About Bev Collins

Janet and Bev inherited this family beach house which our grandmother purchased in 1955.

We have spent more than 70 summers on Moody Beach.

Why Bev Collins chose Wells

This is the best location on the best beach! It where the ocean comes up in front of the house and the unobstructed view over the river in the rear, see our 4 decks.

What makes this house unique

Great house with amazing view!

  • 4 of 5

Very beautiful house! Amazing view of the ocean from the main room. Living room, dinning room & kitchen all open, with windows all around, facing the beach. Very cosy et comfortable. The location of the house is really amazing! The decks are incredible! There is one, facing the ocean, when you exit from the main room, with long chairs and with a dining table, chairs and umbrella. Two other decks, which are accessible from the upper lever of the house: one is facing the ocean and another (one level up) is facing the marsh. Very convenient to hide from the winds, depending from which direction they come from. The house was very clean and well equipped.

Areas that could be improved: the main bathroom: the lavatory faucets are very old (cold and hot water separate) and there is only a bath with no shower (which is located on the second level, beside two bedrooms -the master bedroom is on the 3rd level). So, to take a shower, you have to go on the ground level, beside the laundry room and the garage (cement floors) without a door to separate the laundry room/garage from the shower (only curtains). There is a second toilet beside the shower (no sink). So, it is not as convenient and comfortable as having the shower close to the bedrooms.

Other points that could be improved is regarding the beds that are not as firm as they should (might be time to replace the mattresses...). The blinds in the bedrooms, which are white, do not prevent the light from coming in the morning (mostly the ones facing the sun rise, like the master bedroom).

Despite these points, I would definitely recommend renting the house, for its location, cosiness & cleanness. No house is perfect (unless you set it up yourself!), but this one is worth renting!

Great retreat

  • 5 of 5

We rented for one week for a family gathering. Very comfortable, very clean and very well equipped. Close to everything. Quiet, just the sound of the sea which was at the bottom of the steps. We will definitely return.
