Drakes Island house description

Our pristine cottage with a stunning location features 4 bedrooms ,2 full bath rooms across the road from a private beach. Enjoy the beautiful ocean views and the salty smell and sounds of the surf from a private deck.

Walk across the road to a private entrance to Drakes Island Beach, on the spectacular and tranquil north side of the island. Enjoy the afternoon breeze in the shade of the rear private deck. House includes washer, dryer and dishwasher. The maximum of six renters with a limit of 4 additional day visitors is strictly enforced, so the house can be maintained at a very high standard.

The property is close to many shops and dining places as Route One is minutes away. Once on Drakes Island, you may not want to leave since the island is surrounded by the Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve and Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge . Site seeing is available with Kennebunkport and Ogunquit, both only a few miles away.
Non smoking only -- no pets , sorry no exceptions!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: Our family has owned cottages on beautiful Drakes for generations, and hope to have it for generation to come. We cherish our cottage and are happy to rent to a family who will also love it as we do and care for it as it was their own. No parties, no gatherings !

              Why the Owner Chose Drakes Island:
              Pristine cottage with surperb location on the quite north side of the island with private beach access. We limit the guests to six to ensure the pristine condition can be maintained. Steal away with a good book, soak up the view, enjoy the sounds of the waves, walk for miles on a serene sandy beach.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Fall asleep at night to the sound of the surf, wake up to lobster boats gathering their catch from your ocean view master bedroom balcony.
