FANTASTIC PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5
Prima vista is a well maintained and conveniently located house in the heart of bar harbour. Stayed in October 2014 as family of 5 and Sean and April were excellent. The advice on restaurants, hikes, and things to do around MDI was awesome for a family travelling from Australia. Loved the house with plenty of space and every modern facility you could ask for. Excellent kitchen and deck, plenty of space for all of us and the kids loved the loft bed! Clean and modern styling makes Prima vista an awesome holiday rental. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back. Thanks Sean

Better than advertised!

  • 5 of 5
High quality amenities; beautifully equipped, great location (right downtown, walk to everything; restaurants, boating, etc.) Very comfortable and spacious. A Prima Vista accentuated all the great things about Bar Harbor. Close to Acadia National Park. It was very well maintained and had everything one would want in a rental unit. We would definitely recommend it to our friends or anyone wanting to enjoy all that coastal Maine has to offer. Definitely 5 stars!

"A Prima Vista" is a beautiful gem of a house.

"A Prima Vista" is a beautiful gem of a house.
  • 5 of 5
This is a very beautiful and comfortable home in which to stay. The house is tastefully decorated and has a soothing & restful feeling all throughout.

The house, both inside and out, is definitely well kept.

If you enjoy cooking, the kitchen has all modern appliances that make this task enjoyable.

The house is conveniently located near a major supermarket, the Post Office, restaurants, the Waterfront, and the shopping district, which is the heart of downtown Bar Harbor --- all of which are in walking distance.

I highly recommend Morning Glory, a small charming bakery located on Riddick Street, that has a scrumptious selection of sandwiches, breads, and sweet treats (all baked on the premises). It's about two blocks from "A Prima Vista." There are other bakeries/cafes in the immediate area but they had not yet opened for business at the time of my visit.

The owner of the property was thoughtful enough to contact me to make sure my transportation from the Bangor, ME airport to Bar Harbor had been arranged. Upon arrival, he again contacted me to make sure the house was in order, and it was. In addition, he was patient in answering my questions/concerns during the planning stages of my trip.

I thoroughly enjoyed every second of my stay at "A Prima Vista" and I'm looking forward to a return visit in the near future.

I give location of the house, the homeowner and the house itself a five star rating (it has already been recommended it to a co-worker who asked if I would stay there again).

Comfort, convenience and lots to do

  • 5 of 5
My girl friend and I stayed in this house and it was our first time in Bar Harbor. It was July 4th weekend. We were extremely delighted by the house and the overall surroundings. The owners have thought of everything to make you feel right at home. The bedrooms are spacious and very comfortable. The kitchen is big with all the appliances and tools necessary to make a gourmet meal for family and friends. And the deck is the place to be in the morning for a cup of coffee, in the afternoon with a glass of lemonade, or in the evening with a glass of wine. Comfort and convenience sums up the entire experience! The house is located on a quiet street but there is so much right within walking distance – a grocery store, bakeries and great restaurants. One of the best things we did was bike in Arcadia National Park (which was practically right out the front door). But you can also take a boat ride, kayak, and play tennis, swim, shop or hike. If you’re looking for relaxation in a clean and well appointed home, with lots to do during day and night – look no further. This is it!

Ideal vacation home - home away from home

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I and the 2 boys had a blast in Bar Harbor this summer. Biking Acadia! Whale watching! Jordon Pond House! We did it all! But the best was coming home each night to just a delightful space . The house is just perfect - lovely on the outside with great gardens. Inside is all classic charm. There are hand-hewn rustic beams and 19th century planking blended with understated modern amenities throughout. The elevated deck is just fantastic. We ate lobster dinners there and watched the stars at night. We never used the car. The street is quiet but close to the action…just the right combination. We played tennis at the Bar Harbor Club 2 blocks away and dined at McKays Public House , strolling home. This is more than just a rental property. The owners were amazing - very helpful, supportive and responsive. Our vacation time is precious to us…we spent it well at “A Prima Vista” Cottage.

Centrally located on a quiet street in the heart of Bar Harbor, a short stroll takes you everywhere – the bustling downtown, the waterfront and shore path, Frenchman’s Bay and sand bar, restaurants, pubs and shopping. Walk to the shopping center in minutes.

Rent your bike at the corner and pedal into the park or take a kayak tour minutes away. In the morning, have your coffee and pastry at the nearby bakeries and internet cafes. Or head to the Village Green where you can listen to a free evening concert or catch a movie at Reel Cinema.

Four masted schooners and whale watching junkets depart nearby, as well as other water based adventures and trips to outlying islands. Or simply dine on the water and watch the hustle and bustle before you stroll a few blocks home.

The town offers free shuttles all over Mount Deser Island with stops at all the major trailheads and attractions of Acadia, America’s 2nd most popular National Park. With 5 major routes, your party can split up, go their separate ways, and still meet up again at an agreed upon location.

At the end of town, trailheads lead into Acadia. Golf and tennis are at the edge of town. In short, no need for a car!
