Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This lovely beach house on a quiet cul-de-sac has rights to a private beach just one block away and is perfect as your home away from home. The comfortable, spacious home features 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room, dining room, family/TV room, sun room, patio with Weber gas grill, washer/dryer and modern kitchen.

The house is within walking distance from Ocean Beach which is very kid-friendly featuring mini golf, video games and a nice wooden boardwalk. We are 10 minutes from I-95, 2.5 hours from NYC, 1.5 hours from Boston and 20 minutes from Mystic which has an aquarium, seaport and great dining. The New London area has great restaurants, museums and activities for both children and adults -- it’s also less than 30 minutes from the Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun Casinos.

Please note, our home does not have air conditioning, but that is common in our neighborhood. Everyone has their own personal preference, but we find it is only needed about 3-5 humid nights during the summer.

About Seth

Married with a family and living in NJ.

Seth purchased this house in 2004

Why Seth chose Connecticut Shore

This area is very family friendly. The sand on the beaches is very soft and the waves from the Long Island Sound are tame as compared to beaches on the ocean.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time. It was our first family vacation in New London and we liked everything about the area. Especially the beaches. It was so convenient to walk to Neptune Beach with our gear. We did this many times.

The house was great. It has a very homey feel to it. The living room and dining room were our favorites.We especially appreciated the backpack chairs and the HUGE beach towels. We brought our own but used yours !!



The outdoor shower was just what we needed after our beach time.



Again we had a great time.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. We were traveling with another family, but the house felt roomy enough for all of us. The house was a little dated, but it served our needs just fine.

It's just a short walk to the beautiful private beach, where the kids swam and the adults enjoyed the views of the Ledge Light and passing ferries. We also took a walk down to Ocean beach Park and played mini golf. (Be aware that Ocean Beach Park has a short summer season, the water slides were closed by the end of August.)

New London is a nice town. Centrally located between Boston and NYC. We also really enjoyed visiting Newport, RI, which was about an hour drive away. We would definitely come back some day.

The owner was easy to work with and friendly.

There are a couple of things that could be improved. The upstairs bathroom door was very difficult to lock. Impossible for the kids. And a couple windows downstairs didn't open/close properly. The owner was made aware of the window issue and I think he planned to repair that after we left. No big deal.

Close to the beach and perfect for our big family

  • 5 of 5

Seth's house is literally 150 steps from the private beach. We could see the water from our bedroom window. With five bedrooms, our family spread out comfortably. We could be together if we wanted to and also spread out in our own space. The living room and dining room were comfortable for those times we stayed inside. We spent most of our days outside in the backyard or on the beach. We had our choice of several private beach areas. The waves were gentle enough for a toddler to play in. After a day on the beach, there are two showers inside and one outside. The kitchen had all of the basics, Including enough pots to cook 8 lobsters for one meal. Ocean Beach Park is a short walk away, with fun evening events like a magic show and fireworks.

Family fun-month

  • 5 of 5

We stayed during the month of July. It was great to be so close to the beach...especially with little ones that needed to nap during the day.

Would definitely come back again next year!

Great location for beach family fun

  • 5 of 5

We really liked this house, and plan to come back next year. It is close to the beach, and had plenty of room on the first floor for our family to hang out. I would recommend it. Bedrooms were good size too.

We stayed in late May...house does not have air conditioning.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Arrived with my family and some extended family. House had a great layout for letting kids play or watch tv while adults were nearby, but separated.

Beach was beautiful and waves were perfect for our younger travelers (age 6 and 4). Very close to beach - about 1.5 short blocks to the water.

Will definitely be back next year!

Great week in New London,Ct.

  • 4 of 5

The house is very convenient to the beach and having beach passes to Neptune Beach is a bonus. It's proximity to Ocean Beach Park is great also.

We liked the house and were most happy with the living and dining rooms. Bed rooms were just right also.

There was plenty of room for the six of us to spread out and our granddaughter commandeered the den for her play room.

The enclosed back porch allowed us to keep our chairs and other beach stuff dry on the one day that it rained. Having extra beach chairs,and umbrella and those HUGE beach towels was a bonus also.
