I want to thank you for looking at this rental more closely, and always welcome the chance to help you with your vacation planning. I have been a homewaway member for the past decade and have helped over 100 families in that time.
I originally purchased the Underwood Cottage in 1994, and lived in it for 12 years until our family expanded. We intend to return to this location when the kids have grown up and in the meantime, hope you enjoy it as much as we have over the years.

This property boasts convenience and comfort, especially for those with small kids. The simple cottage decor is inviting but not intimidating, and kids can relax and have fun in the side yard, or head down to the beach for some exploring.
The location is wonderful and the local beach, town landing market and neighborhood are all very friendly and you will feel welcomed as a local.
This property is priced for the average person to afford yet very comfortable. A perfect location, a quaint beach neighborhood setting, ideal for people traveling with dogs, families with young children, or couples looking for a central southern Maine location from which to adventure out. I personally lived in this cottage for 10 years, and have now been renting it for over 8 years. Every year, I make a few upgrades and we do our best to ensure a quality customer experience every time.
Location! Location! Location! Easy to get anywhere and yet so quaint by the seaside. Rt. 88 was great for walking - great friendly neighbors, loved the Village Store. Falmouth has such a good energy too! Really appreciated the tourist info book at the cottage. We had a wonderful Windjammer sail! Ventured to shopping in Freeport, bird watching in Popham Beach State Park, explored Cape Elizabeth's Portland headlight lighthouse and clam shack, and enjoyed fabulous restaurants and seafood in downtown Portland. Thank you Alexa for being so helpful and easy to work with during the booking process. We'll be back! -Jane & Bill
We had a great stay at this adorable cottage, it was everything we hoped for, Maine is delightful with warm temps and lovely cooling seabreezes. The cottage has an open layout, which was ideal for our family with kids. Bedrooms were quiet and comfortable., and we spent a lot of time relaxing in the side yard and cooking out in the back deck area. Owner provided lots of extras like beach chairs, cooler and kids toys, which was a huge bonus.
The beach is beautiful and we enjoyed swimming, even though the water was chilly! The neighbors and owners of the Village store up the road are quite friendly, and we loved walking there and getting live lobster, and picnic sandwiches.. The kids really enjoyed fishing off town landing docks in the afternoon and we also loved seeing the City of Portland, which is just so easy to get to from the cottage.
Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves & fell in love with the area. My brother came and visited for a few days and loved it as well. Thanks for a great stay, we'll be back! Sam, Tim, Will and Emma
Had a great time. We usually stay at the Regency in Portland but this was so much better. The cabin is very comfortable, well set up, and the location is just perfect. Our 2 dogs also had a great time, loved going down to the beach and got a great workout going up & down the hill. So close to Portland yet by the seaside. Thanks for a wonderful stay, we'll be back.
This home is a wonderful summer rental is a beautiful spot. The house was clean when we arrived, well-stocked with kitchen amenities, comfortably appointed with nice furniture (sometimes the bane of rentals!), & situated in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to a nice sandy beach. We had a perfect week, with plenty of kayaking, biking (Rt. 88 has a wide shoulder for bikers), swimming, & daily walks. No little ones were with us but it felt very kid-friendly, with a nice flat yard & minimal car traffic. Though the house looks simple compared to some of the newer homes in the area, it lacks for nothing & we had a wonderful time. Thank you, Alexa! We didn't want to leave & wished we had more time.
Thank you Alexa for the opportunity to see the way life should be! This state is great, your home was a perfect fit what we needed and we have a large family with four children and in-law who came with us. The home had everything we needed and more. The deck and side yard kept the kids busy while getting ready for the day and BBQ! The location is great for visiting the towns of Yarmouth, Freeport, Portland and Scarborough. Just being there for one week was not enough and we plan on returning to see the other way life should be in the winter!! Thanks again for a great home!!
We wanted to share our wonderful experience of renting this house. I have never written a review before but I think this is a hidden jewel of a rental! The owner was so easy to work with and very friendly. This was a last minute rental and she was made it so easy to rent. This rental is also pet friendly which was a plus for us since at first we had no one watch our dog but we didn't bring him but he would have had the time of his life! It was very pet friendly but you didn't feel like the house had pets there. It is bigger than I had expected from the pictures and very child friendly. We have a 9yr but it would be perfect for any age child. The beach is within walking distance and it is also pet friendly. The house had everything you needed to have a wonderful vacation. We will keep this house in mind if anyone is traveling to the area or is looking for a great place to stay. Falmouth Maine is a very cute town which I was not expecting and we loved the area!. Thanks again Alexa for having a wonderful house that you rent out.
