ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!

This house was absolutely fantastic!! Went down this past summer with 3 friends for a week. There is literally not one complaint I can make. The owner was a pleasure to deal with. She was quick to respond to emails, always available, and made the process so easy! The yard is so private, which was the best part. The house is set back and very private. Big kitchen and living room, 4 bedrooms, 1.5 baths and best of all the price is right! Definitely hope to come back next year. Honestly, can not say enough good things. Parking was tight, but we made it work. It's so close to the beach and beach bars, which is always a plus! I would recommend this house in a heartbeat!

Great place for young adults, not families

The house is clean. Unfortunately the windows are older and bugs inevitably get in. The owner is very nice and responsive. The yard is small but charming. Here are the downfalls: we went with two small children during a heat wave. All those pretty shrubs block every ounce of an ocean breeze. Fans going in every room (no A/C) and it was still unbearable. There is no Wi-Fi and for us with ATT no cell service, it was a PITA.

Our first day we walked to the beach and literally turned around because I was convince that could not possibly be the beach for us. The best term I can use to describe it was Spring Break. Lots of 20-somethings and all drinking. I do not mean to sound prude (I likely would have been drinking with them if not for the family vacation thing) but it really isn't great for young kids. Day 1 we witnessed a sex act directly on the beach then came home to a cop pulling over what I can only expect to be a drunk driver directly in front of the cottage. There is lots of traffic due to the hang out although it does subside by 10pm or so. Day 2 while walking for ice cream we saw a completely nude man running around his car (drunk), thankfully my kids were looking the other way. Day 3 with the announcement at the beach bar (did I mention the bar is directly on the beach?) to not forget tomorrow is "Tuesday Boozeday" I told my husband we were traveling to a different beach.

There was a carousel for kids with a great guy who operated it daily. More than once he gave my kids free rides. The ice cream and Italian ice places were great, but other than that I can't stress enough this isn't the place for young ones. Also for positives are great Beach donuts served on Sat and Sundays, they benefit the shoreline community center or something of the like.

In all we had a good vacation and my husband and I had a lot of laughs at these things. We both agreed 10 years ago and no kids this would be the perfect spot to vacation.
Owner's Response: Most tenants love our front yard as it's the only one in the neighborhood that is hidden away from the street and the hedges actually provide shade and keep the yard cool. I have a number of tenants who have been renting here year after year, and this includes families, for the past 9 years. I actually don't rent to 20-somethings looking to party. Also, the description of the cottage clearly states there is no A/C and no Wifi. It's very no frills and my tenants are aware and do not have issues with this. I believe Kirsten may have had a situation at the beach that was a little out of the norm, like the heat wave and the drunken kids. The first thing to do is report anything to the police so these things don't happen again (which I did.) I'm sorry Kirsten didn't get what she expected but again, the cottage is described in the listing and I have no control over the weather or what others do at the beach.

The cottage is one block from Soundview Beach in Old Lyme, CT. The shore is perfect for long walks. This is mostly a family community. Hartford Ave is one block away and has shops, ice cream, and attractions for children (like a Merry-go-Round). There is a homemade donut shop half a block away. The Pavillion, a restaurant/bar, is on the beach at the end of the block.

Other Activities: casinos, merry-go-round, ice cream, shops, bar/cafe on beach
