Perfect Bach house for young kids and pets

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a family vacation home that would be large enough to accommodate family & friends. We found this property on VRBO and feel so lucky that we did. The house is very large so even when we had quests it did not feel like everyone was on top of one another. The home is easily walkable to the beach and the town (and zoo).

With all the attractions are close, the property is set back on a very large lot so you hear no noise at night and the kids can have plenty of room to play baseball or soccer.

The home is clean and the kitchen is large which was very important since we didn't want to eat out for every meal. In fact, there is a great BBQ that can be used. The furnishings are appropriate for a rental home that allows children & pets. The last thing we wanted was to stress over every movement the kids made while in the house. Everyone was able to relax.

The owners are very friendly and responsive. One of the nights we were there the microwave stopped working and we informed the owners.....they replaced the microwave the next day.

Overall a great experience and the kids are already asking to go back. We would certainly rent this property again.

Room for the entire family and more!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this property for the past two years and we are as comfortable there as in our own home. The house is set back far from the street so as to provide privacy yet you're a short walk away to everything. There's even a great little coffee shop around the corner. It's a pet-friendly rental so I was able to bring my dogs and they love the beach and the large yard at the house. With three teenagers and their three friends, we still had plenty of room. There's a first floor bedroom with a neighboring bath and laundry, ideal for the grandparents. We used the kitchen and the outdoor grill daily which cut down on meal expenses. We love the beach & the kids still enjoy all the activities at York but they really loved taking a zipline tour in nearby Kittery and they offer an aerial obstacle course too. It's only a 10-15 minute drive and of course, there's outlet shopping and a large grocery store. We also went kayaking in nearby York Harbor.

The owner is close by and very attentive - I texted her and she answered right away. Couldn't ask for better service. I would recommend this rental to all; there's something for everyone!

Loved our vacation at Norton Farm!!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our second vacation at Norton Farm and hope to be back for many more. The location can't be beat, and we only had to use our cars to visit the Kittery outlets during the week. So close to Short Sands, the Animal Zoo and Rides and downtown stores. Our kids love coming here too with the Goldenrod and penny candy only minutes away. The beach is wonderful with a great playground, arcade and food all walking distance. The owners are friendly and helpful, and they even had a pony for the kids to pet!! Tons of room, cool firepit for nights and a gas grill. What more do you need ... highly recommended. :).
