“Exceptional property”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2016

Beautiful setting that provides the best of all worlds - peaceful cove, harbor view, walk to town, beautiful beaches. The house affords spaces for groups to gather as well as quiet corners to settle into and read a good book. Indoor and outdoor spaces are relaxing and peaceful. Owners are very accommodating and genuinely interested in providing superior service. We were very pleased with our experience.

Owner's reply: So glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again soon ;)

“great spot”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2016

Had a family of 9 adults and 3 kids an there was plenty of room. The water views were awesome and the closeness to the beach and the town was unmatched. The home felt very private yet It was nice being able to walk to water front restaurants. Booth bay town is a fantastic place to spend a week exploring as well.

Owner's reply: Thanks Craig for your nice comments and we enjoyed meeting you all... just one correction - we are in Kennebunkport ;)

“Excellent.”

Reviewed 5 Apr 2016

Excellent stay during non-peak-season in Kennebunkport. April weather is a roll of the dice (we had nice weather for cycling and beach strolling one day, followed by a snow storm the next day). Most restaurants were open. The Home is excellent: large & clean, in a great location. Owner really cares about the place, and it shows. We were 4 couples, just enjoying a getaway weekend. Definitely would stay again.

“Wonderful Friendly House”

Reviewed 29 Dec 2014

This house was wonderful--spacious, clean, comfortable. The views from the many windows were lovely. The fire-pit table on the patio was the center of a wonderful evening of wine and conversation. It was conveniently located to walk to a beach or to the center of town. We would love to return next summer.

Owner's reply: Thanks Artie - we look forward to having you back. Cheers - Greg and Heather

“Kenneybunkport family holiday”

Reviewed 31 Dec 2012

We loved this condo for our family of 4 generations. the common space was perfect and the location was fantastic. The sun porch was great even in the cold as it warmed up in the day and we could all eat breakfast giving us additional space. We have spent many years in Kenneybunkport as an extended family and this location could not be beat to get us to our familiar places in town. We could walk to the beach, walk into town and restaurants. We had a wonderful vacation for ages 2-91!

“"Hard to please", but 82 Ocean did it!”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2011

We had an incredible experience with a family reunion at this gorgeous Kennebunkport property. The location is amazing and walk-able to lots of activities. Newly remodeled and handsomely decorated, it hit the spot!

“Wonderful”

Reviewed 2 Jun 2011

My friends from around the country get together a few times during the year. We are always looking for great homes in great locations. This is definitely one of them. It was decorated nicely, very well taken care of, and the owner was very pleasant. We look forward to staying at this house again.

“Beautiful Sunday River Home!”

Reviewed 4 Dec 2008

Ten Peaks was an outstanding home to stay in while our family skied at Sunday River. The Burke's are very accommodating and have a beautifully decorated and well thought out home! The drive to the mountain took all of three minutes and the view from the house was breathtaking! Couldn't have asked for more!!

Dear Heather & Greg,
82 Ocean is just beautiful, the views far and wide.
We were fascinated by the ever changing 11-foot tide.
We do hope to come here in the future so near.
We wish you a very happy New Year.

-The Bastl Family, California, August 2011

Your great house, gorgeous views, and beautiful weather made for a perfect vacation in Maine. The gourmet kitchen was especially incredible. We loved watching the 11 ft tides in the back cove and the sunsets from the front porch. Many wonderful memories.

You set the standard for hospitality, great home, beautiful setting at 82 Ocean!
- Ramsden, Hampton Bay, NY, April 2011

You have provided incredible "staging" for the ebb and flow of tide. As much as there is to do in Kennebunkport and the area, the beauty of your home, as a whole, and your amazing kitchen with the cove view, provide a wonderful ongoing show - a show which allows the calm to roll in and the tension let go.
- Thank you, The Stakel Family April 2011

We absolutely love your home and its location. The view from the kitchen overlooking the cove is so beautiful. Coming from South of France to Kennebunkport was a great change of scenery.

We also enjoyed very much the festive atmosphere in Kennebunkport for Christmas. Walking to the beach on New Years Day was a treat!

It was a really great family vacation at such at memorable place. We may come back for we would love to see fall in Kennebunkport and stay in your beautiful home again.
- Merci beaucoup, Suzy and Jean Pierre, Albi, France, January 2011

Visiting Greg and Heathers house was like living out a chapter in a novel that I had only imagined possible for the rich and famous. However, Greg and Heathers prices for what was offered made everyday government workers such as ourselves live out a spectacular dream. Amongst my most memorable moments in this gorgeous house was sitting outside on the patio deck with the fireplace facing us on one end of the table and a Maine lobster on the other. It was kind of a majestic site with a cool mixture of fall air coupled with the warmth generated from the fire just footsteps away. The outside bose speaker system playing easy listening smooth jazz only enhanced the already special setting. The kitchen offered everything possible from utensils to appliances. The counter space avails itself for those cooks particular to needing area to spread out. Speaking about spreading out... this house offers that indeed. It took me four days to find the other three ladies I traveled with as the home was so huge. LOL. Good thing though, we all got along that much better. All in all to sum it up in a nutshell, the beds were comfortable, the house unbelievably special and clean, the location right in the heart of everything, and well most importantly the hosts Greg and Heather ...as they were unbeatable insofar as being available by either cell phone and/or in person during every step of our journey. I hope to someday live out a few more chapters at 82 ocean avenue. A big thank you for a great experience.... Debbie D. Boynton Beach, Florida Sept 2013

Kennebunkport is a treasure. Greg & Heather could not have been better hosts and the house itself is perfection. Thank you for all of the special touches. We hope to come back.

We had a wonderful time in Kport. Your home is absolutely lovely - perfectly situated between the water and town! Thank you for sharing your beautiful place with us.
- The Douglas Family, Georgia, May 2013

Dear Greg and Heather, We found 82 Ocean to be the perfect location to enjoy a wonderful Christmas prelude weekend. We appreciated the spaciousness and cleanliness of your home, and the beautiful fireplaces located throughout. You provide all the amenities of a hotel, with the charm of a quaint Bed and Breakfast. Thank you for a great stay!
- Best, DJ and Marissa, CT, December 2012

You made everything wonderful! The house and its amenities exceeded our expectations. It was so nice that every bathroom came equipped with toiletries and a hair dryer, because these "little things" can take up a lot of packing space. Our entire family loved it from our youngest, to the grandparents, everyone enjoyed themselves and would love to return one day. The house is lovely and so cozy. Don't change a thing.
- Katie Fucich, MI, Thanksgiving 2012

Thank you for providing us with so much great info about your town, shops and dining. Kennebunkport and your decor really set the mood for our holiday and the spirit of Christmas. This was one of the best vacations our family has had and we didn't even have fancy drinks with umbrellas. We all kept saying "When are we coming back?" Thank you for sharing your amazing home and magical town!
