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 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' 'Windswept' and Concordville Manor 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.

Little pricey but adequate bed space.

  • 3 of 5

The house is adequate for what we were using it for. Hard to find and no real privacy but clean and things worked. Left it clean but when we arrived there was left over milk in fridge. We left it very clean, not sure if I paid for cleanup deposit but you sure had to get it clean to have a chance of getting my security deposit back. Hope I do!

Roomy, well-equipped and convenient.

Accommodates 8 people comfortably. Plenty of room to spread out. Outdoor space works well and can accommodate 10 for dinner. Not fancy but clean and comfortable.

We enjoyed our stay, right near short sands beach. Lots of room for our group to move around and pleasant outside area to relax. Had awesome dinner at Gaskin’s in town.

Great location, cozy space for all.

  • 5 of 5

The house has everything you need, plenty of beds and parking. Covered deck and patio is a great place to hangout. The only hiccup was the Wi-Fi, internet was very slow, but you shouldnt come to a place this nice to stay inside!

Also, York's nightlife was livelier than expected, and the beach was great per usual.

The shared backyard was a concern going in but the neighbors were friendly amd we had no issues. Our group agreed it was a great place and we'd love to come back another year!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback. We discovered the cable company had cut the line when repairing the house next door. Wifi back up to speed where it should be.
