About the property

4 bedroom house 2.5 bathrooms sleeps 8+ approximately 2000 SF. Beautiful house!

This property is ideal for providing an excellent accommodation for a family or groups that want to live in comfort for their stay. There are 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, with the 4th bedroom being a finished basement area that can be used as a children's play area. The house is meticulously cared for. It also has a gazebo, front and back fenced yards, and is located near the beach and close to all amenities. If one wants to relax a bit away from the more busy areas of Portland, yet still be right in the middle of everything that the Portland area offers, this is a perfect situation to do so.

Inside, on the upper floor there are 3 gorgeous bedrooms that are tastefully decorated, while at the same time offering a cozy place of retreat. On the main floor there is a large area to gather, watch television, surf the internet (via WiFi or provided Ethernet cable), or plan for a day's excursions. In the lower floor/basement, there is a large area that is great for children to play in, as well as housing a television for children's dvds. This area also has a fold-out bed for added convenience and comfort. Everything imaginable is provided with the house to make your stay one to remember, from quality linens and sheets, to a washer and dryer with detergent, or a wireless printer for accessing documents that may need to be printed from a phone or laptop.

Outside, there is a large area that is perfect for letting the kids play or enjoying the fresh air. This property is also well-suited for off-season stays as it enjoys a whole-house automatic back-up generator and a location that makes for easy access to amenities in any season.

About Timothy Bryan

We are a simple family that had the good fortune of discovering Maine later in life, and decided to make it a permanent fixture of our lives. We hope that all of our guests will enjoy themselves and find what a wonderful area South Portland and its near-environs truly are.

Timothy Bryan purchased this house in 2009

Why Timothy Bryan chose Willard

It is difficult to find newer houses in the South Portland area that have a good location to the beach and various businesses, but our house--built in 2005 and continuously kept in an excellent condition--gave us the opportunity to have just that.

What makes this house unique

The best benefits of our house are its great location and substantial size. You can stay in our house and not worry about running out of space, while at the same time you can be anywhere in the Portland area in a very short time. We have dedicated ourselves to ensuring you will be comfortable and happy with your stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The air mattresses were well appreciated, as well as the clean house, which had everything we needed. We'll be sure to recommend our experience to friends back home!

Great home, great owner.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home when traveling for work, but with the entire family. The home was very clean, furnished with everything we might need, and in a great location. Tim was very quick to respond to our questions and other communication. The three floors are all furnished, and accommodated three adults and three kids (ages 12 and under) easily. We found the beds and the couches very comfortable. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Really nice house, great location, great kitchen, plenty of space

  • 4 of 5

Great house, plenty of room, great kitchen, great location ($10 uber to old port), Toast Bar across the street was delicious, overall we were really happy.

Our only complaints (hence the 4 starts): The couches in the living room were awful, so uncomfortable, made the living room unusable, we sat on the floor rather than the awful couches. Bring your own pillows cause the pillows provided were flat as a pancake- and only 1 pillow per person.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! The couches are new (purchased in October 2017), but we are sorry they were not to your liking 😀

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Went up for first weekend of November for a guys trip. The house was clean and spacious for the 8 of us. When it was said it comes fully furnished, it means fully furnished. Everything from pillows and blankets to paper towels and bath towels. Location was very quiet and the yard was spacious. Only a few miles from downtown (very convenient). We will definitely be looking to rent this house again next year. The owner responded very quickly to any questions I had. Thanks Timothy!

The house was great - spotlessly clean, spacious, comfortable. Our family was here for our daughter's wedding and we were able to host our future in-laws for a meal thanks to the well-equipped and stocked kitchen and big dining room table. The location was central to all the places we had to go in the Portland/Scarborough area during the festivities. We enjoyed eating breakfast on the deck outside. There was plenty of room for 4 cars to park in the driveway. We appreciated the communication with Tim and were grateful for the opportunity to have a late check-out. All in all exceeded our expectations. Thank you.

Car: recommended

Located in the heart of South Portland within easy walking distance to both Willard Beach and Portland "Bug" lighthouse, the location is ideal for families and groups to explore the whole Portland area. Shopping and cuisine are within a very short walk or drive, and the Portland "Old Port" area can be reached by driving or taking the walking path across the bridge linking Portland and South Portland.

Additionally, there are multiple parks and businesses within the local area that provide all the services that one could require, as well as offering the benefit of having a family-friendly and peaceful surrounding. South Portland also has the largest mall in Maine that can be reached by a short drive, and the house's location is literally surrounded by the ocean within a few minutes walk in multiple directions. All amenities that could be sought after are easily reachable, and this location is truly in a central location for enjoying the sights of Maine.
