"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..."

"A perfect place to stay for a week for the purpose of our trip to Maine. We stayed in York Beach to attend a Coast Guard Ceremony for our nephew in Portsmouth. A great place to stay within walking distance to two great beaches and still be a very quiet place. Rental was unbelievably clean and neat. Will stay there again if available for our next trip to Maine"

"This house was great for our summer family vacation. We are three generations, ages 3 to 60+. Throughout the week we had 9-11 adults and 5 children. The kids (cousins ages 3 – 8) like to camp out in one bedroom, so that left plenty of bedrooms for everyone else. The house was so large that we never felt crowded (we joked that we would need GPS to find the kids). There was a bathroom for each bedroom, so that was a luxury compared to other houses we’ve rented. The house was a short walk to the beach. At the beginning of the week the beach had a lot of seaweed from a recent storm, so we used the public beach (which had lifeguards, which was a bonus) just down the road. At the end of the day we used a car to get the beach gear back but most of us would walk back up the beach to return to the house.
The area was very nice and quiet. The kids were able to ride their bikes around the neighborhood every day. The small back yard was mostly the parking area, but we found a table in the basement that we put out there and that’s where we usually all gathered for dinner. There’s a local market with fresh lobster and other food. Very nice people but expensive as small markets usually are. Supermarkets and large stores are about 20 minutes away in Biddeford.
The owner was very nice and helpful. We’d never been to the area so he answered several emails about the location and the house, and met us at the beginning of the week. It was a great week, a great house, very welcoming owner. We would definitely rent again."
