My husband and I both travel for work. So while we love calling Maine and Willard Beach our home, we're often on the road. We're thrilled to share our cute neighborhood and cottage with visitors while we're away.
Every Superhost has their own style, but they've all reached key hospitality goals.

Kristen's house was perfect for a fall getaway for my wife's birthday weekend. The house was spacious, clean and very accessible to the beach as well all the best destinations in Portland.
Perfect beach cottage! Very cute, comfortable, clean and well stocked. Kristen was very accommodating with all of our requests (some last minute)! We loved walking to Scratch Baking Co. and to the nearby beach. It was a very quick drive to downtown Portland as well as multiple parks. All in all, a wonderful stay - only wish it was longer!
Kristen's home is tastefully furnished and well-stocked with anything you need for a relaxing, wonderful trip. We stayed for a week and had a lovely time visiting Willard Beach, just a short walk away, where our four-legged companion could romp freely in the morning and evening with dozens of other pups! Kristen's guidebook suggestions were spot on. Portland is an incredible foodie destination!
The cottage was beautiful and just as described. Everything we needed was there - extra towels, kitchen equipment, etc (even dog treats!). It's walking distance to great food - an Italian prepared food spot as well as bakery/sandwich shop and ice cream as well as a pet store.
The deck could not be more relaxing, and very safe for the dogs.
Kristen couldn't have been nicer and the guest binder is incredibly useful.
We had a fabulous stay at Willard Beach Cottage. The cottage itself is clean and comfortably furnished. Scratch Bakery and Willard Scoops are within easy walking distance, and the beach is just a few minutes away. Kristen was a great hostess, checking in at the start of our stay to make sure everything was fine --and she provided a very helpful notebook of info about the cottage and local eateries. We felt right at home, and hope we have the chance to return!
This was our first trip to South Portland and the Willard Beach Cottage turned out to be a wonderful find. The place was clean, spacious, and close to a lot of great amenities -- a bakery, ice cream shop, and (of course) the beach!
Kristen helped us with some local eatery suggestions that also turned out to be great. We would highly recommend this location to others.
Kristen was extremely responsive and clear with the necessary instructions regarding this property. She provided great recommendations for things to do in the area. The property was located in a very quiet area of South Portland yet close enough to enjoy the beach and a quick drive into downtown Portland.
We were in town for a family wedding and this cottage met our needs nicely. Great location in a very quiet neighborhood. The kitchen and breakfast nook was great for morning coffee and planning the days activities. The back yard deck is secluded and a good place to end your day with a nice bottle of wine. Scratch Bakery is awesome and within easy walking distance.
Kristen was very helpful and responsive. She gave us information and directions to her favorite spots and destinations. The Portland area and coastline is a beautiful place to visit.
The house was very cute, comfortable, and in a great location--just a few blocks from the beach and a very short drive into Old Port/downtown Portland. Kristen even left us a bottle of wine and welcome note when we were checking in. I would definitely recommend this!
Everything was perfect at Willard beach cottage, all we expected and hoped for in a romantic getaway!! Cool, quiet, airy, comfortable, clean, modern, and simplistic. The home was equipped with everything that was important to us, spacious, interesting, the patio in the back was private, and the stars at night lovely.
Kristen was a delightful guest. She arranged for her visit at the last minute, and was very easy and flexible to communicate with. She sent us an email upon departure letting us know that sheets were in wash and dishes were clean! What a wonderful person to have in our casita. We hope she comes back soon.

I was a pleasure meeting Kristen and her friends. They left the house in impeccable condition. Strongly recommend her as a guest.
Kristen and Ed were great guests. They are welcome back anytime and I recommend them both to other airbnb hosts
Kristen is truly a superhost. Her home is thoughtfully appointed with everything you'll need and she'll work with you to ensure your stay is perfect.
The location can't be beat. Willard Beach is a really fantastic place to call "home" for a week or month of the summer. It's superb in the winter for those of us who love bundled-up walks on quiet beaches and cozy nights cooking and relaxing indoors.
Kristen knows the neighborhood, the city of Portland, and Maine in general very well -- use her expertise if you need suggestions.
Kristen and Ed are great friends of mine and some of the best people I know! I've stayed at their house on several trips to Maine and have loved every second. They are in a great location that is a short walk to the most beautiful view on the ocean I've ever seen as well as being in a pretty quiet neighborhood. Their house is super cute with a GREAT deck out back to enjoy the awesome Maine weather. I would highly recommend their house if you're looking to rent in Maine!
