This is one of our three homes at Goose Rocks beach we currently have listed on VRB0; see our other homes at VRBO #'s 300452, and 820059. Located at the North East end of the beach this is our three bedroom, 2 bath Expanded Cape at #320A King's Highway. Not what you typically think of for a cottage at Goose Rocks Beach this house was originally built as a year - round retirement home for my grandparents.
You enter the house through a breezeway-mudroom that abuts a two car garage. The garage is used for storage of the owners automobile and generous amounts of indoor storage for your bicycles and your beach chairs. The breezeway opens to a large, sunny eat-in kitchen with a working raised hearth brick fireplace. Enjoy the sunny kitchen window nook if you can find time to relax with a book.
Off the kitchen is the grande living-dining space......'Grande' for sheer square footage and windows.......400 square feet of hardwood and 4 picture windows let in quite a bit of sunlight, wonderful little hilltop views, and even a small sparkle of blue Atlantic Ocean and tidal creek waters.Working fireplace in living room.....small amount of free firewood out behind the garage!
This house is not furnished in the typical beach-wicker..... well worn family antiques and oriental rugs set a calming mood. Oil paintings and tick -tock clocks compliment the serenity......but do not worry...it is a wonderful house for children with much square footage for play, make-believe, and games.
Down the hardwood hall from the living area is the first floor bedroom with two twin beds. Windows on two sides, views of the oak-woods, an antique dresser.......
The master bedroom......again larger than normal at a 'cottage' is awash in lilac paint, queen size bed and more antique dressers. Windows on three sides, it is tucked into the rear of the house The master does have a connected bath with tub and shower.
Off the kitchen there is a utility room with washer and dryer and the second bath.....3/4 with a custom built tile and glass shower perfect for visiting guests and those staying in the twin bedroom.
There is a third bedroom on the second floor of the house. It has two twin beds, a bureau and two old living room chairs and a small TV....so actually makes a nice 'get away' from the people staying on the first floor. Look at our VRBO pictures to get a good idea of the whole house and it's location / setting...
We do provide all sheets and towels and the house is fully equipped so as we like to say 'All you need to bring is your suitcase and food!' Located just a two block stroll to the public access point to Goose Rocks beach...the walk is maybe 5 minutes, but the garage also comes stocked with 3 'beach bicycles' to make the short trip to the beach even more convenient.
Kennebunkport is one of Maine's prettiest villages with dozens of shops, galleries, and restaurants many in historic seaside buildings. Tennis is available for a membership fee at the Goose Rocks Beach Association right at the beach or at no charge 4 miles away at Town of Kennebunkport park on Beachwood Avenue. Three golf courses are located within 10 miles of the house. Come join us and make some Goose Rocks Beach memories to last a lifetime.

Perfectly placed, perfectly comfortable
This house was everything we were looking for in our visit back to Maine for Christmas. It's plenty big for a family of 6 or even 7 to feel comfortable. The owner is nice and generally available if anything comes up. We had something break in the bathroom while we were staying there and he provided a fix the same day without any issue.
The kitchen is fine, not gourmet but also not bad. We had my family over for Christmas dinner at the house and roasted both a leg of lamb and a chicken in the oven while cooking things on the stove-top. Never during the preparation did I feel hampered because the kitchen didn't have something I needed. There are plenty of dishes and silverware - an issue I've had at other places we've rented.
My wife described the decor as 'grandma-ish', lots of trinkets and antiques. It's nice and comfy the way grandma's house would be.
If you've never been to this area, this house is placed well. 5 minutes to downtown Kennebunkport, 10 minutes to downtown Biddeford, 20-30 minutes to Portland, and just steps from the beach. It's placed well - in fact if I ever move back to Maine this area is exactly where I'd buy.
We will definitely try to rent this property again the next time we go out to Maine.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Goose Rocks Beach and look forward to hosting you again!
Located in a Secluded Private Small Beach Community
We loved our vacation at Goose Rocks Beach. This area is at the beach but it is also in a very beautiful wooded area and it is in a very safe area. Our family from Massachusetts came to visit us while we were here. As you can see in the pictures, this home has plenty of room for a family reunion. The yard is huge. It is a very short stroll down an uncrowded street to the beach. We enjoyed the beach everyday while we were there. We also enjoyed the sites: Bush's compound is about 16 miles away, Old Ochard Amusement Park, and of course Kennebunkport. This home came well stocked. Thank you so much Bruce for all your help and suggestions.
Most relaxed vacation ever thanks to this wonderful house and owner!
Can not say enough about our stay at the house on the hill as it is known by. Our family felt like we where coming home each evening after our excursions. you really only need food and clothes as the owner supplies everything else, just look for it and it's there! Enjoyed the bikes and walked the beach at least twice a day. Bruce , (owner) is extremely nice and helpful This was our first VRBO experience and what a place! Will be back!
Family get together
We were looking for a place for a family and friend get together in May. We had guests from New Mexico, Texas, And Michigan as well as my painting group and done church folks! Can only say wonderful things about The place and Bruce. It was fully stocked, clean, great layout and made for family fun and laughter! Plus Bruce encouraged us to pick daffodils - so many varieties. We kept the cases full. And the beach was close by, as were hiking areas. Quiet and snugly. Thanks, Bruce for a wonderful get away!
Perfect Anniversary Getaway
What can I possibly say besides the fact that this house was PARADISE! I was planning a week vacation and stumbled upon this listing. Although, it was a 3 bedroom, something about this house was standing out. This place is a hidden gem and we will be returning. Bruce, I have no words, he was the best...helping with everything and made this trip fantastic. He gave me his cell phone number and I abused it. LOL I called him for recommendations and he couldn't have been more helpful and courteous. He said all you need is a suitcase and food and he meant it. Everything you could possibly need is here. Thank you so much!!! Sincerely, Shannon & Jason from RI.
Great House at Goose Rocks
Great house for couple or families; short and easy walk to one of the loveliest beaches in Maine, suitable for children. House has views of tidal river. This is a year-round home, not your typical small beach cottage. It is perched on a small hill and set back from the road. Well equipped with beach chairs and towels. Spacious living room; clean, new and updated bathrooms. The owner is very friendly and accommodating but not at all intrusive.Have stayed here twice and will again. Close to Tides Inn restaurant/bar and premier spa; short drive to great lobster establishments and Kennebunkport.
