Willard Beach is in a *quiet neighborhood* of South Portland. Located on picturesque Portland Harbor, the beach has fine white/gray sand. From the beach, you can see Spring Point Lighthouse, House Island, and Fort Gorges. Just four acres in size the beach is enjoyed immensely by visitors and locals alike. Spread out in the sun and take in the views of Cushing Island and Ram Island Light in Casco Bay. Go for a refreshing swim, breathe in the salty air, listen to the buoys clang offshore and watch the ferries ply the waters of the bay.
Willard Beach is a very family friendly neighborhood. Nearby there are a wide variety of restaurants, bakeries, outdoor activities, nighttime entertainment, free public parks, tennis courts, public golf course, the beach and shops. Downtown Portland and the Old Port are only minutes away. From there you can access the Casco Bay Ferry and enjoy a day on one of the nearby islands. You will also find museums, shopping, the farmers market and many local tours available in town.
Originally from New York, I moved to Maine 20 years ago and never looked back. I work as a psychologist and an ADHD coach, am a parent to the most amazing kids and human to two adorable dogs. I enjoy taking advantage of all the adventures that Maine has to offer. Similarly, we all seek adventures in other parts of the world and have made some amazing memories away from home.

I love this house! The neighborhood! The beach! I have had many connections to this area for several years. When this property went on the market I snatched it up because I wanted a place to relax, have fun and share. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
I have added some touches to make this house FUN! Games, activities, and interesting things to see, make your stay more interesting and playful. Whether you are bringing the kids or it's a "just adults" getaway, there is lots to do both in and outside the Fun-K house.
This is not a party house. It is located in a quiet neighborhood. It's important to me that my guests have fun, but also important that my neighbors are respected.
Should I say the word 'Beach' on more time? Willard Beach truly is a gem. Whether you want to just relax in the sun, go kayaking, stand-up paddle board, go for a walk with your dog, or take a leisurely swim, Willard Beach is ideal. The best bakery in the world is also nearby at Scratch Bakery. You really don't have to leave the neighborhood to have everything you need to have a relaxing or adventurous stay. But if you do, Portland and the Old Port are only a short distance away.
We came for Thanksgiving to visit family living in the Portland area. We ended up cooking Thanksgiving dinner in the very pleasant kitchen/dining room and it worked well. Nicely updated and serviceable kitchen. The bathrooms were also very nicely updated (it was cold and we really enjoyed the in-floor heating!) The living space and bedrooms were small but well-appointed and very comfortable. My 2 children (ages 5 and 7) loved the clever touches for kids (mini-putting green in the kitchen, dragon blankets in the bedroom, hopscotch mat at the entrance). We have an elderly dog and appreciated being able to let him out in the backyard in the middle of the night. The house is a few blocks from a sweet little beach with a playground. And the bagels at Scratch truly are THE BEST (get there early!). This house was as advertised and we would happily stay there again. It was very clean and had everything we needed. Thanks for a lovely stay!
Very clean and well equipped! Great set up for a family. Location was perfect too! We enjoyed our stay and will be back again!
I went to the Fun K house with a few friends and the house was really comfortable. You will see that it is actually way bigger than what it looks in the pictures. Everything is also fairly new. Owner allows the use of a bunch of material like BBQ, molki game, chairs and more...
Willard beach is really close but the beach itself is OK. Really beautiful though. Other beaches are close (for example Higgins beach) which gives you lots of options.
We had a bad luck with a shower but the owner was responsive and caring. Issue was solved in a heart beat.
I highly recommend it.
We loved our time in south Portland. Really fun. Super cute house; It had everything we needed for a week of relaxing and going to the beach. We would definitely stay here again.
This is our second year staying at the Fun-K house and we had a great time. The location is really ideal and the house is fully stocked (and immaculate). We love the Willard Beach area and the convenience to amazing bagels at Scratch, ice cream at Willard's Scoops and a variety of walkable or short drive restaurants.
House was ok, sofa bed was broken so good thing we brought an airmatresses
The Willard Beach neighborhood has wonderful restaurants, a local theater, outdoor activities, and, of course, a wonderful relaxing beach nearby. Must sees while in Portland include various nearby lighthouses, state parks, LL Bean (24/7 shopping!), the Old Port, and the islands of Casco Bay.
