About Barbara Vinal
Hello and welcome to Marion's Gray Gull. My parents, Marion and Dana built this house in 1963. Nearly all of the maintenance on the property is done by my father and myself. We moved to NC 8 years ago and now only spend two weeks a year here.
Barbara Vinal purchased this House in 1963
Why Barbara Vinal chose Biddeford Pool
My mother grew up spending her summers at Biddeford Pool and her parents retired there. It only made sense to build a larger house closer to the beach.
What makes this House unique
The unique place that is Biddeford Pool, the beach and the amazing place that is Maine!

Stunning view, right on the beach!
The home was clean, the layout is open and it’s right on the beach! The back porch is by far the best feature with a private backyard for grilling and yard games. Can’t wait to come back next summer!
Thank you for staying at Marion's Gray Gull! You were wonderful tenants! We so enjoyed meeting you. We are so glad you love our home!
There are no words to describe staying at the cottage. My Husband and I definitely want to go back :-)
Thank you for your kind words. I'm so glad that we could accommodate you and your husband. I know it meant a lot to you to get a chance to be at our home again after all of these years!
Great exterior location, interior had mildew issues
Location of the property was excellent. The beach proximity was wonderful. Rental was easily completed with a local rental agency. Owner accommodated a last minute rental.
Interior of the beach house was quaint in decor, but carpeting was very dated. The lower level was a partial walkout basement. The lower level had a strong mildew smell. I found a dehumidifier in the lower level living area. The carpet on the twin bedroom was very damp. After two night stay and use of downstairs bath/ shower it was evident a slow leak was between the common wall of the bedroom and shower wall. I texted the owner directly as we had to depart before the rental company was open to notify of this concern. I have not received any text from the owner as I felt she should be aware of this and have it investigated for future guests.
I am so sorry that the downstairs seemed uncomfortable for you. I had the rental agent check the bedroom you mentioned and they did not feel any dampness. I'm not sure why it would have felt so damp, but subsequent tenants did not report a problem. Thank you for staying at our home and we will look at making some updates this coming year.
