Great time in ME
Great time in ME
This is the second year we've rented this property and we're planning to rent again next year. We find the location of the house great, the house very "homey" and the property owners very pleasant to deal with. We love Cape Porpoise and some day look to retire up to the area. The screened porch is our favorite room of the house -- it's a great place to sit out on during an afternoon and catch some nice cool breezes. We have no negatives to afford this house and our entire stay!

This house has no AC so be sure to bring lots of fans with you as you do not want to open the windows (most of then are painted shut or don't open) because the "marsh" area is a drainfield for the septic system and the smell of raw sewage will go right thought the windows!Make sure you bring an air mattress as the queen bed in the master bedroom has a mattress that would be comparable to a concentration camp mattress. The toilets clog, so be sure to find the plunger right when you get there. You may want to bring some drano for the sinks and bathtub. Don't take too many showers as there is not a lot of hot water. Bring a cooler in case the fridge breaks because the landloards will take three days to replace it! Wear slippers because the floors are so dirty that your feet will be black after a few mminutes of walking on them. Bring lots of movies because all the channels you're going to get on that TV are news and shopping. The washer will do about three towels and that is it so be prepared (if you have kids) to be doing 5 loads a night! I think I hit all the highlights of the house. Good Luck if you rented this place!

Owner response: ADDENDUM: 7/2013 All windows in the house have been replaced and the queen sized bed has a new mattress as of 2012- Please read on for my response in 2010I think if you choose to rent this property you will have a great experience and I would like to clarify/correct a few things that were written in this most recent review. It is true that the house does not have air conditioning, however we provide multiple fans for your use-five. Of course, on the very hot weeks of summer-and this summer there have been many, it may be very warm. If you choose to open the many windows that will easily open (yes it is true some windows are painted shut and we do have a long term goal to replace those) the Marsh is outside/in the back yard-by the way you may spot blue heron/ducks other wild life out there. However, you will not be smelling septic because the house is on town sewer and water. The smells of the ocean and a small fishing village will be nearby. We always leave the house very clean when you check in, including the floors. However, there is no daily maid service so you will need to tend to cleaning up after your activities unless you would like to hire a cleaning service and we would be happy to provide referrals. There is a brand new refrigerator in the house and unfortunatly when the last refrigerator went (which was just 4 yrs old) it happened on 4th of July Holiday which was on a Sunday, so many businesses were closed on Monday as well and therefore it did take a few days to determine that the new refrigerator was not easily repaired. We as homeowners, will respond to any concerns that you report to us immediately and if in the very unlikely event that the brand new refrigerator in the home breaks again and we can not immediately replace it due to a holiday we will at the very least provide you with a cooler as we did in the last situation. The other appliances including the small stackable washer and dryer are in great working order. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have more questions prior to booking your stay inthe wonderful village of Cape Porpoise.
This was a great house. It was actually a little bit bigger than it appears in the pictures. It was very clean and all applicances were in great condition. It is very close (walking distance) to the grocery store and a few good restaurants. A short drive to the beach and downtown kennebunkport. The only downside was that it is on a busy street, but that did not disuade us from renting it again next year!
