Wonderful memories at York Beach - great house and location!
We stayed in York at this property August 2019, we are a family of 4 with two kids ages 10 and 11. What a wonderful vacation.
First off, Sarah was excellent with communication from the moment I booked, when we arrived, while there and when we left. Couldn't be more pleased with that. It's always a little nerve-wracking when renting, so nice to have someone so attentive.
The house was perfect for a family our size! Big enough that we had our own space and didn't feel on top of each other but a nice, cozy cottage feel. The house was clean and had everything we needed. Having a washer and dryer was a HUGE bonus. We used the grill and little outside area too. Honestly, my favorite part of the whole house was the front screened-in porch, it was nice and roomy. I had my coffee out there every morning, so peaceful and we spent a lot of time out there after the beach and in the evenings.
As far as location, you can't beat it! We were close to everything. We only took the car out once for a day trip and other than that we walked or rode bikes. I recommend a bike ride to Nubble, down Long sands and then shorts especially first thing in the morning, gorgeous. Being so close to both Short and Long Sands was really nice. We did both beaches!
I would definitely rent from Sarah again. Thanks again!
Thank you for such a lovely review. We are glad you had a great week and were so happy with the house and its location. We would love to have you back any time.
Stayed at this cozy cottage for a few months and very much enjoyed my stay. Short Sands beach is just a short walk away and the nubble lighthouse is about a mile walk. The property is conveniently located close to the village shops, restaurants and groceries. Its only a few minute drive to Ogunquit and the Marginal Way area as well. The house was clean and comfortable. The owners were fantastic and took excellent care of me and made sure the house was ready upon arrival. I highly recommend the cottage especially for the summer months.
Thank you so much for the kind words and for taking good care of the house. We loved having you and would welcome you back any time!
Perfect location in York Beach!
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!!
Thank you so much for your kind words. We love that the house was a source of joy and great memories. It is always a pleasure having you or your parents at the house. Come back any time! Sarah
Just what we needed!
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
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.
Thanks so much!
We are thrilled to have your wonderful family back next summer. We are really excited about the renovations and can't wait to get them all done and have you see it all. We know your going to love it! Have a great Fall.
