About Lanna Berkun

This is a small community. Many families have owned houses here for generations. It is very safe and friendly. The beaches are never crowded and are often deserted. It is unusual to be able to enjoy the sunrise and sunset on the same beach. You will feel like staying in the neighborhood so it is convenient that there are two restaurants on the street within walking distance. Once you come you will feel right at home. See you at the beach!

Lanna Berkun purchased this house in 1990

Why Lanna Berkun chose East Haven

It is a beautiful beach! It is a short trip from the big metropolitan areas of New York, Boston and Providence using either i-95 or the Shore Line Train. With casinos ( Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods),shops, antiquarians, historical landmarks , Yale University and easy access from I 95 and I91, if you did want to leave the beach there is plenty to do!

What makes this house unique

The local Italian food, and the beach! Yale University,Wooster Street's little Italy is 5 minutes away with the best pizza in the country! Mohegan Sun & Foxwoods Casinos, Mystic Aquarium. Location is central for New England sight seeing.

great spot

  • 5 of 5

Our first experience doing a vacation rental in this way, and it was great. Lanna was a wonderful host, she lives nearby and was very accessible and helpful. A cute small cottage with everything you need in the kitchen including coffee; an abundance of towels, linens etc., all the basics you need. A great place to use as a base for exploring the area. Thanks Lanna

Fantastic Place To Recharge

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a very memorable vacation on the Connecticut shore while staying at this cottage. The view from the front porch of both Long Island Sound and the salt marsh were beautiful. Friendly neighbors would stop to chat as they walked by, which afforded us some pleasant conversations over coffee. There were plenty of shells and shoreline to keep our toddler engaged. Thankfully, the rental had beach amenities including towels, chairs, sand toys, and a cooler. The private beach at the end of the street afforded us an extra amount of serenity and relaxation. Good restaurants and grocery stores were nearby. East Haven is well-positioned for day trips around Connecticut, so we took advantage of that all week. Lastly, but certainly not least, Lanna's hospitality was first rate. All in all, this beach house was a refreshing place to stay!

Perfect Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Lanna's coastal cottage provided the perfect getaway! This was my first time using a personal home rental, and now, this is the only way I want to travel. The location of the home was ideal, and within walking distance to restaurants, shoreline, playgrounds, etc. The home itself was so quaint and cozy, we instantly found ourselves referring to it as home. The home already was equipped with all the beach equipment we could ever want! The cottage made our experience so relaxing. And even the neighbors we would pass on a walk were so welcoming and friendly! Can't wait to visit again!

Would and will do it again!

  • 5 of 5

Lanna's cottage was the perfect location for us. With family in the area we were looking for a place where we could have our own space and still visit family and this cottage was exactly what we needed. The beaches, play ground and splash pad were perfect for our 4 year old son (who is now as addicted to collecting sea glass as his Momma is) and Lanna equipped us with everything we needed to enjoy those things worry free. The cottage was comfortable and the neighborhood was welcoming. We will do this again next summer; couldn't imagine renting anything else now. Thanks Lanna for making our stay so enjoyable!!

Fabulous Time at the Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three weeks, and loved every minute. The quaint beachside atmosphere, and living amongst very friendly full time residents, made us feel like locals. The Beachhead Restaurant across the street is a great place for food, fun and drink with excellent food, service and entertainment. We grilled and cooked at the cottage a lot, and were very impressed with having everything that we needed to do so right at hand. Lanna made us feel so welcome, and could not have been more accommodating. We have a son at Yale so will stay with her whenever we return.
