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.

Wonderful vacation spot
My family and I enjoyed ourselves very much in this rental. Very nicely decorated and maintained, enough space for the three of us and a few day guests who passed through the area. We loved the easy access to the beach & availability of sand toys and chairs. We would highly reccommend this rental! Can’t wait for our next trip :)
Great Location and Home
The house was very clean and close to the beach. This was my first time in Maine and I will definitely be back.
Home Away From Home
I recently enjoyed a nice, quiet week at this first floor 2 bedroom unit. It's conveniently located just across the street from a sandy path to Wells Beach. The property is very clean, comfortable and the owners provide just about anything you would normally need at your own home (wi-fi password, outdoor grill, washer/dryer in the basement, outdoor faucet to wash off sandy feet, kitchen, central vacuum, cleaning supplies, front porch, back porch and deck). I would definitely recommend staying at this property. The owner is very responsive and kind. Thanks David!
Convenient to the beach, comfortable and clean. Also nice view of the Marsh.
We enjoyed our girls weekend at this house. It was comfortable and clean. Beds were comfortable and we spent a lot of time on the enclosed porch. Parking can be tricky, but we managed. Also, there was a family upstairs who were quite noisy when the kids woke up at 6 am every day. A lot of floor creaking from constant walking, running and jumping. Overall, it was a nice stay though.
Great location and everything you need
We stayed for a couple of days and thoroughly enjoyed the property. It is clean, with comfortable beds, and all the amenities, including all the stuff you need in the kitchen or on the beach. Four can stay here very confortably, but six would be a little tight. Wonderful location, steps from the beach. Everything was perfect, except perhaps for the shower, which did not have much hot water!
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
