"Hello All... Just wanted to give an accurate review, my opinion of course, of our family's stay in this home we choose to rent. If you are looking for a home to stay in this is the place. The amenities and the obvious consideration of our host were above and beyond. This home was clean and had the small extra's you experience in a hotel. Mary Jay was available if you needed her for something that you thought you may need on your vacation, even contacting us before we arrived. We took full advantage of the hot tub and the delightful garden in the back yard for fresh herbs and vegetable's. I will certainly book this home for my next visit. I was hoping to keep this home a secret but the word is already out! Mary jay is a great host without being intrusive. Thank you very much Mary Jay for your wonderful hospitality."

"We were here for my son's wedding. There are 6 adults and my little granddaughter. Even though I saw pictures of the rental before arrival but seeing it in person was absolutely breathtaking. The view and sound of the ocean was captivating! I could sit on the deck all night just listening to the wonderful sound of the ocean and feeling the ocean breeze. Although there are houses in close proximity; but it was very quiet at night. I brought along my dad who is in his 80's and it was easy for him to get up and down the stairs and he sat on the deck most of the time having the best time of his life!
The owner Mario called as soon as it was available to check in so we actually got in at 3 instead of 4, which was really wonderful since we got in town early and was kind of tired from driving.
The house has 3 parking spaces (not street parking). Most of us were able to walk down to the beach and Front Street without any problems but walking back up was hard for my elderly parents so my husband or my son would walk back up and get the car, drive down to pick them up not having to worry about looking for parking.
There are ample furnishings and utensils in the kitchen. Bathrooms were beautiful. When I expressed that I was a little concern about sheets and not enough towels, Mario was over within half an hour bringing us extra linens. It was easy to contact him with any concerns. I can tell he has a great personality and is easy to get along with.
The only thing is we didn't know how to use the washer/dryer combo but it was our problem. I would advise putting directions on the brand new appliance so it is more user friendly.
Overall, it was a great stay with excellent location.
Thank you Mario for sharing your beautiful beach house with us. It is probably the best vacation rental I've stayed in.
We will definitely rent it again if we are in the area."

"We spent a week at the end of August at this beautiful home. It is everything that it is advertised to be and MORE! My husband totally enjoyed the gourmet cookware, I enjoyed the kayak's and the swimming, and we both
enjoyed the fact that we could bring our Golden Retriever! Thank you to Becky and Warren for being so kind and generous. Becky sent me lots of information on activities in the area, but we hardly ever left the house and the lake! Maybe next time ...Sincerely S&B"

"This was our third and longest visit to Mt. Desert Island. We knew we wanted to stay in Southwest Harbor and I was delighted to find the one-bedroom Carriage House. It was the perfect space for two people. Very quiet, comfortable and well appointed. A great place to unwind from the stress of everyday life. The location is within walking distance of "downtown" Southwest Harbor and Flying Mountain trail head. Debbie (owner) was great to work with through the whole rental process and promptly responded to all inquires and questions. We would definitely stay here again!"
