About John and Sherry Livsey

John is an engineer and Sherry is a teacher. We have a fifteen year old son and a thirteen year old daughter. When we purchased and furnished this cottage, they were young and we wanted it to be our 'home away from home'. We still have toys, games, and movies suitable for young children as well as teens.

John and Sherry Livsey purchased this cottage in 2006

Why John and Sherry Livsey chose Moody

We chose this property because it was brand new at the time. The price was right and we loved that it is closed for half of the year so we don't have to think about it.

What makes this cottage unique

This property is the best of both worlds. It is a resort with on site amenities but it's close to beaches and fun attractions. We love that there is so much to do in Southern Maine, it's so fun to explore.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a wonderful time staying in our beautiful and cozy cottage. We went to the pools, the beach, The Egg and I for breakfast, the Maine Diner for dinnner -- both very yummy! We also enjoyed relaxing on the porch, playing scrabble, and reading. It was so peaceful, we didn't want to ever go home!

On our last day here, my boyfriend proposed to me and I said Yes!! We will never forget this vacation and hope to come back again next year for a full week. Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your wonderful cottage!

Family friendly, very clean

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd year at Beach Dreams and it just keeps getting better. We have small children, who love riding their bikes and swimming in the beautiful pools. The cottage is just the right size! The full kitchen and washer/dryer make it easy to pack and cook for a family all week. We'll definitely be back again next year!

Loved our stay at Unit 161

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was super cute and was perfect for our first family vacation with our 4 year old and 1 year old. It was nice having a full kitchen so we didn't have to eat out for every meal. The items, that were available to us from the owners, were very useful and made our stay better. The Beach Dreams community was very relaxing and peaceful. Everyone was very kind. Wells is a beautiful area. We look forward for our next stay!

Great cottage and community

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cottage for a girls weekend and were very happy with it. The Beach Dreams community is great and has awesome amenities. We loved being able to walk down to the clubhouse to use the hot tub and pool after a long day at the beach. Everyone we met were extremely friendly and helpful. The cottage was comfortable and clean and had everything we needed to enjoy our weekend. Close to Wells and Ogunquit. Thank you for letting us use your home!!

Pleasant with few exceptions

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was pleasant. Best part was the fully stocked kitchen. It had everything for cooking a great meal.

It was very convenient to have a washer and dryer.

Fair selection of movies and books and games for those rainy days.

Overall, everything was pretty clean. I did need to sweep the floors when we first arrived as there was gritty sand in the kitchen.

The CON- The queen mattress was awful. We care for special needs elders in our home 24/7 and almost never get to sleep through the night. We periodically go away with the sole intent of getting decent sleep. The mattress was extremely uncomfortable and we came home just as tired as when we got there with added backache. We even tried to flip it over to see if it would be better but it was badly stained. For us- it was enough to ruin our stay. HOWEVER- if they got a new mattress we would go back!

The pools looked nice (clean, well kept) but we didn't get to use them as it rained all three days we were there. :-(

Owner's Response: Thank you for your honest review of your stay. We always appreciate feedback so that we can stay on top of things. I am so sorry that you found the bed to be uncomfortable and more importantly that it ruined your stay. That is really very sad as we take people's vacations very seriously and want to provide a "home away from home" for people. This is the first time we have heard that the bed is not comfortable and honestly, we both sleep better there than we do at home. We have had the condo for 10 years now and I guess it's time to replace the mattress. We hope you are able to enjoy the rest of the summer and that you get a good night's sleep soon. Thanks again, John and Sherry

Great place to vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience while vacationing at John and Sherry's home! They were very accommodating and the directions and check in process were seamless. I would HIGHLY recommend this property to anyone looking to vacation in the southern coastal region of Maine! It is close to everything and provides a nice place to travel from. Thank you John and Sherry for a great experience!
