"As the father of two small children (ages 3 and 5) I highly recommend this location. It's a short walk from Gooch's Beach, a very family-friendly, non-commercial spot. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed digging in the clean sand, as well as exploring tide pools and a nearby breaker, where they found countless crabs and tiny sea creatures. It's the perfect spot for early-morning walks (and runs!) and twilight strolls. The house is also about a mile from Kennebunkport (close enough for my wife and I to walk into town for dinner) and its outstanding shops and restaurants (we especially loved lobster rolls and fried clams from the Clam Shack and artisan ice cream from Rococo Ice Cream). The neighborhood is very tranquil, and its residents are extremely friendly and welcoming. The house features a great kitchen and deck for cooking and entertaining. It's also very spacious. In fact, we were able to easily accommodate my brother-in-law, his wife and their baby for several nights. There are plenty of options to chance your experience (we visited the nearby Trolley Museum and took a lobster cruise) and ways for spend quality time with your kids (ours frequented a nearby seaside playground and rode their bikes on the quiet neighborhood streets)."

"Maine has been our favorite New England vacation area for the past 47 years. We were able to enjoy our time there with some of our children and grandchildren. Our sons reveled in returning to visit the beaches and the memories made during the vacations of their childhood. Our 6 year old grandson from California was fascinated with the idea of an outdoor shower and his 9 year old sister loved the early morning walks along Kennebunk Beach and, of course, shopping in the village of Kennebunkport. My husband and I simply enjoyed watching them experience the location - on the golf course and a short walk to the beach - and the house which offered places to play, watch the golfers pass by as we ate regularly on the deck, and many areas to 'cozy up' with a book. It gave us more wonderful memories. Thank you to the Brown family, we loved our time."

"The attention to detail exceeded every expectation. This home exudes wonderful energy. I love to cook and the kitchen is well equipped and easy to maneuver. Dining in the ocean view dining room and on the ocean view deck is perfect! The bedrooms are nicely decorated and quiet. The location to town is convenient and it is nice to be lulled to sleep by the ocean roar. I highly recommend this condo.
The owners are a pleasure to deal with and a wealth of local information."

"I spent a very pleasant week in this peaceful location with my family, parents and sister's family. Helen was very accommodating when I was trying to plan this vacation, also giving suggestions for things to do and where to get things like groceries from. The house is in a beautiful setting, well away from other houses with plenty of space to play outside for the kids. The pool was a wonderful addition, clean and a good size. The beach is a short walk down a dirt road and small path. Our children aged 9-12 could navigate this on their own. The beach itself is very small at high tide but widens out to a great flat play area when the tide goes out. We enjoyed many games of beach soccer, ultimate frisbee, and beach tennis. The water was cool, but delightful and the kids loved hunting in the rock pools for crabs. The house has many decks and nooks to find a sunny or shady spot to sit in to enjoy the peace, views and wildlife. We saw humming birds but the moose remained illusive. The screened porch was a great place to eat to avoid the mosquitos that emerged at dusk. We explored the nearby towns and beaches and a a fishing trip from Perkins Cove were a highlight, despite no fish to bring home. The house is definitely older, but comfortable and we really enjoyed the beautiful art hung around the house walls. Thank you Helen for a wonderful vacation."
