  • Great for our large family

    "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."

  • Perfect location, great house

    "This house is better than the photos show. The location is perfect - easy for day trips to explore Southern Maine as well as to walk to many restaurants in the neighborhood. We enjoyed hearing the Star-Spangled Banner from the Navy Shipyard in the mornings, and watching the lobster boats from the porch. The house itself was immaculate. The kitchen is huge, wonderful new appliances, and washer/dryer. Master bedroom has a beautiful view and the bed and bedding were exceptional. The living room was very comfortable for 4 of us to visit and watch tv. Ned is a perfect host, helpful in all areas, always accessible, and very caring. He goes beyond what is expected and we appreciated the service. We highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to explore Southern Maine, New Hampshire and even Boston area."

  • Perfect Spot at the Beach

    "Great place for a small family (like ours) or a couple. The location is excellent! Easy walks to Short Sands Beach, Long Sands Beach and the Nubble Light. The owners were great and very helpful. House was just as described and being tucked away off the road made it very private and quieter."

  • Exceptional

    "Our family has rented many homes in Short Sands this one was by far the best experience we have had. This time we brought three couples (friends) with us, before we left we all agreed that this experience would be rated EXCELLENT. Breakwater was more than I expected everything we needed was there. We walked and walked and walked even to Nubble Light House. The view from the beautiful porch and bedrooms is exceptional. The eight of us plan to make this destination an annual event. Thanks Anita for stopping by to make sure we had everything we needed and for sharing your home."
