IT'S ABOUT BEAUTY, COMFORT AND YOUR OWN SANDY BEACH AREA

Moody Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Adult Getaway..max of 4..3bedrm/2 ba.. two units..owner in one

Fall is a great time here at the beach. Make your reservation NOW.. Also, taking June and July reservations for 2015. Catering to adults only, the Sea Rose is an opportunity for adults to re-experience the beach in an environment that will capture their heart and soul as well as being able to provide for a need of adventure or quiet, creative hobbies. Within sight and sound of the crashing waves,..and the refreshing salt air flowing in the windows...the sense of peace having no neighbors to the rear...just a picture perfect scene of a meandering tidal river surrounded by marine birds and high, dancing grass and deer....and a beautiful, thoughtfully designed interior with space galore....and clean as a whistle...well...this is The Sea Rose.

There are three decks all with views and some in shade and some in sun. A maintained pathway to the river is provided for kayaking, tubing [lots of fun], and swimming. Bring your surf board, kayak, paddle board, tubes for the ocean or river. Bikes would be a good idea too. All of these activities are right here. No need to look and look for a place to use these fun items.

If you prefer a quieter pace, you are also in luck. Bring your camera as right from the decks are one of a kind shots. Maybe you like to paint, sketch or write or read....a perfect place as this rental is wrapped in artistic energy and peaceful moments with both exterior as well as interior places for these quiet enjoyments.

It is no mistake that a max of four is allowed even with three bedrooms. Remember, The Sea Rose is for a special time, of not being crowded and having the luxury of space is important to the concept of spoiling you. Spoiling you is a good thing. A couple, for example, can now bring a brother and sister and all will be comfortable in their own room. And four is the maximum so that the owner can offer...well...read on and smile.

What could top all of this? A very, very huge feature not to be found anywhere else here at Moody. You do NOT have to carry all of your chairs and other items on the long walk to the small, crowded public areas. Adults of a number up to four are allowed to use owner's small private, sandy beach area just steps from your door. Drop your chairs for the day. Come back and forth. Walk the beach. Swim, Play. Read. Talk and take in the view. You'll find no blasting music, no yelling and screaming, no litter. More options for beach enjoyment are open to you. You can still use the public way about 13 houses away and the huge beach area and parking area at the end of the street [fee charged] It is your choice. It is nice to have choices.

If all of this is something you'd like to have for a reasonable price, it can only be found here, at The Sea Rose. Call or email Midge, the owner who lives in small unit on first level. All walls and floors fully insulated for sound...very quiet.

Moody Beach and this very spot at Moody Beach has been in my family for three generations. The original was called 'Knotty Pine' cottage. In 1986 I purchased this from my mother and in 1987, using my love of designing homes, The Knotty Pine came down and The Sea Rose went from concept to reality.

I take immense pride in my home and spend endless hours [and money] maintaining it. I live in the one bedroom apartment on the first level. The rental was what I designed for my home on the second and third floors with its own entrance and 100% independent of the first level unit...but retirement in a recession...well, the best laid plans etc.

This is relatively new to the rental market and is an adult rental. I am not looking for lots and lots of renters. I am looking for the right renters....adults who appreciate a fantastic rental and treat it with care and respect. Would love to have renters who want to come back year after year....making it like a home away from home.

Midge purchased this house in 1986

Having been in the real estate business for many years, I have always said that to be happy in one's home, it must reflect your your personality and embrace the core of your soul. A little deep I guess, but it is true even for a rental. It is a huge part of your vacation so it should be just right for you. If you want to be in a well cared for and spotlessly clean rental, one creative in design with vaulted ceilings and windows everywhere with views furnished for comfort and decorated in simple yet pleasing touches, this is it. If you wish you could have plenty of interior space and decks galore and absolutely no houses to the rear...if you crave sunsets, sunrises, places within to tuck away for a nap or read....if you like privacy.

Unique...everything about The Sea Rose is unique. List is as follows: a kayak landing in the Oqunquit River just steps from your door; views from every room; three decks with sun or shade always available; drop dead gorgeous sunsets ; comfortable top of the line Serta mattresses; A windowed Florida Room overlooking the nature reserve and river ; extra table for games or puzzles; four beds : beach chairs included and plenty of deck furniture also provided; extra large kitchen with 16' entertaining bar; full size washer/dryer and a clothes line; Quiet and respectful area and neighbors.

AWESOME PLACE & AWSOME OWNER

Awesome Place & Awsome Owner

The pictures displayed here are good, but they do not do the home justice. The minute you walk into the house you are in awe. It is open, airy, clean and just plain awesome. You have great views of the ocean and river. You can watch the sun rise from the front porch and the sun set from either of the two back decks or the sun room. The extra features of the home are wonderful and I hate to share that we loved our time there. Kind of want to keep it to ourselves, but really it is a great rental property. Midge is a sweet lady who is very, very friendly and helpful. Can't wait for next year!!

Yes, the Sea Rose is poetry at Moody Beach. Our stay last September was a real treat. The Ogunquit area offers so many activities – from restaurants to art galleries to concerts. And the Sea Rose was the perfect place to begin and end our day. Some days we didn’t even go anywhere. We just spent the whole day enjoying the sunrise over the ocean, a warm breeze on one of the decks, a stroll along the beach (a short walk away), and the sunset over the marshes. Everything we needed was at the Sea Rose. If you are a bit of a shutterbug, you’ll be kept busy photographing the rising and setting sun, the ocean surf, the moon and its reflection on the waves, the flowers and the birds in the gardens and over the marsh. We found the Sea Rose a perfect spot where we could curl up and read, providing relaxation and renewal.

Our first stay along Ocean Avenue was in 1981, and we have been coming back ever since. The discovery of the Sea Rose has added a new dimension of luxury and enjoyment to our visits. This property is carefully maintained inside and out, with everything you need from wine glasses to Wi-Fi. We felt immediately at home in the beautiful décor of the large, bright rooms. And the friendly owner welcomed us with lots of information on new things to do. We’re already planning our next stay!

PARADISE FOUND

  • 5 of 5
We have been coming to Moody Beach for 20 years. Last year we discovered The Sea Rose and declared it the best experience yet. The property is absolutely gorgeous and beautifully maintained. Our favorite part was the choice of decks to relax on. When the sun was too hot on one, we would switch to another. The views from each were equally gorgeous- one of the ocean and two of the wildlife preserve in the back. An avid photographer, I got some amazing pictures of the sunsets.
The owner is wonderful. She provided extensive information to us before we even arrived. The property was pristine and she was a great resource for places to visit.
We simply cannot say enough. After 20 plus years of rentals in that specific area, we were absolutely thrilled with the property, the owner and the entire experience. The Sea Rose is a treasure!

UNBEATABLE LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in this beautiful sunny home many times in mid-June and October to avoid the heat and the crowds. It is tastefully furnished and the owner makes sure you have everything you need. The best and unequalized feature of this home is its location. There is a public walkway to the beach nearby and the advantage of this particular home is the large deck overlooking the Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge at the back of the house. After our three-hour walk on the beach we spend the rest of the afternoon reading and sipping wine in the back waiting for the sunset while people in the beachfront properties, in order to enjoy the sun, have their BBQ on the deck or in their driveways on the street side. You get excellent value for your money as the cost of rental throughout the season is well below the market. You will definitely not be disappointed. Lucia and Jean-Yves. Canada
