Cute and comfortable condo in Southwest Harbor

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a month and enjoyed it immensely. The unit was not luxurious, but was comfortable and well equipped. The location was ideal - in Southwest Harbor - the quiet side of Mt. Desert Island. There were plenty of restaurants close by, as well as a grocery store and laundromat. The unit is located about 5 minutes from one of the entrances to Acadia NP and about 25 minutes from Bar Harbor. There is a free shuttle that will take you to Bar Harbor and most of the major attractions in the park. Tim and Sian were wonderful hosts. Tim was very helpful with suggestions of restaurants and things to do. All in all, a very enjoyable experience and I would highly recommend this unit.

Couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, perfect size for our family of four, and clean and comfortable! Everything we could ask for in a VRBO! Loved the lobster plates too, and the blooming lilac bush just outside our door provided beauty and wonderful fragrance each time we came and went!

Like another home

  • 5 of 5

What can I say about this special place? We felt at home! (Disclaimer: this is the first time I have used VRBO so perhaps this is a common experience). But my family and my little girls were able to use the facilities and the living space just as if it had been our own home--Tim and Sian were chill about everything --important when you have active toddlers trying to unscrew lamps and fascinated with the Big Mouth Billy Bass. My oldest started calling the place "La Casa Tres" (literally, the house 3) and it was clear she viewed it as a second home. She still asks to come back here. The heat was more than adequate (which was important as my mom runs cold) and the kitchen well stocked with pots to meet all cooking needs.

Tim left a bottle of wine for us upon our arrival, and he stopped in after we settled in to make sure we had everything we needed. Tim and Sian were both very neighborly and they were also fun to talk to! We got a good feel for living in Southwest Harbor. I would totally stay here again as my kids loved it so much.

Fantastic location, wonderful hospitality

  • 5 of 5

The location of this home in southwest Harbor is just perfect! Two minutes into the little village of southwest Harbor and also to Bass Harbor. Cute shops, restaurants, ice cream, and of course lots of lobster! Several entrances to Acadia national Park hikes, Long Pond for swimming and kayak rental, Echo Lake for rock jumping, within 2 to 3 minutes of the house. Market 1/8 mile away. Quick easy drive into Bar Harbor.. close enough, yet far enough to be removed from the busyness. Owner Tim Clements is lovely and the rental itself was just perfect for our family of 5 with 3 teenagers. Be sure to visit Quietside Cafe in Southwest Harbor for Miss Frances's key lime pie, and Beals, as well as Thurstons lobster pounds ... all just 5 scenic mins down the road. Highly recommend this location and home. Thanks Clements!

Nice place for 2 couples outside Southwest Harbor

  • 5 of 5

Nice living space in an attached unit--1 of 4 units (counting owners residence). A steep spiral staircase leads to a second loft bedroom with a very comfortable bed. Well equipped kitchen. Owner is friendly and gracious. A large selection of local informational pamphlets included a detailed map of hiking trails on the quiet side of Acadia which was very useful.

Awesome place, especially for a Family of 4 or less.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for my Family of four (one adult, three adolescent/young adult kids). Kitchen well appointed, grocery store and laundry less than a quarter mile away. Everyone had comfortable beds (or a mattress). Quiet, clean, very nice. About a twenty minute drive over to Cadillac Mountain, Loop Trail, Sandy Beach, beach trail, all of which are more in the Bar Harbor orbit. For us, we wanted to be a bit away from Bar Harbor.

There is plenty to do and see on Mount Desert Island. There is the obvious attraction of Acadia National Park and all it offers. There is the charm of Bar Harbor, offering evening shopping and restaurants galore! There is also : Whale watching / Lobster boat tours / Sail boat trips / Sea fishing / Fresh water fishing / Water Taxis to the surrounding Islands / Horse drawn carriage rides (from Jordon Pond House, a beautiful part of the park) / Sand Beach also in the park / Echo Lake Beach, in Southwest Harbor (a very popular beach with locals & tourists alike, offering restrooms, changing facilities and lifeguards) a great way to laze away a day! / and lots more, so come and rent our place and get some more useful tips from us!

Thank you, Tim & Sian
