Always dreamed of owning an Oceanfront Property on the mainland!

Guestbook comments from the owner

June 01 A revelation to us after 20 years of going to the Florida panhandle for our summer vacation.We are completely sold on the beauty of Maine.We loved everything about our week here. Thanks for the gracious hospitality. June 02 Twice as nice as last year. We are very happy to have added an extra week to our stay. Enjoyed the view and walking on the beach and cooking in at our own Windows by the Sea. The view makes every kind of weather exciting!

Even better than the pictures! We had an amazing week in October for our family of four.

  • 5 of 5

The rental and the beach both, couldn't have been more perfect. The space fit myself and my husband along with our 2 and 4 year old without trouble. We had company one night and it was easy to entertain on the long porch with the great views! We will definalty be back again.

Our stay at the Fortune Rocks cottage in Biddeford Pool

  • 5 of 5

We went to sleep at night and woke up in the morning both to the sound of the waves on the shore. The cottage was clean bright and beautifully decorated. It had everything we needed including the beach right outside your door. We can't wait for next year. Thanks again Carol and family we had a wonderful time.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The oceanfront location was ideal; quintessential Maine - a rocky coastline abutting a gorgeous two-mile stretch of pristine beach. The owner(s) lives in the adjacent house but was unobtrusive and extraordinarily accommodating, if needed.

The apartment had all the amenities and is perfect for a couple or a family of four whose children are younger. The upstairs loft has two twin beds. Anyone over 5'5" might find the loft too cramp.

We stayed two weeks and fell in love with the area so much - we're in the process of buying a home at a nearby beach.

"Too Good to be True"

  • 5 of 5

My wife was looking for a quaint, cozy place for the two of us to get away for a week in Maine. When she found this place we were both thinking, "Yea right, this is going to be as good as it states." We were wrong. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! The location could not have been better: Right on the Maine Coastline, private access to a beautiful beach, just 20 mins from Kennebunkport and 35 mins from Portland. What's more, the owners, Carole and Sandra, did not miss a thing with the decor and making sure that we had everything that we needed. If you're looking for a place were you can relax, enjoy the ocean view from your bedroom, living room, kitchen and deck, and be just minutes from great restaurants and attractions, this is the place. We are already planning our return trip!

Stunning Ocean Views!

  • 5 of 5

This cozy cottage is exactly as it is depicted in the listing and is very clean and well-maintained. It has amazing ocean views and we loved going for long walks on the beach several times a day! We had wonderful dinners in Kennebunkport but mainly enjoyed the views from the cottage, the gorgeous beach, the peace and tranquility. Can't wait to visit again!
