A great house to vacation in.

  • 5 of 5

I am a Mainer who now lives in Omaha, Ne. My family and I just had the best vacation ever at Willard Beach. The house was so great with a Maine look on the outside and a very up dated interior. The view of the ocean, beach and the islands everybody enjoyed. The house had everything we needed. The kids had fun with all the toys. My family came and set on the front porch and had so much fun together.

So thank you for all that you did to make our stay to great.

Leroy Richards

P.S. If I come back again I would love to stay at the house again.

Great location / disappointed accomodations

  • 2 of 5

Beach side location to Willard Beach is a wonderful location. Convenient to local destinations and friendly community - love the beach area and shoreline walking trails...and Scratch Bakery. Nice lawn and outdoor space - including the hen-house where fresh eggs maybe found!

The interior is a bit spartan and outdated - it's time to update the furniture...and seating in living room was limited to a small couch and single chair. Cookware and utensils etc very tired and showing a lot of wear. General conditions throughout showed a lot of wear and limited care & cleaning. WiFi worked occasionally and TV was finicky.

Nancy and Rob are wonderful people and great ambassadors for the community - shared thoughts for future remodels and upgrades which are clearly needed.

We will return to the area again..

Owner's Response: Linda - Thanks for the feedback. We will review the things you mentioned. Spotty internet was easy to fix. Not sure what we can do about more ocean view seating, but will consider. We try to keep the cost down for a house in such a great location, and it is a balancing act. Hope to see you again. Rob
