A wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The property was extremely clean, well decorated and inviting. A great deal of thought went into the decorating, and it was a wonderful place to stay.

With just a short walk to everything, you didn't have to drive anywhere and was truly a "home away from home."

Bachelorette Party!

  • 5 of 5

I can not thank Tim and Carol enough for their amazing rental! To start, the location was outstanding, a close walk to the beach and an easy walk home from a night out in downtown York! Each morning we enjoyed breakfast on the porch and a nice walk to Nubble lighthouse, each night the hot tub was perfect for relaxation after dinner. The theme's for every room were beautiful, and we had not one complaint. We were welcomed to the home with a bottle of bubbly on the counter (we will save that for the wedding week) and a very sweet card. We also enjoyed reading on the history of the house and the history of York (plenty of books to look at). Tim and Carol also left pamphlets for different recommendations close by (we took their advice for a dinner location and loved the live music and food at Inn on the Blues). As for Tim and Carol themselves, they made the process of beach house renting so easy, they were quick to respond and helped in every singly way, very accommodating to a group of women's needs! . I would recommend this house to anyone, it is family friendly, plenty of space, VERY CLEAN and just perfect for any occasion!

Wonderful Girls Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic house for our annual girls weekend! 7 women in our early 50's and we could not have had a better time. The location was perfect for going to the beach and also walking into the town of York. We noticed right away how clean it was and the handwritten note and bottle of wine with the personalized label on it was such a thoughtful touch. The rooms were all decorated so beautifully and every time we went into a room, we'd notice another charming detail that we hadn't seen before. Tim and Carol were so easy to work with and we hope to return next fall!

Great House,Great Neighborhood,Nice Owners

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 just came back from Tim and Carols lovely beach home on the Nubble for the 4th of July week 2015.We've stayed in York for over 20 years and have had many beautiful houses and this one ranks right up there.The house is classic,built in the 1900's,it shows so much style;from the huge front porch with "adirondack" wooden chairs,to the classic wood floors,modern kitchen.4 bedrooms upstairs...that were very comfortable by the way...every person in a different room praised the comfort of the beds(unusual sometimes in vacation homes ??LOL), there was another beautiful deck overlooking the water on the second floor and two living rooms.the location was perfect,we always went to long sands in the past ,but the seaweed was overabundant this year,so we went to short sands...which was a short 10 minute gorgeous walk from Tim and our surprise everyone enjoyed this beach more than what we were used to at" long sands",I especially enjoyed the kids playing wiffle ball,kick ball and volleyball in there huge yard on the side of the house,it made it enjoyable and comfortable for the older sector,to kick back and have happy hour and apps on the deck while the kids were close.I've traveled all over the world and I give this house two thumbs up for a York Beach rental property....The Rivest Family

very impressive!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Maine for my uncle's celebration of life. 3 families came from all over the country and we had relatives nearby that attended the celebration. The house was fabulous. It is as big as it looks in the picture. Plenty of room to comfortably move around and a great layout. The hot tub was clean and hot. There are many instruments about the house as well as a beachy décor. We absolutely loved it and we will stay again. The owners were great. Thanks for making this weekend special for us. I am sure that my uncle was smiling down us.

Great Girls Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Rain, sleet and snow did not stop us from having an awesome girls weekend. The house is very cozy, with great furnishings, decorations that are also conversation pieces and a well stocked kitchen. The floor plan has a nice flow that lets you gather in different rooms yet feels open at the same time. The house locations is great - we walked to lunch in the village before the rain set in. The owners were great to work with and made our last minute getaway so easy. We are hoping to come back when we need our swim suits rather than our rain boots!
