Property description

Welcome to the 2016 rental year! We have both high season(weeks in July, one in August) and shoulder time availability (May, June, September, October). Whether you are a couple looking for a quiet weekend away, or a big family looking for a place that can accommodate up to 12 people or folks of different ages, this is the place for you. With beautiful views, ample space and beach-front access, this house can't be beat!

This classic beachfront house is located on the private side of Goose Rocks and has direct access to three miles of pristine, white sand beach. Used by family members and a stable group of long-time renters, there are only a few weeks available each year. The first floor has a kitchen and bathroom, both recently renovated, one bedroom, and an open, integrated living and dining room. This main area has three seating arrangements, an 8-10 person dining table, a picture window looking onto the beach, and a flat screen TV. The main living area opens to the outdoor deck, which has a gas grill and an umbrella-covered outdoor dining table. This is a terrific location to relax in the late afternoon. The upstairs contains a full bathroom and three bedrooms: one ‘bunk room’ with six single beds, one bedroom with two twin beds, and a master bedroom with a queen bed. The front lawn contains Adirondack chairs and a low table, perfect for morning coffee. The lawn, which is dotted with pine trees, encircles the house and completes the setting.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1986

About the owner: Our family has owned this house since the mid 1980's, when our parents went searching for a vacation home in Maine. We're a big family -- seven children -- and the house has been a formative part of our lives. We played here as children, lived and worked here together as teenagers and college students, and now bring our own families here to play in the sand and swim in the ocean.

Why the Owner Chose Goose Rocks Beach, Kennebunkport, ME, USA:
Our ongoing family tradition captures what's special about this property: upon first arriving, we almost always walk up the side lawn to get a look at the beach. Twenty-five years later, it's a favorite part of the ritual of coming back.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is located directly on the beach, allowing easy access and a relaxed, full experience of the beach, Goosefare Bay, and the open ocean, from dawn to dusk and into the night. The front lawn is an ideal location for morning coffee, afternoon reading, or evening beach viewing.
