Guestbook comments from the owner

June 01 A revelation to us after 20 years of going to the Florida panhandle for our summer vacation.We are completely sold on the beauty of Maine.We loved everything about our week here. Thanks for the gracious hospitality. June 02 Twice as nice as last year. We are very happy to have added an extra week to our stay. Enjoyed the view and walking on the beach and cooking in at our own Windows by the Sea. The view makes every kind of weather exciting!

Perfect Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We needed to get away and this place was perfect! Unfortunately we had very limited time, otherwise we would've love to have stayed longer! The location was perfect and our hostess was most gracious. We hope to go again when we have more time. This place more than met our needs and expectations!

I would rate this 6 stars if possible... Great place, wonderful host! Just the best of the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was very nice and had everything we needed. Wonderful to watch the tide changes and hear the molodic tones of the powerful yet soothing ocean waves. Easy and convenient path to a magnificent beach.

Owner is a fantastic host. Even though the small upstairs unit is connected to the larger house, we felt like we had our own private retreat. We highly recommend this place.

Just Awesome! Thanks Carole!

A perfect, quiet spot for a couple or a small family

  • 4 of 5

If you like a majestic ocean view with waves breaking on a rocky coast, this is the spot. If you like long walks on a nice, sandy beach, this is also the spot! How rare to find both just steps from a nice, clean little apartment over the garage of a wonderful old beach house with nice owners. Probably a little too quiet for families with teens.

Relaxing Time

  • 4 of 5

Location was perfect. Make sure you bring coffee, we forgot and it was 15 minute drive to get a cup.picture perfect setting. Only thing that confused me alittle was the fact that you were expected clean floors, strip bedding and clean bathroom before you left. I never leave a place a mess, but be prepared to leave time to clean up at the end

Overallnice timebeach right there and Portland only 40 minutes away.

Even better than the pictures! We had an amazing week in October for our family of four.

  • 5 of 5

The rental and the beach both, couldn't have been more perfect. The space fit myself and my husband along with our 2 and 4 year old without trouble. We had company one night and it was easy to entertain on the long porch with the great views! We will definalty be back again.

Our stay at the Fortune Rocks cottage in Biddeford Pool

  • 5 of 5

We went to sleep at night and woke up in the morning both to the sound of the waves on the shore. The cottage was clean bright and beautifully decorated. It had everything we needed including the beach right outside your door. We can't wait for next year. Thanks again Carol and family we had a wonderful time.
