About Joanne Carney

Robert and I (Joanne) run a whale watching business on a Tall Ship in St. Andrews, NB. Just over one hour drive away from Eastport. See

Joanne Carney purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Joanne Carney chose Downeast and Acadia

We love our location for it's private setting, hillside views and proximity to the water. Eastport is a wonderful community full of artists, history and beauty. We also have a larger second rental recently listed: 4135787. You can rent both for a larger family group.

What makes this apartment unique

New construction with wood, slate and tile flooring and a private lower patio, back yard. Such a wonderfully quiet location without a sound at night. (dead end street). Some water view and treed backyard. Walk down the hill to the beach for beach combing during the day and watching the lighthouse lights in the evening. 50% whale watching tickets is Saint Andrews NB with one week stays.

My Harris Point home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for over 2 weeks at Joanne and Rob's apartment on Harris Point in Eastport. The place was super comfortable, much more spacious than the photos show. Fully equipped with clean, new fixtures. Access to a great laundry room. But the best part is the location, on a quiet street on Harris Point, you can walk to the point in a minute and enjoy lovely Bay views both east and west! It is about a 1.5 mile walk to town, very scenic. It became a ritual for me, walk to town for a pastry or lobster roll depending on time of day, then walk back. I had my two small dogs with me and and the yard was perfect. In fact I am back for a second stay, for a month this time, before I return home to California. Oh and I look forward to a trip on their whale watching boat, the Jolly Breeze, in July.

Cozy spot downeast

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful location in Eastport! This cottage is well equipped and comfortable. The perfect place for a getaway in this part of Maine. It had everything we needed and out 17 year old Maine Coon loved it. Easy drive to Campobello and Qouddy Head as well as the shops and restaurants in Eastport.

Quiet location

  • 4 of 5

The location is just as described, has all the amenities you would need for a stay. Bed was comfortable, ability to adjust heat if needed (was still quite chilly at night) and a private deck to hang out at the end of a day of hiking was great.

If I could have changed anything it would be the shower head, with long thick hair it was a challenge to get it rinsed properly.

If I was going to add anything it would be a dish drying rack for the kitchen and maybe a rug in the bedroom, the floors are wicked cold in the morning.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We take pride in the beauty and quiet of the area. Glad that you so enjoyed the hiking in our area and relaxing afterwards on the porch. Thank you also for the suggestions. We will add a small rug in the bedroom. I can see that it would be useful from October through May when the nights are cooler. Guests can always put it away from June to September when it would not be needed. We will also add a new drying rack rather than just the dish tray. So glad that the heat was plenty to keep you warm. The shower has a standard Mohen shower head. Not sure if it was a hose extension that you were suggesting? We could look into that. Hope you continue to enjoy your Maine hiking adventures on the rest of your vacation. Joanne

Very well taken care of. Close to town but quiet location. View of the bay in all her glory. Will hopefully be able to return to same rental.

Property was as described.

  • 5 of 5

Our arrival instructions were clear and we had no trouble finding the property or getting settled. The apartment is just as it is described in the advertisement. It was clean, safe and comfortable. It is unbelievably quiet in this area. No traffic, no parties, private and serene....just the occasional bird and fog horn. The bed is a reasonably comfortable queen. We never ran out of water while showering but there was not enough hot water to take a bath, although there is a tub. The washer and dryer came in very handy and are in good condition. There is no air conditioning and it was sticky and warm, a couple of the evenings. There is a fan. The kitchen could use a lobster pot but otherwise has everything you need. We did not use the grill but there is a nice deck and bbq available for your use. We loved Eastport. The area is a bit depressed economically but the people are friendly and it has a small town, welcoming atmosphere. I don't believe it was advertised as having cable tv but we were happy to find that basic cable was available, as was wireless internet. We enjoyed this VRBO as a base for exploring the area. I would recommend it. The owners also run a whale watching business in St. Andrew NB. It is about 1 1/2 hours away but worth the trip. Make a day of it and visit Minister's Island and explore St. Andrew. We did the tall ship whale watching adventure and would highly recommend it. (they do offer Zodiac jet boat trip option) It was about 4 hours long and so much fun. It exceeded our expectations in every way.

A Great Place to Stay NE Maine & SE Canada!!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, let me say that this apartment is the MOST completely equipped

self-catering accommodation that we have ever had the pleasure to stay in!

Need a pencil, scotch tape, cup of coffee, an emergency supper? Fear not,

it's all there! And the nicest pots, pans and dishware ever! And right at the

door parking and your pup is welcome, too!

And a special added attraction is the tall ship whale watching excursion over

in St. Andrew,B.C. Canada also owned by the Carney's, at a special BOGO

rate for guests staying 7 nights or more! A marvelous experience, but do not

forget your passport!

The apartment is immaculate, the kitchen and bathroom are very functional and

a very big TV takes care of one's leisure time.

Catch of view of the Bald Eagles soaring on the wind currents out the back porch. Fire up the BBQ and relax on the back deck. Many festivals including the largest pirate festival on the East Coast! Take a day trip on the ferries over to Deer Island and Campobello Island to visit the picturesque lighthouses and Roosevelt's summer home.
