Adorable well appointed very clean Beach House across from the beach. You can actually hear the waves break from the house. Love the new kitchen and especially the Keurig coffee maker. Large flat screen TV in the living-room and 2 of the bedrooms. WiFi also....nice touch. Will definately rent again.

Awesome Beach House ---a short stroll to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Modern well appointed Beach House with brand new kitchen. Listen to the waves crash onto the shoreline from the living room. A short stroll (3-4 minutes) to access beautiful Private Moody Beach. A diamond in the rough!!

8/2/2015 We thoroughly enjoyed this home. It has a cottage beachy feel to it. I was very impressed with how clean it truly was. You can hear the surf of the ocean by opening the front door. That was great. I especially liked the keurig coffee maker that was very convenient. I would definitely recommend this little gem again and looking forward to next year already.

Fine cottage for small family.

  • 3 of 5

The location of the property is perfect for a short walk to the beach, which is across the street. The neighborhood is quiet, and the residents and renters seem to get a long really well. People jog, walk, and stroll every morning and evening along Ocean Ave (which is LOVELY), so it's perfect for easy, continuous exercise. The house is a bit dated and the decor is dark, but the pictures reflect that accurately in the listing. I loved having the stackable washer and dryer available. The property is clean and well-maintained, but the listing could be more accurate in a few areas. First, sleeping is for 5, at best. The owner seems to be counting the couch as a sleep sofa or futon, and it's neither. It's a sectional couch that has discreet chair sections making it inhospitable for sleep. You'd be better served on the floor. The marsh is behind the house, but views of it are obscured by plants and other homes. The view is open on other lots on the street. You will likely not fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean, as the bedrooms are on the backside of the house and summer humidity and heat necessitate rooms fans that are a bit noisy. The house could use an update as the carpets are fairly soiled, and it's my sense that there is likely some mildew in the bedrooms owing to seasonal moisture. Shower outside is not enclosed, but useful for a rinse of the feet before coming inside. The photo of the steps to the beach is a stock photo, as this is not a beachfront property. There is no additional parking, so be mindful of the two car designation. The nearly lots close at 4:00, so they're not available to you. I would suggest that the owner secure Wifi, which is increasingly common to most rentals now.

Owner's Response: Update:5/31/2013 New Bamboo hardwood flooring, sectional sofa with sleeper, dining room furniture, tables and lamps. I thought the pictures on the website were an accurate representation of the property. There is no mildew anywhere to be found in the house. My children have severe allergies to mildew and have never had a reaction when we stay at the house. The picture of the beach is an actual photo I took in the winter from the property across the street to show what the beach looks like. The point of renting a cottage on e beach in Maine is to relax and enjoy your vacation and not worry about your email. If you really need to be in contact with the rest of the world, you can use your. personal hotspot on your smartphone or visit the local library. We will be doing some major upgrades this spring in the living room/ dining room area. Pictures to follow.
