About Kathy Smith

We have lived in Eastern CT for the last 20 years. Originally from the UK we like to travel and see various parts of the world. When we do, we like to feel like we are “at home” so we have tried to make this home feel like that for you.

Kathy Smith purchased this house in 2004

Why Kathy Smith chose Niantic

We bought this house in 2004 because we love the waterfront in Niantic. This location offers a private beach and dock, a short motor over to a marina and is in a quiet neighborhood. You can stay at home and avoid the crowds, or take a short walk or drive into town for more bustle depending on your mood.

What makes this house unique

This home offers a chance to “get away from it all” but with access to the town of Niantic and other bigger beach towns along the CT coast. A short walk from the house to tennis courts and a nature preserve with trails for your enjoyment. Or you can sit on the deck all day and watch the boats go by, while the children play on the beach.

Great Weekend

  • 5 of 5
This is the second time we stayed here. It is a wonderful home with quiet surroundings. The back deck is perfect for coffee in the morning or wine in the evening. There are two kayaks to enjoy from he back dock. We have already booked for a week next year. The Owner is great to deal with and very helpful. We highly recommend.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week at this home - we were four adults and four teenagers, with plenty of room to socialize and relax. The third floor served as a great place for the kids to hang out and we all enjoyed the view of the water. We also appreciated having so much to see and do in Niantic and surrounding area. This is a hidden gem!!

A Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
We just had our best vacation ever and it was because of this truly perfect home located on a stunning location. It's difficult not to overuse superlatives here. Our hosts did everything possible to make it so. Outstandingly clean, attractively furnished and fully equipped in every way - everything was done to insure we had a wonderful time. And we certainly did. Our children loved the beach and lived there for the week. We found ourselves caught up in the spectacular views - dawn and dusk - from the back deck where we had most of our meals. Descriptions do not do this home justice . And there is so much to do in this part of the state - museums, restaurants, antiques, shopping, beach towns to explore - just a short drive away. A quick tip: be sure to go to Captain Scott's in New London for the complete harbor side lobster experience.
All we can say is that our stay was ideal in every way and our hosts were uncommonly generous. We'd go back in a heartbeat!!

Full family

This was our 2nd stay and we were just as thrilled as during our 1st. The home has everything you could need and more and the setting is just perfect for relaxing and enjoying the water. The location is close to great day trips - our kids loved Mystic Aquarium, of course! The home and location was pefect for our 4 kids, ages 7 - 12, as well as for us adults. Would recommend without hesitation!

Fantastic Week-Fantastic House and Property

  • 5 of 5
My wife and our adult daughters could not have enjoyed a setting more than we did at Kathy and Andrew's beautiful house located on a piece of property overlooking a stunning view of the Long Island Sound estuary.The ouside deck was a great place to gather in the morning for some coffee or in the evening to enjoy a cookout while watching the boats pass by or watching waterfowl enjoying their days.The house itself is very spacious with some magnificent views from the majority of rooms in the house.The owner's have thought of everything one would need on vacation from a well stocked kitchen, to floats and beach chairs to towels and sheets galore.The location of Niantic is close to beaches, theatres, State parks and wonderful restaurants and great side trips such as Mystic seaport.You will not be disappointed and I wouldn't be surprised if you came here more than once. Thanks Kathy and Andrew for providing us with this outstanding property.

Family fun in Niantic

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at this waterfront home. Arriving as we did from six hectic, noisy days in New York city, we felt like we'd found a little bit of heaven. The house is beautiful, and what a view! Everything was so clean and welcoming, and the owners really made an effort to make us feel right at home, even leaving a welcome pack for us in the fridge. Our teenagers loved the water and having use of the Kayaks. We loved every minute of our stay and we very much hope to return in the near future. We would highly recommend it. The towns of Mystic and Newport were easy to get to and well worth visiting from there.

Owner's Response: We're so pleased that you enjoyed our "haven" on the water and that it was welcome break after the big city. We try to provide something for all the family so that everyone can be entertained and enjoy their time there.
Best wishes, K&A
