Comfortable basement apartment

  • 5 of 5

Lovely and very roomy walk-out basement apartment! The beds were comfortable, the shower was great, and the setting was beautiful and convenient to Portland and the beach. Scarborough is a lovely little town! The hosts were very nice and accommodating and made a couple of great dinner suggestions. Would definitely stay there again!

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.
