What a beautiful home you have! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Windswept. It was lovely to have all the amenities of home just steps away from the ocean. Even though I grew up relatively close by, the breathtaking views and peaceful sounds of the waves coming to shore never cease to amaze me. Our family felt quite at home here. Thank you for sharing your cozy and extremely clean beach oasis with us. We hope to see you in 2015!

Windswept...our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 has been staying at Windswept in York Beach for 3 years now. The "apartment" is decorated beautifully, extremely clean and has all the amenities we need. Betsy and Jerry are wonderful hosts and so very accommodating. While vacationing, we often invite relatives and friends who are local to the area to join us for a barbeque in the backyard so it now seems as though my extended family feels quite at home at this location.

If you are looking for a quiet spot where you can wake up to the sound of the ocean, stroll along the beach and take in the local shops and restaurants, this is the perfect spot for you!

Wonderful week on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Windswept this summer and it was a wonderful week. The house was clean and neat the back yard was perfect for our two children. The beach was right across the street. We spent many mornings walking the beach with our coffee. The owners were wonderful to work with they went the extra mile to make sure our stay was perfect

Our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Coming back to Maine to visit family is wonderful, but for the past two summers it has even been more special because of our stay at Windswept in York. The location is just gorgeous! The rental space is immaculately clean and provides all the amenities of home. Betsy and Jerry have thought of everything. Our family of 4 will continue to return to this lovely quiet oasis which has provided us with memories we treasure.

Clean Comfortable Relaxing and Private

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Betsy and Jerry for such a comfortable relaxing stay. Everything is just as described. Had everything we needed for our wedding get away. It was very nice to meet you both and was so sweet of you to stop down on

Wedding day to offer your Well wishes and Congratulations. We felt we had the privacy we needed with the attention to our needs if we had any. The accommodations were clean comfortable and roomy for four people. Definitely recommend this rental. Beach is rocky and not recommended for people with physical disabilities but we knew that going in and more beach is available further down Long Sands. Definitely will have to have that glass of wine sometime. Enjoy the remainder of summer with your family and we will see you again!
