ocean beach frontHi, I'm Denise Richards and delighted to own and manage Windows on the Sea.   I'm so happy to welcome you to our beach home!

I've been in love with the ocean all of my life, and when I had the surprising chance to buy a place here, I just had to make it work, no matter what.  It has been a very rewarding experience to outfit, equip and decorate my place to provide a wonderful experience for my guests.  That is my highest goal, and I do everything possible to make it so.  From high-end but comfortable furnishings, beds, linens, etc. to a long list of nice amenities, to what's probably the best equipped rental kitchen out there :), to constant upgrading, cleaning, painting, and anything else I can think to do. 

beachAs a retired public relations executive with a hospitality background, I really enjoy interacting with guests, answering questions and being as helpful as I can.

When not doing 'things beach' I partner with my husband Charles in running Charles Fox Guitars and the American School of Lutherie, both operating from our workshop which occupies the lower floor of our SW Portland home.  I also have a small craft business, Sand Dollar Gifts, featuring framed sand dollar art. There are some examples hanging in the condo.

Beyond the beach, my great joys in life are adventure travel and hiking with my intrepid pack, Blue and Tango.
