Great Beach House with amazing views
Pros: One house back from the beach on a quiet street. Loved the keyless entry...no worrying about losing keys or who has them in their pocket. The kitchen had nice appliances and was well stocked with plenty of nice dishes, pots, pans, utensils, etc. The living room furniture was large and very comfortable and room for all 7 of us. The beds were adequate with decent mattresses and bathrooms were very nice and clean. Great water pressure in all the showers including the outdoor shower, which has hot water as well, and is enclosed. I personally, loved showering outside. There was an extra hose for rinsing feet, box full of sand toys, nice gas grill. Large back deck with a comfortable resin picnic table with a big umbrella. The two front decks have amazing views of the ocean and the stars! We spent a lot of time there. Lots of light from all the windows makes you feel connected to the outdoors and catch nice breezes. Ceiling fans in all bedrooms except one on first floor which remained fairly cool anyways. One in kitchen and foyer, too, all helped to keep air circulating. Can fit 4 cars in driveway. Next to the Ferry Beach State Park which has a small playground, ice cream stand, and basketball court which our grandkids enjoyed. The house had everything we needed and Mike was extremely nice and answered all of my questions (and there were many)! Cons: With the three floors comes lots of stairs. Probably not the best for elderly or lots of small kids. If you plan to sleep in, you may want an eye mask...a lot of light from windows and no blackout shades. Ice cream truck comes way too often! LOL!

Beautiful home, perfect location
I can't say enough good things about this house. It had beautiful views of the water, it was well appointed with everything we needed for the week and it was clean and updated. The beach is literally across the street (FYI- the beach is sandy and gorgeous, but the water was freezing in early July!). There is a large outdoor eating area on the back porch, which made big family dinners easy. Old Orchard Beach is a very short drive (not even 10 mins), and Portland/Cape Elizabeth are easy nice day trips from this house (about 30 mins). Just one thing: the house is tall and narrow - so, lots of stairs! We hope to return here next time we vacation in Saco!

Beautiful Beach House!
If you are looking for a week at the beach - sand, surf and tranquility - this place is for you! I am no camper (some might call me a Glam-per) so this beautifully appointed home away from home was just perfect! Stayed here with my daughter and son-in-law and their 8 month old baby, so a comfortable home to retreat from the son, watch movies, wait out nap time and prepare meals is a must! Spectacular views, no crowds on the beach - a hidden gem for sure!

Phenomenal Place to Stay
If you are looking for a place to view beautiful Maine sunrises from a deck, easy access to fantastic kayaking in a river inlet off the sea, short drives to Portland, Freeport, Kinnebunkport... or maybe just down the street to the General Store for ice cream or maybe to the beach.....this house is a gem. My family stayed in this house a week for a family reunion and it was spectacular. We maxed out the space and the age range was from 9 to 69. The house makes you feel like you are at home. It's been beautifully maintained and it is just a few minutes walk to the beach. The decks you see in the picture are absolutely fantastic to enjoy the serenity around you....or if you need to segregate from a few people in your party during your stay. Bottomline: It's a cozy and well-appointed home that delivered much more than we anticipated . We cannot wait until our next stay.

Well maintained, modern house steps from the beach
My family and I enjoyed this house for ten days in October. We wanted to rent a nice house that was close to the ocean. Its a well decorated, tri-level with great balconies and excellent views of the ocean. The house is 'turnkey' in that they provide linens, silverware, plateware, condiments, etc. Its nice not having to think about that kind of stuff. The bathrooms are modern with good water pressure, the heaters work (although its a little tricky to balance the temperature on all 3 floors), washer and dryers are in great condition and so is the dishwasher. The entire kitchen is updated and nice. The only complaint I had was the early morning noise the kids camp made across the street on some days - but it was a good excuse to get up early and walk to the beach. The house is just a one minute walk to the shore. We enjoyed sleeping to the sound of crashing waves each night. We really enjoyed the house and would return again if it was available.

70th Birthday at Ferry Beach
4 " young girls" rented Mike Wiley's Great Beach house at Ferry Beach in Maine to celebrate our "70th" birthday. The house is terrific and well stocked with just about any appliance you need.. Has great views from all rooms and being able to take a shower and watch the waves was a real treat. The house is a short walk across the road to the cleanest beach I have ever seen. The sun rises were terrific. 2 of us walked 4 miles on the beach every morning and took pictures of the sun when it rose and then walked it again at night. I strongly recommend this house to all . There is plenty of room and alot of stairs to climb but worth every step.

Great house in excellent location
We have rented this house several times over the last few years and have had a great time each time. House is always clean and well prepared, the kitchen is well equipped and very functional. The beach is right near by, you are in a quiet location but close to lot's of great southern Maine activities. The view from both decks is spectacular.

O, What a wonderful time
We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful home. The beach was very accesible, and the neighborhood very quiet and friendly. The beach was wonderful for small children.

About the neighbourhood
This house is located at the 'private' end of Ferry Beach in the sense that there is no public parking and parking along the streets is prohibited. You can walk for miles along this sandy and scenic beach. Many attractions are just a short drive away but several hyper-local places are a very short walk from this house. You can grab breakfast, lobsters, ice cream or household items at the Camp Ellis General Store 0.5 miles away. Don't feel like cooking or driving? Then just walk to Huot's or Wormwoods in Camp Ellis for exceptional seafood and very friendly staff and eat with the locals. Are you a city person and need fine dining? Then make reservations at Street&Co, Fore Street, The Salt Exchange or may others in Portland a short drive away. Want the freshest lobster? Then contact Dean 'The Fishin' Optician' in Camp Ellis. Kids need sugar after dinner? Great idea, then head to the General Store (0.5 miles) in Camp Ellis or Garside's (2 miles) on Ferry Road. Kids need to get their ya-yas out? Bring them to the Funtown/Splashtown or Palace Playland.
