Our family of 5 really enjoyed the house. It had all the comforts of home. It was very clean and centrally located for all of our adventures around the area. We would stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

House was as advertised. Clean, comfy and well equipped.

The Beached Whale provided a super comfortable retreat to celebrate our anniversary. We honeymooned in Maine 25 years ago and had not been back to ME since.

Great space and clean!

Beautiful home, convenient location. Has everything you could possibly need. Bring k cups or coffee they have both keurig and conventional coffee maker with filters (did not find til day 2). I brought my own blender (that seemed to be the only thing missing). Deck and front porch allowed you to sit in sun any time of day. Ac and heat worked great. Tvs were smart and wifi was fast. Enjoyed showering outside every day. Nice floor plan, 3 bedrooms meant big enough for everyone. We locked ourself out and agency came to our rescue in a few minutes. Very responsive! We will definitely be renting soon again. Thank you for sharing your home with us, we made good memories there.

This gone was spacious, comfortable and centrally located to all our favorite Maine adventures! It is minimalist in furnishings and kitchen supplies. I’d like to see them stock the kitchen more and have more cozy spaces in the living room. There are no dressers in two of the bedrooms either.

This home had everything we needed and then some. We enjoyed the grill and the kitchen was well equipped. I found the home exceptionally clean and just a short drive to Wells beaches and the waterfront. I would highly recommend staying here and renting from Vacasa!

We stayed here for a mini vacation this past week. The home was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and stocked with everything we needed. Would highly recommend.
Sheri E. Apr 2022
The place is immaculate. Everything is high end, new and clean. A few issues - door wouldn’t lock initially, outdoor shower didn’t work (big bummer) and TV was a bit quirky. Management company was very responsive. We will definitely go back.
Manager response:
Hi Sheri, Thank you for taking the time to leave this review and share your kind words about our property. We sincerely apologize for the issues with the door, outdoor shower, and TV. Thanks so much for reaching out to us to allow us the opportunity to resolve them for you. You were amazing guests. If there is anything we can still do for you, please reach out anytime and let us know.

Wow, an absolutely perfect getaway with two of my best friends. We each had our own room and spent most of our time in the spacious kitchen/dining room. We did not leave the house all weekend. Had every we needed. Hoping to return next March!

The Beached Whale is a beautiful property with lots of space and has all the amenities you need for a comfortable and fun stay. It’s minutes away from stores, beaches, and the best Maine has to offer.

It was our annual Girl's-Weekend-Away and we had a wonderful time. The home was exceptionally clean, beautifully decorated and centrally located between Ogunquit and Kennebuckport. Instructions left within the home were clear and specific and suggestions for restaurants in the immediate area was very helpful. I would highly recommend this home to anyone and would happily stay there again in the future. Thank you for making these stressed-out moms very happy and relaxed.

We had a wonderful stay at the Beached Whale! Kitchen was stocked with pots, pans and kitchen utensils. Easy location! Lovely home and would come back in a heartbeat!
Bailey K. Jul 2021
This house is extremely clean and fresh - it’s very newly renovated and everything is very nice. The beds are very comfortable, the outdoor shower is lovely, tne fire pit was super nice. Donna the caretaker from Vacasa went above and beyond and was so nice, fast, and responsive! She went to the store and bought a coffeemaker (and filters!) for the house and left it on the front porch for me. My only complaint is that there’s no view, which is tough in Wells when the sunsets are so magnificent, and the next door neighbor’s property was a little creepy. Plus they broke ground on a house on the last day of our stay so you should anticipate construction.

The home was perfect and very clean. We were pleasantly surprised by how nicely decorated it was. There was a nautical theme throughout. The central air was probably the most important amenity during our trip as we hit a 2 day heat wave. In the evenings we used the deck and backyard for some great family time. This is our first visit to Wells. The beaches were very nice. We were not really sure how far from the water were were. It took us approximately 7 minutes to drive to the beach. We can't wait to come back!
