Eclectic Charm Just Steps From Beautiful (Dog Friendly) Casco Bay

  • 5 of 5
If you rent this house come with a sense of mirth. The upstairs is whimsically decorated with fun violin-shaped throw pillows, antique stoves, children's pedal cars, and yes that soft leather bench car seat, which is quirky and most comfortable. A beautiful view awaits at Willard Beach on Simonton Cove, Casco Bay... just steps away. Sunrise and sunsets were memorable. If you wake up at dawn you might find a clam or snails on the beach and will see the lobstermen going out for the day's catch. The beach permits dogs off leash before 9AM and after 6PM. You are provided a table and chairs in the beautiful, meticulously maintained backyard garden. The owners provided us with a helpful self-penned "Inside Tips Guide" to the Portland area which did not disappoint. And most specially...free passes to the Portland Museum of Art. Darryl and Judy were hospitable and helpful even promptly mailing back a charger we left behind. The accommodation was clean and well appointed. If you like renting a generic, monotone, beige-boring hotel room, this carriage house is not for you. But if your vacation is an adventure and interesting spaces add to your experience, you will not be disappointed.

Rustic and light and airy

I would like to respond to the review of 7/19/10.
My husband and I are from Florida and we have been renting the Carriage House for a month each year for five years now.
Please don't let that review stop you from renting this cute place.We just love it there. The place is perfect for a couple. We saw it on the internet and hoped it would look like the pictures, it was that and
even more.
It does have a garage door that goes up and has a screen.It makes the room nice and light. There are french doors over looking a sun-dappled backyard with beautiful flowers all around. It's so peaceful sitting out there.
The upstairs has a king bed and living area. It has 18 windows all around that room. It's so bright and cheerful. It also has air conditioning up stairs.
The owners are Judy and Darrell. They are wonderful people who go out of their way to make our visit so enjoyable.
They keep asking us if we need anything, and if we do, it will be there for us.
They have been great friends and feel like family to us now.
It's about 25 steps to the beach. What a view! A great location.

Loved Willard Beach

  • 4 of 5
We found staying at the Carriage House a rewarding experience - a jump over to Portland in the midst of the seaside community of South Portland. Willard Beach is fun for swimming, walking, viewing boats and birds. The Carriage House is rustic and full of Maine kitsch. There’s a lot of space. The upstairs room cooled off, even on the hottest day of the year, and the king-size bed is excellent. The bathroom and kitchen facilities are adequate. The living area is sparse, but it opens onto a beautiful private garden with lots of flowers and plenty of shade. The neighborhood is quiet, and our hosts were friendly and hospitable. If you’re looking for a place that takes dogs, this is THE place, and Willard Beach is one of the few beaches that allow dogs.

If you are a Car, then this is perfect

  • 1 of 5
This is not a house, nor a condo for that matter. It is actually a two-door garage with a second floor added. The garage doors make up one wall of the "house." Of course this is conveinetly left out of any pictures. There are bugs/insects everywhere and I mean everywhere. The walls and floors are unfinished. The couch is actually the backseat of an old car. There are not two bedrooms as advertised. There is one large room with a bed in it. There are not 1.5 bathrooms. There is only one bathroom, with unfinished walls, which only has a shower (no bath) . You can't see the water from the porch. The water is not in view of the house (woops, I mean garage) and there is no porch for that matter. Bottom line. If you want to spend your hard earned money to stay in a garage, more power to you.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry for the misunderstanding. We did not misrpresent. Our description said one bedroom We want everyone to be satisfied and at the moment we are trying to work out a reasonable compromise on returning a part of the deposit to these guests.
