Overview

Boothbay Condo Rental Photos and Description

Accommodations: 2 Bedrooms/2 Baths, Sleeps 4, VERY spacious, bright, convenient.

Townhouse condominium in a fantastic location, a beautiful relaxing and very spacious home for you to enjoy.

Over twenty VRBO 5-star ratings!

Year-round accommodation with easy door-front parking.

It is actually a large 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 2,500 sq. ft.+ home, but one suite is unavailable to renters.

Waterside location, with an easy stroll to the town wharfs, restaurants and stores.

Local amenities galore to make this your special vacation place.

Thank you for your interest in our home.

Although we live in England, our connection with Boothbay Harbor goes back a long way, more than thirty years, in fact!

We worked here as students, many decades ago, married and brought our three children back for frequent vacations over the years.

Spencer and Sam our older boys began their working lives in and around the Harbor...as busboys, waiters, barmen and their happiest employment as Camp Counsellors at YMCA Camp Knickerbocker!

Our youngest son Joshua has a learning disability/autism and he spent eight truly wonderful summers with his brothers at Camp.

We were fortunate enough to finally buy our own place in 2004 and regard Boothbay as our summer 'home'.

All the stuff there is ours... it is immaculate. It was completely remodelled a few years ago..new kitchen, new appliances, new bathrooms and mostly new furniture. The linens and towels are upgraded every two years, with the exception of the bed pillows which I buy new every year.

It's not your typical rental...............we close up fully for at least seven months a year and rentals are only available approximately ten weeks per year. Sorry....no children, no animals and no smokers.

You will enjoy the views from the deck and balcony..we have herons, osprey, ducks, shags and a multitude of wildlife visiting the water.

The small marina is a two minute stroll through the gardens. You can swim from the little rock beach (if you're very brave! We do all the time but then we're used to cool water!)

Town is a five minute walk away, with great restaurants and lovely diners.

If art is your passion, the town has some superb galleries to visit.

Take a sunset cruise around the islands, go whalewatching or take a sail on one of the antique windjammers!

Go fishing for striper, bluefish or mackerel.......even shark if you're very adventurous.

Golf at the now amazing local Country Club.

And of course.........

Eat Maine lobster inexpensively at the Lobstermans' Co- Op.

Why cook, when you can have takeaway seafood, burgers and fries at the 'soon to be world famous' Dunton's Doghouse............tell Gary we sent you!!..it's one minute walk away.

The nationally recognized Botanical Gardens are a must ........

Walk along the water's edge at Ocean Point and see (and hear) five lighthouses at once!

But most of all, do relax and enjoy our home.

About Maurice Healy

Hello

Welcome to our home. We are Valerie and Maurice Healy.

We grew up in Ireland, and now live in England........when we can't spend time in Boothbay!

We first discovered Boothbay Harbor in the 1970s when we were students, working many happy summers in the town. We just could not get enough!

As our family of three boys got older, we just had to re-establish our Boothbay connection, first renting, then buying this lovely property. Our home in Boothbay has been such an asset to our family life; our young adult sons truly look at Boothbay as their second home, not just a vacation place.

Maurice Healy purchased this condo in 2003

Why Maurice Healy chose Boothbay

It is so tranquil, yet convenient. Is at the water's edge, a short stroll to town shops and restaurants,

We did a full refurbishment just a few years ago including a very smart new kitchen and all new bathrooms and appliances.

It has a clean uncluttered feel to it, over 2,000 sq. feet for your use.......

We just love it!

What makes this condo unique

Mostly the peace and quiet of Maine.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We really enjoyed Boothaby Harbor. The stay at the condo was excellant. We say a lot of beautiful scenery and went whale watching and were lucky enough to see many whales. Food was wonderful. We got our fill of lobster."

We had a wonderful week staying at the Healy's beautiful, boothBay townhome - the property is just as pictured and better. The home is very clean and comfortable and provides plenty of room to stretch out and relax. The view off the deck was enjoyed many mornings over coffee as well as evenings over a cold beer or glass of wine. Upon our arrival we were greeted with a beautiful vase of fresh peonies and a nice bottle of wine - thank you Valerie and Maurice, very nice touch. We were on the go most of the week enjoying the Windjammer festival, the great selection of restaurants that are just a short walk into town (ate at Ports of Italy twice!) and we absolutely loved visiting the Botanical Gardens - it is a must do if you are in the area. While we have a lot of places to travel to on our bucket list, we think that Boothbay is a definite repeat! Thank you again M&V for sharing your fantastic property on VRBO!

We keep coming back

  • 5 of 5

This is about the fifth or sixth time we've stayed here & , when we arrive , we know why we keep returning . There's so much to see and do both locally and within an hour's drive . Good weather means we take any of a number of walks in the area which are set out by a Boothbay Harbor trust - poor weather means we go for a ride either to Freeport for the shops or to a local beauty spot . I can't find anything bad to say about the condo and its owners and will keep on returning .

We had a wonderful week staying at the Healy’s condo during the second week of October. Their condo is fully appointed throughout including the smallest detail down to heated towel bars in the bathrooms. We cooked several meals in the well-equipped kitchen; the open floor plan is inviting and welcoming with special views from all angles. The views of Mill Cove as the tides rise and fall provide a changing backdrop to watch the active wildlife and fall colors. We were thoroughly relaxed and felt like we were at home. A toast to the Healy’s with their welcoming gift of a bottle of Zinfadel. We enjoyed our stay so much that we reserved two weeks for next year.

Excellent Location -- Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we have stayed at Maurice and Valerie's condo. If you read other reviews, you will see that there are quite a few people who have made this their vacation place more than once. The reason for that is the professional and prompt response from the owners...the fantastic location...and a condo that has everything you need. It is very difficult to find parking in Boothbay Harbor, so the short walk to the center of town is a real plus! The four of us are seniors and two of us are not fond of walking. But this five minute walk is a delight because you view the harbor as you stroll into town.

If you've had a long day playing tourist, you have the choice of making dinner in their lovely fully stocked kitchen or heasing to the fro t of the complex and grabbing a bite to eat at Dunton's ... a little stand that offers sandwiches and seafood. Don't laugh, but after a few days of eatting lobster and scallops, his kielbasa sandwich is a nice change, plus you don't have to get in your car to get it.

The phrase "location, location, location" is the perfect way to sum up this two-bedroom / two-bath condo!! Oh...our friends could not believe how quiet and peaceful it was during the entire stay. We'll be back.

Beautiful relaxing vacation

  • 4 of 5

Very nice home-beautiful view. Maurice was very helpful and gave us some recommendations of things to see. We explored a lot of them and they were very nice. We went to Bath for the Maritime Museum, Freeport for shopping and then to Pemaquid Point and explored the light house as well as the historic fort nearby. Went to Owls Head and also saw the Maine Lighthouse Museum. All were well worth the time -took a couple water tours as well. Close enough to the shops in town that we walked. Everyone was very friendly.
