About David Gamblin

We love Maine!! We Live in Massachusetts and come to Maine all the time. Having 80 Atlantic to come to as a getaway, has been great. We make a cup of coffee in the mornings, cross the street and watch the sunrise on the beach. Relaxing!!

David Gamblin purchased this apartment in 2015

Why David Gamblin chose Southern Coast of Maine

My family and I have vacationed in Wells beach for countless summers. We rented over a dozen different properties. All the properties we rented required us to pack all our beach gear in the car, fight the traffic and cross our fingers we would find a parking spot. If we could find a spot, it was often the typical $15/day. Then we would load all our 'beach gear' on our shoulders and make the walk to the beach. At times it was frustrating. Bathroom breaks were always an adventure. When we decided to purchase a home in Wells, we wanted to be right by the ocean. 80 Atlantic Ave was perfect. It had a crosswalk for the kids at the end of the driveway and direct access to Public Way #2 (No walking up or down Atlantic Ave to reach the nearest Public Way). Bathroom calls were no longer a problem and anything we forgot to bring with us was just across the street. 80 Atlantic is also extremely close to Wells Beach 'Center.' If you want a newspaper or a snack, the convenience store is right there. If the kids want to go to the arcade, get an ice cream or visit the candy store, they are right there. On top of all this, the property has Maine marsh views from the back and ocean views from the front.

Great location and everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a couple of days and thoroughly enjoyed the property. It is clean, with comfortable beds, and all the amenities, including all the stuff you need in the kitchen or on the beach. Four can stay here very confortably, but six would be a little tight. Wonderful location, steps from the beach. Everything was perfect, except perhaps for the shower, which did not have much hot water!

Great Place / All the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The weather was not cooperative for the whole week, but we still had a great time. Very relaxing and spacious living. We were just a 2 minute walk to the warm sand and beautiful beach.

Awesome beach place

  • 5 of 5

This rental was everything promised and more. A great location steps from the beach. A short walk to shops and restaurants.

More restaurants and shops are a quick drive away. We were impressed by the wonderful beach y decor. The place was so clean and neat. Everything you would need to enjoy the indoors and outdoors was available. We especially enjoyed the sea breezes from the front windows and the back sun room. Three of us stayed comfortably for 2 weeks and did not want to leave. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a relaxing beach stay.

The property is a great vacation spot for beach lovers.

  • 5 of 5

The property is well kept and is very comfortable and clean. We rented both the top floor and bottom for our family vacation. We love the location (across the street from the public way and with in walking distance to the center). Our stay was in the middle of June and the weather was great.

I would ask if air conditioning is provided for visits later in the hotter part of the summer before booking. The owner is very easy to work with and responds to emails or phone calls promptly. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Great way to spend time at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression was how clean and uncluttered the rental was. It is very easy for 3 adults to spend time in without being in each other's way. The proximity to the beach, right across the road, is great. We could even hear the surf. This experience may have changed our years-old habit of B&Bs and hotels. The well stocked kitchen equipment made eating in easy and the area restaurants are the best.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and wished we could have stayed longer! Only steps from the beach, it was the ideal location to stay. The owners were quick to respond to my emails and there was a welcoming note on the fridge when we arrived. Loved that! The rooms were clean and neat, with ample space for all our needs. We especially loved the back room, where you could enjoy the marsh views. A quick walk brings you to shops and restaurants-no need to drive if you don't wish to. If you do, then additional shops and restaurants are within 5 minutes drive. We enjoyed our stay so much at the house that we are planning on a return trip next year.

Car: recommended

Wells is situated just minutes from Ogunquit and Kennebunkport. It is just an hour from the fabulous Freeport shopping outlets and 30 mins from the Kittery shopping outlets. There are several antique shops in the area as well. Take a trolley ride through town or to Ogunquit. Mini-golf right up the road. The beautiful harbor is at the end of the street with fishing off the jetty. The arcade and ice cream shop is within walking distance. A true family beach. York Beach is a short drive as well to visit the famous Goldenrod where they have been making salt water taffy for over 100 years. The seafood restaurants in the area are fantastic, for a quick bite or an elegant intimate dinner for two.

Other Activities: whale watching, mini-golf, outlet shopping
