About Anita French

We live just over the border in New Hampshire but love to play at York Beach. We formed Periwinkle Properties LLC when we purchased a collection of three houses in the spring of 2012 and added one more in January 2015 right next door. Periwinkle combines our interest in fixing up older houses with time at the beach. 'Hidden Treasure', 'Breakwater', 'High Tide' and 'Windswept' are all part of Periwinkle and available for rent individually or as a package. See the listing numbers above.

Anita French purchased this house in 2012

Why Anita French chose Southern Coast

This house was renovated top to bottom in the winter of 2013. It is comfortable any time of year and is located conveniently near the Nubble Light House and Short Sands beach.

Great Place to stay in York

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in York. House was very clean and had all the amenities you would need (except air conditioning). My parents came with us and having a bedroom and bathroom on the first floor was a necessity as neither can walk a flight of stairs. Close to Short Sands Beach and York Beach downtown area. We loved hanging out on the porch and talking to the people who passed by (as the road seems to be the main road to get to downtown). We took two of our dogs and they loved it too.

My family and I had a wonderful week at High Tide. Everything you need and plenty of room.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was much bigger than the pictures show. The bedrooms had plenty of room and great closet and bureau space. Every room had a fan and plenty of blankets for cold nights too. The kitchen was well stocked and the dining room table was huge. My favorite part was the wrap around porch. It had many areas to sit and eat with a great view. Anita has beautiful quilts hanging all through the house. The house was walking distance to the beach and town. It was a wonderful week for my whole family.
