Perks for the Parents

A sunny home on the water in Kennebunkport with beautiful gardens, at-home gym and recently renovated interiors. It sleeps 10 + 2. The house offers a large yard with a deck and patio which is perfect for relaxing, dining or working alfresco. There’s even a hammock and an outdoor shower, so you can spend all day long outside. Parents will love the private balcony in the primary bedroom, which has adirondack chairs that overlook the marsh full of wildlife, flora and fauna - perfect for an early morning yoga session and cup of coffee.

Why Kids Love it

Kids and grown-ups alike will have fun on the sprawling grounds, perfect for soccer, badminton and other lawn games. The overlooking deck has comfy outdoor sofas for afternoons spent reading or playing board games. Younger guests will love searching for seashells at the beach across the street (kids beach chairs and towels are provided) or joining their parents for an easy walk or bike ride into town. Families will enjoy the outdoor firepits where you can listen to the frogs in the marsh as twilight approaches and toast s’mores.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 3 nights. The lead guest must be years or older. The house has an outdoor shower, treadmill and weights, super fast 5G wireless internet throughout the entire house and outside. Three working indoor fireplaces and plenty of firewood will keep guests of all ages toasty on chilly Maine nights. The hosts also have a pack-n-play, full sized crib, high chair and dishware for baby travelers. There is car parking for 5 cars - car rental is recommended.

About the Location

This house is secluded from car traffic and the hustle and bustle of Ocean Avenue, on a lovely private lane perfect for hopscotch and riding bikes. It’s situated in Kennebunkport's most central location. It’s just under 2 walkable miles (or 8 minutes’ drive) from bustling Dock Square where there are eateries, museums and the marina, and 10 minutes’ drive from charming Cape Porpoise. It’s just a few minutes’ drive from beaches (Goose Rocks, Colony Beach, Gooch's) and 5 minutes’ walk from President Bush’s Compound. There is ample free parking to be found within blocks of each beach. It’s 1.5 hours from Boston airport.

Accommodation Details

The home has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, set over 3 floors. The primary bedroom is on the 2nd floor and boasts a kingsize bed as well as an anteroom with armchairs, a fireplace, and a crib. On the same level are 2 guest bedrooms with queensize beds and the kids room with a set of bunk beds. A second king suite is on its own floor, upstairs. There's also a ‘playroom’ that has plenty of room for an air mattress. The kitchen will be the hub, with its well-appointed appliances and furnishings. Grab a high stool and eat breakfast at the marble kitchen island, or head to the adjoining dining room, perfect for more formal meals. Outside, there’s a formal outdoor table seating 10 with a grill, plus a smaller table on the deck.

Style Notes

Coastal classic. This warm family home is one of a kind. It was recently remodeled and is generously proportioned, with all-new top-of-the-line furnishings and lots of windows to let in the Maine sunshines. Subtle neutral tones are complemented with navy and coastal blues to complement the surrounding ocean location. We love the luxurious marble bathrooms, the rustic natural wood furnishings and that beautiful freestanding bathtub in the primary bathroom.
