'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.

Beautiful ocean view!
Great home with beautiful ocean views! Very comfortable living with lots of space. We had a great time!
This home was a delight for our family and especially our 85 year old mother who enjoyed day in and day out watching her children and grandchildren enjoy fun in the sun and a week of family time. This was our best Maine rental and hope to come back. Large home, spacious rooms. Great yard with great beachfront views! Thank you for sharing your home.
Clean and spacious with beautiful ocean views
Our group of 6 couples stayed at this wonderful home for 3 nights. It was perfect. Most importantly, it is steps to the water with amazing ocean views. The house was clean with hardwood floors not dirty carpets. There was plenty of dishes, glasses and cookware. The lawn is huge and we played many games of bocce there. I am a runner and to be able to run the beach and then do yoga at sunrise was amazing. Because of where the house is situated it is very quiet. It is pretty much a neighborhood with houses well spaced and not on top of each other. The only room for improvement is I wish there was a bed instead of a futon in one of the guest rooms. Having stayed at many places, I would highly recommend this home!
Wonderful vacation spot!
We rented for a week last summer and it was quite spectacular! The long, sandy beach is incredible and perfect for walks and exploring. It's in a quite location and wonderful for families. The cottage is very spacious and just as advertised.
Large lawn for badminton, soccer, croquet, sunbathing.
