This is a great house for a large group of people. Truly a 1-minute walk to the beach. Space for everyone. House in great shape. Owner is a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!
First and foremost Cheryl the owner is a true pleasure to work with!! Extremely great host - Thanks Cheryl - you truly made our week a very enjoyable one!!
We had a total of 20 in our party and we never ran out of space. I joked that you needed bread crumbs to find your way around. The house was definitely large enough for all to enjoy their space, without any sense of crowding. The house is well equipped -and plenty of nice quality towels, unlike the ones you struggle through with at a hotel! The fact that it was so close to the beach made it easy to come and go as one pleased.
The rooftop on the apartment was Meme and Papa's haven after a long fun day at the beach with our grandchildren.
I would definitely recommend the house and more importantly Cheryl to all!
My family stayed here the last week in June 2011. It was fabulous!
Clean, updated, comfortable. Highly recommended. Owner lives 3 houses down - very available.
7 adult couples (14 total) had plenty of space to enjoy this great house - and no one got stuck with a bunk bed!. One of the key features that is not given enough attention is the roof deck - a great spot for evening fun. A well stocked kitchen, great porch, and plenty of ammenities make this one of the better rental houses I have stayed in. The ladies had great shopping close by, the boys had golf...then an afternoon on the beach was a near perfect day, with GREAT weather in late September. Cheryl is as easy an owner to work with as you can get, and can offer up some great local recommendations. (Hint: do Mike's Clam Shack for a Clam Bake/Lobster bake. Inexpensive, and they cook everything for you...all you have to do is clean up!)
We enjoyed this property very much. The house itself was clean and well furnished. Many of the adults gravitated to the enclosed porch for a quiet spot to chat, read, or just watch the ocean. Others chose to settle on the living room sofas to watch the high-def TV for the Summer Olympics. For our evening meals the dining room had tables and seating for all of us, which was convenient whether we were cooking or bringing in pizza or Chinese food. Plenty of kitchen space and a convenient washer and dryer. Great to have WiFi because we had at least 5 laptops.
Convenience is a key feature of this home's location. The grocery store and local restaurants are just minutes away. We recommend The Steakhouse and Mike's Clam Shack (both on Route 1). We recommend Forbes Restaurant for a light dinner; it's on the beach just 1 minute away.
For things to do, there is the ocean and beach, of course. We also went to Wells Nature Preserve, deep-sea fishing, mini-golfing, LLBean in Freeport, movies, old-time photography, and airplane rides. Many antique shops in the area.
We definitely recommend this to other large family groups.
The house was much better than I had hoped for. It is one block away from the beach, and one block from the main street that goes into the heart of Wells Beach. A large house, very clean and well taken care of. All the rooms are decently sized, and the third floor in-law suite is particularly nice. There is a nice deck on the third floor as well with commanding view of the tide pool and the ocean. The basement has 2 rooms, one with several bunk beds, perfect for kids. The basement does not have a bathroom which is a drawback. In fact, if there was one thing I could correct, it would be an additional bathroom in the basement and another one on the second floor.
The town of Wells Beach is convenient to Kennebunkport and Ogunquit. Both are nice sized towns with shopping and restaurants and good areas for walking.
We spent the first week of July here and the weather was absolutely fantastic. Cool evenings and sunny days with constant breeze. The beach is nice and wide during low tide and firm enough to run on.
If we needed a large house for an extended family, I would definitely come back.
New for Summer 2014!! Gas Fire Pit for your evening enjoyment!!!!
