About Kristen

Jeff and Kristen live with their four daughters in the suburbs of Boston. We have roots in Massachusetts and Maine. Jeff graduated from US Naval Academy so I guess you could say he has had a love of the ocean for a long time!

Kristen purchased this house in 2012

Why Kristen chose Kennebunk

The southern coast of Maine has been part of our life since we can remember! We have such fond memories of watching the sunrise with our siblings and cousins and shucking clams for my grandmother to make homemade clam chowder. The long days spent on the beach were always followed by cookouts, tag, and catching fireflies. We honestly don't think we could be happy without being near the ocean. Something about it gives us energy and peace! We purchased this house as an eventual retirement home. It is a dream come true for us to have a home near the beach in Kennebunk:)

What makes this house unique

This house made the most sense for us because it has lots of bedrooms and bathrooms and a room over the garage that we will eventually refinish for even more company! We love spending time with family and friends at the beach, and we wanted a place that had the space for them to stay with us.

Car: recommended

A summer vacation in Kennebunkport speaks for itself! This rental is within walking distance to 'The Port' and Kennebunk Beach (Mother's Beach). Enjoy the sun, surf, collecting sea shells and when you tire of that (ever?), hit the Port for some great shopping and restaurants. Don't leave without having some lobster and steamers!

Spacious an Clean

  • 5 of 5

It's a beautiful house within walking distance of the beach and downtown Kennebunkport. There's a well equipped kitchen and plenty of beds for a family (or as in our case, shared family from different states) My only complaints would be the necessity to rent towels or pack them (this makes it difficult for those who fly and don't drive with the family for a week at the beach and towel rental was around $300 for the 3 days we were there), the road noise when sitting out and enjoying the beautiful backyard (with fire pit!) and it would have been nice to have a starter roll of toilet paper in each bathroom(discovered too late - haha), and maybe some little soaps in the bathrooms. Kristen was very easy to communicate with, cooperated in getting us into the house to coordinate with flights, and again, the house is cozy yet spacious and very clean and for those who come for a beach stay, the parking tags that come with the rental are worth quite a bit and a very nice touch! (There are also games like a ping pong table in the garage, videos, books, and 3 TVs with cable for those who may have a rainy day or two.) I definitely recommend anyone considering it to stay here.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your positive review and suggestions! I am sorry there wasn't toilet paper available as it is expected that our housekeeper refill all bathrooms during the cleaning. I will be sure to follow up. We are considering offering a more affordable option of renting linens through us directly. Again, thank you so much for your review! Kristen

Excellent Vacation Space For Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 adults and 6 children thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Just Landed. The house is well-maintained with plenty of space, and so convenient to the beach and to Kennebunk/Kennebunkport. Highly recommended.

Perfect for large group

  • 5 of 5

This is a darling cottage with enough space to spread out. I've rented dozens of houses over the years and what makes this stand out is all of the extras supplied in the house: bikes, beach chairs, fun games in the garage, and for the yard, logs for fire pit and all kinds of kitchen supplies...plus much more! We had plenty of room for 8. One big drawback, but standard for the area I noticed, is having to bring or rent the linens. It added another $300+ !

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best house we have ever rented as a family for vacation.

It had everything we needed and more! Super clean and beautifully decorated!

Perfect location, close enough to the beach and the town.

And, we had fabulous weather too!

We had an opportunity to meet the owner too! What a great guy and so hospitable!

We all were so sad to leave!
