Property description

*** Fall weeks available at off-season rate thereafter. 2016 rentals will be taken after thanksgiving as most of our renters return. ***
Lovely, recently renovated cottage just one block from gorgeous Goose Rocks Beach (6 Community House Rd - use mapquest, google maps is wrong!). The three bedroom home consist of one queen bed, one double bed, a twin with trundle, and a futon bed on the screened-in porch. There are two baths with showers. The kitchen was renovated just a few years ago and has new granite counter tops and new appliances. The screened-in porch is perfect for afternoon reading or cocktail hour. The front deck is the great spot for morning and midday sun whereas the back deck (which runs the length of the house) gets great afternoon sun. The living room has a flat-screen TV with cable and wireless internet. The house also has a bosch washer and dryer, outdoor shower, gas BBQ grill, and a importantly a lobster pot! The shed has beach chairs and toys for the renter's use. House is professionally cleaned in advance of your arrival. Renters provide their own linens.
Depending on your speed you can be at the beach in a minute! House has parking for two cars (maybe three if smaller cars!).
I renovated the cottage as if I would live there so it should have all the comforts of home and if anything is missing, just let me know! Its a cozy beach house and most renters return year after year.

The family-friendly beach is known for its clean white sand, which is perfect for building sand castles, searching for sand dollars, kayaking, surfing or exploring tidal pools on Timber Island at low tide. The beach has an Association which provides tennis lessons and other programs for kids, a general store and a small hotel with a bar - everything needed for a perfect summer vacation. Enjoy sightseeing just minutes away from the charming fishing village of Cape Porpoise or the bustling seaside town of Kennebunkport with quaint, one-of-a-kind shops and restaurants. Or, go antiquing up and down route 1.

It's a lovely spot - all past renters have returned.

Please note that rentals are not confirmed until a signed rental agreement is returned with 50% deposit.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

Why the Owner Chose Kennebunkport:
I grew up going to Goose Rocks Beach - it's a special place and I jumped at the chance to own there. While renting, I take advantage of the cottage and beach off season.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This is a recently renovated and lovely house just steps to the beach. Beach access is via the public access area of the beach (so, no concerns about beach access which can be an issue on other parts of the beach). The beach never gets too crowded given the extremely limited parking for day visitors. Its a wonderful community where kids can run and bike around without concern, or a glass of wine can be enjoyed on the porch while listening to the surf.
