About Sandi Dunham
Tom, a Maine native, and I, an Arkansas native, were married in 1974 and moved to Maine in 1976. We fell in love with the cottage the first time we saw it and lived there many years. We have two grown children and our first grandchild was born in December, 2016. Tom is a commercial/industrial real estate broker and I am retired.
Sandi Dunham purchased this Cottage in 1979
Why Sandi Dunham chose Cape Elizabeth
This cottage was built in 1898 by the Robinson family of Cape Elizabeth. It was won in a poker game in 1900 by a man named Thompson. We like it because it is right on the ocean in a very private setting just 6 miles from the Portland Old Port.

Loved our stay at Becky's Cove
We had a wonderful time at Becky's Cove and loved the property. It was the perfect Maine vacation. Becky's Cove is beautiful with stunning views all around you. We spent most of our time on the adjacent beach which is a short walk from the property. The house was well-stocked and comfortable. We hope to go back next year.
What a great weekend! The little cottage (not too little) was perfect for us, with 3 bedrooms, 1 with twin beds, and a VERY well-stocked kitchen. Sandi and Tom are very nice folks, very friendly and we immensely enjoyed speaking with them while we were there. They offered us excellent local tips, and the property is unbelievable! My only complaint is that the pictures on the web site do not do this place justice - the cottage and location is superior to the pictures!!
What a great weekend and thanks so much Sandi and Tom. Wish you well!

great little place.very private. excellent view. private beach w/ short walk through the rambles. clean water (need water shoes:rocks) no big waves.

queen master with 5 windows and a good mattress.
one double and one twin room very nicely appointed.
old fashion big kitchen.brick fireplace sits between the kitchen and living room.
huge dining room easily seats 12 for company. and deck that seats 6 or more.
this property is much nicer than pics show. sandi is wonderful as host.
An unforgettable memory!
If anything, the description understated the beauty and fabulously convenient location of this property. Portland is a 10-minute drive; the IGA is about a mile away, the lobster pound a mere 2 miles at most. The beaches are only about 4 miles away, along with the Lobster Shack (a must see and eat there!).
The property is beautifully kept and landscaped. The owners were extremely responsive to all questions and provided maps, a state park pass, directions, recommendations for restaurants, beauty salons, etc. The internet connection was excellent, but there's no cell service at the house (it's evidently sketchy all over Cape Elizabeth). The owners provided a landline and all continental US calls were included in the rental. In addition, there were plenty of clean, new towels, and the house was well stocked with garbage bags, toilet tissue, paper towels, kleenex and dish detergent. They even provided new beach towels!
I have already recommended this cottage to several friends. We feel the Cape Elizabeth area is far nicer than the more heavily trafficked beaches south of there. We would definitely go back.
