About the property

Cottage on private beach directly on Hills Beach! Can't get any closer to water!

Great cozy cottage DIRECTLY on the private beach portion of beautiful Hills Beach. Gorgeous direct full views of the ocean, Saco Bay and Basket Island. Deck overlooking beach and just a few small steps right down onto the sand-you can't get any closer to the beach unless you are in a houseboat! Soft sand, gentle surf and current-safe and easy ocean play, walking and swimming for all. Main level has two bedrooms, a queen in one, full in the other. Also on main level is an open kitchen and dining area, dining table has seating for 6. One full bath and one half bath. Living room with full ocean view, including sliders that walk out onto your deck. Accessory room downstairs (basement level) with an additional queen bed in it. Also included is a side yard with a stone fire pit and gas grill. Parking in opposite side yard for up to two cars maximum. Stairs right at end of deck step right down onto sand of private beach, shared by only adjacent neighbors. Great beach for long walks, exploring islands (can walk to at low tides!), collecting sand dollars, fishing, swimming, kayaking, etc. Quiet and relaxing environment, a real little bit of heaven!

The 3 R's

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 arrived on a beautiful day in July. After we unpacked, putting everything in it's place, my husband and I immediately grabbed a drink and relaxed out on the deck while watching the kids playing in the water. After great nights' rest, I knew we hit the jackpot when I woke to a picture perfect sunrises. The week was full of rejuvenating experiences: eating the delicious food at the Bufflehead (yummo), going to a trampoline park, jet skiing out on the ocean(WHAT!). The most memorable though were right the at the house: the nightly fires, the clam digging and walking out to the island at low tide, and sitting on the deck watching the ocean scene and sunsets. Thank you a restful, relaxing, and rejuvenating vacation.

Amazing views from the cottage and deck.

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was located right on the beach, we spent most of time on the deck overlooking the ocean. We had breakfast, lunch, and wine out there. So relaxing, we had a bonfire a couple of nights. Only drawback was the stairs to the beach were pulled up because of the storm the previous days. So we had to go a little way to get beach access. Two thumbs up

Well here is our honest opinion. The cottage is 1950ish yes, older. It has some issues but it should be expected from an older beach cottage. The floor plan is very open which makes it nice to chat from all areas. The living-room walls are all glass ie. sliders windows.........Spectacular in a word. It really is full of personality you can tell it is much loved by the owners.The area it self is fantastic so clean and peacefully quiet! The only reason we gave it 4 stars is because the bedrooms are only large enough for the beds to fit -up next to the walls,can not get in and out to easily. But we are senior bodies. But we survived! All the time we stayed was great,walked out to Basket Island met some very friendly people. Yes, we had a wonderful time! Thank you Pete!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your stay and for your feedback. Unfortunately we obviously can't change the size of the rooms as it is a 1950's period cottage. But we have supplied it with comfortable updated beds. Aside from that we're glad you enjoyed your stay.

Maine Beach House

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful location. This was an amazing trip and we absolutely loved the property. The only reason it's getting four stars is because after the trip was purchased, we were notified by the homeowner and told we needed to bring our own linens. Bed sheets, blankets, towels.... everything. Which of course we couldn't, because we live across the country. So we purchased everything when we got there, but then was unable to wash anything because the washer/dryer room wasn't available to us. Huge expensive inconvenience. We loved the location though.

Owner's Response: We're glad you had a good time at our beach cottage. We're sorry you had confusion on the amenities. The listing does not offer washer and dryer on premises and does not offer linens and towels. We do provide bed spreads, pillows and some extra blankets though. Information had also been sent to you about your stay by us through VRBO. We had followed up to confirm you had received it but never heard back. In any instance we're glad you enjoyed the property and location so much.

Beautiful and relaxing. Just what the "Dr. " ordered.

Make sure you bring what you need, so you don't have to take very many trips in town. You will not want to leave.

Clean, quiet and cozy. Lots of beach walking, island hopping, fishing and (bonus) fire pit in yard for outside activities.

The morning sunrise on the decks are breathtaking. The kitchen has all the amenities you need for cooking andI love the indoor/ outdoor option for dining. It is best to cook your lobsters / clams outdoors and eat them on the huge wood table and leave the house with no smells. It not a rule of the house, but it should be. There was a slight fly issue upon arriving but was easily solved the first day with fly strips.

I would recommend this place butI don't want it to be booked when we rent it again. ;)

Thank you to the owners for sharing thier slice of heaven with us. :) ♡
