Recent Southern Coast reviews

  • Great home in a peaceful beach community

    "My family stayed at High View for a week in July. We have been going up to Maine for years, but this year needed to find a new home that fit our needs (i.e. an 8 month old baby and a 80lb golden retriever). Stakes were high and our wish list was long. I'm so glad we took a chance on High View. Jonathan and Carrie were very responsive to our questions and made the booking process smooth. The home itself is great. Tastefully decorated, fully stocked with essentials for cooking, clean and bonus...baby proofed! It's located just steps to the beach, which is essentially private to the street. Low tide is incredible - you can literally walk to the nearby islands and explore. It's the perfect home if you have very young kids or older family members, as you can come and go from the beach as you please without having to pack everything up. The area itself is just beyond UNE, filled with lovely beach homes & cottages. The area even made for very serene and picturesque morning jogs before we hit the beach. All in all, it met our expectations and more. We hope to return next year!"

  • Perfect Location

    "Have been vacationing in Maine for 40+years. This with out a doubt ranks up there on our all time favorites list. The condo is fully equipped, clean and comfortable. The views both day and night are spectacular. So much to do in the area even late or off season.The owner's personal suggestions of nearby restaurants and activities was much appreciated. We hope to return again next year"

  • Simply Awesome

    "The property and location were superb. So close to everything. Beautiful beach, lots to do. House was fully equipped. All you really need are beach towels, clothes and food. The owners do a really great job of providing anything you can think of (and super clean...not that musty beach house smell). Linens on the bed so soft and comfy. We had a terrific stay and will definitely consider returning year after year if it works w/our schedules, etc. Almost don't want to recommend as then it might not be available when we need it :-) Jana is super responsive and super nice. Can't ask for anything better. Friends that visited were super impressed with the property/location. Tons of room. Thank you for opening up your home to us...even our little dog enjoyed his stay :-)"

  • A Historic Property w/ Up-to-Date Amenities!

    "A wonderful find! I booked a week to spend some vacation time in Maine with my Mom, and we had a fabulous stay. Our family has summer'd in the York area for more than 50 years, and we know the Long Sands and Short Sands areas well, but had never spent time in the York Harbor area before. One of the owners met us when we arrived. What a warm welcome! -- she gave us a tour and provided lots of helpful information about the area. This was definitely a quiet and peaceful place to stay, well away from the Short Sands craziness but close enough to visit when we wanted to.... The apartment was lovely -- immaculate, and fully equipped, with thoughtful touches throughout. The sun room was delightful, and we spent many evening hours reading, relaxing and enjoying the sunsets. The nearby Chapman Cottage (recently renovated by the York Harbor Inn and recommended by the owner) proved to be a great destination for Happy Hour drinks and small plates. Yum! And, of course no trip to York would be complete without the Goldenrod "salt water taffy show" -- which never fails to entertain old and young alike..."
