About Brenda Peluso
This is the house I grew up in. My parents bought the house in 1967 when living on Willard Beach wasn't a particularly desirable thing to do! In 1999, we built an in-law apartment for my father and moved back into the main house which is attached to the apartment by a shared breezeway. My father passed away last year and we renovated his space and are happy to offer it to people (with or without their canine family members) on a weekly or monthly basis. I love Maine and South Portland and am happy to share my love of and history with this fabulous place with vacationers. Of course, I am also happy to leave you completely in peace!

Why Brenda Peluso chose Willard Beach
I was so thrilled to move back to the beach house I grew up in and give my children the same opportunities I had as a child. This area is just so great. Good schools, close to downtown Portland and all that Portland has to offer. All this and in a neighborhood that is totally walkable, with access to the beach, the Greenbelt, and Willard Square. You couldn't ask for a better neighborhood to raise a family, live and grow old in!
What makes this Apartment unique
Vacationers will see why I fell in love with this place. The views coming down the street, out the unit's windows, and strolling along the beach are amazing. Enjoying your morning coffee in the sky chair on the back porch with the birds chirping, the surf rolling in and the boats cruising by is hard to beat. The convenience of being so close to Willard Square, Mill Creek, and downtown Portland are another reason this place is so great. As realtors always say, "location, location, location."

Very pretty and very clean. Lovely touches by the owner made us feel very welcome. She provided a binder with restaurant suggestions and lots of brochures of things to do in the area, which we took advantage of. Steps from Willard Beach and special places to wander. Loved the quiet area. Would highly recommend it.
Thank you Cyndi! I'm only sorry you and Norm didn't get better weather. Come again!
Great Getaway Apartment
This studio apartment worked out great for my wife and I and our dog! It has everything needed, is beautifully decorated and very well maintained, and the location couldn't be better for the beach and as a base to explore the Portland and Maine southern coastal areas. Brenda, the owner was very welcoming and helpful! Highly recommended!
