About Sharon St Pierre-Vivolo
Hello We are the Vivolo's Proud owners of the Blue Pearl and Clamshell Cottage located next door to each other, just steps to the ocean This is our home away from home
Sharon St Pierre-Vivolo purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Sharon St Pierre-Vivolo chose Camp Ellis
We chose to buy these cottages because they were so close to the ocean and we had small children and loved the idea of being able to go back to the cottage for bathroom breaks , lunch and forgotten items Bringing the beach chairs and toys to the beach is a breeze , i cant imagin having to lug all the days beach items like some people have to do in cottages far from the beach
What makes this Cottage unique
Affordable and very close to the Beach and very nice family friendly area
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Location, location, location
Great little cottage that allowed us to shuttle back and forth to the beach with little effort!
Thank you very much for your review Camp Ellis is wonderful family friendly area We are happy you enjoyed our cozy cottage by the sea
Too small for our liking
It was a very cute Cottage and very clean however it was very small and the furniture was very uncomfortable and unfortunately we had poor weather which had us staying in more then if there was nicer weather. In addition with it being off season everything was closed pretty much except for on the weekend and we were only there on Saturday night and Sunday. During the week most stuff was closed because it was not in season yet. The people were friendly and the little town was cute with a nice little beach nook. Huots has fabulous food.
Thank you for your review , unfortunately we can’t control the weather. Early in the season not as many places are open but there is a lot of nature things to do like parks and lighthouses that are a short drive away
, as for the size of the cottage we post the size of the cottage in the listing and show many photos of the layout. We appreciate the feed back we value everyone’s opinion
Nicely maintained and homey.
The Clamshell Cottage is a wondrous place to stay. The atmosphere is clean and happy.
Thank you so much for the lovely review . We try to offer a a cozy home with plenty of amenities,close to the beach for a reasonable price Thank you for choosing the Clamshell Cottage Saco Maine for your Home Away from home
A great October break
Clamshell Cottage was perfect for our needs. The location was great - we loved the proximity to the beach and took long walks every day. We also enjoyed shorter strolls around the pier and the pleasant nearby Camp Ellis neighborhoods. Everything worked in the cottage and was laid out well to maximize the space. (As a couple with a dog, we had plenty of room.) The local restaurant and general store were closed for the season, but there was a nearby supermarket in Saco and a few restaurants were still open in nearby Old Orchard Beach. We even had sunshine every day! We'd visit Clamshell Cottage again if our travels take us to that area, and we recommend it to others.
steps away from ocean
This was our best vacation for relaxation. Steps away from the ocean, perfect cottage for 4 adults. The listing was as stated, close to ocean, cottage style, clean and great location. Many things to do in Camp Ellis as well as great walks along the beach and jetty. Great history behind the area, my daughter did a college presentation from this vacation. Went to Portland for a Seadogs game and shopping, chartered a fishing trip right from Camp Ellis, steamed lobsters from Fishin' Optician, ate at Houyt's. Just simply a wonderful vacation that didn't cost an arm and a leg!!
Our stay at the Clamshell was great. We enjoyed the cottage and the beach a lot. Camp Ellis is a wonderful place if you love the sea : quiet, fabulous sunsets, delicious live lobsters at "Fish'n Optician" just across the street, attraction neerby (Saco, Kennebunk, Kittery, Portland and even Old Orchard Beach if you like crowdy places!)
The owner and the people in Camp Ellis are kind and friendly . The Clamshell is nice and functional for adults with kids. The beach is less than a minute away. We look forward to come again next year and even try it in winter. The only small inconvenient is for people with allergies (like me), because it's pet friendly...
Despite this, we can't wait to go back!
