I grew up in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, two towns over from OOB. Graduated from CEHS 1974. Live in Connecticut now, but still love the whole Portland area and the ocean especially. Salt air is good for the soul.

Steven Nielsen purchased this bungalow in 2003

There's just something about this house. Warm, cozy, it just says 'relax.' The porch is great -- always a breeze.

Lots of interesting built-ins. Corner lot provides plenty of parking.

Overall, the stay was pleasant. The house was moderately equipped with everything you could need, but I kept feeling like we would run out of paper goods before the time was up (paper towels, toilet paper, etc.). Also, bring your own coffee filters and kitchen sponge! Air conditioning was on main floor only and not adjustable. Upstairs had none. One bedroom had no fan. The location was good; a short walk to the beach and to the pier. My favorite was the ample brochures, personal recommendations and candles.
Owner's Response: We will address the shortage of supplies!

Accomodations had everything you would need. Steven was very responsive and helpful about the home and the area. The children loved it as they were close to both the beach and the pier, and everything was in walking distance. We are looking forward to going back and enjoying the home again next year!

We had a great stay in Old Orchard Beach. The home is exactly what you would expect. Comfortable king bed, relaxing screen porch, nice size kitchen and small but serviceable bathroom. The house is close to everything. Lobster - yep, pizza - yep, ocean - yep. Prices in OOB are very reasonable and several great places are just a short drive away. Owner was very helpful and prompt with any questions we had. We would definitely recommend to friends and family looking for a relaxing vacation on the coast of Maine!

We loved the house. Within walking distance of the beach, the pier and the Seaside Pavilion, we seldom drove during our week in OOB, enjoying our chance to walk throughout the day. Well-furnished, our family appreciated the amenities, especially the old-time video game! We'd definitely rent again.

OOB Home Away From Home

This was our second stay at this beach house. It was a marvelous place to hang out for a week of R & R. Steven & Lyn's place is a very nicely appointed home with a warm and welcoming feel to it. This beach house has character and it speaks to my soul. I love the decor. It instantly puts you at ease. Having a fenced yard and that wonderful sun porch gives you a secure feeling and privacy. The sun porch was our gathering place for breakfast, rest and reading space before dinner and evening cup of tea spot. We love the location of the home because it is away from the crowds but close enough that you can walk to the pier any time you feel like it. This location is also great for getting in and out of OOB for day trips without having to go through the massive pedestrian traffic down by the pier.
Paul & I would highly recommend this place and we are definitely coming back.
Trudy & Paul from Nova Scotia, Canada
Owner's Response: Cool. Thanks, T &P, and thanks for leaving the house sparkling clean. Come back soon!

Consensus best beach in Maine, 7 miles of white sand. Loads of things to do and see.

20 minutes from Portland -- spend one day in the Old Port district! Great shopping, restaurants and waterfront cobblestone streets. Portland Sea Dogs (Red Sox AA minor league).

30 minutes to Cape Elizabeth -- scenic Portland Head Light, the most painted and photographed lighthouse in USA, at Fort Williams and Two Lights and Crescent Beach State Parks.

45 minutes to Freeport-- home of LLBean.

Other Activities: miniature golf (Pirate's Cove), kayaking, harness racing (Scarborough Downs). Seaside Pavillion (summer concert venue operated by Salvation Army -- they book great events!)

Baseball: Rookie League plays at The Ballpark in OOB, Portland Sea Dogs (Red Sox AA affiliate).

Golf: Dunegrass Country Club (public) is better than average, 5 minute ride. Biddeford/Saco Country Club (semi-private) is challenging (state high school championship course) and 10 minutes away. Dutch Elm Country Club in Arundel is about 20 minutes and a little easier course.
