Reviews for this vacation cottage rental in Old Orchard Beach, Maine
September 22, 2013
The place is small. There is a mini frig. There is no porch no stove and no grill. The windows do not open and we asked the cleaning lady who said that they never open. There is an ac available. The other units have grills in the yard. I personally would not return as it didn't suit my needs.
The Unit Tara stayed in is one of 4 Cottages. All 4 are small cottages, each have 2 bedrooms. The one she rented is unit #15 and did not have a BBQ grille in 2013 (nor porch but had a larger bath and living room area. Windows in bedrooms and living room do open + has a screen door, All 4 now have gas BBQ grilles + 2 of them have a little porch. All but one have small refrigerators and all are small units. All have a cook top for cooking, no ovens but all have microwaves, cable TV and Wifi
