About Andrea

We are a family of 3 who has been vacationing in Kennebunk our whole lives, we love the area and were excited for the chance to own. We know you will love it as well and will enjoy staying with us year after year.

Andrea purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Andrea chose Southern Coast

Parson's beach is my all time favorite beach and love that we are now a short walk away! I have been going to this beach since I was a child and now I love to bring my own children there.

What makes this cottage unique

Family atmosphere, quiet, comfortable, safe and friendly! Everything you love about Maine.

Kennebunk Cottage, Walk to Beach, Sleeps 8
average rating of 4.8 based on 5 reviews

Great comfortable value, prime location

  • 5 of 5

My family of two adults and two kids, ages 4 and 6, stayed here for a long weekend to attend a friend's wedding in Kennebunkport. The cottage was just as advertised, and there is also a great kids' play area - sand pit and play structure, as well as basketball hoop - in the central area. There is also a picnic table out back by the stream that we ate most meals at; breakfasts though were out front in the adirondacks in the bright sun. The location was excellent, with Parsons beach just down the road - like others, we drove instead of walked simply because we had kids (and when we were there, parking was fine) but the walk looked quite reasonable and goes along a very pretty tree-lined street alongside a horse farm. Kennebunk and Kennebunkport are very close indeed, and this was the best price we found for this area and had everything we needed. What was not clear from the property description and pics is that this is part of a group of vacation rental cottages - most now individually owned as condos, but still rented via a central house/office. That meant that - although less private - when we faced an issue - from needing an iron, to facing a clogged toilet (and no plunger) - there was on-site help available. It also meant the great play area was there for the kids to delight in. The road noise from Route 9 can be appreciable - the cottages are really right next to the road - but there's also a sweet stream out back and the frogs' chorus was beautiful, as was the morning birdsong. The kitchen is small but it's a cottage so that goes with the territory - and the nearby towns have an *abundance* of restaurants to complement your home cooking. All in all, great value, comfortable beds, great location. We would come here again.

girlfriends get away

  • 4 of 5

Looking for a beach spot for our annual get together. The cottage is exactly as depicted. Comfortable, beach cottage feel. One of the best on the property in my opinion. Used the grill one night and it was adequate but well worn. The on site pool was average and out by the road. The walk to the beach is a bit of a challenge if you are bringing chairs, coolers. If you take your car down to the beach before 8am you can claim a spot for free. Otherwise parking is very limited. Would rent again for a long weekend or 4-5 day getaway.

clean and practical cottage

  • 5 of 5

I walked into the cottage on a rainy 60 degree day and was horrified that there was no heat. I thought we were going to freeze. After I found the electric heaters, it heated up very quickly and was quite cozy. We ended up having a perfect weekend at the cottage. We had another couple and a friend stay with us for a night and the space was very practical and comfortable.You can definitely tell that the cottage was designed for the summer, but it was perfect for our Columbus day weekend getaway. The location was also ideal. It's across the street from Parson's beach and it's 5 minutes from Kennebunk and Kennebunkport. There also was cable for the Patriots game. We went to Pedro's and had a blast and saw a zombie walk in Kennebunk. I definitely would consider renting this cottage again. It felt like we were paying a reasonable price in an exclusive area.

Enjoyable Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cottage from June 20 - 24, 2012. It was well maintained and the description and pictures are accurate. The couch was very comfortable and so were the beds. We picked this place because it had two bedrooms and was very reasonably priced. Parsons Beach was nice to visit, although we drove down instead of walking. I enjoyed the hot tub and swimming pool since the weather was in the 90's during our visit. Would love to have stayed longer.

Cozy, clean and close to everything you could want!

  • 5 of 5

We had great weather over Memorial Day weekend and really took advantage of it. The walk to beautiful Parsons Beach is super short, but really scenic as you walk up the access lane surrounded by a horse farm and beautiful grounds.

Scenic and fun Kennebunkport is about a 5 minute drive, and there is always plenty of parking (I recommend the honor parking) so we ate dinner and shopped each evening, much to my wife's delight and my dismay.

The cottage was really well appointed and both bedrooms were really large and comfortable with a nice kitchen and living room between them.

You get a lot for the money with this place and I can not recommend it enough.
