Property description

This is a bright, relaxing, and comfortable home in a great location that was built by the owners with love. This is our primary residence but when renting, you will have the exclusive use of the house and property. During the rental season, we live in a small house which is located behind a fence on the edge of the property. This ensures we are nearby to assist with any needs and to make sure you have everything necessary for a great vacation.
We are happy to share our wonderful home and land with good people who will respect it. It is a fantastic location in the village of Cape Porpoise which is part of Kennebunkport. This home is unique as it is in the woods, yet a short walk to gorgeous water views and the conveniences of the village. There is even a tidal beach around the corner that you can walk to and take a dip or launch a kayak if you have one.

From the back porch, you will walk through the mudroom to see the big kitchen which is open to the living room and dining area. There is a downstairs master bedroom with master bath. A 1st floor 1/2 bath and laundry room as well. Upstairs leads to an art studio (easily used for additional sleeping) and 2 identical bedrooms and a full bath.

It's nice on a hot day to lay in the hammocks under the shade on our back porch. Or soak up the sun on the front patio where you can catch glimmers of the bay through the trees. Take a relaxing hot shower in the open air in our outdoor shower to wash the sand off from the beach. It even has 2 shower heads for couples!

Neighbors are visible yet you are surrounded by trees and have privacy. Stroll down the driveway which opens up to Cape Porpoise Harbor. Across the street is a fish house where you can buy fresh tuna (sashimi grade!), or lobsters and clams caught that day, they'll even steam them for you! In minutes you can walk to Bradburys Market in the center of Cape Porpoise and grab some supplies/vacation essentials. You can walk to the Wayfarer for a delicious breakfast (also serves lunch and BYOB dinner). Or stroll down beautiful Pier Road, around the head of the cove, to the amazing Pier 77/Ramp restaurant. Watch the boats come in with today's catch. This is all in our backyard, no car needed.

However; driving to local beaches is easy with over 5 beaches within 4 miles. Drive or bicycle down scenic ocean avenue past the Bush family compound to Kennebunkport, only 2.5 miles from the house for shopping, restaurants, and many more activities, including whale watches and sailing tours.

We will be more than happy to offer advice on activities in the area and assist with any other needs.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My wife, Dana, grew up right here in Cape Porpoise, a quintessential Maine fishing village, and I grew up in Kennebunk. We lived in Vermont for a decade after graduating from UVM. While we absolutely loved Vermont, we both knew Maine was our home. Three years ago, my wife's parents were kind enough to let us build a house on their land. They live in front of us on a tidal bay and share the same driveway. We feel so blessed to live in such a beautiful place near our family. We look forward to sharing it with people that will appreciate the ocean, the quiet village of Cape Porpoise, the salt air, and our hand built home.
