About this listing

Just steps from beautiful Wells beach and recently renovated, this quiet family-friendly home/neighborhood is a dream for any beach and food lover. Also within walking distance is an arcade, playground, ice cream, a restaurant, and gift shops. The grocery store, pharmacy, and many other restaurants/shops are a few minutes drive away. "The Gull" is fondly named by our grandparents, who saw a seagull sitting on the house during their first stay. If you have any questions, please ask anytime! Dave

Perfect location for Wells beach. Just a few steps from a beautiful beach and walking distance to the small quaint downtown. House was perfect for our family of 5 with extra space. Totally renovated inside, new carpet, flooring, big beautiful kitchen with everything you would need. Big back yard for hanging out and grilling. Would absolutely recommend this house.

David's home is absolutely lovely! Recently renovated with high-end quality appliances, new carpet, mattresses and furniture. Much more space than I anticipated for my family, we had plenty of space to spread out and relax. The home is on a dead end street that ends at the beach, literally a 30 second walk. Friendly neighbors with lovely homes as well, the beach was quiet, clean and beautiful!

Fun and Relaxation on One of Maine’s Best Beaches Our stay at this newly-updated Maine beach house was the perfect escape for our young family of four. The rooms were spacious and comfortable (we could have easily fit another family with us), perfect for lounging, reading, playing games, and stretching out after a day on the beach. The kitchen is fully updated, with a new fridge and a new, highly efficient electric stove. There are ample supplies, and even more ample counter space, for preparing and enjoying meals (a two-minute drive from the house will get you to Hannaford’s). There’s a warm, well-lit sun-room with cozy seating, and a backyard where our kids played Frisbee and sifted through the treasures they found on the beach. The beach is less than a block away at the end of a quiet side street. At high tide, you’ll encounter waves crashing against the seawall and shooting spray into the air, and at mid to low tide, a wide stretch of cool sand. The beach isn’t crowded, and gives plenty of access for sunbathers and swimmers, and there are lots of amazing tide-pools filled with sea life and a variety of beautifully textured and patterned rocks. A short walk down the beach (or the street at high tide), and you’ll find yourself in a small, cute town center, complete with fried seafood, ice-cream, and a great arcade. Within ten-minutes driving distance, there’s a range of great antique shops, some good pizza places, and the Wells Reserve at Laudholm, offering great access to open woods, fields, and beach. And don’t miss out on Congdon’s doughnuts, offering rich, delicious doughnuts, only a three-minute drive from the beach house! The owners were gracious, accommodating, and responsive. If you’re looking for a comfortable, clean, private family getaway with opportunities to relax and enjoy the glorious Maine coast, this is an excellent way to do it!

The place was beautiful and just a walking minute from the beach. It was updated since we booked and did not look like the pictures!! We couldn't believe how perfect and roomy it was. There was a roomy backyard band plenty of lawn chairs for our use. David was an excellent communicator and made the stay that much easier. We didn't get ton but the arcade was a few minutes walk and a grocery store and several restaurants a quick drive away. The bedrooms were extremely comfortable and cozy. An enclosed porch out front perfect for those chilly summer nights. Would love to make it up there again.
