A four star restaurant (Diamond's Edge) is nearby on the island. Ideal for a family vacation, or for people who just want to relax. Pets are welcome.

Manager info

About: We live in Ipswich, MA and I rent the house for my parents to pay for the city property taxes. We rent simply to cover the taxes, and spend the rest of the time up there ourselves.

Why Great Diamond Island, Portland, Maine, United States of America:
My family spends all of the time we can up here during the summer because it is relaxing and beautiful. We would live there if it could be summer year-round. July and August are the best summer months, but September is a special secret time that is simply fantastic on the island.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is very relaxing. You can spend a lot of time sitting on the porch or the balcony and reading a book and watching the boats go by. A quick stroll on the beach or a swim on hot days is one of our favorite things to do.
