Wonderful apartment in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place. Clean, fresh and newly updated. Well equipped kitchen, which is bright and sunny. Laundry facilities, clean shower, and comfortable beds. Lovely private deck off the back. The best thing is the location. A short walk to Willard Beach and three doors down from Scratch Bakery. Easy to get to Portland, Freeport. Jennifer is a wonderful host, very attentive to my needs. I will be looking forward to my next visit.

This was the perfect vacation spot for us! The property was even prettier in person than the photos showed! Everything was clean and neat and all the things we needed for cooking or beach visits were provided. I especially enjoyed spending time on the covered porch. Jennifer was a lovely host, always friendly and helpful. The Willard Beach area is a charming spot to visit. This property is perfectly located near the beach, the Bakery, the Ice Cream Parlor! I would definitely recommend this property to friends or relatives. Particularly if they were vacationing with children/grandchildren! My children and their families all had a place just a few blocks from us, so this made for a really nice family vacation. While in South Portland we dined one night at Davids Restaurant and had a wonderful meal and a wonderful time. Otherwise, we enjoyed a variety of lobster rolls and fresh lobster each and every day!! We are hoping to return!!!

Absolute dream rental!

  • 5 of 5

This home is clean & well furnished with cheerful original art work. It has all the comforts of home - stainless appliances, granite counter tops, and an excellent kitchen. The plantation shutters and screens are a nice touch on the windows. The owner is fantastic and very helpful and responsive while still being unintrusive. The location, in a safe and friendly neighborhood, can't be beat. It's a short walk to the beach, bakery, ice cream, and two playgrounds. A 30 minute walk to the library & grocery store. It's 10 min or less by car into Portland. Our family was here for 6 weeks & we're already trying to figure out when we can come back!

Great Willard Beach rental!

  • 5 of 5

I was most pleased with this rental; had all the amenities, including a full sized washer and dryer and modern kitchen. Well appointed and includes a deck overlooking a charming back lawn with vegetable and flower gardens.

Only four doors up from Scratch Baking Co. and a short walk down to Willard Beach. The owner is a most charming woman and local artist who has a flare for making her rental guests feel welcome!

Willard Square rental

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely first floor 2 bedroom apartment with a beautifully updated kitchen. We rented for two weeks while helping our daughter move to Portland for a new job. Owner was very accommodating and helpful with suggestions for our shopping needs for our daughter's new apartment. It was also wonderful that she had beach chairs and towels because out cars were absolutely packed with our daughter's belongings and had no room to bring our own. While we ended up not bringing our two small dogs with us we could have - and it's a great neighborhood for walking dogs and they are allowed on the beach from 7am-9am and 7pm to 9pm. Lots of fun to watch the dogs play! It is a great area to use as a "home base" while exploring Maine. We made several side trips to Boothbay, Camden, Kennebunkport and even up to Acadia for a day. The scenic Portland Head Light is a nice walk or 5 minute drive away and downtown Portland is a quick 10 minute drive and lovely to explore. A minute's walk brings you to yummy Scratch bakery where my husband got a bagel almost daily, and Scoops ice cream shop with delicious home made ice cream. The only reason this is getting a 4 star instead of 5 star is that if you sleep in the front bedroom there is early morning car and foot traffic heading to the bakery, which is only a problem if the windows are open or you really like to sleep in late! I would highly recommend this property and would return again!
