Seasonal / Vacation Rentals

About Us

Avail July-Sept., by the week.

“The Anchorage”, is located on Gooch's Beach, 50 feet from high tide and is one of 3 beaches at Kennebunk Beach. Gooch's Beach is a safe, sandy non-commercial, mile long beach with 2 lifeguard stations.

Our home has 5 bedrooms, 4-1/2 baths, 3 sun porches, dining room, living room, kitchen and butler's pantry. It is on a double corner lot and has a picnic table, lawn furniture, a Weber Gas Grill, plus an outdoor show. The Carriage House behind the home has an extra bathroom with hot shower, (the 4th bathroom), and changing room for the beach, along with clothes washer and dryer and an extra refrigerator. We provide cable TV and WiFi. The fully equipped kitchen has a dishwasher, microwave, toaster and coffee maker.

The price is $6,000 per week, in addition to a 9% Maine Sales Tax, ($540.00) and a $1,000 security deposit (refundable within 48 hours less the cleaning fee on your day of departure).

If you decide to reserve a week, we will mail you a lease and we require 1/2 of the rental fee $3,000.00 when the lease is returned within 2 weeks of receipt. The remaining balance, $3,000.00, plus the 9% Maine Sales Tax $540.00, plus the security deposit of $1,000.00 is due 10 days prior to your arrival.

The security deposit will be returned within 48 hours of your departure. A cleaning fee will be deducted from the security deposit. Our cleaning crew charges by the hour, so the cleaner you leave our home on your departure the less it will cost to restore it to “tenant ready” condition. Cleaning fees usually run between $75.00 to $250.00
