This place is a real gem. Wonderfully appointed with nautical decor, spacious and open and sits on what feels like your own private beach. Just step out onto the lanai onto a lovely lawn/garden area and look out upon the water. Take a few more steps and you are on the beach and in the water. The house was comfortable and convenient - with stores and stops aplenty throughtout the area. Stocked with cooking equipment, towels, linens, and telescope for night star gazing or getting a glimpse at the passing ships. I still long for the outdoor shower to end the day. From the moment we walked in we felt at home. One of the most relaxing vacations I have had in years! The owner Lisa was a joy to work with - prompt in responding to any questions and very thorough. Staying here was a nostolgic visit to the Connecticut shore.
