Private, Two Story Townhouse, Close To Beach, Bakeries, Ice Cream & Restaurants

Our adorable rental is fully booked for the summer, but don't despair! We have another option right near the beach around the corner from this house for you that has availability this summer! A friend is heading to Europe for three months, last minute and asked us to book up her house right near the beach. Please contact me directly for photos and availability. Weekly rate is $1500, with a one week minimum and rentals run Saturday to Saturday! It's listing #p3804614.

For other dates, here is a description of our beautilful rental! This town-home is incredibly private (we own and rent out both sides) and very pet-friendly! Units are impeccable. Pets are very welcome and we are obsessive about cleaning and maintaining our home! We are also able to fully set the house up for your baby. We've traveled with them ourselves and know how much easier is when you don't need to bring a long a pack and play, high chair, toys, etc. These items are neatly packed away out of sight for those without children.

The home is bright, airy and within a couple of short blocks to the beach. Each side has a private, fenced in backyard and a separate, private driveway. The kitchen is open and renovated with exposed beams and hardwood floors throughout both stories. Upstairs are two bedrooms, both with new queen beds and a full bathroom with a tub/ shower. Downstairs is completely open with a family room and dining area in the front and kitchen in the back. The unit gets great light throughout. There is also a half-bath on the first floor with a washer/ dryer dedicated to the unit.

The backyard is large and private, with plenty of room for your kids to play and BBQ s to be had. The landscaping is professionally maintained and is gorgeous. You're welcome to bring your kayaks, paddle boards, surf boards and any other summer toys! There's plenty of room to stash them.

The house is within walking distance of all of the local restaurants, including Scratch Bakery (just ten buildings up the road) as well as the amazing locally made, Willard Scoops ice cream!

About the Owner

Hi! My name is Maggie and welcome to our perfect vacation spot! I'm in my late 30s and my family comes many, many generations from Maine on both sides - my mom from a long line of dairy farmers and my father from generations of sea captains and fishermen. He was the first generation NOT born on Cranberry Island. Instead, he was born in the bustling village of Southwest Harbor on Mount Desert Island. I myself am a builder and designer and take a lot of pride in providing all of our guests with the kinds of places that we'd like to stay in ourselves. Our standards for design, decoration and amenities are incredibly high and we want you to reap the benefits of this!

Charming home, Charming area

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a week here with our 20-month-old daughter. The place is so charming and looks just like the photos. We lived in Portland before but didn't know the Willard Beach area of South Portland; we are now in love with it. Scratch bakery is fantastic (great morning bagels, pastries and also high quality basics like milk, eggs and cheese); Terra Cotta Pasta Co. is wonderful for meals at home without having to make them from scratch. These are both within walking distance as are several other restaurants.

Maggie was really wonderful and had a pack-n-play, high chair and baby gates for us and even lent us some of her child's toys.

This is perfect for a family getaway. We would definitely go back.

THIS PLACE CAN'T BE BEAT!

THIS PLACE CAN'T BE BEAT!
  • 5 of 5
I feel we really lucked out with this charming property. It's not only creatively decorated throughout but also well-appointed with everything that you'd possibly need, upstairs and down. The kitchen is equipped with modern appliances and new dishes and cookware, and the back yard features a grill, a fire pit and plenty of comfortable seating in a carefully landscaped enclosed area. Not only that, but there's a shed with bicycles, beach chairs and umbrellas! Everything we could want was provided. To add to the ease of our stay, Maggie was quick to respond to questions by phone or text.

Aside from our satisfaction with the property, the location was perfect for us. It's a short walk to the beach with a path that starts at one end and goes around Southern Maine Community College campus. If you're brave, you can also walk out on the rocks to the lighthouse. Portland is just a 10-minute drive with loads to do there and in the surrounding area. Vacation highlights: bagels and coffee at Scratch Bakery; ice cream at Scoops; Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth; the Old Port; Portland Museum of Art; Munjoy Hill along the Eastern Promenade. So much to do though just relaxing on the beach and soaking up the view was fine for us many days. To top it off, our dog had a blast. This is a very dog-friendly town and our Harry took advantage of every meet and greet and romp possible. We liked this spot so much we've already reserved 2 weeks for next September.

Maggie's place is spotless and beautifully decorated - and the location can't be beat! Walk to bakery, restaurants, ice cream, the beach... Amazing spot, beautiful place and terrific owner! Couldn't have asked for anything better. We had a wonderful time and we'll no doubt be back. Thanks for everything, Maggie!

AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5
I don't even know where to begin with this review, I think my title says it all, this place was amazing, everything we were hoping for plus more! My husband and I were looking for the perfect place to spend his 30th Birthday, along with our 4 month old baby and dogs. The place, along with location couldn't have been more ideal. Each morning we would stop by the local bakery and walk to the local beach that was dog friendly in the morning and evening. The house was so welcoming, very easy to make yourself feel right at home, and provided everything you needed if you wanted to make all your meals at home. We also loved making smore's around the fire pit each night. Then on top of all that the owners went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed for the perfect trip, which it was! That will def not be our last stay!

Inviting, Fun, Close To The Beach, Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Each year for our family vacation, we make matching t-shirts (yes, we are THAT family!). Our t-shirts this year read "Have Fun, That's The Maine Thing!" and boy did we have fun. Where do I begin?

We were traveling from Southern NJ with a 19th month old. Maggie was so kind and provided us with a pack n' play, high chair, and stroller so we had extra room in the car to pack necessities. The house is a very quick walk to the beach (on a quiet, safe road for walking). Coming from DE/NJ beaches which can be touristy/crowded, Willard Beach was a breath of fresh air- quiet with friendly folks. There are several playgrounds within walking distance. We also enjoyed Scratch Bakery and Willard Scoops (2 minute walk) almost every day. Maggie's suggestions for places to eat were top notch- David's, Taco Trio, Otto's Pizza (free delivery after a long beach day!), and more. Also, if you have little one's, plan a day to go the Children's Museum- you won't be disappointed. Exploring Old Port was a fun day activity- we had the freshest lobster rolls at DiMillo's and the Portland Lobster Company. Old Port also has great shops- the toy shop was a hit! If you are an animal lover, Portland is very animal friendly, with dog friendly beaches and shops. Our cat decided to sit this vacation out!

As to the house, Maggie thought of everything you may need. The house was clean, bright, and cheery. The kitchen was fully stocked with cleaning supplies, pots/pans, etc etc. You only need to bring your food. The bedrooms were the perfect size for our family and the bathrooms were updated in a modern fashion. All necessities are there, including beach towels. A washer and dryer was very helpful with a little one. There is WiFi, books, games, etc. Maggie even supplies beach chairs and bikes if you need them! There is a fenced in backyard with chairs and a fire pit to enjoy. We didn't have any problems with the house, but I'm sure if we did, Maggie would have been on top of it.

Is there anything we didn't like or would change? We would have stayed longer! And Scratch Bakery should be open 24 hours/day!

Hands down, an awesome vacation! We were so glad Maggie welcomed us into her home. Once we have our schedules for next summer, we will be making travel plans to stay again!

Location

From the Owner

These two town-homes are located in Portland's hippest area, the Willard Beach neighborhood. Both units are fresh, stylish, super comfortable and perfectly appointed for your trip to Maine. The house is located just a quick two minute walk to the beach as well as to all of the local, award winning restaurants, cafes, bakeries and ice cream shops (yes, there THREE within walking distance of the house!). It's incredibly close to downtown Portland while maintains the privacy that you'd want on your vacation. Our pet friendly policy allows you not to stress with your pet on vacation but we also thoroughly clean and maintain the unit for those who have pet allergies or just aren't as appreciative of pets. You'd never even know a pet has stayed there before! We'd love to have you come stay in our affordable and perfect vacation spot!
