Kendall Apartment is a sunny, spacious, private efficiency apartment which is tastefully decorated by its artists owners and surrounded by lovely flower and vegetable gardens. The apt. space is divided into two rooms, one with a queen size bed with sitting area and small desk and the other is a fully equipped kitchen. Large glass doors open to a private deck with a table for outside dining and a small yard with lounge chairs. Situated a short distance from the the village, it is a quiet setting to unwind and relax. This is not an ocean front accommodation but Its just a short walk to the hiking trails, shore, cliffs and spectacular sunsets. WIFI available. Well-behaved pets are welcome. Rented weekly, with changeovers on Saturdays during high season. A very special get a away for writers and artists and for anyone that wants to unwind and relax.
The Kendall apartment is a cozy, well -located studio apartment on Monhegan. The online descriptions were accurate other than the place was dusty. I do not think the previous guests cleaned the apartment before they left. The apartment is adjoined to a larger rental space and you can hear your neighbors clearly. It was great when the people next door weren't in but in the evening the normal noise was distracting.
If you don't mind this, the place is great!
We rented Magnolia house and the attached Kendall apt. in June! It was perfect for a family gathering of 10 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs! The house was well equipped, comfortable and our 5 year old loved the playhouse and toys.
Our only disappointment was that the home is advertised as having a washing machine but it appeared seldom used (dirty) and was not even hooked up in the basement. We had counted on this convenience as our daughter has a newborn in cloth diapers...... We were able to use the laundry mat in town, but the change machine wasn't working and it was hard to get enough quarters to do a load. Please remove the washing machine from the home information if it isn't really available.
Monhegan is beautiful and the Magnolia House it great! My review would be 5 stars if the washer worked. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
My boyfriend and I spent a week at Kendall Apartment with our Golden Retreiver, and it could not have been more perfect. The apartment is in an ideal location between the ferry dock, "town center" and the Monhegan Brewing Company and Lobster Cove. We arrived to a very clean, comfy space with the special touch of flowers from the beautiful yard arranged on the kitchen table. We enjoyed spending time on the deck, and used the kitchen to prepare most meals. The kitchen was missing a cheese grater, and we notified the owner who responded immediately to let us know he would add one to the inventory on his next trip to the island. There was a family staying in the main portion of the house, and we still felt comfortable in our own private space. Be prepared to bring sheets, towels, and food staples if you plan to cook in the house. You can purchase perishable items at the store on the island, and we purchased fresh fish at the Fish Market on Fish Beach (wonderful!!) every day. Also be prepared to clean the house before you leave as there are not enough workers on the island to cover all of the rental cleaning in the summer. This was not a problem for us, and only took 45 minutes to clean the space well before catching the 10:15 ferry back to New Harbor. During our week, we hiked all of the island trails (they are rugged in parts, but the beauty is indescribable), practiced Yoga daily at the Monhegan Wellness Center, enjoyed happy hour on the Kendall Apartment deck every afternoon, and walked to the lighthouse to take in amazing sunsets. We also toured many of the artist studios on the island, and had a great time at the July 4 party (with live music) at Monhegan Brewing Company. I also recommend bringing hiking boots or sturdy shoes, bug spray, liquor if you drink it (you can purchase beer and wine on island). Although the tap water is potable (and I always drink tap water), the island tap water doesn't taste good - we purchased water from the store. A final note from our dog, who enjoyed his stay more than us...he loved the apartment, the island, and became quite popular during our week stay. Bringing a dog who is well socialized and well behaved is a great way to meet people while on vacation. He went everywhere with us on the island, including hiking and inside some of the stores and galleries. We will be back to Monhegan, and when we return we will stay at Kendall Apartment!!
We arrived on the island having never been before. A short walk from the dock, we were pleased to finally (we'd been dreaming about this vacation for three months!) see Kendall Apartment. Beautiful wild flowers adorn the yard, and the patio and surrounding yard is as private as mentioned. This apartment is truly bright and sunny. The kitchen and living area is perfect for two. We stocked a large cooler with Trader Joe's treats and had most meals on the deck, watching the Monarch butterflies. Within a day or two, it felt like home.
Location, location, location. Kendall Apartment is conveniently located near Lobster Cove (see it!), The Black Duck (try their pie!) and The Novelty (delicious ice cream; get there before it closes at 8 PM!). Just up the hill from The Novelty is a perfect spot for watching the sunset... and star gazing. We saw numerous shooting stars! If you're an early riser (or even if you're not), be sure to take the Burnthead Trail out to the cliffs for the sunrise. We were also charmed by the colorful chickens in the front yard of the house across the street (their eggs are for sale at Carina).
It was a pleasure to rent this apartment from Dyan and we would definitely recommend it!
I hate to give away the best kept secret on Monhegan, but I feel I need to share so others can enjoy...I stayed in many private home rental properties on Monhegan, and this one was the very best of all. The apartment is clean and clutter free. I did not feel like I was living in someone elses house, and they were going to come home any minute. The bed was so very comfortable. The kitchen and bath were spotless clean. Fresh cut flowers from the garden always there at my arrival on the kitchen table.The feeling of this apartment is very serene and pleasant. The back deck was my most favorite spot...warm, cozy, sunny, and watching the birds eat from the feeder was amazing. Walk to Lobster cove in 2 minutes. Walk to Fish beach in 5 minutes. The owners take good care of the property and their guests. 5 stars.
We have stayed at Kendall Apartment many times and it always feels like home. It is one of the only rare properties on Monhegan that will allow dogs, and our yellow Lab enjoyed his visit as much as we did. Dyan is always so gracious and thoughtful-- fresh flowers from the garden are arranged in the rooms when we arrive and everything awaits us. The bed is super comfy, and though the apartment is just 1 BR it always manages to feel open, roomy, and airy. We go during the bird migration and Dyan's trees host a number of fantastic sightings right outside the porch or kitchen windows-- we've seen dozens of Scarlet Tanagers, Bob-O-Links, Indigo Buntings, Baltimore Orioles and countless beautiful warblers without even leaving the property!
Beautiful cliffs & woods, spectacular sunsets over the bay, miles of trails, a charming village, artists studios and galleries, gift shops & restaurants are just a few attractions of this small island.
