About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 3-6)
On any beautiful morning, you have the choice of either sitting in the spacious backyard or rolling a kayak down the sidewalk, past the seven houses that separate you from the beach and into the water you go! Take a morning paddle out to Peak’s Island, or if you are daring take a more extended trip along the wild Maine coast or any of to the Casco Bay islands. After a coffee at the Peak’s Island Café, you can paddle back home and spend the afternoon at any one of the wonderful nearby beaches. Or, for those with a sweet tooth, there’s an ice cream shop across the street from the bakery. In the evening, a five minute drive or the bus that stops at the corner will get you into Portland, where the options are endless; great food, galleries/art walks, theater, etc. During these hot summer nights, everyone seems to fill the vibrant streets of the city Rand McNally rated “One of the Top Ten Places to Live in the US.”
P.S. Rent from October1 thru May31, for those folks thinking of relocating to my fabulous state, or just can't keep away! Rate: $1750 per month plus utilities.

About the owner: I'm a designer, a builder, and an artist. I have restored this house with an artist's eye. In the back of the house sits an old shed where photographers from the beach would take pictures of people in parasols in front of the rose-covered shed. This shed has become my muse for over twenty years, as I have painted it in all formats, from oils to charcoals to watercolor. In fact, the yard was my original inspiration for purchasing the house, as it has a very special quality. I have been spending my winters abroad where I write and paint. One of my artist's journal is presently at the printers. I take great pride in making people comfortable and offer them an inspiring, creative, and relaxing space.The walls are filled with my art and art of others, including my Dad , many of which are for sale to take home with you if you feel the impulse.
Why the Owner Chose Willard Beach, South Portland, ME, USA:
Living near the ocean in a great neighborhood has always been a dream of mine, and with the purchase of this house that dream became a reality.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's a short walk to the beach, which I take multiple times during the day, from sunrise to sunset. One of my greatest pleasures is wheeling my kayak to the beach and going out for either a morning or afternoon paddle. Many kayak/canoe rental spots close by. I enjoy sitting on the front porch, watching the beach world go by. The lobsterman from next door has provided me with lobster in the past for myself and my friends. I have actually had sit-down dinners for over twenty-five people in my living space. My house is also a great place to show my art and the work of others. Working at creating a kitchen fit for a gourmet. Just installed a new 5 burner Samsung gas range/oven today….and a brand new dishwasher as well! The house is equipped with cooking appliances from a Kitchen Aid mixer to Stainless steel fish poacher, etc. Plenty of lobster pots for the courageous chefs amongst you…..Enjoy a lovely veining cooking in, and enjoy the tranquility of my beautiful backyard. Oh…don't forget to catch the bakery for a fresh fruit tart, chocolate cake before it closes at 6……and 7:a.m. for fresh bagels and coffee.
