Motorcycle riding vacation

“ Excellent ”
July 20, 2012
The property is stunning. The views are amazing. The house is a little outdated on the inside. We had some very warm, 90's, days and would have preferred that the air conditioner worked. Two of us have asthma and that posed a problem. I did call the owner who brought us fans but since the heat waves seem to be a trend the air should be fixed. Some extra deck furniture would have been nice. All in all a good vacation. Maine is awesome.

Comfortable & convenient!

“ Excellent ”
September 11, 2013
The location was very convenient. It was easy for everyone to get downtown. The house is roomy-we had 8 adults & no one got in anyone's way. There was enough personal space. The proximity of the beach is great! The information regarding points of interest & restaurants in the area was most helpful. We enjoyed bagels from "scratch" bakery. I would recommend this rental. I wish that the beds would have had top sheets,but the cleanliness was appreciated. The owner was very helpful & answered questions immediately. For instance -we got lost & he stayed with us on the phone until we arrived at the house.

Renters Beware

“ Excellent ”
September 28, 2011
The home and views are incredible. However, the owners shouldn't be renting their property. They are very strict , we arrived during "Irene". The property owner was complaining how the previous occupants were slobs. He spent the beginning of our stay mowing the lawn and running around the property during the storm. We left the home cleaner than we arrived except for 2 red wine spots on the white slip covers on the sofa's and were subject to a replacement fee. When they said we could dispute this and we did, they never responded back and kept $30.00 from a $1500 security deposit. "All in all" we had a wonderful vacation despite the property owners and their frugal hospitality.

Quiet weekend getaway

“ Excellent ”
August 5, 2014
This cabin was perfect for just my husband and I. I brought him here for a last-minute birthday surprise getaway. It was small but just enough for two people. It was a good thing however, that we were rained out because there would not have been enough room to invite a couple close friends or family. You wouldn't know that the owner was there except that you have to share the beach with them. What would've made this property even better would be your own private the beach. Truly though, this spot is perfect for a romantic weekend alone. Such a cute and clean space. Thank you for helpings give my husband a great birthday!

Honeymooners from CT

July 31, 2012
The cottage was cute and comfortable, perfect for 2 people. The bed was great and the living room allowed us to relax with a beautiful view of the ocean. The neighbors were a bit close but we still felt great about the location. Only bad thing was the road work that happened to be going on right behind the house the last few days there, waking us earlier than we would have liked. Other than that the location was great! No need for an air conditioner and the washer and dryer were a great plus! Can't wait to go back for our anniversary!

House was clean and had lots of space. Great location. Rented for a week. Owner was great to work with. Would recommend to others if looking for a nice vacation house. Beach area closer to the house is the one we used. But did go to the state park which was not very far. Kids loved it and had a sandy beach. We all had a fun and we made lots of great memories!!

Portland, Maine, Travel Tips

Charming cobblestone streets, lighthouses, cultural events, and outdoor activities are just a few of the sights families will discover in Maine's largest city: Portland. Situated approximately 100 miles north of Boston, Massachusetts, Portland is on Casco Bay and offers plenty of water-based recreation, majestic seaside landscapes, and some of the best tourist attractions throughout New England. Portland attracts visitors year-round due to mountain skiing in the winter and beach fun in the summer. High season runs from mid-June until October, when many come to revel in the fall foliage. Portland has been home to writer Stephen King, actress Liv Tyler, and poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and visitors are certain to understand why notable people are drawn to the city. With a bustling arts district, beaches, museums, and spectacular, scenic views, Portland, Maine, offers adventure and excitement the entire family will enjoy. Those planning to visit the area with children or other family members should consider staying in by-owner Portland rentals as opposed to hotels, motels, or inns. Portland vacation rentals are a budget-friendly way to ensure you maintain the comforts of home while enjoying your stay in this magnificent city.
Portland, Maine, rentals are available throughout the city and provide traveling families advantages not afforded by motels or hotels. For instance, Portland rentals offer a level of privacy simply unheard of in hotels, motels, or inns. When staying in a house or cottage, you can rest assured that your family is together under one roof. You also won't need to worry about hearing other tourists through thin walls, as your family will have the luxury and convenience of their own living quarters. Those planning extended stays often find that they will save on the cost of lodging with Portland house rentals when compared to the long-term cost of a hotel stay.
There are many comforts available to those who choose to stay in Portland, Maine, rentals that you can't get from other types of lodging. The ability to launder your clothes within the home is priceless, as is having access to full-sized rooms, kitchens, and bathrooms.
