“summer vacation”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2016

This was our 6th year at Chula Vista so you know that we enjoy going there! The house is kept in great shape and has a wonderful wraparound porch which lets you enjoy the ocean breeze. An added bonus is the location- just a short walk to the beach, stores, and Arcade. It's also the last house on a dead end street which means less noise and traffic. One thing I really appreciate is that it has a washer and dryer which can come in quite handy!As I mentioned before, this was our 6th year and we have enjoyed each one of them. The owner is a pleasure to work with and always gets back quickly if you have a question. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Owner's reply: Joanne & Kevin, Thank you very much for choosing to stay with us and for being part of the Chula Family! Blessings to you and yours!!

Absolutely loved this house. We stayed with 4 adults and 4 children and had plenty of room to enjoy our week by the beach. The colors in the house are bright and cheery and every room was found exceptionally clean. The short walk to the beach, arcade, candy store and ice cream was perfect. The wrap around porch is an extension of your living space. The location was ideal as we had other family members stay at the hotel, which was one block away. Mercedes also provided a parking pass for the lot on church street for a 3rd car, which was very convenient. We truly enjoyed a relaxing week with family!

Owner's reply: Tricia, We hit it off from the very first phone call! So happy to have earned your trust! Hopefully many memories were built! Peace and health always: )

“Family summer vacation”

Reviewed 31 Jul 2016

Have been renting in Maine with my family for the past 30 years. We chose Chula Vista this year and couldn't have been happier. Mercedes, the owner, was an absolute pleasure to work with. The house perfectly met the needs of our family, including our children and grandchildren. The location was perfect- right near Forbes, the beach and the arcade! We loved the wrap around porch.....which came in handy during the few very short rainstorms that we had. Otherwise, the weather and water were unusually warm and we enjoyed being at the beach and surfing in the water. We love this area and the house was teriffic! Great for big or extended families.

“Great family beach vacation!”

This place is really great! There is plenty of room and the accommodations are clean and comfortable. The location is perfect - a very short walk to the beach, so no need to drive. My family loved it here!

Owner's reply: Neil, I am happy that your family had a great experience! Thank you again for choosing to stay at Chula Vista! May you be well! Mercedes

Fabulous vacation at Chula Vista home on Ledge Rd! Loved the house with ample and clean accommodations for all ages (4 - 72!). Kitchen complete with lobster pots and plates with directions! Leisure evenings were spent on wrap-around porch. WALKED to the beach, restaurants, ice cream, arcade, and shops! Children and adults took long bike rides along seaside streets with minimal traffic, adults walked 2+ miles north and south along scenic vistas. The weather was delightful, the neighborhood very friendly. Our granddaughter summed up her vacation with the ultimate compliment "I want to move to Maine!" Grateful thanks for a fabulous week!

Owner's reply: Judie, Welcome to the Chula Vista Club! You are now an official member of our elite club :) The compliment from your grand daughter could not be more precious!!! I am truly humbled that your family chose to stay with us to celebrate your 70th birthday! 70 is the new 55 and with your beautiful spirit I wish you a happy and healthy year . FELIZ CUMPLEANO! May you and your family be blessed alway ! Mercedes

“Chula Vista in Wells Beach, Maine”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2015

My family and I spent a wonderful week in this comfortable and clean home. Short 5 minute to my favorite beach and the house was located at the end of a dead end street where there were trees and Birds singing for us. There was a lovely wrap around porch to sit out on and enjoy a cool breeze after being on a hot beach and stores and arcade in walking distance. Great home!

“We Love Chula Vista”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2015

We had vacationed in Wells for years, while raising our family. We have many friends and relatives in the area to catch up with, now that we have retired to Florida.This home was perfect to bring my son's family(wife and two teenagers) and my daughter's family,(husband and one teen and one tween) together. for beach and family fun. We had 7 nights of game playing in the living room with room for all, much entertaing on the wonderful wrap around porch, grilling on the large grill walking down to the center to do some gift shopping, taking the trolly for a ride around town and beaches, walking under the stars on the beach, or down to Forbes for an ice cream or fried clams (yum), We took a cloudy afternoon to enjoy Portland's Old Port. To be able to share these many memories is what we will always be thankful for. The first time I spoke to Mercedes I could tell this is the place I want ot be, She made me feel like we were friends all along.She has to be the easiest person I have ever dealt with in this kind of situation, she accommodated our every wish and could not do enough to make our vacation perfect.What a wise investment she has made in her young life, I know she will have many years of enjoyment there. I hope we get to come north again and share her home. God Bless You, The Fraize Family

Owner's reply: Woo Hoo!!! Thank you very much Stella for your beautiful review! I am truly blessed to have the Best families! I remain humbled by the heartfelt reviews that I receive! May God bless you and your family always!! Thoughtfully, Mercedes

“Family Haven By The Sea”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2015

We have been renting Chula Vista for several years now. The warm, inviting environment, the constant upgrades and the proximity to EVERYTHING Wells Beach has to offer has made this our "must go" place every summer! I love arriving each year and seeing all that has been upgraded/changed including in recent years new flooring, a new refrigerator and air conditioning in the master bedroom! We have a LARGE blended family(that means sometimes there is some squawking!) and with all of the bedrooms and bunk beds there is more than enough room for our immediate family of 8 and a couple of guests if we invite them up. I love that when I go down to the beach the cottage is just a 2 minute walk back to grab a snack, go to the bathroom or a grab a sweatshirt on a cooler day. I would highly recommend Chula to any family that loves to get away to the beach. This particular location has allowed me to escape and unwind more so than any other vacation spot- call it the beautiful sea air or quiet dead end street where I don't have to worry about the kids, but it has truly become our Ricciardi Haven! Cheri Ricciardi

Owner's reply: Dear Ricciardi/Heath Family, I am overjoyed with your 5 Star review, it put a huge smile on my heart!!! I am so happy that Chula brings your beautiful family and friends together to build happy memories!!! May your family always be blessed with much health, happiness and success! Thank you for your friendship! 😎 Mercedes

“Feeling at home”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2014

We stayed at Chula Vista for 1 week, 6 adults and 2 grandchildren (3 month and 2½yo) and had a wondreful time. The house is very comfortable, clean and in a quiet neighborhood. 2minute walk to the beach. Master bedroom is perfect for a young family with low age children. Everything was above our expectations. We strongly recommand the place. Finally, thanks to Mercedes who was easy to reach and helpful.

Owner's reply: Louis, thank you for choosing to stay with us! We remain truly humbled by your exemplary review! Thank you for taking such great care of everything and leaving everything spotless! Our doors will always remain open to you and your family. May your family have continued health and happiness! Mercedes
