About Mike Giguere

After having vacationed in Oqunquit for almost 20 years, we decided it was time to consider buying a home in OGT. Our 2011 summer vacation included a significant amount of time looking at possible properties that we could purchase. While this involved a trade off which kept us off the beach a bit more than we had hoped, it allowed us to find this wonderful property, albeit in need of a bit of repair.

Mike Giguere purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Mike Giguere chose Ogunquit

When we spotted 'the Buddha house' as we named it because of the laughing Buddha statue the former owners had in the front yard, we knew that this property had the potential to be both a place for us to vacation and a home that could also be a rental property. The home's location amongst the trees offered the privacy and quiet we desired in a location that is a short distance from the restaurants and beach that draw us back to OGT each year. In December 2011, we purchased this property from its former owners and then set out to make plans to hire a contractor that would be able to work with us in renovating this property.

What makes this cottage unique

This 1929 cottage reflected the charm that is Maine although it was in need of a bit of renovation to return it to its full potential, we knew that this location was the right place for us. After the renovation effort that started in the Winter of 2012 and concluded in the Spring of 2013, the property is fully renovated.

The summer of 2013 was the first summer where the property was available for summer rental enjoyment. Those guests that stayed with us had a great experience as reflected in our seven 5 Star reviews

We hope if you do join us and that you find the house as charming as we do.

Wonderful location and great amenities

  • 5 out of 5
We just enjoyed 2 weeks at this house and found it just about perfect. With 2 small kids we always rent a house or an apartment on holiday and what was great about this place in particular was the kitchen. We cook basically every meal and it was nice to have a dishwasher and good quality pots and pans. Our only problem during our stay was a fix needed on the toilet but the owner's handyman came and took care of it within a few hours. The location is great, walking distance to the village center but on a quiet street. Key for us (because we were out with a stroller most of the time) was that there were sidewalks for most of the walk to the center of town.

Cozy, yet spacious.

  • 5 out of 5
This house was wonderful we had 5 women for a ladies weekend to Maine. It has a large living room and the house was very clean. We could walk to town and enjoyed walking even in the rain. I would definitely stay again.
The only disadvantage was having to bring your own sheets and towels.

Girlfriends 60th Birthday get away!

  • 5 out of 5
This is a lovely little cottage. We had a 3 night stay here and we had a wonderful time with everything we needed available for our use. There were 5 of us and 4 beds, and the owners supplied us with a large blow up mattress to use.
The set up in the home is very easy. There is an apartment downstairs with one person living there and it was fine, no problem at all, we didn't hear anything and I don't think there was any problems with us, and we stayed up late and laughing every night. We never did see the renter at all.
The bedrooms are beautiful and very large, with one King bedroom, one queen bedroom and one twin bedroom with 2 twins. The cottage is decorated so lovely and it really adds to the vacation. There is only one bathroom but we managed fine with that.
The walk to town is very quick and beautiful as the home is in the woods and private but plenty of other houses around it. It was too cold for the beach but it was very close by and a close walk too. The shops are fun and many have good quality shopping not just touristy T shirts shops. The restaurants are wonderful and many and easy to find.
The owners do not provide linens so you do need to discuss this with them and they are very helpful!
I definitely recommend this lovely home and the owners were the best!!

Cute Cottage for Family and their four-legged friends.

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I arrived to a very clean house. You could tell the owners cared about making your stay less stressful by having everything you need for the beach at the ready- less to pack for the trip to OGT! The kitchen stocked with the right tools to cook for my family and the grill worked well. The neighborhood was quiet and it was an easy walk to the center of town. Owners were very helpful during our stay and could not have been any friendlier!

AMAZING VACATION!

  • 5 out of 5
This property could not have been more perfect for our needs. We are a family of four plus one golden doodle. Upon entering the property our first impression was how immaculately clean the place was. We have used VRBO and have stayed in many places all around the world. The owner at this property has clearly placed maintenance as a priority and it shows. We only used two of the three bedrooms, so this place could have easily accommodated one more small family, or in laws, for example. The kitchen is well equipped, all we needed to supply was the groceries! Many amenities within walking distance, the beach is only a 15 minute walk away. The property also supplies some beach necessities such as chairs and boogie boards for kids. Finally, a couple of our other favourite things about this property: the screened in porch, the abundant DVD selection, the comfortable beds, and the dog friendly atmosphere (but clearly not impacting the cleanliness). Not a criticism, but to bring to your attention: only one bathroom, so if you have more than 4 people you will need to plan bathroom use accordingly. Also, you need to bring your own linens for the beds, the bathroom and the beach. We were not aware of this.

Owner's Response: We're glad that you enjoyed our cottage and your stay in Ogunquit. We also very much appreciate your noticing that we attempt to keep our property in good order. Our apologies that our listing was not clearer regarding not supplying linens and towels however, we're glad that we were able to loan you linens and towels from our private home just a bit up the road. We hope that you will consider our property the next time your plans take you to Ogunquit.

Great location but not a private house

  • 2 out of 5
Upon arriving, we discovered that there is a tenant that lives downstairs. Extremely disappointed as we paid and expected a private house. It was never disclosed on VRBO. My children didn't feel comfortable playing in the backyard because the tenants downstairs apartment screened in porch was right there. I feel that other vacationers should know that someone lives downstairs in this house and aren't surprised as we were upon arriving.

Getting past the lack of privacy, the house is in a great location. Very true to pictures and very tastefully decorated.

Owner's Response: Our property is very much a private cottage with a private entrance, separate driveway, patio area and outdoor grill solely for our guests use. Our property also includes what was our owner's unit that is now rented to local person that works in town. We certainly appreciate all feedback and will update our listing accordingly so there is no confusion in the future.

That being said, of the 30 plus groups that have been our guests since we began renting our property in 2013, this is the first time that this has been an issue.
