Perfect vacation spot for a large family

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at the beach and really enjoyed ourselves. The house was very clean and had all the amenities to accommodate our group of 12 (4 children between 2-8 years old and 8 adults). The large backyard was great for the children to play games and for nights we did not want to eat outside, the dining table in the solarium had a great view of the backyard so we could supervise while eating. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could look for (even for baking) and the BBQ was great to feed our group. The walk to the beach is very straight forward and, even for little legs, did no take us more than 15 minutes and we saw tons of birds in the natural reserve that we had to cross. The beach is perfect, it's a nice sandy beach and, since there is no public parking close by, it's only people loving close by that access the beach, so even at high tide, there's still plenty of space to not feel crowded and for children to play around without disturbing anyone. Some mornings, we used a car to bring our beach gear, it meant someone had to drive 2–3 minutes there and back and then walk to join us, but frankly very easy. We had initially looked for a house by the beach, but were very happy to not be so close as it meant we did not have to worry that the kids would venture on the beach on their own when they played outside and yet it was close enough to go back and forth a few times a day. The last stop of the Ogunquit trolley is about a 15 minutes walk from the house which is a fun thing to do to go into town. We chose to drive into town a few nights, but depending when you arrive, public parking is $10-$20 per car (we where there mid July, so high tourist season). Finally, the owners were very quick to answer all our questions ahead of the trip and very responsive when we arrived (we had noticed two burned light bulb and that the propane tank of the BBQ was low, nothing serious nor urgent, but within 24 hours, we had new light bulbs and a new propane tank). We would definitely return and highly recommend the house for large groups.

Owner's Response: Dear Isabelle, Thanks so much for the great review ( which we just received today ... not sure why Homeaway delayed it). Thanks also for letting us know right away about the small things that were needed. We do our best to check things out between guests, but it is always appreciated when people let us know if we have missed something. We are so glad that you and your family enjoyed your time in Maine while you celebrated a special birthday. We look forward to seeing you again soon. All the best, John and Johanne

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

This house is as described: nicely decorated, with everything in working order, spacious, clean and bright throughout, and located in a quiet neighborhood. Beach is within walking distance although we decided to drive. There is also a public parking lot that charges a flat fee. This property is also ideal for families with children.

The owners, John & Johanne, and property manager, Heidi, were very responsive to questions and/or issues; the only problem we encountered was the cable and internet went out several hours after we checked in and after texting Heidi, she immediately contacted the cable company and found out they were aware of outage and were working on it. Within an hour, everything was back to normal.

Thank you, John & Johanne, for sharing your lovely home with us for our stay in Maine. I personally wish we could have stayed longer. We just love this area of Maine and try to go there every several years. So now we know where we can stay the next time we visit Maine.

Also, please relay our appreciation to Heidi for her quick and efficient response to our texts, etc.

Furnish Road was a hit with us!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of seven adults and we traveled to Kennebunkport for the Prelude. We decided to rent in Wells. The house was perfect for us! With 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, we all had plenty of space. It was immaculate when we went in, quiet neighborhood. The house was decorated nicely, everything in working condition. We enjoyed the house very much!
