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

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!
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Paying with a credit card on VRBO protects your payment for up to $10,000 against listing fraud. We recommend completing your booking on VRBO.Learn more
