About the property

4 Bedrooms + den, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 10

Half-Acre Ocean-Front Property with Incredible Views!

Sunrise House is situated on a large lawn overlooking Biddeford Pool’s rocky “East Point”. This bright, cheery house is an ideal spot for a family vacation. With bedrooms sleeping 10 plus a den, it is well suited for a three generation family. Watch the sun rise from the deck; look for sea glass on the rocky beach in front; walk 5 min to Big Beach where the sand stretches on for 3 miles; or cross the street to the entrance to the Audubon trail which winds through South Point Sanctuary – a bird watcher’s paradise with spectacular views of Wood Island Light House. The large deck off the main living area has uninterrupted views of the ocean from sunrise to sunset – a favorite spot to enjoy cocktails while the kids run around on the large lawn below. As the sun sets, enjoy s’mores at the private fire pit on the front lawn.

When you enter the house, you can go up a few steps to the bright open kitchen and family room (TV & DVD, wood fireplace), master bedroom (queen) and ensuite, or go down a few steps to 3 bedrooms (2 twins, queen, 2 twins and a double), a bathroom and laundry. Every bedroom has an ocean view! The bathrooms and bedrooms are all newly renovated (2014). The den (TV & DVD ) on the entrance level provides a separate room for games or watching TV. The house has a well-equipped kitchen to accommodate a large family, as well as games, books beach toys and free internet and cable, and an outdoor shower to rinse off after the beach.

Biddeford Pool is a charming area with a grocery store and lobster pound (seasonal). A great place to bike, kayak, surf, bird-watch, fish or just hang out at the beach. The variety of beaches and changing tides offer a myriad of activities, all within walking distance. If you venture a little further, either south towards Kennebunkport or north towards Portland, you’ll find great restaurants, antiquing and shopping. Something for everyone – the perfect spot for a family vacation!

With so many options of things to do, you'll be amazed how you'll just want to sit on the deck and listen to the ocean - it's the best spot to be!

Why Bethany Harper Williams chose Southern Coast

Biddeford Pool is a hidden gem - unspoiled by crowds or development. The only schedule we follow is that of the tides.

Simply relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

A magnificent time away in a lovely home that has an intimate feel. Our days began with a warm greeting from the beautiful sunrise each morning and ended with a reading, games, movies, etc. next to the warm, cozy fireplace. This home is a gem!! Even in mid-November! :) Thank you for sharing your home!

Left part of my heart on Biddeford pool

  • 5 of 5

We took our first family vacation to Maine and stayed at this property. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect location. The house was comfortable and had everything we needed, the deck was amazing, the view was second to none, and the owner was tremendously helpful and responsive. There was endless natural beauty to explore in the area, and other costal towns are nearby for shopping, restaurants, etc. We hope to make it back next year. I left part of my heart in Biddeford pool, and I envision my daughter growing up spending summer vacation here, climbing the rocks, searching for heart-shaped sea stones, riding bike along the coast, and swinging in the back yard. Pure untouched beauty every where you look. I watched my 85 yr old grandmother look off the deck in pure amazement. She sat on the deck most of the day, watching with pride as the baby and her family played together, moving her chair from one end of the deck to the other along with the sun rays. I watched my baby learn to walk in the sand and collect sea stones in her bucket. My dogs sniffed every inch of the rocky beach, played tug-of-war with seaweed, and romped happily in the yard. My husband and I woke early every morning to watch the sunrise together in the deck, and we ended the days with our feet In the sand listening to the waves along the sandy beach down the road. My extended family played ping pong tournaments in the yard, recounted stories around the firepit, shared dreams of owning a beach vacation home, and watched the baby play in the family room. I've never seen my family happier. This is truly a special place. Thank you for the wonderful memories.

Knowing we wanted to take a few day trips to Portland, OOB, Scarborough and Kennebunkport, we couldn't have asked for a better location and the view...was perfect! There is so much to enjoy right in BPL too. We loved the proximity to the sandy and rocky beaches along with sunrise strolls on the Audubon trail and you must take the Wood Island Lighthouse tour! The house was well appointed, we especially enjoyed the private yard and the amazing deck.

Relaxing beachfront getaway

  • 5 of 5

The view is extraordinary! Beautiful views from the deck. The home was very comfortable- we had six adults and three kids and felt there was more than enough room for everyone. The kitchen had everything you could need and the beds were very comfortable. We walked, enjoyed the rocky beach across the street and went looking for sand dollars at the big beach. The owners and caretaker were very attentive and kind. It was difficult to leave!

Breathtaking views and perfect home for getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect in every way! The panoramic view in the living space is amazing, could watch all day. The 4 bedrooms are very comfortable and roomy. All four have an ocean view! Two bathrooms are located conviently on both levels. There is a bonus den with TV that we didn't spend time in since our visit was short but is great space. The wraparound deck is amazing but temperatures kept us from using sadly. The owner and caretaker were great and very accommodating We will definitely return! Beautiful spot in all my travels to Maine didn't realize I was missing! Thanks for a fantastic weekend!!!
