HARBOR OASIS: WATERFRONT W/ PRIVATE OCEAN SHORELINE & UNOBSTRUCTED VIEWS- A GEM!

Southwest Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 1 bath - All on One Floor with Panoramic Harbor Views of the Harbor.

Newly renovated in 2013, Harbor Oasis is a rare combination of in-town convenience in a private tranquil setting directly on the ocean. Located down a quiet lane in picturesque Southwest Harbor - a classic Coastal Maine fishing & yacht building community on the 'Quietside' of Mount Desert Island. Just minutes to some of Acadia National Park's favored spots including Beech Mountain, Echo Lake, Flying Mountain overlooking Somes Sound, Wonderview & Ship Harbor Ocean Trails, Seawall Picnic Area on the Ocean and the Bass Harbor Lighthouse. Easy walking everywhere in town and less than 5 minutes to the Island Explorer bus stop for free shuttle service all over MDI and throughout Acadia National Park. Bustling Bar Harbor, should you tire of the tranquility of Harbor Oasis and the beauty of Acadia National Park, is just 20 minutes away with many shopping, dining and 'people watching' opportunities.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • children welcome

QUIET AND CLOSE TO EVERYTHING

  • 5 of 5
Lovely and well appointed cottage. The kitchen is more than fully equipped. The beds have quality bedding and are very comfortable. Good cross ventilation with ceiling fans and attractive lighting options in the living room. The atmosphere is light and airy. A beautiful harbor view, quiet at night, with an in-town location and feel. We were sorry to miss the renowned breakfasts and treats at the B&B but found that the Sea Biscuits restaurant one block away offered a good breakfast with great blueberry pancakes. A short walk to restaurants, markets, galleries, and bike rental. A great central location and right on the harbor. The owners (Pamela and Bryan) were friendly, easily accessible, and very helpful with recommendations.
We had a wonderful vacation!

GREAT HOUSE, GREAT LOCATION!

  • 4 of 5
We truly enjoyed our stay at Harbor Oasis in August 2013. It was the perfect place to come home to at the end of our busy days. Great hiking and biking trails are a short drive from this location. The cottage is clean and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is fully-equipped. Brian and Pamela were friendly and helpful hosts. The views of the harbor from this cottage are stunning. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch, watching the sunset over the harbor. We highly recommend staying at Harbor Oasis if you are looking for a clean, quiet, comfortable place (with beautiful views) to call home during your stay on MDI.

BEAUTIFUL HARBOR VIEW

  • 3 of 5
The cottage was bright and airy with a beautiful view of the harbor from both the living area and the front porch. It’s within easy walking distance of restaurants, bars and shopping.
Both bedroom doors were warped and would not close. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, glasses and flatware, but curiously not cereal bowls; nor were there any basic condiments such as salt or pepper. The TV doesn’t have a digital converter so only a few channels are available but not stations such as CNN, ESPN etc. There is a blue ray DVD player and a DVD rental store in the village. The cottage’s wi-fi has a fast internet connection. The cottage is in a neighborhood which can become loud in the afternoon with lawnmowers, leaf blowers and local folks doing home repairs. The cottage is more suitable for 2 or 3 rather than 4 since the living area only has seating for 3.

Owner's Response: We were very surprised at this review and certainly wish we had heard about these issues during the stay and had the opportunity to address them. This is the first season for renting the house after our renovation this past winter and spring. Our “Welcome” note gives our contact information and we encourage renters to phone, e-mail or visit us at our local B&B (less than a 5 minute walk) with any questions about the house and area and to get additional information on activities, etc. We believe we could have addressed several of the issues mentioned if we had known about them.
We currently have a family of 4 staying and upon contacting them after reading this review to see if they had any problems, their quote was “Everything is great! Thanks for asking”.
We would like to encourage all potential renters to e-mail or phone with any questions about the house, amenities or location before reserving. And also, when staying at the house, remember to let us know of any concerns/issues as we are local and always available.
