This house is just as described. Very spacious, clean and bright. The location was perfect for us, as it was so close to family that we could walk to their house. Thanks for your hospitality, John!
We were a group of seven adults and we traveled to Kennebunkport for the Prelude. We decided to rent in Wells. The house was perfect for us! With 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, we all had plenty of space. It was immaculate when we went in, quiet neighborhood. The house was decorated nicely, everything in working condition. We enjoyed the house very much!
We had a great time at this house. We were three couples and a single adult and there was more than enough room for all. Each of us had our own room, but there were more beds if you have children or don't mind sharing. Everything needed was supplied as noted in the information. You do need to bring your own paper goods and laundry detergent and dish soap, but there was a starter supply. While we only ate breakfast at the house, the supplies were there if we had wanted to do more cooking. We enjoyed sitting around in the evening and talking or watching TV (There was one in each bedroom and the living room and kitchen.) The location was great. We did indeed walk to the beach but count on it taking a little longer than 10 minutes unless you are a power walker. It was also a short drive to many restaurants and shops. One of the couples was new to renting a house for vacation but was so impressed by the comfort and convenience that doing so again is being planned. John was very responsive to my e-mails.
We stayed here for the first time and we were happy with the location as well as the house itself. Plenty of space so nobody felt crowded (Split the house with two other families for a total of 10 people). The bedrooms were large (All had own AC's) and plenty of TV's for everyone's interests. The house comes with all the necessities you would need on a beach vacation and the driveway is very large for plenty of parking spaces. We chose to drive down to Moody Beach and drop off the kids with some family because the walk is about 10-12 minutes to the public access entrance. The owner as well as the property manager were responsive but we did not have any issues during our stay. I would definitely rent again as it was a pleasant experience. The only reason why I gave 4 stars were the carpets. The whole house is carpeted but they were dirty and stained. A good cleaning of the carpets and this place would get 5 stars.
Very nice home for a vacation. Lots of room close to the beach, if you don't mind a short walk. Moody beach is very nice and not crowded. Close to miniature golfing, ice cream and the zoo. House has a nice dining room and kitchen with a bar. Plenty of sleeping area and bathrooms. Everything worked fine in the house for a homey environment for the family. Only down fall was the mosquitoes!!, need lots of bug spray. When we stayed it was very dry and hot, its also close to a Refuge across the road. Everyone you met walking was very friendly, it was a great stay. (could of used a wall clock and a closeline for our beach clothes) But the house was everything it had in the listings. Would stay again.

This is our second year at this location and our family reunion was a great success partly because of this rental.
To be close to a wonderful place like Moody Beach was a great plus - it's like having built in entertainment!
The kitchen/dining room set-up was perfect for large family dinners and the backyard let the kids run off steam that they didn't leave at the beach.
And a special shout-out to the property manager, Heidi.
With large family gatherings there are always questions or concerns and Heidi's responsiveness and dealing with whatever came her way was excellent.
