Recent Portland & Casco Bay reviews

  • 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 !!"

  • Yearly Girls' Getaway!

    "This home accommodated six female, life-long friends who get together once a year in a different location in the country. The proximity to the airport was very important since everyone flying in involved traveling from five different states across the US and warranted several trips back and forth to the airport. It is conveniently located to restaurants, shopping, and the areas we planned to visit. We wanted a true feel of a home that represented Maine and this home did exactly that. There are more than enough areas within the home to sit and enjoy conversation comfortably. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to enjoy the beach as much as we intended because we were busy doing other things, but waking up each morning to the sounds and views of the ocean from every room in the house was lovely. If pressed to find something critical to say, the only thing I can come up with was we needed more kitchen garbage bags and in the big picture, that’s not a big deal. I understand the owner was very helpful in assisting a couple of the ladies when their flights were cancelled and they needed to stay an extra day. I would highly recommend this home to anyone who wants the convenience, comfort, and flavor of a vacation home in Maine located steps away from the ocean."

  • Wonderful House!

    "This was a great house. Our family of 5 adults and 1 baby stayed there for 7 days from Sept. 10 thru Sept. 17 and thoroughly enjoyed everything about the house and the location. It was perfect for us. The owners were very friendly, very organized and very accommodating, and as other reviews have said, thought of everything. They even had plenty of coat hangers in the closets, which doesn’t seem like a big deal but it is if all your clothes are in suitcases and you want to hang them up! The house was immaculate and spacious. The three bedrooms were very large and airy, as were all the rooms in the house. Perfect house for anyone."

  • 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!"
