Selkie 167 at BEACH DREAMS ~ rave reviews!

Bedrooms 2
Space 720 sq ft
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

This charming, cozy, and immaculate cottage is located in a quiet (low traffic) section of the 43 acre, gated Beach Dreams resort. It sleeps five and has one bathroom and two bedrooms... one with a queen bed and the other with a twin over double bunk bed. There also is a three season enclosed sun porch ... windows open to enjoy the gentle breezes or closed to protect from rain or cooler weather. Selkie 167 has quality furnishings and an attractive decor ... your comfort and enjoyment are very important to us.

Come join the fun! Beach Dreams has a pool as well as a jacuzzi and kiddie pool. The club house features a well-equipped exercise room, book swap or borrow, a video game room, as well as an air hockey table. Bocce, a basketball hoop, and tennis court are also on site.

*Beach Dreams is a non-smoking community.

Miles of beautiful beaches are nearby (Wells, Crescent, Moody, Footbridge, Drakes Island, and Ogunquit are the closest) ... the Wells trolley stops at the entrance gate. A detailed activity book with brochures, restaurant recommendations, and beach information is a definite favorite of our renters.

Visit in May or June ... a lovely time of year with no crowds, but still many fun things to do.

Comfortable Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable cottage with everything you would need for a short or long-term stay. Very clean and many community amenities for guests. Convenient location to all of the local attractions, restaurants, etc.

Would highly recommend this cottage for your Maine trip.

absolutely the best!

Well, it's like this - we rented Selkie 167 and friends rented in another part of Beach Dreams. We received delightful notes, a card, and a welcome letter that thoroughly explained all we needed to know about check in and the cottage - our friends received a short email. We opened the door to an immaculate, bright, cheerful, and comfortable cottage with freshly made beds - our friends had to bring their own bed linens and towels, and their cottage and furnishings were no where near the quality of ours. We had a binder overflowing with ideas and brochures for things to do, and there was a wonderful book about Maine for our children ... nothing for our friends. We had no cottage directly behind or in front of us; since it is in back of Beach Dreams, we had quiet and little traffic. Our friends were near the pool - need I say more? When not at the beach or out and about, we often all were at 167 - the porch was so relaxing. There also were movies, books, games, and even tennis racquets to keep the children occupied. Once home we didn't receive just our security deposit, but also a thank you note and a recipe. Well, both families had a fun week, but our accommodations were far superior. To solve that problem, next year we will return to 167 and our friends will rent 168 (same owner). Yes, their cost was a little less, but they will happily pay extra for all they will receive in return.

A Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, our nine year old son and his grandparents spent a wonderful week in Selkie 168. The unit is beautifully decorated and comfortable to live in. (With a significant spinal disability I have spent a lot of time in places that look terrific yet do not contain one comfortable chair.) We never felt crowded. The family easily fit at the dinner (and breakfast) table. With a spacious living room, a sunlit study, and outdoor seating privacy was always possible at the same time games were being played or Spongebob was on television. We were a few minutes drive - 4 or 5 minutes - from a large supermarket, two national pharmacy chainstores, and a variety of establishments that serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and wonderful ice cream. There was free parking - for 3 or 4 cars - directly in front of the unit. The one or two times it was necessary to call Judith (e.g., at 9:00pm a new battery was needed for the chirping smoke alarm) she sounded genuinely pleased that we had called.The unit was spotlessly clean and fully stocked. My only complaint was the absence of an ocean view - but not even Judith can arrange to move the Atlantic. This is a terrific, comfortable, fun place for a family to spend a week.

Owner's Response: Oh, how we would love an ocean view as well, but do believe the purchase cost would have been considerably more :) ... glad that was the only complaint , and do appreciate the compliments!

Wow! That's what you'll say when you open the front door and step into this little cottage. We felt like we were in a B and B because it is that charming and that well decorated. The beds are so comfortable, the porch is so delightful, and the many special touches indicate the owners obviously are trying to please their guests. There is an abundance of information about the beaches, towns from Portsmouth to Portland, and restaurant recommendations. The cottage is located in a quiet area of the gated community, but you'll have easy access to pool, tennis court, etc. If you are looking for quality and a relaxing atmosphere, Selkie 168 is the place for you.
