This newly built house is a gem. It has panoramic views of the beautiful marsh along with views down Moody Beach. The bedrooms have 1 king bed (master bedroom w/ full bath), 1 full bed, one queen bed, single bed and loft single bed in one bedroom and a loft bed in the last bedroom. There is a full size futon and a twin trundle bed on the third floor (which can be opened to a king size bed). The open concept layout on the first floor makes gathering easy and comfortable. The kitchen has new upscale appliances. There is a 1/2 bath on the first floor. The second floor has 3 bedrooms on it and 2 full baths. There is a full size front loading washer and dryer set up in one of the 2nd floor bathrooms. The third floor has an amazing family room with a Tv/vcr/dvd. It has absolutely the most gorgeous ocean views that you can imagine. There are 2 bedrooms on the third floor with a full bath. The house is great for one family or two to share together. The walk to the beach is 0.2 miles (2/10 of a mile). There are 7 televisions throughout the house, along with music, and a WII unit w/games. Linens and towels are not included in the rental.
I went to the Home Away site to look back at the house and maybe check out dates for 2017, and saw the review from some very unhappy man. We found the house fine. We stayed at the house last summer (2015) from Sept. into October and were so happy with the peace and quiet that we came back again this year. I can't speak to the upstairs DVD player etc. as we spent our time out on the beach or walking on the rocks or just hanging out together and enjoying the quiet sounds of the marsh or ocean waves. All the stuff we did use was in working order (downstairs tv, dvd, internet ) and the place was clean...no smell. The salt spray has affected a couple of the third floor windows where the boys slept but that did not make the space uncomfortable as there was plenty of airflow even on the one night that was kind of "toasty." All in all a nice place to stay.
Upon entering the unit for the first time we were overcome with the smell of WET DOG!! We went to the bedrooms and it was even more concentrated!! My sister and wife spent the first night of our "vacation" washing ALL THE LINENS due to the overpowering smell. This was quite a surprise due to the fact they advertise "no pets". The dryer broke during the process and Pat and Amy Moody charged us $180 for the repair of the dryer. There was no substantiated evidence of us breaking the dryer and even Pat himself claimed "This could have been a problem from before". I am in the process of securing an attorney to reclaim my illegally withheld funds. Also, the "fire pit" in the backyard is non-functional so this was also misleading in the photos. The internet was non-functional and we had to contact Pat Moody to rectify the situation that took about 3 hrs of him being in our personal space. The landscaping on the property was overgrown with prickly bushes that you constantly were rubbing up against. The downstairs toilet did not flush and forget about the claims of a DVD player or other useful items for the vacation. I have rented from VRBO in the past in the US and other countries (you can check my history). This by far was the worst experience I ever had with this site. I feel so passionately about protecting others from renting this property that I was compelled to write this review. I had to beg and plead with Amy and Pat to send me my portion of the security deposit (less the $180 that they illegally held back). The check has now cleared so now I feel I am in the clear of writing this review. I know there are many rental options in the Moody Beach area and I hope that this "luxury home" will be removed from the VRBO site due to false advertising and poor customer service.
Just returned from our week at the most amazing beach house! There were 10 adults, some couples and some singles and everyone had their own space. When we arrived were in awe of the amount of space that our family would enjoy and call home for the next 7 days. Our family vacations in Wells every year and come from New York, Louisiana and Illinois. This home exceeded every expectation and we have already scheduled to return next year. We loaded up the fridge and counters with food and ate every meal together.
Plenty of room for all of us to eat together, play cards or board games.
Walking to Public Way 3 was easy and walking to the rocks to watch the sunrise was even easier.
Trust me, you won't regret vacationing here. Amy and her daughter were so very gracious and attentive and we look forward to many more years of reuniting with our loved ones in this beautiful home.
This house is perfect! The house is new, super clean and there is enough place for a group of adults! Also, there is an amazing sunset view in the backyard.
The owners, Pat and Amy were very kind and were available if we needed to.
It was a close walk to a beautiful Moody Beach.
Everything was better than expected and we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!
We stayed at this house last year and never wanted to leave! We had 2 couples and 7 kids.Besides house beautiful, the layout is fantastic for beach living & there's room for everyone to have their space. My favorite space was the kitchen - it's HUGE with tons of counter space & every tool you'd want, and it's wide open to the dining/living room so I didn't feel 'stuck in the kitchen' while preparing meals. We ended up eating all meals at the house cuz it was so comfortable & convenient & easy with the kids. When not at the beach, the kids stayed quiet & busy either in the 3rd floor playroom playing video games or watching movies or tv, in the back patio/pit area, or playing in the cul-de-sac -- that made my life easier too! SHORT walk to beach with the little ones - PRICELESS! 3 1/2 baths meant no lines for the toilet or shower. Evening cocktails on the screened porch was my personal favorite - so serene to overlook the Rachel Carson preserve in back of the house & see the deer romp by, and hear the ocean crashing in front! There is no air conditioning on the first floor, but there is almost always an ocean breeze that crosses through the house (A/C units are in the bedrooms). I'd definitely stay here again!
Our local area (Wells, Moody, Ogunquit, &Kennebunkport) are towns with beautiful beaches, family fun and entertainment and ease to visit other towns in the area. There are beach games (4th of July week), art, restaurants, mini golf, FANTASTIC Broadway shows at the Ogunquit Playhouse, shopping and a whole lot more. The area is perfect for 2 people alone and families alike. This home has the beauty of the beaches and the tranquility of the Rachel Carson Wildlife Reserve in the backyard. There is a local trolley stop nearby the house which can be used to transport you throughout the town.
