Welcome to our new, spacious, year-round home on the "Nubble" in York Beach, Maine, which will be your home away from home. Located just off Broadway in a quiet cul-de-sac neighborhood, far enough from the hustle and bustle of downtown, yet a short walk to the beach, town and the Nubble Lighthouse. You will enjoy breathtaking sunrises and sunsets and warm ocean breezes. Our large lot provides plenty of space for families to enjoy outdoor activities.
This tastefully decorated home features a large, bright, and airy master suite with king-sized bed, large walk-in closet, and full bath. There are also two additional bedrooms, each with queen-sized beds. On the main floor, you will find a spacious, fully-equipped kitchen and dining area. Any extras will enjoy relaxing on the sunny deck adjacent to the dining area. After a long day at the beach, relax in the den which includes plenty of seating, DVD and cable TV, or for a quiet evening relax in front of the remote-controlled fireplace in the formal living room. Our walk-out basement provides additional living and sleeping space, laundry room, and easy access to the back yard.
A short walk will take you to Brown's Ice Cream where you can pick up a cone to enjoy while continuing on to the Nubble Lighthouse and then on to Long Sands Beach. Or you can stroll along the boardwalk on Short Sands Beach and on to downtown. There you will find many local treats including fresh seafood, Goldenrod Kisses, or a frosty mouth-watering Hawaiian treat from Hawaiian Jim's Shave Ice. Children will have lots of fun exploring the tidal pools, swimming in the crystal clear waters, or playing at the playground. After a long day at the beach you can dine at one of many area restaurants and then take in a concert on the boardwalk or have fun at the arcade, amusement park, or zoo.
Our coastal Maine community is conveniently located one hour from Boston, Manchester, and Portland airports. Historic Old Yorke and Perkins Cove are a short drive. In 20 minutes or less you can visit the Kittery Outlets, Historic Portsmouth, the Ogunquit Playhouse, take in whale watching, fishing, and boating trips, and visit many restaurants, shops, parks, golf courses, and beaches.
Now booking spring, summer and fall 2012. Don't miss out on your desired week, start planning your vacation early and book with us. If you desired date is booked in this house, take a look at our second new property which is located in the same neighborhood with similar sleeping capacity (Homeaway, Property #184423).

I'm a former NH resident now living in St. Louis and was looking for a place to propose to my (now) fiance and also allow friends and family to celebrate this special occassion. I was completely satisfied with both the house and our host, Christie. The house is new and beautiful. All three bedrooms were very well appointed and comfortable. The finished basement also provided sleeping space (queen futon) and was very comfortable. We especially enjoyed relaxing and entertaining on the back deck after a day at the beach. The location is great if you don't mind a 15 minute walk to the beach. The beautiful Nubble lighthouse and nearby ice cream stand are also close by but if you choose to walk to these, as we did, be very careful of traffic, especially at night! The roads are narrow with lots of corners and nowhere to really get off the road and out of the way. Probably better to drive to, even though it is close by. Christie suggested the Nubble at sunset as a place for me to propose and it was a great suggestion. Such a beautiful and romantic place. And to complete the story, she said yes! If you like to cook, the house has pretty much everything you need. We did a lobster boil and cooked steaks one night and didn't need to bring a thing -they had it all right there. In summary, this was a beautiful place, the host was very detail oriented (which is good if you're a renter), and it is close to a lot of neat things to do. Highly recommended for families or adults looking for a place to hang out with other adults.

This is a really great, clean, well maintained, nicely decorated property. Very roomy...the teens enjoyed the extra space in the basement room while the adults liked the rocking chairs on the front porch! Nice having a laundry room. Kitchen had just about everything you need. Location is very convenient to downtown York and Short sands beach but we also took the very short ride to Long beach and enjoyed that area also...very limited parking, though, so go early or much later in the day!! But bigger beach area (esp. at low tide) for teens to 'play'! (lots of paddle ball, baseball and other assorted games going on) The walk to Brown's for ice cream is always a treat. Had a really great time!!

This was a great vacation home for a large family. Great separation of space when needed, short walk to Short Sands and playground. Short walk to Brown's Ice Cream and Fox's for Lobster and clams. Nice big yard to play ball and games. Linens included was a plus since we came from California. Could use beach towels and internet access, would be a plus.

Best vacation rental by far

This house was so gorgeous. I would definitely rent from the owners again. Before my vacation, we had some bad storms where I live, and the owners emailed me and checked up on my family. I thought that was so sweet. Also, they met us at the rental home and showed us around instead of just leaving the key and letting us find our own way around. The house was clean and located at a great place. We were real close to the Nubble Lighthouse, which was a treat. Also, we were real close to the beach. Easy to walk to the beach. If you eat in York, make sure to stop by Wild Willy's. Yummy!!

The house is beautiful and everything is so nice and new! The owner did a great job decorating! The house had everything that we needed for our stay and the owner provided us with all kinds of great information about York Beach. The area is nice with lots of fun activities - we loved the beach and all of the shops downtown! Thanks so much!

About the owner: Our York Beach family roots run very deep. My great-grandfather, Carlos B. Moseley, was one of the first settlers of York Beach and the property upon which both of our rentals are located was purchased by him in the 1860's. Our grandchildren are the 6th generation to have enjoyed fun in the sun in our York Beach home. Knowing how special a place York Beach is, Dan and I decided to build two new rental homes on these properties so that others may experience all that York Beach and the surrounding area has to offer. Our greatest joy has been meeting so many wonderful people through this venture.
The Unique Benefits at this House:

Our kitchen is fully equipped right down to our "Lobster Kit", all you will need are the lobsters.
