We have rented through On the Water in Maine several times over the years. Every time has been a pleasure. Your site is easy to navigate and explore the homes. The availability calendars are so handy and always updated. Signing up to rent online is simple and straightforward. When I have reached out by email or phone, I have always had excellent service and follow up. The range of properties provides choices for all types of groups and varying budgets. Renting from On the Water, you can feel confident that the properties are exactly what you hope they will be based on photos and descriptions. Its so nice to know that you have someone to call if you have a problem or question. Also, the communication leading up to the rental is excellent and very helpful.
It is an amazing property. Being right on the water was so beautiful. The yard is very large, so you can enjoy the view, and its breathtaking. The home is modern and updated, and has so many comfortable living spaces. The kitchen and bathrooms are clearly new, so they include all of the desired amenities. Hard to pick a favorite feature, the home is so inviting and lovely. It was just my husband and I, and it was wonderful. But obviously for a family gathering or a couple families traveling together it would be ideal. There are plenty of bedrooms and lots of extra living space to spread out.

On the Water is professional and caring in its dealings with people renting their houses.
Candy's Cove is an idyllic spot. We love the peace and beauty that it generates. When you go on vacation, it usually takes a few days to unwind and be ready to vacate. At Candy's Cove this happens within hours. Looking at the ocean, the birds, the lobster boats, erases the stress of work, the drive.

We have been working with on the water in Maine since 2013 every year! We find booking very easy and when we have questions we get the answers we need quickly! We have never had an issue and we love searching on the website! We recommend On the water in Maine when anyone asks about a place to stay!
We have rented Candys Cove for multiple years. The property accommodations are perfect for our extended family. We love the view from the living room! We also enjoy building fires and having cocktails by the waters edge as the sun sets! The master bedroom is so relaxing and offers a retreat when time away from our guests is needed! We love being so close to Drift In beach where we can dig for sea glass! We enjoy walking to Marshall Point light and taking trips to Monhegan! The Dip Net provides a quick and easy snack when we just dont want to cook! This property meets all of our vacation needs! We actually stayed in June when our friends rented it at our suggestion!

Easy, professional, what can I say? We are on year 4 renting with OTWIM and will continue to rent from them in the future.
I will look no further than Candy's Cove Cottage! We have finally found THE ONE!! The house, the view, everything was just perfect! We especially loved our evenings around the fire pit. The house is well stocked and spacious. The view from the master bedroom cannot be beat, it was amazing. We will be back to Candy's Cove Cottage year after year!! A special thank you to the homeowners that share their properties with renters, we certainly wouldn't be able to enjoy anything like it without them!

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.

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!
