About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, Waterfront

Luxury Waterfront Year Round House with water on 3 sides. 4,250 sq foot, 3 level, 4 Bedroom, 4.5 Bath 1900's 'Summer Cottage.' 4 Fireplaces including 3 Gas Fireplaces and one Electric. Adults only. Maximum 8 adults.

Stunning location with water on 3 sides. Watch the yachts come and go down the Kennebunk River from our 3 Season Wrap around porch. Or enjoy the views from our year round sunset - sun porch. Easy walk to Dock Square Shops or to stunning and quiet Colony Beach (both less than half a mile).

Top End Appliances including Washer and Dryer. Computer with Wi-Fi and Internet Access. Gas Fireplaces.

Second level Master Suite with King Bed Gas Fireplace and AC. 3rd Floor Master Suite with private bath, King Bed and Electric Fireplace and AC. 2 more bedrooms on second level with a queen bed each and AC.

Why do we charge more for more guests some ask... because we do not think it fair that 4 people should have to pay the same as 6 or 8 people. Plus we like only 2 to 6 guests as there is far less wear and tear on the house.

About Greg Burke

My wife and I purchased this In-town waterfront home in 2010. We redecorated the entire house and totally renovated the kitchen area and added a NEW 2nd Master Suite. Be one of the few that gets to stay in this outstanding multi million dollar home with water on 3 sides… call us now.

Greg Burke purchased this house in 2010

Why Greg Burke chose Southern Coast

We moved to the Kennebunks in the early 1990’s to raise our 2 children in this idyllic seaside community. We lived on Ocean Ave our first couple of years in town and currently live across the river in Kennebunk. This is an outstandingly beautiful area with great shops, restaurants, beaches, boating… This is definitely NOT your normal 'rental', it is a luxury home for mature adults only to enjoy and treat with the respect it deserves.

What makes this house unique

Water on 3-sides. 4 Fireplaces. You can sit on the sun-porch and watch the boats come and go on the River. Or on the back patio you can be on a secluded tidal cove and enjoy our Gas BBQ Grill and Outdoor Gas Fire Pit. An easy .4 mile walk to Dock Square to the north with its unique shops and restaurants or .5 miles to a quiet sandy beach to your south.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“A wonderful week at 82 Ocean, and our first trip to Maine. We visited lighthouses, sailed on the Pineapple Ketch, toured the Seashore Trolley Museum, enjoyed excellent dining at Mabel’s Lobster Claw, Bandaloop, lobster rolls from The Clam Shack. We even found time to build a lighthouses of Maine puzzle. We love 82 Ocean, the perfect location with spectacular views, great amenities, and the best hospitality.”

Perfect for a family excursion

  • 5 of 5

We have rented homes for an 11 person family (5 grandkids) in Provence, Tuscany and the US. this house worked the best. Kennebunkport is a wonderful village to visit in the summer. Hosts Greg and Heather Burke and top flight and highly professional.

Lovely Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a bright, cheerful home with a nice variety of living spaces both inside and out. We had four couples stay at 82 Ocean and never felt crowded. There are plenty of amenities and the location is great. You can walk into town or over to Walker Point. It is on a busy road, but we enjoyed people watching from the glorious front porch and at night it is pretty quiet. The water views across the street and at high tide in the back are very nice, however there is no water access. We had kayak envy watching others paddle by, but it didn't put a damper on our stay.

Best Vacation Ever - Cleanest - Coolest House Ever

  • 5 of 5

Wow! It is awesome when you check into a house it is even nicer than the photos! Mornings on the back patio on the quiet cove, evenings on the front porch watching the boats ply the river. Nights around the gas fire pit on the patio. Gourmet kitchen. The owners take exceptional pride and care and we have never stayed in a cleaner house! And Kennebunkport is such a cool town. So many great restaurants, beaches, boat tours that you can walk to from 82ocean... we will be back!

Great Location!!

I stayed at 82 Ocean with a group of friends for a long weekend. This house has all the amenities you will need. The house is clean and tidy. Beautiful spacious home. The owners are easy to work with. They are organized and committed to excellence. I was very very happy with the rental.

A family reunion in HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5

We all had such a lovely time in your beautiful home. We had no idea how wonderful it would be to just sit behind the house and watch the sun come up (Gus and I are very early risers) or sit on the sun porch and watch the sun go down. We were mesmerized by the tidal river as well, never having experienced that before. The house provided all kinds of areas to be together and to be alone if and when desired.

We cooked almost all of our meals at home, although we enjoyed a lobster/shrimp feast at Mabel's, and fresh fish/cooked lobsters from Port Lobster. Our best meal out was at The Village Tavern in West Kennebunk- superb service and creative and delicious meals.

When we needed more towels, the "towel fairy" came and dropped off several more and Greg just wrote to let me know they are providing double the original number of towels for each room. That's responsive hosting!

Greg and Heather, you've done such beautiful work to keep the house a prize! Thanks from the 11 of us.

Fabulous Waterfront home and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

WE planned a small family reunion with 9 family members and we couldn't have been happier with the location of the home, the home itself, as well as the thoughtful hosts. None of the party members had ever been to Kennebunkport before and we had hoped we had chosen a great location. It was perfect ! The house was spacious enough that no one felt crowded and the outdoor patio area in the back was the perfect location to hang out and eat our Lobster that we picked up at Port Lobster - just a 5 min walk.The downtown was easily walkable as well - with many great restaurants to chose from.

The Front screened in deck area was another favorite hangout of ours and we enjoyed watching the boats come in and dock. All the bedrooms were lovely - not a bad one in the house!

If /when we come back to beautiful Kennubunkport again - this is the house for us!!!
