Super cute and clean

  • 5 of 5

This super cute cottage 5 minutes from the beach was totally equipped with everything my family needed and more. We couldn't be happier with our stay.The cottage was clean and cozy. It was obvious the owner took pride and care to make whoever stayed there comfortable. I would highly recommed this summer getaway cottage.I had different family members comming and going through out the week and everyone really enjoyed the space.The fire pit and grill provided a relaxing time in the evening.

Very clean!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our adult children, grandchildren and friends who came at different times during the week. The.owner, Gale, was extremely warm, gracious and accommodating. She takes pride in her property and it shows with all her personal touches throughout. We will definitely be back.

A Good Choice for the family!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our choice of Twin Tides. The location was awesome. It was close enough to the beach, but far enough from the pier. We had 6 adults, 2 children and a dog. There was plenty of room. It was clean and laid out well. We were able to park 3 cars and could have parked more on the street. The neighborhood was very friendly. There were 2 little stores close to the house and they were reasonably priced. We appreciated the beach gear and buggy which made our trip easier. We also used the grill and fire pit which was nice. I recommend this property highly.

Twin Tides is amazing and a must stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Maine, so we didn't really know what to expect.

We were pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the beach and the quiet neighborhood we stayed in.

The house was everything we could ask for and more! From the stocked kitchen to the spacious living room and 3 bedrooms. Being as it was just my husband, 2 girls (12 & 8), myself and our jack russell terrier, we didn't need all of the extra sleeping space, but it's good to know for the future!

The walk to the beach (a short .3 mile) was very easy with the cart the owners provided. Also, it was nice to have the beach chairs, umbrella and sand toys, less to pack!

I didn't pack enough linens, but there was a number to call and they were delivered within the hour, for a nominal fee!

We will be visiting Twin Tides again next year!

Thank you for wonderful vacation memories!

Great place close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The cottage is cute and comfortable. We especially appreciated how well organized everything was, including the kitchen and grill/fire pit stuff. The TVs in every room (with cable) was a nice touch and the master bedroom had a great closet. Oh and the downstairs TV has a smart TV that had a netflix account on it (not sure if it was the owner's or a prior guest that never logged out), but if you want to binge watch something over dinner or after the kids have gone to bed you've got the option (assuming you're savvy enough to work a Samsung smart TV).

All the wood tables had glass tops on them, which seemed odd, until we realized how easy it made cleaning up. Was just one less thing to worry about, which was nice.

This really is a very quick and direct walk to the beach and you'll pass a sandwich shop (that also sells beer) and beach supply store on your way, so it's very convenient. The beach, by the way, allows dogs before 10am and after 5pm, and we had some lovely late afternoon walks with the hound.

We really enjoyed the fenced in side yard with our dog, too. It was pretty shady on hot days and it was a nice place to relax before or after the beach.

Linens are not provided and we forgot ours. That's not the owner's fault, she didn't promise linens, I'm just mentioning it so you don't goof up like we did. Oh, and the beds seemed pretty comfortable.

Perfect location for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great location, quiet neighborhood yet close to beach and shops. There was even a nice little park for our grandson within walking distance. Caregiver came over upon our arrival to make sure everything was ok with helpful info about the area. House was large enough for 6-8 comfortably with full kitchen supplies, wagon for daily trek to the sea. Very clean premises and nice open floorplan. Short driving distance to antiques and flea markets, lighthouses and beautiful state park at Cape Elizabeth. Great communication from booking to departing from owner, would absolutely recommend this lovely beach house to friends and family.
