"Cozy house. Plenty of space. Great view. Short walk to Pemaquid Lighthouse. Bar / restaurant a short walk up the road. Outdoor fire pit plus indoor fireplace for those rainy days. Firewood being included was a huge plus. Owner is a great guy and easy to work with. Highly recommended."

Beautiful views, private, relaxing and comfortable!
"This is a wonderful place to relax and get away from it all. The setting is very private and the views are fabulous! The photos do not capture the wonderful view from the kitchen/dining and living rooms. The sound of the ocean can be heard from every room in the house. The living areas were spacious and the house was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen and outdoor gas grill made it easy to make wonderful meals and enjoy the view at the same time. We especially enjoyed climbing on the rocks and watching the various birds, boats as well as the crashing waves. We had fabulous weather-- even the one storm was amazing to watch from the living room. Boat trips to Monhegan Island and to watch the puffins, as well as a day sail were easy from here. We really want to come back again! Thank you for sharing your special home!"

"Everything the other reviews say about Aquahela cottage is true. The house and beach are exactly as pictured in the photos. The location is stunningly beautiful and very private. The house is comfortable, clean and delightfully idiosyncratic, clearly built and decorated with love, not a sterile rental property.
There are lots of things to see in the area, though the place is so beautiful we spent many days lounging on the deck or lying in the grass next to the ocean. We visited the Pemaquid Lighthouse, kayaked in the Pemaquid harbor, checked out the old fort there, and found a hidden gem, the Verna nature preserve, where a trail through sweet-smelling woods leads to a true ocean coast, with huge rocks and crashing waves. There are many great seafood places, but if you want a change of pace (and you're up for an hour's drive and a splurge--not cheap) dinner at Tau Yuan in Brunswick is a unique experience. The food is superb, and unlike any Chinese food we've ever had in either San Francisco or New York City.
Laura was a pleasure to interact with. She is efficient, straightforward and gracious (she sent us a thank-you card with the return of our deposit!).
My partner and I stumbled on the cottage at the last minute, and still can't believe our luck--it was booked solid but someone had cancelled their reservation. We're planning to reserve a week next summer now!"

"We stayed here for the fall foliage in late September. This is a great location for us and the areas we wanted to visit. The cottage was clean and comfortable. Great kitchen since we bought back lobsters/seafood to cook. The only thing that was misleading is that you must clean the linens before you check out and also drive your trash to the dumpster that was 15 mins away. I figured that is what the cleaning fee would include that but it doesn't. Otherwise we had a great time! Thank you!"
