Overview

Niantic House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Captain's Cottage was built along with rest of the neighborhood in the 1890's by the Crescent Beach Land Company as a summer get away. Since then the cottage has been extensively remodeled and winterized as a year round residence. It now features a large, eat-in gourmet kitchen, a Bose home theater, a dining/gaming room, and a computer area. A major remodel completed in 2007 added an oversized two car garage, a master suite with jetted shower, an upper deck with discrete sunning area and hot tub, a pool/trophy room with an eight foot Connelly table, and a basement with home gym, including a universal machine, a treadmill, and free weights. It also has a 32' LCD TV/DVD with P90X.

Captain's Cottage is ideally located just 66 steps--I counted'em--away from the finest beach for miles around. Crescent Beach is meticulously manicured every morning at the crack of dawn. It has a raft, a lifeguard, and 'The Stand', serving breakfast and lunch daily. There's a place to launch small boats. And it's all an easy walk into town having all the ammenities of a classic New England beach town: clam shacks, ice cream and coffee shops, antiques, gift shops, movie theater, pizza parlors and watering holes.

Captain's Cottage is uniquely suited for entertaining. There is a gas grill on the tropical themed front porch that Jimmy Buffet would be proud of, and the dining room opens to the front porch thru an opening in the wet bar for al fresco dining. There is service for parties of up to twenty.

Captain's Cottage comes fully equipped with boats, bicycles, and all the gear your family will need to get the most from your stay at the beach!

About The Owner

'Captain' is a well earned moniker for Capt Rick, as he's known by his friends. A native of Crescent Beach, he is a veteran Air Force captain, a fighter pilot having flown the F-4 Phantom and the A-10 Thunderbolt.

As sea captain, he has earned a Coast Guard 100 ton off-shore Masters license, having plied waters from New England to Bermuda, Bahamas and the Caribbean, momentos of which can be seen throughout Captain's Cottage.

As captain of the skyways, he is also an international airline captain flying B-767 for American Airlines to Europe, Caribben, and South America.

So, a captain threefold, the name is hard to escape! You're invited to share the captain's east coast home, as he nows hails from Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Owner purchased this house in 1994

Why The Owner chose Niantic

I bought Captain's Cottage 1996 as a personal residence to raise my family, and it has been awesome! Now that my family is grown and gone, I'm happy to extend their experience to others.

What makes this house unique

Guests of Captain's Cottage enjoy living in the heart of Crescent Beach, a very family friendly beach community, while staying in deluxe accommodations and amenities not found in other beach rentals.

This was our third stay at this great place and it just gets better and better. There were some additional kitchen items this year, not that we were really lacking in anything, which made things easier and more enjoyable. 10 thumbs up!!!

My family and I had a truly wonderful vacation in Crescent Beach staying at the home of Captain Rick aptly called "Captain's Cottage". This fantastic residence has every amenity one could desire and is seconds from one of the nicest. well kept beaches in CT with the great town of Niantic within walking distance. If you are looking for a relaxing and fun holiday on the water, Captain's Cottage cannot be beat.

Every time my family has spent time in the Captain's Cottage we have found something new about the place that we did not know before, which has made the stay even better than the previous time before. The free flowing spaciousness of the space has made it all the easier for our large family to get together and have such fun together without being on top of each other. There is plenty to do without being on top of each other and you can't beat the comfort no matter where you are. The best ever!!

Awesome place to stay. We had a great time. Capt Rick and Jenna were very inviting and helpful throughout our stay. Great place for a bachelor party weekend. Mohegan Casino close. Nice but small beach literally 66 steps away (as the Capt says). Will DEFINITELY consider going back! Which apartment is...

The house looks awesome in the listings, but it still totally exceeded our expectations - it's even cooler and quite a bit bigger than we thought it would be. The entire house is so thoroughly and thoughtfully appointed, from the supply and quality of sheets and towels, appliances, cleaning supplies, etc, to the perfect-for-entertaining layout. We loved the indoor / outdoor space, the big and well equipped kitchen, the deck and wet-bar, the gorgeous little beach, and the incredible master suite. Captain Rick was accommodating and welcoming - we felt like guests in a friend's home. We couldn't have been happier, and can't wait to come back. Thank you!
