About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7

This beautiful 2-story, expanded-cape style home is located on quiet, family friendly Grove Street and is just a short walk to the beach, community house, tennis courts and playground. This home features hardwood floors and a newly renovated kitchen which opens to the dining room and living room. Down the hall is a separate family room w/ flat screen TV, DVD player and closet full of movies, games & toys. Also on this floor is a bedroom w/ double bed and a full bath w/ tub. The new kitchen includes a dishwasher, full-size refrigerator, microwave, disposal, coffee maker and toaster. On the second floor is the master bedroom w/ queen bed, a full bath and a bedroom w/ 3 twins and 2 trundles. The private, fenced in back yard has both gas and charcoal grills, a picnic table, comfortable lawn furniture and a fire pit. We also have a private outdoor shower and a washer and dryer located in the 1-car garage. We provide beach chairs, beach toys and a wagon & beach buggy, which are great for transporting everything you need for a successful day at the beach. We also have a vintage lemonade stand for our more entrepreneurial guests.

Over a mile long, Drakes Island has a beautiful, wide, sandy-white beach and tidal pools at low tide. It's perfect for families and children of all ages. It is flanked by a jetty at the southern end and the Little River and Nature Reserve at Laudholm at the northern end and is great for walking and running.
Drakes Island is close to all kinds of activities, including mini-golf, tennis, hiking, golf and fishing. The local villages of Wells, Kennebunkport and Ogunquit have many beaches, restaurants, antique stores and movie theaters and are wonderful for dining, shopping and sightseeing.
Drakes Island is approx. 10 min from I95 and the Wells Transportation Center (trains to Boston). It is approx 30 min drive to Portland and the Portland Int'l Jetport. Logan Airport and the city of Boston are approx. 90 min. (80 miles) away.
