nice week

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, clean, clean! Neighborhood was very upscale and very quiet. Weather was not great and because of stormy days we had a lot of seaweed on our little beach, however, we bought a sticker from the town and went to Fortunes Rocks Beach 2 days. We ate out a lot, didn't even grill once, but found some nice restaurants to eat at. Would rent here again.

Perfect family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house, the location and all of the amenities were perfect! Having everything there for the beach is such a bonus! We forgot our beach umbrella, so we really appreciated having use of those! And the kayaks were a blast! The only thing I missed was a fire pit for night time family camp fires. Other than that perfect! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home.

Bright, airy, picturesque coastal home

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful home on Hoyt Neck in such a nice quiet area of Biddeford Maine. Two bay beaches within 1-2 minute walk and then beautiful Fortunes Rock beach only 10 minutes away on bicycle. To the south (about 8-10 minutes by car is also Goose Rocks beach (gorgeous) which is also adventurous for those who want to go out on Timber Island at low tide. Timber Island is also accessible from Timber Point and that path is readily accessible from the home. Since the home is elevated, it gets the breeze from the ocean. Kayaks were great fun for my 5 boys ages 24 to 10 and even the older girls liked them too. The bikes were a big hit, so much so, that we went out and bought one for my youngest son so that he could join in riding with his older siblings. Would definitely love to return. It is clear that the home owner seeks to do his best for those who rent his home.

Absolute gem of a rental property

  • 5 of 5

Don't know if I can perfectly sum up this location after my wife and I and our two young boys stayed here for two weeks. First, the house is clean, well maintained, modern, and huge if you need extra bedroom space. Beautiful windows with good views of the ocean and moonlight. Perfect yard for playing on the grass. We utilized the bicycles, beach chairs and some of the beach toys that are in the garage. Second, if you like beaches, we had access to two private beaches which are perfect for families with kids. Only a short walk away maybe just a couple of minutes. There was literally nobody on either beach our entire stay and the weather was beautiful.

I can't say enough good things about this house and the only negative is that we had to leave. We WILL absolutely stay here again.

Nice home, clean, and plenty of space.

  • 4 of 5

This home was comfortable, well designed, and uniquely furnished. We enjoyed the layout. I did wish the cookware was a little higher quality but otherwise the home was perfect.
