About Anita French

We live just over the border in New Hampshire but love to play at York Beach. We formed Periwinkle Properties LLC when we purchased this set of three houses in the spring of 2012. Periwinkle combines our interest in fixing up older houses and time at the beach. 'Hidden Treasure', 'Breakwater', 'Windswept' and 'High Tide' are all part of Periwinkle and available for rent individually or as a package.

Anita French purchased this house in 2012

Why Anita French chose Southern Coast of Maine

The spacious, wrap around porch is the perfect place to start off your morning with your favorite cup of coffee or wind down after a day at beach. Plenty of comfortable seating and places to walk. Three floors of living make it easy to share with friends and family and still have plenty of room to spread out. Everything you need for your get away is right here.

Great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Great house. Clean and perfectly suited for our large family's vacation. The large wraparound deck was in constant use.

Great Maine Experience

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this house for a few years and its a great place to go in the summer, and experience the Maine coast. It is within walking distance of both beaches and downtown York. Nice and cool breeze in the morning looking out over the ocean.

Perfect Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at High Tide for our two previous vacations and loved the house. We decided to try another Periwinkle property this year.

Breakwater is a wonderful house. As much as we loved High Tide, we love Breakwater even more. This is the perfect vacation house. It is very clean and spacious. Everything we needed, and more, was included. We especially loved those handmade quilts which added to the homey atmosphere. All we really had to bring was our clothing, personal items and food.

We spent a great deal of time on the wrap-around porch. We ate every meal there and it quickly became a favorite gathering spot.

This is a pet friendly house and we are so grateful for this. Thank-you!

Great weekend at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a relatively large group (10) at the house for a weekend and had a great time. Everyone had enough space, the house and its porch were great and we were a stones throw from the beach. I highly recommend the house!

Don't forget the Kittery Outlets and historic Portsmouth NH, just across the bridge.
