Guestbook comments from the owner

We are sad that our Maine visit is almost over. The six weeks that we stayed was so enjoyable. We have had a very relaxing time in a beautiful setting watching the gorgeous views, listening to the ocean sounds, watching the fabulous sunrises and the cute seals bobbing in the ocean. We look forward to next year’s vacation at Sealview.Thank you again for a fabulous time and your generous hospitality.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Like our home away from home. April 2017 will be our 4th. year staying at Ray and Ruth's wonderful property. Every room of the apartment is always perfect but the Sun Room is our favorite. Always bring our favorite books to read sitting on the matching recliners overlooking the Maine coastline. Perfect vacation.

Thank you Ray and Ruth. See you in April. Pat & Paula

Beautiful views and so relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This place is fabulous! We have rented twice and are already planning to return this summer. The house is always immaculate and the furnishings seem hardly to be used. The views are spectacular and we love every minute of our stay. The owners could not be nicer or more accommodating, and we hardly even know they are around. We always brag to family and friends about our fantastic Wells, Maine vacation and look forward to coming back in future years.

The Place To Be!

  • 5 of 5

Whether exploring, shopping or just relaxing, this is the perfect spot to stay. Bright, exceptionally well appointed and very well maintained, this will become your "home away from home". Everything is self-contained on one floor with easy access to the unit. Lots of restaurants nearby but Seal View is also a great place to eat in and enjoy the ocean views. Ray and Ruth are always available and are very pleasant and responsive to deal with. This has become our second home.

You will not be disappointed. Peter and Barb

We visit here every year - that says a lot!

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting here for the last 5 years! We love the view from the back deck, love the quiet location, love the Bennett's! We have stayed in the middle of summer, Labor Day weekend and in October. Every time it is the same peaceful vacation that we needed after our busy work life with jobs and running a side business. The place is beautiful to look at, well kept and has a well supplied Kitchen and bath. Ruth and Ray make you feel like it is your very own , they are very friendly and respectful of your privacy. We book two different week this year and already talking about how we can't wait to go there.

Exceptional

  • 5 of 5

My family has been visiting Maine for the last 30 years. During this time, we have stayed at many oceanfront properties. This property is one of our favorites!

The pictures and description of the property are "spot-on".

Ray Bennet and his wife are great hostesses. We didn't need them much, but they were available. The house is very clean and has everything you need and more!

The furniture in the house and on the deck were comfortable and there is ample seating. The king bed is great!

The location is good as it is close to many restaurants and there is a lobster pound down the road.

The house is right on the ocean with a great view and it was fun to watch the seals on the rocks.

I read all of the reviews before I rent houses and sometimes I am disappointed. This property will not disappoint. In fact, I think it is a "gem" in Wells. I can't think of staying any other place, now that I have found a comfortable house with a beautiful view.

I can't wait to go back!

Great Getaway / Location and did I mention Lobster

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at Ray & Ruth's place. They were willing to work with us on some items due to some family obligations, and it was most appreciated.

One other review stated that the photos don't do the place justice. They are absolutely correct. And although we never cooked dinner there (the Wells Lobster Pound was just too close), it was equipped with everything you will need. Great place, wouldn't hesitate to book it again if in the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. Ruth and I strive to provide a comfortable, relaxing environment for all of our guests. That is why 21 guests out of the 28 weeks we rent are repeat guests. One couple has stayed with us for 14 years. We must be doing something right!!!!

We provide a year-round peaceful getaway vacation location enjoyable in all seasons. Our quiet, comfortable and modern accommodations are sure to please. Our location on the north side of Moody Point provides panoramic ocean views as well as vistas of the shoreline that includes Cape Porpoise and Walkers Point, the summer home of George and Barbara Bush.

Vacationers often comment in our guest book that our property is so awesome, that you must see it to believe it; describing it over the Internet (even with photographs) really does not do the property justice!
