Completely renovated in 2011, this cottage has hardwood floors, a fully-equipped kitchen with granite countertops & stainless steel appliances, including gas range/oven, dishwasher, & microwave, as well as a stackable washer/dryer. Each bedroom sleeps 2 people with 1 full bed & 2 twin beds. An AC unit in the livingroom keeps the entire house cool. The marble-tiled bathroom has a shower, but no tub.

About Vivian A. Tocci

I, Vivian, & my husband, Angelo, would like to welcome you to our Maine cottage that has been in my family for nearly 50 years. I grew up in York, Maine & although we live in Florida now, York is still where my heart is. Our daughter spent many summers in this cottage with my parents, so Maine is dear to her as well. We hope you will enjoy your stay in our home away from home.

Perfect summer home with a beautiful garden and mesmerizing ocean views

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our visit to York. The house was pristine, the neighbors friendly, Beth, the caretaker, was a joy, and the lobster endless. We never got to the beach in 2 weeks because we couldn't bring ourselves to move from the deck (the view is really that great). John did walk down the grassy trail to the rocky beach just down the road and gathered periwinkles for lunch! We can't wait for next year...Sally Bowdoin & John Arruda

p.s We also got to meet Vivian, the owner, who was wonderful, too.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Vivian´s and Angelo´s cottage is the perfect place to enjoy your vacation. The house is nice and tidy, kitchen and bathroom are equipped with everything you need. You receive helpful information about York and its surroundings (what to do, what to eat, etc.) and the housekeeper Beth assists in case of questions.

Highly recommended to spend some time in this beautiful cottage :-)

We loved this tiny cozy cottage with its stunning ocean views.

  • 5 of 5

Renting this home was a delightful experience from our first contact with owner Vivian to the day we left and sadly headed back home. The views are awesome, the house is absolutely immaculate, and Beth, the property manager who lives across the street, is cheerful, helpful, and always available. My husband and I have both been going to York our whole lives and are happy to find another great place to rent.

Cute and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Oh, what a view! I loved sitting out on the back deck and enjoying the view of the ocean and 2 lighthouses. The house is very comfortable. Perfect for a getaway to York.

Perfect beach house

  • 5 of 5

This as our 2nd stay, and again we were pleased. Although you have to drive to any of the 3 beaches if you are loaded down with chairs, beach bags & a cooler, it is a very short drive. The house is close enough to the water that you can hear the waves rolling in at night with the bedroom window open. Everything is as promised as far as kitchen supplies & linens. The cottage is clean & there is a property manager very close by to answer any questions or handle any issues that arise. We hope to return!

Our Maine cottage is located in beautiful York Harbor bordering up to York Beach. Relax at any of York's 3 beaches: the Harbor Beach, Long Sands & Short Sands. There are many restaurants to choose from. One of our favorites is The Goldenrod, which is a family restaurant in the heart of York Beach. York Beach also offers a variety of shops, York's Wild Kingdom-zoo & amusement park, & Ellis park with outdoor evening concerts. Nearby Ogunquit has its own beautiful beach with quaint Perkins Cove's shops & restaurants. Picturesque Kennebunkport is also worth visiting just north of Ogunquit. Heading back towards York Harbor, Foster's Downeast Clambake offers fresh seafood & fun for the whole family. For the history buff, the Olde Yorke Museum is located in the center of York Village. Further south, Kittery has an array of outlets, as well as The Kittery Trading Post, a must-see for the outdoor enthusiast. Just across the ME-NH border, is the city of Portsmouth, with historic Strawbery Banke, theaters, restaurants, & shops. There are simply so many activities & attractions to choose from, there is bound to be something for everyone!
