We loved it here! Beautiful house in a great location
"My family and I had such a wonderful stay at Lilac Haven. We were able to walk to Short Sands beach in under 5 minutes and my kids loved the fact that we were next door to an amusement park! We arrived to find that they left us a wonderful gift basket with snacks and goodies and information about all the things to do in and around York. The house was fresh and clean and the garden outside was beautiful. You can tell they take pride in their home. We will definitely be back for another stay soon!"

"This beautifully furnished, spacious, well-stocked, well-equipped house, ideally situated on a quiet cove with an adjacent sand beach is a marvelous place for a large group. Our group consisted of a dozen people, 10 adults and 2 small children. The bedroom and bathroom arrangements assured a good degree of privacy when wanted and the communal spaces provided ample room for us all to be together. Everything about this house exceeded our expectations. The kitchen and pantry are a cook's paradise. The landscaping is lovely.
Kittery Point is a great starting place for exploring the Southern Maine and New Hampshire Coasts. It is not crowded and minimally touristy. The house itself is pretty secluded on an unmarked private road, yet it is near restaurants, shops, and yes, the famed Kittery Outlet stores, if shopping is on your agenda. The closest major town is Portsmouth, NH, a very comfortable and interesting place.
Nate and Peter were very accommodating of our needs. We needed a high chair and crib for our grandson and they were bought immediately upon our request. Peter and the gardening crew made sure that everything was in tip-top shape all week long. A side note, as we had small children in our party, doing laundry often was a necessity and the washer and dryer were amazing appliances. In fact, all of the appliances were top of the line.
I could go on and on, but I think you can get the picture. We all loved this place and recommend it without reservation."

"Overall, we were happy with the house. I would say it was not as clean as we would have liked it to be when we arrived, but this may be our fault. We arrived early and I don't know if there had been time for it to be cleaned from the last tenants. Also, there was some noisy construction going on across the street, but this was not the fault of the owners. Again, overall a good experience though. Great location with a view of the ocean. We would definitely rent the house again."

"We arrived with our broad family (kids and grandparents) and everyone seemed to have a splendid time. For a beach house, it is surprisingly well appointed and the living room (great room) is an excellent gathering place. I could go on and on, but it should suffice to say that this is an outstanding house in a wonderful location.
