ROCKLAND - a wonderful base from which to explore.
Our wish is to make this a home away from home, an affordable apartment so others can enjoy our beautiful area.
The apartment is a 2nd floor unit with its own entrance. It has 2 bedrooms, living room and kitchen, bath and shower and deck. The guest should be able to manage its care and cleaning as it is fully furnished with all linens, kitchenware, washer, dryer, fridge, stove, microwave, reversible fans for each room, and television with Time Warner package. There is a wireless computer connection available. As in most old houses, the storage is on the 2nd floor. The owners reserve a closet off the living room for their use.
Included are free outgoing calls to the US and Canada. This is the house phone so please use your cell phone for incoming calls.
There is a bag of sand toys for the children and sand chairs. The owner also has chaise lounges and chairs that you can take to the beach so you can travel lighter to come here. If you need something, ask. The owners may have it to lend you. There is a backyard away from the street where children may play. Their activity can be observed from the upper deck.
The owners are friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. While we have a cat and a gentle dog in the downstairs unit, we do not allow pets or smokers upstairs in consideration of the possible allergies of other guests.
Availability is on a 5 day basis or a discounted weekly or monthly time period.
The home is convenient to such schools as Maine Media Workshop, The Apprenticshop: A School for Traditional Boatbuilding and Seamanship and the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship. Rockland has a lively community for evening and weekend entertainment.

We want to our guests to enjoy themselves. Because we keep our rates lower than most in the area, we would like the apartment to be left neat and tidy. Linens should be left in the bathtub for us to take care of when you leave. A $200 damage and cleaning deposit is required. If additional cleaning is required, it will be deducted at a rate of $30 per hour. The deposit is handled by Airbnb. It is our hope that the guests will keep the unit in such condition that we will be able to send the full deposit back.
After a booking is confirmed, the booking guest will be required to list the names of the people in the party and the address of the guest who made the reservation.
