Reviews from our Guests
Our experience at Peaks was perfect - we never left the island and rarely used our car (mostly strollers for children or bikes). We had a total of 5 small children and 8 adults in our group and there was plenty of room for all in the cabin. The kitchen was well stocked with supplies and we mostly ate in. The house itself was very nice - plenty of space for children to spread out and play games etc. I would definitely recommend this house if you want something affordable and not super luxurious to use as a home base for a fun week on Peaks.

I stayed here with a few friends for a long weekend and we were very impressed. There rooms were great, all had comfortable beds and most had bureaus for clothing and whatnot. The kitchen appliances (fridge, stove, oven, dishwasher...) were all nice and clean and working great. The deck out back had a great view of the ocean and a smaller pond directly behind the house. I would definitely stay at Pondsea Place again!

Description was accurate. Property was clean and welcoming. Owner provided lots of helpful information - where to swim, restaurants, bike rental. We had a big group of teenagers who loved exploring the island on their bikes and trying the different beaches. The house is beautifully equipped for cooking and eating. There were plenty of blankets and pillows for everyone. The deck is private and spacious. We played games and ate out on the deck a lot. The overlook is always alive with herons, gulls and just below us were a pair of black ducks always upending themselves for food. Very peaceful. We came away feeling that Peaks, especially on the Ram Island side, is extraordinarily beautiful.

My five friends and I spent a long weekend celebrating our fiftieth year at Pondsea. Everything we could have wanted and more was available to us. We'd all go back and plan on doing so in the near future.

We have just returned from a great week staying at Pondsea Place. The kids (12 and 14 year olds) had lots of room to roam and to just chill out. The adults had a great kitchen to work in, lots of room for relaxing on the deck, and the peace of Peaks Island. Pondsea Place is close enough to the ferry landing area so that biking over for ice cream or an occasional item from the store is easy, but far enough away that the day-trip crowd never comes by. We rented bikes for the week and did not miss having a car at all. This house is well-cared for, clean, and spacious. We'll be back.

My family has been going to Peaks Island for generations and we have so many wonderful memories. This year I wanted all of my family to be together in one house so I rented Pondsea Place mostly because of the size. It was beyond my expectations. My kids and I stayed the whole week and were able to accommodate all the other family and friends that came to visit us quite comfortably. The layout of the house is ideal, allowing plenty of space to all be together or find a little peace and quiet for yourself. The setting is beautiful and the location is perfect. From the deck we could see the pond below and the ocean beyond, I don’t know another spot on the island that offers this view. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a large, clean beautiful home for their vacation.

Pondsea Place was the perfect setting for our team’s planning meeting! We had spaces for working together and also there were plenty of rooms for us to get away into small group planning sessions. Thanks for helping to make our strategic planning week so productive. It worked just like we had hoped!
