"For those who think they must have a beachfront house, not true in Kennebunk Beach where the main road runs right behind or in front of the beachfront houses. This home is one block from the beach, with a huge yard and beautifully landscaped! For a family with children the situation is ideal, but even for all adults, it provides a more quiet location when one of the main reasons to visit is to leave your windows open to enjoy the cool breezes. The pictures of the house do not do it justice. Because the owner lived here with her family for 12 years, the house is furnished and decorated as someone would for their own home. Martha Stewart would approve! Many of the homes in the area for rent, because they are older and primarily summer vacation homes, are much more sparse in their furnishings and decorations. Here everything you need is available in the house, from beach towels and chairs, to sand toys and lincoln logs for the tots, a new Weber grill, a well appointed kitchen with Wolf appliances, and a beautiful dining room as well as a great table on the porch for outdoor dining which you must take advantage of. The owner was easy to work with and went out of her way to make sure everything during our stay went perfectly, from finding babysitters to giving us the name of a great local company to rent cribs, booster chairs and pay n plays from. We will definitely be back!"
