Old Saybrook Get-away

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 10, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
We enjoyed a wonderful get-away at the Beach Retreat Cottage Sept. 30 - Oct. 3, 2013. It proved to be ideal for the two of us seniors with all that we needed right on the main floor; a comfy-cozy cottage with all amenities, breath-taking views of the ocean and beautiful sunsets. A no-minimum stay was definitely a plus. As always, having the opportunity to meet the owners upon check-in, rather than working through a realtor, makes everything a bit more special.

Owner's Response: It was so nice to meet you and we hope to see you you again next year. Thanks for being such wonderful guests and treating our cottage as if it was your own home!

Can't beat the location - wondeful water view, right on the ocean. But the cottage is rustic, the bathroom very tiny. The kitchen was well equipped. No eating area insdie. The bedrooms are all very small, no closets throughtout the entire cottage, 1 bureau in the whole house. Upstairs rooms not walled off, exposed wires and outlets, not suitable for young children. Can't shut the door in an upstairs bedroom. Ample parking. Outdoor furniture subpar. When it rained there was water pooled on the porch floor. Old Saybrook is a truly beautiful and scenic town, wonderful beaches, great restaurants and shops.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your input. We will definitely get more bureaus, and we removed the broken outside chair. The upstairs will be updated for the 2014 season, along with air conditioning and Wi-Fi. We advertise as a cottage, not a "home" or hotel conditions. We really take pride in making sure our guests are comfortable.

The owners both greeted me on check in and provided phone # for any questions. They gave me a review of the premises which was updated since last year due to weather related issues. The updates are quite nice and comfortable. The house was clean and several of my relatives joined me for dinner and relaxation. Enjoyed the cable access and would enjoy having WIFI too.This beach vacation is a great place to visit each year. Looking forward to next year.

Owner's Response: As new owners, it was nice to meet you and hear your review as a previous renter. Thank you for coming back and treating the house as your own. We wish the weather was better for you. Hope to see you next year!

Fantastic

My family of 5 had a wonderful time at this lovely cottage. It was immaculate and had a fully stocked kitchen (spices, soap, sponges, etc...). Another major convenience was having bathing towels and sheets provided. The view was stunning and the kids had a great time at low tide. If it was too breezy or too sunny, we had just as great a view sitting on the enclosed porch. They did a great job with the remodel.
If you need a beach, Harvey Beach is a one minute drive down the road, and was free with the town pass - a must see if you have kids.
Thanks again for opening your home to our family.
Owner's Response: We sure hope you come back next year! Thanks for treating our home as if it was yours...it was great to meet all of you and we are so happy you had a good week. We are very fortunate to have guests like you. Hope to see you again!

The cottage was simply perfect. The location could not have been better as well as the accomodations. The hosts really made us feel their cottage was our home away from home for the week!

Owner's Response: Thanks Darlene,

It's so nice when our guests treat the cottage as if it was their own. We hope to see you again. Happy summer!!!
