About Vacation Rental Properties

1.       Introduction: the right fit
 
There is a reader of this page who may have a threshold interest in traveling to Bar Harbor for a vacation, but who is uncertain about choosing between staying at a hotel or at a vacation rental property.
 
The following comments implicitly ask the reader whether a vacation rental property would be a better fit for him than a hotel, whereas vacation rental properties are not the right answer for all travelers.
 
Likewise, the following comments ask the reader who would prefer a vacation rental property whether the Oceansedge property would be a good fit for him, whereas the Oceansedge property is not the right answer for all travelers, and some would-be guests are turned away.

2.       Vacation rental properties versus hotels: where to stay?

      a.     Hotels
 
Most vacationing travelers coming to Bar Harbor choose to stay at one of the many hotels here.
 
More than a few of those hotels are excellent.
 
They offer good food, flexible stays, everyday housekeeping, and the quick tempo of many people coming and going hither and yon.
 
      b.     Vacation rentals
 
Conversely, some of those travelers choose to stay at a vacation rental property which they judge to be an intriguing personal home and a place of solitude and privacy and safety.
 
These travelers to vacation rental properties hope to make the place they stay in Bar Harbor part of their vacation adventures – adventures in reflection, in new intellectual interests, and in the natural surroundings of gardens and wildlife and an ocean at their feet.
 
3.         Contrasting vacation experiences
 
      a.     All vacationing travelers coming to Bar Harbor 
 
All vacationing travelers coming to Bar Harbor come chiefly in order to experience the unfamiliar:
 
    --     expeditions through a National Park not visited previously, 
 
    --     new and different cuisine from over 100 restaurants, 
 
    --     athletic activities like bicycling and kayaking although now in more gorgeous natural surroundings than in the metropolitan areas they left behind for awhile. 
 
b. Travelers coming to vacation rental properties
 
Comparatively few visitors choose to stay, if they can, in an actual home like the subject property, on the ocean shore at the edge of infinity.
 
Those travelers earnestly choose to use their vacation time to commune with the most important people in their lives: 
 
    --     with elderly parents whose years are dear, or 
 
    --     with a devoted spouse to be celebrated as a fortunate gift in life, or 
 
    --     with children to be remembered just as they are in their brief and tender years, and hopefully to be fondly remembered by them in later years, or 
 
    --     with old friends lest “auld lang acquaintances be forgot”, whereas there are few precious and true friends who come along in life and then abide, or 
 
    --     with a newcomer to a family: the person whom parents of a fiancé want to come to know as best they can, by talking with that person for hours and days in a place that is quiet and spacious, and has a peaceful and reassuring ambience; or
 
    --     with an enthusiastic  business partner possessed by inspiring new ideas, or with a co-venturer in some grand plan for good works for some of the great swath of longsuffering humanity who could never hope to come to this property or to experience anything like it, or with a person new to us but who knows a whole lot about something of fascinating interest to us even though we are tyros in comparison.
 
4. The Oceansedge vacation rental property
 
The Oceansedge property has been for many visitors to Bar Harbor an ephemeral home, a gathering place for families for just a week or two.  
 
But the property has also been a place where the departing guests have often said they were different in some way and richer for their experience there. 
 
Those are the sort of guests who should choose a vacation rental property, and this property.
 
The proprietor of the Oceansedge property covets for that home those guests who are a good fit for the property, and vice versa.
 
Those right-fit guests are warmly welcomed here and treated very well.
