A little hard to find since it's behind a larger house on a main street. Very cute house, 10 minute walk to the beach and even closer walk to downtown & Pier area. Check-in was supposed to be at 4:00, it was closer to 4:30. The cleaning crew was down a person leaving one girl to clean the entire house. The kitchen floor was a mess but we wanted to get into the house. We think the previous tenants were disrespectful of the property. Remote controls for both TV's were underneath a couch or bed, sofa in the living room had been moved and in one of the bedrooms, the space above the air conditioning unit had been knocked out leaving a large open space to the outside. Since it was Sunday night, we did a quick fix ourself (having Rite-Aid across the street was a bonus!). The response by Vacasa was QUICK, they kept us up to date on the status of the repairs!
Very surprised to see the kitchen did not have a TV. The living room did have a TV but it's on the 2nd floor. Kitchen is on the first floor & needs to have a TV!
Kitchen could also use some screens on it's bow type windows. We were there with mid/upper 70's & no humidity. It would have been nice to open the windows & let some fresh air in.
Vacasa does leave a welcome brochure on the kitchen table, but had no contact information if anything did come up. We found that odd.
We would recommend this cottage but advise there is no yard space since it's tucked behind another house.

It was only a 10 min walk from the beach!

Nice house. Only a couple blocks from the beach. We loved our visit.

In terms of location, solid 5 stars. Close to the beach, the fairgrounds, plenty of shops/stores around.
They were able to give us a late check out too which was really nice of them.
The house itself though, its really pretty but terribly maintained. When we first walked in, all the floors and living room furniture were horribly sandy, so sandy that we had to clean the whole place first before unpacking. The furniture needs an upgrade. The drawers upstairs are so old they are Literally falling apart. The pull out bed downstairs came apart screws and all but as we discovered, it wasn't the first time since they were holding some parts with duct tape. Other than the house itself and the really poor cleaning, everything else checked out
All in all, we had a great time.
Hi Hannah, we're so glad to hear that you had a great stay. We regret that the condition of our home did not meet your expectations. We appreciate your feedback as we continue to make updates and improvements to our home. We hope to host you again soon!

This house is perfect for anyone looking to have an adventure in the old orchard beach area. It’s accommodations are perfect. Air conditioners in every bedroom and the kitchen. 2 fullbathrooms. Washer and dryer and fully functional and full furnished. All you have to do is show up. Getting ahold of the staff is both easy and very helpful. I would recommend this house to anyone. We’re probanly going to go back to old orchard beach, and when we do we’re going to request this house again.

Great location. Cute setup inside.

The house was great. Very comfortable for two families (8 total with 4 of them being teenagers). Close to the pier and felt very comfortable for the ‘kids’ to venture off to the pier and basketball courts. This house was just as advertised. The best part of the house was the large kitchen table that sat all 8 of us. We enjoyed hanging out around that table while chatting and playing cards! Great house.

It was nice and updated, but bed i used was really hard and a hole in the mid section. I wished there was salt and pepper.

fyi, if you're having trouble finding the house, its actually behind another house that's on the street front. It's built on the lot behind the house on the street. Took us a couple of times around the block to find it.

This house is really great, with mostly all you need and the location is perfect. The only thing that needs to be change is the Sofabed, as it is very uncomfortable for a couple to sleep on it. As mentionned, the house sleeps 8, but only 6 can sleep very well. If an improvement is made for the sofabed, the house will be almost perfect.
Chris M.Aug 2017
This house was clean, nicely furnished, with has everything you will need for a great vacation. LOVED that the linens and towels were provided by Vacasa, and having soap and small shampoo/conditioners in showers was such a nice treat! The house is a 5 min walk to the beach, pier and amusement park. Our teenagers were off on their own and having a great time. We will definitely stay here again. GREAT stay!

This home was super cute and welcoming! The pictures are spot on! My group of 8 adults slept comfortable (3 bdrms and a pull-out sofa bed). It is a detached 2 story home on a shared lot and it's lucky enough to be the back house! It was very private and not awkward at all. The local manager, Erik, was super welcoming and communication was easy; email/phone. The location is EVERYTHING! Right across the street from RiteAide, up the block from the beach, Playland Palace, a bunch of places to eat (including The Shack) and a bar or 2 along the way. I would definitely love to stay again and I highly recommend!!! :)

This house was 100% as pictured -- Down to almost small details of the photos. Be mindful there is NO AC. While there are box fans in almost every room. It does get quite humid in the bathrooms. We stayed in June so I can't speak to the late July/Mid-August heat but just keep that in mind. Other things to note -- It says no grill however, there is a patio with a table that seats 6 and a gas grill with the propane tank attached available to you so that is incorrectly marked. Not sure if we just lucked out from the last people who rented and they left their tank or if it's provided but it was there more our use. Also, technically it says there are only 2 parking spots right in front of the house which is true -- However a small sedan (or my Jeep Compass) fit in a DIY spot just in front of the patio with no issues from either house (us or the one in front of us) with exiting or entering. This house overall surpassed my expectations. Hotel style toiletries are provided (1 set for every person) but bring your own paper towels and toilet paper as no extra rolls of either are provided. There is also no cleaning products as side from dish soap so bring your own multi surface spray if you're there for the week for the table, counters, spills, etc. Also bring a laundry basket if you plan to use the washer and dryer as well as your own laundry detergent as literally nothing is provided but the washer and dryer, not even a hamper. Extra blankets, pillows, linens are provided -- However bring some extra pillow cases because those are not for the extra pillows we used (pillow cases are on all pillows on all beds). Less than 2 blocks from the pier -- Surrounding houses seem to be rentals as well (including the house in front of this one) which was nice for making friends! We never used our car except for the grocery store -- Rite aid across the street (literally), under 5 minute walk to the pier, the carnival, restaurants, shops, bars, etc. I really enjoyed my stay overall, just wanted to share some key tips for the next person(s)!

We enjoyed the location of this property because it was walking distance to everything. There was a vacant lot beside the house so you didn't feel surrounded by people and houses. The decor was beautiful, beds comfortable, kitchen well equipped and loved the coat rack station when you enter for all our beach things. We were able to park right in front to the house (not on the street) so we felt our cars were safe and it was easy to unload and access things from our car. The table in the kitchen was a great "hub" . We didn't feel cramped at all and will definitely rent again. Property management was efficient and got back to us immediately for any questions. GREAT PLACE TO STAY!! Joanne
