Great for families with kids! As one of our recent guests wrote: 'The smiles on my children's faces were wonderful! They also loved the toys in the house. Ocean Beach Park was a very nice treat. What a beautiful spot! Thanks for renting to us on such short notice. Your beautiful home has been the highlight of our two week vacation, including D.C. and NYC! (Michelle W., Oregon, 7/1/2013)

We love tending our homes and preparing them for our guests.
Randy Hogg purchased this house in 2005
This home is so close to Ocean Beach Park! It is located in a friendly and quiet neighborhood. The area is beautiful for walking, jogging, or bike riding. The front and back porches, private back yard and proximity to Ocean Beach Park make this a favorite of our guests.
If Ocean Beach Park is where you want to be, then this is the home for you! You will love our new backyard patio!
Thank you! Great location and very comfortable. Kids enjoyed the back room. Beach access much appreciated and a lovely beach it is!
We were attracted to this area because we could be at the ocean in less than an 8 hour drive from our home. Fans of "Daddy Jack's Cooking with the Blues" YouTube cooking classes, we also hoped to meet Jack Chaplin at his restaurant in New London. This rental property was very roomy and had everything we required. It was so nice that most kitchen staples were there for our use. It was pleasant sitting in the private back yard while our dinner grilled over the coals. The beach is 5 mins walk from the home--Ocean Park also has a swimming pool, water slide, mini putt, and events like movie night and live bands. Fun things we did included: ferry to Block Island and seeing the sites by moped, shopping and eating in Mystic seaport, drove to NYC to visit the 9/11 museum. A vacation with a bit of everything!
I am a college professor who was presenting at the Eugene O'Neill Conference at Conn. College. I wanted a place where family from MA could visit and where, later in the week, a friend also attending the conference could join me. This house was perfect! I walk a lot and was grateful for the beach passes. We enjoyed lobster rolls at the Shanty on Pequoit, went to Monte Cristo, drove to Old Mystic, and the house was not too far from the conference! Thank you so much!
The location of this house is excellent. So convenient to the ferry to Block Island, Newport, RI, Mystic, CT and comes with a pass to Ocean Park Beach. The facilities at Ocean Park Beach are in great need of a face-lift, but the beach itself is nice. We have rented several times from VRBO and this house was below the level of cleanliness that we have come to expect. The owner requires you to wash all the bedding and towels prior to leaving. That requirement is disclosed prior to the rental agreement. Now that we have done that, we will disclose that is not an easy task if you have a large family or group. We would have gladly paid more if given the option to avoid the hours of washing and drying on the final day of vacation. The photos do accurately depict this property. It was the perfect configuration of beds and sleeping for our family. This owner is friendly and helpful in answering questions. The price of this house was reasonable and I would recommend it to a friend or relative.
We truly enjoyed this location, with Ocean Beach so near. We were in town to visit relatives but because we were so comfortable in this home they all came to visit us. We were thankful for all of the little extras like beach towels and a fenced backyard. The property owners were a delight too work with, which made our vacation even more relaxing!
Me and my friends (2 couples) stayed here for an extended weekend in Connecticut. Our stay was here was better than we could have imagined it. The house is the perfect size for 4+ people and is equipt with everything you would need and more. Short walk/ride to the beach and 10min from Mystic and 20min from Mohegan. We plan on coming back again!
Randy and Carolyn,
We had a wonderful week at your home, thanks so much. We have rented many homes and have never seen one so well equipped and supplied. There was everything we needed for big dinners and entertaining and the kids had a ball with all the toys, stuffed animals and videos.
We were two small families for most of the week and really enjoyed all the different seating areas between the two porches, living room, dining room, kitchen and backyard.
Being just a block from Ocean Beach Park kept the kids busy and excited all week! We did everything from relaxing on the beach to miniature golf to the water slide to the Olympic size pool, splash park, arcade, playground, amusement rides and ice cream!
Day trips to Mystic Seaport, Block Island and Watch Hill were also a breeze and highlights of our vacation.
Thanks again for thinking of everything!
