Comments from 2015 Renters: 'Thank you for letting us stay in your house this weekend. It is beautiful and convenient, everything was perfect. We have been renting different houses in Maine and New Hampshire in the last years and I have to say it was, by far, our favorite one.' Anne-Marie G., 2015

Comments from 2013 Summer Renters: 'Just wanted to let you and your brother know that we had a wonderful trip and enjoyed our stay at your house. I guess we picked the right week to be at the beach because it was hot! The ocean water was very refreshing. We spent just about every day at the beach and loved the fact that the house was walking distance to the beach, pier and miniature golf. We also enjoyed watching a Raging Tides baseball game (the stadium is just up the street from the house). We did venture out to Acadia National Park for a day. We got the kids up at 6:00 am and returned around 11:00 pm. We were only able to see the highlights because of time constraints, but did stop and eat at the Jordan House.

All in all, a great vacation. Thank you for sharing your house. We rarely vacation in the same spot twice, but definitely would consider a return trip.' Laura, S. 2013

'First of all, we want to Thank You for providing such a nice home to spend our vacation. Your home far exceeded our expectations and we would not hesitate to rent again if it were available. We have already told some of our friends about

the home and some do visit there, so you may get some correspondence. The house was very clean and well kept up and spacious enough for the whole family. It was located close enough to the beach and everything else going on. The neighbors were great and a nice neighborhood.' Gary B., 2013

'This is our second visit to your home in OOB. We absolutely love this home and the owners. The owners truly care about their renters and are responsive to any issues. We love the location and the cleanliness.We have never had a problem that could not be easily resolved, so there is NOTHING that we don't like. We look forward to enjoying this house each year.' Lynn. G., 2013

Comments from 2010 Summer Renters: Our stay was excellent -- loved the location, close enough to the beach but away from the beach traffic

loved the porch, spent many afternoons reading & sipping wine........ Your kitchen was great, everything we needed;

having a washer & dryer was also a big plus. My family, friends and I wanted a vacation on the beach to just chill.

Your house was so comfortable, even the teenagers commented on how nice it was (kids never notice anything!). We were close enough to the attractions to walk and far enough away to enjoy the peace & quiet. I will keep your email address for future vacations and will definitely recommend to anyone I know. Gail H., 2010

Our family enjoyed your place and our stay there. Most of all, we are thankful for the memories that our family now has because of our stay there. The house was very clean and tidy when we arrived. The set up and space was nice. Having the house stocked with almost EVERYTHING was great! Joyce D. and family, 2010

great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This stay was great! The house is very clean and well kept and has everything you need. It is in the perfect location, about 2 minute walk to the beach and a 10 minute walk to the pier. The owners have great communication skills and there were no problems getting in contact with them. I have no complaints about my stay here.

Old Orchard Beach is one of Maine's premier family vacation areas; seven miles of sandy beach make this town a destination for many people. Located just south of Portland, there is great access to the southern and mid-coastal towns of Maine including Kennebunkport, Saco, Biddeford and Scarborough.
