About Jason and Lee Talevi

We both grew up here on the southern Maine coast and after a 10 year stint in California we moved back to Wells to raise our two awesome kids. We now own and operate Sea-Vu West campground here in Wells which keeps us busy all summer. We love the vibe of the beach and the ebb and flow of the seasons and feel real fortunate to call Maine home.

Jason and Lee Talevi purchased this house in 2014

Why Jason and Lee Talevi chose Southern Coast of Maine

This house has a perfect combination of being close to the action of a beach town but feeling a world away when relaxing on the front porch watching the waves. The first night we stayed in the house it felt like we had lived here for years and we knew we had found the perfect home. Wells is a popular area where the beach houses tend to rub shoulders but this house and they way it sits on the 1/4 acre lot make you feel like your the only one living on the point. The sunrises over the ocean while lying in bed are unforgettable.

What makes this house unique

As an avid surfer I love watching the moods of the ocean, the changes in tide and swell and the diversity of ocean life that happens here off the point. Low tide sunny mornings find all the harbor seals sunning on the rocks out front. We call them 'tacos' and when you see them you'll know why.

Beautiful home - Perfect location !

  • 5 of 5

Lee was a fantastic host - we had a lovely time in Maine in early September 2016 with our two young children. The house was in a great location, close many great beaches, restaurants, and short drive to surrounding towns ( Kennebunkport/Ogunquit/Portland/...) . Lee was extremely responsive which made our vacation flawless and relaxing . Her house comes equipped with everything you need AND an amazing view of the ocean. Our family was very impressed and thought the house was much nicer than the pictures. I would definitely stay here again and look forward to coming back. Thanks Lee and Southern Maine !

Gorgeous home, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from the perfect trip to Wells. My husband, 7 month old baby and I shared this home with friends of ours who have 3 kids. The home fit all of us perfectly. We loved being on the water and so close to the sandy beach as well. The third floor offered an extra space for the kids to sleep and hang out in as well.

We have been to Wells before, I love the location, just minutes from Ogunquit and Kennebunkport. Lee was a great hostess. She met us at arrival, showed us around, gave us lots of dinner ideas as well as activities. We contacted Lee a few weeks prior to our arrival and she even set us up with a couple of amazing babysitters, so we got a nice night out as well. I strongly recommend this house, whether you are a couple, family, friends or just looking for a quiet getaway. We loved it!

Awesome, breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved this home. It is everything that is stated, photos are accurate. Owner was close by and meet us the day we arrived. Showed us around and provided recommendations for go to places. We loved the location also; in between two popular tourist areas. Quiet, but close to everything. We were a family of 8 adults, so the walk to the beach was no big deal. Portland was only a half hour away by car so we did visit the "big city".

Our first visit to Maine - we will definitely be going back.

(Already recommended this home to a friend)

The Perfect Maine Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week at this wonderful home and only have the most positive things to say about it - Lee met us upon arrival and the house was immaculate. I can go on and on about everything it has (all we had to bring in was groceries) but I'll leave this review to how it made me feel - relaxed and very much at home. We slept with windows wide open to hear the crashing waves, it's a very breezy and the rooms flow well and feel very substantial. The house is contemporary but has an old soul, it felt very classic to me. It's located perfectly away from the hubbub of Ongunquit but 5-10 minutes by car or about 30-45 minutes walking along the beach. I would love to return to this charming residence and southern Maine in the near future!! Thanks Lee, you are a lovely hostess!!

Best rental house experience

  • 5 of 5

I have rented roughly 10 vacation homes over the years. This is by far the nicest experience I have had. The home itself is lovely and spacious, furnished very tastefully with with a hint of beach home in the color palette but none of the kitsch that often accompanies this style. The home extremely well equipped with kitchen appliances, beach towels, spare batteries for the remote control...anything I needed during my stay I was able to find.

My experience with the owner, Lee, was also wonderful. The rental process went smoothly, and Lee even let me shorten the stay I had committed to (still 4 months in advance of our stay). She offered to leave coffee for us at the house since we were arriving late in the evening, and she came by the house the morning after our arrival to get us oriented in the house, give us restaurant recommendations (which turned out to be excellent), and let us meet her adorable French Bulldog, Munch. Too bad Munch didn't come as part of the rental too.

Beautiful Property - Amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

It wasn't until I was making arrangements to book this property for a second year that I realized I had never given a review! Totally remiss on my part.

My family and I stayed here at the end of the 2015 season and it couldn't have been a better trip. The owners Lee and Jason were absolutely lovely. Lee was SO nice and accommodating! She had wonderful recommendations for restaurants and activities - especially helpful with two small children! She was a delight to deal with from start to finish. We are so happy to be booking with them a second year in a row.

The property itself was PERFECT. Exactly as described in the pictures! We LOVED that it was situated on the rocky part of the beach. It was fun to explore during low tide with our older daughter. Then as the tide was coming in the sound of the waves and the rocks was so soothing and peaceful. It was an easy walk to several sections of sandy beach as well as the Wells Lobster Pound for fresh lobster, chowder, and other goodies. You can also drive and park at the sandy parts but we preferred the short walk. With in a short drive is the back entrance to Jake's restaurant - so you don't have to take route 1 and the Scoop Deck for ice cream!

As you can see in the pictures the home is beautiful. My husband and I loved the view from the master bedroom and fell asleep with the windows open listening to the ocean. We also loved sitting on the deck in the evenings with a glass of wine. SO relaxing. Another bonus of the rocky section is that there are few to no people sitting or walking in front of the home. Very private. My kids really enjoyed the rocky beach and running around the lawn.

The layout of the home is great for families. It is so large we were even able to bring out babysitter out for a few nights! A big bonus that she was able to stay on the third floor suite and have her own privacy.

Highly recommended overall! Can't wait to go back in a few months!!!!

Located directly on the Ocean within 5minute walk to sandy Moody Beach, or Crescent Beach and 10 minute walk to sandy Wells Beach. Easy walk or bike to shops, arcade, many seafood restaurants and lobster pounds and church service. Easy drive to endless activities; fishing, boating, antiques, shopping, water parks and amusement rides and much more. A short 30 minute drive to either Portland, Maine or Portsmouth, NH, two outstanding cities noted for their culinary excellence and classic New England vibe.
