Donna Pappas purchased this House in 2013
Why Donna Pappas chose Wells
This home is perfect for enjoying the beach. Whether you want to walk, swim, surf or just kick back and relax. Nothing between you and the beach except for sand and dune grass. The "upside down" nature of the house means you have the best views from all living areas if you just want to relax in the living room or on the rear deck.
What makes this House unique
The home's location and layout is indescribable.

Great house and great location
This house and its beachfront location were terrific in every way. The house is roomy and very well-equipped, with easy access to the beach. You can avoid Route 1 when you go to the grocery store or to the lobster pound, and that's a big plus. The views from the upstairs deck were excellent and having 4 bathrooms is very convenient if you have a crowd of visitors. The kitchen and appliances were modern and any utensil or tool was available. I would recommend this to family groups who want to spend time together, whether you want to go to the beach, dine together or just hang out.
Awesome.. Perfect for our family
We love this house been here 3 years in a row! We love it and the views are beautiful front beach and back beach. This year the water was the warmest it has been in years. Had a great week sad to go but we will be back next year!
THE beach house
This house on the beach is very enjoyable! It was built and maintained with great loving care!
Because the living space is on the second floor we enjoy a great view of the ocean all day. The house is very clean, well furnished with everything we need. We also noticed the special care taken by the owners for their guests, for example every electrical switch has a tag identifying which light it turns on. All pillows and mattress pads were new and of excellent quality; the BBQ was new and there was even a spare tank.
We have enjoyed so much the place that we didn’t even bother going to the restaurant. We have also enjoyed the frequent visits from Jonathan, who in turn seemed to appreciate very much grandma’s banana cake. If you wish to have the banana cake recipe, just ask Carolyn Weller, and we will provide.
A wonderful week at the beach…

House is located in a great spot, right on the ocean. Beach is very quiet with very little foot traffic. Lots of fantastic restaurants nearby including fine dining. House is located on the edge of the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge which you can visit and tour on Port Road in Wells, about 4 miles North on Route 1.
4 miles to Ogunquit, 6 miles to Kennebunk & Kennebunkport, 30 minutes to Portland, 50 minutes to Freeport for great outlet shopping. Only 90 minutes to Boston.
Great fish markets where you can buy lobster & clams and have them steamed for you. Bring the goodies home and sit on the deck staring at the ocean.
A short drive (50 minutes) takes you to Freeport, ME - the original Whole Town Outlet Mall with LL Bean and many other great shops.
Portland and its shops, restaurants, pubs and microbreweries are less then 30 minutes away. (But we actually have a microbrew pub 1.3 miles from the house - Fire & Brew.)
