The Sea Star
Reviewed September 18, 2013

We have been vacationing in Maine and Old Orchard Beach for 38 years. The Sea Star complex includes 5 beach/oceanfront condos. It is our favorite rental or hotel by far. It is perfectly located downtown within walking distance of everything including the famous pier and the Amtrak train station in case you want an excursion into Boston. Our condo was perfect with everything we needed to enjoy our stay including picnic tables and grills. It's like being home. Aside from a few shopping excursions we parked our car and enjoyed everything by foot. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Units 1 and 3 are the best. End units!

We just spent a wonderful few days in this gorgeous 2/2 townhouse directly on the ocean. The views are to die for, outstanding. It was large, immaculate, excellent bed, shower and direct oceanfront porch, incredible location near all attractions. Perfect!

Our party of 6 stayed here a few days before and after labor day, when we arrived in the early evening the town was packed and it took a while to reach our condo as traffic in OOB is pretty crazy, they need more traffic lights! On arrival, we were delighted to see how huge our condo was, we stayed in the 2 bedroom unit and the ocean view was incredible. The condo was full service, everything you could possibly need was supplied, however, you do need to take some small supplies with you, e.g. soaps, toilet roll, the Manager of the property, Cynthia, sent us a list in advance of what to bring so we were well prepared. The condo itself was immaculate, great living/dining area, 2 bathrooms (heaven with 4 adults), a king size bed in the master bedroom overlooking the ocean, and a great kitchen with both a dining area and breakfast stools. We had a TV/DVD but rarely watched it, (nothing beats staring at the ocean) a large patio area and a private BBQ area that was enclosed, a great place for the 2 year old to play without venturing out on the actual beach.
The beach was steps away and my only complaint was that it was littered with hundreds of cigarette butts, too bad people think the beach is an ashtray. Otherwise it was lovely, the water was too cold to swim in for us but it's safe for kids to paddle in and my grandson spent many happy hours building sandcastles. Our condo was located right next door to a restaurant/bar and a couple of times live music was played but it stops around 11 and never bothered us. Our host, Cynthia, said we could order fresh lobsters from her at a good price and she was true to her word, we got 6 wonderful lobsters delivered to our door for less than $50, and got to eat in in the comfort of our condo, fabulous! We really liked the location, close to everything, walkable to many shops and eating places, plus the amusement park which we frequented a couple of times before it shut down for the season.
Parking was easy, the lot was just behind the condo and the 2nd vehicle lot was only a couple of streets away. We got to use the main lot for our 2nd vehicle mid-week as it emptied out considerably after labor day.
Our party took advantage of the scenery and did several drives up and down the coast, hitting Freeport, Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, York Habor, Portland, Cabelas (my husbands dream store) and the L.L. Bean outlets, stopping at some very reasonaly priced gift shops on the way. Note to Canadians - we found several Tim Hortons in the area so rest assured, you can still get your 'fix'. Lobster can be found all over (!) and we enjoyed some great meals, prices were very reasonable. Portland was a great place to visit and shop in, check out the Stonewall Kitchen, they have so many samples that you could do lunch there, and the selection is incredible. We even saw a cruise ship at the harbour.
Overall, we highly recommend this area, our accommodation and it's a great place to bring your kids, so glad we did it and would love to come back again some day.
