About the Property

Bright, comfortable & convenient. Remodeled 4brm house in perfect summer locale!

Spacious, comfortable and convenient. Newly renovated house with 4 bedrooms (one on ground floor), high-end appliances, all new linens, mattresses and *furnishings. Perfect place for making memories of whole family vacations or romantic couple retreats!

Overlooking lovely Willard Square, the Blue House is the ideal home-base for your coastal Maine vacation. Willard Square maintains a laid-back beach village vibe with small shops including Willard Scoops ice cream, Scratch Bakery and The Whole Dog Market (for dogs and their people). Blue House is just a short walk to family-favorite Willard Beach, Cottage Street shops, antique markets, Portland Players community theater, and a variety of restaurants. Enjoy local kayaking, deep sea fishing, whale watching, and harbor cruises, or walk a beach path toward the lighthouse and watch the lobster boats come in. Just 3 miles away are Portland’s hot spots, museums and charming Old Port; amusement parks and summer boardwalks are a short drive away; and serious shoppers can also hit two extraordinary outlet malls—Kittery and Freeport.

Fully-equipped kitchen for cooking and dining. Laundry room with large capacity washer/dryer and supplies. Linens, bath and beach towels are provided. Kids and Baby equipment and supplies are available upon request.

Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the property.

****House & Amenities
• Approximately 2,117 square foot house on a 7,500 square foot corner lot
• 2-story house with 2 staircases facilitates flow and allows everyone to have their own space.
• Sleeps 8 comfortably, or 10 maximum. All guests must be listed on rental agreement.
• Free wireless internet and satellite TV. Desk with inkjet printer.
• 2 flat-screen SMART TVs
• Spacious kitchen with quartz countertops, Thomasville cabinetry and an 80” long farm table. Additional kitchen features include: large French door refrigerator with roomy lower drawer freezer; gas range with pot-filler water spigot; 2 ovens (convection included); microwave oven; dishwasher; garbage disposal; Royal Doulton everyday porcelain dinnerware (12 sets); 18/10 stainless flatware (12 sets); Krups (K-cup) coffee maker; pots, pans, cookware, and cooking utensils.
• Convenient laundry room. Beach goers return through side-entry and leave sandy towels in the laundry room on their way into the house.

• Air conditioning
• Small front deck with picnic table looks out onto shady lawn and Willard Square.
• Side yard is enclosed with 6 foot high cedar fencing.
• Driveway parking (2 cars)

Please note, for safety reasons and because the plumbing and furnishings are very delicate and expensive, the barn door and spa bathroom may only be accessed by adults.

Blue House sleeps 6 adults + 2 children comfortably (10 people maximum). There are 1 king and 2 queen size beds in upstairs bedrooms, and 1 queen bed in the downstairs bedroom. The upstairs middle bedroom is ideal for kids--it has a small TV and a curtained entry way (no door), as well as an adjoining door to another queen bedroom. In addition, in the downstairs open living area, there is a daybed with a floor-level trundle bed (both beds are twin size with firm memory foam mattresses.).

Pictures of each bathroom and sleeping area are included with this listing.

Optional Supplies (available upon request)

For children: portable play yard/crib [Graco Pack 'n Play] with mattress, linens, and mattress pads; bed rail, high chair, booster seat, splat mat, toddler tableware/utensils/sippy cups, jogging stroller, books, safety gates, and sand toys!

Thinking of throwing a house party? This is NOT the house for it. Please do not inquire. Out of consideration for our neighbors and our family who regularly enjoys Blue House, we only seek mature, responsible renters who will leave Blue House in the same excellent condition in which they found it at check-in.

Non-refundable, pay upfront discount rate option is available. Inquire if interested.

All payments are non-refundable, so trip cancellation insurance is always encouraged!
