About Marie Koerick
I was raised in the NYC area and raised my kids in the Villanova area of Pennsylvania. I moved to Falmouth and this cottage in 2001 and fell in love with the neighborhood. I have been rehabbing and updating the house over the years bringing it to its current lovely condition after purchasing it in 2007.
Marie Koerick purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Marie Koerick chose Falmouth Foreside
I love Maine and the charming, quaint and upscale Foreside area along the water. This house is located on a quiet private street and yet only minutes to downtown Portland. Its the best of all worlds. The beach is private, the evenings quiet and the neighbors are delightful. While visiting my now growing family around the country I enjoy sharing my home with others. It is steps from the beach )less than 30 yards and a kayak rack is available. I am not right on the beach but have limited water views from my windows as shown in my photos.
What makes this Cottage unique
Because this is my lovely home it is decorated with my own belongings and is furnished with items I treasure and my own paintings. I share these things with those who rent it and it has been my experience that my renters appreciate and care for it in a special way. I have recently (2015/16) updated the entire house. I have added new furniture, windows, bathroom, new washer dryer, a new roof and newly upholstered chairs, etc. I use quality sheets and towels and I have added special touches. It is not your average beach rental.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
July on the Bay
This property has more amenities than you could ever need! The kitchen is fully stocked with lots of extra utensils you think you’d never need including; ice cream scoop, bottle/wine opener, chip bag clips, coffee bean grinder, etc. Plus there are place settings for a nice dinner.
The kayaks were amazing! We took them on the bay in the morning during high tide. This was a highlight of our trip, cruising by all the boats in the bay.
There are many churches near by. The Catholic Church is 3min away!
It was a very hot week when we stayed (80’s) so the master bedroom got very hot at night, about 81 degrees according to our baby monitor. We had 2 fans running and the de-humidifier. If you have a child I would recommend bringing an additional clip on fan for the pack n play.
This is a great central location for getting to other cities.
I wanna go back!
We really loved everything about this cottage. Marie was very easy to communicate with, we had a lot of troubles with our flights and she was very understanding. The beach access was so easy. It was everything we were hoping and more. We definitely want to try to go back and stay in this cottage.
Overall, we had a great time. The owner's local recommendations were great. Especially, the Royal River Grill. Only minor complaints would be that the outdoor furniture was dirty. The old shower curtain used as covers for the cushions doesn't do the job. There were cobwebs on the bar stools in the kitchen and some of the dishes were dirty. I would really have enjoyed opening some of the windows to enjoy the fresh sea breeze, but they did not open. I would still certainly recommend the property and I would stay there again.
Sorry about the outside furniture I think I need to eliminate white cushions. But all the windows are brand new and should be able to be opened. I will Certainly check this out. Thank you for your comments.
Nicest Maine cottage imaginable
None better...period. Marie has the perfect location to launch day trips from. This cottage is so romantic, cozy, comfortable and the nautical themed decor is fit for a magazine! Look no further.....book this property!
Impeccably decorated, charming coastal cottage
We enjoyed a lovely four-night stay with our two small children. The home is beautifully furnished and decorated, and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The host was responsive, helpful, and very pleasant to work with.
A note for parents with little ones that the stairs cannot really be baby proofed. Also, in chatting with a neighbor we learned that broken glass is often an issue on the beach, so plan to bring water shoes.
We were there during a record heat wave, so our only desire would have been more air conditioner units. However, the temperatures at night were comfortable with just fans.
The home is in a wonderful neighborhood and is a quick trip into Portland. We would love to come back for another stay!
Great location, lovely cottage with water views and access to beach!
Perfect rental, well equipped even for a large Thanksgiving Dinner! Home had everything you need. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Great location in the Foreside.
