|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
3 bedroom contemporary home within 2 minute walking distance from beautiful Wells Beach. Parking provided for 4 cars. Trolley stop within walking distance. Wells Beach offers swimming, sunbathing, walking, and fishing. Bordered by the quaint coastal towns of Ogunquit/ Marginal Way and Kennebunkport.
I've been coming to the Wells area for vacation for 30 years. We've stayed in a wide assortment of places and the Hi-Wind is my new favorite. Everything is exactly as described with so much more. We loved all the space, inside and out and such a short stroll to the beach or shops. Bedding, towels, washer, dryer, and dishwasher made is so easy. A bonus was being able to hear the waves from the upstairs bedroom and a mockingbird singing every morning. We'll be back.
We have been renting Hi-Wind for over 10 years. It has everything you want and need for a great vacation. Only a minute walk to one of the finest beaches on the East coast, a restaurant, arcade for the kids and a few gift shops. Spacious and in very good condition. They make improvements every season. Full WIFI access and cable TV both in the living room and the large upstairs room. A galley kitchen with all up to date appliances. Comfortable seating and sleeping. AC in the living room for those extra warm and humid days. Convenient to a major super market, numerous restaurants and many more places to shop. Also an easy drive to Kennebunkport and Ogunquit for more shopping and sight seeing along the Maine coast. And, the nicest owners you'd every want to deal with!
Just got back from the Hi-Wind home on Moody beach. It was literally 2 minute walk to the beach. When we arrived the house was bright and inviting. My 95 year old Nana kept commenting how wonderful the home was. The open concept gave ease for her to maneuver around the main floor. Even though you are that close to the beach, arcade (which my children and husband enjoyed), and shops, it is a very quiet house (with all the windows open :) ). There were 7 of us and there was plenty of room. I think the house has everything you could want there; from pots to cook your own clambake, a grill, even a beach umbrella (which we used for Nana down on the benches overlooking the ocean), boogie boards for the kids, games, books, the lists goes on. A great family rental.
Loved our stay at this home. Was in every way a home away from home. The house was super clean and comfortable, kid friendly, and well stocked with everything you could imagine and might have forgotten. The owners were friendly and easy to work with. The only thing I found that I would have liked to know ahead of time is, that although it said air conditioning there was only one unit in the downstairs living room and none in the upstairs bedrooms. The only reason that I gave it 4 stars. Oh and I forgot to mention only steps from the beach!!
We had a fantastic time at Hiwind and in Maine generally. The location is very convenient, down the Mile Road with a bunch of shops, restaurants, and inns, and within walking distance to the main plaza in Wells with the Hannaford, liquor stores, the movie theater, and other restaurants. Hiwind had a lot of beach items to use and would be perfect for couples, friends, or families who wanted a good value. It's not luxury accommodations by any means, but we made a lot of good memories there and hope to go back someday. Nancy and her sister Laurie were more than capable of answering our questions and worries, and everything in the listing was as described. Our only complaint was that the internet could be a bit finicky, but for normal tasks such as checking email and browsing, it's fine.
Just back from Hiwind home vacation! Please note "home" and not house ! This is a special "home" full of; games for children, full of towels everywhere, 3 showers ( mine favorite is outside), dishes ( enough for a small army), beach chairs, beach games, books ( you must all read about the tunnels used in Vietnam ) etc,,, Open area first floor with great kitchen.Close to all services, restos, arcade etc,,,One block from beach so on quiet street yet 2 minutes from main beach!Clean,,clean
