About Jean Johnson

I grew up in Holden Massachusetts and moved to this wonderful property year round in 2002. I am lucky to have a home onsite, separate from the rental unit. I am here for my guests if needed, yet apart for privacy. I feel truly blessed to have this wonderful business. It's a privilege to host families on their vacations, to provide them with a home away from home. They're happy and excited to be here!

Jean Johnson purchased this condo in 2000

Why Jean Johnson chose Southern Coast

Purchasing this property was a great opportunity! As a single mom, I can work part time at my "regular" job at Maine Medical Center, and be here to take care of my guests and daughter. I love being part of the Old Orchard Beach community. Fixing up the rental units is fun for me! Painting rooms, sewing curtains, planting flowers and even spring cleaning I look forward to every year. The summer is hectic and fun!! But I do appreciate the beautiful, quiet beach days in September and all the seasons! Cross country skiing on the beach is breathtaking after a snow storm.

What makes this condo unique

Living here on the premises allows to me take special care of things. I water and tend the flowers, and take out the trash! Who needs to remember to do that on their vacation? If something goes wrong, I am just a text, or a few steps, away. I can get problems, if they arise, fixed quickly.

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Jean greeted us with a warm welcome and was very helpful. Place was super clean and just perfect for all of us. Beds were comfortable and the porch was a perfect place to look out at the ocean and enjoy meals. Thanks. We would most certainly come again.

Awesome stay

  • 5 of 5

Jean, the owner, was there to great us with a smile! The apartment was clean, airy, and cozy. We sat on the front porch every morning drinking coffee while looking at the Ocean. The beach is steps away. We stayed mid June before opening season so the neighborhood was quiet and the beach was not crowded. I highly recommend this property!

My family and I had the most wonderful vacation in Old Orchard, staying at High Tide apartments. It is located in our favorite area of the beach, both walking distance to the pier and to the quaint Ocean Park area. Our second floor apartment was bright and airy and immaculate and offered beautiful views of the ocean. The owner was terrific and more than accommodating, all of our needs were met and the fun we had exceeded our expectations. Safe,quiet street, convenient on site parking, steps to the beach, perfect location.....We are going to make this a yearly family tradition now that we have found the perfect place to stay in Old Orchard!

Unforgettable Vacation in Old Orchard Beach at the High Tide

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the High Tide was the best vacation spot we have ever rented. The beach is beautiful, nice clean sandy beach with beautiful views and only steps from the rental. We had a fantastic time, great restaurants, and entertainment, something for everyone. The owner was very helpful, letting us know the best places to dine and we were not disappointed. It is a great place to stay if you have children, everything is within walking distance and there are Life Guards on the beach, a plus when you have little ones. I would highly recommend staying at the High Tide, we plan on making this our go to place for vacationing in Southern Maine whenever we can.

What a week!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a week in July. We rented out all three units. The house is immaculate and only feet from the beach. Perfect for running back and using the bathroom or grabbing snacks (especially with kids)! The view from the house to the ocean is awesome from all three units. Its also in walking distance to the pier and has plenty of entertainment for both adults and kids. I highly recommend this place and I'm definitely going back!
