Beautiful, relaxing property close to town

  • 5 of 5

Jay's waterfront property is just beautiful! This was the perfect place to spend our honeymoon. The house was very spacious and we loved the open floor plan downstairs. The location was great as a central point for many kinds of exploring- we enjoyed the short bike ride into town, hiked in several preserves nearby, and put paddle boards in the water across the street. The huge front porch was a great place for sunny breakfasts, with an gorgeous view of the water. Jay was wonderful to rent from - we made a mistake about the dates we were renting and he was incredibly understanding and accommodating. Thank you, Jay! We hope to return to Vinalhaven again soon.

Fantastic location with stunning views and comfortable accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights in this beautiful home and loved every minute of it. The house is not far from the ferry by car and has great views from the deck, living room and bedroom. The kitchen was adequate for cooking. We made all of our meals at home. The place was clean and comfortable, with cable TV and heat if we wanted it. Jay was available to answer questions we had about the house. We would definitely stay again.

Very comfortable, and homey.

  • 5 of 5

This rental fit our wants to a tee. It was close to town, the ferry, and any place we wanted to discover on the island. We were very comfortable, and felt right at home . The view from the front deck was a great backdrop for sunning ourselves, happy hour, reading a book, or just relaxing. The owner Jay was very easy going, along with his brother Richard who lived across the road if we needed anything, like lobster which he provided for us fresh the sea. I would recommend this rental to my family,and friends. Jim Kidney, Berwick Maine

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful rental over 4th of July weekend and it is awesome! Close to the ferry terminal, close to downtown and close to the swimming quarry. It is spacious, brand new, spotless and has a huge deck for grilling, watching the boats, and entertaining! We love Vinalhaven and enjoyed fresh caught lobster, 4th of July parade, Vinalhaven band, fresh crab rolls after the parade, awesome local band (Richie's band) that played one night at the downtown restaurant/bar, swimming in the quarry, boating to Seal Island (saw puffins), saw a whale too! We also hiked up Tip Toe Mountain to see the fireworks going off on the main land (Thomaston, Camden, and more) -- gorgeous view! We had a fantastic time and will definitely spread the word and will come again real soon :)

An absolute gem!

  • 5 of 5

We were the first guests to enjoy this new vacation home and we did just that! We spent an incredible 4 day Memorial Day weekend here and it was just fantastic. Morning coffee on the great big deck watching the lobster boats and ferry pass by......and steaming lobsters there with a glass of wine at dinner. This is a wonderful place for a vacation and the house was just perfect! it's bright and airy and has lots of windows......plenty of room for everyone. Modern amenities and all the coastal charm you could ask for. On a scale of 1 -10.....we give it a 12.
