About the property

Immacualte 2 bedroom walking distance to a white sand beach

Immaculate, breezy and bright, this rental is a short walk to the beach on a well maintained boardwalk. There are still prime weeks available in June, July and August. During those months we book Sunday to Saturday. The apartment is fully furnished, including all linens, towels, kitchen supplies, soaps, tissues, wifi, Cable TV with Premium channels, beach chairs and beach towels etc. There is hardwood and tile throughout, a small 8x8 deck overlooking Great Pond and open fields. Check the map below to see our nearness to the beach. There is a luxury Inn (Inn by the Sea) across the street and a boardwalk to the beach. The restaurant and spa are open to the public. Air conditioning, although available, is rarely needed in this unique location, providing a chance to smell the ocean and hear the surf as you drift off to sleep. A larger map shows we are at the head of a peninsula (Penrhyn Y Mor) with the open ocean on three sides.

Check-in is Sunday after 12 noon, Check-out is Saturday by 3PM. You can book the apartment online or call me directly at 207-799-0899. My email lmorris@maine.rr.com.

About Laura Morris

We have been renting to travellers for 14 years. Ours is a unique spot for access to the ocean and pleasant temperatures allowing us to escape oppressive summer heat. For us it is paradise. We hope you will agree.

Laura Morris purchased this apartment in 1988

Why Laura Morris chose Portland and Casco Bay Area

Cape Elizabeth is a bit of a small penninsula. We are on the eastern most tip so there is water on three sides of our location. When the thermometer reaches into the 90's in South Portland we are likely in the 80's and breezy.

Lovely, well appointed apartment in beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a nice private setting with everything a guest could need! We appreciated the soaps, towels, lovely bedding and hospitable & friendly owners who were close by. The nearby parks and coastline is stunning and fun to explore. Adorable Portland and quaint shops are only a few miles away and the local restaurants were great! We especially enjoyed Bird Dog Road House, less than 1 mile away and delicious food! A really wonderful home away from home for a terrific Maine vacation!

Glad We Returned

  • 5 of 5

We returned to this vacation rental in 2016 to find it as nice as we remembered in 2010: still well maintained, bright and airy, and fully stocked to make our stay home-like and convenient. We enjoyed sitting on the deck when we weren't out and about on Cape Elizabeth, in Portland, or touring the Casco Bay islands. My husband took early morning walks on the beach which is accessible via a short walk across the street and down a boardwalk. The unit has such a comfortable bed in the master bedroom and large closets and storage throughout. It is so quiet here at night. Pure relaxation. Read my review from 2010 to learn more.

Perfect Cape Elizabeth Stay

  • 5 of 5

Laura and Mark are the nicest and most helpful hosts anyone could wish, it was great to have them close by. We stayed for a week and found the apartment spotlessly clean, very quiet and very well appointed in every way. Walking to the best beach is a big bonus, and we also made use of the hotel's bar and spa and of Mark and Laura's swimming pool. Our stay was outstanding in every way, and we highly recommend this property.

Wonderful Location, welcoming host and very clean.

  • 5 of 5

The ease of access/parking and the comforts of home with hosts that took care of our shoveling, it was a treat. We have already recommended it to family and friends. We Loved that we were near many State Parks and coastal beaches. Location made It an easy jaunt into Portland.

Fabulous Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Former residents of the town. Came back for a 2 week visit - could not have been more relaxing. EVERYTHING you need is provided (iron, hair dryer, coffee maker, etc) ...adult kids spent a couple days (here for a wedding), another friend from a few hours away spent a night, so much room, and so convenient to everything. Extremely well maintained and CLEAN. All upgrade finishes - hardwood, tile, just gorgeous. Beach access across the street, local IGA 3 mins. up the road for breakfast foods, turnpike and highway access very convenient. You cannot go wrong with this rental. We will definitely rent here again.

Superb Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Thoughtful amenities; all conveniences. Immaculate, comfortable, quiet. Hosts friendly, but considerate of privacy. Near all on picturesque, pastoral Cape Elizabeth while close to artsy Portland and Casco Bay. We had a fabulous week-long vacation with this property as our "home" base. Far exceeded our expectations.You couldn't ask for more in Southern Maine.Enjoy!
