This town-home is incredibly private (we own and rent out both sides) and very pet-friendly! Units are impeccable. Pets are very welcome and we are obsessive about cleaning and maintaining our home! We are also able to fully set the house up for your baby. We've traveled with them ourselves and know how much easier is when you don't need to bring a long a pack and play, high chair, toys, etc. These items are neatly packed away out of sight for those without children.
The home is bright, airy and within a couple of short blocks to the beach. Each side has a private, fenced in backyard and a separate, private driveway. The kitchen is open and renovated with exposed beams and hardwood floors throughout both stories. Upstairs are two bedrooms, both with new queen beds and a full bathroom with a tub/ shower. Downstairs is completely open with a family room and dining area in the front and kitchen in the back. The unit gets great light throughout. There is also a half-bath on the first floor with a washer/ dryer dedicated to the unit.
The backyard is large and private, with plenty of room for your kids to play and BBQ s to be had. The landscaping is professionally maintained and is gorgeous. You're welcome to bring your kayaks, paddle boards, surf boards and any other summer toys! There's plenty of room to stash them.
The house is within walking distance of all of the local restaurants, including Scratch Bakery (just ten buildings up the road) as well as the amazing locally made, Willard Scoops ice cream!

Hi! My name is Maggie and welcome to our perfect vacation spot! I'm in my late 30s and my family comes many, many generations from Maine on both sides - my mom from a long line of dairy farmers and my father from generations of sea captains and fishermen. He was the first generation NOT born on Cranberry Island. Instead, he was born in the bustling village of Southwest Harbor on Mount Desert Island. I myself am a builder and designer and take a lot of pride in providing all of our guests with the kinds of places that we'd like to stay in ourselves. Our standards for design, decoration and amenities are incredibly high and we want you to reap the benefits of this!
Maggie Birlem purchased this townhome in 2006
These two town-homes are located in Portland's hippest area, the Willard Beach neighborhood. Both units are fresh, stylish, super comfortable and perfectly appointed for your trip to Maine. The house is located just a quick two minute walk to the beach as well as to all of the local, award winning restaurants, cafes, bakeries and ice cream shops (yes, there THREE within walking distance of the house!). It's incredibly close to downtown Portland while maintains the privacy that you'd want on your vacation. Our pet friendly policy allows you not to stress with your pet on vacation but we also thoroughly clean and maintain the unit for those who have pet allergies or just aren't as appreciative of pets. You'd never even know a pet has stayed there before! We'd love to have you come stay in our affordable and perfect vacation spot!
We had a great week in South Portland in a great rental. Everyone loved being near the beach and the dog loved being with us. Scratch Bakery a couple of blocks away has the best bagels. Would not hesitate to rent this place again. Thanks for everything Maggie.
Great place to stay in the Portland Area. Close to everything but in a nice quiet neighborhood. Well appointed with basic needs.
We could not have been happier with our stay at this house! It was a perfect walking distance to a little quaint beach, and was also located in a very charming neighborhood. The home had everything for a family with small kids, including a pack n play, high chairs, and even strollers! We didn't have to worry about bringing our own towels or anything! We also appreciated the appliances that were available allowing us to cook at the home and save a little $$ that way. The owners were very easy to work with and very accommodating. They even allowed us in a little early since the home was ready early, which helped a lot when we arrived to the state earlier than expected. We drove 14 hours to get there and arrived much earlier than anticipated. Getting in early helped us immensely, since we didn't have to figure out how to kill time with our 3 tired boys. The home is well decorated and very cozy. My kids were thrilled with the selection of movies and toys they had to pick from too. The home is also close to a lot of really good places to visit for shopping and eating. We visited the Portland Main Mall which is about 15 minutes away, and also a few lighthouses that were also close by. We visited Higgins Beach, which is also very close by, and sat and watched lobster boats, sailboats, and other fun things on Casco Bay. The neighborhood is very easy to get around and is perfect for taking family walks and jogs around town for exercise. We didn't bring our dog with us this year, but the house and neighborhood is also very welcoming of pets. If you're looking for an affordable and very nice place to stay, this is the place to go!!
The whole family loved staying at the house. We enjoyed visiting the nearest beach, eating at the great restaurants around South Portland and Portland and visiting area attractions. The house was very close to the city but in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood. There was certainly a quaint "homey" feel to it that made us very comfortable as if we were in our own home. The owner has put together a lot of helpful information about the area and was quick to answer questions. We really enjoyed this experience and will look to see if this home is available again in the future!
Great location and house. Would definitely stay again. Backyard perfect for two small Yorkies. Make sure you visit Scratch Bakery a two minute walk.
We loved everything about our stay in Maggie's townhouse: location, eclectic and delightful design, private backyard,
well-equipped kitchen, and marvelous expansive dining table are just a few things. We are spreading the word here
in Downeast Maine how great our stay was. Thank you!!
