Overview

Wells Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Studio unit sleeps 2-3, 1 full bath

Unbelievable location, directly on the beach. Free standing small studio condo cottage, one of seven known as Moody Sands Villas. Our cottage has a new interior with full kitchen, corian counters in the color 'beach glass', sliding glass door overlooking the sand and surf. Enjoy a little luxury at the beach. Murphy wall bed with premium mattress, 600 thread count sheets, cozy blankets and cotton spreads. Lay in bed at night and listen to the waves crashing right outside the door. This is the closest thing to having a bed on the beach! Full bath with rainfall shower head and luxurious towels. All linens included, even beach towels. Moody beach is a private beach for homeowners only. It has beautiful powder like sand and is shallow, just wonderful for children. Two outdoor showers are part of the association. We are located close to Ogunquit beach and the Marginal way. 2 Beach chairs and boogie boards provided. Free wifi Limited to 3 occupants, property is non smoking inside and out (beach)

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

Little piece of heaven.

  • 4 of 5

I love my days at Moody Beach in Wells. The property in clean and comfortable even though quite small. The one negative would be the close proximity of the cottages .

Magical location, adorable cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Sweet, lovely, clean, freshly and beautifully renovated tiny cottage right on the beach. We were there in off season, which meant we had the beach practically to ourselves. The cottage is truly tiny: there's a Murphy bed (very comfy and easy to work) for sleeping, and you have to move the loveseat over by the windows in order to have room for the bed at bedtime. The table and chairs fold and stow away too. We had a learning curve figuring out what rhythm and placement of furniture suited us, but we figured it out and all was very well. Amazing how many modern conveniences are tucked into this tiny space. And it is very pretty, peaceful and beach-y and basically perfect. Nothing musty, everything smells good (and no weird artificial fragrance products in the linens etc -- that's definitely excellent!). There's electric heaters if you're chilly. The shower works well, even the dishes are attractive. But most of all there is nothing like having Moody Beach right outside your door. If you want a touch of luxury combined with a modest and very workable retreat, this is your place. The owner is responsible and a pleasure to work with. Really top-notch. We are recommending it to friends and hope to return soon!

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.
