“Wonderful view”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2017

The Pearl The Blue Pearl Cottage was perfect for us. The view was spectacular, it was very clean and charming. We had a good time at this place got it was a dream come true to see the ocean at this time of the year .

Reviewed 24 Oct 2016

When we arrived at the Blue Pearl, it was getting dark so we didn't get a really good look at the outside. However, the inside was a big surprise. A lot of the places we had looked at online just weren't inviting, often worn and had the look of being thrown together. I wanted something that would be different, but still make for a rememberable trip. We found it! The Blue Pearl was fabulous, it was old and rustic, but clean and with plenty of charm. We could tell great efforts were put into giving us all the necessities; it was just perfect. It sat right by the ocean and gave us a beautiful sunrise and sunset. The town of Saco was quaint and had that New England feel, which we definitely don't have in Alabama. We had not planned to make this trip again, since it takes 2-3 days to get there, but it was so worth it and we plan to return next year. Sharon, whom we spoke with to set up the reservations was helpful and friendly. Would like to have actually met her in person. One can't go wrong renting the Blue Pearl.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We do try to make our renters feel at home in their home away from home I wish we could have met you too. When you are ready to book we will be happy to have you back Thank you Sharon and Frank Vivolo

“great place!”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2016

Our family had such a great time here! The little beach area out front is nice and private. Beautiful water and sand. Nice areas to park. The view is amazing! There are really yummy restaurants just a tiny walk away! Beautiful place for bike riding and running! House is cute and comfortable! We fit well with all of us! There are so many fun places close by like old orchard beach, kennebunkport, portland maine. Dimillos was our favorite restaurant. Overall, it was a great vacation!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for the Wonderful review we try very hard to make sure everyone enjoys the cottage and has a lovely Relaxing Vacation We welcome you and your family back any time Thank you Sharon and Frank Vivolo

“Saco vacation”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2016

We loved staying at the Blue Pearl in Saco, Maine. We got fresh lobster across the street, lobster rolls just down the street and there was a store around the corner. My son kayaked, I sun bathed and my dogs ran on the beach. The Blue Pearl was well equipped with a washer & dryer, a keurig, and a lobster pot. We brought our own fans and ac unit which were needed during the heat wave. The best part was the location, we were steps away from the beach.

Owner's reply: Thank You very much for the wonderful review... I am glad you enjoyed all the amenities we have supplied , We will review possibly installing an AC unit in the future , since the summers do seem to be a lot hotter then they have been ... Again Thank you , You are welcome back anytime Sharon and Frank Vivolo

“Wonderful stay”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2016

Cute cottage with all the amenities. Absolutely amazing views. My favorite spot was the window seat. It was clean and comfortable. By-the-seaside home away from home. Sharon was wonderful and accommodating. We hope to return!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for the amazing review. We would love to have you back again soon Sharon And Frank Vivolo

“Great Pet Vacation”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2015

We stayed at Blue Pearl in the offseason, early May 2015, with our 2 Great Pyrenees pups (8 months old). We all loved our stay. A # of walks during the day. They loved watching the ocean and people and dogs walking by during the day. A stone's throw to a great restaurant w/take-out (necessary if you have pets). Very enjoyable and looking forward to doing it again.

“Wonderful Ocean Memories”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2013

My mother, two sisters, and I have loved coming to the Blue Pearl in March for several years now. It is full of charm and so comfortable. It has everything you need to relax and reconnect with the joys of life. Every time we arrive it feels like coming home. We bring our little dogs and settle into this Ocean Retreat. Our favorite spot when we aren't at the beach right outside our door is the window seat that overlooks the beach. Our dogs love that spot as well. Sadly what was 4 women by the sea has now become three. This year this charming cottage meant even more to us. Again it was like a bitter sweet coming home and here we continued to heal as we revisited the wonderful memories or our mother and this magical place. We can never thank Sharon enough for opening her Cottage to those of us that seek that special place by the Sea. It will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Owner's reply: Thank you So much for the wonderful review , Its our pleasure to have you and your family stay at the Blue Pearl Sorry for the loss of your mom but i am sure she is there with you at the cottage enjoying the Ocean Breeze with all of you Sharon and Frank

“Great getaway!”

Reviewed 8 Jan 2012

We had a lovely time at the Blue Pearl. The ocean is right there in front of you; the sunrises were just beautiful. The cottage itself is very clean and comfortable, and there is a ton of information and maps on local sites and attractions. Sharon, the owner, was great to work with. And, of course, at this time of year, we almost had the beach to ourselves. It was a wonderful way to start off a new year! Can't wait to go back!

“Relax by the Sea”

Reviewed 15 Sep 2008

We just completed a week at the Blue Pearl. It was a wonderful relaxing vacation. The view from the master bedroom bed was awesome. I watched the sun rise every morning ... almost unheard of when on vacation. The cottage has everything that you need to be comfortable and the weather cooperated too - not always the case this year! We took our 2 shih tzu's and they had a great time too. All in all a great vacation.

Thank You Sharon and Frank for sharing this amazing and comfortable place.  Althought the weather was gray and sometimes rainy, we enjoyed spending time here in your wonderful home.  The beach here is perfect for collecting treasures- we spent lot of time combing the beach at low tide.  Having the window seat is especially wonderful.  Mom and I spent hours sitting there   drinking coffee and watching it rain.  We loved watching the rise and fall of the ocean, having the waves crash against the rocks while being toasty warm inside!!  WE cant wait to come back!  Thank you for helping make this vacation a great one.  Tracy and Family
