"What a beautiful apartment, way better than the photos! Is the middle unit on a three story building, but you wouldn't know it- felt like a house, we didn't even realize there were people above and below us, and we sure never saw anyone else. The deck was private as was the parking and the entrance. Another reviewer mentioned the noise from the shipyard, we thankfully did not have the same experience and found our time sitting on the private, covered, deck quite enjoyable and peaceful. I actually found myself stepping outside to take some work calls and it was quieter than my family visiting inside! We also scored on a few cheap, fresh lobsters from one of the boats at the dock which as about 100 ft from your door. Great location for walking to restaurants in downtown Kittery, but also to Portsmouth, NH. I took a leisurely stroll with my infant son across the river to Downtown Portsmouth and it was only 20 minutes! Beautiful scenery along the way and fascinating old bridge that was a highlight of our trip.
The house was very comfortable and beautifully decorated, not like many vacation rentals where you can tell the owners just sort of threw together whatever thrift sore furniture they were able to come by cheap- the art work was classy and charming and really added to the over all ambiance of the place. We received numerous compliments from the many relatives who came by to visit us during our stay. Kitchen had all of the cooking supplies one would need and there were ample towels/blankets for everyone. There was also a pack-n-play for our 8 month old son to sleep/nap in which was a big help as we flew in from California and couldn't bring may of those types of items.
A big thing for us was the fact that it is one story: we had our 89 year old grandmother with us and many of the other rentals around required a journey upstairs to get to the bedrooms which would have been challenging for her. Though there are a few steps to get into the front door so a wheelchair probably wouldn't work, but was okay for grandma.
All in all we are very happy and will definitely be coming back and highly recommend to anyone looking for a New England get away!"
