I gave this cottage one star solely based on the community in which it is located, which is very nice and convenient.
In no way is this a "High End" cottage. We found out at the last minute that we had to provide sheets and towels (this was not in the listing). Unfortunately, we also had to buy bed pillows, since those in the cottage were stained and falling apart. No blankets were there either and the bed coverings had seen much better days. Holes/dents in the bedroom walls!
Some of the other problems were:
*A/C did not work. Owner had it repaired, but it necessitated three e-mails, since all of the contact information provided was outdated. When they repaired the A/C, they knocked out the cable, necessitating another phone call.
TV was small and outdated, with a lousy picture.
*The furniture looked as though it was from a thrift store and was not comfortable.
*The stovetop was disgusting and needed to be replaced. Pans would not sit straight on it.
*The kitchen was ill-equipped with a jumble of scratched pots and pans and dishes. No lobster crackers in Maine!!!??
*Floors were gritty and there was only a broken vacuum cleaner in the closet and two dirty, old brooms.
*My husband had to glue the leg on an end table to keep it from falling over. A towel bar fell off the bathroom wall! Bathroom sink did not drain properly.
*A number of bulbs were missing or burned out.
*Dishwasher and refrigerator were extremely loud and worn. Need to be replaced.
Needless to say, I think we would have been more comfortable at Motel 6 than this overpriced rental.
We were very sorry to read your review. Your dissatisfaction after staying in the cottage for two weeks was a surprise. We have had wonderful reviews as you can see. The furniture is exactly as shown in the photos which i assume you reviewed on line before booking. Again wwe are sorry you were not pleased during your two week stay.
Small but comfy
The home was lovely, comfy beds and loved the walk-in shower. Well located and appreciated the security of the association. My only "issues" would be lack of storage in the kitchen, no space for groceries. (Was there for 2 weeks, so we ate in a lot.). Also only 1 accessable closet. The owners were great responding to questions and problems as were the folks from the association. The pool looked great, but we had bad or cold weather most of the 2 weeks. It would have been helpful to have had a TV channel listing too. All in all - nice place.
Lovely Cottage in a Great Location
I spent a lovely, quiet week in this sweet little cottage. It had everything I needed and was very comfortable! The owners Bob and Bonnie were very responsive to my inquiries and the staff at Beach Dreams (the association in which the cottage is located) were also very friendly and helpful. The kitchen is very well appointed, the cottage has a nice bathroom, and I loved the convenience of having a dishwasher as well as washer and dryer. I thought the entire cottage was very tastefully and comfortably decorated. I also really loved that there were ceiling fans located in each of the bedrooms, it made for very comfortable sleeping! Beach Dreams is a very secure and quiet location, the pool and hot tub as well as clubhouse are a very short distance from the cottage, so it was very convenient. Beach Dreams is just off Post Road (Rt. 1) so it's a short drive to lots of restaurants and beaches in Wells itself as well as nearby Ogunquit and York. Once inside the condo association, though, you don't really hear the noise and bustle of Rt. 1, very peaceful! Hope to come back next year.
What a wonderful cottage. Bonnie, the owner was so thoughtful and helpful. The area is perfect and the cottage is perfect. It was very clean and we had such a wonderful time relaxing in the yard. I would recommend this listing to anyone looking for a comfortable get-a-way! Soothing colors in the home. Great kitchen! Even a washer and dryer. We were on vacation, so we didn't cook or do laundry at all! It was a great vacation and the owners were awesome! We even arrived to a welcome basket which was so thoughtful. Thank you!
