Description

The space

Beautiful setting an hour north of Portland Maine. This is an apartment - not the entire house. As you look at the first photo the apartment is located on the upper left. The bay window corresponds to the interior pictures. The place does include use of an amazing private beach, play court for tennis, basketball, shuffelboard and bocci ball, bbq grill, outdoor lobster steaming cooker, picnic table and hiking trails. The apartment is quite roomy (be sure to look at the pictures) it has a separate bedroom, living room/dining room with an ocean view. Full bath with shower.

Historic sites from the 1600's nearby (Popham Colony and State Beach) as well as restaurants, golf and spa @ Sebasco Resort. A great organic farm-stand is a few miles down the road with lots of specialty provisions, wine and craft beers (North Creek Farms). One of our favorite restaurants is a few miles down the road, The Lobster House, and it has a beautiful setting on a back bay.

This is a one of a kind place as it sits on 4 acres on the Atlantic ocean, peace and solitude and quality family time is what people find here at Osprey Point..

My family has been coming to this area since the 1970's to Hermit Island Campground - a short walk away and it features Head Beach, and the Kelp Shed with arcade games, ping pong tables, a small camp store and snack bar. It is an amazing area that seems immune to our sometimes frantic world!

Apartment is fully equipped with pots, pans, coffee maker, blender, full fridge, stove and oven, microwave. Includes bed linens and towels, though you should bring beach towels and beach blankets - we also have a fair amount of beach chairs etc. Fire pit on site and Lobster & clam stands nearby.

WiFi on site however it is NOT the best feature of our place.. we are at the 'end of the line'... As technology and line worthiness improves, so too will our WIFI. Cell phones do work here but you may experience dropped calls.

Guest access

The beach is shared by about 5 other rentals and is just a short stroll from the apartment (as you look at the house go left!)

The play court, attached upper deck and the semi-private beach (shared by about 7 other summer rentals in the immediate area).

Other things to note

It is a good idea to stock up with groceries in Bath before heading to our place as it is the largest grocery store (Shaws) and pharmacy.

Nearby is the Hermit Island Campground, camp store for basic groceries and beer and wine.. they also have a snack bar.

There's lots of magic at Toms apartment on the cliff. The hike to the beach was beautiful, the few steps down to the water right outside the back door was heavenly. it really is that close! Basketball and tennis on site made the afternoon fun and active along side the hike to go fishing. Relaxed atmosphere, exceptional place to read and practice mindfulness. The apt had everything we needed and more 3

The views of Tom's place are breath-taking -- it feels like you are in a postcard! The space was lovely. Tom and Nancy were wonderful to work with and were super accommodating of our 17 month old son.

Very nice location on the shore. Never did meet the host on site due to our schedules. It was clean and nice however it would have been nice if the streetlight outside of the bedroom window went off at say 11pm.

On our arrival we met Nancy who showed us all around the property. It was even more beautiful than we expected. We sat in the lovely seating area on the rocks overlooking the ocean the night of arrival for our "happy hour", we grilled our dinner and ate outside and watched the most beautiful sunset from the upper deck. We spent all of Saturday outside, exploring Popham Beach (very close by) and then back to our own private beach at Osprey Point for 5 hours of total relaxation. We were the only ones on the beach all day and it was like we had our own private island! The weather was perfect and the property is one of the most inviting places we've ever been. The apartment is clean and bright and stocked with everything you need. We would definitely come back here again!

The apartment on the ocean is awesome! Unfortunetely we did not get the chance to meet Tom during out 3 nights stay. His parents who live in the other half of the house are super nice though and helped us a lot. They provided mosquito spray for us (which is essential!) and we rebooted the wifi together (connection over there is not stable at all). The area is just beautiful. On a sunny day nothing beats the private beach (go there at high tide for swimming in clear water). I especially enjoyed tennis/basketball court and the Weber gas grill. It's recommended to buy some barbecue and breakfast supplies before you leave Bath since it is about 25 minutes from there without larger supermarkets. The flat itself has a queen bedroom, a nice bathroom and a huge living room with 2 single beds. My parents and I would come back anytime, thank you! :)

Overall the stay was as expected, nice surf and relaxing beach. I thought however the 3 beds described where at least twin beds not daybeds.

Wow! Remarkable property and truly wonderful hosts! So welcoming to us all! What a special place this is! Breathtaking landscape with amazing views of the ocean. There were 4 of us (myself, my husband and our 2 kids ) and we had such a fun time together. We were spoiled with the private beach, our kids couldn't get enough. Lots of fun playing tennis, basketball, and shuffleboard. I loved being lulled to sleep by the ocean waves, plus the night sky was just as impressive. It was the perfect way to celebrate our anniversary with our kids too!
