About David Deteso/Kathy Deteso

David and Kathy DeTeso currently reside in northern California, but they feel a deep attachment to Kennebunk Beach because David was born and raised just a couple miles from "The Beach House". They make an annual week-long trip to the house each summer with their four daughters to enjoy the beach and visit with friends and family. David and Kathy love to open up their home for rent by guests from all around North America for the remainder of the year. Many guests of The Beach House return year after year to carry on traditions with their family and loved ones. Thanks to their incredible friend and property manager who resides in the area, the house is maintained with excellent care.

What makes this house unique

"The Beach House" is ideally located directly across from the ocean, and within walking distance of both Gooch's Beach and Mother's Beach. The views are amazing!

Thanksgiving Reunion in Maine

  • 5 of 5

My husband's family joined us in Maine for the Thanksgiving weekend and we needed extra space so I found this rental on the Home Away From Home website. It was really easy dealing with the owner and he has a local friend to help with any pressing issues. There was a water main break in front of the house and although it was out of the owners' control they were responsive in answering questions etc. The home is a bit dated but it was very clean and had everything we needed. The view is to die for!!!!

Perfect oceanfront home for family gatherings!

  • 5 of 5

We just had the most wonderful time at Kathy and David’s Beach House! This was the perfect place to celebrate our parents’ 60th wedding anniversary. Even with 8 of us, there was plenty of space, beautiful views from most of the rooms and a very short walk to several wonderful beaches. The place was bright, clean and well-kept with a cute beach decor. If you like to walk, run or bike, there’s a long stretch of sidewalk that follows the coast inviting you every morning to follow it! Kathy and David were very responsive to all of my messages and very pleasant to correspond with. We were so pleased with the Beach House that we’ve already booked our stay for next year!

Great location for a family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Kennebunk. The house was set up with all the necessities for our family to enjoy a long weekend away. It's walking distance to town, a local playground and a great beach. We enjoyed having three of the four bedrooms with ocean views, a great front yard to play in, and great off-street parking. The house itself was large enough for everyone to spread out while enjoying our time together.

Great Location, beautiful views, perfect escape

  • 5 of 5

This home did not disappoint. All of the reviews perfectly describe the home and offered amenities. If you are on the fence... book it before someone else does. The owners were very communicative and receptive to questions, which made the experience that much more stellar. Dave & Kathy - thank you for making your home available for families to enjoy.
