Steps to Beach - Some weeks left for Summer 2018

Property type house

About the property

Large Beachfront House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.0+ Baths, (Sleeps 8),

If you are looking to spend your vacation on the beach, then this is your rental! Check the location - you won't get closer than this. My large Maine 'cottage' was renovated over the winter of 2013 with new wrap porch, expanded kitchen, laundry, and first floor bathroom. There are unobstructed views of the Atlantic Ocean and only a few steps away from the white sands of Gooch's Beach in Kennebunk, Maine. Ride the waves, explore the tide pools, enjoy miles of ocean front biking, walk to the playground, sign up for a whale watching trip or just relax on the beach. The property is only a short walk to the well known Kennebunkport area, where there are plenty of shops, boutiques and wonderful restaurants to enjoy.

The house has a open deck for dining and sunning, as well as a large closed porch for chillier nights. The dining room, kitchen and living room on the first floor provide vacationers with plenty of space and ocean views from all rooms. This winter, the house was upgraded to include an additional first floor bathroom, laundry, and expanded kitchen area. Wake to the sound (and the view!) of the waves from any of the 4 second floor bedrooms. The master bedroom with queen bed has a in suite half bath and connects to a second bedroom which also has its own in suite half bath. A third bedroom has two single beds and the fourth bedroom has a single bed with trundle. 'Overflow' guests will have plenty of open sleeping space and spectacular views on the third floor (which has a full size bed) or closed in porch.

Owner recently purchased the neighboring property which is also available for rent. The four bedroom house is listed as VRBO # 934787 - check it out for your next family reunion!

Why The Owner chose Kennebunk

My husband and I purchased this property in 2011 although I have been coming to the Kennebunkport area since I was a child. We love this area for all that it has to offer for activities - most especially for the pristine ocean and clean Maine air. We also love this house and are very excited to make it a comfortable spot for our family members and renters to enjoy.

Couldn’t be a more perfect beach house!

  • 5 of 5

The clubhouse was the most perfect place for a family weekend on the beach. The only thing wrong was that we all wished it had been a week.

The location is ideal and the home is cozy, fresh, well equipped, and truly wonderful in all ways.

wonderful family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We came to Maine to be together and remember the many years we had spent here with Mom/Nana. Between this house and the other one we used we had plenty of space to spend together. There was lots of flexible space, including a bedroom on the 3rd floor.


incredible location. We have long enjoyed Gooch's beach and were delighted with how close it is to this house. The views of the beach from the deck and the porch as well as from two upstairs bedrooms are lovely.

the eating space -- in the dining room as well as the porch & deck in the sunnier weather accommodated our family beautifully. It was very nice to have the small children outside so we did not worry about food spills on the dining room flooring.

Living room space -- we gathered as a family morning and evening, and the space in the house was wonderful for the whole group. At other times we were able to take advantage of cozy smaller spots.

The kitchen is well equipped.


The bathrooms are unusual -- one en suite bathroom with a shower but no sink; another ensuite bathroom with no shower. The downstairs bathroom, as the owner noted, is having a problem with water seeping under the wood floor. This necessitates special attention when using that shower.

Locks: (or the fact that there are none) I think locks on the bathroom doors as well as the bedroom doors would be helpful in having the small children not walk in unexpectedly. We made the decision to have the newlywed couple over at the other house.

Expectation on clean up: Somehow we didn't see or didn't realize that we were expected to wash, dry, fold, and put away all the linens and towels we used. With all the work of packing up in time for a 10:00 am checkout, that was difficult to do. We finally thought of asking, and the owner told us we could leave the last load in the dryer -- getting as much done as possible. We LOVE having the linens provided -- makes packing incredibly much easier, especially for those who are trying to fit everything into a carry-on -- but needing to wash everything on leaving day is tricky.

We all enjoyed the time immensely. Thank you!!

Fantastic location and views!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two fantastic weeks here. There was a great feeling of space in the Clubhouse - we were 4 for most of the holiday with an additional 4 for a long weekend - and with a dining room, sitting room and a porch we felt very comfortable. Our children (5&3) loved the proximity to the beach (really a two minute walk) so we could come home to eat and relax and go back later in the day again. The kitchen had everything that we needed so we didn't feel the need to eat out often. We loved it so much we are coming back again in 2014!
