  • Great comfortable value, prime location

    "My family of two adults and two kids, ages 4 and 6, stayed here for a long weekend to attend a friend's wedding in Kennebunkport. The cottage was just as advertised, and there is also a great kids' play area - sand pit and play structure, as well as basketball hoop - in the central area. There is also a picnic table out back by the stream that we ate most meals at; breakfasts though were out front in the adirondacks in the bright sun. The location was excellent, with Parsons beach just down the road - like others, we drove instead of walked simply because we had kids (and when we were there, parking was fine) but the walk looked quite reasonable and goes along a very pretty tree-lined street alongside a horse farm. Kennebunk and Kennebunkport are very close indeed, and this was the best price we found for this area and had everything we needed. What was not clear from the property description and pics is that this is part of a group of vacation rental cottages - most now individually owned as condos, but still rented via a central house/office. That meant that - although less private - when we faced an issue - from needing an iron, to facing a clogged toilet (and no plunger) - there was on-site help available. It also meant the great play area was there for the kids to delight in. The road noise from Route 9 can be appreciable - the cottages are really right next to the road - but there's also a sweet stream out back and the frogs' chorus was beautiful, as was the morning birdsong. The kitchen is small but it's a cottage so that goes with the territory - and the nearby towns have an *abundance* of restaurants to complement your home cooking. All in all, great value, comfortable beds, great location. We would come here again."

  • Beautiful Beach Home With Plenty of Room

    "Me and my long time friends had the pleasure of spending the fourth of July weekend and we could not have had a better time. The house is much much bigger than we had anticipated so people could have their own space whenever they wanted but also be all together in one of the family rooms or back deck. The pictures do not do this place justice. It is an older house as described but it is very well maintained and has a lot of character which we all liked. The house was stocked with everything we needed to make our stay relaxing and carefree. The area is also such a beautiful place. It seems like a very safe and tight knit community. We went to the beach everyday which is maybe a 5 minute and even on a holiday weekend the beach area was pretty empty. We also walked down to the bluffs at the end of the road which is a 2 minute walk to catch the sunset or stargaze. I would highly recommend both. We hope to be back to the Barracks soon as this house allowed us for an unforgettable weekend."

  • Perfect home at Goose Rocks!

    "My family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children) had a wonderful stay in Audrey and Paul's home! It is definitely more of a home than a cottage. The entire house is updated, and is nicely decorated with pastels and beautiful, clean furniture. It is a very short stroll to the beach, only a street back from the ocean. There's actually an ocean view in one of the top floor rooms. We had no problem quickly stopping back into the house when we needed to use the restroom, or forgot something at the beach. Since it is more a house than a cottage, we made sure our kids were extra careful with the light colored rugs, furniture, etc, so definitely a place for you if you're willing to be extra careful of your surroundings. Goose Rocks is an amazing beach, and this is a great house, can't go wrong!"

  • Exactly what we needed

    "My family of four had a great stay for our summer vacation. This home had everything we needed. Living area was spacious, as were the bedrooms. We enjoyed cooking out on the grill and eating on the picnic table. We made the short walk down to the beach every morning. And it was a nice central location that was only short drive to everything in town. We missed out on this property last year, but I was glad to have been able to book it this year. We had a great time."
