You & 3 BFFs Can Rent This Rustic Beach Condo For Only $33/Night Per Person In June

Ogunquit, Maine Airbnb Is Only $33/Night Per Person In June

Despite the abysmal weather, now is the time to begin planning summer vacations. And though it can sometimes feel like Montreal is far removed from seaside summer fun, some of the most beautiful beaches on the continent are easily accessible. Ogunquit, Maine, an eclectic, colourful village popular among Québécois, is, in fact, just over five hours away by car. The town and its eponymous beach with flour-like sand are frequently ranked the best destinations in New England.

Its popularity makes it expensive, however. During peak travel season, simple accommodation can reach as much as $500/night.

Additional amenities beyond the necessities come at a premium. Ocean views, meanwhile, can multiply prices twofold.

But search diligently and you'll find a cheap rustic gem: a two-bedroom condo right on the water in the adjacent municipality of Wells, which calls itself "the friendliest town in Maine."

For select weekday dates in June, a stay at this home with sweeping views of the ocean is a mere $133/night.

The Airbnb host allows for a maximum of four guests, for a total of $33.25 per night per person before taxes.

Weekend nights before June 20 are $40 more expensive — $173 — for an also reasonable $43.25/night/person before taxes and a service fee of $45.

These prices are especially remarkable considering the cost of nearby accommodations. Similarly sized Airbnbs up the coast are as much as two times more expensive for the same dates.

The phenomenal rates for this condo are only in effect before the summer solstice (June 20, 2020), after which prices inflate to $200 per weekday night and $240 per weekend night.

But temperatures in the mid-20s at the end of spring ensure that guests will still be able to enjoy the beach, nearby Ogunquit village, and the famous Marginal Way path, a trail along seaside cliffs and beach mansions.

The Wells condo includes wifi, a private balcony, access to free parking, and "views of the ocean in every room," according to the Airbnb listing.
