We have spent many weeks at the Seagull, first as renters, then as owners of one of the smaller condos, but we have always admired the luxury townhouses. These offer a spectacular view of the salt marsh and of Wells Beach in the distance – almost exactly 1 mile away. On a clear day, the view is really spectacular. The townhouses offer great accommodations with four-bedroom spaces (three on the third floor and one on the fourth floor loft), but their downside is the significantly longer walk to the pool and hot tub. However the hike up the hill is good exercise and we don't mind. the townhouses are perfect for bringing up an extended family or several of your friends given all the bedroom options. The bedrooms themselves are a bit on the small side, but let's face it you don't come to Wells to spend time in your bedroom. All the attractions of Wells are readily available, with a short drive on mile road down to the beach and lots of great places to eat. Just be prepared for the summer traffic. Not quite as bad as the Cape but not too much better either. If you love Wells is much as we do, and you're bringing up a big group of people, there's nothing quite like these big townhouses.
One suggestion if you're interested. The townhouses will be booked solid by June 15th, so don't wait and make your reservation before that. Mid season (spring) and off-season rates are much more affordable than the prime season ($3000 a week!). But again It's all just supply and demand, and given how many people can stay in one of these units (sleeps eight fairly comfortably and if you bring a blowup bed, you could probably stretch this to 10), the $3000 a week number is still in our judgment a good value and competitive with anything in the area – and actually quite a bit cheaper than comparable space on Wells beach itself where a house like this might go for $5000 a week. Seagull also has many smaller units also if you don't need this much space. The front desk is now better organized and consistently helpful.
