About Jennifer

We wanted a convenient vacation home with all amenities for comfort & fun. We love to bike, play tennis, play with our kids, surf, kayak, garden, cook, and hang out at the beach. After 20+ years in the Northeast, Biddeford Pool always is our favorite place in New England!

Jennifer purchased this house in 2005

Why Jennifer chose Southern Coast of Maine

Biddeford Pool is a throw-back to family life of the 1950's plus all the wonderful nearby options of Portland, Kennebunport, and even Old Orchard Beach amusement park. The long sandy beach is the best in Southern Maine for long walks & body surfing . Tidal pools offer endless exploration for sea creatures. Our kids love the freedom to go anywhere on their bikes, especially the daily trip to the village store for ice cream!

What makes this house unique

Beautiful, easy bike rides to Goose Rocks & Cape Porpoise for breakfast or lunch. 'Gone with the Wind' rents top-notch kayaks & windsurfers in B Pool. Kayak out to the Wood Island Lighthouse quite easily or explore the calm waters of the back Pool. Several public tennis courts & golf courses nearby, too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We rented this fantastic house for two weeks in August of this year. It's a gorgeous house - bright, sunny, wonderfully decorated, modern kitchen and bathrooms and supplied with every imaginable kitchen and beach item you could think of. Add a perfect location on a quiet street, right near both a sandy and rocky beach, berry bushes on the property bursting with ripe fruit, two terrific local restaurants and you have a recipe for a superb time you'll treasure.

Fabulous Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I spent five days in this lovely home with all of my extended family for my graduation from medical school at UNE. We absolutely loved the home - its a great space for family, very kid-friendly, perfectly situated for beach walks and Biddeford Pool exploring. We cooked many meals and enjoyed the large open kitchen. The bedrooms are simple but worked out great for us and our large family. If we are ever in the area for another occasion, we would love to return to this lovely home.

Can you say "RELAXING"?

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful with a very short walk to magnificent beaches! One feature our family loves was the stereo system wired throughout the entire 1st floor: the living area, sun room, dining room, kitchen, and patio...all wired and ready for your favorite tunes! Plenty of space and all around comfortable! Will definitely be coming back!

The most amazing place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this property and wished we could have stayed much longer!!

The kitchen was fully stocked and was a perfect kitchen for hosting meals. I loved the panini maker, waffle maker and pull out microwave drawer!

Also, the owners thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable - they had restaurant menu's, board games and even a book of recommended activities in the area. We felt like part of the family!

The house was super clean and had plenty of space (4 bedrooms and even a bonus room). Our cats loved the upstairs super sunny balcony that overlooks the sunroom and we loved looking at the stars through the skylights at night.

Also, plenty of bathrooms (3 and a 1/2) and a great basement for activities for kids.

We highly recommend this property and we hope to go back in the future and stay again!!!

The property is literally surrounded by the ocean with amazing views of the ocean. You are only a short walk away.

Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous home. The kitchen is absolutely the best part of the house! The open concept facilitated great conversation and socializing while cooking for people of all ages! WE enjoyed homemade waffles every morning (waffle iron included with the house) and family dinners in the dining room (seats 10 easily) every night.

The location is superb. We walked and biked everyday (bikes and strollers included with the house). Naps in the hammock and cocktails on the deck rounded out our afternoons. No reason to leave the Pool, but if you do check out Ice Dreams Ice cream on Pool Street in Biddeford and Fernleaf Bakery in Saco, ME.

House is a gem and the Pool is a well kept secret! Thank you, we will be back.
