Overview

New London House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 11-13)

ARRIVE ANY DAY OF THE WEEK! Unlike most rental homes, Harbor View House can be yours for short or long stays (three night minimum in season; 2 night minimum off-season).

RECENT REVIEW:

'As soon as we got to the house, the holiday mood was set by the sight of the sea at the end of the street. It kept on getting better as we discovered the house. ACs were already running so the house was cooled down, nice touch on top of the personal welcome note. The house is really big with plenty of beds, it is incredible how much it has to offer. I think the pics don't do it justice. We were able to fire up the grill and enjoy dinner in the backyard. Bugs repellent was even provided! Finally the beach pass made us feel more like residents than tourists from the city. Carolyn is very responsive and is easily reachable by phone or email. The whole check in/out process is absolutely seamless. Thanks again for saving us from a weekend in the city humid heat. Hope to come again!'

Eric D., New York City, 7/8/2013

WELCOME

to our beautiful and gracious, 3-story, completely renovated, Victorian-style house overlooking picturesque New London Harbor. Walk 5 minutes (or drive; parking available) to a quiet public beach or to magnificent Ocean Beach Park. The 2,160 square foot house is ideal for a family beach vacation and is within an easy walk to many attractions, shops, restaurants, full service marinas and kayak rental. Available year round, you can arrive any day of the week. The house has 4 air-conditioned bedrooms and 2 full baths, sleeps 11 to 14 and has gleaming hardwood floors throughout, a brand new kitchen and 2 sparkling new bathrooms. The family will love the large AIR-CONDITIONED third floor activity room (refer to guest comments)with a real arcade console game, an XBOX video game system, a video library, and a 42 inch TV with DVD and VCR. The kids will also enjoy a wide variety of toys including dolls, Legos and much more. Mom and Dad will enjoy relaxing on the covered front porch, walking to the 'On The Waterfront' restaurant or grilling a family picnic in the private back yard. New London Harbor has ferry boats coming and going, sailboats galore and even an occasional submarine.

THE HOUSE

First floor: new eat-in kitchen (fully equipped), living room with queen Broyhill sleeper sofa, dining room with sitting alcove, laundry room, bathroom with tub/shower, wireless internet hub.

Second floor: three bedrooms w/ air conditioners - (two spacious queen rooms with ceiling fans, one double), and new bathroom with claw foot tub with shower conversion.

Third floor: large fourth air-conditioned bedroom (sleeps three in three twin beds) AND large (23' by 19') air-conditioned family activity room with cathedral ceiling (w/ queen futon and loft bed above.)

COMPLETELY FURNISHED FOR VACATION FUN

The house is completely furnished with linens, towels, paper products, cooking utensils, and laundry products. The first floor laundry room has a washer and dryer. In the private, fenced back yard you'll find lawn chairs, dining table and chairs, and a charcoal grill. We even supply beach chairs, umbrella, cooler and beach toys!

BRING THE WHOLE CREW

Besides the 4 bedrooms sleeping 9, a queen size futon is available in the family activity room, so 11 persons can be accommodated in beds. Plus, on the first floor there is a comfortable Broyhill queen-size sleeper sofa. For a still larger group, we have two rollaway beds and lots of room to accommodate them. For babies, we have available two pack and plays, and high chair.

SIT AND ENJOY THE VIEWS

Watch the exciting comings and goings in the harbor from your windows or porch. The beautiful US Coast Guard tall ship 'Eagle' has its home dock just below. Submarines go by almost daily from the US Navy sub base on the opposite shore. Ferries to Long Island and Block Island and lobster boats, fishing boats and sailboats come and go to the marinas a block away. Dock your own boat, within a minute's walk, there at a transient slip.

PARK THE CAR AND WALK

Within a 5 minute walk you can be at the New London town beach (Green's Harbor) with parking, lifeguard, grassy playground and picnic tables. This beach is especially good for small children as the sand is clean and the waves are small. The family can also walk to Fred's Shanty - a real New England Clam Bar - as well as several other restaurants, Michael's Dairy Ice Cream, a cafe/market and a wine/package store. Also enjoy shopping and eating at Saeed's International Market.

RIDE BIKES OR DRIVE

Within a two mile drive is beautiful Ocean Beach Park with Connecticut's longest white sand beach and boardwalk, arcade, food, mini golf, children's rides, Olympic-sized pool, nature trails and a children's splash park. Bike riding is easy along New London's shaded quiet streets. Launch a kayak and enjoy miles of protected, quiet water in the Thames River or nearby coastal waterways.

MORE ATTRACTIONS NEARBY

Within a half-hour drive are three giant casinos, Mohegan Sun, MGM Grand and Foxwoods with unlimited food and entertainment. The family will LOVE the new Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville at the Mohegan! Also visit the U.S. Coast Guard Academy or the Navy Submarine Base with a great free submarine museum. Downtown New London, about one mile away, has art galleries, restaurants, the ferry terminal to Long Island and Block Island and the train station with regular service to New York and Boston. New London's Fort Trumbull State Park has a beautifully restored waterfront Civil War era fort with walking trails. At Captain Scott's Lobster Dock nearby, you can dine outside on fresh seafood sitting at picnic tables as you watch the lobster boats come in with their catch.

SAILFEST - THE SUMMER FESTIVAL

The weekend after the 4th of July is Sailfest time, one of the largest summer festivals in New England. You'll be able to easily get to the festival venues from the house and you'll watch the giant fireworks display over the harbor from the front porch

About Randy Hogg

We are Randy and Carolyn. We live in New London and love it! Carolyn is a Speech Pathologist and Randy is in Medical Research. Our hobby is hosting our rental houses and we love to meet guests and see our beautiful area anew through their eyes.

Randy Hogg purchased this house in 2008

Why Randy Hogg chose New London

The charm of this home called out to us when we first saw it! We immediately knew that it was a wonderful place for family gatherings, with its large bedrooms, and the spacious third floor family room. We love how the first floor provides so much room for our guests to mingle. The front porch is a splendid spot to sip morning coffee or an evening glass of wine.

What makes this house unique

We are Carolyn and Randy and our hobby is welcoming guests from around the world in our three beach homes. We love New London and feel like we are on vacation ourselves when our guests discover all the great things to see and do here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our short stay while attending Parent's Weekend at the Coast Guard Academy. Location was convenient and the house was spacious for our needs (there were ten of us). Thank you, Carolyn and Randy, for your flexibility with our changes. All the best!

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5
The location provided the opportunity to walk to the (free) Town Beach, many restaurants (Michael's Dairy for ice cream was fabulous), Dunkin Donuts, and the Eugene O'Neil house. We were close by car to Ocean Beach, Mystic Seaport, and many historic sites in New London. The owners very thoughtfully provided a free pass to Ocean Beach.

The house itself suited our needs perfectly. The backyard accommodated 20 people for an informal luncheon and the front porch was ideal for quiet conversation. The eat in kitchen was a gathering spot every morning. We enjoyed the feeling of moving into "grandmother's house" with a good variety of books, games, and toys around for all ages.

We were however, disappointed with a variety of housekeeping issues. The place had obviously not had a good thorough cleaning in quite a while. Cleaning supplies were not well organized, making it difficult for us to clean during our stay and at check out. It took a day of searching to find the cables for the DVD player. While we appreciate having basic condiments and supplies left from previous tenants (we ourselves left dish liquid for the next tenants), so much had been left in the cabinets and refrigerator it was difficult to find space for the food we had brought. Most of our food had to be left on the counter as there was no cabinet space available.

Overall, the dust and cobwebs as well as other obvious issues, made it clear that the house had not been thoroughly cleaned before our arrival.

In conclusion - we loved the location and ambiance of the house and would probably stay here again. We give it Five Stars for location and 3 1/2 Stars for Housekeeping.

New London House

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfect for our three families coming together for our son's wedding. We enjoyed the flexibility of the owners and as we were able to get into the house early on the first day. The upstairs rooms were perfect for our children as they spent quality time together.

We loved the versatility of this home and the proximity to the beach. The crowning glory of this house was he use of Guthnrie Beach. our grandchildren loved it.

Throw in the nicest owners, Carolyn and Randy and every thing you could possibly need and it all added up to a great vacation for us.

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5
The house fit our large family perfectly. I was impressed with all the games, toys, beach toys etc. available for the kids to enjoy. A perfect walk to the beach. We enjoyed Frank's just down the block for fish. We were disappointed in the cleanliness of the house. It needs to be deep cleaned. (Mold on shower curtains). Childrens feet were black after walking on the floor. The backyard was pretty much dirt. I would recommend the place once it was cleaned up.
