About Dave Agonis

My Sue and I grew up on Long Island Sound and are boaters and explorers at heart. We love the water and the peace and relaxation it brings. Please share our home and enjoy your stay.

Dave Agonis purchased this house in 2006

Why Dave Agonis chose Connecticut

Its the best of many worlds! You can enjoy the water swimming, fishing, Kayaking or boating all from the same location that you can barbecue, sip a cocktail, catch a sun tan and retire for the evening. Its all there on the premise. there is a public, but secluded beach directly across from us the is accessible by water only. So you can enjoy the comfort of the beach without the mess of sand or you can get that too if you like with a quick paddle or boat across.

What makes this house unique

For boaters, you can tie to the dock and have your boat with you. Nothing better than taking a evening cruise or an early AM ride by yourself to feel free. Dock has exceptionally deep water, 10ft deep and is forty feet long.

Perfect for water-lovers!

  • 5 of 5

What a great time staying at this amazing home and property! Waking up every morning from the master bedroom with a beautiful water view and sunrise, it doesn't get much better! The home is spacious, clean and well stocked with everything you would need for your stay. Since kayaking was a big part of our trip, the ease of getting in and out and tying up to the dock was a bonus. We also took advantage of some of the surrounding restaurants and pubs for drinks and apps. Loved 'The Dock' and 'Sunset Ribs' for a casual, fun, and 'on the water' atmosphere, though actually there's no reason to leave the house because you can have that right in your own backyard with this home! Thanks to DAVE for being an amazing host and so easy to work with! I'm sure we will be back!

Lovely

  • 5 of 5

I first looked at this house in 2013 but the vacation plans did not work out.

Since Dave was so easy to work with I held onto the details and contact info.

My husband and I stayed at this wonderful Niantic Riverfront home week of Labor Day and loved every minute. Dave could not have been easier to deal with and helpful when I reached out. S & P Oyster Co was the perfect recommend. We kept busy as the area has much to do and we had plenty of time to just hang and enjoy this incredible waterfront. I hope it works out we get to come back again. Best of Luck Dave on your wonderful home.

Perfect house for group getaway

  • 5 of 5

A group of us (7 total) stayed here over New Year's Eve- this house was perfect for a group of friends/couples- plenty of private space, yet lots of communal space as well. Convenient (short drive) to supermarket/shopping/ Amtrak stations if needed. Beautiful location on the water, which we appreciated even in winter- especially the view from the living room! Dave was extremely personable and responsive. We're already planning a trip back in warmer weather.

Lovely location on Niantic Bay

  • 4 of 5

We rented the house for a week for my son's graduation from the Coast Guard Academy. It is a lovely location and we loved playing croquet on the side yard and dinners on the patio. There is ample living space (lots of big comfy couches) and a very well stocked kitchen. My only complaint is with the plumbing. Although the house has two bathrooms that are next to each other, we struggled with a lack of water pressure and inconsistent hot water - we could never run both showers at the same time and sometimes had tepid showers. Other than that - the place was great!

Owner's Response: I am very glad we were able to learn of the water pressure problem as we were able to correct by adding in an NEW indirect hot water heating system in early June. We formerly had hot water off the boiler and thi snew usint has been sized correctly to accomodate our guests. Thank you again and sorryfor inconvenience.

Beautiful home and location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a Friday to stay for Columbus Day weekend. We got married at Rocky Neck State Park on October 7th and this house served as our bridal headquarters during that process. The location was perfect.

It's so exciting to arrive in new digs and roam around the house and property checking everything out. First, we became acquainted with the backyard/patio area which has a dock sitting on the river. You can also see this view from two decks attached to the house and a wall of windows. Every morning you can wake and watch as the sun rises and fills the space with light. We loved the open quality of the "great room" and we made ourselves at home in the kitchen stocking the fridge with all sorts of good food. There was plenty of shotgun style parking and the house was very clean and well maintained. We are already dreaming of the next time we can visit again.
