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:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • pets not allowed
  • non smoking only

Great Location

  • 5 of 5
Very nice, close to town center yet private with a great view, Clean and well maintained. Can hear traffic outside from main road but not inside. After a while you don't notice it and in any event the view compensates particularly from the gazebo where it is quiet. Owners Pam and Brian very helpful.
Restaurants: would recommend eat a Pita for coffe and lunch, Sips and Red Sky for dinner. Best water trip: Island Cruises from Bass Harbor.
Will return.

Great little place in a great location

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed at the Kingsleigh Inn before and this property is owned by the innkeepers from that place. The location is perfect. Great views of Southwest Harbor from windows, the deck and the new gazebo. It's off the main street but still close enough to the center of Southwest Harbor to walk everywhere. Kitchen has everything you need to cook meals if you're tired of eating out. Rooms are sized just right and the bathroom has a radiant heat floor and an infrared lamp for those chilly Maine mornings. This year we stayed for only a week. Next year maybe it'll be for two weeks.

From Michigan to Maine

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect cottage and location to sit back and relax, with great restaurants a walk away, a beautiful view of Southwest Harbor and wonderful, welcoming proprietors (Pamela and Bryan). From the moment we arrived, we knew we made the right choice. The Harbor Oasis is close to all that the MDI and Acadia Park offers, including hiking, kayaking and the more gorgeous scenic views of pink granite.

The kitchen was outfitted for as much cooking as we would like and everything was very clean (thanks Sabina). The new gazebo was great for evening cocktails. Both bedrooms were spacious; and the open floor plan with the kitchen and living area was bright.

Pamela and Bryan are experienced and friendly. They are obviously hard workers but make hosting visitors seem like a piece of cake. We would definitely return.

This is The area to be if you're interested in saying on the "Quiet Side." You might also want to check out the Kingsleigh Inn, right around the corner from the Harbor Oasis cottage.

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.
