About Gray Hirshfield
I have been coming to Wells Beach since I was born. My family has had property at the beach since the early 1900's. My grandfather was a lobster man in Wells and Ogunquit. He originally worked from a dory out of the old wells harbor across from the Wells fire house. (Now gone) Wells Beach Maine is my happy place, I am sure it will be your's too!
Why Gray Hirshfield chose Wells
I grew up coming to Wells Beach in the summer. My mother and grandmother also came to Wells. Wells is wonderful all year round. I now appreciate spending quiet time by the fire during the winter. And walks on the beach that I have almost all to myself. Wells is a family place where people return year after year and neighbors all know each other and look out for one another.
What makes this House unique

The listing and photos were accurate. Gray was extremely responsive, her emails were friendly, she was very accommodating and we would absolutely rent from her again. There were 8 adults on this trip and the house was great. Never felt crowded, had everything we needed and was a very short walk to the beach!
Had a great week at the Flip flop house.It had lots of space for 6 adults and a toddler. Nicely stocked with equipment. Back porch offered great views of the marsh.Quiet a d peaceful! Beach a short walk across the street .Gray and her family very responsive and easy to work with.
This house is better than a five star hotel. Excellent location, always very clean, and very comfortable. The owner goes above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect for our week. We always have an amazing time and create wonderful memories for our families.
Thank for your kind and generous review. We love to host you and your family at the Flip Flop. You treated the house just like it was your own.
Damage deposit refund???
In the 30 years we have rented in Wells we never had a damage deposit not refunded. We rented from one family for 25 years and they did not ask for a damage deposit & complimented us on the cleanness of the property on our departure. I could not believe what I read and had majority of the Damage Deposit withheld. When I sent my rebuttal to the owners claim, she acknowledged in an email what she claimed was damaged preceded our stay. I asked her to add her response to the VRBO message board and have not heard from her. Followed up by pictures of how the condition was of the floors were when we left. Pictures which I question, showed a few strains of hair on a bathroom floor. This caused 2 extra hours?? of cleaning by the cleaners. During the week when we swept we constantly swept up dog hair. Which makes me question the job the cleaning crew did prior to our arrival.
Prior to leaving the bathroom & kitchen counters were washed down and floors swept by us. The cleaning crew showed up early and we let them start cleaning, at no time did they say anything about the cleanliness of the property. They did mention that towels needed to be cleaned and returned. There was maybe 2 towels, one blue towel was left hanging in the master bathroom when we arrived, along with the clogged toilet I had to pull a large ball of toilet paper out of so it wouldn't over flow. The cleaners said they would clean the towels. Was that the 2 hours extra cleaning?
Unfortunately for us the family we rented from for years sold their Wells Beach properties after their parents passing.
The rating for the stay is for the whole experience and the dealing over the damage deposit has soured our vacation. I am not sure if the owner is being told a story by the cleaners but as of today the Damage Deposit funds have been held back based on erroneous information. Someone profited at our expense for a fabrication.
Truly home away from home!
We absolutely loved staying at your house. It was so easy to just walk to the beach to go for an early morning run or a beach expedition. Your house is beautiful. Plus, you have thought of everything...from a fully stocked kitchen to plenty of beach toys. We couldn't have asked for more for our family reunion. Thanks for everything!
Serene sea get away
Nice home nice people to deal with. Beach is not right out back of home like pictures made it seem, but it is very close
