The recently updated 3-bedroom, 1-bathroom guest house comfortably sleeps groups of 5 travelers seeking a relaxing vacation in southeastern Maine.

    THE PROPERTY

    Bedroom 1: Queen Bed | Bedroom 2: Queen Bed | Bedroom 3: Twin Daybed

    The spacious guest house features an open floor plan with hardwood floors and charming furnishings. The large windows found throughout the house allow sunshine to flood each room on sunny days.

    Grab a book or magazine and lounge in the sunroom, which has two comfortable seats and a plush couch. The large windows look out over the manicured lawn and garden.

    After a day of fun at the beach, kick back on the sofa in the living room and watch your favorite DVDs or shows on the flat-screen cable TV.

    There’s no need to leave the guest house for your meals! The fully equipped kitchen features all of the appliances and utensils to whip up your favorite food in your home-away-from-home.

    You're sure to sleep well at night in either of the 3 well-appointed bedrooms! Two bedrooms offer queen beds, and a brand-new third bedroom features a twin-sized daybed.

    THE LOCATION

    There’s no better way to spend sunny Maine afternoons than at one of Kennebunk’s fabulous beaches. Guests staying at this charming house are within walking distance of the white sand.

    Walk down to the tidal pools at the end of the street to enjoy the refreshing water without all of the sand! These tidal pools are also great places to find seashells for a unique souvenir of your visit.

    If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, go for a hike through Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge. The dense forest and beautiful marshland are the perfect places to spot local wildlife.

    Dine out at waterfront restaurants by the ocean and watch the lobster and fishing boats come into the port each evening.

    We stayed in the apartment above the garage and it was very nice. Property manager didn't respond to 2 emails that I sent but did get back to me on a different topic by phone a few hours after I called her. Kitchen didn't have any any saran wrap, aluminum foil or plastic bags and Tupperware lids didn't fit containers.

    Cleanest unit ever!

    Reviewed by: Beverly G. on

    We were impressed by the cleanliness of the unit, the accuracy of the listed description and the roominess. We would recommend this to friends, with the caveat that if they plan to cook they bring along plastic wrap or baggies for little items. Everything else you would need is provided. The walk to the "beach" is longer than expected- you can get to the rocks in a mile, but to walk on a beach is much longer. Beach Passes were provided so we did use them and drove to the beach, It was fun to see the dogs running around- they are allowed until 9 am and then they all miraculously disappear! We enjoyed watching them and then having a long beach to walk on ourselves. We had perfect weather, a fabulous meal at The Pearl and breakfast at Morning in Paris- just wonderful and only a mile away! Reviewer location Bonita Springs, FL

    Bright, roomy property with all conveniences - shame about the beds

    Reviewed by: Joanna R. on

    Comment:

    Overall this is a wonderful property! It has great modern conveniences, particularly a beautiful kitchen & bathroom. The decor & furnishings are very tasteful but lack comfort - living area chairs & beds were disappointingly uncomfortable, & the bed linens did not match the high quality of the rest of the property. The location is fantastic - close to beach, main roadways & Kennebunkport village. We would have happily stayed longer & continued to have a wonderful time at this property. One point of annoyance I dislike is paying a decent cleaning fee of $100 for less than 2 days, yet there are strict instructions to take trash out to dumpster, strip beds, towels to bathroom etc etc otherwise there will be an additional $100 fee! Seems rather inhospitable when we need to be out by 10am with toddlers in tow!

    I just returned from my New Years Eve stay at this charming home. Upon entering this home the first thing I noticed was how clean it was and though it looks exactly like the pictures the pictures do not do this home justice!! This house is decorated so beautifully; it is incredibly warm and inviting. Just the perfect space. It is stocked with everything you need for a home away from home. The kitchen is wonderfully stocked with everything you need to make a quick meal or in our case a nice home cooked dinner. There are extra blankets in case you get chilly and the bathroom has everything you could need or want.

    We were looking for a quiet get away and this was just that, even though the house is on a main road you hear nothing. It is a very quiet residential area. The location is perfect only minutes from downtown Kennebunk port, beaches and shopping. I am looking forward to our next stay at this fabulous home. I will definitely be staying here again hopefully soon! Thank you very much for opening up our home to us.

    We enjoyed a peaceful, quiet Thanksgiving holiday at the Guest House! We love that it is new, spotless, and filled with natural light. We never heard anyone while at this serene retreat - and that's exactly what we wanted! We slept like babies on the cozy bed. We love the close proximity to our favorite trails, beaches, restaurants and shops. As an added bonus, we drank-in the gorgous architecture in Kennebunk and Kennebunkport. This was the perfect place for our get-a-way, and we can't wait to return!

    Beautiful place that was extremely clean. Great location with a relatively short walk to the beach (although a little bit longer than we would have liked with two young children). Very cozy place with nearly all amenities you could ask for; a washer/dryer would have made this the ultimate Kennebunkport vacation HQ, but is totally manageable. Easy drive into Kennebunkport and also to Wells and Ogunquit. We recommend the Lobster boat tour (Kylie's Chance), St. Anne's Church (although Sunday services are over until May, Seaside Trolly Museum (the kids loved seeing and riding the old trolleys) and the Lighthouse scenic boat ride out of Ogunquit. Rococo ice cream is top notch, although the food beyond that was underwhelming at all the places we went to (and expensive). Bring your bug spray, because the mosquitoes are plentiful and aggressive! One of the true beautiful spots on this planet!

    Cozy, clean, good location, quiet, terrible pillows, you pay for the cleaners - you do the work

    Reviewed by: Sean C. on

    Comment:

    Overall it was a nice stay at this guest house. It was very clean and perfect for 4 people in terms of room and places to sit and feel comfortable. You have a big driveway that is in a great location to go into town or head down the street to the beach. There is no outdoor space of your own to relax in which would be great even if there were a few Adirondack chairs on the side of the house. There is no grill so any type of cooking has to be done inside which is unfortunate since you want to be outside. It was annoying that twice saturday morning cleaners showed up and one even opened the door to our apartment because they were at the wrong house and were yelling up the stairs for people that were not associated to our party. That is unacceptable and we were lucky we were there to tell them they were at the wrong house. Also what is the point of paying the cleaning fees when you are required to do all of the cleaning? You have to strip the beds, put the used towels in a pile, run the dishwasher, take the trash out, separate the recyling which they say they will ping you on if you don't. What did I pay for a cleaning service for? That should be on your dime if I have to do all of that. Its illogical to me. Otherwise beside that rant it was nice but would rather stay somewhere with outdoor space. Oh and bring your own pillows because they are TERRIBLE. Thanks!

    Managers Response:

    Thank you for your constructive feedback. We are glad you overall enjoyed your stay and we value your feedback and have taken steps to improve the experience based on what you have shared. The owners have just started renting their home and take every word of advice to heart and have corrected the issues you stated below with new supportive pillows. They have also rectified the trash issue to make it easy. There is a grill below in the garage available for your use along with chairs in case you wish to sit outside. We're sorry you did not get a chance to take advantage of this feature of the house - the owners have notified us to update the listing with this information. As for the cleaners having the wrong address, it appears that this was an unrelated incident to the property as cleaners for this property are standard throughout the area and are well notified when the tenants vacate the property. We are sorry you felt that stripping the bed and piling the towels was an imposition. We try to keep check-out procedures as seamless as possible for departing and arriving guests, and these tasks are standard for a vacation rental home, but again, apologize to hear you were inconvenienced. Our intention is that you have a wonderful stay and enjoy the amenities provided. Thank you again for letting us know and we hope to assist you again in booking a vacation rental that will exceed your expectations! Best, The Evolve Team
