Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for returning our damage deposits so promptly. It was so nice to be able to meet you and Jerry. We had a wonderful time in your comfortable home. We very much enjoyed our vacation in Kennebunkport. We found everyone so nice and polite. We all loved Goose Rocks Beach, Dock Square, and the local restaurants and shops. We wish we could have stayed for many more weeks. We look forward to planning our next vacation at Cape Porpoise and hope we can contact you when we do! Thank you again for making our stay so comfortable. We give this a "5 out of 5"!

We had a great trip and we will be back.

  • 5 out of 5
We flew from CA to Boston, rented a car and then arrived after 10 pm that night, and found that everything was set up to welcome us to the lovely house. The beds were made up for us, lights were on, snacks and beer were provided and the key was just where they promised. We were very comfortable for 9 days. Owner is very nice to deal with and very responsive to questions, etc.

The house is small enough to be cozy and large enough to feel spacious. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything including plates, silverware, glasses, etc. I made coffee every morning and drank it in one of the nice blue stoneware mugs. The best morning experience was opening the front door to take in the cool breeze in the many trees and the dappled sunlight on the front yard. We don't get much of that kind of thing at home. We used to stay in a large inn near downtown but this house was so much better, more private and lots of space, plus we would have paid twice the price at an inn.
Extreme peace and quiet.

The house is decorated in beach style with lots of fun things everywhere. I loved the lighthouse themed quilt on my bed. The two TVs worked out great for us, I got to watch the US Open while my husband watched baseball. Lots of channels!

Our normal routine was to drive to the Arundel Diner for breakfast. They make the best French Toast. Right across the street from the diner is a daily flea market, with lots of interesting items and friendly Mainers. The weekend markets are the biggest. We also love to just drive all of the wooded roads and find new ways to get back to the house. There is a great produce stand on the way to Arundel with lots of fresh berries and home made baked goods.

We like to drive around and stop here and there and be back to the house by 3 or 4 pm. We reserved that time to sit out on the front lawn in the adirondak chairs with a beer and let the peaceful feeling wash over us.

We always walk through Kennebunkport at night. Lovely historic homes everywhere on tree-lined streets. We also visited Goose Rocks Beach to sit and watch people. We like to drive on Ocean Avenue out by the Bush compound and look at the beautiful ocean front houses and wish we could live there.

Almost every night we go to Nunan's Lobster Hut about half a mile or less from the house. I always get a whole lobster and enjoy cracking and eating the claws. We also like the Fried Clam Strips at Allisons.

Cozy Kennebunkport Home

  • 5 out of 5
We rented this cozy home for our annual Family Reunion at Goose Rocks Beach. From my first communication with Sharon and through the entire rental process, she was most helpful and wonderful!
We found her home to be clean and welcoming upon arrival! The window ACs, wide - screen TVs, dishwasher, and washer & dryer all were great amenities & added to our vacation comfort!
One amenity I especially liked were the night tables on either side of the bed and a digital clock in each bedroom!
The home's proximity to Cape Porpoise, Goose Rocks Beach, and Kennebunkport were great! However, we also enjoyed the backyard deck and the comfortable Adirondack chairs in the front yard!
We enjoyed this home very much, would definitely recommend it and we look forward to returning soon!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Kathleen. What a great spot your family chose for a Reunion!! Particularly, love Goose Rocks Beach with it's white smooth sand, the ability to walk and enjoy the breeze off the ocean and to go across the street to the Tides Inn for either dinner or hors d'oeuvres and drinks! Yum! Thank you for the lovely review and for being a very wonderful guest! Congrats on the new grandchild, too!!

Great location, perfect accommodations!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at this property the week of July Fourth and it was a very pleasant experience. Sharon was a pleasure to work with via email and once we arrived, the property was clean, bright and welcoming. The Cape Porpoise location was perfect. Close enough to Kennebunk center, but even closer to the nearby restaurants, general store, ice cream shop and gourmet food shop in the area when you don't feel like fighting crowds.

The property has A/C in the rooms, but as it turns out, we didn't even need it on the hottest of days because of the nice breeze that comes through.

Another plus is the full size washer and dryer - pack light!

We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us. Congratulations to you and to hubby on the birth of your adorable baby girl. Be well and come stay in Kennebunkport again soon. So much to offer. Maybe next year when "S" is over a year old, you three can try the scenic lobster boat tour. It's lovely and a great way to see the area from the water. We try to take advantage of it every other year. It is very pleasant and relaxing. Hope to meet you 3 next summer. Thanks for your kind words. We are very happy that you got to relax and enjoy your trip!!

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here for a week in September. The house was the perfect size for us and our dog Max. It's in a great area of Kennebunkport, close enough to everything and in a nice, quiet neighborhood. The house is a quick drive to the beach, and so close to Dock Square! The house was clean and very homey. We had a great time and hope to return next year!!

Perfect Summer Vacation House

  • 5 out of 5
This house was the perfect vacation rental. It was comfortable and had every amenity you would need for a family. The owner was extremely accommodating (she bought an air mattress for one of the kids staying in the house) and the house was in perfect condition. It was a short distance to restaurants, shops and the beach. It's located in a quiet neighborhood of Kennebunkport. I highly recommend this spot for any family or a group of friends who are visiting Kennebunkport. We couldn't have been happier with our experience here. I highly recommend it!

We were verypleased with our stay

  • 5 out of 5
We completely enjoyed our stay here. There was a total of 6 of us on this trip..there was plenty of room in the house for everyone, the house was clean and we enjoyed the deck for a little quiet time in the morning or having a meal in the evening. There was plenty to do nearby, from shopping to beaches or just taking in the beautiful scenery. Sharon was very pleasant and easy to work with from the time I booked the rental right through the end of our trip. I would highly recommend this for a pleasant stay in Kennebunkport and certaianly would stay here again!
