About Ann Burton

This property is a family owned property, we live locally and have enjoyed this beach for 30 years.

Ann Burton purchased this house in 2015

Why Ann Burton chose Biddeford

This house is ideal for enjoying the beach, you can wake up in the morning to the views and sounds of the ocean, enjoy it all day long and go to bed at night with the ocean waves breaking outside your window. This area of Biddeford Pool is close to many local tourist areas including Old Orchard Beach, Kennebunkport, Portland and Kittery Maine and so much more.

What makes this house unique

On private beach front property, close to many area attractions but you get to stay separate from the tourist crowds. A little bit of everything for any family vacation.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this house in Biddeford this past fall, and we can't say enough about how wonderful our trip was. The house is located on the beach, which made for a beautiful view of the morning sunrise. Chairs on the patio provided the perfect evening with a beverage listening to the sounds of the ocean. The house was fully stocked with blankets/sheets/pillows/towels and misc kitchen/bathroom items. My family enjoyed the house so much, we intend to visit again in 2016. The only drawback, if you could call it that, was minimal parking behind the house. It was a tight fit for two cars. Even still, I would highly recommend this house. It was very roomy with plenty of room and the convenience of a washer/dryer was an added bonus. The owner was very pleasant, and easy to deal with. I give this house/owner five stars!

Great Location and Set Up

  • 5 of 5

Off season girls weekend with 6 of us and we found the home clean and had all amenities for cooking and enjoying the home. Pictures dont do this home justice. Every window has a beautiful view of the beach and this home is the last in a row so one side has completely unobstructed views as well as the front of the house. The beach itself is flat, and sandy and enjoyable to walk. Close enough to Kennebunkport, Portland and Freemont for shopping and dining. Very easy transaction and nice to rent from.

Quiet and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about my experience renting this home from Ann and her family!

It was clean and very well stocked with all the kitchen items you could want! The beds were comfortable and the location is out of this world! The family that rents this is very friendly and so is everyone on the beach! We happened to hit a beautiful warm stretch of weather in September (unusal for ME) and spent many hours enjoying the house and beach! There were beach chairs to use and sitting on the patio enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning or a cocktail in the evening is just the perfect way to start and end your day!

I am already looking for the next time we can clear our calendars and come back for more!

Thank you Ann and Jack for a wonderful vacation! I will definitely be back!!

Beautiful & Serene

  • 5 of 5

We were 9 in our party including two toddlers. (Ann provided us with a pack 'n play and highchair!). Enjoyed our stay in this lovely house by the sea. And it really is the sea at the bottom of the steps at high tide! The view from all the windows is awesome. The sunny dining room and master bedroom are wonderful. King size in the master. Queen bed in the second balcony room. Sand and beach toys. Adirondack chairs. There's an umbrella and shovel, but it was too cool and breezy for our use! The beach is smooth and perfect for walking, jogging, beach-combing. Quiet and secluded. Hardly any traffic on the road. Couch sectional is quite long and wide - great for our young adult son to sleep on. Cushioning is sturdy and comfortable. Little one-year-old found it perfect for walking along and peering out at the waves. No shortage of pillows and bedding available. Well equipped kitchen. Charming sea decor. Games for young and old. We never turned on the TV! :-) Thank you Ann for making our stay amazing. Frank & Sally R. - Orlando, FL

Heaven on Earth!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife , myself, my daughter and 2 grandsons just stayed at this beachfront house and what an amazing time we had! This property has it all! You step off the back patio right on to the beach. This stretch of beach is pristine and the sand is so soft! The house is so inviting with a beautiful master bedroom with a king size bed and 2nd bedroom with a queen. The 3rd bedroom comes with bunk beds and a single bed, perfect for 3 munchkins. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. There is a washer/dryer and dishwasher. We used the gas grill to cook out on the patio and ate dinner looking out over the ocean. I can't say enough how much we loved this place! Ann was very friendly in helping us with details. This place is truly heaven on earth. Thank you thank you thank you Ann for a perfect vacation home in a perfect location! Paige & Scott R Cincinnati
