Bring your kyaks and take a paddle thru the bird sancutary. After you've taken a bike ride or walk around the beach,enjoy the spectacular sunset from this air conditioned home and listen to the waves hit the beach.
Located near great dining, historic seaport and casinos, there is something for everyone.
My husband I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! The neighborhood where the house is located is quiet, friendly (even to renters) and has some great spots to see heron and egrets tucked around the corner from the rental. There are a number of parks nearby - we visited Bluff Point and Harkness, in addition to Rocky Neck -- and other attractions, such as the Essex Steam Train, Gillette Castle, New London for the lighthouse cruise, and Mystic are very easy to get to. The house was very comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed, and we liked having the convenience of the washer and dryer. All of our communications with Carol were friendly, timely, and she made everything easy. One thing to mention -- you do have to go upstairs to get to the house, which could be an issue for some, such as people with young children or folks who have minor mobility issues. We thoroughly enjoyed falling asleep listening to the tide instead of city traffic, and we would definitely recommend Carol as an owner and this house as a great place to kick back, relax and enjoy the Connecticut coast.
This is my 2nd year at this lovely home. My children and grandchildren just love it here. If you want breath taking views, a beautiful home fully furnished, the beach right across the street, plenty of places to go locally, total rest and relaxation and a private beach.....then this is the place for you! Everything in this house is just perfect and will make a fantastic vacation destination! You won't be disappointed!!! Carol
Honestly, we can't remember when we had so much relaxation and fun. Phil and I found the cottage to be more like our home away from home. It was clean, comfortable and cozy with ample seating and lots to do. And the views left us breathless. Our friends from Michigan joined us for most of the week and we were all taken by the Long Island Sound sunsets. The cottage living and dining areas are roomy with large windows facing the water so we found our favorite seats and proceeded to watch the sunsets while enjoying a glass of wine before dinner. We took advantage of the seafood that only New England can offer - Lobster, fried clams, seafood medleys, scallops and swordfish were on the menu most of the week. And the cottage is in a great area for walking and sightseeing. We made daily trips for shopping in Mystic, Stonington Borough, Essex, Niantic, Noank and Watch Hill, R.I. to name a few. We would recommend this cottage for just about anybody who enjoys being near the water. It's great for adults and youngsters alike. Thanks for offering your lovely cottage to us.
I am so very happy that I rented this house. As lovely as the pictures are on this site, they don't do justice to the most beautiful place ever. I went for total relaxation and that's exactly what I got. I had my grandchildren with me (ages 1 1/2 and 4) and they just loved going down to the water and play in low tide. The views are breathtaking from any spot in the house. The owner is wonderful and so friendly and professional. She always makes herself available for any concerns or questions you might have. The peace and tranquility you get from listening to the ocean is totally relaxing. I highly recommend this place for a most unforgettable vacation!!! Carol W
The location is perfect. The drive was easy, the neighborhood is well maintained and is located in short driving distance to shopping, attractions and restaurants.
The house is wonderful; very clean and well-maintained. We were wanting for nothing as far as amenities and kitchen appliances/utensils.
Most importantly, we received excellent care by the homeowner. She was prompt and helpful in all communications. She made herself very accessible if we had any needs to be addressed during our stay.
I could not imagine anyone regretting renting this home!
