About the property

6 Bedrooms, 2 Kitchens, 2 Livingrooms, sleeps 8-10

This home has been enjoyed by family and friends for many years. We decided this year to make it available for everyone! It is situated on a small street just 3/10 of a mile from Long Sands Beach. While perfect for a family of 8, it is also suitable for 2 families to come together as the downstairs portion of this split level has it's own kitchen, living room, full bath, laundry room, 3 bedrooms sleeping 4 and a separate entrance.

The main floor offers 3 bedrooms sleeping 4-6 and all have new window unit A/C's, a large family room with A/C, eat in kitchen with outside deck off the sliders, and a full bath.

Enjoy a family game of wiffle ball, volleyball or badminton in the yard while grilling on the Barbie!

Long sands beach is just a short walk from the house. It offers a mile walk in a fine sand beach where you can often find shells, sand dollars, and ocean life. The Nubble Light House is just at the other end of the beach were you are often bound to find breath taking views! Short Sands Beach and downtown are just a short walk from the light house and it hosts an arcade, playground, restaurants and shopping. York is also the home of Yorks Wild Kingdom which is a Zoo and amusement park.

Perfect choice for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a family reunion in York. The location was less than a mile from our relatives' home so it was very convenient for us. It allowed us to be together and yet we each had our own bedrooms and gathering areas. The house was in a residential area but close enough for all our activities. Because the house was furnished completely, our staying there was made very comfortable.

Excellent location for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Family members arrived from California, Rhode Island, Vermont and Massachusetts. This house was a perfect fit for all. With the availability of two separate living quarters, we were able to situate the family with children in the lower portion of the house. This afforded the other adult members some quiet times in the upper living quarters. This also made it easy for the children to access the great yard area behind the house. Those who wanted exercise strolled to the beach which was easy walking distance. Beach chairs and toys were available.

This property afforded our family a great vacation and I highly recommend this rental.

Wonderfully relaxing family time!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and well furnished. There was plenty of room for our family and the yard was a great size--plenty big enough for playing "Kan Jam"! Great place!!

Top Notch Rental

  • 5 of 5

This is a comfortable house for all ages. The owners obviously take great care of it and it is exceptionally clean. Four of us stayed here for a weekend get-away. We enjoyed coffee on the deck before heading to the beach nearby. We loved having beach chairs to use since we hadn’t thought to bring our own. The kitchen is fully functional and has everything necessary to make meals. We also ate out at some great restaurants.

There are several bedrooms between the two floors. Since there were only four of us, we didn’t even use the first level, but discussed how great it would be to come back with our families at a later date.

The large yard is great for kids and the washer & dryer help to get the wet towels & bathing suits ready for the next day. All the comforts of home!

Looking forward to our next visit!

Great property with lots of space, walk to beach

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a family reunion and it was perfect for visiting and spreading out when we needed our own space. We had plenty of room in the upstairs kitchen to cook while the kids enjoyed the big back yard. There is a beautiful deck overlooking the back yard where we sat outside at night and enjoyed the smell of the ocean.

The kids enjoyed having their own space downstairs to watch TV with their own kitchen for snacks. There are 6 bedrooms and 2 baths which made it great for privacy sleeping.

The washer and dryer came in very handy after a day at the beach and a week vacation.

The house is well equipped with everything you could need. The kitchen has plenty of dishes, glassware, pots, pans etc. There are plenty of shower and beach towels. The shed has plenty of beach chairs and a beach umbrella that was so easy to set up and take down (and was sturdy in the wind).

The location is close to many great restaurants and two beautiful beaches. There is also the zoo and amusement park for the younger kids.

At night we walked to one of the restaurants, which is on the water, to get ice cream and sit on the rocks overlooking the beach.
