CHARMING 2 BEDROOM COTTAGE IN A WOODED WELLS NEIGHBORHOOD VERY NEAR THE BEACH

Wells House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, sun porch with trundle bed, 1 large bathroom, sleeps 6. Free WiFi!

This charming, quiet cottage sleeps six with two bedrooms and a trundle bed on the spacious sun porch, which is also a great breakfast area and excellent for relaxing enjoying those summer nights with all the windows open.

The great kitchen space also has a side door for easy access to vehicles and a large, beautiful backyard for those summer cookouts. Gas grill/BBQ available for your use.

Being on the ocean side of Rte 1 (and far away enough to enjoy this quiet neighborhood) you are less than a mile from great ocean views and 1.8 miles from Wells beach, accessible along a pleasant coastal road. The house provides a great central location for access to coastal drives, restaurants, sites, and great Wells antique and specialty shops as well as shopping for all your general needs. You are minutes away from Ogunquit and Kennebunk Port in this central location, and the best ice cream shop in the entire area is located on Eldridge road, right off of Batchelder lane.

My home is very pet friendly and there is an entertainment center with a flat screen TV, DVD, Cable, CD, and digital music capability.

Prime summer weeks are now available!

I agree with the reviewer who wrote "Buyer Beware"

The owner is pleasant but the cottage was different than advertised. It says that it sleeps 6 - not. It says that there is a queen size bed - actually it's not a queen, it's a full. You think you'll have TV, no. But there is a TV that you can use if you rent DVD's, but you won't have access to television. The place was boiling hot, no A/C and we couldn't open windows because there were holes in screens and mosquitoes were coming in. Heat was coming through heater during the heat wave - it was cooler outside! Pretty little cottage but I wouldn't recommend it.

Owner's Response: My cottage does sleep 6. There is a full bed advertised as a full bed that sleeps 2. There are two twin beds that sleep one person each, and there is a trundle bed that sleeps two stepped or pulls out to full that sleeps two people side by side. That equals 6.

There is no air conditioning and I do not advertise that I have air conditioning, so you do get what is advertised. As for TV, there is TV, but no cable, and I do not advertise that I have cable. I do provide free WiFi and a connection cord for USB to the TV; you can stream movies or watch Netflix or whatever you want through your laptop or other device. I often watch TV through the flat screen TV using my smartphone, but I try to limit my TV watching when I'm there vacationing near the beach in beautiful Maine. I can usually watch TV at my regular home. There is a Redbox close by where you can rent movies to use in the provided DVD player.

I do provide fans and with the open windows there can be quite a nice breeze, but yes, it is hot in the summer. That is true. It is hot during the summer. As for holes in the screens, there are holes to let the air into the house as screens do. Other than that, I'm not sure what to say. The windows are not new, but they are in good condition. So, obviously, there is wear. I do provide three fans (two standing and one floor).

That should cover it as far as a short response. I won't go on with the problems I experienced with this renter, but the list is quite long. I bent over backwards and I'm dismayed to see that my good nature and attention to customer service ended with this review.

Quiet, pleasant stay...

  • 5 of 5
I enjoyed my stay at this cottage. Not far from the beach. Located in a quiet setting, the cottage provided me with what I was looking for. Interior clean and cozy; amenities provided were exactly as advertised; owner easy to deal with and pleasant; nice relaxing experience. I look forward to my next stay! Thanks!

Cottage is Ok But Buyer Beware!

  • 2 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this cottage this past summer. The cottage was adequate for our needs. It is centrally located in a quiet neighborhood, yet close to Route 1 and about a mile from the ocean. We did find some issues with the property, such as there was no microwave, no toaster, no air conditioning, a television - but no cable. When we arrived on Saturday, the lawn looked like it hadn't been mowed for a few weeks and the house had a stale, musty odor. We also encountered some problems with the property owner, both before and during our stay. He never sent receipts for the deposit or the remaining balance, and since his only accepted method of payment was by bank check, we didn't know whether or not he had received our checks. He also did not provide us with a signed copy of the rental agreement. We had to continuously contact him by email or phone to get any information from him. When we spoke with him, his attitude was rude and condescending.
We called him when we arrived to complain about the condition of the lawn and to ask what was wrong with the TV. That was when he told us that there was no cable service, but there was a DVD player and we could rent movies at Redbox. He spoke rudely at this time also.
After our stay, we had to contact him once again to request that our security deposit be returned to us, and at that time he accused us of causing damage to the cottage, and threatened to withhold some of the deposit. When we advised him that we had not caused the damage, and that, in fact, we had left the cottage in better condition than it was when we arrived and had pictures to prove it, he returned the full security deposit to us.
We would not rent this property again, nor would we recommend it to a friend or relative as we would not want anyone to be subjected to the owner's poor customer service skills.
We did make the most of our week in Wells, and enjoyed the beach and the many area attractions. We will definitely return to the area, but will find another place to stay.

Owner's Response: This review is erroneous on many fronts, and it is new news to me that the guest had issues with no microwave, toaster, or air conditioning. The guest did not state there was a problem until now and I do not state in my listing, verbally, or via email that I have any of those three things. I truly disdain negativity and malice so I won't offer argumentative response to this vitriol. I do admit that the lawn had not been mowed on schedule, but when I found out about the state of the lawn I contacted the lawn care company and they rectified the issue as soon as possible. I do not state that I have cable on HomeAway, so I do not assume guests believe that I have cable at the cottage.

My cottage is beautiful, a tribute to my mother who enjoyed Maine for so many years, and I honored her by purchasing this cottage in her memory and providing the best service possible. I am always open to thoughtful, friendly suggestions.

I am more than willing to allay any fears that this review has caused, including forwarding the email exchange concerning the security deposit and admission of damage with all header information to show that the email is true and not edited.

I look forward to enhancing your vacation stay by providing my lovely cottage for your use.

Sincerely,
Shaun

Cute little place

  • 3 of 5
Cute little cottage on quiet street, loved sitting out on the porch. Very close to beaches, restaurants and of course the famous Ice Cream, the Scoop Deck. Was allowed to bring my dog and she loved going to the beach at night because dogs are allowed on Wells beaches after 6pm.
