I like working with On the Water in Maine! They are concerned about guest experience, and were very responsive during booking and during the time we were at the house.
Based on the photos on the website, we had high expectations of this house--and it went beyond those expectations! In a wonderful oceanside setting, the house is spacious, clean, and comfortable. We loved having so many bedrooms and bathrooms. Because we had more than usual rain, we didn't spend as much time outside as we anticipated, but we settled into the living room that has great water views. The only thing that prospective renters should be aware of is that the area is limited in dining and activity options. This is a great property if you want to spend time at the house, beach, and in a hammock or playing lawn games. But if you're looking for many options to be out and about in the surrounding area, you'll be spending time driving.

This is the most efficient & friendly agency I have dealt with. Every person that I spoke with was friendly & knowledgeable. Kudos to the entire staff, a pleasure to do business with!!
This is a beautifully appointed & generously supplied "cottage" The pantry, with its attention to detail, made it easy to enjoy meals both inside & out The fire pit was a treat that we made use of every day. The vistas were appreciated thru most every window. The beach front, even though rocky, gave us fabulous finds of beach glass.

On the Water in Maine is a high-end vacation service we've enjoyed using for many years and we will keep coming back.
We love the open downstairs of the house and how you can see the bay from every window on the back side of the house. There are many spacious bedrooms and bathrooms and it's luxurious living there!

From the beginning of our rental to the end, everything was communicated to us in a very pleasant and friendly manner.
This was our first time to Maine and the first time using On the Water in Maine for a rental. We saw the pictures that were posted for Candys Cove, but until you actually see the house and the neighborhood you're not really sure what you're actually getting. WOW is what we all said. The house is beautifully! We love the extremely large bay windows in the family room/living room. The view is great. Plenty of room for activities and sleeping. We really enjoyed our rental!

As always, everything went easily and smoothly. There might be a better agency somewhere, but we doubt it. We have never come across a team that is as well organized, efficient and friendly. It is a great pleasure to have worked with you for five seasons, and we would not dream of trying anyone else.
Candy's Cove is a comfortable, welcoming place with outstanding views. All our friends felt comfortable and happy, and we did, too.
