About Jean French

Our family has been coming to Goose Rocks Beach for the past 30 years. We love this community and beach.

Jean French purchased this condo in 1997

Why Jean French chose Kennebunkport

The two cottages are directly behind our house. This historic 1905 property was once a General Store. We have updated the entire property and divided it into three separate units. We live in the one in the front and rent the other two.

What makes this condo unique

Walk out of your door, cross the street, and you are on one of the most beautiful sandy beaches in Maine!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

7 of us rented both units for a week for a Girls' Get-a-Way. From my first contact with the owners to the timely return of my security deposit, everything was perfect. The units themselves are incredibly well appointed and equipped ... blankets, dishes, knick-knacks were all first rate. The kitchen was better stocked than my own with plenty of dishes, pots and pans, dishwasher detergent, glassware, silverware. They thought of everything. And then there is the locations .... right across the street from the beach and great beach views from the deck and from a little TV room in Unit B. Even though the weather wasn't great, we had a great time and would definitely rent this place again.

Two bedroom

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a friend rented the two bedroom for four days and three nights....we loved everything about this unit. We plan on coming back next summer for two weeks. The surrounding area was beautiful, we just didn't have enough time to see and do everything we wanted to do...the entire area is wonderful. The ocean was our front yard...thank you for sharing this unit...

Excellent location and owners

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for our family with young children. A hop to the beach and short drives to adorable Maine towns. The two bedroom apartment was impeccable and tastefully decorated. The owner was very accommodating with changing dates (after labor day) and even refunded a night after a dishwasher malfunction. I hope we can return next year!

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

I rented both units for a girls' weekend (roughly 10 of us) and it was absolutely perfect!! There was a enough room for all of us. The apartments are very well appointed, extremely comfortable and perfectly located. I would note that everything is upstairs, so if you have issues climbing stairs, it may be tough. But the beach across the street was easily accessible (entry at the end of the street), and the Tides Beach Club was only 1 block away. So we had the best of all worlds - our own place to hang out, a perfect beach and a fun happy hour at a beautiful resort. I highly recommend this location for fun weekend getaways!

I love this beautiful house right on a gorgeous beach

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in either unit B or unit C a few times over the past 3 years. The location cannot be beat -- directly across a tiny street from the beach, so there were days when I didn't even wear shoes.

The beach itself is gorgeous, very quiet, and perfect for kids because it's wide and sandy and the water is very calm and shallow. This past visit I was there with my 3-year-old nephew and he loved it. We would walk across the street to the beach for an hour or two in the morning, then come back for lunch and a nap, and then go back to the beach or walk to the playground in the afternoon. Plus I took my own walks on the beach in the early morning or as the sun was setting. It really makes a difference, staying right there on the ocean instead of even 2-3 blocks away.

The units themselves are so charming and set up well for guests. Kitchens have dishes and pots and pans, big open living/dining areas, wifi is good, furniture is comfortable and everything feels homey and well looked after. Each unit has a little balcony which is great for sitting and reading. Being able to sit and watch the water from your own balcony is such a special pleasure!

Our hosts were lovely, they've been doing this awhile and made everything so easy.

I'm already planning on going back next year...and the year after that...

Goose Rocks Beach is a very special find and this rental right on the beach is the perfect way to enjoy it.
