About The Owner

Paul & I celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary on June 1st, 2010 and we chose to spend it at our house, 'My Tern'. We started coming to Wells Beach before we were married and have been bringing our kids here on family vacations ever since.

Why The Owner chose Wells

We've always loved coming here with & without the kids. It had everything, the beautiful long beach, fishing, boating, the jettie, great restaurants, golf, tennis, movies, theatre, even the 'Center' for the teens! Whether Spring, Summer or Fall we would not hesitate to spend our free time here.

What makes this house unique

We absolutely love our house, 'My Tern'. Mostly because of its location, the view of Wells Harbor, at the end of a dead end street, so it has privacy, yet the beach walk way is right across the street. And we love how the water comes right up to the property during high tide so we can take our kayaks right out from the house.

Fantastic Location and Home

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at My Tern. The house has everything you need to make you feel like you are right at home, including several board games for the family to play. The views of the marsh throughout the house are fantastic. We enjoyed fishing in the marsh, kayaking, and searching for crabs and other sea life. The beach is across the street and was an easy 1 minute walk with our 3 young children. If you know the Wells area then you know that the beach down by Forbes is not useable during high tide, this is not the case with the beach across the street, you have beach all the time. Paul, the owner, came by to make sure we had everything we needed. He was friendly and extremely kind. We will be booking this house again for sure!

Our happy place

  • 5 of 5

My Tern is our favorite place to stay. Comfortable, welcoming, beautiful setting on the tidal river. We spend lots of time on the patio in good weather, watching the birds and the tides. Easy access to Wells Beach if we want the waves. Very convenient location. Plenty of blankets for chilly weather, and plenty of pillows. Very accomodating hosts, thanks so much!

My turn at MY TERN!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just got home and we had a great week. Lots of family Ray and myself along with my 3 boys, 1 girlfriend and 1 5 year olds first trip ever to the ocean. The cottage is more like home away from home. Big, roomy, lots of sleep area, washer and dryer, huge bathroom and an awesome patio with a view. Didn't want to leave.. Counting the days till 2015.

What a refreshing surprise. Based on the previous review and description we were not sure what to expect. While the home is not fancy it was very comfortable. Everything was neat and clean. And the bathroom had been recently upgraded and beautiful, with a very nice sized shower. All needed kitchen equipment was available, and we enjoyed several meals in. Having the washer and dryer right there was a big plus.

The short walk to the beach (just across the street) and the view of Wells Harbor made for a very enjoyable trip. Our mornings were spent on the sun-porch with coffee enjoying the view.

Kayaking was very convenient, and if you have your own just put it in the water right there at the house. We were close to all of our favorite restaurants, and activities.

We had a few questions before our arrival and they were answered very quickly. We are hoping to go back again and again.

July 2010

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed here for the first time and overall it was a great house. The location couldn't be better with the Marsh views and the beach entrance directly across the street. Ample parking and a nice patio area for the kids to play and adults to enjoy the marsh view. Washer and dryer are a plus. This is "fairly" rustic compared to other houses we have stayed but that what we were looking for with kids. The house is clean, quiet and as I said terrific location. The only down side is there is only one bath with a small shower and no air conditioning. So bring extra window fans with extension cords.(July is hot!) I hope to return this year if I can get the time off.
