We provide beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys and coolers. We also have an iron and ironing board for those occasions when wrinkled isn't the look you want. It’s like being home away from home.

Lawrence & Memorial Hospital is 4 blocks away.
My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights with our 22 month old. We had stayed in a hotel for 2 nights prior and our daughter was so cranky. But once we arrived at this house she was perfectly content and comfortable. The house has everything you need in the kitchen, the bath, the backyard area as well as what you need for the beach. The free internet, cable tv and use of a dvd for the little one to watch her favorite videos was great. Having the laundry available to us was a tremendous plus. We would stay here again and hopefully will next summer when we return to the east coast for a visit.
Nearby: Mystic Seaport, Mystic Aquarium, Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun Casinos, Westbrook and Clinton Outlets; Rocky Neck and Hammonasset State Parks; Ocean and Waterford Beach; downtown New London with art galleries, live theater as well as a historic district and sportfishing operations.
