Great Graduation Weekend

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 28, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
I rented this property for my graduation from medical school. My family and guests loved the house and found it to be comfortable, clean, well-stocked, and spacious. We loved the closed in porch since we visited in mid-May and it was still chilly in Maine! The short walk to the water revealed a very quiet and lovely beach which was great! The bedrooms were rather small, but we were able to sleep 10 adults comfortably. During our short stay we had a cookout using the gas grill. We found everything that we could ever need in terms of utensils, dishes, glasses, appliances, pots/pans, etc for the weekend. The house was also stocked with all of the other essentials that you never think of when going away including: garbage bags, paper towels, dishwasher detergent, dish soap and sponges, toilet paper, laundry detergent, iron/ironing board, hand soap in the bathrooms, etc. They thought of all of those little things and it really made a big difference in our comfort. There were board games, a collection of movies, and free secure wifi available, but we spent most of our time (when not at graduation related events) outdoors at the beach or on the lawn. Also, having 3 bathrooms with showers was great!!!

We enjoyed staying in this house and found it to be a great graduation weekend get away!!!

Wonderful Fall Weekend in Maine

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 12, 2012

We had a wonderful time at the Sea Bird cottage in Maine. The house is lovely and the property, with the tranquil walk down to the beach was just incredible. Each room was very tastefully appointed and did not feel like a rental home at all. The beautiful home accommodated us as a group of seven adults and two children very nicely and overall everyone had a fantastic time. It was a very clean and pretty beachfront property. Unfortunately for us, it rained most of the weekend we were there but because of the very nice and central location of the Sea Bird cottage, we were able to explore the surrounding areas and enjoy so much that Maine has to offer. We've stayed at places before where when there is bad weather, you're stuck inside but because of the great location of this house, you can enjoy the home and the property but you can also take some wonderful trips exploring Maine (Kennebunkport, Biddeford Pools, Portland, Freeport, Booth Bay, etc.). A beautiful home that we would recommend to anyone!

Thank you so much for such terrific accommodations. The home is lovely, great views, beach and so much more. We are originally from Maine and this truly is coming home for us. The house is more than well-equipped and very relaxing. It is spacious enough for all of us to hang-out on the sunporch or have some privacy as well. Perfect for family reunion...the group of cousin from 3 countries..loved it. To anyone reading this review, if you want a perfect beach house in Maine, this is it!

Highest possible recommendation

My family and I have stayed at Sea Bird Cottage for a total of 3 weeks over a period of 4 years. I must say this is a favorite place of mine to vacation. I wish that I could stay there every year. The property sits right on the beach with it's own private path (about 25 yards) right out the back yard to the beach. I grew up neighboring Portland and consider the Pine Point & Old Orchard Beaches to be the best of the beaches found in Maine and much nicer than those in neighboring New England areas such as the Cape. The cottage is very close several restaurants which offer a wide variety of cuisine or you may choose to take a short 20 minute drive to Portland if you prefer a wider array of dining and shopping choices. The Old Orchard Beach Amusement Park is just down the street. It's close enough to walk (about 1.5 miles) but far enough away so that your area of the beach remains clear of the crush of the amusement park crowd. The fact that the cottage is in a residential area also impedes a crowd from forming on your end of the beach due to the lack of public parking nearby.

Besides the supreme location of this property, there are several aspects of it that I really enjoyed. I really liked having a spacious mowed lawn in the backyard for my kids to play on when they were not at the beach. This is rare for a property that sits right on the beach. We were able to throw the football, baseball, frisbee and we even flew some kites there. Although the home is dated, I loved the fact that the owners have done an excellent job in updating it by purchasing new appliances, a gas grill and adding WiFi as well as some other subtle touches. Another one of my favorite aspects of Sea Bird is the wrap-around porch. It's goes around 3/4 of the home and is divided into distinct segments. 1/3 of the porch is screened in with a huge picnic table and benches as well as additional seating for lounging. 1/3 is enclosed with windows and sliding glass doors that serves as a large heated space if needed or you could open up any number of windows to let in fresh air. 1/3 is an open porch.
If you spend any time here, you too will come to realize that the owners really care for the property on a personal level that far exceeds it's value to them as strictly an asset. We were extremely comfortable during each of our stays at this wonderful property and I'm happy to offer my highest recommendation to any potential client considering a vacation in southern Maine.

Sea Bird Cottage

Over the last 3 years, Sea Bird Cottage has become an annual meeting place for our family. We look forward to returning next year.
The house is very comfortable and well equipped. If we have a large group for lunch, the screened porch is ideal. Otherwise, you will find us on the sun porch or taking long walks on the beach. It's the ideal place to relax and enjoy the company of our family and friends.
