Recent Portland & Casco Bay reviews

  • Treasured memories

    "This authentic historic home is a perfect place for family and friends to gather. It offers one of the most private cottages on the island! The cottage takes you back in time. The one missing element is a golf cart. Although everything is within walking distance...it is cumbersome for lugging supplies, etc."

  • Great island. Great host. Well equipped condo.

    "We loved our stay at Diamond Cove. We have two young kids and found the environment very family friendly and safe for exploring. The playground and swimming pool are resort quality. Roger's rental is as advertised and he has thought of everything a guest might need. The bedding is all high quality - even in the children's room, with down and 100. Thoughtful touches and generous amenities are every where and everything is well organized. Our sitters and other islanders we met confirmed that Roger's unit offers more features than most any other rental - including 100+ channel satellite TV, stereo with hundreds of CDs loaded, good bikes for every family member, new washer/dryer, fridge with ice maker, dry goods and cleaning supplies, first aid kit, top quality cookware, dishes, and small appliances. Possible improvements? Carpeted floors are not great for allergies though Roger mentioned he plans to replace them with wood soon. And it would be great to be able to arrange use of a golf cart - both my parents have limited mobility so it would have helped to tour the island and for them to keep up with the kids. Overall - a great vacation. Highly recommended."

  • This was our first time in Maine

    "The Ocean House is right on the water with great views. It is on an a very quite road with a lot nature in the area. The kids loved the open space around the house and going to the tide pools at low tide. We enjoyed the fire place each night and the fire pit by the water. The wrap around porch was great. The location was convenient to a lot of places to see in that area of Maine, 20 to 30 minutes to a lot of sights. Thank you Doug!"

  • This is the place to stay !!!

    "This is the place to stay!! South Portland and the Willard Beach neighborhood in particular is quite a unique area with Scoops Ice Cream, a bagel shop, and several locally owned very good restaurants within walking distance (or very short driving distance). This cottage is clean and is beautifully situated on the property of the owner allowing views of the bay and Willard Beach and the islands of Casco Bay. I am so happy I found this cottage. I had a fabulous week there, exploring all up and down the Maine coast (from Kennebunkport to Camden), island hopping off the coast of Portland, discovering lighthouses along the way, visiting interesting towns, and enjoying scenic drives (especially Routes 1 and 88 going north from Portland to Camden, then south through Cape Elizabeth to Old Orchard Beach and Kennebunkport) ~ stay off the toll highway...take the scenic routes -- lots to do and see in the whole area and this beach cottage at Willard Beach is great to have as a home port during your stay. The owner provides you with a list of interesting things to do and good places to eat. There is plenty to see and do in a week's time and still have time to kick back and relax, walking on the beach, or just enjoying watching the boats in the bay from the front porch of the cottage. The cottage is very convenient to Portland without having to be right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Portland all the time (Portland is very touristy and can get pretty crowded with traffic along the wharf, but it doesn't take long to figure out how to get around and where to park when there are things you want to do there - like riding the Casco Bay Ferry to do some sight seeing and island hopping or taking a Windjammer sailing cruise). Be sure you have your camera ... there are lots of photo opportunities waiting to be taken !!"
