  • Orr's Island

    3/5

    Large spacious home with lots of room to spread out especially if traveling with another group. The back deck has views of the water through the trees. We enjoyed coffee in the mornings and sunsets in the evenings. Might suggest a picnic table or larger table for family meals. There is a small glass table but, it is a large deck with plenty of room to enjoy more seating/dining. The furnishing are comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. Lots of seating inside. The pillows were thin and no extras provided. There were 6 of us staying and provided 1 bath towel per person(ok with that). No face cloths or extra hand towels. Only 1 kitchen towel for the week. I realize water is a premium on the island but an extra kitchen towel and face cloths should be available. The backyard is beautifully landscaped with lovely terraced gardens but, not particularly made for young children to play. We enjoyed our stay on Orr's Island and plan to return next year. The home is suited for adults and older children. For that reason we may look for another property as we travel with our grandchildren.

  • Cute older home with a great view of the beach

    4/5

    This is a cute, older home with a great view of the beach. Orr's Island is gorgeous. I had a lot of coffee sitting on the back porch looking at the ocean. Beautiful lawn. It is on a well, which is extremely common when you're staying on an Island, so keep that in mind if you have a lot of water usage for some reason. My only ding to bring it down to four stars is that there is no air conditioning, so it was a bit too hot this August for that. The website should be updated to reflect the lack of AC, which again is pretty common in Maine; the temperature would have been perfect through June or fall. The ocean breeze kept things cool at night (actually a bit cold which old ladies like me love in menopause lol.) The house itself was very spacious, and my kids loved having a downstairs to run around in. We loved having the master upstairs away from the kids lol. Four out of Five.

    Hi Sarah, we're glad you enjoyed your stay overall! The homeowner wanted to share the following: "Thank you! We have looked into purchasing a portable A/C unit for those few days when the temperature is exceptionally high. Unfortunately, the first day of your visit was one of those days. It is rare that A/C is needed with the ocean breeze that keeps things cool. As you noted, it's even a bit chilly at night. We are glad you enjoyed your stay."

  • Description is deceiving

    3/5

    Overall house was pretty clean, although mostly outdated appliances they worked good. Dishes in cabinet especially glasses were very dirty looking with some kind of film on them, maybe due to brand of dishwasher detergent. But had anything in kitchen you would need except they didn’t have any dishrags, they want to to wipe down counters but only have hand towels. master bath tub was dirty when we arrived, says steps to Casco bay but they don’t allow you access to walk there, they don’t mention that only 1 person can take a shower at a time, which is very inconvenient For a family of 7 needing to get ready, downstairs shower only drips water so everyone had to use upstairs master bath, washing machine drizzles water and takes forever to fill up, had plenty of room in the house for everyone to not feel cramped, beds were comfy, I slept great with the windows open and the fan on it was very cool in there. You also have to take the trash and the recycling to the trash dump yourself. Went there one day to take trash off and they were closed even though it was a day they were suppose to be open. And they also don’t mention when booking that you can’t have any visitors over. I had family come down from vermont to Maine at the same time and they couldn’t even come over and visit.

    Hi there, we’re sorry your stay fell short of expectations. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    -The home is always professionally cleaned before each check-in, and the owner confirmed that they inspected it before your arrival and didn't see any cleanliness issues with the glasses, unfortunately, it is well water and may cause lime deposits on it. Our professional cleaning team is responsible for ensuring a clean kitchen for all guests
    -As is standard for vacation rentals, we provide a starter supply of paper essentials for guests’ convenience along with dish towels. We appreciate the feedback and suggestion for dishcloths to accommodate our future guests
    -We apologize that the check-out instructions for the trash were not straightforward. While we provide that information in the listing we will endeavor to review it and see how we can clarify the instructions so this issue does not recur for future travelers
    -We have taken steps to update our listing to remove "Steps to Casco Bay" for our listing to be accurately advertised
    -We provide plenty of details in the listing description about the property being well water and mindful of conservation of water usage
    -We apologize for the water issues you were having during your stay. However, we discovered if multiple people are using the shower at the same time the pressure will be low. We replaced the heads with handheld showerheads to accommodate our future guests
    The owner works hard to provide an ideal stay for all guests, and we look forward to this home hosting many happy travelers!
