About the property

A perfect beach getaway home for the whole family.

This is a big house a block from the beach, a perfect getaway perfect for the whole family. The house was at one point a duplex so there is lots of space.

There are three bedrooms, two living rooms, a full kitchen, a kitchenette upstairs, a patio perfect for a family cookout, and a balcony perfect for having cup of coffee and watching the sun rise.

The house offers the ability to bring the whole extended family, or have guests, while providing some privacy should you desire it.

Our house is furnished with the basic necessities of beach life; however, you will need to bring a few things.

There is ample sleeping space for the whole family, the house can accommodate up to twelve comfortably. We have blankets and pillows for all the beds, but you should bring linens for any beds you choose to use.

In the downstairs bedroom - one queen sized bed

In the upstairs family bedroom - one full sized bed and two twin beds

In the upstairs captains quarters - one full sized bed

Upstairs - one queen sized futon

Downstairs - one queen sized pull out sleeper sofa - in the downstairs bedroom closet, you will find comforters and such for the sofa sleeper in the living room.

You will also want to provide your own bath and beach towels. There is a washer/dryer located upstairs to conveniently keep up on your daily laundry - if necessary.

In the bathrooms and kitchen, we begin the season with popular paper and cleaning products. We ask that you replace what you use for the next guest. On the deck, there are 2 grills for cooking (one is gas and one is charcoal). If you want to use the charcoal grill, you will need to bring some charcoal. Additionally, in the sand room, there are a few beach chairs, although you may wish to pack some additional seating for the beach.

And that’s it!! The house has all of the pots/pan, dishes/silverware, furniture, televisions and radios to make your stay comfortable. There is an iPod docking station should you wish to bring your own music and an outdoor shower to help rinse off the sand from the beach.

Summer fun!

  • 5 of 5

This place works well for my family as it is roomy and so close to the beach! There are many things to see and do in Old Orchard Beach and surrounding communities. We even found sand dollars this year!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Not far from the beach and a short walk to stores/town. We enjoyed the location and the outside porch/deck was perfect for family meals, games and evening quiet time. Great for grandparents downstairs and the rest of the family upstairs. Only one small tv located in the living room. You need to bring your own bedding. Very important...bring sheets and blankets and pillows. Beds aren't very big...I'm used to a King for 2 of us though. Even so, we had a great stay and would stay here again.

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great for us! We had twelve of us and there was a huge table we could sit around together as well as plenty of sleeping quarters. It was well stocked with dishes and cooking supplies. The best part was the closeness to the ocean! I recommend it to anyone!

This beach house rental is perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This rental place is perfect! It is conveniently located within walking distances to a lot of places. Beach is very short walk right at the end of the street! The house has plenty of sleeping areas for everyone, with a full bathroom on the bottom floor, a bathroom with shower stall on the top floor, a clothes washer and dryer, and automatic dishwasher. There are kitchen areas with refrigerators/freezers on both levels. Electric stove top/oven to use too if one wants to cook while on vacation. There are plenty of pots and pans and a variety of utensils to use as well. There is a nice large patio area out front to sit outside and two grills to use for cooking. The top floor has a great wraparound porch too where you can sit and enjoy the fresh air. The dining area on the first level has a large table that can seat 8 to 10 people. There are two decent size TVs, one on each level, too with WiFi service as well...huge plus having WiFi! The place is clean with new appliances that will make your stay comfortable. Rent this won't be disappointed! We rented this place at the beginning of June and can't wait to come back!

A Perfect Fit...

  • 5 of 5

This house was a perfect fit for my family. In terms of location, as well as size, we were well accommodated. The house is close enough to be able to take a short walk and engage in activities at or around the pier, yet far enough away to afford the family quiet and privacy. The owners are genuinely great, accommodating, gracious hosts, and the house was clean and comfortable. Further, the house was large enough to comfortably settle my extended family, and intermittent guests, all of which commented on what an exceptional time they had. I would definitely request to rent this house again in the future. Thank you for having us- best to all.
