Lovely water-view, town vacation rental

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, and our teenage son, had a great vacation in this house. We already knew Rockland, and enjoyed being able to walk to the city center, with all its restaurants, shops, and the Farnsworth Museum. We like Amalfi's for dinner, and LuLu's on Oak street for ice-cream. We drove down to Port Clyde for a wonderful sea kayak trip. The house is neat, clean, very well equipped, and cosy. The wi-fi was very handy for researching day trips, and amusing the teenager. But the back porch just keeps pulling you out to stare at the view: there's always a boat leaving or a ferry returning, or gulls flocking around a fishing boat. There's a nice little town beach just across the grass. Oh, and the weather is perfect here, too. Warm and sunny, but not humid. An excellent vacation destination for anyone who wants a relaxing and independent trip.

Owner's Response: I felt my property would be perfect for vacationers and so did this guest. Being accessible to downtown, the small beach, restaurants, museums, shopping and a great view of the harbor just add to the cozy and clean duplex for all to enjoy.

A very welcoming property with harbour view

  • 5 of 5
A wonderfully comfortable and beautifully appointed semi-detached unit with every convenience. Especially appreciated the two bathrooms which made it suitable for sharing by two couples. (The pull-out couch in the livingroom was perfectly comfortable.) Spacious and attractive, the owners provided extra special touches throughout including books and tourist information and it was a warm haven from the vicious northeaster that blew in while we were there. Steps from Rockland Harbour with attractive boardwalk and loads of interesting and reasonable restaurants . . . not that we needed them as the kitchen was handsomely equipped. We would love to return one day.

Owner's Response: What a wonderful review and glad they found the property very comfortable for the 2 couples to share. It was great to see that they had no problem sleeping on the sleeper sofa which I did not think they would. When the sleeper sofa was bought new in 2012 we found out that the mattresses on new sofas are so much thicker and better than past years. Also, delighted to hear that they thought the restaurants in town reasonable in spite of having a nicely equipped kitchen they could use in the duplex. Yes, it really is only steps from the harbor which is just across the street and the ocean can be viewed from every room. Looking forward to their return one day.

PERFECT LOCATION/AWESOME VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
This place was immaculate! Attention to detail in every room, we wanted for nothing! Great weather, perfect view, in walking distance to everything you need. Frank and Joy thought of everything! We would love to come back! Rock City Cafe on Main St. is a must, also many beautiful lighthouses, Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Owners made sure we had a fabulous anniversary vacation! Thanks so much!!

Owner's Response: How amazing to hear that the anniversary couple thoroughly enjoyed their stay in Maine and loved staying in the weekly rental with everything it has to offer. Also, they found it's location in Rockland convenient to town and other parts of Maine. Who could ask for more. It is a good central location to tour the Maine coast and see all Rt. 1 has to offer (the duplex is about 1/3 mile off Rt. 1). Hope you check us out as this couple did for their anniversary vacation.

Five star property and location.

  • 5 of 5
An outstanding property directly across from the town's ocean side park which also enables a short scenic walk into town. Wonderful hosts and every amenity you could possibly ask for. Absolutely spotless, well maintained, lovely landscaping and furnished to a high standard. You will not be disappointed with this Rockland lodging.

Owner's Response: From the minute these guests entered the property it seems they were more than pleased--both inside and outside. The duplex really is extremely clean and lovely furnishings/bedding, etc. then to be able to view the ocean from the property (inside and outside) is a big bonus. It is so convenient to town and the park as well making this a perfect spot to come for a Maine vacation. We strive to make the landscaping beautiful with flowers all around and a small summer garden the guests can enjoy when veggies are in season. Those who come I feel will be truly happy they chose this property.

Great value for the money!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spend 6 weeks in Maine every summer so we know what represents good value in a rental . This apartment was clean, quiet, fully equipped and with a nice view of walkable Rockland and its scenic harbor. We were very happy with our 2 weeks stay. Rockland is a good choice as a base for exploring the mid Maine Coast. Owners Frank & Joy were helpful and friendly .

Owner's Response: These guest do come to Maine each year but the first time they have stayed in Rockland during their vacation. Not surprising they found Rockland a good location to explore the mid-coast and thought the rental was fully equipped, clean and a good value. Always nice to hear when someone is very happy staying.

Lovely Rockland Property with Caring Hosts

  • 5 of 5
Frank and Joy's lovely Rockland property was just a pleasure to come home to after a busy day of Maine sight-seeing. Just as previous posters have mentioned -- the place had everything a traveler could need. That is what distinguished it from many other rentals.

When we first arrived, my husband and I just kept wandering around from room to room in disbelief at how well designed, maintained, decorated and stocked the home was. Details such as a small flashlight next to your bedside table, extra toiletries, fresh flowers on the deck, tomatoes from their garden (which we made a yummy salsa out of) are just a few of the home's niceties!

Also, you can certainly skip making a stop at any Maine Vacation Information Booth as they have brochures, magazines, and travel articles galore. These proved very helpful and entertaining. I believe that Frank and Joy could teach a class on how to make your property a desirable rental.

Rockland itself is also a good location to base yourself as the midcoast is central to many sites. So stop clicking your mouse and choose this lovely rental if you plan to be in the Mid-coast Maine area.

Owner's Response: With these comments from our guests, we are truly happy they loved their week staying at the duplex and everything we have tried to do to make that happen. As stated, it really is a perfect spot to spend a week away from home and we believe anyone that comes here will feel that way any time of the year (it is rented weekly all thru the year). Please check us out.

A short walk downtown to the Lighthouse Museum and the Farnsworth Art Museum. Nearby is the Owls Head Transportation Museum. Also, in town and in nearby Camden you can take hourly and daily boat tours in the ocean or a dinner cruise. Across the street is a small beach for sunbathers/swimmers. Perfect spot to walk to the annual North Atlantic Blues Festival (7/14 - 7/15) and Lobster Festival (8/1 - 8/5); Friendship Sloop Days (7/19 - 7/21) all held in town. Nearby in Camden enjoy Camden Windjammer Festival (8/31-9/2). Those interested in antiques will enjoy the annual Maine Antique Festival in Union (8/11-8/12). Or you can just relax on the back deck and enjoy the ocean view while you grill out.
