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 come in the dead of winter and at the peak of summer
David Gamblin purchased this apartment in 2014
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 $10/day. Then we would load all of '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 was perfect. It had a crosswalk at the end of the driveway for the kids 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 or get an ice cream its just a short walk. On top of all this, our home has Maine marsh views from the back and ocean views from the front.
So close to the beach, yet without the huge price tag of an on beach rental. The house is a short drive from specialty shopping in either Ogunquit or Kennebunkport. The Maine Kittery Outlets are just down the highway from Wells. Mini golf is available in Wells and a public transportation trolley can take you all over town
Our family really enjoyed this property. We were back and forth from the beach all day without the hassle of driving or carrying much stuff. Having beach chairs, umbrella's etc. for our use was definitely a plus. The apartment was spacious and living room comfortable. Loved having the clothes line and laundry downstairs for our use. Our host was very helpful and friendly as well. Just keep in mind you have to clean the unit before you leave. This always takes longer than you think.
My sister and I had a lovely long weekend in this rental. The house was cute and we loved the location right across from the beach access. We really enjoyed Wells - the beach was beautiful and it was conveniently located without feeling as crowded or touristy as York Beach. The owner was very helpful and quick to respond to all communications and concerns. Would definitely consider staying here again!
Our stay at 80 Atlantic was wonderful. I miss the cheery yellow house, and your location is ideal. One of my favorite memories was getting up and walking out on the beach to see the sunrise. I doubt we would have done it, if we had to walk farther, and gotten up earlier. The living room was extremely comfortable, and the beach decor was a nice touch. The kitchen was stocked with everything we could ever need. I could go on and on. We had a fantastic vacation! The only suggestion I can come up with would be to post the garbage pickup and recycling dates on the fridge. The neighbor was happy to pass along the info.
Thank you for sharing your home with us!

The property was really quite comfortable. The patio, beach access and breeze through the house made it very enjoyable. You had a lot of nice touches throughout the home.
