Great location and house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just great, on top of a really convenient location! The house has lots of space and the beds were very comfortable. We went the first few days not thinking there was any cable, but it just turned out my younger sister did not know how to work the TV, lol! The owner was fabulous - super friendly, easy going and available for any questions you may have. Needless to say, we will definitely be back :)

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, unique beach rental. Our family has stayed here for over ten years. Only steps away from the best part of uncrowded Wells Beach, Maine. Ocean or marsh views from each window. Catch the sunrise from the front porch and sunsets from the rear deck. Great property for entertaining or just kicking back and relaxing. Easy access to Route 1 & 95 with many restaurants, shopping, attractions, etc. very close by. Owner is super-friendly and on-site if any problems arise. Ample parking and everything needed for a carefree, memorable beach experience.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We spent a lovely week here. The house is older, not fancy, but large and very well-equipped. Best is that it is right across the street from the beach, a wonderful, white-sand stretch with plenty of room to spread out and great swimming. Sandy, the owner, is super friendly and helpful. The house has a wonderful deck in back and a great porch in the front. I worried a little about having only one bathroom, since we were two couples and a child, but it was no problem, the facilities were just fine. Will definitely want to spend more time here.
