Rachel and Michael Hedge were married in 2007. Rachel is commercial real estate manager on the island of Oahu and Michael is a CEM specializing in HVAC and energy management. Together we enjoy golf, water sports, evenings with our friends and a good glass of wine or craft beer. Rachel also enjoys interior decorating, baking and Michael enjoys the outdoors responsibilities of yard work. Our adventures on Long Island together began in 2008, where Michael wanted to share his family's home, traditions and history of long summer vacations on the island. Rachel immediately fell in love with the charming island with a small town vibe. Traveling from Honolulu to Portland and onward to Long Island is a great adventure for us, but so worth it once you set foot on the island. One ten hour flight to New York City and then a hour and half flight to Portland. We take a taxi to Casco Bay Lines and check our luggage in. We enjoy a nice lunch at one of the great restaurants of the "Old Port" and set sail on one of the afternoon or early evening ferries to Long Island.

Why Owner chose Long Island
Our Home Sweet Home is rich in Long Island history as the locals refer to the property as the "Island Midwife's Home". The property is a turn-of the-Century Victorian Farmhouse, for we offer a coastal ambiance keeping with an island feel. In the summer of 2014 we were assisting our Parents restore the Duney Cottage across the street and for convenience they booked Home Sweet Home. At the time the exterior of the home offered the original wood exterior chock full of chipped paint. It reminded me of a mid-century Norman Rockwell painting of a home on a little dirt country road. Inside, a Mother and Father with two children around a dining room table laughing, while enjoying home-made apple pie. Today, the house no longer has the chipped paint and there have been some changes the interior. The kitchen offers all appliances, including a dishwasher and microwave. we have updated the bathroom and laundry rooms. We hope you enjoy the coastal charm and ole' world vibe of our Home Sweet Home.
