About Liz Pereira

Hello MDI Travelers! My name is Liz and my husband Andy and I purchased our lovely home in 2014 while living in Chicago. We rented it out the first season we owned it and then both had the opportunity to work from home, so we moved into it for two years! Work obligations brought us back to Chicago this year, but we are so happy that we can share our home again. We hope you enjoy your stay at Penny's Place!

Charming Cape Cod Home In Southwest Harbor, Close To Town, Bus And Acadia
average rating of 4.8333335 based on 6 reviews

Nice hide away in Southwest Harbor.

  • 4 of 5

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at Jody's Acres. The house is on a less touristy part of the island and is a short drive to Bar Harbor or the main parts of Acadia National Park. However, we enjoyed being away from the hustle and bustle. The house sits back in the woods on a short dirt road. Though there are neighbors nearby, we never heard any of them and it was like having our own little vacation house in the woods. The house was as advertised and has all the amenities we were looking for. The only downside to our stay was that there was apparently a large group that left the day we checked in. Unfortunately housekeeping hadn't had the time to wash and dry all the towels. They were courteous and left us a note explaining what had happened. The towels were clean and dry in the dryer so we just had to take the out and fold them. Overall not a big deal to us. If you're looking for a place away from the busy areas of Mt. Desert Island, this is it.

An amazing place to add more fun to the Acadia experience

  • 5 of 5

This is a really lovely place to live. You really get the feeling that you are part of the Acadia when you wake up and open the doors. It is in a place that is so quiet that I feel I forgot everything else! It contains everything one will ever need. During the night, we just went out to directly see the stars. To be honest, I haven't seen such a scene in years. It is so amazing!

The owners reply really fast and are very friendly! If we are going to go back to Acadia, we will definitely book this place again if available.

So if you have chance, just bring yourself to Acadia, and enjoy the amazing scenes!

What a lovely property!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of eight, and two of us had been to Maine before the rest were first timers. We very much enjoyed our stay. First time renting a house from Home Away. Great experience. Although the weather wasn’t on our side we made the best of it. The property is just as advertised. We would highly recommend this vacation home to anyone looking for a great "home away from home."

The home was very comfortable. The furnishings were fine with nice beds to sleep in. Bathrooms were nice. A comfy couch and chairs in the living room, dining room table and large kitchen. Towels and linens were provided although some of us brought our own just in case. We had access to mostly everything we needed and enjoy our time in Bar Harbor shopping and eating around town. I hadn’t been back to Bar Harbor in over 20 years so it was nice to see some of the shops were still there. New restaurants as well.

Bar Harbor plenty of food, shopping etc.. .. In Southwest Harbor we found the following places to eat which were great. Brandon & Laura's Café , Common Good Kitchen Café (delicious Popovers) and in Northeast Harbor we found The Colonel's Restaurant ... also very very good! IGA Southwest Food Mart Grocery for any food shopping needs.

The home owners are wonderful and very much in touch with you from the beginning to the end which I appreciate very much. All our questions were answered in a timely manner. Liz, Thank you for making our stay a wonderful one! We hope to be back sooner than later!

3 day trip to Maine

  • 5 of 5

Great place. Plenty of space and well equipped. We loved it here. Very quiet and conveniently located. The host was very responsive and we received all necessary information prior to our arrival including some recommendations for things to do in the area and where to eat. Overall a very pleasant experience :) Highly recommended.

Jody's Acres house review

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house located on a nice quiet road conveniently located just a few mile from Southwest Harbor. The house had all of the conveniences one would need while on vacation (exactly as advertised). The owner was a joy to work with and even offered to give us sight seeing/restaurant advice.

I would highly recommend this vacation home to anyone looking to explore Acadia.

Review for rental 3755868 - Acadia

  • 5 of 5

We had a really nice stay in the house - a perfect base for our visit to Acadia. The house was exactly as described and it was in a convenient and quiet location.

Our dialogue with the owner has been satisfying and we will by any doubt recommend the property to our friends.

We can recommend to go for some of the many trails - the best way to enjoy the nature and the fantastic views. Especially some of the more challenging trails around Echo Lake and Acadia Mountain.
