Description from owner

This beautiful coastal cottage at 5 Walnut, is a sister cottage to 3 1/2 Walnut St. which is set behind this cottage. Located streetfront, it has views of the beach and ocean from the front porch and living room. Totally redecorated and painted inside and out for 2008, it is quintessential beach cottage. Like it's sister cottage, it is steps to the beach and about 5 blocks to the pier and downtown Old Orchard area. The huge wrap around porch is a perfect place for breakfast and coffee and sunset cocktails or just relaxing while looking at the beach. The cottage is able to sleep 10 if needed since there is a pull out couch in the living room as well as a daybed. Adult and family fun abound in this charming town, restaurants, rides and mini-golf await within walking distance. Miles of beautiful beach right outside your front door! Enjoy.

Beds: 3 Double Beds, 2 Twin Beds, 1 Sofa Bed

About the area

Old Orchard Beach is in Southern Maine along the beautiful coastline which stretches the length of the state. It is 15 to 20 minutes to Portland, one of the most beautiful cities in the Northeast. It boasts more restaurants per capita than anywhere in the United States. Portland has a beautiful waterfront area filled with restaurants, shops and is home to the beautiful Portland Art Museum. A little farther North is Freeport, the shopping destination of summer visitors with its anchor LL BEAN and a host of other outlets. Old Orchard continues to be a family or adult favorite with its Pier shops, Famous boardwalk fries and of course, thrilling rides and waterslide. Mini-golf and a public golf course nearby add to the many activities found in the area. Kayaking the marshes and biking miles of rail-trails are also very close.

Reviewed 31 Aug 2016

Nous étions parfaitement bien situé et la maison était fort agréable! Par contre un lit simple de moins que mentionné dans l'annonce.Le porche était fantastique on y a passé tout notre temps en dehors de la fabuleuse plage. Une semaine fantastique vraiment et on a eu une surprise il y avait du Wi-Fi et ce n'était pas mentionné dans l'annonce.

“Amazing House, Perfect Location”

Reviewed 21 Jun 2016

This house is absolutely perfect! You will not find a better house, with a better location, for this amazing price! I couldn't have had a better weekend- I would 100% stay here again. Ceseli was very accommodating; she was always available over the phone to answer any of my questions. The house is literally 100 steps to the beach, you can see the sand from the beautiful wrap around porch. And the house is huge and so nice inside- it easily accommodated my entire party. It's located just outside the center of town so you have some privacy and quiet, but close enough for a pleasant 15 minute walk into town. I parked my car at the house and didn't have to worry about until I left.

“Best way to end our summer”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2015

The cottage is cute and homey, we loved the beach decor. We spent most of our time on the porch in the rocking chairs taking in the ocean. Old Orchard Beach was quiet during the week and by Friday the town came to life, what we would expect for after Labor Day time frame. We loved the fresh lobster and Portland was a fun city to visit, great bars and resturants on the piers. Great times!!

Our recent trip to the East Cosat was wonderful! The staff of Absolute Rentals were helpful and pleasent! If you have a family and need a place on the beach to stay this is it! It is CLEAN and CLOSE to everything! An easy walk to the peir or to Ocean Park. We would love to keep it our little secret but its too good not to share!

“something for everyone”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2009

This cottage has little touches that make it feel like home. There is something for everyone, mostly within walking distance. In addition to the gorgeous 7 mile beach there is the Pier, arcade, rides, shops, wildlife refuges, restaurants, and water parks. We ate most meals on the wrap around porch. A great find!

“Lovely beach getaway”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2009

This is a well-maintained house with all the comforts of home and everything you need for the beach. We enjoyed evenings on the porch watching the waves, home-cooked meals, and cozy movie nights in the front room. The beach is *right there* so we could come and go throughout the day as we pleased. And it was easy to get to Portland as well as a nearby amusement park and a 12-screen movie theater.
