It looks like the summer of 2021 is going to be a lot more normal than the summer of 2020.  We're starting to see the return of festivals, amusement parks, fairs, and concerts.

On top of that, people who avoided taking a vacation in 2020 are planning a big summer vacation this year.  As things are not completely back to normal (yet), many people are planning to vacation a lot closer to home than they normally would.

This means day trips to New England attractions, or maybe a weeklong stay in one of Maine's amazing tourist communities.  Old Orchard Beach, Bar Harbor, Kennebunkport, or Wells, for example.

With that in mind, we have put together a list of some amazing oceanside rentals from Airbnb.  All of them are close to the water, and some are even on an actual beach.

Check out our list...
