Jeff and Kristen live with their four daughters in the suburbs of Boston. We have roots in Massachusetts and Maine. Jeff graduated from US Naval Academy so I guess you could say he has had a love of the ocean for a long time!
Kristen purchased this House in 2012
Why Kristen chose Kennebunk
The southern coast of Maine has been part of our life since we can remember! We have such fond memories of watching the sunrise with our siblings and cousins and shucking clams for my grandmother to make homemade clam chowder. The long days spent on the beach were always followed by cookouts, tag, and catching fireflies. We honestly don't think we could be happy without being near the ocean. Something about it gives us energy and peace! We purchased this house as an eventual retirement home. It is a dream come true for us to have a home near the beach in Kennebunk:)
What makes this House unique
This house made the most sense for us because it has lots of bedrooms and bathrooms and a room over the garage that we will eventually refinish for even more company! We love spending time with family and friends at the beach, and we wanted a place that had the space for them to stay with us.

Clean Comfortable House Close to Kennebunkport
We had a great week in Kennebunkport staying here. There was a ping pong table, air hockey table, a couple of bikes & a foosball table to keep the kids busy while at home. They also enjoyed a rope swing outside. There was plenty of room & the bedrooms were clean and comfortable. There are enough bathrooms to get several people ready at once & they are separated far enough to give everyone privacy. They have a great amount of information about the house, town and activities in the house easy and convenient to access. The only 2 minor inconveniences were bringing our own linens (we don't have a king size bed or a single, so no correct sheets to bring for those beds) or renting them for several hundred dollars for the week. We brought our own, but it was not ideal. We also didn't find a kid friendly path to walk to town. It's a 5 minute drive and parking was not an issue, but it was congested. We drove each time we went as some streets on the way had no sidewalks. With that said, I would enthusiastically recommend this house. The cost and comfort made it a value in our mind. We enjoyed it.
Thank for the feedback. We do our best to make our guests aware of the need to bring their own linens. An unfortunate and costly lesson we learned early was the toll placed on 'common' linens provided for guests. Stains, damage, misplacements--we simply couldn't keep up. We will continue to seek out more convenient solutions than families bringing their own linens and highlight the bed sizes so folks can be prepared.
Good news on the sidewalk situation--the town of Kennebunk is in the midst of extending sidewalks out to Bennett's Sandwich Shop. It will likely take about a year, but guests will be able to utilize the new paths in short order.
We are pleased that you had an enjoyable stay and hope to have you back in Kennebunk in future years!
House was beautiful with everything you could need. Beaches were close by and great waves. We did take a trolley tour of Kennebunk and kennebunport, and ate out a few restaurants. I would recommend this house for extended families, plenty of room for everyone.
Hi Kathy, Thank you so much for your enthusiastic review! Look forward to hosting you again in the future! Kristen and Jeff
We loved this house!
We had 11 people all sleep comfortably for the week! The house is a perfect location from the beach and also to Kennebunkport. The kitchen is well stocked and the House was found in clean condition when we arrived. Our kids loved the rope swing! Mother’s beach was the perfect area for us with 4 kids. There is a playground, tide pools and of course the ocean. They ran and played all day long. We couldn’t have asked for a better week. We will certainly be back!! Thank you Kristen!
We are so pleased that you and your family were comfortable and could spread out. Thank you for your review! Don't hesitate to contact us for a future stay.
Beautiful home! So cozy and comfortable!
Thank you, Laurie! So happy you enjoyed our home again. Thank you for being a repeat guest! Kristen
Spacious an Clean
It's a beautiful house within walking distance of the beach and downtown Kennebunkport. There's a well equipped kitchen and plenty of beds for a family (or as in our case, shared family from different states) My only complaints would be the necessity to rent towels or pack them (this makes it difficult for those who fly and don't drive with the family for a week at the beach and towel rental was around $300 for the 3 days we were there), the road noise when sitting out and enjoying the beautiful backyard (with fire pit!) and it would have been nice to have a starter roll of toilet paper in each bathroom(discovered too late - haha), and maybe some little soaps in the bathrooms. Kristen was very easy to communicate with, cooperated in getting us into the house to coordinate with flights, and again, the house is cozy yet spacious and very clean and for those who come for a beach stay, the parking tags that come with the rental are worth quite a bit and a very nice touch! (There are also games like a ping pong table in the garage, videos, books, and 3 TVs with cable for those who may have a rainy day or two.) I definitely recommend anyone considering it to stay here.
Thank you so much for your positive review and suggestions! I am sorry there wasn't toilet paper available as it is expected that our housekeeper refill all bathrooms during the cleaning. I will be sure to follow up. We are considering offering a more affordable option of renting linens through us directly. Again, thank you so much for your review! Kristen
We were so close to all places we wanted/needed to visit. House very clean. Owners very nice and communicative.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review and for your nice comments!!
A summer vacation in Kennebunkport speaks for itself! This rental is within walking distance to 'The Port' and Kennebunk Beach (Mother's Beach). Enjoy the sun, surf, collecting sea shells and when you tire of that (ever?), hit the Port for some great shopping and restaurants. Don't leave without having some lobster and steamers!
