Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This was a very pleasant cottage tucked back away from the road with shade, peace, and quiet, yet really just a few steps from the beach. The hosts were very friendly and they are dog lovers so they made us and our pooch feel welcome. The accommodations are not luxury but clean, comfortable and attractive. The beach is private which is very nice. They welcomed our well behaved dog on the beach on a leash. The area has interesting attractions and restaurants. The Florence Griswold Museum is a must see for art lovers. Johnny Ads Seafood in Old Saybrook is a must for a true New England seafood experience. This is also a great place for kayaking, swimming and fishing. I would recommend this property to a friend.

Absolutely perfect family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5
We just got home from a four day stay with our 2 daughters and we were super sad to leave! The house is absolutely beautiful and totally spotless and fully stocked with everything you could possibly need including dishes, utensils, pots and pans, and every small appliance you could ever want. The upstairs bedroom was a huge plus so that our teenage daughter could have some space to herself when she wanted to read alone or for when our preschool-aged daughter wanted to go to bed early while my husband watched a movie downstairs at night. The bedroom is huge with tons of space for your clothing and belongings and super clean. The bathroom was immaculate, too, and had plenty of storage space and shelves for a family's toiletries. Our family of four was very comfortable and very safe and very happy! The house itself is tucked away into a lovely wooded area so it was so quiet and peaceful... No noise, no crazy boardwalk action, no people... Our youngest daughter was able to go to bed at 8 p.m. every night and nap every day without anyone being able to disturb her because of the forest location. Now, that being said, the beach is literally across from the sandy road from the front steps... It took us about 45 seconds to walk to the beach from the house! And the beach itself? Breathtaking. So quiet and calm... You pretty much have the entire beach to yourself. At any given time there was, maybe, one or two other families there, but mostly you have the place to yourself. My husband and I would spend hours there lying on our blankets in the sand and the only sounds we heard were the waves and our two daughters laughing happily. The beach was pristine sand... So soft and clean... And the ocean was so clean and calm that our daughters never felt nervous at all about swimming on their own (under our watchful eye). Sailboats would glide by occasionally which made for a beautiful sight, too... The neighborhood was super safe and quiet and the locals were very helpful and kind. The couple that own the rental live in the house attached to it and they were so sweet and nice! Beverly was happy to point out things to do with our girls and even let us use the hose on her side of the house to rinse off our feet every time we came back to the house from the beach. She was so super friendly and sweet and funny and you honestly couldn't ask for better hosts! If you're looking for a beautiful rental on a quiet beach you have definitely found it!

Good Place if you like living in a cave

  • 1 of 5
We were very disappointed with everything about this property. The apartment smelled like a cave, it had a musty, damp & moldy smell to it. Everything in the apartment was always damp. We had planned on cooking at the apartment during our stay, but the smell was so bad we could not stomach it. The beach was a JOKE!!! who in there right mind wants to walk on 10 feet of beach? Meaning that was all of the beach that you could get to. The owners really need to redo their write up about this place and be honest with the people who pay to stay at this place. We left a day early because of the odor and that fact that you could NOT walk along the beach and enjoy it without people telling you to get off of their property. Who in the hell owns the freakin beach? The people that live on the beach are VERY rude people so again this was not a pleasant experience for us.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry that these people from Missouri had such a bad experience. I believe that part of the problem might be that they are not accustomed to our level of heat and humidity on the shore.
I did notice that they never opened a window for fresh air or to allow the air to circulate. Also the blinds were always closed. Otherwise it is a VERY bright apartment with the blinds and windows open. WE HAVE NEVER HAD COMPLAINTS BEFORE!!!
The sad part is that we live on site, and they NEVER approached us with their concerns.
AS for the beach.......I have no idea what they are talking about!
Our private area runs about a 50 foot beach frontage and you are able to walk approximately 1 and 1/2 miles in one direction and 1/2 mile in the other. Since these are private homes, everything at and below high tide mark is public.
Again, they should have communicated with us before condemning.
As a post script, one of the girls forgot her PJ's here in the bathroom. I was kind enough to wash them and mail them to her.
Sorry, again, for the poor experience.

Clean, cozy, and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this apartment for a Thursday & Friday night. Upon arrival the apartment was spotless and definitely exceeded our expectations! The location is in a cozy and quiet little beach town, just as described! The private beach is awesome- beautiful and relaxing! The owner, Beverly, is such a sweet woman! We were going to a concert at the nearby Mohegan Sun Casino and she gave us directions and some great tips. She even came outside to help us light the grill when we were struggling. Overall, we had a perfect trip, more than we imagined! Definitely oriented for people looking to "get away from it all". We will definitely will be going back!

Best of two worlds for a variety of people

  • 5 of 5
I absolutely loved this place. I was there as a single woman and then my fella joined me for the weekend. You have all the advantage of the beach right across the street and the house is nestled in the 'woods' making it a like a trip to the country. Nice area to relax outside and cool after the hot sands. I did a 3 mile walk every day and the streets are quiet and many others out walking and friendly. The owner was a complete delight and made me feel completely at home. The accommondations were immaculate and up to date with lovely pine walls and ceilings down stairs. It also made me feel 'safe' as a single woman to know that I had people right next door (next door but completely private). I highly recommend this place for singles and couples. I also liked the way I was not locked into a Saturday to Saturday stay like a lot of beach rentals.

Old Lyme Stay

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was wonderful. It was located right across the street from the water in a quiet beach neighborhood. There were three of us and it suited us just fine. We stayed over the Thanksgiving weekend, so there was not much call for using the beach, but it was still a pleasant visit to the area. I highly recommend this rental. Clean, quiet, and cozy. I cannot wait to visit in the summer.
