)

Perfect vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Maine. The house was perfect for 9 adults, plenty of room. The rooms were clean and there was plenty of linens. The street is quiet and all the bars/restaurants are close by. The landlords were more than accommodating. We would recommend staying here

Great place, horrible owners

  • 1 of 5

It is a very beautiful place, close to the beach and downtown. Really neat, I mean, nothing to say about the house and we really enjoyed the stay. Unfortunately, my friends and I were treated as if we were liars, savages and the owners took advantage of us. We were a considerable group of 15 academic Canadian students but, we made sure that there were no problem with us to stay with the owners and they agreed, so we made the reservation. Mostly, we played board games, enjoy a tasteful meal and enjoying the stay. We were quiet and respectful of the neighbour. I bet they would had been surprised to know how much we were ! Our only mistake : we used the hot tube, which the keys weren't hidden, and then, the nightmare ! We were threatened by some "don't destroy my house" even so if we were fully cooperative the first time they said to us that the hot tube wasn't to be used (weird... he has a camera over the hot tube... ). Then, the owners accused the group of putting every little sand grand of Ogunquit beach in the hot tube and that we didn't followed any of the leaving instructions... saying that we leaved a mess and they will keep the deposit. Unfortunately, I was one of those that take care of cleaning the cottage and I could tell, we did a remarkable job... We tried to communicated with them but no answer since they insulted us and declared that they will keep the safety deposit ... So, the place is a great one, well positioned, but become aware that the owners could take advantage of you and keep the safety deposit for no reason. Take it mind when comparing the price with other cottages !

Owner's Response: NICE TRY MARCEL. That's all distorted and i'm not surprised. Marcel booked the reservation and it was booked as 10 guests , not 15. I never would have accepted 15 because the neighbors would be pissed. AND if I could - I would have charged more but clearly they breached their contract right there ! I told Marcel it sleeps 8 comfortably and 2 additional if they can sleep on a pull out couch. To that he replied to the affirmative The hot tub, not tube was locked and the keys WERE hidden. They went looking and found them. With 15 guests running through the house you can imagine the fright when I saw them DRINKING alcohol in the hot tub which was off limits. I tried calling Marcel but no one answered. I had to call my neighbor and ask her to put Marcel on the phone. Once that was broken up and they got out of the Hot Tub then the noise became the issue. My neighbors to the left and the right complained of the noise at 10:30 pm and even walked over and told those on the poach to quite down. so again - all distorted. So with them gone I went to inspect the Hot tub and that when we discovered all sorts of paper floating in the water and sand all over the bottom and all through out the house. Cleaners they are NOT. The paper turned out to be a famine pad !!! So not only did I have to drain it, clean it and refill it at their expense - I had to buy a new Filter which are not cheap.

Extremely Clean and Well Maintained!! Better than the photos depicted!

  • 5 of 5

This house was beautifully maintained and very clean. Had all the amenities that one would need to enjoy a vacation. The beach is just a 2 minute walk down the street. The beach was never overcrowded and we could find a spot right off of the foot bridge. Only a mile from the center, so some nights we walked and other we drove. Lots of available off-street parking for free if you head in after 5 or 6 PM. Center of Town had lots of great shops, restaurants and ice cream shops most importantly. Our favorite after trying them all was Abbott Creamery on Main Street. If we ever had an issue Mark was very quick to respond. Ogunquit has to be one of the nicest and cleanest Towns in Maine. We would defiantly go back there for a future vacation.

Disappointed by the owner

  • 1 of 5

It was not my first time in Ogunquit, but my first experience with Mr Kilduff's cottage. The beach house is beautiful and very close to the beach. When we arrived (we were a 15 persons group, which the owner previously agreed) everything seemed perfect and we were looking forward to enjoy this vacation in Maine. The stay of 3 days was filled with a one-day trip to Boston and lots of board games playing : we were very calm and respectful guests. However, the trip started with a misunderstanding with the owner that quickly escalated with him threatening us to "not destroy his house". In fact, some group members assumed the hot tub was part of the location and went for a dip. The hot tub was locked but the keys laid in evidence in the staircases leading to the bedrooms and consequently we didn't assume it was suppose to be a hidden storage place : our fault. From the moment the owner told us we were not allowed in the hot tub (which he learned from the camera he installed outside to sneak in ....weird (?)), it was closed and nobody ever touched it again. Then, to our perception, the rest of the trip seemed to go peacefully. When we packed, we followed every instructions written in the instruction book and left the house as when we arrived. However, the owner chose to take advantage of the situation and treated us like savages. He accused us of untruthful facts and kept the deposit for unjustified reason. We initiated a discussion with him and tried to communicate, but, to this day, he never responded and kept the deposit. He was disrespectful and took advantage of students coming from Canada left without resort. Consequently, I would recommend the house, but not so much dealing with the owner. If you're interested in renting this cottage I suggest you to budget the deposit as if it's part of the location price, because you probably won't see it again.

What a super house!

  • 5 of 5

The property is perfect in every sense of the word!

The beach is so close from the house allowing us to go swimming and then to come back at the house in about 5 min, a really cool feature when it starts to rain... Hahaha!!!

The house itself is so beautiful, right in the Eastern Beach Style. Everything that you'll need is in this house, we didn't miss anything.

The neighbour are quiet close from the house, but when you're passing all your time at the beach, there's enough space for everyone. Ogunquit is a very beautiful and small place that everybody would like to visit, and this house offered us this opportunity.
