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.

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.

Our Rockland Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family's stay at the cottage was wonderful. It is so comfortable and skillfully decorated, with tremendous attention to detail. Every morning, we woke up to a sparkling view of the harbor and fresh smell of the ocean. Furthermore, Joy and Frank couldn't have been more welcoming. Many thanks for a great vacation.

Owner's Response: It was great reading that our guest really enjoyed their stay at the rental property--inside and outside. If you are looking for a clean and comfortable stay on the mid coast with a wonderful view of the harbor and close to town you can never go wrong staying in the duplex as the guest stated.

A Perfect Place to Vacation In Maine

  • 5 of 5
This is the second year that we have stayed in Rockland, Maine, at Joy and Frank Gifford's attractive and user-friendly rental property, wi-fi included! Their location is perfect; a short (walking) distance from town, restaurants, the beach, but far enough away from hustle and bustle, making it quiet and peaceful. The house is equipped with "everything"! They have left nothing out. We had never stayed in a rental property prior to last year's visit, but after staying here, we will certainly entertain the idea of coming back and checking Home Away for other location.

The duplex is exceptionally clean with updated appliances, plumbing, and is very well maintained. Joy and Frank are wonderful hosts who have missed no opportunity to provide a pleasant "home away from home" feel to their property. They are friendly and helpful regarding activities around the area and knowledgeable about other activities in their State. We visited the Farnsworth Art Museum, the quaint towns of Rockport and Camden in addition to Rockland, spent time at LL Bean's in Freeport, as well as Wolfe's Neck Woods State Park. Mealtime is always exciting as there are great restaurants scattered throughout all the nearby towns. Shopping is a treat, too, at the many cute and unique shops. We visited Owls Head State Park and lighthouse and the Rockland Light on the breakwater; had lobster from Jess's Seafood Market, and generally had a memorable time visiting with many neighbors and, especially, Joy and Frank. The many hiking paths are an additional benefit for those wanting to keep fit, especially after the great food which abounds along the coast, especially seafood!

Photography buffs will especially enjoy the many harbor scenes both from the shore or the many "offshore" opportunities from the many available harbor boat trips. The Vinalhaven ferry sail was especially memorable and a photographer's dream with so many old and new sailboats and motor craft!

Our entire family loved this area, the people, the activities, the food, and generally the Maine shore. We would certainly recommend this duplex to others and will be going back next year with a hope to continue for years to come.

Thank you Frank and Joy for providing a super place to immerse ourselves in your wonderful state.

Owner's Response: What a great review of the Rockland duplex rental. They left nothing out and were totally happy with the property and all it provided (which is just about everything but food) plus the surrounding area and the abundance of things to see and do; however, if you want to relax on the back porch and do nothing that is just as rewarding. We now have an awning on the back deck if you want to let out and don't want the sun to shine on the porch or if there is just a light rain and you want to sit outside.

We were extremely happy that they want to return and look forward to having another repeat guest.

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.
