We are York Beach regulars for years. We've always noticed this house on Long Sands and it's as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside. We stayed in the "white sands" room in the front of the house. It was beautifully decorated with tasteful ocean theme (whites and blues), a wicker chair facing the ocean with windows on three sides. The bed, although not quite a full size, my husband and I slept comfortably and for 8+ hours! As working parents with hectic schedules, being able to sleep so well is such a gift! The bed was soft and the bedding was perfect. Having the windows open, with a gentle breeze and the sounds of the ocean was heavenly.
Their home is literally 10 steps from the beach and there's even the steps down to the beach right in front of the house...super convenient. We woke up and walked down to Oceanside market got 2 coffees, came back and sat in the rocking chairs looking at the ocean. Finished our coffees, walked along the beach, went back to Oceanside and grabbed breakfast veggie wraps, brought those back and sat again on the porch and enjoyed our breakfast "dining al fresco".
Bathroom is shared but not once was there any waiting for it and it was immaculately clean - we had never stayed in a place before when we had to share a bathroom so as a new experience- it was was peace of mind.
Darcy, her mom and dad also provide beach chairs free of charge and great you when you arrive. There's an outside handle held sprayer to rinse your feet off after a walk on the beach.
The closest sit down restaurants are two of our favorites; Mimmo's and Stones Throw - both a short walk.
We highly recommend Darcy's home. It's a perfect spot for a quick getaway. We will be back as soon as possible. Thank you for a wonderful visit!
