About Mary Ann Passalaqua

We ourselves spend our Summer's at Higginsbeach. We came here over 28 years ago and fell in love with Higginsbeach.

We hope you will come and enjoy the beauty of the beach and Rachel Carson preserve.

Mary Ann Passalaqua purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Mary Ann Passalaqua chose Scarborough

We chose this property or rather it chose us. One year before the property came on the market,my husband and I drove by the cottage and I remarked to him how cute it was and we would own it someday. We both laughed . A year later who knew it would become ours.

What makes this cottage unique

Single floor living. New floors installed. Cozy cottage. Has an enclosed porch for eating , sitting outside in evening without the bugs. Also small open porch in front. Short walk to beach,and cottage backyard is Rachel marsh preserve.

Owner's Response: This person was first renter of season. 3 weeks before their arrival we spent 450.00 having it cleaned. I received a call telling me the draws in kitchen weren't organized. I had to go by wine glasses and a bunch of other things to make them happy. I guess you can't make everyone happy. Some people just have to complain. All other guest of the summer have had no complaints at all. You rented a summer cottage .

I loved the place, Higgins beach is marvellous

  • 2 of 5

Unfortunately, I had to clean the kitchen, every drawers had mice’s excrements in, and there’s was full of unnesssrary things in the kitchen, but no place to put our groceries. I cleaned also the littles carpets in the kitchen and in the bathroom, they were dark and with hairs on them. There was full of dust on the refrigerator and on the drier for clothes. I had to wash every items that was dusty and who didn’ t serve since a lot of time. There was only one glass for the wine and only two spoons for the soup, no soup bols, nor dessert plates, only bigs plates.

We received those items but only after having lodging a demand at HomeAway. I let before message to the owner’ phone or message box but no answers. It was my first experience with HomeAway and I was deceived because I thought that there was supposed to have a better quality or supervision concerning the state of the cottage at our arrival. I am not a complainant person. I let the cottage more clean that it was when I arrived. Sorr for my English, I am à French speaking person.
