We loved it!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

One of Maine's finest gems. My Family loved our Vacation in Portland, reminded us of a little larger Nantucket with lots of Islands to visit nearby with Portland's Casco Bay Ferry services. . This property gave us the feel of Luxury, comfort and a feeling of being home. The property is top notch and we hope to return next year

Wedding Party Gala

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here the week before my wedding. We could not have asked for a better rental. The owner was wonderful and accommodating (even letting us in a night early at the last minute because we arrived in town earlier than anticipated!) His niece, the property manager, couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.

The house itself was spectacular, fitting all of our motley crew nicely and comfortably. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out and enjoy the features of the house.

The heated pool and the huge hot tub were huge hits, especially since there is such a beautiful view overlooking the Back Cove and downtown Portland. When we weren't outside swimming or sunning ourselves on the beautiful brick pool deck, we were inside playing with the beautiful nine foot pool table in the living room, or watching the huge, beautiful flat screen T.V.'s in the den or the finished basement.

The kitchen was large enough and well stocked enough to handle many cooks preparing meals for 10 or 12 people at a time. It was easy to maneuver through and enjoyable to cook in. My maid of honor even used it to bake my wedding cakes!

The day after the wedding we hosted a pool party for about 30 people. There was plenty of room and seating for everyone to lounge around the pool, and the huge commercial grill was great for making burgers and brats for a crowd that large.

Overall, we are all very happy with out stay at this property. I would definitely recommend it, and I would definitely rent this property again!

We Felt Right at home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home two years in a row, one week the first year, two weeks the second and are coming back this year. We loved it!!! Although there was road construction the second time around which we know has been completed, we will keep coming back for as long as the present owners make it available. Just spectacular in every respect!!!!!! My Family & Kids loved the Heated Pool & Spa. I've taken up playing Billiars after playing on that table for our Vacation, so much fun. Mr. & Mrs. Renolds

Nice house, pool and patio. Fair location. We were never personally greeted or told anything about the house or the Portland area. The road was completely torn up and there was a bees nest in the chimney which allowed bees into the house. The TV in the nicer guest bedroom didn't work and was awaiting the cablevision repairman.The owners had too many personal items throughout the house even in draws, closets, ect. The house was not managed well as a rental. It was overpriced and a 50% deposit...... insane!!!!!.

Bridal Family's Secret Castle

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter was married last summer in Kennebunkport, Maine. We wanted a Classic Maine Summer home to House the Bride and our Family, for before and after Wedding Preparations. This Home, so warm and inviting, delivered more than it had promised in the site brochure. We were met by a welcoming staff that familiarized us with it's amenities, the Heated Pool, charming grounds along with the Hot Tub, Pool House, the modern facilities throughout the home. We're from Malibu Beach, Calf. exploring Portland was so much more than we had expected, and clearly we would not hesitate to return in the future. We've rented posh vacation homes all of our adult lives; this property would be on the top of our list.
