Overview

Property Details

Updated: Aug 13, 2016
Condo, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 4

08/01/16 : OCEAN FRONT CONDO ACCOMMODATIONS

2016 : No Remaining Weeks

Also, I do have another cottage property in Ocean Park steps from the beach that I will be offering rentals to for the summer of 2016. I will be offering a new rental website to conduct all of my rentals from shortly as my plan is to decommission this listing from HomeAway.com due to their proposed fees to our customers. To avoid these fees contact me directly at:

jmoriarty-at-rcnDOTcom

or call me at listed phone #

This listing will begin transitioning to a NEW web site beginning in November 2016.

Check Calendar tab for availability. Calendar is kept up to date.

Also note that PEAK Summer Seasons are typically fully Reserved by FEBRUARY of the Same year.

'TRUE' Oceanfront Condominium - 0 Feet from the beach

Unquestionably the Best Condo Accommodations and location on the 7 miles of sandy

OOB beach. Better location/property/quietness and proximity to the sand than even the Grand Victorian at much less than half the price per week.

Two Oceanfront parking spaces. Condo sleeps up to 4/5 comfortably

with large(12'x14') oversized deck overlooking beachfront and pier.

NO PETS ALLOWED

NO SMOKING

Additional digital electronic pictures(Interior/Exterior) available upon

request. 'Virtual Tour' also available via external link. Will show the unit depending on my schedule availability.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was great! We took a chance and went mid-late September and got very lucky with the weather, which was a plus! The unit was very clean and suited our needs very well. I do not think there was anything that we needed that could not find within the condo. The view was spectacular and the balcony was a great size for sitting and enjoying it while having your morning coffee or a meal. We would love to visit again! The owner was great to deal with and was very helpful with any questions we had. Overall a great experience and a great place to stay! I would highly recommend it.

Awesome beach front condo!

  • 5 of 5

The listing of this property was very accurate. The condo was very clean. The owner is very friendly and responds in a very timely manner to any questions you have. He can be reached by phone or email. It was just perfect for myself and my 2 twin great grandsons. The loved to sit on the deck and eat their meals while listening to the waves. The deck is very spacious and has a table with four chairs and a bench to sit on. I would recommend this condo rental to friends and relatives. I will definately be staying again.

Ideal beachfront

  • 5 of 5

To me this must be close to the best rental property in OOB. Things I liked:

-Located only about 300 yards from the pier, and the fun activities. You can easily get by without a car. Many restaurants nearby.

-Located with a direct frontage to the beach, on 2nd floor for a fantastic view

-A spacious deck (about 10 by 10 feet) overlooking the ocean with sun in the am hours in September (it faces east).

- Lovely, well equipped, relatively new one bedroom apartment. No noise problems from people or activities.

-Uses a keypad for entry, a very convenient feature.

-Two parking spaces are allocated with ample maneuvering room

-Price is less than you would think for a property this nice

-Owner was very diligent and responsive. The rental and occupancy process was very smooth

Things I did not like: The only nit I have is that the sofa stands low and is rather soft making it difficult to get back up for old timers like myself

Great First Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this unit for two weeks with our 3 year old daughter; and although the weather wasn't always co-operative; she ran on that beach almost everyday. She absolutely loved it; and rightfully so. It's a beautiful place, amazing views, quiet atmosphere (not a row of hotel rooms), the neighbors were friendly. There is plenty to do and see in Old Orchard Beach and on rainy days we travelled south to New Hampshire and Boston; and North to Portland and Freeport. Will definitely go again, maybe mid-late summer next time.

Owner's Response: Glad your family enjoyed your stay. The weather pattern for the month of May this year was not as traditional or typical for the entire New England region. The beauty and location of OOB provides many options for families when weather doesn't co-operate or a break from the beach is needed.

Almost Perfect!

  • 4 of 5

We chose this condo after reading reviews and the pictures posted on the website. The owner was very easy to work with, and answered all our questions which is always a plus. He was also very approachable - never hesitating to answer a question for you!!

The location of this condo is perfect! Close enough for a nice walk to the pier and all of the shops, but far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet on the deck listening to the waves while sipping a glass of wine!!

Upon arriving, it was very warm in the condo even with an ocean breeze; but, we were on vacation...in the summer! The condo was clean and modern! I want to emphasize clean!! After reading another review, we brought along fans, but honestly only needed them for that one day/night. The rest of the week was warm, but the air circulated well! Plus - we were on the beach most of the day!!

Another reviewer mentioned the lack of pots and pans. If your that concerned, you may want to bring a few pans of your own. When we arrived and settled a bit, we looked at what we had for pots and pans and shopped accordingly. What we needed most were serving bowls, but we survived the week without them. We mostly ate in since we all loved sitting on the deck eating our dinner. We brought home cooked lobsters and sea food from the Clam Bake one evening which was so delicious!

Another small issue was one of the washing machines decided not to work AFTER we put our coins in! Somewhat frustrating, but again, we were on vacation and vacation is not a time to get worked up over losing $2.00.

As far as things to do in and around Old Orchard - its endless! We played mini golf, went deep sea fishing, visited the outlets in Kittery, drove to Cape Elizabeth which is beautiful and ate at the Lobster Shack while there. Took walks on the beach every morning which was a delight in itself! My boys threw a football around while in the water which was exceptionally warm, we played paddle ball, frisbee and people watched which is always entertaining! Sitting on the beach taking in the sun was mostly what I wanted to do and the weather was perfect the entire week!

I may have forgotten to mention this, but literally you walk out the door, take a few steps and you're on the beach! What is better than that?

I / We would certainly recommend this condo and truly believe you won't be disappointed.

If we decide on Old Orchard next year, we'll definately want to stay there again!

Owner's Response: This summer, like the summer of 2011 has been exceptionally warm. There are a few days where an AC function may be desired. Most units on the "direct" ocean front do not have them. None of the units in this entire asociation have them inclusive of owners units who live there year round. Nevertheless, I am exploring an AC capability for this rental unit as there is always 1 or 2 days a summer whereby they would be desired. Almost 99% of my renters have informed me that AC is not necessary 99% of the time but I have had 2 customers now that happened to stay on those exceptionally hot days of summer as indicated. With AC I will almost certainly have to adjust my rental rates to be competitively equal with other rentals that offer that same function. I don't think any of my reviews mentioned anything about lack of pots and pans and to be honest I have never received a complaint or indication otherwise. When I do recieve such information I respond immediately. I haven't cooked myself at this unit and do have a couple(from Florida) who stays there for one full month each summer for the last 6 years and they have never indicated a lack of any cookware, pots/pans, dishes,etc and I ask them each year if the unit needs anything since they would know. It may well be that the unit now needs more bowls but at one time it was fully equipped(inclusive of a lobster pot). I will have the kitchenware re-inventoried at the end of this season and replenish the stock. Sometimes what happens is a guest will rent with another family multiple units at this asociation and when I am missing things I find out later that they are now at another unit. The laundry facility belongs to the entire Association and is not specific to my unit and therefore I cannot guarantee its operational state although I will inform the association that a unit may require services. Despite the exceptions I'm glad my guests still enjoyed themselves and I do value the feedback for improving their experiences.

Baker Family

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean, as described, and location was excellent. Right on the beach as promised, near the pier, and within walking distance to many shops, restaurants, and other amenities. Our family, which includes a teenager and one almost teen, all had a wonderful time. The owner was very easy to work with, respnded to emails very promptly, prior to our vacation, and the rental pacaket that we received included everything we needed to know about the condo and our stay. I highly recommend this rental property and would love to stay here again in the future.

Owner's Response: I'm glad to hear when my guests enjoyed their vacation, the property, and its location. I guarantee all that I advertise. I do not advertise the weather but when the weather is great as it has been these past few summers the stay is even greater and more enjoyable. OOB( all 7 miles of it) is one of the most beautiful, sandiest, and cleanest beaches in the entire North East.
