About Gibby

Honest, hard working, spend time in the winter down in Florida and Georgia. Love the summers in New England and try to get on my ATV as much as I can. My other business is online marketing to auto dealers. I enjoy meeting people and making new friends who come to Maine and who use my oceanfront cottage.

Gibby purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Gibby chose Mid-Coast & Islands

'The Moxie' is a gorgeous oceanfront cottage inside and out, beautiful surroundings, walk to town and very central to everything in Midcoast Maine. Only 1 hour to the Portland Jetport!

What makes this cottage unique

New construction in Maine has to be 70 feet in from the ocean. These newer cottages were grandfathered since previous structures were there at the turn of the century. Waking up to a water's edge view on top of rock ledge is really an amazing experience for our guests. This oceanfront cottage we call 'The Moxie' is really idealic for someone who truly wants to enjoy the best of Maine near everything and in super comfortable and upscale surroundings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Gibby & Lena,

It's exactly right for for meeting comfy, cozy and relaxation needs.

I loved the hazelnut coffee and used it up so i bought a replacement bag for you. Loved the little chocolates - nice touch. Too cute to eat though!

Maybe i'll enjoy your hospitable place someday again soon. All the best.

"The Moxie - what a fantastic location and peaceful vacation!"

My husband and sister and I just got home from a 3-night stay at Midcoast Rentals' "The Moxie" which was the cutest little water-front cabin in the Sheepscot Harbour Village Resort in Edgecomb, Maine at Davis Island.

Gibby and his wife have put together one of the cutest, cleanest, most welcoming rentals we have run across. The location could not have been better. There is a restaurant you can walk to right in the resort and you are just across a bridge from Wiscasset village and a quick 15-minute drive to Boothbay Harbor and less than 30 minutes from a wonderful beach at Pemaquid.

We had a truly wonderful time and I can't recommend this great little place enough. I'll put some pictures up on their facebook page when I get a chance.

Kids were bored

  • 2 of 5

This review may have been higher if we could have used the pool the one full day we were there. The pool was a must when traveling with kids, especially when it's rainy outside, but of course the one full day we were there the pool was closed, the kids were bored, and even I couldn't wait to get home.

Owner's Response: Hello Amanda, Very sorry to see you weren't happy with your stay. We never get these types of reviews. There isn't much open for kids in April up here and can understand kids being bored. July, August & September is when Maine is in full swing. I apologize for the pool. I was told it was open but the one day you got there apparently some type of repair was being made by the association. If you'd like to come back in the summer I will be happy to compensate you to some degree. Thank you. Gibby

Adorable cottage in Wiscasset area

  • 4 of 5

A very quaint cottage with beautiful views of the bay area and centrally located to getting into Wiscasset as well as time in Boothbay Harbor. The cottage had everything we needed for our short 2 night stay. The convection/toaster oven did not work and the owners were very attentive in replacing it within 2 hours of our arrival. The rooms are clean and very tastefully decorated. We loved the small porch to have coffee and look out over the water.

Best Vacation ever!

  • 4 of 5

This place is amazing! Has everything you need for a relaxing getaway... We had 4 adults and a baby and plenty of room. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook breakfast and lunch (except the food of course)! We ate dinners out. Slept in everyday! Cute little towns everywhere! Walk across the bridge and there are 3 great places to eat! Red's, Sarah's and Spragues... The pool was great (Hot tub is a little cold). Spa was superb! We will be back for sure! Thanks Gibby it was more than you promised!

Extraordinary view!

  • 5 of 5

What a surprise when we drove up to the "Moxie" cottage! It was adorable! The furnishings were very comfortable and all of your modern conviences were there for you. My children (7 and 10) loved the pool! There was also a Spa available too which was very tempting, but time didn't allow.

We walked over the foot bridge each day to Wiscassett to eat, shop and explore. Such cute, friendly towns surround it! The cottage is also in an excellent location. We took day trips to Camden and Poppham Beach State Park. We didn't want to leave, but know we will try to rent the "Moxie" again next year. We hope to get more relatives from Chicago to come back with us! It was a perfect getaway!
