About the property

House, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Cute, furnished, first floor, 1 bedroom 1 bath guest house at Willard Beach. Great for a single person or couple to enjoy some time in Maine. Enjoy water views and close proximity to the beach.

The guest house is 2 rooms, plus a newly installed galley kitchen with granite counter top and dishwasher and a full bath. We live in the main house next door so are available if you need anything but certainly won' t hover as we work a lot in the summer running the local ice cream shop.

The beach is about 100 feet from the front door. You can hear the waves rolling in at night and smell the salty sea air coming in from the windows.

Enjoy a quiet vacation while blending in with the locals at Willard Beach, South Portland, Maine. Willard Beach is a small, mile long, sandy neighborhood beach with beautiful views of Casco Bay, the islands and the ship channel that leads to Portland Harbor. Watch the cruise ships come into Portland from the porch. Stroll in the sand at dawn and see the local fishing boats head out to sea. Soak up the sun and salty sea air at South Portland's best-kept secret!!

Walk to local restaurants such as Joe's boathouse, David's or one of two wonderful neighborhood bakery/coffee shops. There is also a gourmet ice cream shop a short walk away. Drive three miles to Portland's Old Port district which offers shopping, night life, and a variety of outstanding restaurants. Take the Casco Bay Lines ferries to local islands for biking, dining, or exploring. Short drive from I-295 which leads to Freeport, Maine, home of the world famous L.L. Bean and numerous outlet stores.

Private parking provided.

Such a wonderful lovely spot! Jennifer and Paul are so lovely, as lovely as the beach across the street, as lovely as the view from the patio. This is my second time staying here and if my luck holds I'll be here again next summer!!

For 2 people, this lovely bunglow is just right! It is steps from Willard Beach and a short walk to Bug Lighthouse for a view of gorgeous sunsets. The bunglow has a deck with a table and chairs and a beautiful ocean view. Everything you need to prepare a simple meal is supplied for you. The bed is very comfortable and the linens are quite nice. A short drive takes you to Portland Light State Park and Two Lights for the best lobster roll and one amazing ocean setting. Check in and check out is easy and Jen is only a text away.My only recommendation is a second key would be helpful and Jen was receptive. Life is short; take some time to enjoy coastal Maine in a pleasant, restful setting.

Don't pass this gem up

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed here in June of 2017. Being our first trip to Maine, we could not have picked a better location. This unit is perfect for two individuals and did not disappoint. The owners were very pleasant, attentive and the property is a gem. Excellent view, easy access, steps to the beach and comfortable accommodations. If we ever go back to Maine, we will be sure to stay here again. We had a fully equipped kitchen and a gas BBQ on the newly refurbished porch so we saved time and money preparing some of our meals. As a Southern Californian, we were amazed at how affordable it was to eat out, travel (fuel prices as LOW) and the close proximity to bordering states. We loved it and the location is worth the price. Don't pass this up.
