SPACIOUS WATERFRONT HOME

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Boothbay Harbor

Townhouse Condominium, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4).

Townhouse condominium in a fantastic location, a beautiful relaxing and spacious home for you to enjoy.

It is actually a large 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 2,500 sq. ft.+ home, but one suite is unavailable to renters.

Waterside location, with an easy stroll to the town wharfs, restaurants and stores.

Local amenities galore to make this your special vacation place.

Thank you for your interest in our home.

Although we live in England, our connection with Boothbay Harbor goes back a long way, more than thirty years, in fact!

We worked here as students, married and brought our three children back for frequent vacations over the years.

Spencer and Sam our older boys began their working lives in and around the Harbor...as busboys, waiters, barmen and their happiest employment as Camp Counsellors at YMCA Camp Knickerbocker!

Our youngest son Joshua has a learning disability/autism and he spent eight truly wonderful summers with his brothers at Camp.

We were fortunate enough to finally buy our own place in 2004 and regard Boothbay as our summer 'home'.

All the stuff there is ours... it is immaculate. It was completely remodelled a few years ago..new kitchen, new appliances, new bathrooms and mostly new furniture. The linens and towels are upgraded every two years, with the exception of the bed pillows which I buy new every year.

It's not your typical rental...............we close up fully for at least seven months a year and rentals are only available appropximately eight weeks per year. Sorry....no children, no animals and no smokers.

You will enjoy the views from the deck and balcony..we have herons, osprey, ducks, shags and a multitude of wildlife visiting the water.

The small marina is a two minute stroll through the gardens. You can swim from the little rock beach (if you're very brave! We do all the time but then we're used to cool water!)

Town is a five minute walk away, with great restaurants and lovely diners.

If art is your passion, the town has some superb galleries to visit.

Take a sunset cruise around the islands, go whalewatching or take a sail on one of the antique windjammers!

Go fishing for striper, bluefish or mackerel.......even shark if you're very adventurous.

Golf at the local Country Club.

And of course.........

Eat Maine lobster inexpensively at the Lobstermans' Co- Op.

Why cook, when you can have takeaway seafood, burgers and fries at the 'soon to be world famous' Dunton's Doghouse............tell Gary we sent you!!..it's one minute walk away.

The nationally recognized Botanical Gardens are a must ........

Walk along the water's edge at Ocean Point and see (and hear) five lighthouses at once!

But most of all, do relax and enjoy our home.

Maurice and Valerie Healy

Hello

Welcome to our home. We are Valerie and Maurice Healy.

We grew up in Ireland, and now live in England........when we can't spend time in Boothbay!

We first discovered Boothbay Harbor in the 1970s when we were students, working many happy summers in the town. We just could not get enough!

As our family of three boys got older, we just had to re-establish our Boothbay connection, first renting, then buying this lovely property. Our home in Boothbay has been such an asset to our family life; our young adult sons truly look at Boothbay as their second home, not just a vacation place.

Maurice Healy purchased this condo in 2003

It is so tranquil, yet convenient. Is at the water's edge, a short stroll to town shops and restaurants,

We did a full refurbishment just a few years ago including a very smart new kitchen and all new bathrooms and appliances.

It has a clean uncluttered feel to it, over 2,000 sq. feet for your use.......

We just love it!

More on this later, I promise. Mostly the peace and quiet of Maine.

Maurice and Valerie's beautiful property is modern and stylish with well appointed interiors, and all the creature comforts.
I loved drinking hazelnut coffee on the sunny deck, enjoying the superb views across the bay and planning a day of sightseeing. The layout of the property is light, bright and spacious. Every detail has been considered which made our stay so enjoyable. The centre of town is a wonderful short stroll away, make sure you take in the water views, and beautiful flowering rock gardens along the way. After a day of exploring the local sights, coming back to the property is like returning to an oasis of calm.

The bathrooms are spotless, modern and warm with heated towel racks. The bedrooms are comfortable, clean and spacious with all the amenities. The living area has two large comfortable sofas to sink in to with a good book or watch a movie on the flat screen TV. The kitchen is easy to use with everything we needed when we cooked meals. We loved wandering in to Boothbay for shopping, art galleries and our meals, our favourites for breakfast: Blue Boon, Ebb Tide and for lunch/dinner: Chowder House, The Bistro, McSeagulls. There is so much to see and do in the area, highlights including visiting a live lobster yard for fresh lobster rolls, taking a boat trip to explore the vast waterways and inlets spotting seals and lobster fishermen along the way, swimming in lake Knickerboker, finding some absolute bargains at the picturesque Freeport shopping outlet.
We cannot recommend this property enough, This was my first stay in New England, having travelled all around the world I can honestly say Boothbay is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited.

A Magical Time in Boothbay

This townhouse exceeded all expectations. The photos were accurate but could not show the owners' attention to details. Everything we needed and more was here for us to enjoy. The place was immaculate and fully equipped with fresh linens, a kitchen entirely stocked with tools, condiments and appliances, comfy throws in the living room, and tv's, audio equipment, books and magazines.
My friend and I each had complete privacy since the second bedroom and bath were on the upper floor.
Any questions we had were promptly answered either by the owner or the person maintaining the property.
The Boothbay Harbor region is highly recommended for a true taste of Maine. We were here during the week when some businesses were preparing to close for the season, but we still managed to have our share of lobster rolls on decks viewing the ocean and took several trips to take photographs where we could not take a bad shot. The Botanical Gardens should not be missed.
We have recommended this location to all of our friends, but we're hoping there will still be a vacancy for us in the future.

One of our best ever !

My friend and I recently spent 4 nights at Maurice and Valerie's beautiful condo. We are both VRBO
veterans and this was one of THE nicest places either of us have ever stayed. It is immaculately clean, tastefully decorated, very well appointed, and the views off of the deck are to die for. The location is so
peaceful and serene, yet so close to all that Boothbay has to offer. We were fortunate to have had mild, sunny weather while we were there, so we were able to enjoy breakfast in the morning and wine and cheese in the afternoon al fresco on the deck. The fresh flowers and bottle of red wine we found on arrival were a nice touch , but since we drink white we left it for the next guests to enjoy .
We went to the Botannical Gardens and the farmers' market, and took a harbor cruise on the Island Lady ( learned a lot about the area and its history, as the Captain was very knowledgeable )and all 3 were time well spent. As far as restaurants I would highly recommend Ports of Italy, The Boathouse ( Mark, the owner, is quite a character ! ), Momma D's for breakfast, and Mine Oyster is a
fun place for seafood and live entertainment.
We had a wonderful time and would go back in a heartbeat, and this condo is the perfect place to stay to enjoy it all. I only dealt with Maurice when I booked, but he was friendly, prompt, and very helpful whenever I had a question. Thank you Maurice and Valerie for sharing your condo with us.
We hope to return soon !

This is a spacious, super clean and well-kept condo. It has recently been completely upgraded with granite stone counter tops, stainless appliances and new bathroom fixtures. I can't think of anything that wasn't already there, including a choice of cork screws. The owners go out of their way to provide a perfect week's vacation for their guests.

Another Fantastic Vacation

I have now spent five summers in this wonderful condo and I can't recommend it enough. Each trip gets better and better and the scenery is just as breathtaking as it was back when I was first introduced to this charming town. The location is a perfect balance between the tranquility of sitting on the deck watching the calm water and the short walk which takes you into the centre of the lovely town of Boothbay Harbor. The town itself provides a range of activities to keep everyone entertained. But if it's a quiet spot to read with a glass of wine that you're after, then this property is for you. Maintained to an exceptionally high standard, with rooms spacious enough to stay cool even on a hot July day! Can't wait for next year.

Location

Boating, whale watching and charter boat fishing.

Nature walks, is very close to the acclaimed Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. And of course, those wonderful autumn leaves to enjoy.

Daytrips to Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland. Antiqueing in Wiscasset and Hallowell.

One hour from L.L.Bean and so many outlet shops in Freeport.

A short walk to the boat that goes to Monhegan Island daily.

Close to Barrett Park, a lovely park right on the water with great swimming and relaxing.

Southport Island is a short drive and there you will find Hendrick's Head Light and a small beach.

Fireworks over the Harbor for the Fourth of July and Windjammer Days (end of June).

The historic Opera House in downtown Boothbay Harbor has an amazing line-up of concerts and shows all year long. Oh yes, and the food....great variety of food, many places to have lobster and other seafood as well as Italian, Vietnamese and the very famous Dunton's Doghouse is just up the street.
