Comfortable and clean. Easy access to the Beach and downtown. All supplies you would need for the beach. Great host with great communication! We can't wait for our next trip!
The owner was great, responding to all my questions before we went on vacation and very quick to respond when we noticed a leek in the kitchen which turned out to just be the air conditioning unit improperly installed in one of the bedrooms. My husband and son took care of it but the owner was very quick to get someone there if we needed it. The house is in a great location. Plenty of room. Inside was very clean. The outside, not so much. The grill was filthy and the chairs were scattered all over the backyard. After we cleaned it up, it looked much better. One of the complaint I have is the fact that most of the downstairs furniture was very uncomfortable to use. The dining room chairs were falling apart. The sofa is terribly uncomfortable. The blue chair was leaning to one side and ripped. The kitchen was great and very well equipped. Very rustic decor. Nothing wrong with that if that is your style. The porch was very disappointing. Windows very dirty and were not operable in the front therefore difficult to get a cross breeze in. The porch looks much better in the pictures. But my biggest complaint is the fact that the downstairs has no air conditioning unit. We were told to leave the ones upstairs running and put a fan at the top of the stairs. It works somewhat for the living room but since the rooms are all separated, the kitchen was VERY hot. The fan constantly running up the stairs was very noisy and inconvenient as we were constantly going up and down the stairs. Overall it is a great house but it does need a lot of refreshing inside and out. Great that it has 2 full baths. Overall, it is a great house. Just needs a bit of TLC which I understand is difficult to keep up when you rent. Not sure this review is fair since I am a very picky person and I like the house to be cool and comfy and comfortable furniture to sit on. If you're someone who is not as picky about those things, then this is definately the house for you.
We were a little disappointed to read this review. We appreciate a 4-star rating but strive for ‘5’s. We pride ourselves on providing a clean and homey atmosphere for our guests. We’re glad these renters identified that they found the home roomy and very clean. Clearly the vintage beach decor that we have created doesn’t appeal to them and greatly influenced their comments. As the numerous pictures reflect, the decor includes antiques, vintage paintings and signs on the walls. 4 years ago we had a water pipe burst and we had to gut and re-do the whole 1st floor— it has a new updated kitchen, new hardwood floors throughout, and newly painted. The upstairs was was freshly painted and carpeting was replaced 2 years ago. We added cordless room darkening shades in all the bedrooms this season. There is not A/C downstairs and we don’t advertise as such; but there is a separate unit in each bedroom and there are ceiling fans in the living room and dining room. The patio is decorated as shown in the photos. Guests move around the plastic Adirondack chairs for their own preferences and sometimes do not return them to the original positions. Interestingly, when we arrived after their stay, all the patio chairs were stacked in a corner.
House had everything we could need and more!
We had a great time at Cheryl's place. The house was beyond equipped. It made packing for a beach vacation so much easier. Between beach chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas, tennis rackets, basketballs, laundry detergent, aluminum foil and more, there wasn't anything I "wished" they had. The house is in a great location in between OOB and Ocean Park. Our teenagers loved walking to both. We walked every morning to Ocean Park, got coffee and cinnamon rolls, and checked out all the charming cottages on our way back. The only thing that bummed me out a little bit was the train, but my family all agreed it was worth it to be so close to the pier. We brought out labradoodle, and he was super comfortable in the house. It was nice to be able to bring him and save on doggy day care costs. I will say that I was a little worried renting a house that allowed pets, because you never know if it will be obvious that other dogs were there. There was absolutely no trace of other pets. My son has allergies and asthma and he had no reaction. that's a testament to how well they clean the house. Thank you Cheryl for an awesome family vacation!
Our happy place
We loved vacationing here starting with the cozy screened in porch, clean, well equipped kitchen, pantry in the dining room, beach decor living room and comfortable bedrooms. The pass thru from the kitchen to the porch was a big hit! Plenty of beach equipment for your use along with outdoor table and chaises! Can’t forget the outside hot/cold shower! With only a short walk to the beach....this place has all your needs for a care free vacation!
Thanks so much for your positive feedback. We’re so glad your family had such a great week. It was a pleasure having you and we look forward to having you back.
We’ve stayed here for quite a few years. It’s a great place! Everything you need and more! Hoping to return again. The owners are awesome.
Thanks for your kind comments! We so appreciate you choosing our home year after year, and we always look forward to having your family back!
Great Beach House !
We had an excellent week. The beach was within sight. The house was clean and comfortable and the air conditioners in the upstairs bedrooms made sleeping easy on hot nights. Would definitely rent again!
Thanks for your kind comments! We appreciated having you as guests and hope to have you back again.

Ideal location! Steps to a world-class beach -- a beautiful 7-mile stretch. A perfect spot to enjoy New England Fall Foliage. A short walk in one direction leads you to the pier, arcade and Palace Playland Amusement Park in Old Orchard. Head the other way and you'll find antique shops, and the quaint village of Ocean Park with shuffleboard, gift shops, and an ice cream shop. You can also get to the Amtrak station and Pirates Cove Mini golf by foot.
Other Activities: shuffleboard, amusement park, water park, arcade, bowling, movie theatres
