Amazing Beach Rental!!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect rental. Spacious and well furnished house. Everything we could imagine was included. House was just as pictured. Having AC in two rooms was amazing for a beach rental and very refreshing from the heat when you return from a day at the beach. Beach is nearby and is in walking distance, 5 to 6 minutes as well as a short walk to the Pier. You are at the beach, but can relax quietly in your own private space as well. It was the best of both worlds:) Many excellent dining choices within 10-15 minutes in each direction and fresh lobster galore!! Very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend and expect to return next summer!

Very nice place, good value in OOB

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice rental -- house is clean, well-kept, very much as shown in the photos here. Nice backyard and friendly neighbors. A few minutes walk to the beach and it was wonderful to have AC on the really hot days. The owner was very responsive and nice to work with.

Excellent rental

  • 5 of 5

Perfect rental. Spacious and well furnished house. Everything we needed for the beach was included such as chairs, coolers, boogie boards and even a wagon to tow your goodies. Beach is handy and is in walking distance, 5 to 6 minutes. Very clean with all the comforts of home. Very reasonably priced. Would definately recommend and expect to return.

Old Orchard Atlantic Ave Rental-Great time!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for our stay and exactly as described in the listing. We had 9 people fit comfortably within the three bedrooms, the pull out couch and the provided cot. It was truly a 10 minute walk to the beach and the wagon that was at the house helped tremendously for both hauling chairs, coolers and little children! It had air conditioning which helped in the 90+ degree heat we had for most of the week. It cooled the entire first floor. The center of Old Orchard is also within walking distance if you care to, but just far enough so that it is not noisy. I highly recommend this property and personally hope to rent it again next year.

Excellent student rental

  • 5 of 5

I have searched for and rented several apartments/houses in the area the last few years being a UNE student, and this was and great find. It is extremely affordable which is a huge bonus for students on a tight budget, and the quality is fantastic. The rooms are huge, the entire house is very open and spacious, and there is no lack of storage space with several closets and a large basement. The bathroom is a good size and parking 3 cars is no trouble at all even in the winter. The neighbors are very friendly and the backyard is nice to have for the good weather. 5 minutes walk to the beach and 10 minute walk to the pier are great bonuses, and it is a short drive to Biddeford or Portland.

The landlord is a great guy who took care to not intrude on us at all while still handling any problems we had in a quick efficient manner. I would highly recommend it to any student who doesn't have a problem with a 15-25 minute commute as you really won't find a better value in the area.
