This house met all our needs during our stay in the area. It was clean ( which is most important) and contained more amenities then I expected. Thanks!

Wells Maine Christmas visit

  • 5 of 5

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!

Furnish Road was a hit with us!!

  • 5 of 5

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!

great house

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind review. We are happy you all enjoyed your stay. We are also happy to report that we have replaced that white carpet! We have beautiful new flooring on the first floor and have updated a couple of pictures on the Homeaway site (more pictures will be posted in the next few weeks). We hope that we will see you again in the future. All the best, John and Johanne

House Comes As Advertised!!

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your kind review. We are glad you enjoyed your time in Maine. You are absolutely right about that crazy white carpet! There is no time for deep cleaning between visits in the summer so by the end of the summer, the carpet does not look very fresh. Not to worry - the main floor white carpet is scheduled to be replaced before next summer. So we hope we will see you again next year. Wishing you all the best . John and Johanne

Maine vacation

  • 4 of 5

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.
