Immaculate, breezy and bright, this rental is a short walk to the beach on a well maintained boardwalk. The apartment is fully furnished, including all linens, towels, kitchen supplies, soaps, tissues, wifi, Cable TV with Premium channels, beach chairs and beach towels etc. The entrance to the apartment is from the outside and is on the opposite side of the house from the main house. The apartment is situated so it is private and not visible from the living area of the maine house.
There is hardwood and tile throughout, a small 8x8 deck overlooking Great Pond and open fields. Check the map below to see our nearness to the beach. There is a luxury Inn (Inn by the Sea) across the street and a boardwalk to the beach. The restaurant (is excellent) and spa are open to the public.
Air conditioning, although available, is rarely needed in this unique location, providing a chance to smell the ocean and hear the surf as you drift off to sleep. A larger map shows we are at the head of a peninsula (Penrhyn Y Mor) with the open ocean on three sides.
We are located about 7 miles from the city of Portland. Although this is a beach vacation destination there is no build up of commerce and we maintain a quiet, rural atmosphere with farm fields, wildlife and open spaces. If you book late June and early July you can walk across the street and pick your own strawberries. The farm fields also allow amazing sunsets until the last sliver of sun is visible.
When you are ready for the evening the city of Portland is a ten minute drive. Reservations are recommended at most fine restaurants. If you do have to wait for a table the walk around the cobblestone streets of the Old Port is more than charming. You’ll find a spectrum of activity from a working waterfront to fine dining, local breweries and vibrant nightlife.
Join us for a quality coast of Maine get away. Mark and I are always available for questions and suggestions.
Check-in is Saturday after 3PM, Check-out is Saturday by 11AM
