"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 !!"

"This home was a perfect for us. Initially we chose this property because of the beautiful roof top deck and the grille. We had wonderful breakfasts on the deck as well as some nice evening dinners and cocktails, enjoying the night sky. We stayed the week of Labor Day, which turned out to be extremely warm, and it was perfect in the mornings and evenings. The beautiful plants and flowers make it a great place to relax.
The lay-out is nice, as it has 2 totally separate areas for sleeping; one bedroom, the larger of the two, is on the lower level, and the second bedroom is on the 3rd floor; both have their own bathrooms and a washer and dryer located on the lower level bedroom area. One of the most pleasant surprises to us is the incredible kitchen. Not only was it well stocked with almost anything you could need, it was a spacious area for a number of us to prepare a meal, or casually graze.
Within a 10 minute walk of most of the restaurants and tourist areas in Portland, we seldom drove, and we enjoyed walking to our destinations, and felt very safe in the neighborhood. Some of the things we like doing are: taking the ferry to Peaks Island and renting bikes; going to restaurants like Fore Street and Back Bay Grille; hanging out at the Portland Lobster Company; and for sightseeing the Portland Discovery Land & See Lighthouse Tour is great. The home is very clean and comfortable, and the homeowners were extremely helpful. The listing description and pictures are very accurate. We would definitely recommend renting this property, and will hopefully return again."

"THIS WAS A VERY ENJOYABLE WEEK IN MAINE. THE HOME IS COMFORTABLE AND SPACIOUS AND IS CLOSE TO WILLARD'S BEACH AND WALKING DISTANCE TO MANY THINGS OF INTEREST. WE ENJOYED BACCI BALL IN THE LARGE FRONT LAWN. WE HAD SEVERAL LARGE DINNERS IN THE SPACIOUS DINING ROOM. A SHORT DRIVE TO DOWNTOWN PORTLAND TO MANY FINE RESTAURANTS.THE OWNERS WERE VERY EASY TO WORK WITH AND RESPONSIVE TO ANY QUESTIONS WE HAD. WE WOULD DEFINATELY RECOMMEND THE HOME."
