It sits in a quiet residential neighborhood, has a great big private backyard with both a horseshoes court & a fire pit, but is less than a ten minute drive from the beautiful beaches of York. The owner clearly takes great pride in & care of this property, & it is furnished in a comfortable, up to date & homey manner. The finished basement, the abundance of beds and televisions & the big backyard provide plenty of space for even a large group of friends & family to spread out & relax. The guide book provides outstanding recommendations for both restaurants & local activities. Thank you, Joseph, for welcoming us into your lovely home!

The house was spacious enough for my family of 4 and guests to spread out comfortably in the 3 bedrooms. The beds and pillows were very comfortable, and a fan in every room was provided. We truly felt at home with beach chairs in the shed to use, a BBQ on the deck, and a well supplied kitchen and linen pantry. We even made use of the air mattress when the kids had friends sleep over. We stayed for two weeks, had beautiful weather to boot! Fabulous vacation!

When we arrived the house was in pristine condition. On the first day we noticed that the wireless internet service did not work. Ed, was on it immediately. He contacted his carrier and got a repair date of Monday. Then Ed gave us access to the wireless in the house next door so we would not be without connection. Much to our surprise on Monday, Memorial Day, the repair occurred and we had super-fast connection for the rest of the week. The place is right out of a magazine. The kitchen has all the utensils necessary to cook large meals and the gas grill will hold a ton of food! It even has a large lobster pot for cooking Maine lobsters or steamers. The beds were comfortable with plenty of extra blankets and all the towels we needed for the week. The Adirondack chairs on the porch made a nice spot for afternoon reading and across the street there were more Adirondack chairs offering a front row view of the ocean, Short Sands and sunsets. We wished there was more parking. The house has space for 2 cars to park (or 3 tiny cars). We cannot say enough about Ed. He was extremely helpful and accommodating. Throughout the entire process of getting a contract, sending deposits and then finally arriving, communication was quick and pleasant. If you want a great house right on the water with a fabulous view, this is the house to rent. You will not be disappointed by the sunsets that you get to see every night either. The price is reasonable and the amenities are excellent plus it is very close to outlets, restaurants and anything else you’d need during a vacation. Thank you Ed for making our vacation a wonderful one with family and friends! We hope to be back soon.
