A Note to Property Owners

Absolute Beach Rentals offers dedicated rental agency services to property owners in the Old Orchard Beach area. Whether a beach house, an apartment, a summer cottage or lavish condominium, we can rent it.

Our mission is to facilitate the process of renting your property so you don’t have to. We advertise summer rental properties on-line, schedule showings, obtain rental agreements to protect your interest, inspect the property on vacancy and pay you your proceeds promptly and efficiently.

Although our focus is on weekly summer vacation rentals, which present owners a premium income opportunity, we also offer a growing number of local apartments for rent on a longer term basis. As such, our agency is open year round giving us and you a rental market advantage.

Oceanfront properties and other vacation rentals close to the beach are in popular demand throughout the Old Orchard Beach area. The rental properties we offer are located in the Old Orchard Beach, Ocean Park, Kinney Shores and Pine Point areas. If you own a summer rental or vacation property in this area we can rent it for you at fair market value.

To facilitate renting your vacation property, we will publish it on our website where prospective tenants can examine your property. We also publish various properties on the Old Orchard Beach Chamber of Commerce website and other social media outlets. Please contact us by phone, e-mail, postal mail or visit us in person in our office located at 11 First Street, Suite A in Old Orchard Beach Maine.

We have done our homework to create a marketing system that works. We know how to be found on the internet. and how travelers research travel accommodations and vacation properties on-line.

Year round we have prospective renters contacting us on a daily basis searching for summer rentals that meet their needs. We pre-qualify these contacts and match them up with available listings. Our operations are specifically designed to convert summer rental inquiries into profitable vacation rentals.

We collect a 50% deposit from renters to confirm the reservation within 10 days of booking a rental. We collect the remaining balance 30 days before occupancy, including a damage deposit for your protection.

Call us today to get started or contact us now by email with property rental agency questions or concerns. We are open off-season from Monday through Saturday and everyday during the summer rental season.

We look forward to being of service and developing a mutually beneficial property rental relationship.

Additionally, here are testimonials from some of our current owners we work with:


“We cannot say enough nice things about Absolute Beach Rentals. The Reid family has made our “rental life” so easy! David, Suzanne, and Matt know how to conduct a rental business, without exception. They are experts in marketing techniques, contract management, web site exposure/information—all business-end managerial capabilities. But these talents are not what make ABR so unique. First and foremost, the Reids truly want their clients to have a happy, enjoyable vacation in Maine. They are gracious, kind, and attentive to each and every one of our tenants. Our renters return each summer to The Cottages By The Sea because of the special, personal attention they receive from the Reid family. The ABR staff welcomes our tenants, they check on them during their stay, and follow-up with them at the end of their vacation to make sure that their every need was taken care of. Important, too, is the fact that there are always personnel available 24/7 at ABR just in case an unforeseen emergency arises.

We are so fortunate to have such capable and caring managers at the helm of our cottage rentals. We are so grateful to them for all they do on our behalf!”

– Dr. and Mrs. Murray S. Hoffman


“Absolute Beach Rentals is without a doubt the “Best” rental agency in Old Orchard Beach!  Owner, Dave Reid, along with his wife and son are true caring professionals. They go above and beyond to ensure that their owners and renters receive a level of service second to none!  Absolute has been our rental agent for several years and we couldn’t be happier.  I have experienced several other rental companies over the years and quite frankly they couldn’t begin to measure up to Absolute’s standard of excellence!  Absolute Beach Rentals = Absolute Quality!”

– Anthony J Riello,  Chief (Retired)


“I really enjoy our partnership with Absolute Beach Rentals. Dave and his team are committed to helping people have a safe, fun vacation and they understand that a nice, quality, clean place to stay is the first step. In the rental business things don’t always go as planned. What I enjoy most about working with Absolute Beach Rentals is that not it’s not about problems that may occur, it’s about what they do once they are discovered that matters. Absolute Beach Rentals is committed to going above and beyond for their renters, and that translates into a lot of repeat business for me. They are true professional to work with.”

– Paul Meade


 “I have been doing business with Absolute Beach Rentals for the past 10 years and in all that time have not had one negative experience. Dave Reid has always been professional, responsive, effective, and an excellent business man. His word is his bond. I trust his judgement and his business acumen. His interest has always been, through background checks, to provide us with great renters. Many of whom are repeat customers… year after year. I highly recommend Absolute Beach Rentals to any property owner who anticipates renting their property in the Old Orchard Beach area.”
