Great house

July 15, 2014

We booked our family vcation this year for York beach! Heather was wonderful to deal with during our planning! When we arrived, everything was great! Heather called us to follow up and make sure everything was okay! The house is lovely, lots of space for our family! The back yard was great for my children to play! They are located about a mile from the beach, so it is very relaxing to unwind and enjoy the quiet at the end of a busy day! Thank you so much Heather! We would definitely come back!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Will go back as long as they are renting!!
I have been going to York since I was a kid. i wanted to see my own children experience the same happiness I did. However, i didnt want a hotel experience for them i wanted "the best of both worlds". A beach experience during the day, Walking around a gem of a New England town in the evening, and a fire outside at night. Never thought it would happen. We found this house and it was more then i could have imagined. Beautiful house, anything you could need and more. The fire pit was perfect, 1 mile drive to long sands, playground for the kids in the backyard, and for the grown ups...a jacuzzi!! Our day was as follows. Breakfast, beach, lunch from the general store, home, jacuzzi, coconut rum, dinner, lighthouse or town, home and fire...perfect. Also, the owners could not be better to deal with. They are entrusting there home to you for a week, and could not be more hospitable. Even left us a smal jar of jam from stonewall kitchen! I could keep going on and on, i wont. If you are looking for a New England beach vacation, with a hint of luxury and camping....rent this house!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What time can I get in?
A: 3PM is the latest it will be ready. Because people leave the property as they found it, we are able to turn over pretty quickly.
We will call you on your cell when it is ready.
Q: How far is the beach?
A: End of our driveway to Long Sands is 1 mile walking. The beaches do have parking lots and metered spots. Short Sands Beach is about 1.7 and more suitable to park if you have small children.
Q: Can we cook lobsters at the house?
A: You can, but it is a lot easier to order them cooked for pick up at the top of our road. We will leave a lobster pot, but the water does take some time to boil and if you have a lot of people you have to work in batches! Save yourself the aggravation and bring them home ready to eat. A list of local places is provided in the unit.
