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.

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

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

Memorial Day weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house in a fantastic location for beach going(2 minute walk) and family fun. We were 2 families with 4 kids and our kids loved this house including the backyard and the hidden space behind the bookshelves. The house is well stocked with cooking, serving ware and plates and utensils. We are a very culinary minded group and we're very satisfied with our ability to grill, steam lobsters and get our families breakfast made every morning. All in all one of the best rentals we've ever found through Homeaway. Thanks Nathan!

For our second summer at the Maine Dream House, every thing was perfect. We were a party of 10 persons (including 6 kids). We like the quiet street , the 2 minutes walk from beach and the Baileys Lobster Pond (evrything is good there!) Each family have the space they needed. The space behind the books shelves is perfect for teenagers. They can have their own space! And they like it. We recommand this house. The owner is very kind and easy to deal with! Great place to rent!
