Great house for extended family stay near the beach
"We had a family holiday get together at the goose rocks beach house. It's a lovely house, tastefully decorated and well cared for. Plenty of room and privacy for our clan. Kids love the upstairs bunk bed room for sleeping and playing. Spacious open kitchen great for preparing big family meals. Close walk to the beach. I'm sure it's fantastic in the summer. Can't wait to do it again next year!"

"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)."

"We have not stopped raving about the week on "our island" since we returned from our trip! After being away from the Maine Coast for many years, we were itching to get back to the beautiful summers we remembered. We will never stay away again (we are already deciding when to go back to the island for 2016). It is incredible how quickly the day went by while we were "doing nothing"! We felt no need to leave the island at all! My husband ad I are on the go all the time and this was the perfect vacation for us. We had glorious weather, fabulous food (Jim supplied wonderful lobster & fish; Tudor is an incredible baker!) Catur was very responsive to our needs. The island has a spectacular location, the cottage is beautifully built, the grounds are wonderful to explore and the great city of Portsmouth is very close by if one feels the need to get off the island. It is not often a vacation spot exceeds our expectations - Gooseberry Island certainly did!!! For a couple, single individual or a family, what a special experience it will be. Folks back home can't believe the pictures! Thanks again for everything!!! B&M"
