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 Eastport

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.

Map

Eastport is an island in the Bay of Fundy with wonderful waterviews abounding. Take a stroll along the beach, pick sea glass and shells and watch a whale blow off in the water. Take a boat out whale watching. (50% off Jollybreeze whale watching with one week rentals). Explore historic downtown with many art galleries. Hike at Shackford State Park for excellent vistas. 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.

Wonderful place! Quiet and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our two day stay in this great apartment was a surprise 60th birthday present for my husband! We loved the place and the location near the water. Everything we needed, and then some, was provided. It was just great! Eastport was beautiful! We took a trip to Canada (only 40 minutes away) and visited St. Stephens and St. Andrews! Visited the island of Campobello, visited Franklin Roosevelt's summer home and drove to the lighthouse where we saw porpoises and, even, a whale!! My husband was so thrilled with everything! We'd do this again in a heartbeat!!

Pristine Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Joanne has made a lovely, high quality apartment attached to the main house and nestled behind the garage. Super for a couple, but can sleep 4. Suggest the name "Jolly Breeze" by the entry door. We expect to return in the future if Joanne will have us. Thank you for your detailed directions and apartment. The shared laundry facilities were real handy after a week of traveling. Thanks again, Carol and Joe

A Jolly Breeze of a stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay! Such a nice, clean, well-equiped apartment. Terrific quiet street with nice neighbors, a short walk to the beautiful views at Harris Point. This time I was able to see the eagle's nest from the Harris Point cabins - the juvenile has been trying to fledge, it has been fun to check daily. I had a marvelous day whale watching on the Jolly Breeze, the day was glorious, saw finback whales, seals, porpoises, eagles, topped off by delicious pea soup made by Joanne. Eastport is a wonderful town, and the Carneys are terrific hosts!

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
