About Property Manager
The Callahan family first came to Higgins Beach in 1947, when Philip Callahan, grandfather of current owner, Michael Gentile, brought his wife Joyce to the beach for the first time after WWII. The Callahan/ Gentile family has never missed a summer at Higgins in 66 years! Over the years, the family has grown exponentially and all of its members have developed Philip's love and attachment to Higgins. Today, over 30 family members and friends, including several 4th generation Higgins Beachers make an annual trip or two to Higgins. As the family grew in size, it was increasingly difficult to find enough homes to rent to allow the family to be together at the beach they all love so much.
Property Manager purchased this House in 2013
Why Property Manager chose Scarborough
Location, location, location! The idea of Family Tides was born out of love for Higgins Beach and out of necessity; a big house where multiple families and generations can gather to enjoy this great place! We know many families share similar histories and love for Higgins. We hope this house will allow other families and friends to all stay under one roof and create memories of their own for decades to come.
What makes this House unique
Newly constructed with breathtaking views, top of the line amenities, and space to accommodate large or multi-families. All directly across from the beach!
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Fabulous Family Vacation
This house is absolutely perfect! The enormous kitchen and dining area allowed us to comfortably feed 16 people all weekend. Plenty of bathrooms bedrooms and hang out space. The location is wonderful only steps from the beach! Rent this place, it will not disappoint
Thank you, Katie! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and the
property, and hope that you will visit us again.
We had a great time. The property is new, clean, and spacious.
We had a great time. The location across the street from the beach was perfect. The home itself is bright, clean, and spacious. They had some baby gear on hand, too, which was really helpful to us (pack n play, bed rails). Having to bring our own linens was the only downside, but I understand that this is the case with many rental homes in the area.
Thank you, Ashley!
We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and found the home comfortable.
We are sorry for the inconvenience of not including linens.
Hoping to see you again in the future!
Amazing home perfect for large families with children!
Our family of four, two under 4 years of age, shared an amazing 5 days at this property. The house is very well laid out for multiple families or one large extended family. The kitchen is fully loaded, so we enjoyed lots of cooking and family dinners looking out over Higgins Beach. Only steps across a quiet street to enjoy Higgins Beach. Our kids loved riding their bikes around the quiet streets and over to the end of the beach where the shipwreck is. Lots of areas to explore. Location is close to many touristy spots along the coast of Maine, as well as a short drive into Portland. We hope to spend another week there next year. High quality construction and amazing views of the ocean from every spot in the house. Amazing!!
Winter sports 20-45 minutes away; three season sports 10 minutes to one hour; sport fishing, duck boat tours, whale watching, four star dining, and fabulous shopping 15 minutes! This home is close to it all!
