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

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.

Short Walk to the Beach

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time in this spacious home. The home is well maintained and clean. The location couldn't have been better and the weather was great! We've been to Maine before and were looking forward to going again to Reds for the best lobster rolls ever!!! The kids loved that they were so close to the arcade and the rides. Bill's pizza is so good, too! We look forward in returning soon.

Beautiful, Clean ans Super Kid Friendly

  • 5 of 5

We came as 2 families with young children and absolutely loved this home. Many kid friendly features and gorgeous fenced backyard with Toys! (Kids played hours in the little house!)

Plenty of space, 5 min walk to the beach and 15 min walk to all the nightlife and pier.

Great vacations

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this lovely cottage.

The house was beautiful, clean, well equipped and at a walking distance from the beach.

Communications with the owners was smooth and friendly.

The only complaint we have is that time passed too fast. ;)

Great holiday house

  • 5 of 5

Our family (two adults and two teenagers) had a lovely relaxing time here for a week in July. The house was really nicely decorated and equipped to a high standard. We enjoyed the table tennis and BBQ area of the back garden and sitting on the deck at the front. The house had a great location, close to the beach, and a short drive to Portland. Would recommend a holiday here.
