Overview

About the property

Sleeps 2-8, Options for 10, Large open floor plan, child friendly

When my Husband and I completely renovated this 2 bedroom cottage, we envisioned you enjoying the ammenties such as a cozy private picturesque setting, open floor plan, beach theme decorated, centrally located to all area attractions, etc.. But really

what was equally as important, that you had everything you needed to have a great time! So we provide everything you need to enjoy your stay and tried to limit you having to lug your every worldly possession up or down I 95 worrying about whether one of those precious items might come flying off the back of your vehicle .

Our “Sea La Vie” cottage is so comfortable. Several area's to entertain; outdoor seating and relaxing; large open floor plan; plenty of counter space and living room area with an additional sleeping pull out couch and private bedrooms with a large modern bath with full laundry. We are child friendly with games bunk beds, port crib, swing, and highchair. If you require additional sleeping we also have an additional bedroom that can be included in the rental for a small fee.

Biddeford Pool beach is a short 3 miles away and private beach parking is available. Four miles away is the fun times of ocean park and Old Orchard Beach amusement area. While maintaining the quaint feel of a ocean side beach community complete with lobster boats, fishing, kayaking, biking along the eastern trail (10 miles long) etc. As far as dining… the possibilities are endless… Kennebunkport is 8 miles away with so many shops and restaurants. If you are craving for some fresh seafood and clams on a half shell, we have all you need to prepare that right here at home with some of the best seafood stores right down the road. Portland is full of waterfront activities and historical sights and is only a twenty minute drive. We look forward to sharing our place with you to enjoy the ocean area that we love so much!

About Cheryl Ouellette

My husband and I bought this beautiful property in 2013 after owning a condo in Ocean Park for 13 years. We needed to expand the size of our home since we have four grown children who are now blessing us with grand children and our family is quickly growing. It has been quite a project and we are enjoying every minute of it. We reside in the house located in the rear of this rental and will be accessible for any concerns and to help make your stay as fun and relaxing as possible. We look forward to speaking with you and learning about what would make your vacation the best it can be! 860-202-0267

A wonderful vacation in Biddeford Maine! At the beautiful Sea La Vie!!

  • 5 of 5

We had wonderful time at the beautiful cottage! Cheryl and Rick were perfect hosts and they thought of everything you could possibly need! They met us on the first day to go welcome us and go over everything.

Later in the week they even helped us when we had car trouble . Thier Daughter helped us they all go above and beyond to make your vacation perfect.

It is a very private location so nice to just sip cup a coffee on the porch to start your day. It is the perfect location close to beaches, restaurants , and anything else you would like to do. We hope to go back again soon!

Thank you Cheryl and Rick

Great Location for Exploring Southern Maine

  • 4 of 5

Rick met us when we arrived at the property and showed us round, explaining how things worked and a couple of the house rules. Otherwise, we were left to ourselves, with plenty of privacy even though the property adjoins Rick & Cheryl's own house.

The living/dining/kitchen space was much larger than we had expected from the photos, which was a nice surprise. Everything was very clean and pretty much everything we needed for our stay was to hand. The second bedroom would benefit from a chest of drawers for clothes storage, and being Brits, we missed having a kettle to make cups of tea, but other than these fairly minor points wise I can't think of anything that would make a stay at this property any better!

If you are looking to stay in this area I would definitely recommend the property.

beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

the house was very cozy and clean...it had all the essentials you need to make your stay comfortable. The hosts were very pleasant and offered several tips/recommendations for eateries and things to do w/ the kids. The location is great as the Portland, Old Orchard beach, and Kennebunkport areas are all close by and easy to get to...we would definitely stay here again if we come back to Maine

Perfect getaway in a quaint, beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Sea La Vie!! The house is beautifully maintained and so nicely decorated while making you feel like you are home away from home. Everything you need is here for you to use from the grill to the fire pit to items for the beach.

Rick and Cheryl were so welcoming and accommodating to our needs (a young child) and they were lovely to deal with. They gave us some wonderful recommendations for the area which did not disappoint. We hope to return again soon!

Perfect choice!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home has anything you will need. It was perfect for us as it was minutes from our family and we held a reunion for 25 people. Rick and Cheryl were the best hosts we have ever had, and we stay in the area every year. This year my daughter and son in law and 10 month old son were with us and the house was perfect We were a little worried about 4 adults in one bathroom but had no problems.

It is quiet, the A/c units were great and the kitchen area lacked nothing. If we all go together again this will be our choice for housing for sure. The decor is outstanding, you just want to stay for the month!!!
