A great place to stay in Old Orchard Beach!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot think of a thing that I would change! Sharon and family are great to rent from, they were available for recommendations when needed but were never intrusive. The rental unit was supplied with everything that you would need for your stay including brochures for nearby attractions. It was super clean and organized. There is so much to do within walking distance, including a walk on the beach or a trip to the Pier. We would definitely rent this unit again, a wonderful place to stay in Old Orchard Beach.

A beach gem!

  • 5 of 5

The Sandcastle is amazing. A nice, clean rental unit that is stocked with everything you could possibly need. Steps to the beach and minutes to the shops and restaurants. Our family enjoyed every minute at Old Orchard and the owners were extremely friendly and helpful. We hope to return!

The Sandcastle - a gem near the ocean!!

  • 5 of 5

The owners of the Sandcastle take great pride in helping to make your stay enjoyable and relaxing by offering a clean and sweet place to stay and responding to any questions you may have! It offers all the amenities one may need in the kitchen. The bedrooms and bathrooms are also tidy and clean. You can sit on the second floor deck and enjoy watching and hearing the ocean with your morning coffee or open the windows to feel the ocean breeze and hear the roll of the waves. The beach is truly just steps away! A quick walk will bring you downtown to enjoy a variety of activities. Although close to downtown, the Sandcastle remains quiet and relaxing. I highly recommend the Sandcastle to anyone looking for a wonderful place to stay in OOB. Book a week and enjoy!!!

Everything you need in one tidy place!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay wasn't long enough! The Sandcastle is a no-fuss, all amenities included, beach house just a short waltz from the beach! The owner is friendly and accommodating and The Pier and all the attractions are in walking distance. The spiral staircase was a bit tricky with a toddler, but we made it work and it was worth it!

Lovely beach vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our beach vacation at the Sandcastle! It was perfect for our family, being 2 couples, especially having that second bathroom! The location was great, we so enjoyed sitting out on the porch with our morning coffee enjoying the view. The apartment was very clean and well looked after, very well equipped. The owners were very easy to work with, close by if there were concerns ( which there weren't), yet not intrusive. Overall, we have wonderful memories of our stay in OOB, and will definitely be planning a return visit! Thank you Sharon!

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Portland Jetport at 15 Miles Nearest Train : Amtrak Downeaster at 0.5 Miles Nearest Beach : Old Orchard Beach

Take wonderful walks on 7 miles of beautiful sandy beach.

Enjoy the sounds of the waves and the smell of the clean ocean air in your home away from home!

Short walk to Old Orchard Beach's Famous Pier and Palace Playland Amusement Park (open in summer season).

We are about a 40 minute drive to Freeport and about a 30 minute drive to the Kittery Outlets - lots of shopping choices here! Portland is less than a half hour drive. Approximately a 90 minute drive to Boston. Amtrak station in walking distance (station operated during summer season).

Miniature golf - Pirate's Cove within walking distance during summer. Public Golf Course nearby.

Funtown/Splashtown/Aquaboggan/Drive-In Movies/Movie Theater about 10 minutes away by car.

Maine Mall is 20 minutes away. Great for rainy day shopping!

During the summer you can literally park your car for the week and walk everywhere! Plenty of restaurants, shopping and fun to have all within walking distance!

Not too far from Ogunquit and Kennebunkport - where walking through the towns and shopping is a lot of fun even off season.

Ski resorts and snowboarding about an hour to an hour and a half away. Two options are Powderhouse Hill in Maine or King Pine in NH. Cross country ski right here at the beach if the weather permits. Jogging/walking on the beach during the winter is a beautiful experience.
