Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
House, 9 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, 25 Sleeps

31 Atlantic Ave, Old Orchard Beach, Maine

Immaculate summer residence converted from an old hotel (3500 sq ft). It is just 2 blocks from sandy beach of 7 miles (5-10 min walk). Far enough away from the noise and traffic of the amusement park and pier but close enough to walk to. Perfect for large family reunions. Why rent 3-4 cottages when veryone can stay under one roof!

This property is licensed with the town of Old Orchard Beach and the state of Maine. It meets all local and state regulations and safety guidelines.

  • Sleeps 25

Love the Olivia.......

  • 5 of 5
This is the second year we were at the Olivia and once again we enjoyed our stay very much. Any large family would love this place. It is so well equipped and with two stoves and two refrigerators we had ample room for our week's worth of groceries and beverages. Walking into the house you could immediately tell it was very clean and well maintained. Walking down the street to the Pier is only abt a ten minute walk and to the beach is only a five minute walk!!! And again....must mention the large screened in porch with many rocking chairs......my favorite spot!!!! Great place!

We all had a wonderful time staying at the Olivia. There were 13 adults and 4 kids and it was so nice to have amble room for us all.......the kids used the toy room every day and the adults had their own TV room. My favorite spot was the large screened-in porch....nice spot to read a good book!!! The Olivia is a beautiful old house and could not believe how well stocked and clean it is.....we did not want for anything. The enclosed small backyard (with two patio sets) was perfect for the kids. We brought a small blow up pool for them and it was the perfect spot for them to play. Close to the ocean and a short walk to The Pier.......would definitely go back to the Olivia!!!

Great rental!

  • 5 of 5
From the screened in front porch full of rocking chairs to the fenced in back yard this vacation rental more than met our expectations. With 13 adults and 4 children 4 years old and under we "lived in" this house for a whole week. We have vacationed as a family for several years now and this rental was by far the best with the space, proximity to the beach and downtown, yard for small kids, outside shower, on-site laundry and well stocked kitchen than one could imagine. Even the parking was ample considering we had 6 vehicles. Nice touches included sample-sized shampoos, soaps, etc. in the bathrooms. The house was spotless when we arrived and the 2 refrigerators and 2 cook stoves were most accommodating to our huge grocery and beverage needs. All in all we had a wonderful time, met the owners and the property overseer, and would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to house a large number of people under one roof.

Beautiful, roomy place, but...

  • 3 of 5
Would have given this a 5 star, as the place is old-fashioned,beautiful and roomy. The only problems we had while there was a toilet that did not flush properly and smoke alarms going off in the middle of the night for no apparent reason. We had 18 adults and 4 children so we really USED the place.The day we left, we cleaned, vacuumed and scrubbed for over 2 hours.However, a week after we arrrived home we received an e-mail from the owner stating that we left a VERY DIRTY house, citing grease on the counter, egg on a utensil, a smear of chocolate on a couch cover, hair in one of the showers and some hair on a mattress cover. For these oversights, the owner felt that it warranted taking our hefty security deposit. Nothing was broken or missing, and considering that we had 22 people living there for a week, the items he mentioned seemed small indeed. I feel that I need to make anyone considering renting The Olivia aware of this as the rental price is not inexpensive, including the taxes. And if you're like our family, the security deposit goes toward our winter fuel expenses when returned. Have vacationed @ OOB for over 25 years and have NEVER not had our security deposit returned to us. It is indeed a lovely place, but the owner's keeping our deposit definitely put a sour spin on our vacation. It makes me wish we had not invested the hours we did, cleaning it before we left. At least then, it would have seemed fair. I have submitted a letter to him for reconsideration but have not as yet received a reply.

Owner's Response: We can understand the renters being upset. As owners/operators, we understand that little things will be missed and we do not penalized renters for it. This is why in addition to expecting the house to be cleaned upon departure, my wife and I still come up to oversee additional cleaning, stock supplies and check that everything is in working order when new renters arrive. Our rental fee does not cover extensive cleaning expenses. All renters are told well in advance of what the cleaning expectations are and cleaning guidelines are provided with the rental contract as well as being posted in the unit. We will not comment on how these renters thought they left the place, but there was a lot more to address than what they are referring to. Also we can say that over the last 4 years of renting, this is the 1st time we ever kept the full deposit. Specifically with this renter they never brought to our attention any issues they had with the house during the week nor did they bring to our attention prior to posting this review their perspective regarding the notification they received from us explaining why their cleaning deposit will be withheld. It is unfortunate it had to turn out this way.
