About Rick Anderson

Kathy is recently retired from a Boston hospital having been a medical assistant for many years. Rick is a recently retired automobile mechanic. We soon hope to escape the New England winters in Florida but will always return to Old Orchard Beach for the summers.

Rick Anderson purchased this condo in 2009

Why Rick Anderson chose Southern Coast

Rick has spent time in Old Orchard Beach every Summer since 1970, and a walk through town now has the same timeless feel that it had back then. OOB offers anything we could possibly want in a Summer vacation. We can sunbathe on the beach, indulge in some guilty pleasure fried clams and Pier Fries, or sit on the beach at night and listen to the surf. It's a perfect remedy for the madness of life in the city.

What makes this condo unique

We can walk to the pier and the beach without the hassle of paying to park. If there's a pop up shower we can wait it out and head back to the beach when it's over. The condo is right in the center of activity, yet it's on a side street that offers quiet and privacy. But the feature that we really fell in love with was the front porch. It's a perfect place to unwind and watch the sun set.

Great place and great location

  • 5 of 5

This condo in OOB is in a perfect location, just a block from the main street (avoiding some of the noise) and 2 blocks from the beach and the pier. I've stayed here 3-4 times and loved it. The condo is always clean and well kept and has a nice flat screen TV with lots of stations for early evenings. But don't miss the Thursday night fireworks; just a 1-minute walk from the condo. It's easy to drive to Portland or down to Kittery for shopping. Owner Rick has always been very polite and accommodating and responds quickly to requests. I highly recommend this condo. I'll probably be back again.

Very clean and quiet condo in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two boys (ages 12 and 14) stayed at Rick's condo and we had a wonderful time. My kids loved it, especially since they were walking distance to everything: the beach, the pier, the restaurants, amusement park, arcade, basket ball court and beach. They could easily come and go as they pleased.

I loved the fact that the condo was so close to the beach. The condo is in a nice quiet building with friendly tenants. The condo is very clean and nicely decorated. Although I brought my own, the condo was well stocked with everyday things such as toilet paper, paper towels, soap, etc. I was missing one thing (a broiling pan) and Rick brought me one right away. To me, this was a clear indication that Rick cares about the needs of his tenants. The porch was an added bonus. I liked to read my book and have my tea on the porch in the mornings and evenings.

The condo was big enough to accommodate my family of four. The kitchen has an eat-in area with a good sized table and chairs. I strongly recommend this condo.

In the middle of everything...

  • 5 of 5

Rick's condo unit was just what we needed to enjoy a week away... Unit had a large living area and wide open kitchen, clean and well stocked with everything we needed... Unit has it's own street entry with a porch and an assigned parking space... Combo lock made for easy IN and easy OUT... Location was short stroll to all the activity and shops of Old Orchard Beach Pier... OOB is located for easy drive trips to Portland, Freeport shopping, Portsmouth, NH, and Kittery, ME... Can't say enough of how friendly Rick was. Took the time to come over and welcome us the first day... My wife and I will seriously consider this unit when planning our future trips to the northeast...

Sweet condo near the beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I have been staying at Rick's place for the same 2 weeks every year for a number of years now. The condo is small, one bedroom, but for the 2 of us, it's just the right size. It's very clean and since my husband has allergies, that is very important for us. The location is perfect, 5 minute walk to the Main St., The Pier and the beach. And the beach is phenomenal! We walked it everyday at low tide as well as sat on the beach, working on our tan :). The other nice thing about the condo is the porch right outside the door where other building occupants sometime sit and socialize. We have met some of the nicest, friendly people on that porch! Definitely recommend this sweet little condo for your vacation in Southern Maine.

Great Location !!!! Very Clean and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Great location, we used the condo for home base and took several day trips, Rick was very helpful with suggestions on day trips. This was our first trip to the Northeast. Thank you for making our trip memorable. There are several restaurants within walking distance that have great food, great service and reasonable prices. If you need to stay in this area, I highly recommend this condo.
