The space
In fuller detail: Your guest suite overlooks a beautiful expansive view of the pond, our little bridge, acres of near the beach floral and fauna plus you are just minutes from beautiful beaches, lighthouses, a lobster shack, amazing rocky coastline, 2 State Parks within 1.3miles, plus the entertainment & excitement of vibrant Portland, Maine.

Romantic setting, high quality everything, private bath, huge TV, 2 love seats, & dining area. Professionally designed. Luxury+value.

Imagine, you can be minutes from the most beautiful beaches in Maine and 4.1 miles from the Casco Bay Bridge into Maine's most exciting city, Portland, at the same time. Plus you can enjoy beautiful professional design rather than an impersonal Best Western in the industrial part of Portland!

The space is unique because I am an interior designer so I have put my skill to the test creating a home that reflects the beautiful beach surroundings we get to enjoy everyday, all year round. Your space is very impressive and people often comment that it is even more beautiful in person and way larger than it appears in pictures.

I enjoy updating (i.e., retail therapy shopping) so don't be surprised by a new couch or painting (or whatever) that could differ from the last time I posted pictures. This is the fun part of Air BnB for me. I like to "Wow!" people and I really enjoy providing a vacation experience like I wish I could find when I am on vacation.

So, needless to say, everything is new and quality; including the ultra comfortable pillow top mattress and the huge (I mean the size of a tiny NYC bedroom!) freshly updated bathroom. We even offer the option to try all kinds of fancy pillows: Brookstone, Cuddledown, My Pillow, Sleep for Success....

If you still
Need further clarification:
You have your own entry which is somewhat separated from the rest of the house. Your hallway does link to our dining room but if you want to use the shared porch please, please don’t be shy! It is awesome.

Our entry door is in another part of the house. Your living area is the entire top floor of the house and we used soundproof materials in the construction. They work really well so enjoy being noisy!

There are 3 areas of this top floor and they are all yours and private, although there is an additional charge for more than 2 people. There is a big bedroom suite, another sleeping space if you needed for 2 more people & a very large private bathroom.

-You have the entire top floor of the house.

•Your good sized accommodation at the top of the stairs on the left includes 2 loveseats, coffee table , TV with all the channels and a dining space with table and chairs, microwave, fridge etc. All you need for a simple breakfast, lunch or take out.

•There is a second sleeping space on the right with a q or 2 singles (4 are allowed in total so you chose your combination for your needs.)

Between the 2 spaces is a huge bathroom

Downstairs is a deck for hanging out with a grill. We have dinner out there some days and you are welcome to join us with or without a mask according to your vaccination status. It is screened in and a favorite place. It is not child proofed though so children are not allowed.

I hope this works for you. We so enjoy groups and families.

Where you’ll be

Cape Elizabeth, Maine, United States

I often marvel at our good fortune of being so very close to a destination city as cool and sophisticated as Portland, Maine and being at the beach at the same time. We have the best of both worlds. It is no wonder that Portland is on the top 10 lists of awesome places to visit.

I am also not surprised that our local lighthouse is the most photographed in the world. This place is gorgeous. Look up Portland Headlight and you will see why. There is a classic cliff walk to the left of the lighthouse that is so pretty that we had wedding photos taken there. There are actually 5 lighthouses nearby and a bike tour that takes you to all of them...or you could drive. This is an incredible place and we get to call it home and you will get to call it one of your favorite vacation spots if you decide to stay here and we hope you will.

I am by good fortune living in an amazing town by the beach called Cape Elizabeth, Maine. I had no idea how wonderful this place was when we came here 30 years ago. We bought a big house on 2 acres with gorgeous open views of natural Maine flora and fauna just minutes from the beach and just 7 minutes from the Casco Bay Bridge into Portland too! Location! Location! Location! Now the kids are gone, we can't imagine living anywhere else and we really want to give back by helping the local restaurant and State Parks thrive. It is such fun to help people discover the gorgeous simplicity of Cape Elizabeth, Maine and the quality of our fine city, Portland. This is such a big house for just 2 people, but through the advances of the up and coming "sharing community" our little piece of coastal paradise can be shared affordably through Air BnB-paying it forward as they say. :) In the end, we get help in our retirement and you get a very good deal in a beautiful house near the sea and the city plus all the knowledge of a local and the chance to be guided by my (becoming famous) book of what to see and do. We all support the local economy and most importantly for us, we get to meet so many really wonderful people. Plus, we have never been happier! We use to take belonging for granted when...cities were villages and everyone knew our name. Much has changed in recent years. People think you are foolish if you trust someone; keeping quiet as we go through our day. Keeping to ourselves has become the norm. Our society has lost something essential about what it means to be human and a part of a community lately. We say our relationships with other people are the most important part of our lives, yet we all isolate. But, we want to belong. We want to feel welcomed. We need respect. We need to feel appreciated. So, what does this have to do with your Air BnB experience here in Cape Elizabeth? Well, when we started this work we thought we were doing it just to increase our income. We have come to discover that as we provide the kind of accommodations that feel more like home and doing so above and beyond what is expected, we have dared to open our hearts to the world and it has given us a chance to be part of a much larger and much more valuable experience... than spending our leisure time reading a book or watching a show about other parts of the world, other religions, other careers, other economic groups, other age groups. It is real and valuable. We have found true joy in providing this place for you to enjoy during your vacation. Thank you for considering our place and we trust that if you do decide to vacation with us that you will find rest, and a great experience. Please choose us! We will do our best to make it a great vacation. Deborah and Jim

During your stay
We have lived in Cape Elizabeth, Maine for a while and really know it well. We not only know of some of the best restaurants and places to visit, we love sharing this information with others. Another little specialty of ours is finding great deals. There are wonderful happy hours and places that have great specials that only a local would know about.
We do not offer B and B in the traditional sense of Bed and Breakfast but instead a "homestay", there are so many wonderful places to have breakfast around here. Try the Good Table and C Salt. What we do offer is a fair price, a very well kept room and house, and a very hearty welcome.
Recently our guests joined us in the Old Port at Boones, the night before we enjoyed appetizers and a glass of wine with our guests while the sunset, today we will be going to the lake and won't be around at all. There's so much fun stuff to do in this area that we often are out and about, just like you probably will be too. Our guests are as diverse as the world itself, some people love their privacy and there's plenty of that here, some love to be social and we are open for that too.
Whatever makes you happy makes us happy. We want you to have an awesome vacation here in Maine.
