Before reading about our property we want to let you all know we have added 3 more units to VRBO! Please take a look at them if this one is all booked. It is 3 units 2 beds each and if booking on the same week can accommodate a very large group. The listing #'s are 800981, 800982, 800984. It is super close to the Center. Now back to this property.

Welcome to our Beach House! Let us give you a tour. First you will pull into the driveway where you can fit 3 cars comfortably, with extra parking on the side of the house and more on the street parking. As you enter through the front entrance you will be greeted with a bright and sunny enclosed porch where you will be able to sit comfortably having a morning cup of coffee while you plan your day. This is also a great spot to drop your beach toys and shoes. Next you will enter into the air conditioned living room where you will find comfortable couches and a large flat screen t.v. with a satellite dish and DVD player. We also have a nice selection of DVDs to choose from. From the living room you can see into the kitchen which has an open concept eating area, with a large table to accommodate a large family. The kitchen features and electric stove, full size refrigerator, plenty of counter space, 2 coffee pots, one which is a keurig, cabinets full of pots, pans, dishes, everything you will need to keep your vacation hassle free. As you work your way towards the backyard, you will find the newly remodeled full bathroom, then the enclosed back porch where there is a full sized washer and dryer, a trundle bed that sleeps 2, a closet filled with board games for some quality family bonding time. Next we will take you upstairs to the 4 bedrooms, the master bedroom has a queen sized bed and a flat screen TV, the second bedroom has a full size bed, the 3rd bedroom has 2 twin beds and the fourth bedroom has a trundle bed. Also on the second floor is a half bath. Now let’s take you to the best part of the home, the backyard, the reason you will want to come back year after year. The fenced in backyard, has a beautiful built in pool, that you will not have to share with your neighbors. It is equipped with a full sized table with umbrella and plenty of seating to be comfortable. We also provide lawn chairs to recline and relax. You get to choose everyday if you want to go to the beach or you want to hang at your own poolside where you can get the blender going and enjoy a barbecue on the gas grill. The kids will love swimming while you cook burgers on the grill. We have a covered gazebo for those that need limited time in the sun. When you head to the beach you will find one of the cleanest, beautiful 7 miles of pristine beaches. It is a short distance from the house. It’s about a half mile. When you are ready to hit the road for adventure you will find The Pier, where you can walkout over the water and look all the way down the 7 miles of pristine beaches. There is an old fashioned amusement park with an arcade. You will love the rides, and games. You can eat cotton candy, fried dough, pizza, ice cream, or anything that strikes your fancy. Don’t forget our famous lobster rolls and fried clams. Maine is known for having the best lobster and seafood in the world. If you are looking for adventure we have many attractions nearby, such as Monkey Trunks, where you can swing from the ropes, and climb to the top of the rope jungle, and even zip line. There is also mini golf, batting cages, kayaking, trails to bike on, and a couple water parks just down the road. If you want to take a 20 minute ride, you can head to Portland, and experience whale watching, fishing charters, some of the best restaurants, and shopping galore! You can also venture out to experience some of our most beautiful light houses. Take a ferry out of Portland Harbor to experience the many islands surrounding the coast. If you are a shopper we are centrally located between the Kittery Outlets and Freeport Outlets including the original LL Beans Flagship store. If you really want some nostalgia visit the drive in theatre, just a few miles from the home.

About Karen Jackson and Janet Peters

We are a couple that met in our second half of our life, which we like to think is the better half. We are both in our mid 40's and together share 3 children, 2 boys and 1 girl. And we have the best little doggie named Nikki, who you will most likely meet upon check in. We live locally in Scarborough and enjoy traveling ourselves, and know what needs to be in the accommodations to keep people coming back.

Adorable home, great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The house was great...lots of room for a big family. The pool was a big favorite, especially after the beach. The location was perfect, close to everything we wanted to do. The owners were a pleasure when we had any questions before we went. If we go back, would love to stay there again.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything that I expected. It was close enough to walk to the beach and pier but far enough away that we could truly relax and unwind. The bedrooms were great. Everyone had their own space which was key. There was plenty of room in the living room and dining room for everyone to relax.

The backyard with the pool was my favorite spot and honestly was the main reason I rented the house. We typically walked to the beach or pier every day but a few the kids just wanted to play in the pool. It was very peaceful.

I would highly recommend this house. We were mid week and the kids were already asking to come back next year.

Thank you Karen and Janet for answering all my questions before the trip as well as being extremely responsive to my questions during the week.

Amazing Beach Home with everything a vacationer could want or need

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row that we have rented the beach house and we could not be happier. The home has everything that a vacationer could want or need. The beach is a short walk away and the pool is a few steps away. The home is so inviting and cozy and my family fully enjoyed every minute of our stay. This is the place to be if you are looking in OOB Maine for a vacation home. You will not be disappointed.

Wonderful Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation! We spent the first part of each day at the beach, and then spent the last part of the day hanging out in the back and swimming in the pool. The floats in the pool were a big hit with the kids! The house fit us perfectly. We had a lovely time!

Great family vacation! Location was awesome, and so was the pool!!

  • 4 of 5

We travel to OOB every year in early September as a large family with lots of kiddos. In previous years, we always rented hotel rooms. As our family grew, we outgrew hotel rooms. We came across this house in our recent search for lodging for our last vacation to OOB. The location was great. It was about a 10 minute walk (approx 1 mile) to the beach. The kids rode their scooters on the sidewalks while the adults lugged all of the beach accessories. It didn't seem too far at all. The beach was beautiful. We did walk to the pier one night, but it was quite a hike. By the end of the evening, we were too tired to walk back and ended up catching a bus home. It dropped us off right out front of the house. There was a pharmacy about a 5 minute drive away. We walked to Fielder's Choice every night for some delicious ice cream. It was so close!

The house had lots of room to accommodate our large family. It was clean, and cutely decorated for an older home. There was a front porch that was awesome to relax on after the kids went to bed. However, the house across the street had a party every single night we were there, so it was a bit noisy. Not an issue though.

The pool in the back yard was our favorite part! The water was chilly, but that didn't stop the kids from enjoying it all day, every day. There were fun pool toys, and tons of seating! The grill was clean.

The kitchen, although small, was well stocked with dishes and cookware. The living room had tons of seating and the TV had every channel you could think of.

The back sun room was great to gather and play games. The kids enjoyed spending time together in this room, "away from the adults". The washer and dryer was a huge plus!!

We had one issue with a spot light out back and the owners were very responsive!

If you do rent this property, which I highly recommend, be sure to bring hand soap, toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent... Although we are a large family, so we use more than the average family. Luckily there is a grocery store just a few minutes away to grab these items.

One of the BEST vacation rentals ever - great combination of everything one wants in a vacation

  • 5 of 5

The vacation property was clean, had tons of space for large family and contained everything that one needs to create amazing memories with family and friends. The home was within walking distance to the beach and downtown but far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet. The outside patio and pool provided hours of fun for all. The beach/pool combination was by far the best experience of all. The home contains a fully stocked kitchen and beds for 10 plus room for more. The washer and dryer was a huge plus for wet beach towels. We had everything that we needed and created tons of AMAZING memories -Thank You for one of our BEST vacations. We look forward to renting again.
