We had a very nice week in this studio apartment within walking distance (about 10 minutes) of Perkins Cove. From there we could walk to the town or beach, or simple hop on the trolley. The owners were very helpful and accessible, if needed. They provided linens and towels which was very nice. There were also beach towels and beach chairs. The room might tend to be a bit stuffy, but the air purifier and the a/c worked fine to keep us quite comfortable. The murphy bed is ok comfortable but we brought along a foam topper which made it just fine. If there are only two of you and your not too fussy about your accomodations, and you want to stay in the general Ogunquit area at a very reasonable price, this might be a good bet.
The owner was very accommodating & friendly. Very close to Perkins Cove. Was listed as one bedroom, however, when we got there we found out it was an efficiency & we all had to sleep in the living room, so staying with our older children made it cramped.It would be helpful if that was in the listing somewhere. It did have a musty smell & was damp but using the air conditioner was helpful. Cell service was spotty. I would recommend this place for a couple or for someone with younger children.
Overall the condo was great, and a very good deal. The location is indeed very close to Perkins Cove, within 5 min walk. We made good use of the kitchenette and common grilling area outside; the A/C unit kept us very comfortable at night; the bed was a bit uncomfortable, but really just nitpicking there. Only minor issue was the dampness - could have used a dehumidifier, but wasn't a deal breaker or a big problem. For a stellar deal in a fantastic location this is the place to stay. Communication with the owner David was effective and seamless. Rent with confidence and enjoy the area!

We rented this condo for the first two weeks of July. It was perfect for our needs and we got it for a very good price. I found the condo had a very cozy, cottage like feel. The kitchenette was definitely a bonus as my partner is a chef, so we saved a good deal not having to eat out all the time. The view from the windows is a rock face to the back of the building, but being a ground floor, corner unit – the condo stayed nice and cool during hot days. The air conditioner also worked very well, as my partner prefers it a lot colder. The television was far from a 50 inch flat screen, but I didn't come to Ogunquit to watch television - though there were enough channels to satisfy the both of us, and the wireless internet worked well. The bathroom (or restroom as locals refer to it) had a full length mirror and the shower pressure was good, although you had to be careful, as the water can get very hot. The condo is only a hop, skip and a jump to Perkins Cove, and a 15 minute walk to the beach (although, admittedly I’m a very fast walker) so I never bothered using the trolley to get back and forth. Having a laundry room on the ground floor of the building was also a bonus, although it was a bit of a hassle mustering up enough quarters to use the washer ($2.00) and dryer ($1.50) – it would have been nice if they had a machine that could change bills into quarters on the premises. Over all we had a very pleasant stay and would definitely do it again.
