Sandy Cove Cottage for Rent in Portland, Maine

Pablo and Andrea are looking for the perfect property for their week-long getaway in Portland, Maine. So far, they have seen a modern carriage house and a cottage that sits right on the water. The last property that they are headed to is slightly north of downtown.

Portland is a cool, hip little city that sits on the classic coast of Maine! It features gorgeous landscapes, lovely lighthouses, distinctive architecture, world-class dining, and a lively art scene.

Portland is Maine's largest city, and is located about 100 miles north of Boston, on a peninsula in Casco Bay. Whether visitors are nature lovers, history buffs, foodies, or fishermen, there's something for everyone to enjoy.

Not to mention, the city has amazing coasts and surrounding islands that are truly entrancing. Tourists can stroll the cobblestone streets of the classic and historic Old Port, or visit the Art's District -- which is populated with an array of art galleries and the Portland Museum of Art.

But Portland has really found its footing with food! In fact, the city was recently named 'Foodiest Small Town in America.' The farm-to-table scene has flourished with chefs from all walks of life taking great pride in sourcing their food locally and organically.

It's the perfect place for New York health coaches, Andrea and Pablo, to vacation for a week-long getaway.

"We are big foodies; we are very conscious about the food that we eat and where it comes from," Andrea explained. "And Portland is such a mecca of farm-to-table restaurants."

For these health enthusiasts, the perfect Sweet Retreat has the following criteria:

  • Kitchen for two chefs
  • Amazing outdoor space
  • Close to dining scene
With a budget of $3,000 for the week, they are eager to see what properties Rene has up her sleeve.

After touring a historic home with modern decor and a breathtaking cottage with beautiful views of the ocean, Andrea and Pablo check out the Sandy Cove Cottage. Located in the northern suburb of Falmouth, Maine, the home is constantly surrounded by sailboats drifting in and out of plain sight.

With three-bedrooms, two-bathrooms, and 2,200 square feet, this property makes the pair never want to leave. And with an amazing deck, and an even better price of $2.300 for the week, Andrea and Pablo are thrilled!

But when they see the galley-style small kitchen, will they slam the breaks on this lot?

"After seeing the other houses, this is a bit of downgrade," said Andrea.

They were excited about the private walkway to the beach.
