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 a collection of three houses in the spring of 2012 and added one more in January 2015 right next door. Periwinkle combines our interest in fixing up older houses with time at the beach. 'Hidden Treasure', 'Breakwater', 'High Tide' and 'Windswept' are all part of Periwinkle and available for rent individually or as a package. See the listing numbers above.

Anita French purchased this house in 2012

Why Anita French chose Southern Coast of Maine

This house was renovated top to bottom in the winter of 2013. It is comfortable any time of year and is located conveniently near the Nubble Light House and Short Sands beach. New beds, kitchen, baths, an additional bedroom and porch are waiting for you to enjoy.

Beautiful location, Great Vacation House!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. We came for New Years, and couldn't stop talking about how beautiful Anita's place must be in the summer time. The tiny walk to the ocean is great, as is the short walk to the Lighthouse. The beds were comfortable and the space very clean. The kitchen is amazingly stocked. We can't wait to go back!

Another wonderful stay.

  • 5 of 5

My far flung family met here for Christmas for the second year in a row. We came back this year because we felt so at home here. The house is spotless, comfortable and well maintained. The kitchen has just about everything you could ever need. We were warm and cozy and hope to be back next year.

Lovely lovely spot for a weekend or several weeks

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a home on the southern coast of Maine this is your place. You are close to Short and Long Sand Beach. A reasonable walk will bring you to Nubble Light. Anita has everything you will need. She is so well organized with sheets, kitchen pot and pans, and gear for the beach. The house is lovely and clean with a fabulous wrap around porch. Anita quick to answer any questions and even had a welcome gift waiting for us on the dinning table. Look no further this is the perfect house for a bit of Maine splendor.

Best Vacation Properties we have ever rented

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at Cottages that are owned by Anita and Don French for the past few years and have been very pleased. They are clean, the beds are comfortable and they are so well- supplied that one needs to pack only clothing, food, and toiletries. They are located within walking distance of Short Sands beach and town center.

We had a wonderful stay at High Tide! It was nice and clean when we arrived. We appreciated the sheets and towels. It was great to have a washer and dryer, too. The cottage had everything we could have asked for! Anita was very friendly and wonderful to work with. We were a family of 6 and found we had more than enough room to spread out. The location was perfect!
