Neighborhood feel with an ocean next door! The home is fantastic! It is spacious but cozy and so quaint from the street. The beach is phenomenal. Great restaurant just down the street. Perfect area for walking, running or cycling. The owner was very accessible and exceptionally helpful!
Perfect Maine Beach House
Our family of seven (Five adults and two kids) enjoyed a week in July and are so excited to return again this summer. The home was clean, well-maintained and has everything we needed. We loved the floor plan with the bedrooms downstairs and kitchen and living area upstairs. The views from upstairs are amazing and perfect for a family meal or just relaxing on the patio.
Goose Rocks Beach is a short walk from the house but close enough to go back and forth in just minutes. Morning walks on the beach are peaceful and afternoons with the kids were enjoyed by all. We loved staying away from the port but still close enough to drive over and enjoy all the shops and restaurants.
The owners are a joy to work with and easily available if needed. Linda takes the time to ensure you are settled in and is readily available if you have questions or need recommendations.
Can't wait to return this year!!
We are so glad you loved staying at our home and enjoyed our beautiful beach. We love that you are returning for another summer!
Amazing place and great experience
The property was amazing. Plenty of room, very comfortable. The views from the kitchen were fabulous. I went with friends for the Christmas prelude and we couldn't stop talking about the views, the house and the closeness to the beach. I can only imagine how amazing it is during the summer. Would definitely rent this property again.
We love the views too! And Christmas Prelude is one of our favorite times in Kennebunkport.
Perfect Beach House!
We are heading back for a week this August - our third consecutive summer!
My family has New England roots and honestly could never agree, or decide, where to go for a summer vacation. We have found our spot!
This perfect house in Goose Rocks Beach appeals to everyone in our family - (my husband and I and our two daughters ages 5 and 8), my parents and my brother and his girlfriend.
First, Goose Rocks Beach is the cutest beach town around. We have explored other areas and nothing compares to the charm and character of GRB. My girls love biking around the town. Great ice cream shop, amazing restaurants, lobster shacks, yoga on the beach in the mornings, general store, etc... and you always have the luxury to explore the great town of Kennebunkport which is just a short drive. My husband loves to golf and has also found his favorite local courses.
The house is one house back from the beach - just down a little path - close enough we let our 5 year go back and fourth from the beach to the house on her own. The beach is private and gorgeous. Another favorite activity for our girls is heading out to explore Timber Island when the tide allows - so cool!
The house has a super chic beach decor and accommodates all of us. The view from the upstairs kitchen (and balcony) is breathtaking. The house is surrounded by a large yard, perfect for bringing lobsters home and eating outside.
Last but not least - the owners are great. I haven't met Linda in person but I have her phone number saved in my phone and feel like she is friend. She is always attentive If I have a question or need something, but mostly she will just call or text to make sure everything is ok and to just chat for a few minutes.
I highly recommend this property (just as long as it's not during our week in August!)
We love our families who return year after year! And agree about Goose Rocks Beach--it is wonderful.
Our family has been holidaying at GRB for over 40 years. This year the entire family were together - adult children and grandchildren - 9 in total. Linda's home exceeded all our expectations. It's a fantastic place for young children with the beautiful beach so close. This end of the beach at GRB is the best for families with children - wide, and great at low tide. The bunk beds were a great hit for the kids and the upstairs family room was a perfect play space for them. The home is beautifully decorated and the kitchen is very well stocked with everything you need for cooking. The outdoor deck off the kitchen is fantastic for breakfast, lunch and supper.
Linda is a gracious host and very accessible if need be.
We have already booked our two weeks for 2014. Linda, thanks for sharing your beautiful home.
We are so happy to share our Goose Rocks Beach home and this wonderful family beach with you. And we are honored that you are returning for another summer!
A special place
My husband and I rented a place on the Cape last summer and had a wonderful week away. This year we chose to head to Kennebunkport and stay on Goose Rocks Beach. What a special place!! Everything in the description about this home is accurate. The location is steps from the ocean and so convenient for a family with a little one who still needs an afternoon nap. The house is immaculate and a perfect layout for 2 families to share. We especially loved taking walks every morning with the baby and even joining the 5K road race on July 3rd. The owners were prompt to respond to any questions during the rental process and a pleasure to deal with. We hesitate to recommend the property to anyone else because we would love to keep our "little secret".
We agree---GRB is the kind of amazing family place that you want to keep secret! We are so glad that you enjoyed being so close to the ocean and thank you for all the complements about our home!
Goose Rocks Beach is a part of Kennebunkport but a world away. One of the longest sandy beaches in Maine with a protected cove it provides a serene escape. Shelling, beach walking, swimming, hikes at low tide to nearby Timber Island, kayaking to outlying islands and the Cape Porpoise lighthouse are all part of Goose Rocks Beach vacation. A ten minute drive away is the bustle of Dock Square in Kennebunkport with shops, restaurants and sightseeing. Goose Rocks Beach is 35 minutes from Portland Maine and its hip cobblestoned streets and waterfront. Other Activities: beachcombing, shelling
