About Kevin O'Brien

Thank you for your interest in renting the second floor unit of our cottage for your vacation! This house is very special to us and we are excited to share it with you. For as long as I can remember, I have had a passion for turning old into new. Whether it's refinishing an antique chair, restoring a classic Chevy, or bringing an Oceanside cottage back to life, I love making things new once again!

We have spent many days enjoying the sun, sand and surf of Old Orchard Beach, and look forward to providing you with a great summer spot for the same!

Kevin O'Brien purchased this house in 2008

The pictures and information on the site are describing the house perfectly. We were a short walk close to everything, the beach, downtown and restaurants.

We especially enjoyed the cleanliness of the house and the ocean view.

We highly recommend this stay.

The cottage is absolutely perfect. Nice views of the ocean. Charming, cozy and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much. The location was perfect. A short walk to the beach. Close enough to the pier to walk but, far enough away from noise and crowds. The cottage is beautiful. Bright, clean, airy and so charming. It's like a breath of fresh air. You can't help but relax when you walk in the door. The pictures in the listing don't show how nice the views really are. We loved sitting in the kitchen or living room in the mornings drinking coffee and enjoying the sunrise and taking in the ocean breeze.

The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. We enjoyed playing board games (there is quite a collection!) in the evening after dinner.

Kevin was wonderful and made sure we had everything we needed. He was very responsive answering questions and really seemed to care that we enjoyed all Old Orchard Beach has to offer. We had a wonderful experience and hope to return.

Great Home in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Beachbreak for a weekend in Old Orchard Beach and Portland with two other couples. The duplex is nice and clean, the kitchen and bathroom are updated nicely, and the location is prefect if you don't mind a bit of a walk or driving to the boardwalk area. It really is only 4 minutes from the beach and you can see a bit of the water from the bedroom, living room and kitchen. We plan on using this property again - next time we'll even bring the kids. The location is perfect for an adult or family vacation because it's quiet yet close enough to everything to fully enjoy all that Old Orchard Beach has to offer. And having the outdoor living space, grill, and updated kitchen so you can easily enjoy meals at home in lieu of eating out all weekend was perfect for us!

Perfect End to the summer

  • 5 of 5

The home was immaculate and had lovely water views in the distance from the living room. The windows were huge and there are ton of them gave great cross breeze. A/C in the windows of the bedrooms were a nice option.

Our toddler loved the view of the train that would go by every do often. (Nothing obnoxious though) he also enjoyed the playhouse and slide in the semi-private back yard. (Shared with other unit but fenced in.)

Security deposit is high but was promptly returned the day we checked out.

Absolutely love this house and its location. We look forward to coming back and staying again.


Easy quick walk to the beach just as described. The beach was crowded not sure if this was because of the holiday weekend. It was perfect for kids to play, boogie board, and build sand castles.

The pier and amusement were a bit of a walk but worth the trip. Parking is cheap if you do these things early evening.

A relaxing beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was just as described. We were two adults and five children, and were not crowded at all - we never even opened up the sofa bed. Very short walk to a not-too-crowded beach, and the water was not too cold to swim. Waves were great - not too harsh for the little ones, yet enough to get the boogie board going for the big kids.

The kitchen is very well stocked with all utensils and implements, and the house is clean! Good selection of board games and books. Grill is clean and works great.

Wifi is a bit slow, especially when both units are using it.
