Great location!

We rented this condo at the last minute and could not have been happier with the location! It was so close to the beach, even our 21 month old and almost three year old had no trouble walking there. We arrived in the morning went back "home" for lunch and nap then back to the beach again in the afternoon. It's a gorgeous beach too! Early in the morning, I walked to the coffe shop around the corner for hot coffe and a muffin. It was close enough to the Orchard Beach pier to walk to and enjoy the activities.
The actual condo, however, left a lot to be desired. It was very small, difficult to move around. The only bathroom was in the teeny tiny kitchen and had a flimsy folding door without a lock. The only room in the condo had a round table for eating and a futon that the owners wanted to pass off as a sofa. The futon was full of dog fur and smelled like a dogs bed. The kitchen was pretty dirty and not equipped for basic meals. There were 6 bath towels, two hand towels and one dish towel that wasn't laundered from the dollar store. That was it. The bed sheets were almost threadbare. The beds were moderately uncomfortable. The floors were grubby and sticky.
When all was said and done, the only thing that saved the day was the beach. I would not recommend this unit to anyone who values cleanliness, however, if you want a close location to beach and this is the only thing available, you can wash everything before you use it, like we did!

Owner's Response: This renter inquired about renting my condo on the Sunday morning that they arrived. She said her original rental had fallen through at the last minute (the owner didn’t want their young children sleeping on his new mattresses)and was looking for a new place to stay. When I told her it was available to rent, she said she would arrive in 2 hours.
Upon arrival the renter came in to look at the condo, and rented it on the spot with no complaints about the size, amenities or appearance. I informed her that our phone number was posted in the unit should she have any problems during her stay.
The review states that it has a “teeny tiny kitchen,” and that the bathroom has a flimsy folding door. She viewed the entire condo before renting and said nothing about the size or amenities of the kitchen. The galley kitchen is fully equipped with everything needed to prepare meals except the food which was her responsibility. In 9 years of renting (summer and winter) I have never had a complaint about the kitchen amenities, and have numerous renters that return each year. She stated that the only room had a futon and a table. She did not mention the two bedrooms included in her rental or the back patio complete with a grill and patio set.
The towels and sheets she mentioned were brand new having never been used as this is the first year we have included linens for the convenience of our renters. She also complained about grubby sticky floors. Perhaps one of her three young children under the age of 5 spilled something or made a mess, as young children tend to do.
As for the mattresses, I apologize if you did not find them comfortable. The rental website clearly states that there is a futon in the living room, and makes no mention whatsoever of a sofa. Had the presence of a futon rather than a sofa been a determining factor in this renters decision, perhaps during their walk through they would have changed their mind and looked elsewhere for their vacation. We have found that many of our renters prefer the futon over a sofa because it adds an extra full size bed to the unit.
In closing this renter viewed the condo before renting and had no complaints. My phone number is posted for anyone to call with problems or concerns, and we received no contact during their stay. This condo is professionally cleaned before each rental. The pictures on the Vacation rentals site clearly show the setup of the condo, and all of the amenities are listed on the site.
