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 & the entertainment & excitement of vibrant Portland, Maine.

Romantic setting, new beds, new bedding, 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 minutes from Maine's most exciting city, Portland, at the same time. Plus you can stay at a beautiful professionally designed home at a rate that is at least half of what you would pay at the 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 new ultra comfortable pillow top mattresses 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....

********Here are the Details of the Top Floor of the house Air bnb rental:*****

You have your own entry which is somewhat separated from the rest of the house. Our living quarters are on the first floor of the house. 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.

There are 3 rooms: Studio, bedroom & private bath

-You have the entire top floor of the house.

•There is a big studio suite with a queen sized bed, small living room and basic dining area with microwave, fridge etc. which is on the left at the top of the stairs.

•You can fit another roller bed in there if you like but it would be just a bit tight. We have a pack and play also.

•There is a second bedroom on the right with a queen sized bed and a single bed (3 people), actually the 2nd single roller bed fits best in this smaller bedroom because of configuration if you need it.

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 also. It is screened in and a favorite place for our guests. It is not child proof though and requires ultimate care and attention by parents.

If you need a full kitchen feel welcomed to share our space. Some our our most enjoyable times have been cooking together with our guests. We can even teach you how to cook lobster.

But in your studio you have the basics, fridge, microwave, toaster, toaster oven, coffee pot and tea kettle etc. so you can put together basics there if you prefer more privacy. Whatever works for you. We are flexible people.

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

Warmly,
Deborah and Jim

Guest access
Guests are more than welcome to chat and hang out with us, if that is what you want and if we happen to be around or available. Check out our reviews. Being friendly is our norm.
Please note that we do not offer B and B in the traditional sense of Bed and Breakfast because of our busy lives, confining tax laws, and the fact that my husband is not always available to cook, plus we want to keep the price low, but what we do offer is a very well kept spacious area of our house with a private bath in one of the best locations around. You have the beach and you have the the fun of Portland right at your finger tips.
We rarely saw our last guests, the night before we enjoyed appetizers and a glass of wine while watching the sunset with another set of guests and today we will be going to the lake and won't be around at all. Life is fluid, but be assured we are always there for you. I respond asap all the time to texts and calls so feel free to contact at all times. Well....before 11pm anyways. ;)
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.

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.
Guests will have access to an amazing deck with an amazing view. This is a favorite place for most of our guests. You also will have open access to times to chat and hang out with us, if that is what you want.
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 low price, a very well kept room and house, and a very hearty welcome. Hang out time works for us, and then we are open for whatever spontaneous gatherings that can happen.
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.
