About Lisa Ignaszak

We are a retired couple, Dan from social work and Lisa from IT. We moved to Rockland from southern Maine in 2014 with the intent to downsize. Instead we bought this beautiful historic 4 unit duplex and have been working off and on restoring this apartment with the intent to open it up for vacationers. We love to travel and know what it is like to find a home away from home, someplace so welcoming that you are instantly comfortable and ready to go off and explore without any worries. We sincerely hope that you feel that way when you walk in the door of this apartment. We are here to serve you!

What makes this apartment unique

The views from the apartment and the cool breezes off the water on a hot summer day are unbeatable. Watch boats launch, walk over the rocks or by road to Dick's beach, kayak, or even put your own boat in for a sail or cruise around this beautiful mid-coast Maine location.

Perfect spot for relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time staying in the heart of Rockland at this gem near the water. The view was spectacular and accommodations were top notch. It had everything needed for a family of 5 to function effectively. Children's museum and city center were within walking distance, even with young kids. Lighthouses and Lobster Shacks are nearby, within a few miles. Lisa and Dan (hosts) were the best, very accommodating to any questions we had about the city, activities, restaurants, etc. Highly recommend and plan on staying in this beaut again!

Beautiful home and awesome view

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in Lisa & Dan's rental! The home had everything we needed including A/C for an unseasonably warm week! We cooked most of our meals on the property & the kitchen was very well stocked. Rockland was our home base - we enjoyed the Lobster Festival, going on a sailing charter, visiting several local lighthouses, Bar Harbor and eating plenty of lobster! We highly recommend Lisa & Dan's home in Rockland!

Everything we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

The property has been newly renovated and had all of the amenities we had wished for :) We appreciated how clean everything was and all of the extra details (i.e. beach bag ready, wi-fi and movie channels, new washer & dryer, etc).

Having the park across the street was priceless for the kids to romp around. We will definitely be looking to stay here in the future :)

Beautiful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Our weekend away was wonderful, Lisa and Dan made us feel right at home. The home is decorated beautiful, and very comfortable for the 4 of us. Lisa gave us a little welcome gift of coffee and cookies from the local area. Everything down to beach chairs, lotion was in this home. Words cannot describe how we loved this place and the surrounding area of Rockland. We will be back, Iam hoping sooner rather then later. Go explore and stay here you won't want to leave. Lisa and Dan thanks for a great time, Great meeting you both and you too Paul.
