One Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5

It was nice to sit back and enjoy the ocean views! The house is as beautiful as the views and large enough to accommodate my extended family. It had a big yard to play with the little ones and the beach is at the property's edge. The location was perfect to see all the local sites and close to fantastic restaurants. The owner's were friendly and welcoming. My family and I had a great time. We would have loved to stay longer.

Fantastic Location, View & Home

  • 5 of 5

It was a beautiful Victorian home on a cove with a virtually private beach. The setup and attention to detail was excellent. Alex and his wife were great hosts. There was absolutely nothing to complain about. The beds were as comfortable as could be. It was just like sleeping in our owns beds. We read the reviews with comments about street noise from Route 1, but really it was a minor point. It quieted down during sleeping hours. If you closed the windows and put the AC on along with the white noise machine they provide in every bedroom it was fine. It had a full size grill, a nice deck and wrap around porch with furniture to make the most of the beautiful bay and island views. All while you enjoy the beautiful fresh ocean air. Talk about convenient, 5 minutes to Rockland. Five minutest to Rockport and just five minutes to the jewel of the Maine coast, Camden. Whether you want beaches, hiking, stunning panoramic views, light houses, picturesque harbors or quintessential seaport villages and towns this area has it all! I would highly recommend the Irish Rose Victorian house.
