2 bedrooms, full bath, ocean views, steps to your beach chair, cable/internet
My husband and I purchased this property with my parents. We take a lot of pride in making annual improvements to the inside and outside and are very happy with the present condition of our cottage. We have received outstanding reviews. We completely renovated this entire unit over the last 5 years. New kitchen pictures will be updated soon.
Andrea purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Andrea chose Pine Point
We LOVE the location. It is such a great find.
What makes this Cottage unique
It is steps to the beach, on a public way to the beach. This part of the beach is gorgeous and not generally crowded as we are a mile from the Pine POint parking lot and 2 miles to OOB. Also, there is no need to carry all kinds of beach gear. You can keep it at the cottage and come back for rest breaks in the AC and have lunch on the picnic table.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We really enjoyed our stay. Andrea and her parents (who live downstairs) were very friendly, welcoming and could be reached easily if we had questions. The unit was just as described, a few steps from the beach, which is less busy at this height than in Old Orchard or closer to Pine Point's public parking.
Everything was spotless, the kitchen was very well stocked with cooking implements. There was plenty of room for the 5 of us (3 adults, 2 kids) and all found their beds quite comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the front room, with its large windows toward the beach, and the lovely sea breeze that came in in the evening. The neighborhood is very quiet. There is a cute yard with rinsing shower (very useful), picnic table and a charcoal grill. We were lucky that the weather was perfect, but should that not be your case, there is a smart TV, dozens of DVDs and a few board games to pass the time.
We definitely recommend renting this unit and would not hesitate to book it again in the future!
Good location, unfortunately a bad smell through red algae’s at several day‘s.
The place has a beautiful view. The owners are wonderful. They are very accommodating. We can't wait to go back. It's quiet, but close enough to everything.
A great resting spot in Maine
We are a family of four that has been staying at this cottage for over 5 years, and it is always the highlight of our summer.
The cottage is very clean and maintained. Andrea and her parents upgrade the cottage every year, and are very responsive to questions/requests from customers.
The cottage itself is great for a family vacation. It is has a well-equipped kitchen to prepare meals, an eating area, a newly renovated bathroom, and plenty of room to kick back and relax.
The location of the cottage is a huge plus. Pine Point Beach is outstanding, offering a great mix of nicely low tide (great for young children) and a more active high tide (great for older children), allowing for a huge range of activities on the beach. Plus, this section of the beach usually has lots of other young families on it, making it a family-friendly area.
The cottage is also nicely centrally located, making trips to Old Orchard Beach, Scarborough and Kittery for shopping, Portland, Kittery, and FunTown SplashTown easy excursions.
We can't wait to come back again this year!
Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to review our cottage rental. I look forward to seeing your family every year! Andrea.
Ideal location - very well maintained cottage!
I've been renting summertime cottages in Maine for the past 23 years, and it will be my 4th time at this cottage, which is, by far, the best I've rented. The cottage is clean, bright and airy. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds are comfortable, and it's a real plus not to have to bring your sheets and bath towels. There is a view of the ocean from the dining room / living room window. Owners are just great, they actually live on the ground floor. They are very knowledgeable about restaurants ans attractions nearby and give EXCELLENT customer service! The location is ideal, just a few steps from Grand Beach, which is also the best I've seen so far in Maine. The beach has a nice, regular slope going in the water (no sharp dip), which makes it a lot safer for children. If you can manage going up a few steps (the cottage is a 2nd floor unit), I highly recommend it. You won't be disappointed!
Thank you so much for writing a review. We look forward to seeing you again this summer!
Great for our family of 4
Our family has been renting in this area of Maine for the past 10 years. Pine Point is such a great area of Maine to visit. We have stayed at this cottage for the last four years, and we always look forward to coming back. The flat has everything you need while away. Accommodations are perfect for a beach get a way. The owners live downstairs and are happy to help in any way needed. There is plenty to do and see in the area. Our favorite spots are Bailey's ice cream, the nature walk nearby, OOB for the kids and the beach 99% of our visit. We know Portland is near by, but honestly, we are so happy to enjoy the beach, we never venture into the city. I would highly recommend this flat to anyone interested in vacationing in the area.
Thank you so much for your review. I look forward to seeing your family again this summer! Andrea.
Pine Point is part of Scarborough Maine. You may want to stay at Pine Point and take in the beach sights or you may want to travel to Historic Portland to visit the unique shops or dine at the local restaurants. Kittery, Kennebunkport and Freeport are all within 30 minutes. The cottage is conveniently located off of East Grand Avenue, easy to reach from 95 or route one. This cottage is located on a quiet part of Pine Point beach.
