Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday condo in Southwest Harbor - Midships at Windward Shores

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6

New for 2013 - Hot Tub!!

Come and enjoy the luxury accommodations and spectacular, unparalleled views of Southwest Harbor at 'Midships' at Windward Shores. Windward Shores is an exclusive 3 unit condominium enviably situated at the head of the harbor on the shores of Southwest Harbor. But don't shy away because of the word 'condo', this is no cookie-cutter condo! Windward Shores is not part of a larger complex. It is just one custom built waterfront property in a quiet residential neighborhood, with a homey, cottage feel. 'Midships' is the largest of the 3 condos boasting 3 levels, floor to ceiling windows, private patio, deck, sloping lawns, and private dock.

From the gleaming hardwood floors and spiral wooden staircase to the granite countertops and tiled doubled-headed master shower, it's the attention to detail that make 'Midships' a cut above the rest.

With truly breathtaking views from any of the three levels at 'Midships' as well as from the deck and private master patio with hot tub, you're ever close the the ocean. Closer still, step out to the sloping lawn, where you'll find seating and a Chiminea (outdoor fireplace or 'firepot') just above the shoreline and access to Windward Shores own private dock, all right in front of you!

Attention to Detail: As you walk into 'Midships' main level, you are consumed by panoramic views of the harbor. The open floor plan of this level allows you to soak in the views whether you're cooking in the kitchen, relaxing in the sitting area or dining at the table with family and friends. The fully appointed kitchen has gorgeous granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, including a double oven, cook top stove, refrigerator with water/ice dispenser and a built in microwave. Take the spiral staircase to the upper level and find a great spot for watching the activity of the harbor, enjoying cable on the flat screen HDTV, or curling up with a good book. This level also offers a bedroom with double bed.

In the lower level you'll find the master bedroom with hot tub on private patio overlooking the harbor, tiled master bath with double-headed shower, a second bedroom with twin bunk beds, and another bathroom with tub and shower. Plenty of room to spread out!

Away from the Crowds, Close to Everything!: Situated on the 'quiet side' of the island, you can enjoy the real Downeast Maine away from the crowds, but still be within minutes of world-famous Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. You can explore all that the park has to offer by yourself, take a guided tour or take Mount Desert Island's bus, the 'Island Explorer', available to the public free of charge! Destinations include just about anywhere you want to go on the island. There are a number of outfitters located on Mount Desert Island that rent bicycles and kayaks, several with walking distance of 'Midships'. A stroll into Southwest Harbor or a short drive to Bar Harbor and you can enjoy a wide variety of activities from the most relaxed to the most rigorous, dining for all tastes and budgets, and shopping in many unique shops and galleries. Regardless of your interests, 'Midships' and the surrounding attractions are sure to make for a fulfilling vacation!

Come in the Fall-Beautiful Foliage, lower rates! : The months of September and October are a fabulous time to come to 'Midships'. The rates are lower, the crowds have left, the weather is comfortable and the foliage is spectacular!!!

Have school-age kids but still want to avoid the crowds, why not come to 'Midships' in June!

PERFECT STAY!

  • 5 out of 5
Everything was perfect! The description was accurate. The house was located on a spectacular spot in a very nice neighbourhood. The house was very clean and well-equiped. The manager provided a very efficient and customized service (was answering all our question by email or sms in a few minutes). I strongly recommend this house and I will rent it again in the futur. - Edouard (from Canada)

A FUN PLACE TO STAY

  • 4 out of 5
We a group of 8 grad students stayed at the condo for 3 nights. The ocean view was indeed excellent! The hot tub was amazing! The amenities were in great conditions! Everyone had a good time there.

Since the condo was the middle unit, and we were 8 young adults, we were told to keep it down and the rent was slightly higher than quoted because of the large number of people. Security deposit was timely refunded upon request after 1.5 weeks of checking out.

GREAT FALL GET AWAY

  • 5 out of 5
Great property. Very well maintained and clean. Liked being on the quieter side of the island but still close enough to get to the park and Bar Harbor. The hot tub was a nice feature. Eat 2 Pita is a must for eating in town! would definitely rent this place again and recommend it to friends.

WONDERFUL VACATION CONDO!

  • 4 out of 5
My family spent a terrific week at this condo in Southwest Harbor. The listing was very accurate and we loved the location so close to town and the beautiful view of the harbor. The condo was nicely furnished, comfortable and well supplied. This area of Maine has so much to offer - hiking, biking, golfing along with great restaurants and shops. The condo was a peaceful and relaxing place to come back to after a busy day. I would highly recommend it!

PERFECT PIECE OF PARADISE

  • 5 out of 5
We loved Southwest Harbor on MDI. It was beyond relaxing and very non commercial. Southwest Harbor is one of the most quaint and charming fishing villages we have every encountered. The condo was lovely with plenty of room, wonderful kitchen, deck, dock and yard. The kitchen was fully equipped. The huge BBQ grill on the deck was our favorite spot to cook. We ate most of our meals in or out on the deck, as the view could not compare at any resturaunt. Lobster were almost free as compared to our pricing at home, and we were right by the dock with easy and fast access to the fishermen. There were lovely organic and local pastery stores in town, locally home made pies huge and thick stuffed with blueberries, fresh ripe Maine wild blueberries in the back yard, and good fishing from the dock. We found the condo quite comfortable and inviting, three levels. Our teenager favored the upstairs which I could not navigate due to the stairs, my husband and I favored the lower level with a full master bedroom and 2 bathrooms. We met on the main level with the kitchen, living area and deck. I would not recommend this for a handi capped person, due to the levels and stairs, and also walkways from driveway into condo and out the backyard to dock. It seemed in general, MDI in general was not handicap friendly (I have a bad right knee, and encountered many many stairs everywhere we went). MDI in all was a fantastic place to visit, and South Harbor was an unexpected delight. We know and had been to Bar Harbor in the past, which has grown yet still remains rather non commercial (not a McDonalds on the entire Island). After 2 1/2 weeks or so, it was time to leave MDI and move onto the Boston area to finish out our almost month of vacation. We were sad to leave, but very happy to have had the opportunity to kick back and feel like a local on MDI, with a gorgeous homey condo to fully relax in and pretend was ours.
