About Shaina Beaudoin

Professional couple from the Northeast (Boston & New York) currently living in Atlanta with plans to retire to New England in the next few years.

Shaina Beaudoin purchased this house in 2013

Why Shaina Beaudoin chose Southern Coast of Maine

This home is perfect for enjoying the beach. Whether you want to walk, swim, surf or just kick back and relax. Nothing between you and the beach except for sand and dune grass. The "upside down" nature of the house means you have the best views from all living areas if you just want to relax in the living room or on the rear deck.

What makes this house unique

The home's location and layout is indescribable.

Car: recommended

House is located in a great spot, right on the ocean. Beach is very quiet with very little foot traffic. Lots of fantastic restaurants nearby including fine dining. House is located on the edge of the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge which you can visit and tour on Port Road in Wells, about 4 miles North on Route 1.

4 miles to Ogunquit, 6 miles to Kennebunk & Kennebunkport, 30 minutes to Portland, 50 minutes to Freeport for great outlet shopping. Only 90 minutes to Boston.

Great fish markets where you can buy lobster & clams and have them steamed for you. Bring the goodies home and sit on the deck staring at the ocean.

A short drive (50 minutes) takes you to Freeport, ME - the original Whole Town Outlet Mall with LL Bean and many other great shops.

Portland and its shops, restaurants, pubs and microbreweries are less then 30 minutes away. (But we actually have a microbrew pub 1.3 miles from the house - Fire & Brew.)

There is no better summer rental. Great beaches, great location and great local amenities make this the perfect rental for a peaceful getaway. Great spot for a family or for an adult only vacation. Very little traffic as house is way down near the end of Atlantic Avenue and the beach has very few people on it - no crowds at all. For the surfers, the surf is great - but this Maine and water can get chilly. We have been constantly upgrading the home for the past two years so if you return you will see new upgraded kitchen appliances and lots of new living room furniture. The bunk bed bedroom has been rearranged to be much better to use. More to come!

Great house and great location

  • 5 of 5

This house and its beachfront location were terrific in every way. The house is roomy and very well-equipped, with easy access to the beach. You can avoid Route 1 when you go to the grocery store or to the lobster pound, and that's a big plus. The views from the upstairs deck were excellent and having 4 bathrooms is very convenient if you have a crowd of visitors. The kitchen and appliances were modern and any utensil or tool was available. I would recommend this to family groups who want to spend time together, whether you want to go to the beach, dine together or just hang out.

THE beach house

  • 5 of 5

This house on the beach is very enjoyable! It was built and maintained with great loving care!

Because the living space is on the second floor we enjoy a great view of the ocean all day. The house is very clean, well furnished with everything we need. We also noticed the special care taken by the owners for their guests, for example every electrical switch has a tag identifying which light it turns on. All pillows and mattress pads were new and of excellent quality; the BBQ was new and there was even a spare tank.

We have enjoyed so much the place that we didn’t even bother going to the restaurant. We have also enjoyed the frequent visits from Jonathan, who in turn seemed to appreciate very much grandma’s banana cake. If you wish to have the banana cake recipe, just ask Carolyn Weller, and we will provide.

A wonderful week at the beach…

Jocelyne & Pierre, Montreal, Canada.
