Perfect family vacation place!
What's not to love about a home that is two blocks from the beach AND is beautifully furnished? My family enjoyed the outdoor firepit and all the beach toys. We cooked some nice meals and enjoyed going into the village for all that Kennebunkort has to offer. We lucked out with terrific weather. Jim is very responsive to any question. Highly recommend this piece of paradise!
This home is just beautiful and the owner was very accommodating.
We had a family reunion here. The home is lovely- beautifully decorated with a wonderful open floor plan. We would stay there again in a heartbeat!
Beautiful house inside and out! Great location!
We LOVED this house! Everyone who stayed there or stopped by for a visit commented on how beautiful it was. Even better than the pictures. Perfect for a large family vacation. The bedroom over the garage is great for kids. Plenty of space – nice big spaces for everyone to be together as well as little spots to be on your own. Loved the fire pit - used it every night. Excellent location - A short walk to the beach and a little over a mile into town. Stocked with beach toys, games, chairs, and cart for transport. The owner, Jim, was so nice and helpful. Easy to communicate with and even provided suggestions on things to do/places to go during our stay. We can't wait to come back!
Wonderful Family Vacation
We had such a wonderful time in Jim and Julia's home. Their house is beautiful, is close to beach and has everything (and more) that you could possibly need. If we had any questions they are always available. We've been coming to Kennebunk for 10+ years and this has been our favorite trip so far! We can't wait to go back next summer!
Loved everything about this house! High end amenities, beautifuly decorated, comfortable and cozy and perfect location! Great access to beach and town!

The beds are high quality as is everything else in the house. Great back patio area as well for grilling and smores. Easy walk to Gooch's beach. Garage had beach chairs, toys, and cart to carry everything. Also explored other area beaches. LoveD Goose Rocks area too. Spent a day in Portland as well, beautiful lighthouse and neat city.
