Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in this condo, and exploring the area. It was spacious and well appointed, and made an excellent home base for our family of four. We loved having the separate bedroom for our kids, and the fact that they had individual beds to sleep in was a plus. We split our time between enjoying Acadia and relaxing at the condo, and loved spreading out there. Thanks for providing such a wonderful rental!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as described. We loved that it had enough room for our 3 daughters to be in one room, and us in another, also enough room at the table and in the living room for us all together. The property was very well cared for and an excellent price for the week.

The kitchen had every utensil you could think of. We especially appreciated the high quality towels, camping chairs which we used at the beach, games and deck of cards for the one rainy day we had, and huge variety of tv channels.

We had fun going through the TONS of brochures provided and past guest books to help plan our days.

Location was perfect-walking distance to the laundromat and well-priced grocery store, short drive to a delicious ice cream place, short drive to the very nice town of Southwest Harbor, and short drive to Seawall and Echo Lake-places we frequented. Take a bit longer drive to the busier side of the island, Bar Harbor.

This was our first VRBO that we have used with the kids, and it was perfect. We would for sure stay here again!
