About the owner: We live in Virginia on a farm and have three kids, ages 8, 10 and 12.
Why the Owner Chose Kennebunkport: I grew up on the east coast and vacationed throughout New England and the Mid-Atlantic as a kid. When I had kids, I decided to look in Maine for a vacation house and fell in love with Kennebunkport. The coast is so beautiful here and its easily accessible by car or plane via Portland. Our house offers the perfect blend of quiet along with tons of activities right from our home. We now have three kids and the best part is watching them grow up here and seeing them explore all that living by the ocean offers.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The unique feature of our home is the feeling of solitude you get sitting on the back deck or down at the beach. You feel like you're the only one out there, except for the seals, cormorants and seagulls passing by the shore. Yet there are so many wonderful things to do, from swimming in the pool and ocean, playing tennis, wiffle ball and football with kids on the beach, fishing, kayaking, and biking to name a few. The house is well-situated to host family get-togethers. Many of our renters are grandparents who want to get their extended families together in one house. Groups of adults -- be it a girls group, travel club or just good friends -- also work well in the house with five separate bedrooms, four of which have their own bathroom. Kennebunkport has many fun activities for children and adults. The food in Kennebunkport is outstanding too, whether your cooking fresh seafood at home or enjoying the fine restaurants in town or in Portland.
