Sleeping steps away from beach

  • 4 of 5

Lost count how many times we have stayed at the cabin.

Always enjoy the proximity of beach

The cabin is small, but has all we need for a short romantic stay

Location is perfect with everything near by

Just as described

Fantastic location, beautiful studio. If you're into "tiny homes", you'll love this. Everything you need, very nicely appointed. We went off season and the other cabins were not occupied. It was quiet and peaceful.

Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

This cozy little cottage has everything you need for the perfect getaway. It is exactly as pictured. The bed is comfortable and the sunrise over the ocean is amazing. The location is perfect for anyone who wants to visit all the local attractions or just sit on the beach. We would definitely stay again. The only issue we had is that the parking space is very tight. We have a small truck and it did not fit in the assigned space.

A Bed on the Beach: Chapter 2

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year at this property as well, and it is something i look forward to all year. I agree with everything Donna D wrote in her review. If you want a cozy, spotless, bright and well appointed 'bed on the beach' to watch the sunrise and to let the waves lull you to sleep, then this is for you. Do not be mistaken- it is a small space and takes a little maneuvering at first, but it is a unique and affordable opportunity to have a beachfront vacation for two. And the location, as others have mentioned, could not be more perfect. We walked down the beach into Ogunquit for breakfast each day!

Thanks again for everything, Deb!

Exactly what the Doctor ordered!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd year renting this adorable cottage and have already reserved for next year, thank you Deb!

Just need to address some of the comments made by Gabrielle G. Apparently she was surprised by the size of the unit.. If she had read the reviews, most if not all say either small, cozy or tiny! Yes it is small, but perfect for a couple! The unit looks exactly as shown in the pictures. Very clean and tastefully done. As for the construction noise we did not find it to be a problem, not to mention that it is temporary! I was floored by her comment saying she was expecting to have a private area, and that other guests where using the chairs in front of the unit blocking her view.. This is a condo association which means the only private area you have is in the condo itself, or the spot you choose on the "private beach".. Everything else is shared which has never been a problem! I find everyone to be considerate in using the common areas.. sounds like Gabrielle thought she was renting a private villa, maybe she should consider Bora Bora next time. Also I just have to say that in all the years we have been renting this cottage, we have NEVER had any issues with the WIFI connection.

Beautiful Location, Just Okay Cottage

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and loved the location but were disappointed with several aspects of the rental. The location was absolutely perfect--Moody Beach is beautiful and the cottage is right on the beach! We were notified just before arriving that construction was occurring next door but that other guests had stated that it was not very intrusive. Starting on Tuesday (after a long weekend), the construction began each morning at 7am and the constant banging, sawing, and yelling made it impossible to sleep in or enjoy waking up next to the beach.

Second, we found the cottage to be smaller than expected. If you look closely at the photos and think about how it all fits together, you can get a good idea of the small space, but even being prepared we were surprised by how teeny tiny it was. Additionally, the other cottages in the association are VERY close and we did not realize when booking it that we would not have a private area. The chairs in front of our cottage were often used by guests at the other cottages who blocked the ocean view. Had we fully understood the proximity of the other cottages and the low level of privacy afforded by the association, we would not have chosen this rental. Further, the group of cottages have rather strict rules including "quiet time" and no beach fires. We splurged on this rental because it looked so perfect and were disappointed to realize it was not what we thought it would be for our honeymoon. We felt the price was rather steep for the size of the space and the very low amount of privacy.

Smaller issues came up as well such as poor WiFi in the cottage. We only used it in the evenings to stream movies or tv shows but it would often cut out and required us to call RoadRunner because of continued interruptions in the service. Also, the curtains in front of the sliding glass doors offered very little privacy. They blew open if the doors and/or the windows were open and blocked out almost no sun during the day, meaning that the cottage got very hot very quickly and there was a lot of bright sun first thing in the mornings.

Our summary would be that the location is amazing but the cottage was disappointing, especially for the price. If you are only looking for a small spot right on the ocean and don't mind the high price tag, this cottage works. But, if you're looking for anything more than that, we would recommend looking elsewhere

Moody Beach is located in the town of Wells between the popular towns of Ogunquit and Kennebunk. Wells boasts seven miles of white sandy beaches. Moody is a private beach. Our cottage is located on a peninsula of land with the Atlantic ocean in our front yard and the Ogunquit river and Rachel Carsen preserve in our back yard.

Very popular area for tourists with many restaurants and close by area attractions.
