Its an amazing area and equally amazing vacation rental!!! Portland is a 10 minute drive and easy to get to from where we are.

Ask Beth for any ideas about doing something extra special for your loved one(s). Maine has lots of opportunities for special vacation extras and she has great ideas for vacations, holidays, or special occasions. I actually decorate the bedrooms according to who will be staying. For example, if young kids will be in the 2nd bedroom I transform it into lobster fun. I try to be aware of what my guests might like and do some extra to personalize it just for them.

About Elisabeth (Beth) Vose-Gimbel & Paul Vose

He keeps us busy with all of his sports including basketball, lacrosse and soccer and is a high school junior. We are active in the Boosters of the sports he plays. He can be seen around the neighborhood doing landscaping and working at our local grocery store, Hannaford's, in the produce department on Sundays and during the summer.

A comfortable and relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

My adult daughter, 4 year old granddaughter, and I stayed here for 4 nights on a recent trip to Portland. The condo is nicely decorated and well maintained. Beth, the owner, is very thoughtful and goes above and beyond expectations to make sure everyone has an enjoyable stay. She has stocked the place with games and puzzles for indoor use but also includes everything you would need for the beach--umbrellas, beach chairs, sand toys, boogie boards, even a little cart to haul everything. The location is great, a short walk to the beach and also to a cute little ice cream store and an outstanding bakery. Several good restaurants and take-out places are close by, but the kitchen has all the dishes and utensils you need if you want to cook on your own. I would stay here again and would highly recommend it to any small family or group.

Owner's Response: What a great "girls mini vacation." Claire was absolutely adorable. She seemed to be enjoyining every inch of the trip. It was fun to see you every now and then because the smiles on your faces were from "ear to ear." It sounds like you covered a lot of territory and I was so excited to hear about making the fairy houses on that island. I bet a lot of little kids will love that. I had no idea. It is new since Jack was little. Thank you again, Beth

Exceptional!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental exceeded all expectations! Super clean, gorgeously decorated and all the amenities of home. Beth goes above and beyond! Quaint location within a very short walk to Willard Beach, the local bakery and ice cream store. Beth has really thought of everything you could need to make your vacation effortless. From fresh linens, all the kitchen amenities and even making sure the fridge and pantry was stocked with essentials when we arrived. We highly recommend staying here and will absolutely return again! Thank you Beth for your generous hospitality!

Owner's Response: It was so fun to have you stay with us again this year. I simply cannot believe how much your kids have grown in one year! I am so happy that you had such a wonderful time. It was fun to know that you played board games in the evenings. It really was a pleasure to see you again and hopefully your plan to return again next summer will happen. I'd love to see you again. Thank you so much, Beth

Owner's Response: It was fun to have our first AZ family! I am so glad you had such a great time here in Maine. Josie was glad to get to head over and meet you in the yard. Although she cannot go in our vacation rentals she is always happy to meet everyone and say hello in the yard. You were a very nice family and we appreciate you staying with us! Thank you again, Beth

Best place we've ever stayed!

  • 5 of 5

Look no further and book this beautiful place today. We loved every minute at this property and wished we had stayed longer. The location cannot be beat. The beach is an easy walk and probably one of the most fun beaches we have ever been - kids explored in tide pools, climbed on rocks, walked to the lobster shacks, played on the playground, collected sea shells, and made friends for 2 days straight. Beth provided every single thing we needed for the beach, even bringing over brand new beach toys. For breakfast every morning we walked to the BEST bakery we have ever found and enjoyed amazing coffee, bagels and home made pop tarts. Every evening, we walked to Willard's Scoops for home made ice cream that was incredible. We could easily drive (very short distances) everywhere else we wanted to go - whether it was Portland, lighthouse sightseeing, other towns, or simply to the grocery store. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful and neighbors are lovely. There is a great little yard that our kids played in every evening as my husband and I sat on the deck watching the boats coming and going. Beth is the most gracious person we have ever met. She thinks of and provides EVERYTHING - snacks, cooking supplies, towels, beach towels, beach supplies, and even stocks the fridge with staples you might need for the week. She made sure there were games and coloring books appropriate for my kid's different age levels. We played a different game every single night and could not have enjoyed our family time together more, thanks to Beth. We followed many of her suggestions about where to go and what to to eat and she was not wrong about anything. We honestly cannot write enough about how thoughtful she is and how amazing our vacation was. We hope to return many more times to Beth's amazing place. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

Owner's Response: I simply do not know how to respond to your more than thoughtful review. You were a very nice family and it makes me exceptionally happy that you all had such a wonderful time here in our little slice of paradise! It was fun to have met you and I really hope that you will be able to return next year-or this fall. I am also happy to be able to have helped a little bit with your new project in VA. My best to you and thank you so very much.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our dearest friends for our daughter's wedding in August. It was away from the hustle but close enough to downtown Portland to make it easy to get to all the venues. It was also within walking distance of Scratch Bakery. So yummy but not a good thing when trying to fit into wedding clothes! It was a scorching hot weekend but we had a breeze on the deck which was lovely when we sat out to enjoy the view. The property is well appointed and Beth is a fabulous host. She makes it feel like your own home away from home.

Owner's Response: It was fun to have met you four. It sounded like you had a full plate with all of the wedding festivities all over Portland. What a nice event. I hope you all will return. Thank you so much, Beth

Wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved being here. A very high quality yet comfortable place to kick back and enjoy yourselves. We had stayed at Ocean View while we were doing some business and looking around at real estate. We brought our kids to see where we were contemplating a move and stayed at Sea View with them. Both places are really well thought out and comfortable. We could not think of anything additional we would want that Beth did not provide. She had additional information for our kids upon arrival. These were teenage things to do that her son enjoys. It helped our kids try on this move and was very thoughtful of her to do. We really loved being in both Sea View and Ocean View. The views are fabulous and this is a great area. You'll love staying in either Vacation Rental of Beth's.

Owner's Response: It is really a bonus knowing that you will most likely be our neighbors somewhere in the area soon. That is a sign you love it here as much as we do! Your kids are very nice and so enthusiastic. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I will see you back here again soon. Wait until you are in the warm cozy inside and watch the ocean views as it snows. I love that scenery! Thank you so much.

The quiet beach is a very short walk-down the nearby cross street-probably a 3 minute walk for an average adult. This beach is peaceful and full of amazing views of the ocean! Three magnificent lighthouses are minutes away from this ocean view. The Greenbelt is nearby for a walk around So Portland -much of it along the waterfront. Port Harbor Marina is nearby and hosts a bountiful boating community. Scrumptious restaurants (including Joe's Boat House, and Elsmere BBQ), Scratch Bakery, Ice Cream Shops, grocery are all nearby. The famous Portland Head Light, Spring Point Light and Bug Light are close by and are fascinating to see. Ft Williams Park is adjacent to The Portland Head Light and has ocean side walking trails, a beach and amazing views of the ocean. You can picnic there, talk walks, play some sports, swim or just admire the seascape. There are even old forts to discover. This is a really fun and beautiful area of Maine and we are proud to call it home. This unit and location are a vacationers dream!
