Charming oceanfront house with incredible beach views, BBQ area & firepit
Wake up to the sound of the ocean waves at this charming, seaside cottage in York. With 121 feet of ocean frontage and a beautiful park-like setting, you can easily unwind on the Adirondack chairs and watch the waves, shooting stars or sunrise. You'll also be treated to a view of the Nubble Lighthouse and Boon Island! This home features a gas fireplace, a cozy sunroom, a firepit and recently received beautiful upgrades while keeping the old charm. This home can also be rented together with Sea Belle - Castle Rock & Sea Belle Cottages.
What’s nearby: Situated right on Pebble Beach, you can enjoy an afternoon of climbing on the reef and exploring the huge tidal pool playground at low tide. Go swimming, paddleboarding, kayaking or try fishing right off the rocks - and bring your water shoes for this! If you're visiting during the 4th of July, you'll have a great view of the fireworks. Take a quick stroll to the Short Sands Beach and downtown, which boasts great shopping and restaurants. The Cape Neddick Park is a mile north or head two miles south of this home to see the Nubble Light House up close.

Loved sitting in the porch in the morning drinking coffee then later in the evening with wine. The beautiful ocean views with accompanying sound of crashing waves was perfect for our relaxing get away. Close to restaurants and shopping. Great place. Easy booking and check in and out. Will come back.

The house was perfect for our group of 6. Incredible views and location, very clean and well stocked with sheets, extra towels, and kitchen items. We spent every night outside at the fire pit - lots of places to buy firewood on highway 1, wish we had remembered to buy things for s'mores! The only trouble we had was with the WiFi not working on the first day, but the managing agent was very responsive and ensured it was fixed quickly.

Perfect beach getaway for all ages (4-80)! Quiet and relaxing oasis away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, but close enough to walk to for lunch or a day at Short Sands beach. We even saw a whitetail fawn nursing on the pebble beach at sundown. Will book again in a heartbeat!

The porch was our favorite place to drink coffee and look at the ocean in the morning and afternoon cocktails.

This home is so comfortable, clean and well-equipped! Just a perfect oceanfront cottage with unobstructed views. Very quiet and peaceful, but in easy walking distance to Short Sands. Can’t wait to return!

Wonderful location. Loved sitting in the yard enjoying the sites and sounds of the ocean. The cottage is very bright and comfortable.

The house was lovely and so well outfitted with everything we needed. We had a great weekend!

Every amenity you could have needed, and the ocean crashing on the rocks is pure therapy. Views from every window, not a bad Seat in the house. Nicely decorated and comfortable. Walk to town. Will return!

The house was well maintained and very clean. The view was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Very quiet and relaxing. Close to York Beach and all the shops. We will be back sometime in the future.

Awesome little cottage, had the street and ocean all to ourselves during the off season and it was wonderful. I can see how parking would be tight when people are staying in the very nearby homes around it, but we only had 1 car and the other homes were vacant so it was not a problem for us at all. The ocean is in your backyard and the house is very cozy and well done for a small family. We had a wonderful stay and wanted for nothing.

The porch and the view. That was amazing sitting enjoying breakfast and looking out at the sea. At night the fire pit was glorious. Plenty of seats for my niece and a few of her friends who actually have places Close by. We were able to socialize and be 6 feet away and make it a mini celebration with cake by the fire

The location couldn’t have been better. We enjoyed the porch, with the fabulous view, for dining & reading. We would definitely return!

The house and location was perfect for our girls weekend! We enjoyed sitting on the porch with windows open so we could hear the ocean. It was a great find, talking about going back next year :)

OMG...best place ever!

The house is super cute and the view is breathtaking! The beds were really comfortable too! The only reason I did not give five stars is because the ceiling fans are in need of a real good cleaning And there were no batteries in the TV remote downstairs.

Beautiful setting just feet from water. Many updates. Great location. Lovely, fireplaced cozy living area with seating for 10-12.
Washer/dryer. Large dining table in kitchen. Also large dining table on enclosed porch for watching sunsets during dinner. Tight parking area. Stairs to second story would be difficult to climb for older adults. 3 bedrooms up and one down. Not fully air conditioned; 2 small bedrooms upstairs only have ceiling fans. No bath tubs only showers which were updated and spacious. Handy to Rte. 1. Very clean and tidy. Spacious. Would definitely rent this cottage again. I miss hearing the ocean hitting the rocks and the clanging of the buoy. Drifted right off to sleep upon hitting the bed. Beds were extremely comfortable. Would definitely recommend this rental.

This house was absolutely wonderful. Had everything we needed and the view was amazing. Would definitely book again

Had a wonderful time at Castle Rock! Slept all six of us comfortably. Loved the fire pit and the location as well. Everything was tidy and clean when we arrived, both inside and outside. Appreciated the stocked spices which came in handy cooking meals (since we came in from out of state), the beach towels and the games! Had blast playing Jenga! I would have given a five star rating but there were a few things that created glitches for us (no hairdryer, baking dish or corn cob holders). Also, the day we checked out, the landscapers showed up a few hours early so were mowing and weed whacking the lawn. Obviously none of these are show stoppers - just suggestions towards a seamless stay for future guests. Another suggestion would be to provide wood for the first night since purchase requires a trip out. Overall, a fun time and great way to enjoy the coast of Maine!

This home far exceeded my expectations! The photos just don't do it justice. Everywhere you look it is apparent that there was much thought and care put in to all the details. Things were done as I always thought that I would do them. Extra blankets and pillows, throw blankets, outlets that have USB ports built into them, etc. But all that is just the icing on the cake - the VIEW is what truly is amazing. When I got out of the car and walked into the back yard - I couldn't believe there was the ocean! I mean, you couldn't be any closer unless you were on a boat! Book this home - you won't regret it. Sleeping with the red bell buoy and the ocean waves lulling you to sleep is an unforgettable experience. There is plentiful seating that is extremely comfortable everywhere. Having just stayed at a home that supposedly sleeps double the amount of people that Castle Rock and having HALF the amount of seating available, I really appreciated that there was space on the sofas for all the people. Enough chairs outside and in the sitting room that overlooks the ocean. We are already planning to stay when we head up north next year!

Perfect spot for a relaxing vacation! Cottage was clean and well cared for. We will be back again.

The house is located just a short 10-15 minute walk from Short Sands beach and the restaurants & shopping that York offers yet it is placed in a very private, quite neighborhood with breath taking ocean views from almost all areas of the house.
The house itself is updated, light & airy and very well kept. It is appointed with most everything you could want in terms of bed linens, towels and even soap & shampoo. It makes traveling a lot lighter.
Anyone renting this house will not be disappointed!
