Studio Apartment Close To The Beach, Nicely Appointed
About Brenda Peluso
This is the house I grew up in. My parents bought the house in 1967 when living on Willard Beach wasn't a particularly desirable thing to do! In 1999, we built an in-law apartment for my father and moved back into the main house which is attached to the apartment by a shared breezeway. My father passed away last year and we renovated his space and are happy to offer it to people (with or without their canine family members) on a weekly or monthly basis. I love Maine and South Portland and am happy to share my love of and history with this fabulous place with vacationers. Of course, I am also happy to leave you completely in peace!

Why Brenda Peluso chose Willard
I was so thrilled to move back to the beach house I grew up in and give my children the same opportunities I had as a child. This area is just so great. Good schools, close to downtown Portland and all that Portland has to offer. All this and in a neighborhood that is totally walkable, with access to the beach, the Greenbelt, and Willard Square. You couldn't ask for a better neighborhood to raise a family, live and grow old in!
What makes this Apartment unique
Vacationers will see why I fell in love with this place. The views coming down the street, out the unit's windows, and strolling along the beach are amazing. Enjoying your morning coffee in the sky chair on the back porch with the birds chirping, the surf rolling in and the boats cruising by is hard to beat. The convenience of being so close to Willard Square, Mill Creek, and downtown Portland are another reason this place is so great. As realtors always say, "location, location, location."

Perfect location! 2 houses from Willard beach where I was able to walk my dog off-leash. Close to good restaurants, Scratch Bakery, Portland Headlight, other off-leash beaches and walks, 20 minutes from Portland... cute, equipped studio that perfect for 1-2 people. Fenced yard also helped with late night or early morning dog outings. We loved it here!
So glad you enjoyed your stay! Next season starts in June 2020 - hope to see you then. Happy winter.
Willard beach gem
Tastefully decorated studio steps from the beach. Morning sun urges you to get out and walk the very dog friendly beach. Perfect for a couple. Comfy bed and furnished kitchen. Our October stay was a great base for leaf peeping and exploring Portland. We weathered a nor'easter w 60 mph winds. Lost power when a nearby telephone pole tipped over. Owner proactively reached out to let us know how to drive out of neigh borhood after the storm.
What a Find!
We spent five days in Brenda's studio apt and it was perfect. The location can't be beat and we had awesome weather for late September. We were able to spend time on the beach picking up seashells and just enjoying the Maine coast. This is exactly how a visit to Maine should be for everyone! Brenda was a great host and responded immediately to any questions we had. Can't wait to go back!!!
Second house to path to beach!
The unit was lovely and very comfortable. The location could not have been better for our every day walks on Willard Beach, visits to Scratch Bakery, Flip, and beyond. Would return for another visit in the future! Thank you Brenda!
Thank you, Darryl! I'm so glad you enjoyed our little sanctuary on the bay. Come again anytime!
Cozy place to stay in Portland
Brenda was very hospitable. Her place was awesome. The house was close to the beach and historical places to visit.
We will plan on staying again when in the area.
Thanks for opening your house up to let us explore your corner of the world.

This was our 2nd stay this summer!
This is our 2nd stay at this property this summer. We really like the space and Brenda is friendly and a super reliable communicator. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it and will likely book here again.
Thanks John! The property really likes y'all too!
The Willard Beach area of South Portland is conveniently located a short distance from downtown Portland, Maine - a real foodie destination with plenty of theater, museums and ocean front activities. Willard Square and Millcreek are very close by and offer a great variety of restaurants, shops and bakeries.
