We wanted a convenient vacation home with all amenities for comfort & fun. We love to bike, play tennis, play with our kids, surf, kayak, garden, cook, and hang out at the beach. After 20+ years in the Northeast, Biddeford Pool always is our favorite place in New England!
Mark purchased this House in 2005
Why Mark chose Biddeford Pool
Biddeford Pool is a throw-back to family life of the 1950's plus all the wonderful nearby options of Portland, Kennebunport, and even Old Orchard Beach amusement park. The long sandy beach is the best in Southern Maine for long walks & body surfing . Tidal pools offer endless exploration for sea creatures. Our kids love the freedom to go anywhere on their bikes, especially the daily trip to the village store for ice cream!
What makes this House unique

Our family is so grateful to have been able to stay at The Mermaid House for an early Thanksgiving celebration. The kitchen is such a gathering place. Dining room was perfect. Bedrooms very accommodating. The Audubon trail is gorgeous! A perfect weekend. Thanks to the owners for letting us enjoy this little piece of paradise.
Perfect Family Home
We had a great time in Biddeford Pool and The Mermaid House was perfect for our family. Great location to walk to the big beach and Little Rock beaches. Stocked garage for kid and adult toys, quiet street to enjoy bikes and scooters and perfectly stocked kitchen to make wonderful meals. Great outdoor living area to read, eat and enjoy! Thanks for a wonderful stay.
Nice break by the sea
Amazing what they have available in the house to enjoy your stay
Great house - great location
Th house was very clean and comfortable with a great location - three beaches within easy walking distance. The evenings were quiet and enjoyable. There are few places to eat near the house but the owners provided a grill with plenty of propane which we used each evening.
Very well kept and beautifully designed home within a pleasent minute walk from the incredible ocean
This house is perfect for a larger group and families. Everyone can hang, play, cook and eat in a large group - yet there are plenty of beautiful rooms to retreat. The surrounding homes are beautiful and the incredible ocean is right there within a minute!
Awesome location and house!
First time to Biddeford Pool and we'll definitely be back! I invited my five siblings and our parents for a fall weekend with lobster and cocktails (love that icemaker) and everyone loved it. House was big, clean, comfortable and very well appointed. Jennifer was easy to reach and checked in to make sure we were OK. Thanks so much.
