Moody Beach house description

RESERVE NOW...CALENDAR IS UPDATED DAILY
Catering to adults Only, The Sea Rose is ready to thoroughly please you with its beautifully designed interior , with the outstanding views of the ocean and river as well as the unique location offering you easy river access for kayaking, paddle boarding or fishing as well as direct beach access. And the spectacular views across the tidal marsh will absolutely hold you speechless especially with the sunsets over the river as well as sunrise over the ocean.
So many decks each with its own views, sun or shade, available for reading, writing, painting , relaxing, eating/cooking outside, or if on the front deck....people watching. This is a very roomy rental.
A sandy beach awaits with three options as to where you can go to enjoy yourself : [1] a huge 1.5 mile long public area with sand dunes, bathrooms and life guards just 6 minutes walk away or park your car for a fee. [2] a three minute walk to a small public area [3] or a one minute walk across the street to a very small and rare private area. So you can choose where you are the most comfortable. I provide beach chairs and an umbrella.
When you walk in the door of The Sea Rose, you have walked into a very well loved and cared for rental which is absolutely, positively clean. As you tour the rooms, you'll be full of smiles and breathe a sigh of relief that what you see is even better than the pictures.At least that is what everyone says to me when they arrive for the first time.
This rental seeks those who will treat this upscale rental with gentle care [ leaving it as you found it ] as well as appreciating that owner is not charging a security deposit nor a cleaning fee. Trust is a two way street.
So if this describes you, you have found your vacation spot where you are welcomed upon arrival and I am always available for questions or concerns.
You are never a stranger at The Sea Rose.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1986

              About the owner: Moody Beach and this very spot at Moody Beach has been in my family for three generations. The original was called 'Knotty Pine' cottage. In 1986 I purchased this from my mother and in 1987, using my love of designing homes, The Knotty Pine came down and The Sea Rose went from concept to reality. I take immense pride in my home and spend endless hours [and money] maintaining it. I live in the one bedroom apartment on the first level. The rental was what I designed for my home on the second and third floors with its own entrance and 100% independent of the first level unit...but retirement in a recession...well, the best laid plans etc. This is relatively new to the rental market and is an adult rental. I am not looking for lots and lots of renters. I am looking for the right renters....adults who appreciate a fantastic rental and treat it with care and respect. Would love to have renters who want to come back year after year....making it like a home away from home.

              Why the Owner Chose Moody Beach:
              Having been in the real estate business for many years, I have always said that to be happy in one's home, it must reflect your your personality and embrace the core of your soul. A little deep I guess, but it is true even for a rental. It is a huge part of your vacation so it should be just right for you. If you want to be in a well cared for and spotlessly clean rental, one creative in design with vaulted ceilings and windows everywhere with views furnished for comfort and decorated in simple yet pleasing touches, this is it. If you wish you could have plenty of interior space and decks galore and absolutely no houses to the rear...if you crave sunsets, sunrises, places within to tuck away for a nap or read....if you like privacy.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Unique...everything about The Sea Rose is unique. List is as follows: a kayak landing in the Oqunquit River just steps from your door; views from every room; three decks with sun or shade always available; drop dead gorgeous sunsets ; comfortable top of the line Serta mattresses; A windowed Florida Room overlooking the nature reserve and river ; extra table for games or puzzles; four beds : beach chairs included and plenty of deck furniture also provided; extra large kitchen with 16' entertaining bar; full size washer/dryer and a clothes line; Quiet and respectful area and neighbors.
