About Linda

Beautiful and fun. Love the water and waves. Lots of beach for Bocce. We enjoy time spent in Maine. Nature trail at end of point is not to be missed. Catch it at low tide and you can venture out to Timber Island and cross the channel to another large beach.

Linda purchased this house in 2003

Why Linda chose Biddeford

We love the laid back feeling in Maine. No traffic, no hurry. The beach is great for young children and walks. The nearby 3 mile beach is perfect for long walks, swimming, surfing, fishing and boogie boarding. The seafood is terrific. The Rachel Carson trail walk and all the beach it leads to is not to be missed. Lots to do as a family.

What makes this house unique

Swimming, kayaking, boogie boarding, shopping, walking, biking and great surfing.

Southern Maine Gem

  • 5 of 5

The home was everything it was advertised to be, extremely comfortable with well-appointed furnishings. Our party of six adults enjoyed the lovely views, from the deck, of the Atlantic Ocean. It was a short drive to some wonderful beaches & restaurants, and close to the attractions of Kennebunkport & Portland. A quiet & peaceful vacation spot.

very good

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a sunny Saturday, in this house which looks very much as a retreat from the traffic. Our kids and grandkids loved it so much that we barely left the place during the week, only to go to the grocery. We walked every day to the beach which we saw upon arrival , which is quiet and not deep, which is good for the kids. Some of us ran on the trail to Timber Island, some looked at the stars at night. We all enjoyed our evening BBQ. The place is clean and its four bedrooms were ok for us ,landlord answered very rapidly to our questions. Environment is quiet , with some very lovely houses. We will consider booking it another time

Comfortable home on beautiful point. Plenty of room. Perfect location, short stroll to two quiet sandy beaches and an estuary. Away from crowds but easy access to larger beach, groceries, good ice cream. Very nice hosts. We had perfect weather. I want to return.

Great space

  • 5 of 5

My 4yo son and I loved our August vacation at this house. Great space allowed us to host grandparents throughout our two-week stay with no concerns about being too cramped. The kitchen was perfect for all the meals we cooked. The outdoor porch was ideal for afternoon drinks and snacks. We loved walking to the beach, exploring the nature trail just past the stinky beach, and hanging out at Biddeford Pool and Kennebunkport. The spot is a little remote, which is exactly what we were looking for. The owner was extremely responsive when we had a question during our stay, and the space was clean and comfortable. I would recommend this home highly!

Our Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house has been our summer getaway for the past three years. It has everything that you want and need for a great vacation. We feel that it is our home away from home. The location is also perfect for our young family. We walk 2 minutes to a private beach, bike 5 minutes to Fortunes Rocks beach, and during low tide, we cross the river to Goose Rocks. The kids think of this as their adventure. We love coming to this area because of its tranquility, the beaches are never crowded, and the people are very friendly. We love this house so much that we do not even bother to search for another one.
