Lovely water-view, town vacation rental

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.

First class home-away-from home!

We visit Rockland a few times a year to spend time with family and this was our first time staying at this property; but now we hope that whenever we visit, this WONDERFUL property will be available!
We’ve stayed at many vacation rentals both in the U.S. and Europe and this is by far one of THE BEST on our list. The pictures (which don’t do the property justice!) and description are accurate; however, they can’t possibly encompass every wonderful detail and amenity about this home.
Frank and Joy thought of everything possible to make you feel not only welcome and comfortable, but like a special friend staying in their home. The duplex is ideally situated on Mid-coast Maine, with wonderful views of Rockland Harbor, and is immaculately clean and maintained. Even during a very cold and snowy January visit (thanks for shoveling, Frank!) this lovely home-away-from-home duplex was everything we hoped for and then some!
We enjoyed cooking dinner in the well-equipped kitchen for our son, daughter-in-law, and 2-1/2 year old grandson, who loved the provided toys, books, and DVDs. Our grandson also spent a different afternoon with us, napping in the toddler bed he proclaimed, “his” the very first time he saw it.
Thanks again, Frank & Joy, we thoroughly enjoyed staying at your wonderful property and look forward to returning later this year!
Owner's Response: What a wonderful review and one of the first times a family has stayed during the winter (our first year of renting in the winter, by the way). We have tried to do our best to make the duplex a home away from home for all who come no matter what time of year. Even though people seem to say we have thought of everything, each year we will add new and better things both inside and outside to make it even better for the next year. We want people to enjoy staying here and want them to return the next time they come to Rockland and the mid-coast area.

Charming, Beautiful Views, Excellent Location

This was our first visit to Maine and we were glad we came. The house is well organized, comfortable and spotlessly clean. It was well beyond what you would expect in any vacation rental. There wasn’t a single scenario that came up where we didn’t have the tool, product, accessory at hand. It’s something I have never really thought about before, but it really makes a difference.

The view from the kitchen and patio is fantastic. You have a great view of the water, and in fact, the picture doesn’t really do it justice.

The location is great too. You can easily walk into downtown, where there are many restaurants, cafes and bars. There are also good grocery stores that are a short drive away.

There is plenty of things to do in Maine and we managed to strike a nice balance between day trip out and about, such as going to Acadia, and trips closer to home like checking out the light houses, museums and boat trips.

We would recommend this to anyone.

Owner's Response: What a great review and how can I add to that but I will try. As stated by the guest, we tried to think of everything when equipping the duplex for each person staying--adults and children as well. Really you only have to bring your personal items and buy food when you rent this property.

Then you can view the ocean from every room but the back porch/deck is wonderful where you have that panoramic view of the harbor. In the late Spring, Summer and Fall relax in the chaise lounge or just sit around the table and have a cook-out and enjoy the view from the back porch. Currently, the duplex is available during the Winter and you can sit at the kitchen bar/counter and view the harbor as well--along with snow I might add.

So if you have a desire to come to Maine, please check this property out. I don't think you will be disappointed -- if anything it is better than the pictures.

Absolutely wonderful!

This was by far the best place I have ever rented for vacation off of the vacation websites. Frank and Joy have thought of everything one might need on vacation. The duplex is very comfortable, has beautiful views of Rockland Harbor, and is in a very quiet area of Rockland with very little traffic but still close to the downtown area. We were surprised to see Frank and Joy had left a gift card to Archers on the Pier restaurant. Very good food, great scenery and just a stones throw away from the duplex. We loved sitting on the back porch drinking coffee and watching the harbor. This area is a great location to explore the Maine coast. We traveled to Acadia National Park, Campobello(Franklin Roosevelt's summer home) in Canada, and Mount Desert Island to the North and to the south, Boothbay Harbor, Freeport, and Bailey's Island. We can't wait to come back to Rockland again and stay at Frank and Joy's rental.
Owner's Response: It was great hearing that the guests from Florida found Maine just a wonderful place to vacation and the duplex rental a perfect place for them to stay. We feel that our property is in an ideal spot for Rockland and the Maine mid-coast region although not too far from Campobello in Canada for a long day trip.

Exceptional Value

Clean fresh bright with a welcoming "at home appeal" the decor was fist class with a touch of class in all the little details.
The house could not have been in a better location for day tripping the Maine coast. We got to chase foliage, shop, eat lobster, sail, and take in all the fall festivities at the museums. These folks help you get the most out of your visit as well as provide first class accommodations.
Owner's Response: Began first renting in the Summer/Fall of 2012, and added a few new things for year 2013 rentals to make it even better for our guests. I was delighted to see that our guests felt like they were provided first class accommodations while staying at the duplex. I have tried to include many extras that may not be included in most weekly rentals--like k-cups for the Keurig Machine, lots of movies, games, puzzles and music if it is a rainy day, toys for the children--all in a wonderful location at a great price.

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.
