We rented this home for 2 weeks and loved every minute of it. It worked well with our children. We would definitely like to return. The cottage is clean, well decorated, cozy and comfortable. The bathrooms and kitchen are recently renovated and have everything you need. The bedrooms are all cozy and comfortable. We enjoyed the ocean views from nearly every room and spent lots of time in the yard and deck. The cottage is a great location - easily walkable to Mother's Beach (great for kids) and Gooch's Beach and a nice distance to run or bike ride into town. Loved hearing the ocean waves at night.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time ever, the place is incredible directly on the ocean and only a short walk to the many beaches and park. A short drive into town to pick up your morning coffee, grab an ice cream or take a walk at night. The place has it all, bbq, washer, dryer, dishwasher. The views were incredible and the ocean waves made the place that much better. The place is very modern while still maintaining it's rustic charm. We would definitely return. Everything about our stay was perfect. The kids loved it too.

We would not have changed a thing!

  • 5 of 5

We would not have changed a thing about it. Beautiful, cozy home; perfect location between two beaches; very well-equipped kitchen; great BBQ cooker on deck, backyard/deck with the ocean directly across the street in the front.

Perfect location for a run into Kennebunkport but far enough away that you aren't in the middle of it all. Kayaking, whale watching, sailing, you name it, are all within a short drive.

Dishwasher made clean up a breeze and washing machine/dryer were great to have on hand. Also the beach chairs were wonderful and easy to carry to the beach.

We can't wait to come back!

Perfect Maine Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this great property with our 3 year old girl and could not have been happier. The house is perfect for a small family and provides old cottage charm with some nice modern updates. The location is absolutely perfect located between Mother's Beach (great beach playground) and Gooch's Beach. Plenty of ocean views from every room and the cool ocean breezes can't be beat. We are absolutely going to book this property again next year!!

Perfect oceanside experience

  • 5 of 5

WOW. Everything about this place is exactly what you would want from an authentic Maine oceanside vacation. This house is the 'real deal' cozy New England cottage, recently renovated with all the modern conveniences and appliances. Beautifully decorated, in a comfy, relaxed style. Lots of room to play and relax, and the ocean is right across the street, so the sounds and smells of the ocean are an integral part of the experience. I was there with my wife and two teenage sons and we completely fell in love with the place. Beautiful, easy walks to several sandy beaches, close to the charms of Kennebunkport, restaurants, shopping and lots of activities. Easy to get to, yet it feels a long, long way from work and city life.

Kennebunk Beach, Southern Coast, Maine, USA (Mere minutes from Kennebunkport; 45 minutes from Portland, Maine; 1.5 hours+ from Boston)

This beautiful beach home is only steps from the beach, Ocean views and the sound of the waves are heard. Minutes to Kennebunkport, golf, tennis, and excellent restaurants. We've found you can do as much or as little as you would like from sitting on the wrap around deck and enjoying the view to outlet shopping in either Freeport, ME or Kittery, NH. Whale watching or casually browsing through the beautiful boutiques in Kennebunkport. There really is something for everyone!
