Guestbook comments from the manager

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-An adorable apartment across from the beach
average rating of 5.0 based on 23 reviews

Beautiful and comfortable hideaway.

  • 5 of 5

Roomy, yet cozy. Comfortable beds and comfortable furniture. If you stay in to cook, the kitchen has everything you need. A perfect place to wind down after a day of exploring.

Ideal location and easy to get to shopping and other site seeing. The ocean is across the street (easy to get up to watch the sunrise), and the beaches are within walking distance.

The owners are very sweet and helpful. Being nearby, it's nice to know they are available if you need anything.

I highly recommend Windswept!

Inviting, private, it was perfect

The property is neat, clean and inviting. Everything you need is provided. Our stay was amazing, water views, restaurants near by and the best host and hostess. We all loved meeting Gerry and Betsy.

It's a perfect location (across the street from the beach) with a great little yard for kids and adults! Perfect cookout area! Owners are so helpful and great! Can't imagine staying anywhere else!!

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.
