About Sunny Townsend

The Callahan family first came to Higgins Beach in 1947, when Philip Callahan, grandfather of current owner, Michael Gentile, brought his wife Joyce to the beach for the first time after WWII. The Callahan/ Gentile family has never missed a summer at Higgins in 66 years! Over the years, the family has grown exponentially and all of its members have developed Philip's love and attachment to Higgins. Today, over 30 family members and friends, including several 4th generation Higgins Beachers make an annual trip or two to Higgins. As the family grew in size, it was increasingly difficult to find enough homes to rent to allow the family to be together at the beach they all love so much.

Sunny Townsend purchased this house in 2013

Why Sunny Townsend chose Scarborough

Location, location, location! The idea of Family Tides was born out of love for Higgins Beach and out of necessity; a big house where multiple families and generations can gather to enjoy this great place! We know many families share similar histories and love for Higgins. We hope this house will allow other families and friends to all stay under one roof and create memories of their own for decades to come.

What makes this house unique

Newly constructed with breathtaking views, top of the line amenities, and space to accommodate large or multi-families. All directly across from the beach!

Cumberland, Maine

Amazing home perfect for large families with children!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four, two under 4 years of age, shared an amazing 5 days at this property. The house is very well laid out for multiple families or one large extended family. The kitchen is fully loaded, so we enjoyed lots of cooking and family dinners looking out over Higgins Beach. Only steps across a quiet street to enjoy Higgins Beach. Our kids loved riding their bikes around the quiet streets and over to the end of the beach where the shipwreck is. Lots of areas to explore. Location is close to many touristy spots along the coast of Maine, as well as a short drive into Portland. We hope to spend another week there next year. High quality construction and amazing views of the ocean from every spot in the house. Amazing!!
