Great all around, though still smarting from the 2020 cancelation fees. Most places waived fees. You did not.
We loved our multi-week stay at this beautiful property, which it's safe to say was the nicest, most well-equipped rental home we've stayed in. The Highlights include:
1) Spectacular location just outside the wonderful town of Belfast
2) Built in 2016 and impeccably maintained
3) Comfortable beds in every room
4) Huge deck with lovely views
5) Incredibly well-equipped kitchen. I'm a cook, and when renting a home I usually bring some of my own "essentials" because you don't know what you'll be working with. This kitchen had just about everything, including All-Clad pans, top-quality blender, mixer, food processor, cutting boards, even some decent knives. Everything but an instant-read thermometer.
I would look forward to staying here again and would highly recommend this property, but anybody considering it should be aware of three things before booking:
1) With the exception of the two bedrooms and bath on the basement level, this home has no doors. If you have a group or family, and some people want to stay up chatting or watching TV while others retire to the master bedroom or loft bedroom, that could be a challenge, noise and light-wise.
2) Every room as windows that face east (which is wonderful), but there are no shades, and the curtains don't fully cover the windows. On clear summer mornings, the sun bursts into your room between 4:30-5:00am, and there's nothing you can do about that. The sunrises are beautiful, but you need to either be an early riser, or somebody who can sleep through that.
3) Eco Vista has great water views, but it's not on the water. It's across the street, and if you want to actually walk on a beach or dip a toe in, you have to walk up the street a bit.
Again, these are things worth knowing to ensure you've selected the right rental for you.

It was hard to return to reality after the most relaxing vacation imaginable. Words cannot express the beauty that we encountered with every visit to the huge wrap around deck, overlooking the water and nature . The fresh air rocked us to sleep night after night. Our mornings consisted of visits from deer's that would pose for photos. Our stay consisted of 3 generations & we felt so fortunate to have the opportunity to reconnect in this magnificent home. The description of the property is exact & the condition was immaculate. This home by far has been the best rental we have stayed at, home was very clean and fully stocked. This location forces you to sit back & remember what's important in life...good company & the beauty of nature at its best! This was simply a one of a kind vacation that I would recommend to anyone wanting to get away from it all

Town Info - Bayside Village, Northport, Belfast, & Stockton Springs
Really two towns (legally) - Belfast and Northport are neighbors, and then Bayside is located inside of the town of Northport. While only a short distance from coastal Route 1, Bayside remains a well-kept secret; a small hamlet that takes one back to a simpler, uncomplicated time. A few years back, DownEast Magazine did a great article on Bayside that is still mostly relevant today. Click HE...
