Recent Old Orchard Beach reviews

  • Great location, great owners, great experience!

    "This home is exactly as advertised, and then some. Those pictures, where you see the beach from the door? That's *exactly* how it is. Once you walk out the door, you are seconds away from your feet hitting the sand, and the sand really is powdery and soft. At low tide, the water pulls back a couple of hundred feet, so there's a ton of room to setup shop and play. For all that, the beach area in front of the cottage is practically empty (and we were there mid-August), so you feel like you have the place to yourself. You can look south toward town, and maybe a hundred yards away the beach is packed, but no one makes the trip past the main hotels. There's very little seaweed in the water, so it's a pleasurable swim even for the finicky. You're outside of the main downtown (pier) area, so it's very quiet. But it's only a 10-15 minute stroll to get to the pier and the shopping, when you want to go out to eat, to Palace Playland, etc. It's only a 5 minute walk in either direction on the main road to get to a convenience store for necessities, snacks, or a quick sub or pizza if you need it. If you want to hop in the car, there are plenty of dining options in the area (esp. if you're a fan of traditional Maine lobster shacks), and it's only a half hour drive to Portland. The cottage is cozy, clean, updated and well furnished. The beds are comfortable, and you have several room options. The kitchen was well stocked, even with some of those less common utensils and cookware. You can make a beeline from the door through the kitchen to the bathroom to jump in the shower after coming back from the beach, to wash off some of the more persistent sand. Beach chairs, boogie boards, even some shovels and buckets are in the storage area under the deck; and we grilled out on the brand new grill more than a couple of times. The owners are amazing! They spend the summer in the house next door, so we were greeted upon arrival. They had a little gift basket ready, and Lena dropped by every other day with another little gift for our 2-1/2 year old daughter. We didn't have a high chair for our 10 month old son, and the owners pulled one up from their basement as soon as we mentioned it. They were super friendly and easy to talk to. When we were leaving, they asked some questions about anything we found missing or lacking in quality, so it was obvious that they are very interested in finding out about anything they may have overlooked so they can rectify it ASAP."

  • Perfect Retreat CLOSE to Beach!

    "I loved my retreat to this home in the beautiful Maine fall. I stayed for a full month and enjoyed every minute of this cozy home. The beach is a short stroll away, seriously less than a block and can be seen from the street in front of the home. The glassed in porch could not be more inviting and you will find lots of pamphlets and information here for the surrounding area activities, dining, Amtrak, etc. The kitchen is fully and quality stocked. The Patio was perfect for unloading wet beach shoes and for my puppy to get washed down. Parking was easy and secure. The home was plenty roomy when my friends visited for a week and we slept 5 adults comfortably. Having two bathrooms with all those Women was a welcome treat and the TVs in the bedrooms too. Lots of games and things to do on down times. These hosts were super easy to work with and even went out of their way to return an important piece of luggage I left behind immediately. Thank you all so much for providing a lovely home and vacation!! If I could arrange it, I would return here every year. The beach? Love Love Love it anytime of day or night!!"

  • Beautiful Home

    "This house is even better in person. It was so clean and absolutely perfect for us and the guests we brought up with us. The house is in a perfect area with just a short walk to the center of all the action in Old Orchard Beach. Matt was also a pleasure to communicate with. He gave us tips on things we could do and made sure we were taken care of for the week. We loved it so much we already booked it again for next year!"

  • Clean, Cozy, and has everything you need

    "We loved our stay at the Beecherie cottage. It was above our expectations. We were amazed to find everything we needed and more. We've enjoyed the nice gazebo outside, and were thrilled to be a few minutes away from the beach. Thank you so much for a lovely stay! Natasha and Mario"
