About Ariane Cometa MD
Mark and I met as resident doctors in Portland in 1994. We bought "See-Air" to keep us connected with Maine, when we moved to Maryland for training purposes. We love and take very good care of her through gardening and care-taking friends on the island year round.
Ariane Cometa MD purchased this House in 2000
Why Ariane Cometa MD chose Peaks Island
This house is in a quiet location with easy access to the beautiful back shore rocky beaches as well as the Trefethen tennis, sailing club and beach. We have a beautiful big lot. The house has been enlarged and improved upon 3 times prior to our improvements and is a piece of artwork!
What makes this House unique
Lots of space for everyone. Very cozy but open and airy home. There are plenty of amenities of comfort. Walk to the shore for sunset cocktail or watch it from the porch. Grill on the deck or stroll into town for dinner and an ice cream. Peaks Island living is laid back with lots to do. Rent a bike and tool around the island. Picnic on the granite ledge of the back shore or the sands of Sandy Beach!

A comfortable home
This home worked very well for us. A quiet, lovely setting. The ample bedrooms and the very sweet mini "day" cottage gave everyone privacy and comfort. (note - the three bedrooms upstairs require navigating a bit of a tricky staircase). The kitchen and baths were just nicely remodeled. I shared with the owner that the pillows and protectors needed refreshing and she explained that we were the first renters of the season and that was on the list to upgrade. The hidden bonus is a very sweet meditation garden just across the road that is part of the property and enjoys a view of the water. We spent a couple of lovely happy hours there before dinner on the deck.
Perfect little spot for weekend getaway. Very well cared for cottage with lovely details. Directions were clear and caretaker was very helpful. Would definitely recommend to a friend.
Fun Wedding Weekend!
Very quaint house - loved the nooks and crannies. Would recommend that linens/towels be available as part of the house rental instead of an additional charge. The deck and front porch were great to sit on and visit with family.
Wonderful family vaction!
Perfect house for our party of 4 adults and 4 children. Close to everything on the island. Albert, the caretaker of the house, was very helpful. If we do return to Peaks next year, we plan on booking this house again.
SEE AIR is awesome!
We had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed the house. Having a yard to play in for the kids when we weren't at the beach or exploring is super helpful. The outdoor shower is fantastic, especially for cleaning salt water off of kids, so that you can then dry them off outside. My daughter loved the bungalow house," her apartment" and has asked me to build one for her at home. It's location is great, on the quieter side of the island, but two minutes from multiple swimming and tidepooling beaches. It fit the 8 of us with room to spare and we hope to rent it again next year.
Wonderful place to stay on Peaks
See-Air was just right for the 8 of us, the location is perfect and the back yard offered such nice privacy. We loved having an outdoor shower! It had everything we needed, except a washer/dryer, the clothes line came in very handy! Thank you for sharing your lovely island home with us, we hope to be back!
