On the rocks-on an oceanfront cliff overloo… – vrbo gas in texas


If you have ever dreamed of living by the sea overlooking the ocean, this home is the ultimate Maine experience! A breathtaking panoramic view greets you as you enter the door. Three sliding doors lead to an oceanside deck with waves crashing below where you can enjoy AM coffee while watching lobster boats and gulls. Our house sits on the same granite cliff as the picturesque Pemaquid Point Lighthouse and has forever ocean views that you can enjoy safely from the comfort of the living room – especially a spectacular storm if you are lucky to be there to witness one! !!!

An ocean view window wall is in the master bedroom also. Watch the moonlight dance on the waves at night right from your bed! Awaken to sunrises over the ocean, and COOL northeast breezes direct from the sea. We are on the dramatic Atlantic Ocean side of the peninsula, not the calmer Bay side.

Stroll to the lighthouse along the Cliff Rd for a coffee/fresh-baked muffin at the Seagull Shop or in the evening for fabulous sunsets! Bring plenty of film. Photo opps galore! This is picture postcard Maine with fishing villages, harbors, and coves. The movie Time In A Bottle (Kevin Cosner) was filmed here.

Our contemporary home was designed and built by an architect for his personal retirement, but he became ill. We fell in love with the open light-filled plan with lofty cedar cathedral ceilings in ALL rooms, even the baths! Three sliders open to the ocean deck. High clerestory windows in the great room pull in even more ocean breezes and the large size room welcomes families. All rooms are on one floor. The well-equipped kitchen has a 4’x7′ eating island and abundant cabinets along 3 walls. Furnishings are Ethan Allen, and Pottery Barn. Our baths were redone 2010. Our home has an air exchange system for allergies, and we cannot take pets. See more photos below and info in our descriptions on the site. We rent by the week only, -no days. Maximum number of renters is 6, including children 10 or older.

Best of all, our location is a nature retreat on a private lane, back from the road noise and people walking by, perfect for building special memories, yet nearby are 2 restaurants within 1/2 mile, within 3 miles is a white quartz sand beach, within 5 miles, an intertidal preserve, well-stocked grocery, fresh lobster right off the boat at Shaw’s Lobster pound/restaurant, Boat Tours to puffins, seals, & Monhegan Island, historical fort, art galleries, antiques, kayaking, local crafts, etc. Quaint shops and restaurants are found in Damariscotta (15 miles), Wiscasset, Boothbay Harbor (45 min.). Further afield are the Owl’s Head Aeronautical Museum, the Wyeth Collection, Farnsworth Museum, Rockland (1 hour). Brochures are in the house with more to discover. Or you can unwind and do nothing – and enjoy living by the edge of the sea!

Good stuff first. We stayed here with my family as sort of a reunion. My Parents, my sister & spouse, my brother & spouse.The house only sleeps six and they are VERY firm about this. No squeezing people in on the couch.That being the case my husband and I stayed with relatives until my brother left (they were only with us part of the week) We moved over on Tuesday.The house is situated on a cliff and views of the ocean are stunning and the house is designed so that you are able to see the ocean from not only the living room(sliders that open onto a deck)but also the master bedroom. the sound of the waves crashing on the cliffs below is deafening. Spent mornings drinking coffee on the deck and If you are up early enough, you will be able to see Lobster boats pulling in traps right in front of you.At night with a glass of wine is even better. Coming home I can honestly say that I missed the sound of the waves very, very badly! We had the good fortune of spectacular weather (only one day of fog) and being able to view many sunrises and moon sets over the water, Gorgeous! I cannot stress enough how healing and magical it is. There is a wood burning fireplace (buy your own firewood) We took advantage of the fireplace on the foggy day and it was very relaxing to have a "stay in" day with a nice fire, it took the chill and the damp out and we enjoyed some old movies. One of the bedrooms has a small library with a nice selection of Books. I will recommend "Lighthouse Horrors" for some good old fashioned scary stories (Perfect reading for being in Maine on vacation with the sound of the waves in the background)The ocean is accessible by means of a steep path to the left of the house & there is a rope rigged up to assist you getting down to the cliffs,spent many hours just laying on the rocks and sunning & reading. Do not advise swimming here as the waves and the currents are too strong. Now the bad;The living room furniture needs updating. It is comfortable but worn.The dishwasher turns on at random,the dryer was not in good working order,TV is ancient &Flat screens are so cheap nowadays.No excuse not to update especially for over $2000.00 a week. The guest bedroom queen mattress needs replacement, old and probably one of the most uncomfortable mattresses my husband and I have ever slept & we traveled all over the world, (all of Europe) They need to update this mattress! Other then this id recommend this property.

Based on your wonderful review, you obviously enjoyed your "healing and magical" week! But to clarify your complaints – you rented our home for 4 adults and 0 children, and were informed that 6 was the maximum. Your arrival with extra family – 8 adults – and a tent camper concerned our manager. All the furniture, from Ethan Allen, Pottery Barn, and Beautyrest mattresses, were purchased only a few years ago -except for the Knoll design kitchen stools and the $2000 Norwegian Ekornes Stressless recliners, recently recovered, that you noted were comfortable. The new Bosch dishwasher, installed in June, is a little complex to understand, -that is why Specific Operating Instructions are posted above the washer. When notified of the clothes dryer malfunction, we immediately ordered another, and had it temporarily repaired, requiring only turning it off manually. The TV is in excellent condition, and will continue to be used since flat-screens have no over-riding qualities, except appearance. We have also traveled, and taught, all over the United States, Europe, and the Far East -from Norway to Japan, but we chose Maine for our retreat. Over the years, our renters have commented on our restful environment, living spaces, and bedrooms. We wish you luck finding a rental more to your liking next year.
