Beautiful Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in Goose Rocks beach for about 8 years now with our in-laws and 3 kids. This house is by far the best house for our family. It is spacious, beatuifully decorated and literally steps away from the beach! Our children ages 5, 8 and 11 were able to walk independently to the general store and play outside while we relaxed on the porch! I strongly recommend you stay here! We can't wait to do it again next year!

Perfect vacation home for the family

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this property. The house is beautifully laid out with a modern kitchen and plenty of room. We stayed with our 3 children, ages 6, 5 and 1. My 5- and 6-year old loved staying in the "secret" room in front with the twin beds. The front porch, second floor outdoor porch and yard also make this a great place for entertaining and hanging out outside. The quick 2 minute walk to the beach (just down the street) can't be beat. It was very easy to travel back and forth with the kids in tow. Goose Rocks Beach is a gem, no heavy waves, very quiet and not busy at all (and we were there for the July 4th holiday)! I'm hoping to book our stay soon for next summer. Overall, a fantastic house!

Great house so close to beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed staying at John and Patti's house! The house is clean, bright and updated with lovely, tasteful beach decor. It was the perfect size and layout for our extended family. There was plenty of space in the common areas to gather together yet there was also enough space for everyone to take time for themselves as needed. The house was easy walking distance to beautiful Goose Rocks beach. It was very safe and even the kids (ranging in age from 8-14) could easily come and go to the beach on their own. The cute general store was also a short walk away. Overall it was the perfect place for our relaxing family vacation and we look forward to returning in the future.

Great Family Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful experience at the house! There was plenty of room for our family. The kitchen was great and was well equipped for cooking and grilling. There was even a great selection of DVDs and board games for everyone to enjoy. The Goose Rocks Beach area is beautiful. The beach was a very short walk from the house and there is plenty to do in the area. The yard around the house was also a great place for the kids to be able to play. We would highly recommend staying at this spacious, clean and beautiful home!

Can't wait for next summer!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fantastic week at John and Patti's beautiful beach house, and the first thing we did when we got home was to reserve the house again for summer 2017. The house was a perfect fit for our large group(8 adults and 2 children),very close to the beach,and a great place to relax on the porches and enjoy just being in Maine. I can not recommend this house more strongly.

Great family beach house

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying at John & Patti's home for our family vacation in Kennebunkport. The house was spacious and inviting. It worked well for us as we were a family of 6 with one toddler. Plenty of bedrooms and space for all of us to feel comfortable. The home was clean and just a short walk to the beach. Neighborhood was friendly and nice as well. We wished linens were provided, but with the washer/dryer in the house, it was easy to keep on top of things. Overall, a great home!
