Great location to the beach.

  • 4 of 5
Great location to the beach especially if you have little ones. This was our tenth year renting this house and couldn't be more pleased. All rooms were clean. All appliances were functional. Owners were always friendly and available if needed. Ten minute ride to restaurants and supermarket. Have recommended this location to family and friends in the past

10 years of great vacations..the best!

  • 5 of 5
We love the location...just steps from the public access...convenient for older kids to go safely back and forth. The layout is great...kitchen faces the water and back deck has grill and a yard for the kids. It's close to all the fun things our family enjoys (miniature golf, York Zoo, Nubble Lighthouse, Kennebunkport, Ogunquit, Mike's Clam Shack, Angelina's and The Maine Diner). The property is maintained and clean...a great kitchen to cook in and 5 bedrooms! Vinny and Sue are always available to us and are always looking for ways to improve and "add value" to our vacations.
I would definitely recommend staying here....our family doesn't even consider any other rental, we've been going there for 10 years. Sue & Vinny are great hosts....like family.

Perfect spot!

  • 4 of 5
This house is in the perfect location for beach walkers and we took advantage of the opportunity! It provided a cozy and comfortable vacation for 3 generations of family - a total of 8 adults. It easily met our needs with the number of bedrooms and location. Why 4 stars and not 5? We could have used another bathroom, but the reality is 2 bathrooms are max in the area if a house is not new construction. Susan and Vinny were very accommodating and thoughtful. A vase of fresh flowers greeted us on the table when we arrived. If we decide to repeat this type of vacation again, we would definitely book here.

First wonderful trip to Maine

  • 4 of 5
On arrival we were blessed with fresh cut flowers when we walked in the door. Vinny & Susan were very nice. They let us know that if there was anything we needed to let them know. The house was very close to the beach which we enjoyed walking. My grandson & myself were blessed with a very warm day and was able to get in the ocean. There was a total of 7 staying in the house and there was still room for three more. The living room was a little small but it was fine because we were on the go most of the time. Our ages ranged from 70 down to 14. Would not hesitate to rent again. Thank you Vinny & Susan

Unhappy

  • 1 of 5
This was the worst experience and I would never rent from this guy. He never called or emailed me back and had to have my husband drive up the week before we rented to see if he was actually legit. We thought we were getting scammed. All his numbers were disconnected. He lives upstairs (which we didn't know at the time) and we didn't feel safe leaving our kids home alone because he had access to downstairs. He said that we stole 2 comforters and broke the screen on the front door. Let me just say that the screen was broken when we got there and didn't think I needed to share that with him since he lived there and he greeted me at the door that he held open for me. Most of all the window screens had holes in them. The comforters were the nastiest looking things and we actually brought all our own sheets, blankets and pillows and wouldn't even think about using his. The couch was so old and dirty you didn't even want to sit on it. We were steps away from the beach. The beach was nasty and full of bugs and seaweed. We had to go down to the public beach and pay to park every day. The owner took some of our security deposit from us without even telling us why. He sent a letter with 1/2 our security deposit back. We can't even call him to ask about it because he doesn't even have a phone. We went up to go talk to him and he wasn't there and we talked to the wife and he still hasn't called me back to discuss and that was in July. Won't email either.

Owner's Response: I do think it is important to first clarify the last point about our lack of communication since the reviewer unexpectedly came by our home – the reviewer is absolutely correct, we have not called or communicated since nor will we. The reviewer failed to mention that when they “went up to talk” to us, her husband and another gentleman came into our property and home without permission while my wife was alone, scared my wife, and refused to leave until a police officer on patrol escorted them off my property. This was terrifying for my wife, and in our 13 years of renting have never had an experience like this.
We are very disappointed the reviewers’ vacation did not live up to expectations, we have rented our home for 13 years and this is the first time we have concerns of this level. We do our best to over-communicate before our rentals begin and expectations are set. I am surprised to hear feedback that communication before the rental was sufficient, but we take this feedback seriously. As with most rentals, we do require a $500 refundable security deposit to cover the costs of unexpected damage, lost items, etc. In this specific instance, our home was not left in a condition we found satisfactory. To repair the damage and replace the linens we withheld $150 from the security deposit, which we thought was fair. Depending on the tides and current, like many beaches, we can occasionally get seaweed that gathers at the end of the beach however it rarely ever comes as close as the beach access and with low tide you should have hundreds of feet of beach to stay away from any seaweed that gathers.
We are certainly disappointed by this review, and were disappointed with this experience renting. We bought this home because of our love for the beach, and in 13 years have had the pleasure of sharing this love with hundreds of families. We love our home, love to share our home, and love meeting our renters from all over the world many of whom come back yearly and have become friends.
Respectfully,
Vinny Dolan
