About Moira

I have vacationed in York Harbor and York Beach almost every year since 1979. For years, our extended family rented a large house, first in York Harbor, then in York Beach. After spending so much time in Maine, we decided to purchase our own place.

Moira purchased this condo in 2011

Why Moira chose Southern Coast

We loved how close it is to town and to the beach. It's so easy for the kids to head back home from the beach for lunch or some quiet time. Going to watch the taffy pull at Goldenrod is something we do *every* time we are in town. It never gets old. I love watching the weddings on the Union Bluff's lawn every Friday and Saturday evening.

What makes this condo unique

We love all that there is to do in York Beach and how close it is to Ogunquit and Portsmouth, NH.

York Beach and the condo are Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd year we rent this condo and we love it. It is clean, nicely decorated, well stocked kitchen, and has all that one could really want at the beach. The condo is located in a great spot, walking distance to beach and down town as well as the Bluff Rest. My husband and I love staying here as do the grandchildren. The condo comes complete with beach buggy, chairs, umbrella and toys!! You won't be disappointed staying here.

A Summer Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The Short Sands location is ideal. This condo is so close to the most relaxing vacation ever. The beach and the charming town are steps away. The condo is immaculate and comfy- a home away from home. Cannot say enough for Moira, the owner. She quickly responds to all questions and is so helpful. We have stayed here multiple years and would not consider any other location in this summer vacation paradise.

Thanks for another great vacation.

perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

My 79 year old mother and I stayed at this condo last week and it was perfect! Moira was in contact with us prior to the week we rented, she was very easy to work with and responded to my emails almost immediately. The condo was spotless and well equipped for our stay. We brought our own beach chairs but there are a few included in the condo (they looked brand new!) and we used the beach buggy (also included) every day for the one minute walk it took to get to the beach. There are 3 other condos in the complex but it was very quiet while we were there. There are 2 parking spots for this condo (which is rare) so there was a spot for our daily visitors. My mom is already talking about renting for 2 weeks next year!
