About the Property

Where adults are spoiled ....adults only.....max of 4

The Sea Rose has wonderful views thanks to the regulations when built that plans due to flood waters must be in reverse. So the first level of the rental house is on the second level and what was to be the second level is now on the third floor.This affords spectaculars views.Private entrance is on the driveway side. The first level which was empty, several years later, eventually was allowed to be a small apartment ...one I live in.
The rental house is large and has lots of open space enhanced with three decks, glassed in river room, vaulted wooden ceilings with beams and constant play of light from all of the many, many windows.Every detail is completely original not to be seen in other homes. This creative aspect creates a completely comfortable and peaceful place to enjoy your stay...even when it rains.
FOR A MAX OF ***4** ADULTS......and this is not how many it will fit but how many THE OWNER WANTS.
For my renters, I give many wonderful perks you will not get else where......no security deposit, no charge for cooking gas, use of owners river access for fishing or kayaking or tubing, and use of owner's PRIVATE small beach area just 125' away.
Unmatched at Moody Beach....all this for YOU.

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 Wells, ME, USA:
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.
