Love Saco - August 2008

  • 5 of 5

We loved, loved, loved your cottage! The description and pictures were perfect. Our weather could have been a little better (one day it was 63 degrees....in August) but we still had a great time despite Mother Nature bringing more clouds than we prefer. The local restaurants are great (especially Huot's - although it gets very, very busy so don't go too hungry because chances are you will have to wait for a table. An alternative (something we did twice) is ordering take-out and sitting on the beach - ahhhhh - a perfect evening. We brought our 2 dogs who absolutely loved the long walks on the beach too. We also went to Funtown/Splashtown which is a great amusement park. We will definitely go again and we've already recommended it to friends and family.

70th Birthday vacation

  • 5 of 5

A marvelous ocean view from the front windows of this charming cottage was the perfect way to celebrate my mom's 70th birthday. The cottage was well maintained, clean, comfortable, cozy and located a stones throw from the beach. Sharon was wonderful to provide us with answers to many questions about local sites and happenings as it had been 28 years since our last vacation in Camp Ellis. The sunrises were breathtaking and low tide provided many treasures to be found and long walks to enjoy. Looking forward to renting again and again in the years to come. Thank you for sharing your home with my family and allowing us to bring many fond memories to life once again.

Better than Great!!

  • 5 of 5

July 21, 2014

Sharon,

It was BETTER than GREAT!!

Thank you so much for letting my family from Oklahoma stay at the cottage this last week! We could not have asked for a better time with my daughter, her husband, and the two young boys.

The cottage was almost equal distance from both sets of in laws which made it very easy to see them and leave them during the day. We went whale watching, went to Palace Play Land, and into Portland a could of times but most of the time we spent playing on the beach... something very different than the flatlands of OK.

The cottage was much more than described and included everything that was needed. The washer and dryer was very much appreciated as the kids could keep their clothes clean after playing in the sand or getting their ice cream from the general store each day before breakfast.

I hope that your housekeeper reported we left the cottage as we found it. We tried very hard to treat everything as if it was our own with the hopes that the next family renting it would also appreciate their stay.

Hope that rest of the summer stays sunny and warm for you and your renters just like the days we experienced.

Blue Pearl Cottage

  • 3 of 5

The cottage is a small, modest accommodation close to the beach with a view. Although it says it will sleep 7, we three adults felt at capacity. The main bed was comfortable for two, but sleeping on the full size (lower) bunk mattress was intolerable; I had to move out to the living area and use the futon - which is not a bed noted for great comfort. The bunk mattress is thin, no box spring or topper and I could feel each metal slat of the bunk frame. Kids might not mind this, but it is not for an adult. The kitchen had all the small appliances we needed.

This is the first beach cottage I have rented that charged for providing linens and paper products. We brought our own, but that was a hassle and the weekly rental fee was high enough, plus a cleaning fee, to have covered those amenities.

The local restaurants (walking distance) were fair at best and the small general store was no better. Be sure to bring what you need or plan to go to the large store on the main highway into town. We drove to several of the Audubon wildlife areas for interesting walks after local beach strolls. Old Orchard Beach amusement park is for folks who can tolerate tacky.

Lastly, you will note that in the property photos on the web site there are none of the building exterior. We missed having a comfortable porch to sit outside and eat, read, talk, play, etc. The entry 'porch' of the cottage is not set up for much use - it's more of a place to take off sandy shoes.

Owner's Response: I wish you told me this when i met you and your guests at the end of your stay you told us the cottage was very nice and you had a great time ?? We do appreciate guest comments and try our best to do up grades every year , We are planning on up grading the full mattress to a memory foam and that should solve any issues with comfort As for Linens rentals and cleaning fees , we try very hard to keep up with local rental policies of other renters in our area , our rates are in line with other similar homes in the area .. The description is very accurate we posted the cottage size we have posted a floor plan photo and we have up dated photos of the cottage in its present state Sorry the Saco area was not your type of location VRBO does a great job describing the local area to help renters pick a perfect place for their life style Thank you for you input and feed back it is helpful for future up grade plans

The best bang for your buck. Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed our STAYS at both the Blue Pearl and ClamShell numerous times. After many searches and other stays in this area, this home away from home hits the mark. Spectacullar view of the ocean just a few feet away condones a great read on the window bench. Great ammennties too. We have stayed at the Pearl during spring, fall, and winter. Peace and solitude for walks,relaxarion, and to destress. We are happy reapeat renters for about 6 years. You may inquire as to why a belated review . . . .we guess we wanted to keep this oyster to ourselves.

The only flaw is the raised master bed resulting in difficulty getting in/out
