Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday townhome in Portland - Private Willard Beach Rental

Private, Two Story Townhouse, Close To Beach, Bakeries, Ice Cream & Restaurants

This town-home is incredibly private (we own and rent out both sides) and very pet-friendly! Units are impeccable. Pets are very welcome and we are obsessive about cleaning and maintaining our home! We are also able to fully set the house up for your baby. We've traveled with them ourselves and know how much easier is when you don't need to bring a long a pack and play, high chair, toys, etc. These items are neatly packed away out of sight for those without children.

The home is bright, airy and within a couple of short blocks to the beach. Each side has a private, fenced in backyard and a separate, private driveway. The kitchen is open and renovated with exposed beams and hardwood floors throughout both stories. Upstairs are two bedrooms, both with new queen beds and a full bathroom with a tub/ shower. Downstairs is completely open with a family room and dining area in the front and kitchen in the back. The unit gets great light throughout. There is also a half-bath on the first floor with a washer/ dryer dedicated to the unit.

The backyard is large and private, with plenty of room for your kids to play and BBQ s to be had. The landscaping is professionally maintained and is gorgeous. You're welcome to bring your kayaks, paddle boards, surf boards and any other summer toys! There's plenty of room to stash them.

The house is within walking distance of all of the local restaurants, including Scratch Bakery (just ten buildings up the road) as well as the amazing locally made, Willard Scoops ice cream!

About Maggie Birlem

Hi! My name is Maggie and welcome to our perfect vacation spot! I'm in my late 30s and my family comes many, many generations from Maine on both sides - my mom from a long line of dairy farmers and my father from generations of sea captains and fishermen. He was the first generation NOT born on Cranberry Island. Instead, he was born in the bustling village of Southwest Harbor on Mount Desert Island. I myself am a builder and designer and take a lot of pride in providing all of our guests with the kinds of places that we'd like to stay in ourselves. Our standards for design, decoration and amenities are incredibly high and we want you to reap the benefits of this!

Maggie Birlem purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Maggie Birlem chose Portland

These two town-homes are located in Portland's hippest area, the Willard Beach neighborhood. Both units are fresh, stylish, super comfortable and perfectly appointed for your trip to Maine. The house is located just a quick two minute walk to the beach as well as to all of the local, award winning restaurants, cafes, bakeries and ice cream shops (yes, there THREE within walking distance of the house!). It's incredibly close to downtown Portland while maintains the privacy that you'd want on your vacation. Our pet friendly policy allows you not to stress with your pet on vacation but we also thoroughly clean and maintain the unit for those who have pet allergies or just aren't as appreciative of pets. You'd never even know a pet has stayed there before! We'd love to have you come stay in our affordable and perfect vacation spot!

Lovely comfortable home in South Portland, Maine

  • 4 out of 5
We were pleasantly surprised to find that this home was actually larger than it appeared in VRBO. The hosts thought of everything - spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, thick towels, well-stocked kitchen. When we expressed confusion as to how to use the TV/Cable remotes, Noelle came right over to help us. Also, the back door led right out to a fenced backyard. This was excellent for traveling with a dog. Highly recommend this rental!

We were pleasantly surprised to find this home was actually larger than it appeared in the pictures on VRBO. It was spotlessly clean and the hosts thought of everything - comfortable beds, thick towels, well-stocked kitchen. When we expressed confusion over how to use the remote controls on the TV, Noelle came right over and helped us. Excellent for traveling with a dog - back door opened right into fenced yard. Highly recommend this home to rent!!

Charming home, Charming area

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I spent a week here with our 20-month-old daughter. The place is so charming and looks just like the photos. We lived in Portland before but didn't know the Willard Beach area of South Portland; we are now in love with it. Scratch bakery is fantastic (great morning bagels, pastries and also high quality basics like milk, eggs and cheese); Terra Cotta Pasta Co. is wonderful for meals at home without having to make them from scratch. These are both within walking distance as are several other restaurants.

Maggie was really wonderful and had a pack-n-play, high chair and baby gates for us and even lent us some of her child's toys.

This is perfect for a family getaway. We would definitely go back.

THIS PLACE CAN'T BE BEAT!

THIS PLACE CAN'T BE BEAT!
  • 5 out of 5
I feel we really lucked out with this charming property. It's not only creatively decorated throughout but also well-appointed with everything that you'd possibly need, upstairs and down. The kitchen is equipped with modern appliances and new dishes and cookware, and the back yard features a grill, a fire pit and plenty of comfortable seating in a carefully landscaped enclosed area. Not only that, but there's a shed with bicycles, beach chairs and umbrellas! Everything we could want was provided. To add to the ease of our stay, Maggie was quick to respond to questions by phone or text.

Aside from our satisfaction with the property, the location was perfect for us. It's a short walk to the beach with a path that starts at one end and goes around Southern Maine Community College campus. If you're brave, you can also walk out on the rocks to the lighthouse. Portland is just a 10-minute drive with loads to do there and in the surrounding area. Vacation highlights: bagels and coffee at Scratch Bakery; ice cream at Scoops; Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth; the Old Port; Portland Museum of Art; Munjoy Hill along the Eastern Promenade. So much to do though just relaxing on the beach and soaking up the view was fine for us many days. To top it off, our dog had a blast. This is a very dog-friendly town and our Harry took advantage of every meet and greet and romp possible. We liked this spot so much we've already reserved 2 weeks for next September.

Maggie's place is spotless and beautifully decorated - and the location can't be beat! Walk to bakery, restaurants, ice cream, the beach... Amazing spot, beautiful place and terrific owner! Couldn't have asked for anything better. We had a wonderful time and we'll no doubt be back. Thanks for everything, Maggie!
