About Kevin O'Brien

Thank you for your interest in renting the first 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! I live in Conway, New Hampshire with my wife Susie and our two young sons. 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 cottage in 2008

Perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to stay in Portland and decided to check HomeAway for other options. When we saw this place for the same price (or less!) than a hotel in Portland, we decided to give it a try. It turns out Old Orchard Beach is a much better vacation spot than Portland and this home is a gem among the homes near the beach. It is modern, comfortable, and an easy walk to the beach and great seafood restaurants. We loved our time in this home!

Great property, clean, modern, close to the beach.

The owner is great, very fast to respond.

We stayed in the appartement with our 2 daughters and it was perfect. We could walk to the beach (5 minutes), come home for lunch and go back. In the past few years we have rented many beach properties and this one is by far the best. It was extremely clean and the kitchen was well equiped. The washer and dryer were very handy. It is close to the the Pier (walking distance) and the mini putt is also close by. We are already looking forward to going back next year!

Great property. Beautiful kitchen, open concept. Everyone in my family had favorite spot in cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at beach break. I read one of the many books available for the week between many visits to the nearby beach. My children loved the board games and computer desk. We loved the outside deck and air conditioning. It was a very comfortable place. We felt like we could genuinely relax here. We have stayed at many different cottages but have never been as comfortable as we were here. Thank you!

5 star stay in a clean, sunny, spacious home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for our family vacation in August 2016. There is not enough I can say for how excellent this property is maintained and managed. The owner was extremely responsive every time we connected, both prior to and during our stay. Everything that was described in the details of this property was 100% accurate. The location of the property is just a short walk's distance to the beach making ideal for a great family beach vacation. There was not a single thing that I wanted, that was not already provided in this home. The house is very spacious and exudes a feeling of relaxation. The kitchen and reading area are sunny and bright and just contribute to the happy feeling you get when you are there. The bedrooms were good sized with plenty of closet space. The bathroom was huge and has a washer and dryer right there, for your convenience. The private, fenced-in back yard is sizeable and can comfortably accommodate both renters of each unit, boasting each renter's own outdoor patio with a full sized grill as well as cute play house for those with small children. Everything was immaculately clean throughout the house and you can see that it is well maintained year round. We would highly recommend this property to anyone, and cannot wait to rent it again next year.
