  • First time in Maine- Did not want to leave!

    "The Gills could not be anymore charming and comfortable, and the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing week with family & friends. The attention to detail was amazing and found myself roaming the house just looking at everything which really pulled in the essence of Maine and Bailey's Island. The ocean views are spectacular and were especially enjoyed from the large deck around the house, with swinging chair. Their is a secret swimming hole right out front of the house where we spent our afternoons jumping from rocks. The house was very clean, the beds super comfortable and I think the upstairs shower is now one of my favorites ever. Staying at the Gills really made our vacation one of the best ever and can not wait to comeback!"

  • beautiful and relaxing

    "We have stayed here a number of times over the past 15 years during all seasons. The house is beautifully situated at the end of the peninsula. It has everything you need for a getaway vacation. close enough to town but far enough away, caring and next door owners. Our only challenge was no dishwasher, but now we are prepared for that!"

  • Great Southern Maine Vacation!

    "Our family has vacationed in Maine for several years, in the Scarborough area. For summer 2016, we decided to look for a house, since we were inviting more family members. This house seemed ideal for our plans, and very conveniently located, so we inquired about it. The owner was very responsive, and fortunately our desired dates were available! We moved forward with planning, and were soon booked. Honestly, the contract adherence fee seemed a bit steep at first, but I do understand the need for the owner to protect the integrity of his guest schedule, and language was clear about the conditions to be met for it to be fully refunded. Through the entire process, the owner communicated consistently with us, and quickly replied to any questions. Also, he and I were able to become more "acquainted" through our email exchanges. Since I had initially been impressed with the positive reviews for this property and the owner, I felt even more comfortable with our vacation plans as we "got to know each other" while working out details. He even sent a reminder about full payment being due one month prior to our stay date - I appreciated this tremendously, since I had not put a note on my calendar! Shortly before our departure date, I received final home entry instructions via text, as previously promised. Unfortunately, other family members who had planned to join us for vacation were unable to do so in the last two weeks prior to departure, due to accidental injuries. When this occurred, I longed for the flexibility of a hotel reservation, since I could have canceled it without penalty had we wanted to. However, we still proceeded with our trip, just with 3 people instead of 7! When we arrived, it was evening; the location was easy for Google Maps to find. It was much more private and secluded than I had expected, which was great! The week went by tremendously fast, as all vacations do. My brother and his wife were able to join us for a few days, so we got to half capacity of the house for part of the time! The beach is SO convenient, and easily accessible through a neighbor's driveway - we spent two full days there. Though clean, the house didn't feel completely "fresh" on arrival, like we would expect in a motel - that was a bit disappointing. But, it was still a great place to stay for the week, and being able to do laundry made arriving home much less stressed! If the home is available again in the future, we'll likely return..."
