Recent Portland & Casco Bay reviews

  • 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."

  • Perfect stay

    "The Rose Wind cottage was a real nice Easter retreat. Minutes from the beach, clean, cosy, exceptionally well equipped and decorated, a real gem. It might get a bit cramped with 4 persons in a longer bad weather periode, but otherwise just perfect. The owners are nice and very helpfull (we where the first this year and had a little problem with the WiFi router hanging, which was resolved within 15 minutes) But the place is equiped extremly well, down to the last detail. We will definitly rent again if we can find a free spot in the calendar. (That's the downside of giving an honest good review ;) )"

  • 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 !!"

  • not disappointed

    "this was our first time in Maine and it was a wonderful vacation only to short. This cottage was just as listed. Our family rented the cottage next door and it made a great family vacation. The outdoor shower was super! Our weather was perfect. Our only complaint was previous renters with pets and the pet hair left behind, but I m sure that now the owners are aware that will be taken care of. This was our first time to buy and eat a whole lobster, unbelievable!! We purchased it at Ericas, the best! And we also had steaks fresh cut from the local butcher on 123, and his fresh ground beef was the best for burgers. We had a long journey from Ontario Ca. but was worth the drive. We hope to return in the future and our family too. Thanks to Rob and Bridget for sharing their cottages."
