A perfect beach island house, with plenty of character. Great location.

This is the second time we were hosted by Katalin and we had a very good time on the island, once again. Her property is close to the two main beaches on the island and also to the Shop and the Wharf!

My family (of four adults and four young children) love the Katalin's house. The island is amazing. It's like going back in time. Slow pace, unplugged, not to mention full of beautiful scenery. The house itself has everything you need, and can accommodate a wide range of group…

Nice private setting. Conveniently located near library, tennis courts, playground, beaches, tide pools, ferry dock. Love the screened in porch! This house worked great for our family of 4 for a week on the island.

We loved our stay on Long Island. It is a beautiful island and the beaches and slow pace were just what our family needed. The house was pretty much as described by Katalin and other guests. It suited our purposes of having a quiet, simple holiday and I loved not having a tv or i…

Response from Katalin:
Regarding your comments: I usually stock more toilet paper and paper towels, but I was not able to come up to the island between the last renter and you, so I did not realize that they had used up the supplies. The store on the island does stock these items, so it is not worth going to Portland for them. My description does warn renters to bring everything nevertheless. The cleaning person was supposed to do the laundry and make the beds, she did not tell me that this was not done, I apologize... I cannot provide firewood since I have nobody who can cut them, I will try to find out if anyone sells it. The stove is a normal cook stove, never had any issues about heating or boiling on it, always cooked our lobsters on it. Cant imagine what caused your difficulties. The grill does indeed need gas, but it was not part of the amenities offered with the house. Putting a railing on the back step is a good idea; we never needed it, but I realize that if older people stay in the house it is helpful. Will put one up.

The second week of August is a very popular rental week in coastal Maine so we were thrilled to find Katalin's cottage available our desired week and in a great location on Long Island in Casco Bay. My family of 4 had a very comfortable experience. The cottage is a typical old M…

Katalin was super responsive prior to our trip and provided us a very useful and detailed document about transportation to/from the island, the house, things to do on the island, and more. The house was as described but is definitely, as another reviewer put it, "campy". We staye…

Dear Rebecca, I just got up to the house yesterday,so I was not able to leave a public review, hope you don't mind. Don't worry about the broken table top, it can be fixed. Thanks for leaving the house mostly clean, my only negative is that the toilet was quite gross and the seat cover was broken. I apologize for the sand, I did not notice it when I changed the sheets - I should have shaken out the cover of the mattress, they usually get washed with the bedlinen. You are right that the place needs some work, I can't afford it right now; but I guess/hope you enjoyed your stay just the same. Best wishes, Kati
