The home was extremely well taken care of and very comfortable. The yard was lovely and private, we enjoyed the deck daily. Our only complaint was that the kitchen cupboards were over-filled with unnecessary dishes/glasses leaving us very little room to store groceries. No one could possibly use all the excess china and glassware stored in every nook and cranny of the kitchen!

Great Team! Enjoy working with them every year.
We had an amazing week! We love the house and it fits our family perfectly. There are so many favorite features that it is hard to name just one. I guess I would say the porch with those awesome windows. Perfect place for coffee and a book!

The accumulation of artifacts, books, owls, and household tools and kitchen gadgets gave us the appreciation of decades of family events here. We felt as comfortable as their family members might on an extended Thanksgiving vacation.
The sun room was fantastic. The landscaping was also a beautiful surprise. The separate guest quarters over the garage was a wonderful privacy feature for our visitors.

Our experience with the agency was excellent. When there was a glitch getting into the garage apartment, and the lack of A/C units, the staff were immediately receptive and fixed the problems. Courtesy and efficiency. I would not hesitate to recommend you.
At Waters Edge was a home away from home. There was nothing missing at all: from the binoculars and bird books to the fully equipped kitchen, we didnt need to look for anything more. Our entire family was delighted with the property and its magical essence.

Everyone has been so nice from the moment we started checking for property with your company. So happy they approved for our dog to be here.
We really cant say enough about the most perfect views from this house. Everything about the property was stunning. Plenty of room for our family inside and out. We have traveled every year with family but have never found views as perfect as these. The property was centrally located within driving to lots of shopping, restaurants, and site seeing.

Agency is great, there if you need them, but leave you alone if you dont.
At Waters Edge was fantastic, house had anything you needed! We loved sitting out on the porch, watching the birds and boats go by. The house is in a great location, tucked away down on the beach, but close to town for anything you need.

Stay was pretty good with a few mishaps. Our favorite things about Waters Edge was the location and the Sunroom. So beautiful to have breakfast in. Also, the whole layout of the house was fantastic.

This was a second year renting with On the Water in Maine, and it was a great experience. They are very helpful from start to finish ... they had property recommendations for us when we began our house search and were wonderfully helpful when it came to making slight shifts with our stay. We would recommend them to anyone looking for summer rentals in Maine!
We absolutely loved our stay this week at Water's Edge! The house was wonderful! Our favorite part was the location ... this was our first time renting in Owls Head, which we thought we were interested in, and now know we have found our favorite spot in Maine. The location of Water's Edge was perfect - in Owls Head, so quiet and on a small private beach, but only 5 minutes from Rockland for restaurants and shopping. The views were spectacular, and our kids (and dog) loved early mornings on the beach collecting shells and rocks.

We have worked with other agencies and have ALWAYS been disappointed. On the Water in Maine is an amazing company. The communication is always there. We even got weather alerts when there was an approaching thunder storm. Any question I had they were there to answer immediately. I wanted to send my wife flowers and they helped me line it up and she was so surprised when she walked in and saw them sitting on the counter waiting for her after a long drive from Massachusetts.
I cannot say enough about Waters Edge. The entire experience was first class. The location is perfect for families with children. The kids loved exploring the ocean for all the ocean creatures. We even saw harbor seals! The driveway is perfect size for the kids to ride their bikes. We were all able to have our own 'space', but be together at the same time and give the kids the independence they cherish. The sun porch was our nightly retreat after the kids went to bed. So relaxing! We can't wait till next year!

Ben and Nakia at the On the Water in Maine office---Thank you for holding our forwarded mail and notifying us when it arrived. Thank you also for Ben's help with the computer! The cleaners at Water's Edge do an excellent job!
Thank you for sharing your lovely, warm and beautifully decorated home with us. This was a second year for us to rent your home, and we hope to vacation there again next year. This is a perfect property for us to rent. The house is kept with loving care, and thoughfulness is displayed in all the details, from the kitchen with every cooking need meet to the reading materials. The grounds are beautiful with lovely flower beds and shrubs. The view is priceless! The addition of the air conditioners in the bedrooms was very much appreciated by us. I have asthma and sometimes it is difficult for me to sleep with the windows open. The air conditioners were a big help. The only suggestion that we would have for a change would be the addition of a second recliner or a more comfortable chair in the livingroom. But, that is just for personal reasons. My husband and I have arthritis, and the rockers are hard to relax in and the sofa is very soft and provides little support. However, all of the furniture is lovely. Your home is so organized and clean. Thank you again! Gloria and Harry

We had narrowed our choice of houses to two. I spoke to an OTWIM agent that knew both properties. We took his advice, based on our needs and could not have been more pleased with Water's Edge. This was our second time renting with OTWIM and we will continue to use your service for all of our Maine vacations.
You have a beautiful, comfortable home. The decor was exactly what you would expect to find in a coastal home. Thank you so much for allowing us to share it for a week. I fear if it were mine, I would never be able to leave! Our favorite feature was the location with access to beach area. Very comfortable/nicely decorated, Great views. Very convenient access to great restaurants.
