Recent South Portland reviews

  • Exactly what we hoped for!

    "Lee's house is fantastic! The bright colors, wonderful artwork and great backyard are perfect for people who want a restorative and stunning place to retreat every evening after a day at the beach or a day enjoying all that Portland has to offer. If you enjoy cooking, Lee's gas stove and kitchen layout will make you happy, although you may want to bring your favorite pan or stock pot! And Lee truly cares about the comfort of his guests. Case in point: when he learned that we were having a family reunion, he brought us over more chairs for the event. He is a considerate and upbeat host. I would definitely recommend this vacation home!"

  • 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..."

  • Beautifully kept property

    "I had the most wonderful week at this little cottage. The wished I could have stayed longer. The view from the porch is 100 times better than the picture indicates. The beach is closer than it appears in the photo and so charming. Every night I walked the beach at sunset and the sunsets were gorgeous. The bed and sheets were comfy and soft, big fluffy white towels were luxurious. Jennifer, the land lady was lovely, accessible, discreet and a pleasure to meet. Do not miss her icecream at Willard scoops. The cottage is convenient to Portland where I was working. The neighborhood was quiet with very nice neighbors. Parking was right next to the cottage, the kitchen had every amenity needed for simple cooking. I just loved it so much. It exceeded my expectations."
