Description from owner

Drakes Island, Southern Coast, Maine, USA (Kennebunkport 8 Miles, Portland, Me 30 Miles, Boston, 60 Miles)

Accommodations: House, 6 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 12)

"229 Island Beach Road" is a 1950's architecturally designed oceanfront house located on a beautiful two mile stretch of beach, not found anywhere else in Southern Maine. You will relish beach walking to the inlet in the wildlife preserve, surfing and swimming, sipping morning coffee on the oceanfront porch and evening cocktails on the other; kayaking and bird-watching, and amazing sunrises and sunsets. Situated on a dead-end street, your family will enjoy bicycling, rollerblading, and a morning run through the nearby path to Laudhom Farms. Drake's Island is family friendly with a community house, playground, tennis, and basketball courts. Although Drake's Island is totally non-commercial, you will find convenient grocery stores, shopping, recreational attractions, and restaurants within an easy 5-15 minute drive.

Our spacious beach house boasts a huge living room overlooking the ocean, large dining area, well-equipped kitchen, oceanside porch and front porch. This well-designed and soundproof house sleeps twelve with three full baths. We offer two master suites, each located at opposite ends of the house, as well as four comfortable bedrooms, including a double bedroom, queen/twin bedroom and two bedrooms with twin beds. Off-street parking is available for four cars. The extensive lawns are perfect for croquet, badminton, soccer, and volleyball.

Boston Airport is 11/2 hours away. Portland Airport is 40 min away. Manchester 11/2 hours away. Less than 5 minutes to Wells train station and Maine Turnpike.

Please no smoking, pets or grilling on the porches. Must be 25 to rent. Must bring own sheets/towels.

Beds: 1 King Bed, 1 Queen Bed, 1 Double Bed, 4 Twin Beds, 1 Sofa Bed

“The Best”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2016

OUTSTANDING. Have been staying at Moody Beach with family for over 30 yrs and had to find alternative when rental was sold. Found this spot on Drakes Island and can honestly say that it was the nicest and most accommodating rental yet. 4 generations of our family stayed here (11 of us including 3 under the age of 3). With 6 bedrooms and 3 modern baths, it was perfect and literally steps away from the beach, which by the way was one of the better ones in the southern Maine area. Have already emailed owner to put us down for next yr!

As my family sits on the beach and we enjoy the ocean and the home we are staying in. This was a far better experience that we have had in the past. Thanks for sharing with us.

Wonderful home on the beach, perfect for a couple of families to rent, very spacious and the beach was amazing! The waves were great for boogie boarding and the weather was perfect! Highly recommend this rental.
