My husband and I are from Amsterdam, the Netherlands and moved to NYC 12 years ago. We have 4 kids ages 1, 4, 5 and 6. We both love the vibe and energy of the City but (especially) with kids we got to appreciate the quiet time outside the City as well. A few years ago we discovered Rowayton, a beautiful and friendly beach town. We bought our house in 2011 and have spent most of our weekends there since.

Julie Nieuweweme purchased this house in 2011

It is the perfect place to relax! It really feels like vacation when you are there; the beach, the beautiful views and amazing coastline, the sunset, nature, the outdoor activities make it a unique getaway!

All you need as a family within reach (walking distance); beaches, tennis courts, ice cream store (101), Rowayton pizza, private water access from yard, kayak, paddle boards, kids playhouse with slide, monkeybars and swing set and nature and bird reserve. All toys kids can even think off. House is clean, spacy, lots of light and very kids friendly. Nice open kitchen to dinning room and great outdoor BBQ dining experience with first row water view. Outdoor dining table and outdoor sunning beds available. Fantastic space to chill out with family, friends and children. Also great for nature and bird lovers as it is in the middle of Farm Creek reserve. Great owners!

Amazing Experience!!

  • Submitted: Mar 3, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
We had a wonderful experience with our 3 kids (3, 5, 7years). The yard is spacious and the kids can run around. It is fenced off very nicely so the kids cannot go anywhere. The lifeguard adirondack chairs are a great way to relax and enjoy the views over farm creek preserve while the kids are kayaking and swimming in the creek and jumping off the private dock. It is a 2min walk to beautiful and quite private beaches. Tennis courts are around the corner and for free. We bbq-ed every night with views on the water and having a true nature feeling in the yard. This is the ideal summer escape. My husband travelled to the city a couple of times for work (only 50 minute train commute). The owners are very helpful in making your stay an unforgettable one.

Rowayton is a historic fishers town with pittoresque views and houses. It is all about enjoying the outdoor life on the water, on the beach and/or on the tennis courts. Great spot for offshore fishing, boating, sailing, surfing paddle boarding etc. It is a friendly quite community with private beach associations (we are a member so you are as well!). Ideal spot to relax for a long weekend, week or month as it is only a step away from NYC.
