Why Nathan Marcoux chose Scarborough and Pine Point

I fell in love with Pine Point due to it's charm, proximity to the beach, restaurants, fishing and the Scarborough Marsh. It has it all!

What makes this house unique

Great food and drinks, Beautiful marsh views with great sunsets. The ocean as the back yard with 7 miles of sandy beach. There is also a working fishing pier within walking distance with lobster boats and incredible harbor. The home has a sense of peace with nice flower gardens, and a homey comfortable beach feel.

Comforable home in a good location

  • 5 of 5

Location is great! The home was very comfortable for five adults and one toddler. The kitchen is workable and well stocked with spices. We enjoyed the deck for outdoor dining. The nicely landscaped yard and beach chairs were a plus.

Cute house in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the Pine Point Beach House. The house is very comfortable and even though it was pretty hot while we were there, the house cooled down once all the windows and doors were opened and the breeze came in. The backyard was adorable. The house itself is a block from the beach, which was super convenient. There was also a Bayley's Lobster Pound walking distance away where you could sit out (as well as pick up food to eat at home) and there was a great BBQ place (The Garage BBQ) in the other direction. The only minor issues we had were that we ended up having to walk down the beach for about 10 minutes to get to a place that wasn't full of seaweed (not a big deal), some of the screens weren't on tight which let in mosquitos, and I wish that there had been (or we had been able to find) beach chairs! But overall, we had a wonderful time and we would totally stay here if we come back to Maine.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback Jessica and for staying with us! We are glad to hear you were able to enjoy some of the great area restaurants and our home. Since your post I have moved the beach chairs in a more visible location, to make them easier to find. The seaweed moved out right after you left! The town now rakes the beach a few times a week regardless of seaweed, making for a nicely groomed beach. Thank you again for choosing our home for your stay and we hope to see you again next year!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here. The house was very nice and easily held a couple, another adult, and two kids. The location is wonderful - short and easy walk to: 1) the beach and 2) a couple of great places for seafood to eat in or take out (Bayley's Lobster Pound and the Salty Bay). Very quiet neighborhood with almost no traffic - no worries about our 10-yr olds walking from the beach back to the house alone.

Nate the owner is very pleasant and easy to deal with, both by email and in person. Definitely recommend.

Great place in Scarborough, Maine

  • 5 of 5

We spent the 2016 Labor Day weekend at this great house in Scarborough, Maine. The place is clean, well equiped and very close to the beach.

Our host was very nice and helpful.

I highly recommend this place for a visit of this beautiful region.

Our family stay at Pine Point was excellent.

  • 5 of 5

The Beach House was within walking distance to the beach and a short drive to the city of Portland where we spent much of our time. We were a three generation family with grandparents, parents and two grandchildren in their 20's. We enjoyed our stay and the Beach House and highly recommend it.

A wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just perfect, as advertised! We were 11 of us, 3 generations of family, and everyone left completely satisfied with Nate's home and its location. All 3 families had their own sleeping quarters. The garden and outdoor terrace are just lovely and great for eating outdoors. And the fact that we were a 2-minute walk from the beach was a major plus as with 2 and 4 year olds, their parents often had to return to the house for snacks, trips to the bathroom, etc. And the amenities are just terrific - Bayley'sLobster Pound is 2 blocks away and the restaurants in Portland are second to none. So yes, it was an all round excellent experience and we do hope to return next year! Thank you Nate
