We (wife and I and two small children) stayed in the “Periwinkle” apartment at Fish and Maine. The apartment was very shabby. The bed and pull out sofa were terrible. Nobody slept well the entire stay. The first night our children slept on the floor because there were no sheets, pillows, or blankets for the pull out sofa. We asked for them and were assured they would be delivered but they never came. Every fixture in the place was broken. The furniture wasn’t even up to thrift store standards. The biggest problem was the the bottom of the windows in the place were about 14 inches off the floor. Perfect for a toddler to climb up onto and fall out of. Not worth the money plain and simple
Having done art workshops on this island for years, many participants stay at some of these properties . The properties are all well kept and inviting. Many of the apartments are newly refurbished with modern conveniences.
it was everything you would want in a B&B--clean, comfortable rooms. ours had a kitchen and small dining table. a great room to share breakfast with other guests and chat with our hosts or read and have tea or coffee in the afternoon. also a great garden with tables outside. They cart your bags to and from the ferry for a small fee.
Shining Sails is the perfect get-away! I have been coming here for years, and it now feels like home because of the welcoming nature of John and Winnie. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Most rooms have patios with lovely views of the garden and or ocean. Each morning we are greeted by John and Winnie along with home made muffins. I always enjoy the lively morning conversation with the guests around the table.
We are staying in a two-bedroom apartment belonging to Shining Sails called "China Cap" and love it. It's a lovely place to be and we would recommend it to others. The owners have been easy to deal with, and the unit is impeccable. We enjoy the small balcony and view of the small harbor. Would come here again!
