Picturesque relaxing vacation

We had a large group (five families with babies and toddlers) that maxed out this home and there was plenty of room for everyone. There's three levels, little nooks and two separate stair cases that it's easy to navigate around all the bodies if you have a large group. The hammock in the back yard and front porch were my favorite places to sit, relax and enjoy the cooler weather. The home is across the street from a small beach with options to just walk the surrounding streets and neighborhoods. The beds were comfortable, very clean, enough bathrooms and showers, plenty of kitchen utensils, pots and pans (we cooked a feast each morning and night) and explored around town during the day for lunch time. Communication with the host was very easy and quick through text and she fully prepares you with the check-in procedure and how to operate/use anything in the home. The hosts have an abundance of experience with hosting! :)

5/5 Excellent

Very charming home in great location at York Harbor, Maine!

We have a wonderful time staying in your Home with our family of 10, plus a toddler and 2 infants! We all had places to sleep, plenty of bathrooms, and the kitchen was well stocked! There were fun yard games included at the house, and we were in a great location for the beach, or walking or running! The yard was beautiful and very comfortable to lounge in. Thank you so much a wonderful visit to the coast!

5/5 Excellent
