Amazing gem

What a find! We found this place purely by chance, and are so glad we did. We have had a fantastic week despite the rainy weather. Will definitely be back.

Perfect cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this beautiful cottage. Everything was perfect. It is spacious, clean and has a very well stocked kitchen. Of all the rentals I have been to, this was one of the best. Hopefully I will return in the following years. Thank you Cheryl.

We spent a week at South-side at the end of July. We couldn't have asked for a nicer rental. It has everything that you would need. Beach view, 15 sec walk to the beach, fully stocked kitchen, TV w/ cable, internet, gas grill. We were so comfortable that we rarely left the cottage. I believe that we will be making this an every year vacation.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Wells beach has been my escape from VT in April, June and October. This was my 31st June visit and have always stayed at the motel/resort at the end of mile road with family members. Since I retired from work in April I decided to have a longer stay and searched the Internet for a beach cottage. After reading the reviews and talking with owner Cheryl I crossed my fingers and booked Barefoot Cottage southside. It is almost impossible to describe how perfect this spot is for amenities and direct beach access - even at high tide! I traveled alone out of necessity and have already reserved for October. I was surprised when two couples and a toddler came the day after me to the north side and yet I could barely tell anyone was there. The only caution I can offer is that the bathroom is very tiny. Cheryl also keeps the rental affordable which factored into my choice. This is the best beach vacation I have ever had!!! Leave the front bedroom window open so you can hear the pounding of the surf to lull you to sleep, and make you want to get up and going for a barefoot walk on the sand in the am. Thanks Cheryl.

Awesome, clean, beach front rental

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our 3rd (4th?) annual visit to this wonderful rental in Wells Beach, Maine. It is a duplex and being 5-6 professional women, we like extra space and rent both sides. They are both beautifully decorated. Cheryl has such great taste in decor and they have a beachy yet updated feel to them. Both sides have different personalities, but they both have 2 bedrooms with comfy beds, fully equipped kitchens, flat screen tvs, and the best is you are ON the beach. There is a house between you and the ocean like they do there, but you still get water/beach views and literally 15 second walk to being on the beach. Impeccably clean every time we've come here.... sand chairs to use are provided, games, can turn on the heat if you need to, so all you need right there. We find the price off season for the weekend to be reasonable and communication with Cheryl is great too. I would not hesitate to rent here again, and we plan on coming back for years to come.

We planned a last-minute family vacation at the end of the season and we found the perfect location here. We all loved being so close to the ocean and appreciated the quiet of the off-season. The neighbors were very kind in sharing sand toys with the kids. We especially enjoyed the view from the living room of the full moon rising over the ocean. It was beautiful! The cottage had everything we needed and Cheryl was thoughtful to leave a child gate which was very useful. We would definitely do this again with 2 adjustments - plan to go when it's a little warmer and we can stay longer. Thank you Cheryl for allowing us a "perfect" getaway.
