Overview

Property Details

Updated: May 20, 2016
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

Summer is booking fast - so don't miss out on this adorable cottage house so walking distance from Long Beach and a block away from Short Sands, you'll agree this house is the PERFECT LOCATION.

Large bright enclosed front porch welcomes you to this classic beach cottage where you love to hang-out after a day at the beach.

The blue and green colors of sea glass welcome you home every day when you step into the bright living room, dinning room and both bedrooms cheerfullly painted ceiling and refinished all wood floors! Breezy beach-themed living room with pull out couch (if a friend stops by), tv and WiFi. Have a big meal in this charming dining room with built-in china hutch. On those rare crazy hot days, the AIR-CONDITIONER will help you cool off.

2 bedrooms with 2 full beds and single bed. With all rooms on one floor, this is a great option for all. TV and WiFi included.

This sunny kitchen has new ceiling, walls,and ceramic tile floors and new counter. We also now have a WASHER and DRYER.

The bathroom is freshly painted like soft sunshine where you can enjoy a shower or a bath in comfort.

The back entrance has been recently refreshed with a new floor and new sunny painted walls to make coming and going to the beach a breeze!

There is a small back yard where you can use our grill every night for easy meals. We also have driveway parking for 2 cars.

So close to the playgroup and the downtown shops and a few blocks from Long Sands Beach. Walking distance to Nubble Lighthouse. Just walk down the hill to enjoy all of downtown York Beach, with its bandstand, Ellis Park, playground, basketball courts, shops, and Goldenrod taffy!

We also own a larger a 3, 5 and 8 bedroom house which are available too. Please ask for info and pictures if you are interested.

Perfect location in York Beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this house two summers ago and we've rented the little home over the winters for my parents as well. Sarah and Herb (and their family) are the best and are so friendly, kind, and a pleasure to deal with. The house is so sweet and comfortable and in a perfect location between the two beaches and with Nubble Light within walking distance as well. It just takes a minute or two to walk down to the beach and the York Beach area is so lovely -- plenty of shops, restaurants, bakeries, and fun things to do at night, too. Much nicer to stay here and have the house to yourself than a crowded inn or B&B -- we had lobsters and wine on the porch on a summer night and could hear the band that was playing in the gazebo on the beach, it was so peaceful and fun. Highly recommended!!

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I with our 2 year old boy rented this property for the fist time this past 4th of July week. This house was exactly what we were looking for. It's location was perfect. A short walk to short sands beach and all the restaurants and shops, but also not so far from long sands either. The house was stocked with everything we needed and very clean. There were plenty of beds/sleeping space and I liked the fact that all the rooms were located on one floor for our little guy. The enclosed porch was my favorite spot of the week. A great space to start my day with a cup of tea or to take an afternoon nap. Sarah and Herb were always very responsive and so welcoming and kind. We booked the house as soon as we left for the following year and can't wait to spend the week with our soon to be family of 4 :-) We highly recommend renting this property.

3rd year in a row

  • 4 of 5

My wife and my two boys (2yo and 6yo) have rented this property for the last two summers in August. It is perfectly located and a very short walk to the ocean, park, shops and playground. We have already resevered for our third year in a row. Sarah and Herb (new owners) have always been in constant contact with us with any questions we have. They have already done a lot of renovations and it makes us even more excited to get back. The bedrooms are both good size. Big dining room and family room too. There is a fully enclosed porch with plenty of seating and windows on three sides to allow nice breezes to come in. We highly recommend renting this property.
