About Clare Gambino

Having vacationed in Pine Point since 1971 ,and having wonderful friends here , we and our then young children decided we needed to own our special place in Maine .Through the years we have added new friendships with the 38years of summer and winter tenants we have met .

Clare Gambino purchased this apartment in 1979

Why Clare Gambino chose Scarborough and Pine Point

The proximity , (150 walking step)to the spectacular Grand Beach section of Pine Point with a friendly residential feel to the neighborhood and the advantange of a year round house with owners unit and attached rental unit plus a private back yard sold us on this place . Picnic , barbecue , relax in sun or shade in privacy . Our children and grandchildren , all adults now have many happy times here in their memory banks . Weddings , birthdays and holidays have been spent here since we first came for summer in 1971 . So many friendships with local people have enriched our lives over the decades . Don't miss the chance for time at Pine Point , Scarborough , Maine .

What makes this apartment unique

Beautiful 4 season living , so near the beach and yet near every convenience of modern living for entertainment, shopping , schooling, library , community events , health care ,church going , and eating/dining out .and the community of many decades long friendships for us and the younger generations of our family .

Great little gem in Pine Point

  • 5 of 5

We have rented John & Clare's apartment on numerous occasions. We always come back because it's the perfect getaway, it's well situated in the quiet little town of Pine Point which is a far cry from the more busy & crowded Old Orchard. The apartment is comfortable, clean and well equipped with a small backyard with BBQ. It's just across the street from the beach which is beautiful and much less crowded than Old Orchard. The owners John & Clare live just next doors and are the most wonderful hosts always there if you need anything and great just to talk to. They always have a great story to tell. We highly recommend this apartment.

Well cared for property - Very comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Everything needed for a comfortable beach stay was provided. The owners are on-site, and take a gracious interest that all runs smoothly for their guests. Other resident neighbors were warm and inviting. Overall a very pleasant experience.

Cozy, Clean, Convenient, Affordable!

  • 5 of 5

While searching for a non-motel setting near Pine Point and Old Orchard Beach, I stumbled across this rental on Home Away. Although I was weary about booking this place sight unseen I decided to take a chance and go for it. The on-site photos looked really nice but you know what they say about photos. Upon arriving at our rental my husband and I were pleasantly pleased at how accurate the pictures were. The owners of this property have thought of everything, right down to the special coffee filters that fit the coffeemaker. Everything in this rental is immaculate. Short walk to the beach (80ft.). If your interested in spending the evening at Old Orchard, the trolley stops right across the street at the Holiday Inn on the hour. This is a nice perk as parking fees at Old Orchard can be $$$. Although the landlords share the other half of the property you never see them unless you have a problem and they attend to it A.S.A.P.

I've lost track but I think we have been renting here for 4 years and have already rebooked for 2017.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this location several times, and will return there again. The cottage a two minute walk from the best beach (IMO) in southern Maine. Old Orchard beach is 2 miles to the South.

It is clean and well kept up. The owners live in the other half of the duplex, and are available to handle any problems. Small yard with a gas grill, washer and dryer on site.
