About David Gamblin
We love Maine!! We Live in Massachusetts and come to Maine all the time. Having 80 Atlantic to come to as a getaway, has been great. We make a cup of coffee in the mornings, cross the street and watch the sunrise on the beach. Relaxing!!
David Gamblin purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why David Gamblin chose Wells
My family and I have vacationed in Wells beach for countless summers. We rented over a dozen different properties. All the properties we rented required us to pack all our beach gear in the car, fight the traffic and cross our fingers we would find a parking spot. If we could find a spot, it was often the typical $15/day. Then we would load all our 'beach gear' on our shoulders and make the walk to the beach. At times it was frustrating. Bathroom breaks were always an adventure. When we decided to purchase a home in Wells, we wanted to be right by the ocean. 80 Atlantic Ave was perfect. It had a crosswalk for the kids at the end of the driveway and direct access to Public Way #2 (No walking up or down Atlantic Ave to reach the nearest Public Way). Bathroom calls were no longer a problem and anything we forgot to bring with us was just across the street. 80 Atlantic is also extremely close to Wells Beach 'Center.' If you want a newspaper or a snack, the convenience store is right there. If the kids want to go to the arcade, get an ice cream or visit the candy store, they are right there. On top of all this, the property has Maine marsh views from the back and ocean views from the front.

Perfect location, excellent stay!
This property is located on a quiet back road that runs parallel to the ocean. Our walk from front door to the water was less than 60 seconds. The bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen & furniture were all very clean, had a “homey” feel and everything we needed was available. The owner is very nice & quick to respond to all of our messages regarding little things like parking & trash, etc. I would highly recommend this house for a stay in Maine! Close to everything & very “peaceful” vibe overall. September was a little cool weather-wise, but it’s not overly touristy which is what we loved the most.
So close to the Beach !
Our family really enjoyed this property. The proximity to the Beach was very appreciated with young kids and the house was full equipped.
Looking forward to coming back !
Great stay! Would do it again!
Clean, neat and a great location.
Great house and location!
We loved our stay! The house was great for us, having 3 young children the location was perfect for trips back and forth to the beach!
Loved everything about this property. It was exceptionally clean, beautifully decorated and had everything we needed for our stay. Having a washer and dryer available was a nice bonus and it’s closeness to the beach was ideal. The only drawback was one bedroom did not have windows and was very warm at night but there was a fan available. We had 4 people staying which was ideal, may have been tight with 6. We would definitely rent this property again!
If you like staying super close to beach, this is the place
Wells is situated just minutes from Ogunquit and Kennebunkport. It is just an hour from the fabulous Freeport shopping outlets and 30 mins from the Kittery shopping outlets. There are several antique shops in the area as well. Take a trolley ride through town or to Ogunquit. Mini-golf right up the road. The beautiful harbor is at the end of the street with fishing off the jetty. The arcade and ice cream shop is within walking distance. A true family beach. York Beach is a short drive as well to visit the famous Goldenrod where they have been making salt water taffy for over 100 years. The seafood restaurants in the area are fantastic, for a quick bite or an elegant intimate dinner for two.
Other Activities: whale watching, mini-golf, outlet shopping
