Comfort lacking

  • 2 of 5
We found the furniture very uncomfortable from sofa to bed. It made sitting to watch TV a bad experience and difficult sleeping. The bedroom, while very large, has a slanted ceiling and furniture is arranged so that pen person will bang their head if they don't remember to stay hunched over. Moving the bed in front of the makeshift closet could alleviate the issue. On a positive note, the space was extremely clean and owner was very pleasant. Remember, though, that property does share walls and sound travels. Beach was nice although as another reviewer stated, it appeared to be a small space rather than public beach. I did not walk beyond rock wall because others sitting on the beach offered looks as if I was considering trespassing.

Owner's Response: It's very disappointing to hear that a visitor was not happy with their stay.
One of the benefits of having us on site is that we can resolve any questions or concerns if they are presented to us at the time.
The beach here is private beach, in front of private homes, to which we have deeded access. In the summer it is wonderful because it is not crowded. Anyone is permitted to walk the beach near the water's edge. Our pictures show exactly what the beach front looks like.
Most people find the futon couch in the TV room very comfortable, especially since it has a high back. We also have a beautiful patio area for our guests to use, and there are many great places to visit nearby.
The bed is new, and I have had tenants rave about what a good night sleep they have had. It is, however, a queen size, and larger people would find this uncomfortable and might need a king.
It is always true that everything is not for everybody. People have individual tastes and preferences. I do not like to see our guests disappointed. Please address issues at the time so I can fix them. Thank you.

Peaceful, quiet beach vacation

  • 5 of 5
We just got home from a fantastic long weekend stay at this lovely apartment. It is tucked back away from the street (a very quiet street at that), near the woods, so it was very quiet and serene. This is an area where a lot of families are staying in beach cottages - not a lot of loud partying or nightlife, which we were thrilled about. We enjoyed a few walks down the beach, as well as down the road and through the neighborhood, and the few people we saw were very friendly. Though the house is not directly on the beach, we were able to just grab our stuff and walk barefoot across the road and were on the beach in about 1 minute. Overall the beach was very quiet and we had a great time just sitting out on the sand with our dog while our toddler played in the sand. We were able to put our toddler down for a midday nap, and to bed at 8pm, with the windows open without worry about noise. The house is stocked with everything you need (dishes, pots, pans, fridge, stove, etc.) so we just made one trip to the Big Y grocery store and cooked all of our meals there. The upstairs bedroom was very spacious, with lots of room and drawers for us to unpack our stuff. The entire place was pristine with lots of sunlight if you opened up the blinds. While I didn't have an opportunity to meet the owners during our stay (they live on-site, but were away for the weekend), they were wonderful in their communications with us and helping to make our stay a really nice one. We're already talking about coming back to stay again in the spring!

The perfect place for a quiet retreat for 2 (+ a dog)

  • 5 of 5
I was blown away by how lovely this 1 bedroom space was. Upon entering you come into the living room area with lots of beautiful natural light. The beach is literally across the street and you can see the sound. The kitchen area was perfect: full stove, plenty of dishes, plates, silverware, glasses, etc. There was a full size fridge so literally, all you needed for a perfect weekend was a trip to the Big Y grocery store in town and then a solitary retreat. I cannot say enough nice things about this lovely place. The bedroom was upstairs with a skylight and a large window. 2 fans kept the air moving and everything cool. The home owners are very dog friendly which is a real treat for a dog owner. :)

We will definitely be back again. We had such a great time we want to make it a yearly couple's retreat!

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.
