House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 9 Sleeps
This authentic Maine cottage has created wonderful beach memories
for several generations. Ideally located on a small spit of coast
that locals call "South Point," the house is on the edge of a
picture postcard sandy beach that stretches for 3 miles. It is also
a 5 minute walk from a rocky section of coast ideal for exploring
tidal pools or watching birds.

Not as advertised
We have rented in BP for 10 years and have never paid so much for so little. The house was as advertised from a space perspective, but in our opinion, the condition was not as expected. The house was not clean, and was in disrepair, according to our standards.
As always we had a wonderful time in BP, thank goodness, the weather was impeccable, so that we could be outdoors all the time.
We did contact the owner with our complaints, who said our opinion was subjective and promised a refund of some sort, which we never received. They say that they had surveyed the other summers' tenants who had great things to say about the property. Perhaps they didn't survey the person above.

Lovely and very comfortable house
Great location - loved Biddeford Pool
We have years of rental history with happy renters returning year after year and writing wonderful comments to us. We have never solicited online reviews and thus the contented and positive comments sent directly to us are not reflected here to balance this one.
Activity and Interests
Because of its proximity to the beach, the house is ideal for all
manner of beach activities, including sunbathing, swimming,
surfing,snorkeling, kite-flying etc. Since the house is also only a
5 minute walk from a rocky stretch of coastline, fishing, kayaking,
birdwatching, daydreaming or dogwalking are all easily arranged.
The South Point neighborhood of Biddeford Pool is a small family-
oriented, enclave-within-an-enclave. An ice cream truck wanders
lazily through the streets each afternoon, its music summoning
children from surrounding cottages. The entrance to a scenic
Audubon nature preserve is a short stroll from the cottage. The
walking trail in the preserve features classic Maine scenery--bold
rocks, graceful pines, and a dramatic view of the nearby Wood Island
A 15 minute walk takes you into the picturesque village of Biddeford
Pool, complete with general store, lobster pound and post office.
The small harbour (the "Pool") is ideal for kayaking, sailing or
