About Madeleine Makiaris

This cottage was built by our grandparents and was enjoyed by family members during the summer for many years. We, the current owners, are now living in year-round homes in Giants Neck and have chosen to rent the family summer cottage to others so that they can enjoy this wonderful community and make summer vacation memories of their own.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband, grandchildren, and I had the pleasure of staying here. It is a charming cottage. It has everything that you could possibly need. The owners supply it very well. It has a beautiful remodeled bathroom. It also has a great washer and dryer. It has a lovely front porch where I spent most of my time. It also has a nice back yard. It is very close to the community club house and the beach. It is located in a very quiet and peaceful area. The owners are wonderful people and they are very accommodating. Niantic is a great place to stay. We loved it.

Another wonderful stay at Giants Neck!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay back at this lovely cottage in Giants Neck Beach Association. This year we were thrilled to see the remodeling done by the owners over the Winter. Brand new, enlarged bathroom and a washer/dryer!! Such great improvements! This beach association is truly a gem, our kids loved Bingo night and the daily ice cream truck visits. Downtown Niantic and The Book Barn are must visit and just down the road. The owners go out of their way to make sure that everything you need for a perfect beach vacation is there waiting for you. We hope to be back again next year!

Wonderful vacation cottage for a family.

  • 5 of 5

We just had a great stay at this charming cottage in Giants Neck Beach. The owners are wonderful and live nearby to assist with any questions or problems. The cottage is on a dead end within a private beach association, so it is perfect for families with small children who want their kids to be able to play in the yard. The backyard has great shade and a picnic table. We had many lovely meals there. The kitchen is fully stocked with equipment and everything is neat and clean. The association beaches are great for small children and the ice cream truck is a constant visitor! The only downside is that the bathroom is very tiny and there is not a tub (just a standup shower). However, this would not prevent us from renting again as we had a wonderful trip!
