Wonderful Family Friendly Rental!
September 14, 2015
My family did a extended family vacation of sorts with 3 generations together at this house. The location is perfect for families with small children. Safe area, not a lot of traffic, mostly quiet(with the exception of the occasional motorcycles). You are a corner house, but it's not nearly as busy as you may expect. I loved the family feel to the neighborhood, but also being less than 15 min away from the more active Old Orchard Beach environment. Local seafood place, Huots was fresh and delicious and close enough to walk to. The beach was only a few minute walk down the street and then another few minutes down the rock wall to access the sandy part. And the beach was amazing. Never crazy crowded, really family oriented, clean and friendly. We sometimes left our stuff, walked back to the rental house and returned later...with NO problems. The house was great... clean, nicely decorated and furnished. The beds are comfortable, there's fans in every room, and though the steps to the second floor are steep, they have a good railing. My family loves to cook, and the kitchen was incredibly well stocked. There was not one tool we needed and looked for that we couldn't find, including pretty good knives. The living room is huge with tons of windows. We spent almost no time in there because the weather was so nice outside...but it is a great room to gather a large crowd together. The patio/deck is a good size with a nice table/chairs and grill. It's quiet to sit there in the morning with coffee and enjoy the peace. The yard while small, has what you need. A fire pit for smores, a great heavy duty, wooden tree swing, enough lawn to throw a ball around or set up a kiddie pool. The parking was great too. You can fit several cars in the driveway, and a couple along the street if you have visitors. The only downfalls...no outdoor shower, and the trash (which seems unavoidable). It's picked up on Monday's and your rental starts Friday. So there will be a good bit of it from the previous tenants, especially given the size of the house. I found we could have used another barrel. Overall, I highly recommend this house. We had a wonderful stay and hope to return again if we can coordinate everyone's schedules again!
