We chose this property or rather it chose us. One year before the property came on the market,my husband and I drove by the cottage and I remarked to him how cute it was and we would own it someday. We both laughed . A year later who knew it would become ours.

Low frills, but comfortable beach house
This house was as we expected—nothing fancy, but clean enough to be comfortable. The neighborhood is very nice. It’s quiet and pretty. The washing machine had a leak, but we were only there a week so just avoided using it. I expect it will be fixed for future renters. If you are low maintenance and like the beach, it’s a good choice!
This cozy little bungalow is a specail little hide away for yourself or family. Purely wonderful.
The Bungalow at Higgins Beach is an experience; perhaps like staying in a light-keepers house. We walked into a lovely, clean, artfully decorated, privately owned little beach house. Amenities were perfect for us and we needed nothing except to buy a few things for the fridge and some coffee for the coffeepot! The screened in porch was a bonus for evening meals as crickets sing and the tidal waves against the shore could be heard in the distance. The screened porch was also very inviting to enjoy coffee and newspaper while light morning showers passed over. Although we were there during some very warm days, the bungalow never felt too hot and always cooled off nicely in the evening as well. There are lots of shade trees and shrubs that help keep it nice all day.
The bungalow is augmented with beach and lighthouse themes throughout and the beds were very comfortable with lovely quilts on each. The comfort of this beach house cannot be overstated with its sense of quiet and rest. A short walk to the beach was just right and we enjoyed meeting the nice folks living at Higgins Beach. The Rachael Carson National Wildlife Refuge surrounds the back yard and is accessible for viewing by a little road to a private island. We enjoyed walking the road and taking advantage of wonderful photo opportunities.
We enjoyed a family barbecue and loved sitting at the picnic table outside. The grill was as clean as the bungalow inside and the owners made sure that propane was full before we used the grill. Clean up was so easy as in this little cabin, everything has a place!
Mary Ann and her husband are wonderful hosts and we needed almost nothing. If we did need something, they personally delivered it. We loved their personal touch and warm welcome with fresh farm cut sunflowers waiting for me in a vase on the table. One can see by how beautifully they take care of this little bungalow how much they love it.
One evening, while sitting on the front porch in the dark of night, my sister and I were enjoying a cup of tea and listening to the waves on the beach in the distance when suddenly we saw a falling star streaming across the sky against the night. It seemed so close. We were amazed and a bit spellbound!
There is nothing not to love about The Bungalow at Higgins Beach. I would love to have stayed all summer and plan to stay again if it is available to us.
We loved our vacation but we had to clean the place when we arrived! It was quite dirty! After 3h of cleaning, it was ok.
This person was first renter of season. 3 weeks before their arrival we spent 450.00 having it cleaned. I received a call telling me the draws in kitchen weren't organized. I had to go by wine glasses and a bunch of other things to make them happy. I guess you can't make everyone happy. Some people just have to complain. All other guest of the summer have had no complaints at all. You rented a summer cottage .
Bungalow at Higgins Beach
The cottage had everything we needed for our one week stay. Great location in a nice neighborhood,just a short stroll down to the beach, and close to Portland and other points of interest.
I loved the place, Higgins beach is marvellous
Unfortunately, I had to clean the kitchen, every drawers had mice’s excrements in, and there’s was full of unnesssrary things in the kitchen, but no place to put our groceries. I cleaned also the littles carpets in the kitchen and in the bathroom, they were dark and with hairs on them. There was full of dust on the refrigerator and on the drier for clothes. I had to wash every items that was dusty and who didn’ t serve since a lot of time. There was only one glass for the wine and only two spoons for the soup, no soup bols, nor dessert plates, only bigs plates.
We received those items but only after having lodging a demand at HomeAway. I let before message to the owner’ phone or message box but no answers. It was my first experience with HomeAway and I was deceived because I thought that there was supposed to have a better quality or supervision concerning the state of the cottage at our arrival. I am not a complainant person. I let the cottage more clean that it was when I arrived. Sorr for my English, I am à French speaking person.
