vacation rental description

Hi there, and welcome to Old Orchard Beach!  Our beautiful, cozy (1100 sq feet), three bedroom home is a short 8-10 minute stroll from the 7-mile beach and a short walk to downtown, the Pier, shops, restaurants, and amusement park.  We're also only a two minute walk to the Salvation Army Seaside Pavilion!  We're close enough to the O.O.B. action to have a GREAT time, but far enough away when you want peace and quiet.

We remodeled every room in this house ourselves and we’re still married!  This home accomodates 6 very comfortably and can sleep 9 if a couple of folks are willing to bunk up on a couch bed (the ends move to the middle to create a full bed) or fold out the extra futon in the master bedroom (no worries! There's a queen size memory foam bed in there as well).  We have a two car driveway plus plenty of free street parking available.  This is a pet and smoke free home (please feel free to smoke outside of course). 

We are fully licensed and meet all town safety and code requirements.  Please feel free to call or email anytime for information or to book.  Happy vacation!!

traveler reviews for this old orchard beach house rental

This place is a gem.

Review submitted: June 21, 2013   Date of arrival: June 8, 2013

My family and I have been coming to Old Orchard for almost 10 years. The house we planned to rent fell through this year, so we tried this place. The owners are very very sweet and nice. I called and talked to Melissa who emailed me a rental contract for the week. I had the option to either send a check or use Paypal. Because our other house had just fallen through we went the PayPal route figuring it would be faster than the mail system. The whole booking was signed, done, and paid for within 15 minutes. The easiest booking I've had so far renting in this area. We walked into the house exactly as described. I'm big on reviews, so they helped a lot. The reviews on these people and this house are very accurate. We walked in to an immaculately clean house (no joke cleanest house we've ever rented here) with a plate of chocolates on the table (also no joke)and a note welcoming us. We walked in and felt at ease and comfortable right away. One of the really nice things is that all of the linens were included. We've never had this before. Every place we've ever rented here we had to bring our own. Lots less to pack which was very nice and gave us more room to breathe in the car. We were confused a little about how to work the TV remote and then found directions in the welcome book.
The backyard was our evening safe haven. It's cozy and comfortable. The fire pit is new this year(we were the first to use it)and the tiki torches were nice. There is a wagon full of toys in the back that we also used to wheel our granddaughter down to the beach in when we walked there and she liked that a lot. It took us almost 10 minutes to walk down to the beach. One day we were lazy and drove the the bottom of the hill and parked down there on the side of the road(it was free)so it took us 1 minute instead. There is a 2 car driveway. We are big grillers, so having a grill outside was nice. We really like the carnival on the beach, but like taking the kids to FunTown/Splashtown better. The beach carnival is fun for a couple of rides when we're at the beach, but the better bang for your buck is Funtown/Splashtown bracelet pass. There are way more rides and there's a waterpark and amusement park in one place and it's right down the road. We also walked to mini golf one night which was fun and then home to the peace and quiet. I highly recommend an Old Orchard vacation and highly recommend this house for it. We'll be renting this house every year if at all possible.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thank you SO much for taking your time to write this wonderful and helpful review! I absolutely agree that Funtown/Splashtown is a WAY better amusement park option for the day! Although I DO love the ferris wheel on the beach. I just think it's so beautiful. :) I am so happy that you felt comfortable in our home. That's what we want! Thank you thank you for choosing our home and thank you for writing such a thoughtful review! SO nice of you to do!
Hope you have a WONDERFUL year!
:) Melissa

At home in Old Orchard Beach

Review submitted: August 17, 2012   Date of arrival: July 28, 2012

We loved the house so much after our vacation last year, that we came back again! It is our home away from home. The property is lovely, in the words of my neat-freak sister, "the cleanest summer house I have ever stayed in!" Not just clean, but full of the little comforts of home that make it special -- hairdryer, television, games, books, chocolates (!), beach toys and towels, terrific grill,a kitchen with everything you need to eat in, etc. Plenty of room to park the cars, a very attractive front lawn, and a great little backyard patio cap off the joys of this beach house.

The owners provided excellent customer service, friendly and helpful. They provide a three-ring binder full of suggestions for fun places to go and things to do, and clear, easy to follow instructions about keeping the house in good working order and cleaning up at the end of our stay. They were attentive to every need.

I would definitely recommend this property to a long as my friend didn't try to take the weeks that I want! Old Orchard Beach (OOB)is quite lively, but our little neighborhood, just a few blocks from the ocean and a few more from the pier, was quiet and peaceful. Great for sleeping.

I recommend OOB for a great Maine vacation with amazing seafood, gorgeous scenery, yummy ice cream shops like Martels, Garsides, and Smiling Hill Farm, and the very interesting towns of Saco and Biddeford right at your fingertips. These two places are great for American history buffs, and the transformation of Biddeford's old factory mill into shops should encourage all those who care about small business in America. Particularly fun is Perk, the coffee shop that also sells the most delicious baked goods and sweets made right on the premises! There's also nearby Scarborough, Pine Point, and Camp Ellis for some great restaurants like Huot's and The Rising Tide, and awesome fudge from The Nestling Duck Gift Shop. And OOB is perfect for taking day trips out to Oqunquit, Portland, Rockland, Camden, and places like that. When taking family to the Portland Jetport, we found that a great breakfast place was The Egg and I.

We had a busy, fun, but still relaxing time. And it was relaxing just because of our great summer vacation house -- it really made us feel at home in OOB!

Owners response: Oh my goodness...
Thank you so SO much for this wonderful review! How nice of you to say all of these nice things about us and our home! What's really funny is that we haven't even tried some of these places you're suggesting to thanks for the fun ideas! Apparently we've got to get on the ball and get out more often! Haha! Steve and I (and baby Sage)are so happy that you and your family enjoy your stay and find our home to be your "home away from home." This is honestly all we for you to have a place where you can relax and feel at home. So this is the BEST compliment you could have ever given. Thank you thank you thank you!!! Have a super super winter!! :)

Loved this perfect retreat

Review submitted: July 10, 2012   Date of arrival: May 5, 2012

This was the perfect anniversary retreat for my husband and I. He is very particular about cleanliness of places we stay and this house far exceeded his (and my) expectations. We had an amazing romantic getaway with a quite beach, quiet backyard, and a wonderful midweek visit with some old friends who came up from Mass to stay with us. Our only complaint is that the ocean water was very very cold which, in all fairness, the owners warned us about. We also felt very good about renting from a new family. They went above and beyond to accomodate us. Melissa, we made your clambake recipe and it was to die for! Thank you!

Owners response: I'm so glad you liked the recipe(and the house of course)! I'm so happy you had a great time! And we really appreciate you taking the time to write a review of our home. We try very hard to make our home as clean, comfortable, and stress-free as possible for folks and really appreciate the feedback very much. Thank you again for choosing our home for your vacation.
