Quaint Cottage at Long Sands Beach !!

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Feb 11, 2016
This is a old fashioned Cottage, with 1 Bedroom, 1 (3/4) Bath, and Sleeps 2.

This romantic, quaint, standalone cottage is one in a 20 unit condominium village across the street from the southern end of Long Sands Beach near the intersection of Long Sands Road and York Street. Although it is just across from the beach, it's not waterfront as there are other cottages in the area. But you can't beat the location!! It's nicely furnished and will appeal to the romantic couple, a couple of friends, or couple with a child. Unfortunately, it cannot accomodate any party larger.

We rent by the week only from Memorial Day thru Labor Day, and ask for a security deposit & rental agreement (see rental rates below):

* Rental Fee = $1150 per week (Saturday to Saturday)

* Security Deposit = $350 (Refundable if no damage)

* State Tax of 8%

It has been updated over the years and has:

* a remodeled galley kitchen

* living and dining area with new wide pine floors, and a screened porch

* a private bedroom with wide pine floors,

* a double bed, large windows and ceiling fan

* two (2) armchairs in the living room

* a small electric fireplace in the living room

* a bedroom door separates the two areas for privacy.

So it's surprisingly spacious and private and feels more like a two bedroom - - and you walk across York Street and you're on the beach !!

* One (1) (10x12) Bedroom with double bed, (2) nite stands, a large bureau, storage, ceiling fan;

About the Owner

I've owned this cottage since 2001, and it's changed quite a bit since then...new roof,, new siding. new floors throughout and new furniture. We use it ourselves quite a bit as I'm self employed and my time is my own. But, we chose to rent it in 2006 for a few weeks a season. We have some renters that return year after year and we love to have them. Maybe this is a place for you !

My husband and I stayed for the July 4th Holiday week (July 2nd - 9th). It was fabulous. The owners are very nice and our cottage was perfect. This place has the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in - it was even more comfortable then our bed at home. The weather was perfect for our stay. Our neighbors were a delight. There is a nice little kitchenette, which is great for me as I have food allergies and it is difficult to eat out a lot. One block from the beach -- perfect. We walked the beach every morning and evening. In fact, if you do not want to do a lot of walking (to shops and such) you can take the trolley for minimal cost. We found the people of York Beach (and visitors as well) to be very nice and friendly. We would definitely rent again. It gave a chance to re-connect -- with our day-to-day lifestyle we sometimes lose sight of what is important.

Location

From the Owner

It's the location that's special. It's just across the street from the ocean, and within walking distance to restaurants and taverns. You can surfcast from the beach...or the sidewalk when the tide is in ! The interior is very personal and warm, and ideal for a couple wanting to spend their vacation at the beach with no interruptions. The screened porch sets it apart as most cottages along the oceanfront have closed in areas that USED to be porches. You can sit there during a rain storm, watch the clouds, have a glass of wine, and just relax. Or, you can get a couple of steaks and grill them and have dinner outside. It's different.
