Our hosts were lovely. Apartment is spacious with plenty of room to spread out. Garden is beautiful and private. Only minutes walking distance to the beach and to a cute little general store. We would definitely return.

Nice quiet retreat

  • 4 of 5

It was great to be able to walk less than a half mile to the coastline. And for the record Higgins Beach is one of the most gorgeous shorelines in New England. A great place to stay. Hosts were very helpful and kind.

The apartment was very comfortable, spacious, and nicely decorated. We appreciated being able to borrow beach chairs and bikes to take the short ride to Higgins Beach. Will definitely stay again!

Great Weekend Loccation

  • 5 of 5

While transitioning from the foil foliage in the White Mountains to a few days in Boston, we stopped over for two nights in Scarborough to check out the Portland area. We were pleased to find the accommodations very comfortable and convenient to the area. The apartment is most spacious and tastefully furnished and decorated. Patricia was very accommodating and gave us suggestions for the Scarborough area as well as Portland harbor. We would not hesitate to stay again if we travel to the Portland area.
