Nice location

  • 3 of 5

This property was very nice, and the resort where it is located is lovely, friendly and close to everything. The property itself, although it was large and clean had some issues. The first being the fact that two of the bedrooms did not have curtains (only blinds and sheers) and therefore we were all awake by 6 am every morning. This is despite previous reviewers complaining about the same issue and the property owner promising to fix it two months ago. As well this property is advertised as having internet access and there was none. We spoke to the property manager about this, he claimed that there was wifi, which was not true. It made our stay difficult as we did not have access to email and could not conduct any research about activities. Otherwise we enjoyed the property, but if we return we will choose to rent a cottage rather than the apartment.

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

I was looking for a place with 2-3 bedrooms and at least 2 baths that could accommodate 3 couples and this place fit the bill. The condo is very nice and spacious and clean. It is in a good location - central to beaches restaurants etc. it is also close to the pool and hot tub and had a small outside deck attached.

On the down side, the bedding left something to be desired. The mattresses were not comfortable and the pillows were all flat - I called them pancake pillows. In addition to the sheets and towels you really need to bring your own pillows to be at least a bit comfortable. In addition there was about 1/2 roll of toilet in each bathroom so plan to go up the road to the supermarket pretty much as soon as you arrive

Owner's Response: First and Foremost we are happy you enjoyed your stay on the property! We try every year to improve our property; this past year we purchased a new sofa/pull out with an upgraded mattress. We have also purchased all new pillows for the home. Unfortunately what we find is folks that stay in the unit like our pillows more than their own and often leave behind their pillows like a Yankee swap! We try and provide medium density pillows which provide support and hopefully comfort! I know when we travel we often bring our own pillows to insure we don't miss a wink! Our Beds are all less than 2 years old and are commercial grade mattress's. We include mattress covers for cleanliness and safety of our guests. I visited the property right after the last departure to insure the mattress's hadn't been damaged in a recent stay. Although I like my side of the mattress firm; my lovely wife likes her side soft. :) I can see how any mattress wouldn't meet everyone's criteria! Hopefully these two points will help future travelers as we make our way through a great summer season! Thanks again for your review and comments!

Friendly Community

  • 3 of 5

Beach Dreams was a very friendly community; the rental’s appearance was nice but could use some much needed improvements.

Some improvements owner should consider are:

1. Curtains for the bedroom windows; every morning of our vacation we were awake by 5:00 AM because there was nothing to stop the sun from coming in the windows, (the small bedroom did have curtains) the king size bedroom had shears so we were able to hang blankets and towels over the curtain rods to block some of the light; the queen room only had mini blinds so sleep wasn’t an option after sunrise. Room darkening shades or curtains would be an option.

2. They made a new entrance into the rental BUT the heating unit was sitting on the floor along with drywall debris and screws! With a small child, this could have proved to be dangerous.

3. There was no light at the top of the outside stairs which made coming home after dark a safety hazard and it was very difficult to unlock the doors with no light.

4. Some of the mini blinds need to be replaced because they are broken.

5. There was no rain gutter, the night we stayed home and cooked on the grill it poured down rain half way through cooking; with no rain gutters the water ran off the roof onto the grill and the cook. The grill was electric which could have been “shocking”.

6. The mattresses’ in the king and queen bedroom could be addressed. They were uncomfortable and with the issue mentioned in #1, the bedrooms were not relaxing.

7. The bathroom near the king/queen bedrooms did not have a complete towel rack. It had a broken rack that was unusable.

8. The one kitchen chair closest to the outside door, the arms came apart and needs to be repaired. It was put back together and worked fine.

9. The dishwasher was not secured, the first time we loaded it, the entire machine tipped forward.

There were some positives:

1. The unit was very spacious, 3 bedroom 2 bathroom rentals were difficult to find.

2. Nicely equipped kitchen.

3. The washer and dryer came in very handy.

4. The people in the community were very friendly, from the owners to the security people to the other renters.

5. The pool and hot tub were wonderful.

6. We enjoyed our stay and would most likely seek out to say at Beach Dreams again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful and thorough review. We strive to keep our renters happy and every bit of feedback helps! After your departure we visited the unit to check on the many items you have listed; As you have mentioned we have a very spacious unit. The furniture is all new within the past 1-5 years and is in great shape. I checked each of the two bedrooms facing the pool area and found all of the windows to have mini blinds and curtains. We understand the sun can be strong at this time of year and could shine through the mini blinds and curtains. Although this is the first time we have heard this feedback we are in the process of changing out any damaged mini blinds this week to insure they block out the light throughout the unit. The towel bar in the bathroom is actually a towel hook; we removed the towel bars a few years back as folks continued to place too many towels on the bars. The hook seems to work! We also check and re-checked the furniture; Everything seems to be in working order. Lastly as a 2nd floor home we are not allowed to have a gas grille on our deck. We did quite a bit of research and found the electric grille you mentioned for use on a wood deck. The alternative is to have a gas grille on the grass at the bottom of the entrance which we thought was a great deal more problematic for folks visiting the unit. The grille is made by Webber or Charbroil; We had a GFI outlet installed on the deck for safety. The grille is rated as one of the top electric grilles in the market and many folks have asked us for purchasing information for their own purchase. Rain and water isn't a concern as long as you don't take it for a swim in the pool! We also took your review to heart and had an additional solar light installed on the deck of the new entrance. We thought the addition of the entrance was helpful to our rental guests instead of having to pass through the club house on their way in and out of the unit. thanks again for your time and review!

beach dreams

  • 4 of 5

The condo we rented was beautiful and met our needs perfectly. The location was convenient. We had a very big problem accessing the property. There were two cars and they only gave us one gate pass. Therefore we were not able to do things independently. Also, when we requested to be "buzzed" in, we were scolded. Really? The managemnt did not make us feel welcome and quite the contrary. Every time we entered or left the property we anticipated a problem with the security guard. Kind of took the fun out of it. I am planning to go back to main for a weeks vacation this summer. Not sure where we will be staying.

Thanks

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the feedback. Because of issues we had last summer with guests needing to get buzzed into the unit, we have added another entrance that goes directly from the outside into the apartment. The gate pass will still be needed at the gate, but will no longer be needed at the unit itself. We are so sorry for the inconvenience and hope this helps future renters. Thank you.

Spacious Condo in Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a trip to Wells Beach, Maine and stayed in this penthouse condo. The listing photos were very accurate in describing the property. The condo is very spacious with three bedrooms, a large kitchen, and 2 large dining areas. The living area is very roomy with a fireplace and a balcony with a grill.

The property was clean and well-maintained, and we were close to all the local attractions.

We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others. It was a nice, secure community with many amenities.
