Lovely property but unresponsive owner

  • 4 of 5
Beautiful property as described, some maintenance issues, and initially excellent customer service, but we have not had any response from the owner regarding the return of our security deposit. We have been renting vacation homes for more than twenty years and without fail, owners have returned our security deposits within a few weeks. This owner has not returned our security deposit or responded to phone messages and emails. Very disappointing.

Owner's Response: The deposit actually has been sent back to the renter and I have apologized to him that there was a delay. We are a non-profit whale research organization and the entire team works for passion and the love of the ocean and whales (without a paycheck). EVERY PENNY of the rental goes into the cutting edge research. The manager of the property did not do a complete job this year and we apologize profusely that some of the deposits were returned later than usual. It is hard being out at sea in the South Pacific for 4 months of humpback field season, not knowing exactly what is happening at this end! We are very sorry to those that were disappointed and will find a better manager for when we are gone! THANK YOU.

Reunion Treat

  • 5 of 5
What a great place for my wife and I and our two dogs to relax and enjoy a long weekend for my 45th Bowdoin Reunion. Nan had the place looking spin-n-span...and she is a marvelous property owner & hostess. The setting on the water is superb, and the perfect weather just led to any absolutely magical weekend. just minutes from the Bowdoin campus and all that the Brunswick area has to offer. The smell of the salt water, magical sunsets. Lots of room to spread out in this spacious one level ranch style cottage....very private....just sitting on the deck enjoying breakfast while scanning the vista of the bay is a little bit of Nirvana.....a glass of wine at sunset isn't bad either. Thank you Nan....your engaging personality and helpfulness just made this trip that more special.
