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."

  • Simply amazing!

    "This home is truly amazing. The home was clean and as described in the listing. Our family of 6 adults and 3 children had more than adequate space for everything. The 1st and 4th floor bedrooms offer a very quiet space to get away for a while if you feel the need. The 4th floor suite has incredible ocean and marsh views from the 2 balconies. Having 3 full baths allowed for quick and easy getting ready options for our day. The kitchen, dining and living room floor had ample space for all of us to be together. And the kitchen cookware, dishes, glasses, etc were the most equipped we have ever seen. The beach access is a very short walk just across the street. We ate at local seafood restaurants and shopped at a nearby supermarket. Tim was easy to communicate with and he quickly returned e-mails with answers to any questions we had. I just want to thank Tim and his wife for sharing their beautiful home with us. When we travel to this area again we will definitely choose to stay here. I would recommend this home for any large family looking to enjoy a beautiful home in the Old Orchard Beach area."

  • Great spot!

    "We really enjoyed our stay here. It was a great location. It allowed us to visit many spots on the Maine coast from Kennebunkport to Portland. The apartment was spacious and clean, the kitchen was very well stocked, and the washer and dryer were wonderful. We had been on the road for a week so we really needed a washer and dryer. The beds were comfortable. The apartment was close to the beach and lots of restaurants. Joseph's was our favorite but you will probably need reservations. We would recommend this apartment, especially if you need multiple bedrooms and have a longer stay planned."

  • Perfect OOB Home for Large Group

    "Couldn't have asked for a better rental. Michael made the coordination of the rental so easy. And our family thought the house was just perfect.Bedrooms: back area has the bunk room and 2 bedrooms with a bathroom, bunk room is less private because other room are off of it but not an issue for families not requiring the privacy and the kids didn't mind it; front first floor bedroom is also good for those that can't make it upstairs; nice 4 bedrooms upstairs; bedrooms are larger than most beach rentals and everybody just loved that there were air conditioners in each! Bathrooms: good size and nice to have 3 for the amount of bedrooms. Living spaces: good amount of seating; kitchen and dining room setup perfect for large groups (which nicely opens up to deck or additional seating); A/C's in living areas too, so heat doesn't become an issue. Outside: good amount of parking and lots of seating, nice fire pit area, and good sized yard for games and dog (yes it's pet friendly too); not enough room for our badminton setup though because of the nice tree. Location: 5-10 minute walk to carnival, arcades, restaurants, pier, beach; easily dropped off family members that couldn't make the walk but most of the group walked each day. Details: We all thought the quality of the house and the furniture, cleanliness, etc was above average for a rental; lots of kitchen and beach items to utilize too. We slept as many as 14 in the house at once, with a total of 18 members staying throughout the week... everyone loved it! Only regret is that we wish we had booked a week for the summer of 2017 before it was fully booked!"
