Enjoy my 2 bedroom second floor oasis in sunny Saco. Located 3 miles from most beaches, centrally located to downtown, Old Orchard, Portland and amusement parks. Perfect for the family or couple making a home for the week or just a few nights. Parking, yard, wifi, and plenty of space. There are 2 bedrooms 1 with a queen bed and the other has a double. The living room has a spacious sleeper sofa. Decent sized kitchen, bathroom, living room and a reading/studying den.

The space

Enjoy the outdoors by taking a bike ride (2bikes provided) along the bike path to Ferry Beach or take the day and explore the Eastern Trailway which starts a few streets over and is a many mile enjoyable ride through Southern Maine. Downtown Saco and the restored Mills complex is a close walk where you can take a brewery or Distillery tour and then sit by the river to enjoy a frosty beer. My property is next to a large grassy park for added privacy and outdoor area.

Guest access

This is a second floor, 2 bedroom, kitchen, full bathroom, with a extra open living room space with 2 couches and lots of seating. There is also a small yard, and private parking for 2 cars. Downstairs is another apartment so consideration and respect is appreciated for the other tenants.
This spot is tucked away and has lots of privacy from the other neighbors.

Interaction with guests

I am generally available at check in to help with any questions. The apartment is equipped with self check in locks and info as well. I'm always available by phone and usually in the area if you need anything. Literature, maps, and how to's are provided in the apartment.

Other things to note

There are many beaches just 3 miles away. I provide beach towels and beach chairs, 2 bicycles, plenty of linen, coffee and very HOT water, heat in the winter and extra comfy blankets.
There is a small yard with a grill and chairs. My property is next to a large school yard with lots of outdoor space.

Melinda was very helpful sending suggestions and directions to areas of interest. She was quick to respond to any concerns. Her house was clean. Nice back yard view, and quiet area. Beds were a little too firm to our liking, so we slept on the couch... It worked. I compared the photos advertised to the home...slightly different. Overall it was ok.

Melinda's place was exactly what the photos showed but even better. It was spacious and comfortable for 2 people and could have easily fit a group of 6 with couch sleepers. There was a nice selection of dvd movies to watch for a rainy day. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, utensils and cookware. Towels and extra blankets were also plentiful. I would highly recommend her home to anyone visiting the area!!

We've had a nice long weekend in Melinda's apartment. The communication was awesome and the place very clean. Would recommend to friends who want to stay in this area.

Melinda's place is located in a nice neighborhood with lots of outdoor activities, and great places to eat (definitely recommend the Lobster Claw). The space was mostly clean, and comfortable, but can use some updates. Melinda was very thorough in her communications and gave lots of tips for fun things to do around the area. Keep in mind, though, that this is the upper portion of the house, and there may be guests downstairs as well.
