Its an amazing area and equally amazing vacation rental!!! Portland is a 10 minute drive and easy to get to from where we are.

Ask Beth for any ideas about doing something extra special for your loved one(s). Maine has lots of opportunities for special vacation extras and she has great ideas for vacations, holidays, or special occasions. I actually decorate the bedrooms according to who will be staying. For example, if young kids will be in the 2nd bedroom I transform it into lobster fun. I try to be aware of what my guests might like and do some extra to personalize it just for them.

About Elisabeth (Beth) Vose-Gimbel

My husband is in the real estate field. We love our community and are active in it. We own a panoramic photography business. He does most of the photography. You will see some of his art in the unit as well as stores in Maine including The Portland Head Light and Maine's most famous retail store.

I still volunteer for Son Jack's First Grade teacher and after 10 years of being in Brown Elementary School most people recognize me. Jack volunteers doing "engineering projects" with the First Graders in between his sporting seasons as well as on days that he has home games which start after 3:00. He keeps us busy with all of his sports including basketball, lacrosse and soccer and is a high school junior. We are active in the Boosters of the sports he plays. He can be seen around the neighborhood doing landscaping and working at our local grocery store, Hannaford's, in the produce department on Sundays and during the summer.

Fantastic condo and best VRBO host!

  • 5 of 5

This unit is decorated awesome and in a great location to get to Willard beach and downtown Portland! The owner, Beth, personalizes your stay and has thought of everything to make you feel this is your home away from home! We loved all her suggestions for food and things to do. Sitting on the back porch watching the lobster boats and drinking coffee was quiet & relaxing! We loved staying here!!!

Owner's Response: It was fun to have another family from your area. So fun! You are our 3rd from MD this year. I am glad you had such a ball and you really told me about places I had not been to before so I appreciate that too. I hope you had a fabulous 20th wedding anniversary. Thank you again! It was fun to met you all.

Absolutely PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

My Mother and I recently took a trip to Maine and stayed in this exceptional condo in the Willard Beach area of South Portland. We were spoiled by all the special care Beth, the owner, put in to making sure our stay was the best. The place is immaculate and the views extraordinary; my Mom who is 86 took a walk every morning down to the beach and along the coast with terrific views of multiple lighthouses. We both fell in love with Scratch Bakery just steps away from the condo and made this a daily stop. We took day trips to Peaks Island, Freeport, Kennebunkport and also downtown Portland (which is literally ten minutes away at tops). Great access to fabulous restaurants and shops but distant enough from downtown you feel like you are getting the perfect combination of seaside relaxation and city life. Really just a beautiful setting that you want to return to sooner versus later. This was my Mom's first trip to Maine and as one who has well earned her discriminating taste, the day we were leaving she said, "I'd like to come back". Thank you Beth for having such a wonderful place for us to enjoy - you will see us again for sure!!!

Owner's Response: It was so fun to have met you both. You two really do look alike as well as talk alike. I saw your mom out walking around the neighborhood talking with other neighbors and enjoying herself while you were at yoga. It was as though she had been there many times before. It made me smile that you both fell in love with Maine and the condo. I do hope you both will be back soon. The ocean air smells glorious this morning. I took my goldendoodle for a walk around the shoreline this morning. I love this area too. Thank you so much for staying with us. It truly was fun having you here.

great location..beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed a long weekend in this beautiful, clean, comfortable condo. Owner Beth went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. Short walk to the beach and to a great bakery! I would definitely recommend and hope to be back sometime!

Owner's Response: You seemed to have a lot of fun with your family. It was nice to have met you and I appreciate you staying with us. I have to get down to the local farmer's market now and get a huge box of those blueberries. I had no idea they were available and they sure would make some great pies. Again, it was great to have had you here. Thank you.

Extremely impressed!

  • 5 of 5

Renting with Beth has been our best VRBO experience by far! She has thought of every detail (extensive local information, baby gear, pantry items-just to name a few) and made us feel completely welcome. There are great ocean views from the living area and deck, including beautiful sunrise views. Willard Beach is so close, maybe a 2-3 minute walk just down the block. The beach was perfect for our family with a playground, bathhouse, and lighthouse views. Portland is an easy short drive, but we also enjoyed Elsmere BBQ and Scratch Bakery which are very close by in South Portland. We will definitely choose this rental again when in the Portland area!

Owner's Response: It was so fun to have you "four" staying with us. I am anxious to hear about the arrival of your new baby girl. Please keep me in the loop. It was fun to meet you. You are a very sweet family and I hope you'll be back again. Have a wonderful fall and please keep me in the loop.

Great Portland Place Near Willard Beach

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Beth’s beach house for a long weekend in October 2017, with my daughters and very much enjoyed the experience. The half-house property sits above Willard Beach, which can be seen from the living room and adjacent porch. A 10 minute ride to downtown Portland and a short walk to the Bug Light lighthouse a neighborhood coffee shop and bakery. Beth could not have been more welcoming and accommodating, working hard to give us a home-away-from-home experience.

The quiet beach is a very short walk-down the nearby cross street-probably a 3 minute walk for an average adult. This beach is peaceful and full of amazing views of the ocean! Three magnificent lighthouses are minutes away from this ocean view. The Greenbelt is nearby for a walk around So Portland -much of it along the waterfront. Port Harbor Marina is nearby and hosts a bountiful boating community. Scrumptious restaurants (including Joe's Boat House, and Elsmere BBQ), Scratch Bakery, Ice Cream Shops, grocery are all nearby. The famous Portland Head Light, Spring Point Light and Bug Light are close by and are fascinating to see. Ft Williams Park is adjacent to The Portland Head Light and has ocean side walking trails, a beach and amazing views of the ocean. You can picnic there, talk walks, play some sports, swim or just admire the seascape. There are even old forts to discover. This is a really fun and beautiful area of Maine and we are proud to call it home. This unit and location are a vacationers dream!
