Clean, convenient, quiet

  • 5 of 5

Ocean Lure is surprisingly quiet and very well equipped with careful attention to cleanliness and thorough amenities. Although we didn't have a chance to use many of the amenities during our short stay, we particularly appreciated having access to grilling, bike riding, beach chairs, the lobster pot, new laundry machines, a smart TV and a backyard. Jeff met us to check in and provided a thorough walk-through, showing us where everything was located--down to the forks! We would stay again.

Owner's Response: Tiffany, Thank you for your stellar review. We are glad you got to use the lobster pot, the grill on the patio, ride our bikes with helmets and take advantage of our beach chairs, beach umbrella and wonderful sandy beaches. The next time you stay at Ocean Lure hopefully you will be able to see more sites. Thank you for leaving the house in terrific condition. We look forward to you next visit!

Just Perfect!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at The Ocean Lure. Beautiful walk to the beach, great restaurants with walking distance. The house is well appointed and everything needed for a comfortable stay is there, and very clean!!! The backyard is a great place to read or barbecue.

I will return.

Peaceful and Revitalizing!

  • 5 of 5

This home was not only all it was advertised to be, but more! The property is clean, flawless, and has the most beautiful decor that provides a relaxing atmosphere. The beds are super comfortable and even though I was only there for a short weekend, the house was so inviting I felt myself longing to stay longer. My stay was two-fold - as a weekend getaway but also as a place to stay while attending a conference in Portland. The house was only 35 minutes from downtown Portland and only a short drive to all the Kittery outlets. We enjoyed some leisurely shopping, and even though it rained most of the time we were in Maine, we had a wonderful time. The owners of this home provided anything you could ever want, including all the necessities to make a warm cup of tea on a rainy day! We were in want of nothing at the Inviting and Positively Perfect Ocean Lure! I'm already excited to return for a whole week in July and visit the local beaches! I highly recommend this rental property as the perfect vacation or weekend to recharge!

Owner's Response: Becca, thank you for your very thoughtful and eloquent insight and review of our home. We were thrilled to have you stay at Ocean Lure for your conference in Portland. We wish your visit was longer and a bit dryer. When you return for your week's vacation in July, you will find the beaches warm and inviting. There are many sites and activities in the area. Walking the Marginal Way is peaceful and relaxing. Glad you had time to shop in Portland, Kittery and Freeport. We will have the tea and coffee ready for you and your family's vacation in July. Thank you for taking such wonderful care of our home. See you soon Becca!

AAHHH, Relax!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Ocean Lure during a nursing conference, and it was pure, unadulterated relaxation after a day of thinking and being with too many people. The house is beautifully decorated to be a relaxing, restful beach home away from home. It was immaculate, convenient, and easy to find things. It was a cold and rainy weekend, but I went into the back yard to enjoy the quiet. I have already recommended this as a wonderful vacation place. I only wish I had been on vacation and could enjoy the area more.

Perfect rental house

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week at Ocean Lure and absolutely loved it. When we arrived at the house Jeff was there to welcome us, gave us a tour of the property, and several recommendations of things to see and do in the area. We could not believe all of the extras that were provided in the house, we truly didn't need to bring anything other than our clothes. We made use of the beach equipment, bikes, grill, kitchen supplies and the other amenities provided. We felt so at home, welcomed, and like we were important to Jeff. We couldn't have asked for a better stay and hope to stay at Ocean Lure again. Thanks for everything Jeff!!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having you and your family stay at Ocean Lure. We are thrilled you explored the area and enjoyed some of our favorite restaurants. What a treat to spend part of Easter on the beach with 85 degree weather! It was wonderful that you enjoyed Maine and our home. You certainly took outstanding care of our home. Glad you had the opportunity to use our bikes to explore Wells and Ogunquit. We look forward to having you return to Ocean Lure for your next vacation! Thanks for all you did for us.

Car: recommended

Located just east of Route 1, within walking distance to the beach, restaurants and trolleys. Enjoy the white sand beaches of the Southern Maine coast. Walk the Marginal Way or visit the Rachel Carson Refuge to take in some local bird watching. Relax at the beach, at a local restaurant or in the peaceful private backyard. If shopping is more your style, the outlets in Kittery and Freeport are just a short drive away. Local bars and theaters provide night time entertainment.
