About the property

Luxury Waterfront Year Round House with water on 3 sides. 4,250 sq foot, 3 level, 5 Bedroom, 4.5 Bath 1900's 'Summer Cottage.' 4 Fireplaces including 3 Gas Fireplaces and one Electric.

Stunning location with water on 3 sides. Watch the yachts come and go down the Kennebunk River from our 3 Season Wrap around porch. Or enjoy the views from our year round sunset - sun porch. Easy walk to Dock Square Shops or to stunning and quiet Colony Beach (both less than half a mile).

Top End Appliances including Washer and Dryer. Computer with Wi-Fi and Internet Access. Gas Fireplaces.

3rd Floor Master Suite with private bath, King Bed and Electric Fireplace. 2nd Level has 2 bedrooms with a queen bed each, 4th bedroom with twin trundle that can be made as a king and the 5th bedroom with King bed Gas Fireplace and AC.

Important Note: We do Friday to Friday 7-Night only stays from Late June until Labor Day. And Friday to Friday in Spring and Fall will always be the best value and only way to get published rates is with Friday to Friday stays.

Why do we charge more for more guests some ask... because we do not think it fair that 4 people should have to pay the same as 8 or 10 people. Plus we like only 4 to 6 guests as there is far less wear and tear on the house.

About Greg Burke

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

Greg Burke purchased this house in 2010

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.”

Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at 82 Ocean with a group of friends for a long weekend. This house has all the amenities you will need. The house is clean and tidy. Beautiful spacious home. The owners are easy to work with. They are organized and committed to excellence. I was very very happy with the rental.

A family reunion in HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5

We all had such a lovely time in your beautiful home. We had no idea how wonderful it would be to just sit behind the house and watch the sun come up (Gus and I are very early risers) or sit on the sun porch and watch the sun go down. We were mesmerized by the tidal river as well, never having experienced that before. The house provided all kinds of areas to be together and to be alone if and when desired.

We cooked almost all of our meals at home, although we enjoyed a lobster/shrimp feast at Mabel's, and fresh fish/cooked lobsters from Port Lobster. Our best meal out was at The Village Tavern in West Kennebunk- superb service and creative and delicious meals.

When we needed more towels, the "towel fairy" came and dropped off several more and Greg just wrote to let me know they are providing double the original number of towels for each room. That's responsive hosting!

Greg and Heather, you've done such beautiful work to keep the house a prize! Thanks from the 11 of us.

Fabulous Waterfront home and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

WE planned a small family reunion with 9 family members and we couldn't have been happier with the location of the home, the home itself, as well as the thoughtful hosts. None of the party members had ever been to Kennebunkport before and we had hoped we had chosen a great location. It was perfect ! The house was spacious enough that no one felt crowded and the outdoor patio area in the back was the perfect location to hang out and eat our Lobster that we picked up at Port Lobster - just a 5 min walk.The downtown was easily walkable as well - with many great restaurants to chose from.

The Front screened in deck area was another favorite hangout of ours and we enjoyed watching the boats come in and dock. All the bedrooms were lovely - not a bad one in the house!

If /when we come back to beautiful Kennubunkport again - this is the house for us!!!

Sunshine, Waterviews, Sheep, and Corn Hole!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? 82 Ocean had everything! And I mean EVERYTHING!! We arrived on a beautiful summer night, to find the front porch lit up by the evening sun. After picking out our bedrooms (my favorite was the third floor suite- great view from the loo), we sparked up the outdoor fire pit, poured a cold glass of rose, turned on the sound system, and officially kicked off vacation. Weren't we surprised to wake up and find sheep grazing across the way! Idyllic = water views in front and bucolic views out the back door. Proximity to town was perfect. I think I actually lost weight on vacation. A first. Morning runs to the Bush home, afternoons on the beach, late afternoon naps, early evening shopping, lobsta, cocktails, and puzzles on the front porch were pretty much de rigueur. Oh, and I can't forget the corn hole. Both littles and adults spent many an afternoon playing in the yard. Thanks for that...

Greg saw to our every need; so much so, that we only saw him once, and that was for the arrival tour. Our family is fortunate on so many levels, not the least of which was the opportunity to spend much needed time together in such an idyllic place.
