    1BR unit on third (top, most quiet) level. Direct and unobstructed view of the ocean and the sunrise from bedroom and deck attached to living room.
    Building I. King size bed. We are long time owners at Samoset and look forward to using this week each year, but a conflict has come up for 2017.
    Please note that this week is "Friday to Friday".

    Access to Health Club on site is provided at no additional cost. Fitness Center has lots of exercise equipment, an indoor pool, hot tub, saunas.
    Full kitchen, but there is no oven beneath the two burner stove top --- there is a dishwasher there instead. Microwave oven and toaster oven too.

    This unit can supposedly accommodate 4 people using the sofa bed in the small living room, but the unit is frankly better suited to occupancy by 2 people.
    Four people would feel quite cramped, IMnsHO.

    Formal rental agreement required, provided by owner. This is a beautiful and unique property; check out TUG reviews for more detailed information.
    Price is not further negotiable. If the week is not rented for $700, we will just use a few days out of the week ourselves.

    I prefer to deal directly with intended actual occupants, rather than with brokers or other extraneous "middlemen", if possible.
    Any questions, please contact me by PM / conversation. Thanks.

    To clarify, "Friday to Friday" is not something I can change. All weeks in Buildings I and II at Samoset are "Friday to Friday".

    Bumping up. Wine and cheese "meet and greet" with timeshare manager early in the week involves no sales weasels nor any sales pitch...

    I have been asked if Samoset timeshare occupancy imparts any benefits or discounts or tee time priority at the golf course on the Samoset property.
    I am not a golfer, but I have not heard of any such "benefit" being offered or available to timeshare occupants during our ownership at Samoset. :shrug:

    Rented tonight "before the buzzer". Ironically, rented to someone who lives only about 80 miles away from us. Small world...

    I have to marvel at those owners who conduct large numbers of rentals. I play "landlord" only infrequently (and always reluctantly). Quite frankly, I don't enjoy or appreciate dealing with insincere tire kickers, "hagglers" and / or those who seem to expect me to spend my time being their volunteer travel agent / guide.
    For those of you who somehow have the patience and tolerance to routinely (and diplomatically) deal with such people, I can only say --- good on 'ya! :D
