About Carole Troy

A former Ct. Resident and A summer resident of Maine every year of my life with deep Maine Roots..Our family owned several cottages and opened the Coffee Cup Restaurant on Peaks Island in Casco Bay, now known as 'The Cockeyed Gull'. I have been a rentor and now I rent out my places.

Maine is the place to be in the summer! Especially on the Ocean!

I started out going to my Dad's summer cottage In Casco Bay most every summer. From there I became interested in acquiring my own place for my family to enjoy. I have experience with being a renter myself having traveled extensively

and continue to do so. I expect a pleasant stay and I choose the best spots that I possibly can stay .Spent years on Sanibel Isl .!

I love collecting seashells,sea glass, fine art ,antiques and I enjoy decorating . My six grandchildren love visiting Maine . I know your family will want to visit you too as the "Cottage" is appealing to all. They won't want to leave!


miss it for the world. It's the only place to be in the summer! You will be amazed ! Nothing compares!

Week with family in Idyllic house and setting

  • 5 of 5

After some significant back and forth with family members in the northeast US,

my wife and I decided to go with a clearly spectacular choice for a beach vacation even though it was a bit of a budget buster. This house really right on the water on the Maine coast had

a lot going for it. East facing views from the house and deck are totally unobstructed. A low line of rocks protect a nice width of grass and a row of wild rose bushes from the surf, but allowed perfect views of sun- and moon-rise over the ocean. We were lucky to have a full moon rise early in the evening, and just one rainy day where we didn't want to spend much of the day on the beach just a short short walk to north. So convenient to be able to store your beach chairs 50 feet from where you wanted to set them up in the morning, and to be able to walk back to the house in minutes. We (7 adults and three kids; 4-9) all enjoyed the wide beach which never seemed to be crowed even though the weather was near perfect. Great place to walk and run, investigate tidal pools, and to collect rocks, and shells. The house within was great for this size group, nicely finished and perfectly furnished. Every bed room has view of ocean. Great places to get takeout food and groceries nearby. I expect we will be trying to go back gain next year.

This family-owned home is fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This is an actual home on the beach in Maine. Not your average rental. Our kids and grandkids loved the beach as much as we did, the rocky coastline and skies. We were welcomed by a family member. They love the home and it shows. We spent every moment we could outside, watching the tides, playing in the surf. The village of Biddeford Pool has a tiny market where we picked up additional groceries. A 35 minute drive to Portland Museum of Art and the Children's Museum, the old port and tons of great restaurants. We spent just one afternoon/ evening in Portland choosing instead to be entertained by the sea and sheltered by this beautiful home.

We so enjoyed our stay at and could not believe the views from this home.

It is far from your typical cottage.Everything was perfect including the location . We have vacationed throughout the world, however this home was beyond our expectation. We can't wait to return next year. I wish I could give it a rate more than 5 stars!

Incredible Beachfront Property

  • 5 of 5

It was our 1st time to the Kennebunkport area. Family and friends came for a reunion. The house was perfect. The home exceeded our expectations. Sea Roses, crashing waves & long walks on the beach. We loved it. We are planning our return visit next year.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful place with our family.

A Vacation PARADISE.

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing!! We had 6 adults and 4 children. There was plenty of space for all of us. The house is well maintained and clean. It has everything and everything went smoothly due to the welcoming owner. The home has views that are EXTRAORDINARY!!!!. We can't say enough as words cannot describe the beauty of the area. Walking the long sandy BEACH is a delight to the senses and our family went home relaxed and rejuvenated. We had a great time and made many memories!!

Thank you!!

Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

This location is not your typical or average place to stay. This is a truly unique property and the area is delightful. The home is immaculate and has everything you could want for a vacation a home away from home. Amenities include a wonderful eat-in kitchen, multiple bedrooms, parking places for several cars, and wonderful yard. You can see the ocean from every room! The owner takes excellent care of property and grounds and makes the process of renting go smoothly. The place and surroundings are the best in all of southern Maine. It's views are awesome . We particularly liked the sea life. There is nothing better than watching the lobster boats go out in the early a.m. will enjoying a cup of coffee in the kitchen, and then sipping a glass on wine on the deck while watching them come home. Walk to a wonderful clean beach. Lots of things to do in the area: antique, shop, great restaurants, if you can bear to leave the oceanfront property!!
