About Jill Maier

My name is Jill, I live in CT where I manage a dental office. I have two children, a boy and girl who keep me very busy. I have family in ME and we visit several times a year.

Jill Maier purchased this house in 2006

Why Jill Maier chose Cape Elizabeth

Originally owned by my grandmother, I acquired this property in 2006. There are so many special family memories here. It is such a wonderful area, very tranquil, I am truly at peace here. It is hard to explain to someone how beautiful the Maine coast is who has never experienced it for themselves, for those who have, I need say no more! I have been blessed to have spent so many summer weeks in Maine. My hope is that everyone who stays at this unique beach house will go home feeling like they cannot wait to come back! That is how I always feel.

What makes this house unique

This is the perfect spot for relaxing. You can hear and see the ocean from the house and just have to walk to the end of the road to stick your feet in the sand. Because the house is located on a private road, there is no traffic noise and it is very safe for kids to ride bikes or walk to the beach themselves, that is one thing my kids absolutely love!! The neighbors are very friendly and everyone respects each others privacy. You can walk or bike to Kettle Cove and Two Lights State Park. Because Portland is only a 15 min drive away you really get the best of both worlds between relaxing at the beach and going into the city for shopping, dining and entertainment, not to mention a Sea Dogs game, great old New England stadium! We go to at least one or two games a year.

We all wish we were still there!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a small family reunion, of sorts, with 3 families coming from all different parts of the U.S. What a wonderful surprise, when we pulled up to the house. It’s just as beautiful as the pictures. And they have done sooo many updates, to make the home clean, cozy and bright inside. This truly is a beautiful 2-story.

The home is immaculate. The beds and bedding are so comfortable. The kitchen is well appointed so that you don’t need to bring anything but food. I actually brought wine glasses, just in case, there were none. Oh, I promise you, anything and everything you’d ever want to prepare a meal, and set up a table is there for your use. So appreciated that.

And you can see the ocean from the dining table, the couch and the windows upstairs. Wish I could post pictures. It’s truly heaven.

Crescent Beach is just a short walk down the street, and what a wonderful beach it is. You will find people walking and jogging every day.

The Good Table Restaurant, just down the main street, was delish. A must do!

We want to buy the house…..that’s how much we loved it. I think that pretty much sums it up. You won’t be disappointed. Much thanks to the Doucette’s for making this a worry free trip. They are wonderful!

Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5
We spent one week here with two young children and it was fantastic. The beach is a quick 5 minute walk, and once there you basically have it to yourself. You can actually hear the waves from the deck at the house. The house was also great, and Jill (owner) was very pleasant and easy to work with. Portland is 7 miles away and has many great restaurants and things to do as well.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 and two dogs absolutely loved staying in Jill's home. It is so close to the beach, a 2 minute walk at most. We walked on the sand every morning and evening, and you can hear the waves from the back deck. Jill's home was walking distance to Kettle Cove coffee and ice cream and we walked to Good Table twice for breakfast. Portland, lighthouses, and Two Lights Park are a short drive. Very convenient and beautiful location!

Jill was incredibly helpful with any of our last minute questions. It really was a wonderful stay and we will definitely return next time we're in Cape Elizabeth!

Great Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We are local people who wanted a family getaway close to home so some of us could easily go back and forth to work and/or take care of our gardens and pets. Crescent Beach and Kettle Cove are wonderful and the cottage was a perfect location for everyone. An easy walk to the shore for my 5 year old and 18 month old grandsons.
The cottage was spotless and required no effort to just move right in. The space was very adaptable for all our needs as well as easy parking for people coming and going. I would highly recommend this property.

Failed to live up to potential

  • 2 of 5
Entire House was FILTHY! Terrible smell in kitchen owners only response was to try draino, did not help !!! Narrow steep stairs without continuous railing to basement made it too dangerous for smaller children and only one finished room without the rest walled off made it creepy ! Be warned , the "Cable tv" is your 4 basic network channels via a cable .... The location was great but has little else to recommend it sadly.

Sweet Sea Breezes!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at Jill's lovely home in Cape Elizabeth. The house is clean, comfortable and made for a relaxing stay. There are great trails nearby as well as those in South Portland and Portland. For those who love lobster the Lobster Shack is about 2 miles away and has the best lobster ever! Not to mention an outstanding view! Good Table is also close and has excellent food at a reasonable pice. Nonesuch Books, in South Portland is the best bookstore ever! We loved Kettle Cove Ice Cream. I highly recommend all flavors! Crescent Beach is gorgeous and a stone's throw from the house.
Jill is an accommodating person and made the whole stay so pleasant.
