Charming porches! Close to beaches! Excellent accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Cliff and Carol and Kathy,

My friend Carrie and my sister Louise, who joined us mid-week, were so very comfortable in your home. I particularly liked that you had not beachified it; that is, posters and nick knacks with beach themes. I have nothing against that, but it was nice to be neutral and not urged to remember that Life's A Beach! THANK YOU SO MUCH for the gift certificate to The Bell Buoy. My goodness, how generous, and how wonderfully supportive of your local economy, and perhaps your personal friend. We ate there 3 times with great pleasure, and brought 2 bowls of mariner's stew home with us after we left. My sister loved the soft sheets and even checked out where they were from (Oh! Land's End!). You had everything we needed, even a funnel. And you kindly supplied ashtrays for those of us who still abuse tobacco. Outside, of course. We also very much loved not having to make or strip the beds, or sign up for a separate linen service, which is unusual for rentals, and so appreciated. Plus you left us coffee, which was a thoughtful touch and we used it all. Not to mention toilet paper and paper towels. That was very good of you to provide. Alex was pleasant and helpful as well. One thing you might think of providing is a first aid kit. Carrie cut her finger immediately while cutting cheese (vacation injuries are so silly), and we looked everywhere for band-aides but we made do with paper towels and scotch tape! We went to Rite Aid and got some band aids later so all was well. Oh, and the other thing was, we couldn't figure out how to use the Dish TV very well. We wanted to find movies but were always stopped because we would have needed your access codes and your account would have been charged so we didn't want to do that even if we had them. It was a very minor inconvenience. We had books and magazines and of course our iPhones and iPads so no one suffered AT ALL. We also loved being in a residential neighborhood because we're old folk and we like the quiet. OK, we're in our early 60's, not old old, but old enough that 9:00 pm sounds like about the time to think about maybe eventually going to bed. The beds were very comfy, and the overhead fans great, and to have air conditioning on the first floor really provided relief on the very hottest of days. Thank you all so much for providing your lovely home and for all your preparations for our stay. It's lots of work and planning.

Most happily and with gratitude - Anne

Owner's Response: Dear Anne, Thank you so much for the wonderful review! It is very much appreciated. You made an excellent recommendation for a first aid kit, be assured it is on the top of my list for this weekends shopping. We also appreciated how great the house looked after you left. So glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Have a wonderful summer and hope to see you again. Kathy Rivers and The Petersons

Beautiful, comfortable oasis close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time here. Cathy was so helpful and available for anything we needed. The kitchen is perfectly stocked with any dish or cooking utensil. Love the sit-around island. The living room is great and comfortable for relaxing at the end of the day. The beds are so comfortable and having additional bathrooms is a real plus. It's such a quiet location with beautiful greenery through every window, but just moments to the fun and busy heart of Old Orchard. We're looking so forward to coming back. A real treasure.

Couldn't have chosen a better place!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just recently stayed at this wonderful home in Old Orchard Beach during a family reunion. It was the perfect rental for us and we could not have been happier with our choice. The house was charming, well-stocked, and very clean. The set-up was perfect for my husband, my 11-month old son, and I, along with my parents. We each had our own room with our own bathrooms upstairs. The rental provided us with everything we needed for our son, which made traveling so much easier...the owners even went out of their way to buy a high chair prior to our arrival. Many thanks to the owners and also the the caretaker, Kathy, for making our stay a memorable one. We would be thrilled to stay at this rental again if we are ever in Old Orchard Beach!!!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this house. The rooms were large (the closets big enough to put our babies' pack-and-play in them), and the living area was very nice. We walked to the little downtown and/or beach at least once a day. There was a little shack selling lobsters just at the end of the street, so that was great!

The only downside was having no kitchen table. Eating around the island was fine, but it wasn't as convenient.

The Absolutely Perfect Get-Away Rental House!

  • 5 of 5

Although we could be considered possible neophytes for being renters in OOB for this, our second year for vacation here, we have found what we consider an almost perfect place to call home during our stay in the area. This gorgeous, newly built home was ideally designed to blend in with the other older homes in the neighborhood so it doesn't look out of place, while at the same time utilizing all new materials in its construction.

There's a very spacious Living Room/Dining Room/Kitchen area on the first floor, complete with a granite-tiled countertop and kitchen island and all the amenities required to prepare and eat your meals; appliances include refrigerator, garbage disposal, dish washer, gas stove and microwave, plus there's a half bath on the first floor, perfect for guests! The second floor offers two very comfortable and spacious bedrooms with attached full baths. Whole house air conditioning and overhead ceiling fans completed the package.

There's parking room for two cars at the back of the house, and an additional plus was the easy walk to either downtown OOB or to the beach!

Should we return next year, this residence is definitely on our list of places where we want to stay!!
