Why Jack Spencer chose Cape Porpoise
My wife and I had been trying to figure out how to carve off a piece of property from my parents land, which my sister did successfully the year before, for several years, with very little success. My wife and I went to Newport, RI, on our first overnight trip without our son, the day after Thanksgiving in 2013 when we got a phone call from my father who said that this house came on the market! We rushed home, took a tour and made an offer that same weekend! The interesting thing about the property is that it's not only adjacent to the property on which I grew up, it's also adjacent to my sister and brother in law's home. My mother designed the addition that we put on the house, my father GC'd it, my brother-in-law did all of the carpentry, I sourced many of the materials and my wife is decorating it! I's rare to be able to keep it in the family that way, but it makes our home that much more special. It would have been much less expensive to tear the whole house down and start over, but having grown up in the neighbourhood, and known the former owner very well (she was a teacher of mine in elementary school), we felt a sense of responsibility to the community to not only do something that fit in on the street, but also do our part to improve it as much as possible.
What makes this House unique
Please visit the home's instagram page and see for yourself (@23wardroad)! Give me a call if you want to talk about the home! Real estate is a passion of mine, which I eat, sleep, and breathe so talking about it, particularly when I know all the intimate details of the home is exciting to me!

Wonderful stay in Cape Porpoise!
We loved our time in Cape Porpoise. Best rental we have ever stayed in — house was well designed, immaculately clean and comfortable. Lots of toys for our 4.5 and almost 2 year old to play with, and the owners provided kid supplies like a booster seat and stroller. Cape Porpoise is so charming and we loved Kennebunkport as well. Jack and Kelly were friendly and easy to communicate with. We hope to be back!!
We had a great time at this rental property. Very family friendly with games, stroller, high chair all at the house. The open living area was great for socializing in the evening while the kids played. Gorgeous neighborhood to walk and close to beach. Walked down to the lobster shack and got fresh steamed lobster. We hope to come back in the years to come!!
This is a beautiful home in a beautiful place!
This was an awesome house. Beautiful spacious very clean wonderful backyard.
This was a great experience. The house was the best we’ve ever rented. Owners were so friendly and thought of everything
We’re glad you enjoyed our home as much as we do! Hope you decide to stay with us again sometime!
Great location - beautiful house !!
Beautiful, clean and spacious house, well equiped (nothing was missing). Perfect for young families (baby gear, stroller, gates, little swimming pools, big yard and toys). Perfectly located in the beautiful Cape Porpoise, just a few miles from Goose Rocks Beach. Only thing missing was AC, so the nights were a bit uncomfortable for a few days, but we’ve been told it was unusually hot during our stay. Owner responded very promptly to our only inquiry. Great overall !
Wonderful House, Wonderful Owner
We had a really great experience renting this house in beautiful Kennebunkport. The owner was very mindful about our stay. Very detailed oriented (there were fresh flowers in the kitchen table and he let us borrow a double stroller and pack and play for our daughters). Clean and beautiful house walking distance from pier, restaurants, cafe, and supermarket. Overall, we had a fantastic week!
