Recent Portland & Casco Bay reviews

  • 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."

  • Great location and very comfortable for 3 couples

    "Six of us spent a week in this lovely property and enjoyed it very much. The beds were very comfortable and the common space was lovely and roomy. The house layout gave each couple a nice amount of privacy. The house was well maintained and the owner promptly attended to 1 small need need while we were there. Higgins Beach is about 1/2 block away and it was a pleasant place to walk, people watch, and enjoy the ocean. The location made for easy day trips to Portland, Kennebunkport, Kittery, Pemiquid lighthouse and Freeport. Highly recommended."

  • 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 !!"

  • We couldn't have wished for anything better!

    "Beautiful view onto the water from all sides of the house's expansive windows. Lovely and well-maintained house with deck on 2 sides and dock in the back. Very comfortable beds, woke up every morning to a breathtaking scene of the ocean. About 15 minutes to Brunswick and shopping, and 25 minutes to public beach. Lots of nature preserves in the area, Portland about 30 minutes driving distance. Ideal! Thank you so much, Amy and Dan, for a trip we will never forget!"
