About Greg Burke

My wife and I purchased this In-town waterfront home in late Fall 2009. We redecorated the entire house and totally renovated the kitchen area and added a NEW 2nd Master Suite in the Spring of 2010. Be one of the few that gets to stay in this outstanding $1.5 million dollar home with water on 3 sides… call us now.

Greg Burke purchased this house in 2009

Why Greg Burke chose Kennebunkport

We moved to the Kennebunks in the early 1990’s to raise our 2 children in this idyllic seaside community. We lived on Ocean Ave our first couple of years in town and currently live across the river in Kennebunk. This is an outstandingly beautiful area with great shops, restaurants, beaches, boating… We look forward to moving into 82 Ocean ourselves eventually. Meantime we are looking for guests who will enjoy and respect the property as much as we do. This is definitely NOT your normal 'rental', it is a luxury home for you to enjoy and treat with the respect it deserves.

What makes this house unique

Water on 3-sides. 4 Fireplaces. You can sit on the sun-porch and watch the boats come and go on the River. Or on the back patio you can be on a secluded tidal cove and enjoy our Gas BBQ Grill and Outdoor Gas Fire Pit. An easy .4 mile walk to Dock Square to the north with its unique shops and restaurants or .5 miles to a quiet sandy beach to your south.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“A wonderful week at 82 Ocean, and our first trip to Maine. We visited lighthouses, sailed on the Pineapple Ketch, toured the Seashore Trolley Museum, enjoyed excellent dining at Mabel’s Lobster Claw, Bandaloop, lobster rolls from The Clam Shack. We even found time to build a lighthouses of Maine puzzle. We love 82 Ocean, the perfect location with spectacular views, great amenities, and the best hospitality.”

Magical Stay - Awesome Place - Stunning Setting - Convenient to Town

  • 5 out of 5
Had a great big girls weekend at 82 Ocean. We came for the Christmas Prelude weekend and really enjoyed being able to walk to Dock Square. We enjoyed the food and shopping and just relaxing at the house. Thank you for sharing this beautiful home with us!

Perfect home and location for a Kennebunkport vacation

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at 82 Ocean for 2 weeks this summer. The house looks and feels just as advertised - everything in great condition, with many special "extra" touches. The location is perfect- an easy walk into town and close proximity to a nice little beach and parking passes included for Kennebunk's main beaches. It is close to the resorts from which many boat trips (lobster tours, sailing, etc.) leave, and the owners provide lots of information and recommendations about the area for those interested. Owners were friendly, approachable and responsive. Our one small nit was that the house sleeps 12 (we had 8 one week and 10 the next), but really isn't fully set up for 12 -- there are not tons of dishes, the washing machine is (really) small and the pots and pans are small size -- so it is really better suited for smaller groups. But these are really minor issues - we would return again in an instant!

Owner's Response: Thanks Tara for the nice review - we are so glad you had such a great time at 82 Ocean and in Kennebunkport. Incredibly ironic that not 10 minutes prior we were talking to our housekeepers about upgrading the dishes and utensils in the kitchen. We will be sure to get 16 place settings when we do in the coming weeks! But then, we do love the smaller groups of 8 like yours too. We hope to see you again in "The Port." - Greg and Heather

Elegant, Comfortable, Perfect Location

  • 5 out of 5
Two couples shared this house, but it would be comfortable for eight people easily. All information in the listing, website, and in dialogue with the owner was accurate and complete. It was pristine clean with very detailed instruction on the operation of all appliances, doors, fireplaces, etc... We walked to everything including the local lobster shack, elegant restaurants, spas, shops, boutiques, boat rental, wine shops, etc...but at the same time felt isolated and private. This is a perfect spot for multiple couples or families with older, well behaved children. Of particular note is that the owner was totally engaged and responsive even though he was overseas at the time of our rental. The owner takes great care of the property and expects the tenants to do the same. You will want to take great care of this beautiful home, too.

An awesome getaway or family gathering home.

  • 5 out of 5
This marvelous home was the perfect setting for our family gathering. Between the superb location and extensive amenities, there was always more to do than time would allow. Whether it was watching the tidal changes in the cove from the beautiful and well equipped kitchen, enjoying the Bose surround sound, basking in the heat of the sun on the sun porch on a sunny 40 degree day, or running/walking throughout the area, we had blast. Great spot you have there Greg and Heather.

Best of Kennebunkport

  • 5 out of 5
We were three couples and two singles and had a delightful time in our week. Lots of room for a variety of different activities to be going on at the same time: quiet reading, TV, playing cards, chit-chat or just watching the tide go in and out. The kitchen was very complete and laid out with lots of elbow room. Bedrooms were generous and A/C worked well for us.

Excellent location - 10 minute walk to beach one way, and 10 minutes to town centre the other.

Furnished and equipped to a high standard (contrary to others' comments, there are air conditioning units in most rooms). Good water views to front and rear (river and creek). Photo of front of house is slightly misleading - there is a road between the property and the river front, although this did not detract from our enjoyment and we had a very good holiday.

Owner's Response: Yes Niki is right - Ocean Ave passes right in front our house on the way to the Bushes. Please see our location map where this is clearly shown.
