This home is exactly as advertised, and then some. Those pictures, where you see the beach from the door? That's *exactly* how it is. Once you walk out the door, you are seconds away from your feet hitting the sand, and the sand really is powdery and soft. At low tide, the water pulls back a couple of hundred feet, so there's a ton of room to setup shop and play. For all that, the beach area in front of the cottage is practically empty (and we were there mid-August), so you feel like you have the place to yourself. You can look south toward town, and maybe a hundred yards away the beach is packed, but no one makes the trip past the main hotels. There's very little seaweed in the water, so it's a pleasurable swim even for the finicky.
You're outside of the main downtown (pier) area, so it's very quiet. But it's only a 10-15 minute stroll to get to the pier and the shopping, when you want to go out to eat, to Palace Playland, etc. It's only a 5 minute walk in either direction on the main road to get to a convenience store for necessities, snacks, or a quick sub or pizza if you need it. If you want to hop in the car, there are plenty of dining options in the area (esp. if you're a fan of traditional Maine lobster shacks), and it's only a half hour drive to Portland.
The cottage is cozy, clean, updated and well furnished. The beds are comfortable, and you have several room options. The kitchen was well stocked, even with some of those less common utensils and cookware. You can make a beeline from the door through the kitchen to the bathroom to jump in the shower after coming back from the beach, to wash off some of the more persistent sand. Beach chairs, boogie boards, even some shovels and buckets are in the storage area under the deck; and we grilled out on the brand new grill more than a couple of times.
The owners are amazing! They spend the summer in the house next door, so we were greeted upon arrival. They had a little gift basket ready, and Lena dropped by every other day with another little gift for our 2-1/2 year old daughter. We didn't have a high chair for our 10 month old son, and the owners pulled one up from their basement as soon as we mentioned it. They were super friendly and easy to talk to. When we were leaving, they asked some questions about anything we found missing or lacking in quality, so it was obvious that they are very interested in finding out about anything they may have overlooked so they can rectify it ASAP.
What a perfect home for a beach vacation!
You really don't need to bring anything besides your linens and towels. The patio space in front of the cottage is a bonus and we spent a lot of time there barbecuing and enjoying our meals. Especially at night, it was so peaceful and quiet, we sat out and talked for hours with the family. We rented paddle boards from a local surf shop two blocks away. It was close enough to the downtown area to walk but far enough away so that when we returned, you heard no noise at all. It was really the most relaxing vacation we've had in the Old Orchard Beach area in a long time!
It is on a private dead end street so it was great for the kids. They ran up from the beach constantly with no worries of cars. It was very quiet at night and extremely comfortable for sleeping as the beds had super pillow top mattresses. Equally important to us, the owner was very obliging and a real pleasure to deal with. It was an incredibly beautiful spot that I didn't even know existed in OOB. Thank you for sharing your beach cottage with us. Can't wait to come back next year!
We spent our vacation at this perfect beach cottage in July 2015. The cottage was very clean and had everything we could have asked for. Was even nicer in person. It is was the ideal beach getaway. We have rented in OOB the last 6 years. We were so impressed with this cottage and its location. All positives! No crowds. Dead end street. This is a very quiet part of OOB with an awesome beach, soft, white sand and clean blue ocean. No red seaweed. Our vacation week was so relaxing. Comfortable outside furniture and BBQ. Bonus was parking for 4 cars. We will definitely come back. Look no further. You will not be disappointed.
This was a wonderful place to spend a week on the beach. The location is perfect - on the best part of the Old Orchard Beach coastline - close enough to get to the touristy amusements when you want but otherwise far enough away that there are no crowds, noise at night, etc. This was a very peaceful, fun and enjoyable stay. The cottage is well equipped and spacious enough for our 3 adults and 2 children. The owners made great efforts to provide anything needed including some beach toys. Above-and-beyond hospitality. We'll be back any time we're in Old Orchard Beach.
This cottage was the perfect vacation spot! We stayed here as a family of 5 for a week in July 2014! The place is very cozy and we absolutely adored the decorations that made the cottage feel like a home away from home. The cottage was extremely clean and inviting. It came with everything we could have needed for our week's stay. It was really comfy and relaxing. It had two flat screen televisions! The kitchen was well equipped and we even found a salad spinner for our fresh lettuce that we bought at the farmer's market in Portland.
In the front patio area of the cottage there was a barbecue grill and lawn furniture. We used this area a lot because we had the most incredible weather and it was very peaceful. We had most of our meals there. The cottage is located seconds to the beach and on a dead end road, which made it perfect for my young family, with two children under give years old. It was really safe and tranquil. There was also a fence around the entire property, providing privacy.
We brought our bikes and drive to the center to the center of town, which took about five minutes. It was nice to get back to the cottage as it was really noisy downtown. This spot was paradise! We would highly recommend this house to anyone wanting a peaceful and cozy house to kick back in.
It was a great time for both kids as adults! Best beach area ever to vacation!! We highly recommend it!!
