Property description

'229 Island Beach Road' is a 1950's architecturally designed oceanfront house located on a beautiful two mile stretch of beach, not found anywhere else in Southern Maine. You will relish beach walking to the inlet in the wildlife preserve, surfing and swimming, sipping morning coffee on the oceanfront porch and evening cocktails on the other; kayaking and bird-watching, and amazing sunrises and sunsets. Situated on a dead-end street, your family will enjoy bicycling, rollerblading, and a morning run through the nearby path to Laudhom Farms. Drake's Island is family friendly with a community house, playground, tennis, and basketball courts. Although Drake's Island is totally non-commercial, you will find convenient grocery stores, shopping, recreational attractions, and restaurants within an easy 5-15 minute drive.

Our spacious beach house boasts a huge living room overlooking the ocean, large dining area, well-equipped kitchen, oceanside porch and front porch. This well-designed and soundproof house sleeps twelve with three full baths. We offer two master suites, each located at opposite ends of the house, as well as four comfortable bedrooms, including a double bedroom, queen/twin bedroom and two bedrooms with twin beds. Off-street parking is available for four cars. The extensive lawns are perfect for croquet, badminton, soccer, and volleyball.

Boston Airport is 90 minutes away. Portland Airport is 40 min away. Manchester is a 90 minute drive. Less than 5 minutes to Wells train station and Maine Turnpike.

Please no smoking, pets or grilling on the porches. Must be 25 to rent. Must bring own sheets/towels
