About Gregg & Cheryl Martinez

I grew up here in Wells from the age of 10 and still reside here. I left Maine for New Hampshire after graduating from St. Anselm College and had a 7 year career in Law Enforcement, though only living outside of Wells for three years. I have been in the hospitality business with my family as a child and right up to today.

Gregg & Cheryl Martinez purchased this cottage in 1976

Why Gregg & Cheryl Martinez chose Southern Coast

This property has been in our family since 1976. I was raised in the hospitality business and have been involved in the local tourist trade most of my life. I grew up on the Webhannet River that lies about 75 yards to the south of the cottage and caught many a brook trout there and have numerous fond memories of growing up in this beach community.

What makes this cottage unique

I have spent several years myself living in this cottage and enjoyed the quiet and the occasional sightings of deer, turkey, partridge, pheasant, fox, coyotes and even a moose one time that stumbled up from the salt marsh on the east side of US 1. This place offers the best of so many worlds and your world is determined by which way you choose to walk from the front yard.

Wonderfully relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying in this cottage and we enjoyed it just as much the 2nd time around! We have two young boys and it was perfect for our family of 4! Clean and had everything we needed for the week! Great location, close to beaches and shops.

Highly recommend! Thanks again!

The Gulls Nest was absolutely amazing! Extremely clean when we arrived (which is always a plus). The kitchen had everything you would need for your getaway. We loved how centerally located it was...there is so many things to do we didn't have enough time for everything! We will definitely be going back. Thank you for such an amazing weekend!

Gull's Nest is the perfect place for two...quite new inside, very roomy, quiet. The kitchen is well stocked and we were pleasantly surprised by the roomy double closet in the bedroom. Cheryl & Gregg respond quickly to all questions/inquiries. Great location close to Wells Beach, Ogunquit and Kennebunk. We stayed for a long weekend and look forward to going back again. It's one of the nicest places we've ever stayed in. It was our 1st time in that part of Maine and we were not disappointed. We are die hard Cape Cod vacationers every summer, but would return to this area in a heartbeat.

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth visit to Wells, Maine. For the past 6 years, my husband and I fight the horrible Memorial Day traffic and make the trip up from NYC. It's THAT special.

The first 3 years we camped at Stadig Campgrounds, but this year I wanted to introduce my mom to this special place and being 3 months pregnant meant I was looking for something a bit more comfortable- while still having that bit of nature feeling. As a last minute surprise, my brother was able to join us- which was perfectly fine since the living room has ample space for an airbed.

The apartment was bright, airy, and everything was impeccably clean. On Saturday, it was sunny and hot so we spent a day at Wells Beach. On Sunday, it was cold, grey and cloudy, so we drove to the outlets, did some shopping and then came home and enjoyed using the fire pit so much that we decided to run to Hannafords right across the way and pick up lobster ($5.77/lb!!!), steak, red Maine dogs and chicken. We grilled and enjoyed that camping feeling.

The neighbors were polite and friendly. The surrounding towns of Ogunquit and Kennebunk are always a treat and great places to dine and right down the road is Coughdons (sp?)- serving the best donuts and biscuit sandwiches you'll ever have since 1955.

We have ALREADY told our family and friends about the charming and cozy Gull's Nest and we promise you will love it too.

Quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time. Cottage was super clean and very comfy. Gregg and Cheryl provided a nice quiet retreat for us. There is loads to do around the area. Walking the beach at sunrise was a highlight. We will be back.
