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.

Wonderful accommodation

  • 4 of 5

This was a great self catering apartment with a very large space. The location was perfect and the owners have a great recommendation for a local restaurant.

Owner's Response: So many people have commented on how surprisingly spacious it is- plenty of room for a family to spread out, especially convenient when the weather isn't cooperating with beach plans. So glad you enjoyed it and we hope to see you again next year!

More than we expected

  • 4 of 5

Our family had an amazing week staying at Ocean Breezes. Our hosts were amazing and did everything they could to ensure our stay was good. The basement walk-out apartment was extremely spacious, clean, and comfortable. The property itself is exquisite, with a private seating area, and a larger yard with a patio table and chairs. Our hosts even offered some fresh blueberries and herbs that were growing in the garden. For our family, the proximity to Higgins Beach was very important because we planned to spend a lot of time on the beach. For this reason and the fact that we stayed for 7 days and have 2 young kids, it would have been nice to have laundry facilities on site or a clothesline outside to hang up wet towels and bathing suits. That said, we were extremely pleased with the accommodations. Thanks again to Patricia and Rick! Hope to see you again next year.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We enjoy sharing our great property with others. We don't mind if people use the outdoor furniture (there is plenty of it) to hang their wet towels and clothes. Had we known you needed more- we would have gladly assisted! Thank you for being such gracious guests- we loved having you. Hope to see you next year.

Calm and charming little loft

  • 5 of 5

We contacted the house manager very last minute, we had a quick reply, and by luck we were able to get the place for a 3 day week-end. They were easy to reach when we arrived (they live upstairs, and answer their phones), and everything was ready for us. They even had prepared a little red wine bottle and some toffee treats, as well as a welcome letter, and a little booklet with all de good-to-know stuff about the house, and the area.

It is a semi-basement, but it has a private entrance in a lush and cozy garden, it gets good daylight in, and you will appreciate the warmth of a gas-fireplace after your late october surf session. It has a comfortable bed and a basic sofa bed, and a big sectional sofa, and there's 2 tables that sit 4. Books, games and magazines will get you through cold evenings by the fire, as will the choice of dvd's or access to movies on the tv.

If you want to cook meals, there is very little other options other than the barbecue, so you may want to consider eating out, there's a very cute little hotel with good food at a walking distance, close to the beach. Otherwise, you'll have to take your car, Higgins Beach is a small and charming little neighborhood, but the beach area is mostly residential, and few options are at a stone's throw. Make sure you have food and drinks readily available before starting your beach day.

We were a bit late for our checkout time, and although they were a bit concerned (the cleaning company that comes after will charge them extra if guests are still in the house), in the end they were very cool about it and we received our deposit within a week after we left, accompanied with a lovely little note by the owner.

We really appreciated our short stay here, and we would greatly recommend anyone who wants a calm, warm and welcoming little open-space appartment for 4.

Thanks Patricia!

Owner's Response: The tranquil environment after Labor Day provides a wonderful respite and backdrop for autumn's wonder in New England. The drawback is that the local market has closed and only 1 restaurant is within walking distance. Our grill, microwave, hot plates and toaster oven are useful, but will not suffice for those who wish to have the use of an oven. However, several delightful restaurants for all budgets are within a 15 minute drive, many offering local fare. Portland is fast becoming a renowned food destination.
