Overview

About the property

4 bedroom house 2.5 bathrooms sleeps 8+ approximately 2000 SF. Beautiful house!

This property is ideal for providing an excellent accommodation for a family or groups that want to live in comfort for their stay. There are 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, with the 4th bedroom being a finished basement area that can be used as a children's play area. The house is meticulously cared for. It also has a gazebo, front and back fenced yards, and is located near the beach and close to all amenities. If one wants to relax a bit away from the more busy areas of Portland, yet still be right in the middle of everything that the Portland area offers, this is a perfect situation to do so.

Inside, on the upper floor there are 3 gorgeous bedrooms that are tastefully decorated, while at the same time offering a cozy place of retreat. On the main floor there is a large area to gather, watch television, surf the internet (via WiFi or provided Ethernet cable), or plan for a day's excursions. In the lower floor/basement, there is a large area that is great for children to play in, as well as housing a television for children's dvds. This area also has a fold-out bed for added convenience and comfort. Everything imaginable is provided with the house to make your stay one to remember, from quality linens and sheets, to a washer and dryer with detergent, or a wireless printer for accessing documents that may need to be printed from a phone or laptop.

Outside, there is a large area that is perfect for letting the kids play or enjoying the fresh air. This property is also well-suited for off-season stays as it enjoys a whole-house automatic back-up generator and a location that makes for easy access to amenities in any season.

About Timothy Bryan

We are a simple family that had the good fortune of discovering Maine later in life, and decided to make it a permanent fixture of our lives. We hope that all of our guests will enjoy themselves and find what a wonderful area South Portland and its near-environs truly are.

Timothy Bryan purchased this house in 2009

Why Timothy Bryan chose Willard

It is difficult to find newer houses in the South Portland area that have a good location to the beach and various businesses, but our house--built in 2005 and continuously kept in an excellent condition--gave us the opportunity to have just that.

What makes this house unique

The best benefits of our house are its great location and substantial size. You can stay in our house and not worry about running out of space, while at the same time you can be anywhere in the Portland area in a very short time. We have dedicated ourselves to ensuring you will be comfortable and happy with your stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The air mattresses were well appreciated, as well as the clean house, which had everything we needed. We'll be sure to recommend our experience to friends back home!

Peaceful and organized

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a great stay! Everything was so clean and organized. I do recommend TVs in the bedrooms for those (husbands) who like that. We enjoyed our walks to the beach which was a mile and a half roundtrip. Enjoyed the bagleshop across the street and made groceries at the Hannaford around the corner!!! It was 6 of us and we had a great time. hope to see you next year!

The house was very spacious, great to have 2.5 baths with 8 of us including 2 kids. Towels sheets pillows and air beds were plentiful. The location was very convenient to all of So Portland and easy Uber to Portland. Also Willard beach was very close and very nice. Would definitely stay again.

Great Stay in South Portland

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great and the home was perfect. My family was in town for a wedding and the location was just right for many of our activities, including visits to Old Port, a boat cruise, sightseeing to lighthouses, beaches, etc. The home was clean, updated, comfortable and ideal for us. We would definitely stay here again on our next trip back and recommend it to others who are looking for a place to stay. Thank You!

Perfect Family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay with our family, four dogs, and baby. Plenty of toys for all age kids, high chair, portable crib, and huge fenced area for the dogs to play in. Great location just across the bridge from Portland in a quiet, walkable area. With an amazing bakery/coffee place literally across the street. We’ll definitely want to come back.

Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time at this house and we were definitely glad we went back. The house is a short ride to downtown and on a nice quiet street. The house has plenty of space for everyone and all the amenities you would need.

Car: recommended

Located in the heart of South Portland within easy walking distance to both Willard Beach and Portland "Bug" lighthouse, the location is ideal for families and groups to explore the whole Portland area. Shopping and cuisine are within a very short walk or drive, and the Portland "Old Port" area can be reached by driving or taking the walking path across the bridge linking Portland and South Portland.

Additionally, there are multiple parks and businesses within the local area that provide all the services that one could require, as well as offering the benefit of having a family-friendly and peaceful surrounding. South Portland also has the largest mall in Maine that can be reached by a short drive, and the house's location is literally surrounded by the ocean within a few minutes walk in multiple directions. All amenities that could be sought after are easily reachable, and this location is truly in a central location for enjoying the sights of Maine.
