It was great! With the Atlantic Ocean in the front yard and the little pond with trails in the back yard we spent all out time exploring. The kids caught frogs and hike along the back trails and all along the back shore without any worries. We had such privacy there, no bothersome neighbors, paece and quiet except the surf rolling us to sleep! What a nice vacation we had. We recommend Oceaside Retreat to all. Thank you for allowing us to rent you beautiful house.

About the owner: 'Oceanside Retreat' was built with a great deal of thought; taking advantage of the incredible views as well allowing it to fit the natural landscape & the historic shingled architecture of the island. My husband and I built this house with the intentions of renting it to you. We are so lucky to live here September to June that we'd like to share the beauty of this location, and pay our taxes more easily, with you. Ralph came to the island as a boy and spent summers on the island. Our family has been here for 4 generations. Our son and daughter-in-law and grandson Alistair return to the island from Austin, TX this Fall. Nate was brought up on the island,attended the Children's Workshop and elementary school. He'll introduce his 3 year to the island in 2013. We are very excited about another generation here. The island runs in folks blood! Ralph and I are lucky to live and work on the island. I used to commute into Portland for years but as of late I joined him in our real estate office as the rental agent. I do enjoy getting off the rock often! Ralph has been a broker on the island for 30 plus years. He gave up his office on Commercial Street a few years ago and now just concentrates on island property. We both belong to Brackett Methodist Church and are active in the Church as well as island activities. I'm taking ukulele lessons this winter, yoga and a weight class. Ralph plays tennis on the island in summer and off the island several times a week. We love walking into town for dinner, a movie or the museum. We love Peaks Island.
Why the Owner Chose Peaks Island:
This property is private and has ample front, side and back yards. The ocean view is the front view. The back side has the pond, frogs, birds and trails. There's woods to the side and along the trails. The porches and the decks allow for enjoyment of all these views. The 3 level house offers separation and privacy for our guests. Multiple baths are a plus on every floor as are both sets of washer and dryer on the top level and lower levels. It's a comfortable,family home not a museum, with tile floors throughout. The peacefulness and solitude provided by this property is a sure winner for a great vacation! Peaks is a 15-20 min. ferry ride from the city of Portland. The ferry schedule runs nearly on the hour till 11:30 pm at night in summer. Portland ranks as one of the top small cities in the US offering a full array of entertainment, dining, shopping and all within easy walking distance of the ferry terminal. Portland is just a two hour drive to downtown Boston and twenty min. ride to Freeport, home of LL Bean and other great shopping. Portland offers public transportation and an international airport.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Incredible natural ocean side beauty and private surroundings. The pond's stillness offers good birding and the peepers at night tell you stories before bedtime. EZ walk to town for an after dinner stroll to get an ice cream, or for the grocery store.
