Why Nathan Marcoux chose Scarborough and Pine Point

I Love the beach and love the ocean. Pine Point has everything and the house is walking distance to so many great things.

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.

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!

Family Vacation at Maine Beach Dreams, Pine Point

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay, the home's location was perfect for us; scenic & family-oriented. It is in a great "beach-goers" location, close enough to the action of the amusement shops, dining and pier, yet far enough away to provide restful quiet. The home is spacious, clean and comfortable with charming beach decor and ample parking. The back yard and deck was a lovely and enjoyable space for us to relax in the evenings and to dine al fresco. A nearby rental shop provided great service; delivered and picked up kayaks, SUP's and beach chairs/cart to enhance our enjoyment at the beach. We enjoyed the amusement park at the Old Orchard Pier, had a great lunch and delicious ice cream at Bayley's, and purchased lobsters at Bayley's for home preparation in the well-appointed kitchen. We went on a 2-hour schooner sailing trip on the Windemeen with Portland Schooner Company and highly recommend it. It was a very memorable and comfortable family vacation!
