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.

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!

Beach Vacation with Family

  • 5 of 5

Anita and Don we thoroughly enjoyed our vacation in Maine at this house by the ocean - it had everything we needed - so enjoyed the front porch. It was a wonderful week with our children and grandchildren. It is in a great location just around the corner from Short Sands. Great place to take an early morning walk or run - close enough to walk to Dunes for ice cream. The fudge at "Sweet Josie's" is the best!!! The boys got to fish with Grampy and Uncle Jeremy. The 7 grandchildren were great and got along very well. We enjoyed our lobster fest on Sunday - delicious! Loved every minute of it and hope to return next year. Laundry room downstairs was very convenient so we had little dirty laundry to bring home. We are blessed with a wonderful family and so enjoyed our time together. Joyce & Bob Baker

Fabulous place!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful vacation property! This is our second year staying at this house. We love it! The owners provide linens, kitchen necessities as well as well needed daily supplies (toilet paper, paper towels, hand soap etc). There are boogie boards, beach chairs and a beach cart as well. Laundry room is also located on the property. The house is clean and orderly.

Its location is perfect and close to shops, light house and beach.

Amazing location, good value for large groups, some minor issues with cleanliness.

  • 3 of 5

Loved the large porch, ocean views and close proximity to both Long and Short Sands/downtown shops and restaurants (all walking distance). The condition of the provided linens was a big issue for our group. The sheets were old and mismatched. The quilts were dingy and in some cases, stained and torn. Sheets were clean but it seemed like the quilts/comforters hadn't been freshly laundered.

Owner's Response: All feedback from guests is taken into consideration to help maintain a positive experience in our cottages at the beach. It is our goal for everyone to have a carefree stay in relaxed atmosphere that is family friendly. Sheets and towels provided are “nothing fancy, but clean and functional” as shared with guests prior to their arrival. They are examined every week for use and wear and are regularly replaced as needed. Most sheet sets are not matched sets but are carefully coordinated to make up the bedding packet. Spreads and blankets are not washed every week but are examined for cleanliness and rotated throughout the season for laundering. I have noticed that a few of the spreads have developed small tears that need attention and replacements will be brought up to allow for this. In response to this concern, five new spreads have been ordered that will allow for even more frequent rotation and replacement as needed.

Beautiful and inviting

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time staying at this property. The house is beautiful and it had more than enough to accommodate all 9 of us. Being able to see the ocean from the house was an added bonus. We would definitely stay here again!

Home away from home.

  • 4 of 5

We feel in love with this place the first time we stayed.

We are making this a yearly tradition, this is our second time we've stayed. Two families with plenty of room for all.

The house is very accomadating.

Partial views of the water and an amazing porch, it really is a great getaway.

Very helpful owners to work with any questions or concerns .
