Great location, well maintained, owners pleasant and easy to work with. Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

Very cleann tidy and comfortable. New appliances, central air a plus. Delightful and well maintained fenced in back yard with patio and patio set with large gas grill that worked well. Owners provide all essentials and more. No need to bring sheets, towels of any kind, beach chairs, rolling cooler, beach caddy, beach umbrellas, sand toys, bicycles and helmets, window fans, laundry detergent, fabric softener, dryer sheets, wooden drying rack, dish soap, sponges, tin foil, dishwasher detergent, night lights, paper towel, boxes of tissues and TP all provided! Everything in great condition-like new beach chairs and umbrellas. Kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, silverware, Keurig coffee maker, full refrigerator, microwave, small stove and oven. Kitchen is small and compact but has everything you need. Even chip bag clips and a flash light is provided. House sleeps 6 but is ideal for 2 to 4 people. We had 6 and because some had to sleep on tbe pull out sofa in the livingroom all had to go to bed at the same time. Also with a one cup coffee maker the kitchen was a traffic jam in the mornings.

Neighborhood is quiet and a quick bike ride to the beach. Beach is a half mile from house. Public beach access is a mile from house. We were very comfortable in the house and enjoyed all the extras that were provided. So nice to have a washer and dryer right there along with a dishwasher and range top with a built in griddle. We were very pleased with all Ocean Lure has to offer and can't wait to return.

Thank you for listing many of the amenities you will find at Ocean Lure. Daryl and I really enjoyed getting to know both of you.

Glad you got to use the bicycles, beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys and more. It was a sincere pleasure having your family choose Ocean Lure for your summer vacation. We look forward to your next arrival at Ocean Lure!

Relax and enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

This rental house was accessible to many activities in the area, making our vacation in Maine relaxing and fun. The accommodations were comfortable for our 5 adults and two babies. It had enough sleeping area and the washer and dryer was essential with two babies! We enjoyed the backyard eating homemade sandwiches in the sun. This rental offers the ability to eat inside or out. They also provide activities if you wanted to just stay at the rental - like croquet or grilling a homemade meal - as well as many things for an easy trip to the beach -bikes to get you there, sand toys to play with, and chairs to sit and relax on the beach! This is an exceptional rental - I would highly recommend it!

Cute property that was perfect for our little family!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was newly renovated and felt like our little home away from home. The new central air was lovely during the humid nights. We enjoyed having shades in the bedrooms that kept our little kids from waking at sunrise. Jeff had coffee for us to use and all the conveniences of a modern day kitchen. We used the sand toys and scooters and had a great time playing in the back yard. I look forward to staying here again someday!

Oh and a few doors down is Jakes seafood with delicious lobster rolls!

Awsome first visit to Maine!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed the stay! The place was perfect for our first visit to Maine and wonderful hospitality! It was like home away from home, there was not much that we had to buy for the week other than our food. It was nice with the Keurig, dishwasher, loved the big sink and had the detergent for the washer and dryer sheets for the dryer, tissues, towels, etc that it was very nice not to have to worry about the little things! Jeff was nice enough to show us around when we checked in and we were shown everything! Would definitely recommend this to anyone and would not mind staying here again in the future!

Clean, convenient, quiet

  • 5 of 5

Ocean Lure is surprisingly quiet and very well equipped with careful attention to cleanliness and thorough amenities. Although we didn't have a chance to use many of the amenities during our short stay, we particularly appreciated having access to grilling, bike riding, beach chairs, the lobster pot, new laundry machines, a smart TV and a backyard. Jeff met us to check in and provided a thorough walk-through, showing us where everything was located--down to the forks! We would stay again.

Located just east of Route 1, within walking distance to the beach, restaurants and trolleys. Enjoy the white sand beaches of the Southern Maine coast. Walk the Marginal Way or visit the Rachel Carson Refuge to take in some local bird watching. Relax at the beach, at a local restaurant or in the peaceful private backyard. If shopping is more your style, the outlets in Kittery and Freeport are just a short drive away. Local bars and theaters provide night time entertainment.
