About Jill Costello
A New England native who has lived in California, Russia, Chile and the Netherlands, for years I was a homeowner on Plum Island in Newburyport, Massachusetts, where I lived in the off-season and enjoyed meeting the many great families from across the country and around the world who rented my home for their summer vacations. Our family recently moved to Kittery, where we continue to enjoy the relaxed lifestyle and natural beauty of the Seacoast area plus all the culture of Portsmouth. We are embracing Maine's motto, "The way life should be." We live next door to the rental apartment and look forward to sharing our love of the Seacoast with you!
Jill Costello purchased this Townhome in 2015
Why Jill Costello chose Kittery
This home offers an ideal mix of a quiet neighborhood (see all the stars at night!) and proximity to Portsmouth. There are many great places within easy walking distance whether you want culture, delicious food and drink, live music, theater, water adventures, or just a beautiful stroll. And within 15 minutes' drive away are many beaches, historical sites, fun activities, shops and more. The apartment is modern, spacious, clean and sunny. The view from the living room is spectacular year round. And there is a spa right next door.

Excellent, clean, property
Property was in a great location, immaculately clean and bright. Jill greeted us when we arrived and couldn't have been nicer. We walked to Badger Island and Portsmouth. Great location and views. Would definitely stay again.
Thank you so much for your review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and took advantage of the location to explore. Hope to have you back again!
Convenient Location to Portsmouth
We enjoyed our two week vacation in this apartment located just over the bridge from Portsmouth. Full access to two car garage was a unique perk for our bikes and sports equipment. Easy access to beach, paddling, and Portsmouth history, cultural and night life.
Jill was very easy to communicate with.
The photos do not do justice to the wonderful water views from this apartment. The location is great, convenient to Maine beaches and a short walk into charming downtown Portsmouth. The apartment is well-equipped and well-furnished. Highly recommended. We would happily stay there again.
Wonderful! Great location!
Exceptionally clean and bright apartment! Very comfortable and convenient to Portsmouth and the outlet stores. We plan to return.
Beautiful, well-kept home in a great location
This is a great house, and Jill is a wonderful host. The location was also really convenient for us. The only downsides were related to our specific situation with two very young children. The house is on two levels (second and third floor) and the stairs are a bit of a hazard for the under two set. Also, the bedrooms are on different floors, so we ended up sleeping on the pullout couch in the living room so we could be on the same floor as the kids. Additionally, there's no tub, which made bathtime a bit challenging. Again, those were no fault of the house or Jill - simply issues we dealt with having the littles with us. The property is immaculate and has stunning views of the river. The living room also gets an amazing cross breeze with all those windows - very helpful on hot summer nights! Would highly recommend to anyone visiting the seacoast!
Clean and comfortable, in a great location!
The apartment was really well located, within walking distance of Kittery and Portsmouth restaurants. It has a really nice view of the river. The living room is really large and comfy and the washer-dryer were very useful. The bunk beds were not really comfortable for our two teenagers, but might be ok for younger children. Thanks Jill!
This is a very special place, with the best of all New England has to offer in easy reach - much of it without even needing a car! Quaint homes, churches and brick town centers; beautiful beaches, rivers and woods; historic forts and parks; hiking, skiing, biking, swimming; fantastic restaurants, theater and music; proximity to Boston, Portland and the towns and beaches of Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Oh, and some of the best sunsets you'll find. Opt for Kittery/Portsmouth over the crowds and traffic of York or Cape Cod, you'll never go back!
