About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Smell the fresh ocean breeze and watch the sun rise over the Isle of Shoals from the roof deck of this top floor, penthouse suite located steps to North Beach in Hampton, NH.

Located in the quietest section of the Hampton beach area but within walking distance to Hampton Beach, the arcades and the nightlife. Location is perfect for avoiding the infamous Hampton beach traffic with easy access to Route 95. Portsmouth is less than 20 minutes away and both Portland and Boston can be reached in under one hour. Included with the house is an insider's guide to the best places to eat and fun activities for kids and adults.

This clean and modern beach home has an outdoor shower for washing off after the beach. Enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine as you watch the sun set over the marsh. Swim and sun in the afternoon then head to Portsmouth, only 15 minutes away, for a drink and seafood dinner or stay at home, prepare your own meal in the full kitchen and then watch the weekly Hampton fireworks from the front yard or beach.

NOTE: House has three floors. Top floor in picture with roof deck is the penthouse suite property. If you need more room see VRBO #404726, for information about the apartment which occupies the other two floors.

About Scott Whitmore

I work overseas but call Hampton my home and spend my summers in the area. I grew up in Newburyport, Massachusetts but enjoy the New Hampshire seacoast area for the many activities and easy access to both Boston and points north.

I know the area very well and have lived there with my family for several years. I know the best places to eat and can offer tips on where the locals go and what they do for fun.

Scott Whitmore purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Scott Whitmore chose Seacoast

The New Hampshire seacoast is the best place and a hidden gem and North Beach in Hampton is the place that combines both easy access to and from Route 95 with a quiet and peaceful beach so you can enjoy your vacation. It is also walking distance to Hampton beach so you can enjoy the bandstand, arcades and other attractions without getting stuck in the traffic. This house was built in 2004 by the original owner with attention to detail. It has an outdoor shower, backyard with deck and off-street parking. The yard is grass and one of the largest in the area. It is steps to the beach and has the marsh in the back. The house has two units that can be rented separately or together. The bottom unit is 4 bedrooms/1.5 baths with a full washer and dryer and the upstairs unit has a separate entrance with one bedroom, one bath, full kitchen, washer/dryer, roof deck with views of the ocean and marsh. I bought this as a retirement home to be enjoyed by my friends and family during the summer and fall. It is a large home with over 2500 square feet that is in excellent condition.

What makes this apartment unique

Steps to North Beach, Hampton's best beach that doesn't attract the large tourist crowd so you can enjoy the beach in peace. Take a walk along the seawall or ride your bike to Rye or Portsmouth along the ocean path. Watch the sun rise in the morning and see it set over the marsh in the evening. This house has one of the largest grass lawns in the area with a deck in the back to enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine. Perfect for children. North Beach is great for surfing and boogie boarding and the house comes with several boogie boards. One of the best ice cream shops in New England is only a 5 minute drive away and I will provide renters with my insider's guide to the best pizza, seafood, bagels and attractions that you won't find in any guide.

Very nice, just like the pictures, no surprises.

  • 4 of 5

Liked having the washer/dryer, full size kitchen. Nice central area for day trips from Portland, Me to Boston, MA. Could have used more fans, or AC. It was pretty warm on hot days, (above 90 a few times.)

Wonderful, clean, and quiet with everything one could need at Hampton!

  • 5 of 5

Hear the water and smell the breeze...nothing can be more relaxing! What a pleasant week we had! This penthouse was quite accommodating, everything one could need is there: dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, and washer and dryer made life easy during our stay. The pent house is laid out very well with the bedroom nicely tucked away from the road. Ample storage, and things like extra blankets are there if needed. Convenient location close to the hustle and bustle of the Casino but far enough away to enjoy hearing the water at night. Views of the ocean are an added bonus! Highly recommended.

Great place. Great stay.

  • 5 of 5

From the pictures, I expected the condo to be smaller. It exceeded expectations. Full kitchen and laundry made life easy. The deck is great for sitting, lunch, or late night cigar.

The owner is very accommodating and very prompt answering questions.

We are very satisfied with our stay!

Special vacation

  • 5 of 5

Staying back in Hampton was a real special vacation. We have recently moved from town, staying there gave us the opportunity to see family, and take our grandchildren to the beach. There's no place like Hampton and to smell the fresh salt air was an added bonus. We hope to return year after year,. Thank You Scott you are a magnificent host!

Back for the foliage and lobstah!

  • 4 of 5

Back home in New England with my girlfriend who'd actually not been to this part of the world during this time of year, so we were very excited. Got to the "loft" late and found the access just as the owner had outlined. We had already planned out a lot of our trip, so many of the sites and restaurants on the owner's list were not done, but maybe next time!!

We had an exceptional time and found the area to be nice and peaceful for our week in the New England area. Also, we found it easy to access major highways to get us to Maine, the White Mountains, Lakes Region, etc.

Overall, a very nice place for the price. We would definitely come back to this location.
