Hidden. Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This home is very clean, comfortably furnished and very easy to come and go from. Beach is amazing and private. Views are gorgeous and constantly changing. 5 minute drive to local gourmet market, lobster shack, state parks. 5 minute walk to local ice cream shop. 15 minute car ride to downtown Portland which hosts some of the best restaurants in New England.

We will definitely be back. Thanks Karen for sharing your special home!

Back to Maine done simple.

  • 5 of 5

I'm originally from Maine and now live in the beachless Midwest. So the trip was a positive double whammy. A refreshing return to my home state and a pinnacle of a place to relax and sink into it. The path from the yard meanders down to the beach. My 8 & 9 year olds boogie boarded (thanks for the abundance of boards and chairs!) and walked down to the snack bar at Crescent Beach for lunch and junk. Great nights on the deck, which makes the place truly special. Unimpeded views forever on two sides. Sleep was a breeze. A throwback in time and an easy way to spend a week. Highly recommended for a an authentic Maien vacay.

It is hard to even describe the tranquility of this home. The location simply cannot be beat. We could spend our entire vacation just sitting on the deck and enjoying the sweeping ocean views, the endless bird & glow bug sittings and the absolute privacy. Wonderful for all, including families! And I would be remiss not to mention what a joy the owner is and the absolute love and pride with which she cares for this property. We can't wait to return!

Great location, clean well kept home

  • 5 of 5

The house location is perfect. Lots to do in the area or just walk 2 minutes to crescent beach.

Property was very clean, well maintained.

Beach chairs and even some digging toys for children were right on site. Place is fully equipped and ready to go.

Owner was easy to work with as well.

Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

The property is very very nice. Super clean. Great views. It is well furnished with new linens, towels, etc. The kitchen has new appliances and is well appointed with just about anything one would need to prepare food. The big wrap-around deck is terrific for morning coffee and evening dinners. With little kids, the laundry in the basement was indispensable. All-in-all, a very comfortable place to spend a summer vacation. As for the location, I grew up in the Portland area and my family and I come back often to visit family and friends. Thus, this review may offer more of a insider's view. The beach is directly in front of the house. It's a large beach, and even on the best of beach days, never feels crowded. Kettle Cove is just to the east, a 5-10 minute walk, and is a great place to take little kids to investigate the various tidal pools filled with tiny crabs and periwinkles. For those who want to do a little exploring but not spend too much time in the car, the property is located just 20 minutes or so from downtown Portland. Two Lights State Park is just a short 5-10 minutes drive. There are also several other beaches in the area, each with its own personality -- also within a 10-15 minutes from drive from the house. There are ample shops and restaurants along Route 77, the main road, including a terrific ice cream stand but not so many as to make it seem overcrowded. We had a great stay. We would go back.

Exactly what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about this Crescent Beach home! Very clean, decorated well. The photos do not show the smiles that will be on your face constantly! The deck was our favorite. Easy walk to the beach. More than enough 'extras' provided for all your needs. We are coming back! Great location, easy access to the Old Port, Maine Mall, groceries.
