Kennebunk Beach cottage description

A cozy, comfortable, un-winterized traditional Maine cottage with the ocean literally in the backyard. In the heart of a summer residential community, our family summer home is next door to a full children's recreational swimming, sailing, tennis, golf, marine biology and arts program sponsored by the Kennebunk Beach Improvement Association. Additional activities are focused outdoors with a child-safe tidal cove for swimming as the water comes in over the warm clam flats, a gorgeous public beach with town lifeguards and bathroom facilities, walks to quiet estuaries and neighboring public beaches, shopping in nearby Kennebunk Lower Village and Kennebunkport, close to amusements and supermarkets when needed. This is not an investment property; it's our family home for rent starting early June through Labor Day, and by special arrangement into mid-September.

Indoors, the cottage features four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, modern appliances, 72-channel cable service downstairs with DVD player, all linens furnished, rent includes all utilities and taxes, space for parking two cars. Outside, a porch surrounds three sides of the house, an outdoor wash off shower, double kayak with paddles and PFDs, lawn furniture and gas grille.

                      Additional information about rental rates

                      Additional Fees and Taxes:

                      Refundable Security Deposit of $US 500.00 net of deducted cleaning fee. Balance remitted thirty (30) days from departure. Cleaning charges run from $100.00 to $150.00 [and up] depending on the outgoing condition of the property. State of Maine Casual Rental Tax of 7% is included in the base rent lease rate of $US 3,800.00 per week or other lease rate, as applicable. Utilities paid by landlord.


                      Notes:

                      Rental interval begins early afternoon Saturday and ends mid-morning on Saturday to allow the cottage to be cleaned in the way it was prior to your stay. Saturday is observed as changeover day, which is customary for Kennebunk Beach area rental properties. Because the minimum stay is seven (7) days, requests outside of Saturday to Saturday rental dates cannot be encouraged.

                      For stays of one (1) week, check in full due upon return of signed hard copy lease document. For stays greater than one (1) week, check for the first week due upon return of signed hard copy lease document. In instances of more than one (1) week stay, full balance of rent due may be paid in advance and must be paid upon arrival. Security deposit of $US 500.00 must be paid in full upon arrival.
