  • 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..."

  • Memorable Experience

    "We had an amazing time staying at this wonderful home! The indoor space was great along with the outdoor area. The kids enjoyed playing down by the water and running around in the yard. The home was spacious and perfect for a large family with a mix of children of all ages and adults. With beautiful weather and a fabulous landscape right outside the door, we could not have asked for anything more. The owner Frank was fabulous to work with and was always helpful. Our experience there was unforgettable!"

  • Beautiful sunsets and views across the Kennebec.

    "Very well maintained and clean cottage. The second floor porch is the perfect spot for morning coffee, to enjoy a good book or take a nap. The breeze off the water was refreshing with all of the heat this week. Close to all our favorite spots: Popham beach, Anna's Waterfront Restaurant, Bath Sweet Shoppe and the Mustard Seed Bookstore."
