If you want a nice visit with your extended family pick a neutral ground. This is a place where no one family has a claim. Two sisters who want to get their respective families together. A family reunion with all generations together. We have been managing the Flying Jib for many years. This is our market and we are good at it.
In 1991, a cottage built in 1900, was moved to a new foundation and received a large addition. With a full finished walkout basement, this vintage cottage was transformed to a luxury summer vacation rental cottage.
With 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, large living room and dining room, a large recreation/family room, a home office/coat room, a swimming pool with a large deck and 3.4 acres of land the Flying Jib is indeed an enormous and luxurious accommodation for 9 people and more.
Great care has been given to providing a kitchen that is comfortable and convenient. We provide an efficient home office with DSL that is stocked with envelopes, tape, stapler, labels, stamps and paper. The swimming pool is off the walkout basement and includes towels, pool toys and patio furniture. The four bedrooms include closets and dressers and have extra pillows and blankets. In addition there are two inflatable queen sized beds and at least one couch for extra visitors. There are tons of board games, cards, jigsaw puzzles and books. We provide DirectTV in the living room television with a DVD player. The large family room in the basement has a TV with a VCR/CD player and a eclectic library of VCRs.
Almost half of the 3.4 acres is a long strip of land that goes out to Herrick Bay. So our property includes 50 feet of beach next to the Atlantic Boat Yard. There is a well defined path along this strip and it makes for an interesting, even exciting walk. The area at the beach and the boardwalk down to the water has received a lot of attention and looks good.
The landscape around the Flying Jib is typical New England; trees, shrubs, flowers, grass and weeds in profusion. Most of the land around the cottage is kept mowed. The fenced in swimming pool area includes careful landscaping and it has been maintained.
Navigation is easy. Into GPS put [Maine, Brooklin, Flye Point Road]
Look for the “431” on the right. If you arrive at the Lookout, you went about 100 yards too far. You are never going to get too lost on Flye Point.
To reserve your week, sign the contract and return it to us with a 50% deposit either as a check, or through PayPal. You can pay with a credit card. That is all! We accept the expense and responsibility for cleaning. Rather than a damage deposit, we use an honor system. If you damage something you contact the caretaker directly. The 9% Maine sales tax is an add-on.
We send you a rental agreement for your signature. The refund policy is somewhat based upon our ability to re-rent the cottage. A last minute (say a month prior to the visit) cancellation on a popular week will get a large refund in the likely event that we can re-rent that week.
