Sports & Adventure Activities
Small and quant. Very nice beach home in a great location close to the beach and center of town but still very quiet. The owner was wonderful and helpful with helping us navigate local attractions. I would say it is great for a family of four. We can't wait to go back next year!
I had a wonderful weekend visit to this property. Alison was very flexible and understanding when my friend got a flat tire en route to meet Alison and pick up the keys for check-in. The apartment was very cozy and well-decorated. I appreciated that there was a TV in each room. The location is perfect: walking distance to the beach and close to many amenities but in a quieter location. Parking is easy because there is parking in the driveway. A couple of things to note. (These are not complaints as I had a wonderful stay!) There are a lot of stairs to get to the apartment so if you are with anyone with mobility issues this might not be the place for you. Also, the bathroom is on a separate floor from the bedrooms so, again, anyone with mobility issues might struggle. There is a train station and tracks nearby so if you are a light sleeper bring your ear plugs. Overall, I really enjoyed this property and wish I could have spent more time there. You will not be disappointed if you rent here. I hope to go back some day, especially when it's warmer and I can take advantage of the deck!
This is a great property. It was absolutely perfect for what we were looking for. The pictures do not do the place justice. Very accurate description in listing. The place was spotless. The owner is a fantastic person and was very accommodating. The property is just a short walk to the beach and downtown Old Orchard Beach. I cant say enough good things about our experience here. Highly recommended!
My best friend and i have been vacationing in Old Orchard Beach for 5 years and we have never re booked the same house until now. Alison was a wonderful hostess. She made sure we had everything we needed. The house was adorable and roomy enough for our 4 children. The house is just far enough from the main drag that we didn't get people walking by constantly, but close enough to the beach that it was an easy walk with all our things. We plan on re booking for next summer, and would recommend this rental to everyone!
Clean, comfortable, pleasant, and well-equipped
We had a great stay here. It's a nice place, homey, tasteful, well taken care of, and very comfortable. It was very spacious for two and could easily accommodate one or two more. The location is great: on a quiet street, walking distance to OOB and within easy driving or biking distance of many other great places to visit. There's a friendly neighborhood cat of uncertain provenance who thinks he lives there part-time, which is nice if you're into cats. The kitchen is quite well-equipped (although you might want to bring a sharp knife if you're going to be doing a lot of cooking).
Alison, the landlord, was a pleasure to deal with as well, although we didn't see much of her during our stay. When we realized at the last minute that the sheets we were going to bring wouldn't fit the bed, she very kindly provided the bedsheets and waived the nominal fee she ordinarily charges for a full set of linens and towels, which we really appreciated.
(A note about the provided wi-fi, in case it helps someone. On my Mac laptop running Mavericks, I had some difficulty connecting to the network. The solution turned out to be, instead of selecting the network from the list as usual, choose "Other" and enter the name of the network manually. Set the security type—I think it was WPA2 Personal, but I just tried them all till I found one that worked—and enter the password. I think this is a Mavericks problem, not a problem with the wifi, which worked perfectly for our entire stay.)
Excellent Vacation rental
What a beautiful as described property, very spacious, fully equipped with everything your family needs. Alison is a wonderful women and very accommodating if you need anything at all.
Already booked for our 2014 vacation and will be making this a family tradition.
Surf, swim, volleyball on the beach and play in the sun. Miniature golf, shopping, dining (my favorite is Joseph's by the Sea), Palace Playland amusement park (town square), bike trail, bird sanctuary.
