About Patricia Gilgallon

I have been renting my vacation home since 2000 and have renovated something almost every year. I live in Ohio and have been coming to Maine for 30 years. Summers in Maine are heavenly. The house is in a great location because it is very close to the beach but is private. Plus you can kayak from the house easily and safely. There are local companies that will drop off equipment for the day or the week. Gone with the Wind or Kayak Excursions are a couple of Kayak companies close by.

Patricia Gilgallon purchased this house in 2000

Why Patricia Gilgallon chose Biddeford Pool

Fabulous views - great deck to watch the pool empty and fill every 6 hours - Kitchen sunroom and living room renovated in 2011 - bath and lower level renovated in 2015. A short walk to the beach. All new living room furniture and all new mattresses summer 2016.

What makes this house unique

Bring your kayak or small boat and launch it from the backyard.

Amazing house with terrific views!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Long Look was wonderful! The house allowed our family to stretch out with quiet spots to relax and large common areas for family games. The views from the deck overlooking Biddeford Pool were stunning, with morning sun and afternoon shade. Everything was perfect and we can't wait to come back next summer!

We had a marvelous time !

  • 4 of 5

The house is very spacious, well situated and well equipped. We really enjoyed the deck and watching the tides go in and out. The walk to the beach is easy and of course the beach is the best one in Maine as far as we are concerned. That room downstairs suited us very well as we had a family of 5 that could stay there. We hope to rent it again sometime soon. Thank you.

Everything about our stay was fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The location, the house, everything about our stay was exactly what we were looking for! The inside of the house; kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, living room, etc were more than functional and very well kept. The spacious deck over looking the Biddeford pool (where we spent most hours of our day) was really fantastic, and the added bonus of watching the ebb and flow of the tides was really cool (especially for a science nerd like myself). The 3 minute walk to the beach couldn't be beat either, we took daily advantage of walking the beach for miles at dawn and dusk; so relaxing. One of the cleanest beaches I've seen, not once overcrowded, and pup friendly at certain hours. We have been spending our summers in York Maine, but decided to try a different location this year, and I'm so glad we did. The house location was great, and the 12 minute car ride to Kennebunk, a really great town to explore if you want to venture out (it will have something for everyone), was great fun. Restaurants, shops of all kind, the marina just fantastic. I would highly recommend this house as a vacation destination, 5 stars for certain, and the renting process could not have been smoother. We can't wait to go back!

Amazing house and location

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing and perfect for our vacation! The pictures of the house do not do it justice... we were so pleased with the layout, cleanliness and, of course, the views! The back deck was by far the favorite place to hang out...we lived out there. The kitchen was very well appointed (and gorgeous!!) and allowed us to cook meals each night. The kids loved exploring the pool at low tide, and were thrilled that the beach was so close. We had never been to Biddeford previously, and really enjoyed biking through the Biddeford Pool neighborhoods, and the area by the inlet, as well as walking out to Stage Island and exploring at low tide. We also had a great meal at Buffleheads one night. We can't wait to go back & rent this house again!

What a wonderful rental. Beautiful, clean, house. Comfortable beds, great water pressure. The pictures do not do it justice, as it has obviously been upgraded since they were taken. The kitchen

is beautiful and well stocked with dishes and pans. The house is situated in a beautiful setting, which changes frequently as the tides go in and out. Hard to pinpoint which view is more lovely, and then of course the beach is just a block away! We were very comfortable with eight people. Although there were many things to see and do in the area, it was hard to leave (even for the day) this restful, beautiful home. We will be back for sure!
