Delightful in a private compound at the end of the street. Two bedroom and one bath rancher looking down on secluded Little Beach on Saco Bay. Swim, kayak, paddle board or bring some pails and shovels for the kids to play in the sand. Two and a half mile long ocean beach a four minute walk away. A three minute walk to quaint downtown Biddeford Pool with and old fashioned grocery store, lobster pound, gift shop, and post office. Portland is just 25 minutes, and Kennebunk and Kennebunkport just 15 minutes driving time away.

Could not ask for anything better
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was perfect for our needs and the view is amazing. The private beach was a one minute walk. We want to thank the owners for everything, they were awesome! Kevin and Jan
Amazing time! great beach and host
The house worked out perfectly for us. Not many rentals have king beds which was nice, and you had access to the beach which is also hard to find. Fred was incredibly helpful and friendly whenever we had questions. He even offered to dog sit one day, when we had to leave unexpectedly for the day. We look forward to staying there next year.
Outstanding view, great privacy, responsive owner
Our stay was for 10/11-15/2017. We chose the property for its location (close to relatives we were visiting) and reasonable price. The cottage is very rustic, with no furnace, a very small shower, and dated electrical service with fuses and lots of extension cords. Being mid-October, the nights were cool, but the portable heaters provided kept us warm. Unfortunately, the electrical system could only handle one heater at a time. A blown fuse was promptly replaced, and the owner provided extra blankets on his own initiative. We also had some furry visitors. The owner offered to provide traps, but, not wanting to deal with them, we declined. The location is spectacular. Outstanding view, lots of areas to walk/hike, close to Biddeford and Saco. The owner, who lives on-site, was also very good, affording us plenty of privacy and being responsive to our requests. Now that we know more of the amenities, we would probably stay again, but would have packed a little differently (warmer clothes, fewer electronic gadgets).
In need of update
Other than the view, nothing to like
The view is Maine perfection!
We LOVED LOVED LOVED our stay here in Biddeford Pool Maine at Harborside Estates. The owner, Fred, was super-responsive to any questions we had and demonstrated the utmost hospitality. There were fresh flowers in a vase when we arrived and the property was spotless!!
The property was so private, peaceful and quiet both during the day and the evening, with a quick walk to a private beach and a five minute walk to the adorable General Store Golthwaite's, which also includes a restaurant with outdoor seating and an amazing view. Our stay included 2 dogs who were welcomed enthusiastically, and we definitely plan to return next summer!! The whole neighborhood is incredibly dog-friendly and we saw people with dogs everywhere!
This property was well equipped with all kitchen glassware and utilities that one could need. There were plenty of pots and pans, lobster crackers (a MUST for anyone renting in Maine), plates, bowls, coffee cups, glasses, blender, coffeemaker, microwave, etc. There were cleaning supplies, soap/shampoo, and paper products available on our arrival as well in addition to the linens.
A few things to know-1) The washer and dryer are a shared amenity with the cottage next door and are not located in the actual home, but in a shed attatched to the rental property next door. We didn't end up using them, but it is something that is good to know. 2) This is an older property that has been updated, but still needs some updates such as bedroom windows, which were difficult to open/close at times, and the toilet would run periodially.
But the VIEW. The view made up for any minor drawbacks. You can sit in the livingroom or in the front yard, and just drink in the view of the gorgeous Maine coastline, and smell the fresh sea air.
I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for peace, quiet, relaxation, and a laid-back, oceanfront location to escape the stress of everyday life.
The location was beautiful and it was the perfect antidote to the stress of the city. Loved the view, the proximity to two beaches, the birds, and the amenities of the village. The cottage had everything we needed.
