About Chris Poly
My wife Michelle and I have owned this property since 2002. I grew up in Southern NH and Michelle grew up in Central CT. We met in college while going to school in Boston. We live about an hour away in southern NH.
Chris Poly purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Chris Poly chose York Beach
We love York Beach and purchased this property so that our kids would have a place to enjoy the summers. When I was younger my family always rented places in York Beach. We finally had the opportunity to purchase a place right on the water back in 2002 when our family was younger and decided to it was something we could not pass up. Also, my son and I like to surf and it's easy to carry our surfboards across the street to go surfing.
What makes this Cottage unique
We have enjoyed this place because of the location. We like to spend our days on the beach and wanted a place that was convenient to go back and forth during the day without having to pack up everything. Also, we love that the place is a short walk to downtown for the souvenir shops and places to go out for dinner.

Great little place, awesome location
Location, location, location. That's what makes this place great. Plus the owners are very friendly, the place is clean, and well-stocked.
The cons: Be ready for a small space. The bathroom and bedrooms are tiny. The kitchen is tiny. The single parking spot is tiny, and navigating in and out of the driveway can be a challenge.
But with all that said, you really can't beat being right across the street from the beach. And Long Sands is a beautiful, clean, wide beach.
Clean, close to beach, responsive owners
The house was clean and close to the beach. We loved eating at Stones Throw restaurant (right next door) and having a surf lesson from Liquid Dream Surf. We walked to Union Grill for dinner on another night and that was also excellent!
The cottage was perfect for our needs and the location is so close to the beach.
The property is in a perfect location, very well equipped, comfortable and clean. The parking is tight, but it wasn't an issue for us. We would definitely stay again in the future.
If you are looking for a place both on the beach and walking distance to several restaurants, then I highly recommend staying here. There is a delicious restaurant next door called Stones Throw, a general store a block away, and ice cream a few blocks away. We loved the beach - never gets too packed because the tide goes out so far, and it was great for our 2 yr old.
The house has everything you need, including an outdoor shower. The owner was great to work with - he responded to my emails very quickly, and made sure we were happy. No complaints!
On the beach this cute little place had everything we needed. York beaches are just beautiful.
On the beach, close to a local shops, walk to everything- a great short get away.
Perfect Beach Getaway
This cottage is a perfect location to experience Long Sands. The cottage is quaint and well kept. The location is convenient to local restaurants and is walking distance to Short Sands which provides shops, eateries and entertainment . The owners are welcoming and willing to make your stay pleasant. I look forward to visiting York again at this property.
The cottage is located on Long Sands Beach. Long Sands (aka Long Beach) is a mile and half long classic Maine beach, perfect for that long walk, day or evening. You can see both the Nubble lighthouse and Boon Island from Long Sands, as well as New Hampshire's Isles of Shoals. Because it faces the open Atlantic with no appreciable harbor, this is where you'll find good waves, so this is where you'll find the families boogie boarding or surfing! The beach has a gradual slope which makes it a great family destination. Long Sands is always considered one of the Top Beaches in Maine. In addition, the cottage is located a short five minute walk to Short Sands. At Short Sands, you will smell of saltwater taffy being made at the 100+ year old Goldenrod , shops of all kinds, an arcade on the beach, Maine's largest zoo and amusement park (complete with white bengal tiger), restaurants of all kinds, a resident fortune teller, an awesome playground right on the ocean, fireworks over the water during the late July/early August York Days festival, great live bands in the gazebo at Ellis Park all summer long.
