Guestbook comments from the manager

My family of 4 couldn't have been more delighted! We live in San Diego, first time to the east coast. This house is seriously steps to the beach. It's charming with the first floor keeping its original origin. Rustic with white boards and the original kitchen with farm house sink. This kitchen as owner describes is used mostly as a wet bar. We kept all our beverages and snacks as it was easy to walk off the beach and grab and go. Two beds rooms with two queen beds in each. Bathrooms are original. Second, floor is everything opposite of that... long bar ... beach views everywhere. Ocean breeze. Owners are a text or call away. Owners so down to earth and will meet your needs. We based on that alone will return. Don't over look this gem. The pictures actually do very little to market this property. I'm sending Pauline some as they are. Enter than what she has on this site.

Top notch accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Parcher by the Sea! Plenty of room for everyone and all our stuff. I loved cooking in the kitchen and having everyone line up at the huge counter to share meals. This house has the best of both worlds - downstairs is a bit more rustic, where upstairs is a little fancier. Just steps to the beach! Pauline and Steve were friendly and responsive hosts who maintain this lovely home with care. We would gladly stay here again!

The property was in excellent condition with the beach 75 feet away.

  • 5 of 5

The home was neat and comfortable for our family of 7. The only thing that would have been nice to have was wash cloths and beach towels. Overall it was a great experience.

Owner's Response: Awe, so glad you had a great experience. I keep going back and forth on beach towels. One year It was my biggest expense as they would be taken or just left on the beach. As for wash cloths, oh no, I didnt know. Next time, I owe you!! Enjoy the rest of the summer!!!

Plenty of space for a large family and only steps to an amazing beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week at Parcher by the Sea. We all had plenty of space to spread out and the beach was only steps away. Great place to make some lasting memories!

A few recommendations

  • 4 of 5

The secondary bedroom upstairs should be revamped; the queen bed runs wall to wall and totally splits the room in two so that the occupants have to "crawl" over it to get to the bathroom and/or clothes rack (there is no closet in this room and very little other storage). It is also very, very hot in the summer with the house having no AC.

Another consideration for this home is the lack of butcher knifes that actually cut. We grew frustrated trying to prep for meals with the two knifes provided; they were very dull and would not even cut vegetables much less meat.

With those exceptions, we had a great time and loved the location.

Great Location, Excellent Property, Beautiful Beach

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at this home. Just a very short walk to a great beach. The home fit my family just right. The home is fitted with all the amenities and kitchenware needed. Very large commercial refrigerator made it very easy to load up on groceries for the week. Very nice gas stove and oven for cooking. Pauline is a very involved property owner who wants to ensure that your stay is a great experience.

Looking forward to coming back next year.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week. The house was awesome. Well equipped and very comfortable for all eleven of us. It would have been nice to be right on the beach, however it was a easy walk. We had one issue with the fridge and Pauline addressed it promptly! Fantastic week and great location.

Pine Point Old Orchard beach line. Only one house back on the beach...Beautiful approx 2500 sq ft home, sleeps approx 12, plus, Incredible views, nice sandy beach. Keep in mind, this home is walking distance to Old Orchard's famous Pier and amusement parks. Within a half a mile you can enjoy fantastic lobster and Maine clams. Portland is fifteen minutes away, The 'Old Port' where you will never find that many bars and restaurants in a small walking distance; L.L. Bean store is just 30 minutes away in Freeport Maine, Look for Maine festivals..for example, the 'Clam bake' in Yarmouth... so much to do in a short time!

Things To Do & Area Sight Seeing : We will have a packet of fun things to do to make the most of your week or two here in Old orchard beach

Our seven-mile long stretch of wide sandy beach is understandably the major attraction. The plasma TV with surround sound..for a quiet night with the kids after a crazy day of sun and fun!

Other Activities: Relax, beach by day, Old Orchard Pier by night, or Movie night right at home
