About sean matthews

My wife and I are avid beach goers that love the Southern Maine coast.

sean matthews purchased this house in 2013

Why sean matthews chose Southern Coast of Maine

I've been vacationing in the Kennebunks since I was a child. My wife and I have spent many summer weekends at a family house in the area, and longed for the opportunity to buy a place of our own.

What makes this house unique

We bought this house because of it's great location and space. We think it's a great place to entertain family/friends, while being close to the beach and local attractions.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

It was centrally located to everything, yet far enough away that we were able to enjoy peace and quiet. We had plenty of room for all of the adult children and having more than one bathroom was PERFECT :)

HIGHLY recommend if you have a large family

So nice, we stayed twice :)

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our second weekly stay at Penwood. We loved our visit there last summer so much that we decided to return again this summer. With 4 adults and 4 children, there was plenty of space and we never felt cramped. Our children loved playing in the yard and on the front porch. The home is very well kept and set in a quiet residential neighborhood which is very close to the Kennebunk beaches and close to restaurants and shopping in downtown Kennebunkport. We love the way the house is decorated and how everything is updated and in perfect working order. On both visits, everything was sparkling clean when we arrived which is so important to me when renting someone's house-kudos to the cleaning crew! We look forward to staying at Penwood again soon. It truly feels like a "home away from home". Thank you to Sean (the owner) who is a pleasure to deal with.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a family vacation with our 1 year old daughter and her grandparents. The home is beautiful and extremely well kept, located in a quiet neighborhood. We would take walks around the street every morning and sit on the front porch with our coffee. The rooms are all great sizes and provide enough living space so we were all comfortable. We were impressed with how clean and organized the home is and we were thankful that they provided amenities such as beach towels to their guests.

This home is centrally located and provides easy access to all the shops, beaches, restaurants, etc. with a short drive. The home owners were delightful to work with and they are genuinely kind people. We look forward to renting this home again for our family trips to Maine!

Clean, spacious, & convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Visited Penwood this Spring with my boyfriend and two other couples. Really enjoyed the house and found it convenient to Mother's/Kennebunk Beach as well as Kennebunkport. Bedrooms were good size and we didn't feel like we were on top of each other with two couples staying upstairs and the other in the basement bedroom. Dining room and eat in kitchen allowed us to cook some meals at the house as well. Would recommend this property to anyone looking for a Southern Maine getaway.
