82 Ocean Ave. in Kennebunkport, ME--an outstanding gem!!! Your beautiful, spacious property with its’ fully equipped kitchen, cozy sitting areas, plush beds, and enchanting water views right at your doors made for a perfect setting for our family “togetherness”. The patio was a picturesque, tranquil retreat each and every evening with a fire in the fire pit. The location of your property with the “scenic” sidewalk right out front gave us easy access to Dock Square and Walker’s Point. ALL of us spent some very special quality time strolling that walkway. The kindnesses you bestowed on us were remarkable. Your immediate responses to last minute follow-up and questions pertaining to your property---made for a relaxing trip!!! You gave us a delightful, upbeat time that left ALL nine family members with many, many smiles and warm memories. Lucky, lucky us---Greg, our thanks!!! Take care

COMMENTS: "Visiting Greg and Heathers house was like living out a chapter in a novel that I had only imagined possible for the rich and famous. However, Greg and Heathers prices for what was offered made everyday government workers such as ourselves live out a spectacular dream. Amongst my most memorable moments in this gorgeous house was sitting outside on the patio deck with the fireplace facing us on one end of the table and a Maine lobster on the other. It was kind of a majestic site with a cool mixture of fall air coupled with the warmth generated from the fire just footsteps away. The outside bose speaker system playing easy listening smooth jazz only enhanced the already special setting. The kitchen offered everything possible from utensils to appliances. The counter space avails itself for those cooks particular to needing area to spread out. Speaking about spreading out... this house offers that indeed. It took me four days to find the other three ladies I traveled with as the home was so huge. LOL. Good thing though, we all got along that much better. All in all to sum it up in a nutshell, the beds were comfortable, the house unbelievably special and clean, the location right in the heart of everything, and well most importantly the hosts Greg and Heather ...as they were unbeatable insofar as being available by either cell phone and/or in person during every step of our journey. I hope to someday live out a few more chapters at 82 ocean avenue. A big thank you for a great experience...
