About the property

This has to be the Best looking house in Old Orchard Beach! Our Beach house is so close to the Ocean you can smell the salty air off the water and you can see and hear the waves crashing. This 3 story home is ideal for families and friends reuniting and spending either a long weekend together off-season or a week together during the height of the summer season.

It is extremely easy to get to. Our Open floor plan makes for a very relaxing visit. I highly recommend watching the video we recently uploaded so you can take a tour of the house, the patio, back yard. and the main living area inside the house on the ground floor.

There is an additional seating area off of the dining room with a comfortable couch and 2 swivel armchairs with a large gas fireplace making his area very cozy! Newly installed, Italian, country style outdoor dining table with pergola awning above offering afternoon shade. Beautiful, large balcony on the 2nd floor offers a gorgeous sea view, while the quaint 3rd floor balcony has a more intimate feeling for two chosing to star gaze over a glass of wine. From here you can clearly see all of Old Orchard Beach, Ocean Park, Biddeford Pool, Pine Point, Scarborough Beach, & Cape Elizabeth. Our beautiful fenced-in yard faces the quiet road - A landscaped stone pathway leads from the large patio to the gate that you access for the Beach. Outdoor patio furniture includes sun beds and table and chairs, gas fireplace & grill with comfortable sofa and chairs. Built-in hot tub - seats 10, outdoor shower, kids climbing-frame.

About jason field

My wife grew up in the next town over from Old Orchard Beach. She spent her summers as a child on this beach and dreamed of owning a property nearby. We have 4 children between 4 and 10 years old - they absolutely love coming up to Old Orchard Beach each summer. We all have fond memories. Enjoying the beach, walking into town - either Old Orchard Beach or Ocean Park. Two polar opposite towns; one loud and busy, the other a sleepy, dry town. We stay here throughout the month of August. With some returning guests we only have one or two weeks in summer of 2018 available.

jason field purchased this house in 2008

Why jason field chose Old Orchard Beach

Most tourists who come to Maine in the summer return each year. The beaches are breath-taking. You can walk for miles and really let your mind wonder! While the water is not comparable to the temperatures of the water in the Caribbean, the wake is mild and child-friendly, most of the time...

The beaches are wide enough and long enough that you're not trampled on by other tourists. They are clean and easy to walk on. There is also a newly built broadwalk for easy beach access.

What makes this house unique

The ocean views are spectacular. The garden / yard is so formidable that there are days where you won't want to leave it to go to the beach.... Inside it is so comfortable. The open plan style throughout the house is just so family friendly - you always know where your kids are playing. We built this 2nd home to relax and enjoy our holidays -we hope you will treat it as it was your own home and enjoy its rich, new features.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We used this property as a work retreat for our highest level management team. The house was beautiful and had more than enough space for all of us to have a very comfortable stay. The sound of the waves crashing while enjoying the amenities of the back yard was exactly the type of atmosphere we wanted. We were able to cook, network, socialize and relax in this awesome location. We all agreed we would most definitely be interested in returning to this property again in the future.

Beautiful house for a big family

  • 4 of 5

This rental house is perfect for a big family and there are enough rooms and beds for everyone. The backyard is a nice area to hang out if you don't want to head to the beach which is about a 3 minute walk. We didn't get to utilize the patio dining table outside because of the mosquitoes but I can see that as a great dining spot while having a bbq with the family.

As much as I loved the house, for some reason, the refrigerator wasn't cold enough even after adjusting the temperature. This wasn't so much of an issue because the house has a refrigerator for wine/drinks and that's what we used for our perishables. The first floor does not have any air conditioning and that's where we hung out the most so it was a bit uncomfortable. The 2nd floor has air conditioning but it's not strong enough since it kept escaping down to the first floor. The 3rd floor was the most comfortable because of door that separates that section off so the air conditioner worked the best.

Great location and beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely great. Home is in great shape and layout is thought fully designed. Location is a short walk to the beach; but leaving the property itself is not necessary as it has everything you could need to entertain. Thanks for a great stay Jason!

Gorgeous house!

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing. It is ideal for a family or a larger group. There is so much space. It is very much a home away from home with all the nice amenities. The backyard provided the perfect little oasis to relax with the hot tub and the fire pit. One can see the beach from the house, and all we had to do was walk there! It was very relaxing to hear the waves crashing at night. Jason and Chris were fantastic hosts! If I’m ever in the Maine neighborhood again, I will definitely look to stay here.

Don't stay here! Owner showed true colors when hot water heater broke

  • 1 of 5

This house looks very appealing in the listing, and if nothing goes wrong during your stay, you will probably enjoy it here and write a nice review. After reading about our experience and the owner's response, you’ll likely decide to stay elsewhere…we wish we had!

We saw the owner's true colors when the hot water heater broke on the first full day of our 7 day stay, which began Saturday, July 14. The water was cold enough that we couldn't bathe the young children without first heating up water on the stove, and it was unpleasant for adults to shower in. The property manager Chris also agreed that the hot water was a problem, and he called the plumbers on 5 separate occasions during our stay - Sunday, 2x on Monday (it was fixed and then broke again), Wednesday and Thursday. During these visits from the plumbers, Chris did not stay for the whole visit so my dad remained at the house, which was not how we envisioned spending our vacation.

Due to the issues, my father called the owner and requested a partial refund. The owner's response was very rude and unprofessional - he said that our party of 11 could leave at any time, and then he actually hung up on my dad! Unbelievable! In correspondence shared with VRBO Customer Service, the owner flippantly characterized our lack of hot water as an "inconvenience" and an "intermittent issue", and implied that it was July so hot water wasn't really that necessary anyway.

The other major problem we encountered during our stay included a broken "On" switch on the dryer that gave my husband an electric shock, causing his arm to tingle for a few hours due to the high voltage that runs the dryer. A dryer repair was not even attempted during our stay. The owner has tried to deflect from the problems with the house by implying that WE were the issue…I think we were just the unlucky ones staying here when these issues occurred.

We have opened a formal complaint against the owner through the VRBO team, as we want VRBO and future potential renters to be aware of how this owner conducts himself if anything goes wrong. We waited to do that until we got our security deposit back, as we saw previous posts referencing some difficulties with getting deposits refunded.

Anything can go wrong in any home at any time - we understand that. How it's handled though makes all the difference. Vacation time with family & friends is precious! For your next vacation, don't take your chances here...stay elsewhere.

Owner's Response: This family was one of those families that no matter how much you bowed down to them to appease them they felt entitled to a free vacation. And have requested this at my summer home. Oh no, correction just a 50% discount! Upon receiving a phone call from the father of the initial renter we had a plumbing company at the house within 2-3 hours. Additional parts were ordered and installed promptly. As to the dryer, it continues to operate without fault. The water has been operating perfectly well and the hot tub remains at a constant 101 degrees setting. I will not be welcoming this family to stay at my beach house again or any other property we advertise. It is a shame but there is always one bad apple!

Funtown splashtown USA is a fun day out. It is located in saco - the next town over. They have both a water park and amusement park.

Pirates cove - mini golf is located within a 0.5 mile walk - and is a lot of fun!

Ocean park offers a nice quiet alternative to old orchard beach and is just a 0.5 mile walk to get to. It offers a family restaurant and ice cream parlor, souvenir shops, library, tennis courts, shuffle board, etc..
