About the property

oceanfront on beautiful private beach, 3 bedrm, 1 bath w deck and screened porch

A beautiful and peaceful beach location! This three bedroom oceanfront home is nestled in pine trees in the desirable Bayview area, offering great views of Saco Bay. Features include a large screened-in front porch overlooking Saco Bay (with a beautiful view of sunrise over the bay), a 40 ft. long boardwalk to the spacious private sandy beach (excellent for swimming or launching kayaks, paddleboards) , a beachside deck which is the perfect spot for morning coffee or evening cocktails, and an outdoor shower. Two bedrooms have windows with ocean views. The kitchen is fully equipped and the dining table can seat 8.

The private beach provides the perfect place to relax or enjoy many beach activities. You will not want to leave the beach! But if you want more to do, this location has plenty to offer. You have not only seven miles of sandy beach in front of the house, but also the peaceful nature trails (running, walking, biking) and blueberry bushes of lovely wooded Ferry Beach State Park at your back door. The tranquility of the Atlantic Way Trails of the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge are within a mile. The seaside fishing village of Camp Ellis with its seafood restaurants, fishing pier, lobster pounds, kayak rentals, whale watching tours and deep sea fishing boats is less than a mile down the beach. Walk along the beach in the other direction to Ocean Park, a summer community with frequent family-oriented events and the ice cream soda fountain. One mile past Ocean Park is Old Orchard with amusement park rides, pizza, bars, entertainment and the pier. Portland's Old Port shops and restaurants are just a 30 minute drive. Or head south to shop in Kennebunkport, a 30 minute drive.

Relax and enjoy a peaceful week at this quiet beach and experience all that this beautiful area has to offer!

Easy I-95 access, 20 minutes to the Portland Jetport (PWM), and 2 miles to the Amtrak station.

About Georgia Brown

Hi, i'm Georgia. My sisters and I started renting out this house for summer weeks beginning in 2013. Two of us live nearby to manage the property.

Georgia Brown purchased this bungalow in 1982

Why Georgia Brown chose Southern Coast

I hope you love this place as much as we do. Our family has been enjoying this Saco beach for generations, creating lifelong memories.

What makes this bungalow unique

This house is right at the center of such natural beauty! Looking out to the ocean, Eagle Island is offshore directly in front of the house. (Superb sunrise vantage point right from the house!) Walk out the back door down the driveway and cross the road and you are in the wooded beauty of Ferry Beach State Park with lovely nature trails. You also have the Saco River and the fishing pier in tiny Camp Ellis less than a mile to the south, where you can view stunning sunsets.

Family of five

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time my family rented this cottage on the beach. It feels like a home away from home for us. There is nothing better than having a private beach right out the back door. We enjoyed meals on the beachside deck, the spectacular sunrises and sunsets, and the quiet privacy this cottage provides. The location is peaceful and serene, but not remote. There is plenty to do and see locally if you manage to rally yourself from the beach. Clean, comfortable, quiet, and beautiful. What more could you hope for in a vacation rental? The owner is friendly and accommodating as well. A little slice of beach heaven!

Quintessential Maine!

  • 5 of 5

We really had a great time in this peaceful, perfectly located cottage. Great views from the fabulous porch and great beachcombing at low tide. Listening to the waves while sleeping at night was just icing on the cake. Such fun! Already reserved it for next year and we can't wait!

Owner's Response: We are glad you liked the cottage and had a great sunny week for the beach. We spent some time upgrading the twin bed and couch, newly painted bedrooms, new steps and railing out front. But the thing that makes this house very special is the great beach in front, the peacefulness, and the privacy. Loved hearing about your clamming success out front and your clam chowder lunch and lobster dinner! Sounded like a perfect vacation. Lyn, thank you for your review.

Ferry Beach Cabin

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoyed this cabin. It was the perfect hideaway for me and my family. The house could sure use some upgrading.....though its charm made it easy to overlook. I wasn't a fan of all of the old carpet.....too easy to track in sand from the beach so I found myself cleaning every day....which is not why I go away on vacation. Still....I'd rent it again for the location and the privacy. Loved the outdoor shower!
