  • Perfection!

    "We love this little corner of South Portland. Just a short walk from the beach, this immaculate apartment meets all our needs. Minutes from the city and the beaches, great bike rides, super restaurants and Fort William. We are already booked for our next visit."

  • Wonderful house close to beach!

    "My family of five stayed in the house for one week in July. The house is in a wonderful location, close to Kennebunk and Kennebunkport, as well as the beach. A parking pass is provided so we drove to the beach, but we also rode our bikes one day. I ran to the beach every morning, as well as to Kennebunkport one morning. The beach that the house is closest to is soft, sandy, and very clean with a great playground right on the beach. The kids enjoyed swimming and riding the waves in the ocean, as well as climbing the rocks and exploring the tidal pools. The house itself is perfect for larger families or even two families as it is very spacious. My husband and I slept in the master bedroom, which had a very comfortable mattress and flat screen TV. Our kids slept in the other upstairs room, which has two twin beds and is very large. There is also a large bedroom and family room in the basement that appeared to be newly renovated with new carpet and furniture. We spent some time watching a few family movies down there on the new large flat screen TV, but did not use the bedroom down there. The basement also walks out to a lovely patio and huge backyard. We spent some time back there grilling (on a really nice gas grill!) and also playing games with the kids. A bonus was the brand new washer and dryer, which, as all moms know, is indispensable for a week long stay with kids! Beach chairs, toys, and towels were also provided, which is a huge plus and saved so much packing room in our already cramped van. Overall, this house really can't be beat for the value, location, and size. We enjoyed our stay and would unreservedly recommend it to anyone!"

  • Karen's Cottage

    "This cottage is just like home - because it IS a home. So comfortable, roomy and excellently arranged. Two great recliners in the living room, kitchen has washer, dryer, microwave, dishwasher, gas stove and full sized refrigerator. The beds are comfortable and the quiet makes is easy to sleep at night. A spacious deck with patio furniture and a gas grill makes sitting outside a joy. A 55" TV in the living room and a 36" TV in the master bedroom make it a great place to vacation. Wi-Fi and Internet keeps you connected to the outside world, if that's what you want. I would recommend this beautiful cottage to anyone!!"
