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:
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
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.

About the Owner
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!
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.
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
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.
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!
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.
