Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed at "the Gull" the first week of August 2015 and I was pleasantly surprised upon our arrival, do not let the word studio detour you from renting this place. Plenty of room and space it even had a loft for my kids to sleep in which they loved. The deck views are the best part, amazing, eating your dinner outside and watching the boats come and go. I have never rented a place that stocked everything so well, they even gave you laundry detergent! You literally have to pack your clothes and food (they even provide spices) and everything else is there. The area is beautiful and peaceful. I spend the weekend with my significant other and then he left and I had my 2 children ages 4 and 15 for the rest of the week, that provided a little more of a challenge to find things that they both wanted to do. I recommend a day trip into boothbay. We found a ton of seaglass down at pebble beach and woke up early to see that sunrise, which is a must. Nicest people to rent from, I forgot my charger there and they mailed it back to me no charge. Trust me you will not be disappointed with this rental!!!

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful time here, spacious and comfortable. Outstanding views from the deck. Very close (minutes - literally) to some great dining spots and lots of lobster shacks. Great place to relax and watch the tides. We'll definitely be back here. Owners are very accommodating and ready with all sorts of information and suggestions. --- Patrick and Winnie

The staff was attentive to our overall needs and made us feel at home. The accommodations were perfect for us. The price was right. Tim gave us a free night, much appreciated! Definitely would recommend to others and would return.

A+ on this one!

We absolutely LOVED The Gull! The views were amazing, the owners were friendly, and it was everything we needed! The kitchen came fully equipped with everything we needed to prepare enjoyable meals. The location was perfect, within walking distance to local restaurants and shops. We will definitely be back!!

Loved the location with sea sights from two directions.

  • 5 of 5

The studio apartment was just right for my husband and me. We loved the short walk to the pebbly beach and to the Cribstone Bridge. It was great to buy fresh-caught-and-cooked lobsters, cook up some veggies in the well-supplied kitchen and eat on the deck overlooking the ocean. Sure, other buildings obstruct a small part of the view, but we got used to it. The internet worked very well for us and we watched some of the many DVD's on the good-sized screen, and got a few more from the local library. There were even several speakers for good sound from the CD player. Tim is attentive to the wellbeing of his renters. The notebook has lots of good information. We hope to stay here again sometime and highly recommend it.
