Overview

Southern Coast of Maine House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms + den, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 10

Half-Acre Ocean-Front Property with Incredible Views!

Sunrise House is situated on a large lawn overlooking Biddeford Pool’s rocky “East Point”. This bright, cheery house is an ideal spot for a family vacation. With bedrooms sleeping 10 plus a den, it is well suited for a three generation family. Watch the sun rise from the deck; look for sea glass on the rocky beach in front; walk 5 min to Big Beach where the sand stretches on for 3 miles; or cross the street to the entrance to the Audubon trail which winds through South Point Sanctuary – a bird watcher’s paradise with spectacular views of Wood Island Light House. The large deck off the main living area has uninterrupted views of the ocean from sunrise to sunset – a favorite spot to enjoy cocktails while the kids run around on the large lawn below. As the sun sets, enjoy s’mores at the private fire pit on the front lawn.

When you enter the house, you can go up a few steps to the bright open kitchen and family room (TV & DVD, wood fireplace), master bedroom (queen) and ensuite, or go down a few steps to 3 bedrooms (2 twins, queen, 2 twins and a double), a bathroom and laundry. Every bedroom has an ocean view! The bathrooms and bedrooms are all newly renovated (2014). The den (TV & DVD ) on the entrance level provides a separate room for games or watching TV. The house has a well-equipped kitchen to accommodate a large family, as well as games, books beach toys and free internet and cable, and an outdoor shower to rinse off after the beach.

Biddeford Pool is a charming area with a grocery store and lobster pound (seasonal). A great place to bike, kayak, surf, bird-watch, fish or just hang out at the beach. The variety of beaches and changing tides offer a myriad of activities, all within walking distance. If you venture a little further, either south towards Kennebunkport or north towards Portland, you’ll find great restaurants, antiquing and shopping. Something for everyone – the perfect spot for a family vacation!

With so many options of things to do, you'll be amazed how you'll just want to sit on the deck and listen to the ocean - it's the best spot to be!

Biddeford Pool is a hidden gem - unspoiled by crowds or development. The only schedule we follow is that of the tides.

Knowing we wanted to take a few day trips to Portland, OOB, Scarborough and Kennebunkport, we couldn't have asked for a better location and the view...was perfect! There is so much to enjoy right in BPL too. We loved the proximity to the sandy and rocky beaches along with sunrise strolls on the Audubon trail and you must take the Wood Island Lighthouse tour! The house was well appointed, we especially enjoyed the private yard and the amazing deck.

Relaxing beachfront getaway

  • 5 of 5

The view is extraordinary! Beautiful views from the deck. The home was very comfortable- we had six adults and three kids and felt there was more than enough room for everyone. The kitchen had everything you could need and the beds were very comfortable. We walked, enjoyed the rocky beach across the street and went looking for sand dollars at the big beach. The owners and caretaker were very attentive and kind. It was difficult to leave!

Breathtaking views and perfect home for getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect in every way! The panoramic view in the living space is amazing, could watch all day. The 4 bedrooms are very comfortable and roomy. All four have an ocean view! Two bathrooms are located conviently on both levels. There is a bonus den with TV that we didn't spend time in since our visit was short but is great space. The wraparound deck is amazing but temperatures kept us from using sadly. The owner and caretaker were great and very accommodating We will definitely return! Beautiful spot in all my travels to Maine didn't realize I was missing! Thanks for a fantastic weekend!!!

Pre-Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Have vactioned in the area as a kid, but more than enjoyed showing my husband the sights as an adult. The house was beautiful and just as described, could noit have been more stocked with everything you could need. The sunrise each morning was absolutely breathtaking and the beach across the street was great for walking with the dog and enjoying the quiet morning. Would highly recommend and return ourselves as soon as possible!

Winter Escape

  • 5 of 5

3 couples rented the house for the weekend. There was plenty of room and we even had a spare bedroom!

The house is clean and very well equipped. The views are spectacular!

BP is easily accessible to Kennebunkport and Portland for shopping and dining but it's nice to be away from the crowds.

This is the second year in a row we have gone for a Pre-Christmas getaway!
