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.
