"Home" away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year renting this home and we love our "home away from home". The owner actually treats you like family. The house is very clean and very comfortable. The owner was on site to take care of any needs we had and I can honestly say we had none. The house is well furnished and well-maintained. We could see the ocean from the balcony and we just had to walk across the driveway to be on the beach. No roads to cross, great for my grandchildren. The beach in front of our rental is absolutely beautiful and not overly crowded. The house is far enough away from the pier so that we avoid all the noise, but close enough to walk to when we wanted to visit the shops. We are already booked for 2017 and we can't wait to make many more family memories in our "home away from home". I highly recommend this home for anyone looking to experience Maine and all it has to offer. We have stayed in many rentals from York to Wells and this home is by far the best we've ever seen.

ALL TIME FAVORITE PERFECT VACATION SPOT!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented a number of oceanside cottages in Maine but this spot has to be our all-time favorite! This cottage is fabulous- I wouldn't change a thing! This was the absolute best place by far we have stayed at in Old Orchard Beach.

The description of the property was right on target and the cottage is even more fantastic in person than the photos. We loved hearing the ocean while sleeping and on the balcony! The view from the large front balcony was breathtaking. The sunsets were a blaze of color!

All the beds had these luxurious pillow top mattresses- incredibly comfy for sleeping!

The house was immaculately clean and recently renovated. It was well stocked and there wasn't anything we could think of that wasn't supplied!

It really felt like home with all the amenities. A washer and dryer are located inside the cottage which was a huge plus when travelling with kids

and a big family. The owner met us upon arrival and did everything she possibly could to make our stay as wonderful as possible.

There was even a book in the cottage she prepared for guests with restaurant and travel recommendations, which was our bible and made our stay

that much more enjoyable!

The beachfront area for the cottage was one of the nicest beachfronts we've ever vacationed at!

White powdery sand , just as described. It was a very quiet area of the beach which made our stay so relaxing .

We would highly recommend this cottage for anyone who is looking for the perfect vacation spot!

Truly a 5 star stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Truly a 5 star stay!!

This was our second time spending our family beach vacation at this home and it was again amazing!

The home was clean and welcoming when we arrived.

It is so nice to find a home that we could all enjoy meals together at the same table (there were 9 of us) and a living area that we could all relax in.

The kitchen was equipped with everything needed.

The balcony with ocean view is a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning.

The beach was great! Soft sand and level beach with plenty of area to sit, even on a busy day. The beach is great for a run in the morning!!

The house is a great distance from the pier, we walked there every night...nice to walk back on the beach, too.

The owner was so very kind and gracious during our stay:))

OUR IDEAL BEACH COTTAGE RENTAL

  • 5 of 5

"As good as it gets"

We left a deposit to come back 2016. The pictures on line do not do this cottage justice. The cottage has spectacular views of the beach which we enjoyed from the inside of the cottage and on spectacular upper deck. Large kitchen with every you need, we entertained often. Spacious and comfortable living room with plenty of AC and ceiling fans.WIFI throughout the house. Renovated with flair and very clean. Best sleep we had on fantastic pillow top beds. Awesome. Proximity to downtown was a 10 minute walk in exchange for being out of the hustle and bustle. Owners are on site so hospitable and extremely nice people. Best part was the beach, fine white sand, flat and seconds away. I highly recommend this beach cottage. I picked this cottage because it 's on a dead end street, safe for my kids. Added bonus was parking for 4 cars! I can go on and on. Thanks, we will be back.

Great property with outstanding view and beach

  • 5 of 5

Our first vacation of summer 2015-

Just couple of words to describe it

Excellentic

Fantabulous

Loved everything from the house, the view of altantic & beautiful soft and white sand on the beach! House was very clean, pictures on VRBO does not make any justice to the actual place. Our young kids had tremendous fun on the beach, they could just walk to beach on their own never to be worried about cars crossing.

Warmth and coziness of the house and owner made this homely experience.

Thank you very much for this experience – never to be forgotten

We will be BACK!!

I would strongly recommend to stay in this house

Magic vacation spot, loved it

  • 5 of 5

We could not have picked a more amazing place to spend our family vacation!

Everything was absolutely perfect-the weather was fantastic, the ocean was refreshing, like I have never seen it here in Maine before . I think global warming is making the ocean warmer..The location and the house deserve a 5 star rating.

I enjoyed walking the beach and loved the peacefulness of this location . This spot was still close enough to walk to all the restaurants and rides for the grandkids. My whole family adored this beach cottage and can't say enough great things about the beautiful beach and the location. It was a highlight to watch the sunsets from the front balcony and the kids watched the Thursday night fireworks from the beach I highly recommend this beach home. It has it all.
