Very nice house, across St from beach, not a swimmable one but walkable, and swimmable beach 5 min drive away.
Great vacation home
Very clean. All amenities including laundry, beach towels, kayaks, cornhole. Attractive interior and classic weathered shingle exterior. Huge master. Awesome shower. Easy communication with the owner. Fifty steps to the beach. Great place. This was our second year here, looking forward to many more.
just what my husband and I needed! Beautiful property, very relaxing, gorgeous views, big kitchen, very comfortable bed. Loved sitting on the deck in the morning. And the rain shower is a nice touch of luxe. We recommend!
Kara and her husband were perfect guests and left our place spotless. We certainly look forward to hosting them again!
Great family getaway
House was very clean and big enough for 8 of us. We met Ben when we checked-in and he was helpful with ideas regarding neighborhood and places to see. Provided everything we needed to cook a few meals Also enjoyed the kayaks and the widow's watch. The location was convenient with restaurants, shopping, and bars within short walking distance and 5 minute drive to large beach park that we visited several days. Train station is close for ride into NYC for the day. Overall, great stay for us.
We loved it. Took in a Broadway show and bicycled everyday!
Great Home for Yale Graduation
Great home with nice views. We were there for Yale Graduation and the drive to campus is 15-20 minutes. The home has a nice open floor plan for entertaining, it was nice to have family dinners at the house as New Haven restaurants were mostly booked. We also enjoyed the outside deck for cocktail time. Highly recommend for Yale Graduation. Great home all around!
The West Haven beaches and shoreline are one of the states foremost locations to observe rare shore birds serving as a migratory route to some of the most endangered bird species. The estuary is also where Sammy the harp seal has been spotted.
