About Linda

This nearby beach is beautiful, and much of our time in Maine is spent there with our family and friends. Lots of beach for Bocce and waves for boogie boarding or surfing. We enjoy time spent in Maine. The nature trail at end of point is not to be missed. Catch it at low tide and you can venture out to Timber Island and cross the channel to a large beach. It's great for fishing and kayaking too.

Linda purchased this house in 2003

Why Linda chose Granite Point

We love the laid back feeling in Maine. No traffic, no hurry. The nearby beach is perfect for long walks, swimming, surfing, fishing and boogie boarding. The seafood is terrific. The Rachel Carson trail walk and beach area is not to be missed. So much to do as a family.

What makes this house unique

Swimming, kayaking, boogie boarding, shopping, walking, biking and great surfing.

Wonderful vacation spot!

We had such a wonderful time visiting Maine for our nephew's wedding. The house was beautiful, comfortable and the perfect place for a family vacation. We would certainly visit again.

Nice place but the laundry deal was not good

  • 2 of 5

Doing laundry or bringing your own sheets is not my idea of a vacation spot the laundry was definitely an issue

Owner's Response: Hello Mark, I'm sorry that the laundry options made it difficult for you to enjoy your vacation in Maine. I'm a bit surprised at this, as upon your departure your wife had called and had mentioned how much she had enjoyed the house. Also, we had a conversation in February at which time we discussed the laundry. Realizing that my house may not be a good match for your needs, I graciously gave you the option to exit your lease agreement with a full refund. I certainly understood your concern, but I was not able to offer you a laundry service other than Cottage Linens, as I do not know of any available in the area. If any were available I certainly would have offered them to you. However, I did suggest Cottage Linens. Their service is designed for the rental community. They deliver your linens upon arrival and pick up your linens upon departure. I don't usually recommend this service because the feedback I have received is that the pricing is high as it is a per room fee. So, instead, I offer linens to be laundered as an option. I am sure you do not realize that in between renters other linens need to be laundered such as bath mats, blankets, coverlets, pillow covers and shams. It's a matter of time to be able to offer every renter the same clean house and linens. In hind sight, it appears, my house was not a good fit for you. A four bedroom, three bath house takes time to clean and care for. Unfortunately, renting a house verses a condo or hotel room comes with laundry, dishes and trash disposal, all of which is outlined in the lease. I realize how difficult departure can be as I rented in this area with three children for many years. I try to provide the house that I would have wanted to rent and that my family and friends would enjoy. With good communication I try to be flexible and advise or help my tenants in any way I can. For you, for example, you asked to have the beds made. We were glad to have that done in order to make your arrival easy and enjoyable. I hope this shines some light on the hours between renters and the necessary preparation that occurs between tenants. Thank you for the feedback. I hope that I was able to address your concerns. Perhaps your review and this response will help future tenants better understand the linen situation. Beyond this, I hope that you were able to enjoy your beautiful surroundings and all that Maine has to offer.

Southern Maine Gem

  • 5 of 5

The home was everything it was advertised to be, extremely comfortable with well-appointed furnishings. Our party of six adults enjoyed the lovely views, from the deck, of the Atlantic Ocean. It was a short drive to some wonderful beaches & restaurants, and close to the attractions of Kennebunkport & Portland. A quiet & peaceful vacation spot.

very good

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a sunny Saturday, in this house which looks very much as a retreat from the traffic. Our kids and grandkids loved it so much that we barely left the place during the week, only to go to the grocery. We walked every day to the beach which we saw upon arrival , which is quiet and not deep, which is good for the kids. Some of us ran on the trail to Timber Island, some looked at the stars at night. We all enjoyed our evening BBQ. The place is clean and its four bedrooms were ok for us ,landlord answered very rapidly to our questions. Environment is quiet , with some very lovely houses. We will consider booking it another time
