About Pamela Chase
We are a family of 4 (kids ages 15 and 13). The house is well equipped with basketball net, 8 bikes, 5 boogie boards, beach chairs and a wagon, toys, DVDs, books, etc. The back yard is great for badminton or soccer. Wild raspberry bushes in the back are at their peak in July. We love to entertain on the back deck that comfortably seats 12 while the kids bike, roller blade or skateboard up and down the driveway and out on the dead end street. We are the last house on the street, so there is never any traffic and very quiet. After dinner, we love to get an ice cream and check out the fireworks or walk around Paradise Park (a nearby camp ground situated around a large man-made pond). It is the ideal way to spend a week.
Why Pamela Chase chose Old Orchard Beach
This is one of the few houses that sleeps 12 people comfortably. There are 5 bedrooms and beds for everyone, no pull out sofa beds or futons. The living room is 30’ long with lots of room to spread out. The dining room and back deck both have a comfortable table that seats 12 easily. A screened in front porch that runs the width of the house is perfect to read and relax. WiFi, washing machine/dryer and fully equipped kitchen make this house super comfortable. It is bright and airy with a great breeze. We love our beach house and keep it well maintained.
What makes this House unique
Huge dining room and outside table that seats 12 comfortably, room for everyone. Large, paved driveway 100 feet for small kids to bike, roller blade and skateboard. Close to the beach (4 min walk), but quite at night. Comfortable furniture and beds. The house is well maintained and well stocked. Perfect for family vacations or reunions. We have over 8 kid's bikes, Barbie electric car,boogie boards, sand toys, books/movies/games. Very family friendly house!

Spacious house with good location
Top selling points: plenty of sleeping space, place for us all to eat at the same table, brand new washer and dryer, great outdoor shower, location, bikes, boogie boards and an awesome Amish scooter for renters' use.
Cons: floors were filthy and upstairs carpets were stained, only one pot lid in the entire house, only one air conditioner (on an incredibly humid week).
Pamela is a gracious and responsive property owner. I hope she can find a better weekly cleaning service and invest in a deep cleaning of the property once a season.
It was a super fun week, great weather and a great environment.
Spacious, convenient family home
Our family vacation in OOB was a fantastic one largely due to this great house. The rooms are spacious so there was plenty of room to spread out both inside as well as out. Loved the large tables where the entire family could eat together. The garage is full of toys for the kids which they enjoyed using on the long driveway and yard space. The convenience to downtown made it an easy walk to the beach and amusements. I would recommend this home especially if you are going on vacation with a large group. It was a great find!
First timer at OOB
Because we had never spent a family vacation at Old Orchard Beach as well as rent a house from someone we didn't know, I was a tad bit uneasy. The process couldn't have been easier and the house was just perfect! Spacious, clean, comfortable and close to everything. Pam was easy to reach and was nice as can be, making me/my family feel welcome in her home! I hope to start a new tradition for my family here at OOB.
Thank You for sharing your house with us. We were a large family and had plenty of room. It was extremely hot so the house was rather warm for sleeping. We didn't realize there was only 1 air conditioner, our mistake. The walk to the beach was great and short. We never moved the cars.
