Perfect vacation spot for our family!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week in Biddeford on Hills Beach! The house was roomy and comfortable and fit our needs very well. The vistas were beautiful and we loved being so close to the island so we could walk out there at low tide to find sand dollars. We loved having the outside shower with warm water so my grandkids wouldn’t drag the sand into the house. The bedrooms were roomy and comfortable and we loved the big den upstairs to gather as a family. The kitchen could use a few upgrades but overall the house was perfect for us. We hope to be back next year!

Great home in perfect location for a fantastic vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We have been spending summers at Hills Beach on and off for 60 years. Finally found Sky Harbor this year, and couldn't be happier with the entire experience. Excellent accommodation with 5 comfortable Queen bedrooms. The two living rooms, up and down, were a surprise bonus. Kitchen is simple and functional, great for a vacation stay. Location is steps away from beach access, with two islands walking access at low tide, and many other beach activities. Access path to the pool provided excellent opportunity to paddle board in the pool through salt marshes, almost to UNE, and through the gut at slack tide to the beach. Shore fishing, caught stripped bass big enough to keep and dug steamers for lunch. Excellent bike riding to Biddeford Pool, Fortunes Rocks beach, or Kennebunkport for the ambitious.

Morning coffee and afternoons with a cool drink and good book on the front porch, or under the shady tree in the back, are great options for the ones not inclined to spend the day at the beach. Entire family gave the house fantastic reviews for the stay. We had groups coming and going throughout the week, and linen service and washer dryer are added benefit.

As the first weekly rental of the season, we did have a few occasions to contact the owners, and the response was excellent with immediate resolutions to our questions and concerns. Looking forward to the next time we can book Sky Harbor.

This is a beautiful home in a quiet, peaceful location!

  • 5 of 5

Our son and his family, my daughter and her family, and my husband and I spent a week here at this beautiful home. It was just right for our family reunion. There was ample space for everyone. We loved the kitchen, dining /living room looking out onto the water, the spacious upstairs living room with its beautiful views and magnificent fireplace, the five bedrooms, the two bathrooms, the porch, etc. It was especially helpful to have the washer and dryer in the basement with four children ages 2 - 6. The outdoor shower was used every day! Our grandchildren loved having the water so accessible - they loved playing in the water, digging in the sand, and exploring the rocks with each other. They learned quite a bit about the tides. Kayaking was a favorite activity as was walking on the sandbar. The ocean breezes were wonderful - no humidity! We met the owner who was there for a couple of days - such a nice person. We appreciated the linen service very much. It was a wonderful experience - we will have awesome pictures and fond memories. Our vacation was peaceful and beautiful. I would love to go back! ( I found the church bells so lovely!) We truly enjoyed our stay there!

This rental has it all for family enjoyment.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our whole family thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay in Sky Harbor Drive ,Biddeford. Maine during July 1-8, 2017. The house was ideally situated close to the beach and adjoining biking roads and nearby attractions. The rooms and house contents were clean and well equipped. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The linen service was very welcome and prompt. We would recommend this rental to anyone.
