About lisa bisceglia
I work for a non profit in Nicaragua most of the year, but I call Maine home. I am fortunate to be able to spend my summers and falls here. There is no better place to be during these months than in Maine. I built a tiny house on wheels in the backyard and live there for the summertime. However, I am rarely there as I tend to travel within New England quite a bit when I am in the states. I have loved living in Maine off and on for over 30 years. I hope you enjoy it too!

Perfect Summer Weekend
Lisa was such a great host! We arrived to flowers in every room and a detailed note explaining the neighborhood and where everything was. During an usual heat wave, she took her Saturday to buy us an AC unit and install it which made the house even nicer to spend time in. Everything was in great shape and the house was the perfect spot to go back and relax after exploring Maine. I would recommend this house to families or friends coming to the area!
Nice location in Portland area
Property is located on a dead end street and was not very kept up on the outside and yard was not mowed. However, that being said the owner was very nice and inside the place was very clean. When we arrived a nice bottle of wine was there as well as a book describing everything about the property and area. There was no microwave or television in the place which is more something to note and not necessarily a detractor. Loved how close it was to seeing lighthouses and grabbing an ice cream from Red’s or some snacks at the nearby bakery. The bathroom was small but clean. There seemed to be some water damage in the floor as you stepped by the toilet. Also, the shower has a clear shower curtain covering the window to the outside which wasn’t very private and with broad shoulders, I didn’t much care for my shoulders always touching the two shower curtains. I think it is also important to note that the owner lives in a small home right behind the home at the end of the short driveway. This was fine for us but again just something g to note. I think all in all it was a good place and met our needs. If you are looking for a clean place in the Portland area at a good price and owned by a very nice person but with no frills then this is a great find. We ran around the area a lot and therefore didn’t spend a whole lot of time in the place aside from evenings and sleeping. I think there could be some things done to make this place an even better stay experience.
It was amazing! Lisa is wonderful and very hospitable. Perfect location. Home is great!
This house is a perfect little sanctuary to get away from it all. House is fully stocked with everything you need. Walking distance to the best coffee and beach. Just a quick ride into Portland if you want to be there in the city.
Great place, clean, contemporary. Lisa is great, very friendly and flexible. We could stay later on
Very close to beach and fun, delicious bakery. Our dog loved the beach.
Charming and a great location
Lisa greeted us when we arrived, and a bottle of wine waited in the refrigerator. The house was bright, with an outdoor shower (as well as an indoor one!) and nice cross ventilation. It's a beautiful and safe neighborhood, and we were able to bike or walk to the beach, ice cream, bakery, creperie and fine dining. Downtown Portland was a short drive away.
Portland is the #1 brewery town in the country, and Uber rides are readily available if you tour too many of them. This is an undiscovered perfect vacation spot, and this house sits nicely in the middle of it. We'll be back.
No TV or microwave, and it was fun to wean ourselves from the tube for a week--although there's free WiFi if you need to watch stuff via the internet.
Beautiful place to fall in love with Maine
We absolutely adored this quaint cottage. The owner greeted us upon our arrival and was very willing to help with any questions we may have about the area. The home was very neat and tidy and had all of the necessary essentials. This house was our 3rd stop on an extended journey up the East Coast, so we appreciated that there was a washer and dryer to do a little mid-trip washing. There was even laundry detergent - how thoughtful! The neighborhood was very nice and quiet. We slept with the windows open and the cool Maine breeze lulled us to sleep. In the mornings we took a short walk to the most charming bakery (Scratch Bakery) and grabbed bagels and coffee on our way to the dog friendly beach. Just be warned the bagels sell out by 8:30 (they're that good!)
We are still dreaming about Maine and this wonderful home. We would love to stay here again in the future!
Family friendly Willard Square is a beautiful beachside neighborhood located just 15 minutes by car or 25 minutes by bike from downtown Portland. A short walk to local beaches, lighthouses, shops, playgrounds, bakeries, restaurants and ice cream. Gorgeous state parks just a short drive away and the Greenbelt Trail is only a 10 minute bike ride from the property.
