Recent Portland & Casco Bay property reviews

  • First ever family vacation...and it was amazing!

    "This was the first time my immediate family was able to take a vacation, which included my mom, brother, his wife, my husband and our 15mo daughter. We LOVED this vacation rental...and will look for it again in future years if they continue to rent it out! Mavis, the owner, was absolutely wonderful to work with. Her home is beautifully designed, with LOTS of natural light. She met us at the house and was nearby if we had any questions. She was also kind enough to provide a high chair and pack'n'play for my daughter. As for location, we loved that we were about a 15min walk from Ft. Williams Park, which is the home of the Portland Head Light. We brought our own vehicle, which made it easy to get back and forth between the house, Portland and Boston as we wished. However, I'm not sure travel would have been as easy if we didn't have our own car; I don't know if there is public transportation near the house. Overall, I would highly recommend this location for a vacation stay."

  • Ocean Ledge Review

    "The property was clean and well-maintained at least the main living area of the house. The description wsa not clear that the lower level bar area is only accessible by going outside the house and around back. It was not a problem, just confusing when we arrived. The upstairs was in good condition, though many of the kitchen tools were not in great shape. The downstairs bar area was nice but not well maintained and dusty. The house next door was under construction and wish we were told that prior to our arrival since we had construction noise every day of our trip, which we spent mainly at the house relaxing. I think the rental company should have mentioned that prior to our selecting the property. Overall it was manageable and it was a great location for a relaxing vacation."

  • Lovely Maine Island Cottage, peaceful, beautiful sunsets

    "This is a lovely Maine island cottage. Very quiet and peaceful island. Owners were delightful in meeting us and explaining all necessary things, gas grill, how to drive golf cart, etc. Golf cart fun to get around, but also easy to walk the entire island. Extraordinary sunsets from large wrap around porch. Neighbors were wonderful, shared cukes and green beans from their garden. Fun to jump off the ferry dock. House was well equipped, everything you need in kitchen, new hot shower with plenty of pressure. Gas grill used daily. We did not use internet. Cell service can be challenging on some parts of the island. Take advantage of lobster delivery available, we got 10 soft shells for 1.25 lbs for $64.50 (from Sam Tucker). Good lunch place at Diamond Cove, also good for dinner. We were 4 for most of the stay but 5 for part of the time and accomodations were lovely. Beds appear to be full, not queen. This island has an interesting history (two sides one is Diamond Cove, old Fort McKinley and the other is an 1880s planned development for summer homes) and the Association building has little store with souvenirs and historical photos (also has movie night and dinners once a week). Listing and photos were accurate, this is a typical Maine cottage, not fancy, bare wood floors and walls, very charming. Very short ferry ride to all the good restaurants and shops in Portland."

  • Superb Getaway

    "Thoughtful amenities; all conveniences. Immaculate, comfortable, quiet. Hosts friendly, but considerate of privacy. Near all on picturesque, pastoral Cape Elizabeth while close to artsy Portland and Casco Bay. We had a fabulous week-long vacation with this property as our "home" base. Far exceeded our expectations.You couldn't ask for more in Southern Maine.Enjoy!"
