About Anita French

We live just over the border in New Hampshire but love to play at York Beach. We formed Periwinkle Properties LLC when we purchased a collection of three houses in the spring of 2012 and added one more in January 2015 right next door, Windswept. Periwinkle combines our interest in fixing up older houses with time at the beach. 'Hidden Treasure', 'Breakwater', 'High Tide' and 'Windswept' are all part of Periwinkle and available for rent individually or as a package.

Anita French purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Anita French chose York Beach

This house has a great outdoor space and is a located on a scenic walk to Short Sands. The renovation is a wonderful blend of old and new construction and very spacious for large gatherings. There are glimpses of the bay from several upstairs windows and the sound of the buoy bell will lull you to sleep at night. Set away from the road, it is quiet and charming.

Girls Weekend Reunion

  • 5 of 5

My college friends and I have gotten together at least once a year for the past 10+ years, and this year we chose to stay in York ME. We had a great stay and Anita was a top notch host and so responsive to all our needs and questions including restaurant recommendations! We wandered the amazing beaches complete with walkers and surfers and scuba divers and checked out the local light house, toured the local shops and haunts of York, and checked out Stonewall Kitchen's amazing display of everything cooking related. Cozy and scenic and classic Maine! Weather was amazing for the last weekend in October, and lots of the lobster locales were celebrating their last weekend of the season-- Mmmmmmm....Yum! We cooked in one night and the kitchen is very well equipped! The house was very comfortable with lots of space to spread out. We never had the big screen TV on (it is there!), but spent eves and mornings chatting with the fireplace aglow catching up on the day's events and planning the next day's adventures. Lots of window space to see the rising and setting sun, and the backyard and quiet neighborhood would be ideal for kids! We had a 2 year old in tow who can testify to that! Such a relaxing weekend! Highly recommend this getaway spot for low key relaxation, escape and fun! Thanks, Anita! ; )

Wonderful and cozy property with GREAT location.

  • 5 of 5

Windswept is a wonderful property with everything you need for a nice vacation. There is plenty of parking, close to the water and downtown, all amenities (open yard, grill, patio, pet friendly, small yard) with a great location to downtown and the beach. Anita is great, very quick and clear communication makes everything much easier. The fireplace is GREAT!

Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Although we were not in the house for very long, we found it to be quite comfortable and very clean. We used 3 of the 4 bedrooms for a two night stay during a family wedding weekend. The kitchen was quite stocked with all that you would need. We used only the coffee maker, but there was also a microwave, toaster, Keurig etc. The hutch was loaded with dishes, glasses and mugs.

The rooms had great views of the ocean. They were stocked with clean sheets and blankets for our use.

We all said we'd come back and stay when we can enjoy all that York has to offer!!
