Willard Beach Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Private, Two Story Townhouse, Close To Beach, Bakeries, Ice Cream & Restaurants

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!

About Maggie Birlem

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

Why Maggie Birlem chose South Portland

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!

Perfect cozy stay for fall

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our fall get away, it's adorable and feels homey. Great fenced in yard for a dog. Nice short drive to downtown Portland but the neighborhood was cute and fun to walk around and close to the beach and lighthouse. Maggie was great work with as well!

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying in this rental. It was well-equipped, clean, and the beds were comfortable. It was also in an awesome location (so much so that I started looking at real estate in the area!). Would definitely stay here again.

Well maintained property near everything.

  • 5 of 5

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.
