Maine is our favorite vacation destination, and finding the right vacation home in the right location for our family is very important to me. I worked with another agency for our last vacation and there were glitches in their system which complicated the payment process and other issues which I found to be frustrating. The reservation, contract and payment process with On the Water in Maine was easy and painless. Contact by phone and via email was easy and all interaction was professional and appreciated.
This rental was perfect for our multi-generational family (grandparents, parents and their children). My husband and I (grandparents) had the loft (3rd floor), which was large and spacious and easily accommodated our needs. I was especially appreciative of the very comfortable leather chair and ottoman situated by a large window which overlooked the beautiful ocean view. It was the perfect location to read or to sit in quiet reflection. The queen size bed was very comfortable, and screened windows allowed cool evening air and the sound of the ocean into the loft each night. Our two granddaughters (ages 8 and 3) shared a wonderful children's room with twin beds, while their parents each had a bedroom located in the same hall on the lower level (king bedroom for our daughter and son-in-law, and a double bedroom for our daughter) (1st floor). Both of these rooms overlooked the ocean and had direct access via sliding doors to the lower deck. In addition, we enjoyed the upper deck off the living room (2nd floor). The dining room with a very large table and benches allowed our entire family to enjoy meals and time together. We loved the direct ocean access to explore, the privacy and location, and the spaciousness of the home which was the perfect size for us.

Agency is excellent to deal with. Please note that Justin at 'On The Water' was very responsive, helpful and professional with regard to the the barking dogs issue.
Setting for this property is peaceful, the view is absolutely beautiful and overlooks the ocean with Norton island to the left. We enjoyed the sound of the water lapping against the rocks below. This house has big generous rooms throughout. The top floor has plenty of windows letting in the light and features ocean views from both the living room, dining room and loft. The first floor has 3 large bedrooms (2 with ocean views), and beds are comfortable. If additional sleeping space is needed, there is a bonus of a large loft area above the living room furnished with a couple of futons.
There is a new picnic table on the upper deck and a few wrought iron chairs (with no cushions), but more comfortable seating is needed in order to relax out there, we wished we brought chairs from home. The living room has a loveseat and sofa but the addition of a comfortable chair would have been nice. There is one TV but there is only basic cable service so TV stations are very limited....my husband missed out on the Red Sox for the whole week. Please ask owner to consider upgrading the cable service to include some type of sports/movie package at least.
Overall, this is a very nice property but the deal breaker is that the next door neighbor has 2 large dogs that barked loudly and frequently throughout the week and unfortunately, we found it challenging to relax and enjoy. This situation needs to be addressed before we would consider returning to this property. Please note that Justin at 'On The Water' was very responsive, helpful and professional with regard to the the barking dogs issue.
