We traveled back to my home state of Maine to visit family in Scarborough. We felt so fortunate to find this wonderful and private location so close to the beach.
The interior of the home is comfortable and surprisingly large and spacious. The kitchen was well-stocked and there were more than enough pots, pans, dishes, utensils, and linens. The beds were comfortable and there were numerous fans throughout the home to keep air circulating and the temperature comfortable. The home is close to the beach so there is often a refreshing ocean breeze.
The beach is a very quick and easy walk away. This is a more upscale and private area..there were some days we had a large portion of the beach to ourselves. Our children enjoyed looking at the abundant crabs, shells, and other sea life. The beach is sandy and great for kids to play. There were beach toys and boogie boards at the home for our use. Area homeowners were kind and helpful. At night we could hear the sound of the ocean waves..it was very peaceful. Most other homeowners appeared to be professionals and retired people..thus it was quiet and conducive to rest and relaxation. The road is private so there are few cars passing through.
We were not far from area attractions..it's a short ride to Portland and the Old Port. There are numerous seafood and lobster restaurants nearby including a lobster place just down the road offering freshly steamed lobsters for pick up.
The cleaning woman was wonderful as was the handyman. Both were kind and helpful. The owner was a pleasure to work with. We would definitely return!
