About Stephen Pompeo

We love the beach and ocean this very quiet private end of Wells Beach at Wells Beach and Harbor.

Stephen Pompeo purchased this townhome in 2003

Why Stephen Pompeo chose Wells

We love this home because we believe it is at the best section of Wells Beach. We are at the end of Atlantic Ave. at the Jetties. We have a large property, an acre of dune out to Wells beach so it is very quiet and private where we are, very unusual for the Wells Beach area! We have loads of parking. We have a small family harbor beach next to our house with no waves very safe for small children and quiet. Yet we have our own private path on our property that leads out to Wells beach and the large beach with waves good for body surfing, surfing, walking etc...The jetty offers excellent opportunity for fishing, we catch fresh striped bass often. Kayaking is great in Wells Harbor too! We often see seals in the harbor from our property!

What makes this townhome unique

Quiet large private property with an acre of dune out to the beach. Our own private path to the beach. Fishing, kayaking, beachcombing right from our home. Wells harbor is a great place to kayak! You can also ride the waves with the kayaks. We are situated right in between Ogunquit (5 minutes) and Kennebunkport (10 minutes) and a short distance to York and Kittery (great outlet shopping). Portland is about a 35 minute drive and is like a 'Little Boston'. Amtrak Downeaster train station to Boston and Portland is in Wells.

Magical family reunion/vacation in Wells Beach

  • 5 of 5

The location of this house at the end of Atlantic Avenue could not be better. We have visited Wells Beach most years after Labor Day for about 10 years. This was our first experience right on the beach, and we absolutely loved it.

We loved taking our granddaughter (age 2) down the private path to the beach and watching her pure delight playing there. We loved pushing her in her stroller around the parking lot in the early morning and early evening, looking at the boats in the harbor and the birds, and feeling the gentle breeze.

The house has plenty of room to spread out - there were 5 adults and one child in our family, plus we had a couple as guests one night. There are 2 and 1/2 bathrooms - we all had privacy. It was larger than it looks in the pictures.

I am pretty much a clean freak and I was comfortable in this house. It is very well maintained, invites you in, and you have everything you want or need to relax. The owners responded quickly when I had a couple of questions.

My family recommends this house for a wonderful gathering place. We had a couple of meals in, but we really enjoy going to Billy's, Hobbs' Harbor House, Federal Jack's, Fox's Lobster House at the Nubble, and anywhere to sample lobster rolls.

Thank you, Kim and Stephen. You have something really special here.

Fall Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay and how close it was to the beach. The unit felt like a home, well appointed with everything we needed. There was a lot of room to spread out with 7 women. The 2 bedrooms and 3rd floor bedroom were spacious. We loved the outside patio with table and chairs as well as lounge chairs and grill. The weather was pretty warm so we were able to enjoy the outside space. A few of us even used the outside shower on a warm day. The best part was our morning and evening walks on the beach. Kim and Steve were great about getting back to us with any questions. All of us are looking forward to coming back next year.

Wonderful Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

Windsong Unit 2 was a great rental. The property was clean and spacious. The kitchen was stocked with every necessary utensil. It was quite convenient to have 2 and 1/2 bathrooms. We enjoyed the yard, eating outside on the large picnic table almost every night.

The location was ideal, a private path through the backyard led to the large beach. It made it very easy to run back to the house with young children. A small beach off of the nearby parking lot was also perfect for the children.

Kim and Stephen were very easy to work with. Kim gave me her cell phone number to text her if I needed. Although they were next door, we had complete privacy. It was a wonderful family vacation and we are looking forward to repeating it next year.

Clean and quiet paradise

  • 5 of 5

Easy access to the beach. There is a little beach at the marina perfect for young kids and another path for the bigger beach. We went once to the "big" beach but we prefered the small one next to the marina. We also used the kayaks from the beach house once we found the life jackets :)

Perfect location, we had wonderful temperature so we were able to eat outside every day.

The kitchen is well equipped and we loved that there is hot water in the outdoor shower !

Kim is very available to help, she answers very promptly to her text messages.

We will be back next year !

Perfect location, quiet and convenient.

  • 5 of 5

The home is in excellent condition. The amount of beds and baths worked out perfect for our large family. Even though we had a couple of very rainy days, we felt very comfortable and at home just relaxing inside. Love the area and access to beaches.
