Yearly Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home is ideal for our family vacation week, we've stayed the past two summer's and are returning again next summer. The location is perfect one block from short sands. Close to all downtown activity, but far enough away so you're not in the middle of the activity. With a large family we always have lots of room, comfortable beds and the owners are very easy to work with the house is always so clean.

Thank you Sarah & Herb

Family celebration!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family celebration and enjoyed this house very much! The beaches are very close. The house was clean and had plenty of space for all16 of us. Beds were comfortable and kitchen was well stocked with all the equipment we needed. The owner was very flexible and provided all the information we needed. We enjoyed activities in Portland as well as Portsmouth. Would definitely recommend as a get-away.

Cozy Cottage in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year at Short Sands and our first at this location. We loved this property and have rented it again for next summer. It is very clean and comfortable for our very large group. 12 adults and 5 young children. The location is perfect. A very short walk to the beach and downtown. The kitchen has plenty of room and the large dining room worked great for us. An especially neat feature is the outdoor hot shower which is great for young kids coming off the beach. Our grand kids are already counting down the days to next summer's beach time!
