About Anita French

We live just over the border in New Hampshire but love to play at York Beach. We formed Periwinkle Properties LLC when we purchased a collection of three houses in the spring of 2012 and added one more in January 2015 right next door, Windswept. Periwinkle combines our interest in fixing up older houses with time at the beach. 'Hidden Treasure', 'Breakwater', 'High Tide' and 'Windswept' are all part of Periwinkle and available for rent individually or as a package.

Anita French purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Anita French chose Southern Coast

This house has a great outdoor space and is a located on a scenic walk to Short Sands. The renovation is a wonderful blend of old and new construction and very spacious for large gatherings. There are glimpses of the bay from several upstairs windows and the sound of the buoy bell will lull you to sleep at night. Set away from the road, it is quiet and charming.

Spacious and clean house

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a large group for a retreat, and the house was great for us! We had no issues with cleanliness or comfort. It unfortunately rained that weekend, but the house had enough room for us to do teambuilding activities indoors. Anita was a great host - really helpful and responsive before our stay, and was very understanding when we tore a wicker chair (during routine use).

Staying at Windswept

  • 4 of 5

I love this little house. They keep it clean, the yard is big, it is a walkable distance to the beach, the nubble and ice cream!

Anita is easy to work with and answered any questions quickly.

Questions not answered

  • 3 of 5

Though they claim to answer questions within an hour 3 days and counting and still no answer. Three stars is only on the lack of communication not the great looking property. I'm not booked on July 27th but that was a requirement to post.

Windswept is an excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family stayed a week at Windswept in York Maine. It was a great house with plenty of room for all of us. The space and amenities were excellent along with a very short walk to the beach. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely plan to return.

Comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

Windswept comfortably accommodated our group of 7, although more guests could have stayed with us. The area is quiet, yet within a few minutes walk of the beach, downtown area, and places to view the sunrise or sunset. Everything we needed was provided and in good working condition. I would definitely stay again in the future!
