House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8) Quiet Cul De Sac, Child Friendly
About Betsy Royal
I have enjoyed the community immensely. Since moving here for work many years ago my children and I count this as our home. We all dive and travel far and wide for our ocean experiences. Coming home, I love to walk Compo Beach. Year round. We take in the sea, fresh air and then retire to our home for nature at its best. Coyote, Deer including big daddy with a rack, hawk, fox and an array of spring birds to watch.
Betsy Royal purchased this House in 1997
Why Betsy Royal chose Westport
Westport is our home port. It has community, the arts, summer sand and sea. We keep a boat here to enjoy the water. Our neighborhood is just amazing, wonderful families and a wide range of young uns'. Even though mine are moving to their next phase, coming home is special because of this community.
What makes this House unique
Fire in the fireplace, two months to spring and summer days follow.. Copper Beach Trees grace our front and side yard. Spectacular specimens. Even our tree people were in awe of their bark and beauty. Two Japanese Maples are counter points to the Copper Beach trees. The natural setting backing on to our property is amazing for an 'in town' home. Our winter brought 23 solidly fed turkeys to our lawn to feast on beech and chestnuts, a beautiful red fox just this morning walked the parameter, blue jays, cardinals and an array of other winged friends are here and much more visible with the trees without foliage. Walk to town, rest in the private world that is your back a change of venue, if just for a moment.

Charming older home
This lovely home on a large lot in a quiet development charms with its comfortable and relaxing ambience. Although finishes and decor are somewhat dated, the home was clean and very inviting. We were treated to visits by deer and a red fox most mornings as we had coffee on the enclosed porch overlooking the back yard. A great place to stay for our pups too!
Dave was a wonderful host and the house is so comfortable and relaxing. We enjoyed seeing a couple of deer a few times while lounging in the hot tub. The back yard view is amazing with a gorgeous copper beech tree in back and another in front. Hope we can return soon.
Little slice of heaven
From beginning to end one of the nicest property owners and homes we have ever rented. We literally felt like houseguests of a long time friend’s home. Everything you could possibly want was provided and the back yard...spectacular!!! We hosted a college graduation party for a few families and the house was absolutely perfectly set up to entertain. When our son get into Yale Law, WE WILL BE BACK! 😉
Very nice home. Great owners that were very helpful.
Everything was as described. The owners were great and communicative throughout. House is on a wonderful little street with very little traffic. The location is very close to the main shopping district of Westport. Could definitely walk but its just a few minute drive as well. Backyard is very pretty with a nice enclosed sunroom that you can sit out and watch wildlife. We saw many deer, squirrel, a red fox etc. all meandering through within 20 feet us.
Peaceful family home in a great neighborhood and super hosts!
We had a fantastic week at Betsy’s. It really was home from home. She gave us a very warm welcome and really went the extra mile by leaving out very clear instructions on facilities and things to do in the local area. Her home is so cosy and was very comfortable. Plenty of towels and bedding and extra heaters if we needed them (which we didn’t as the central heating was ample). There is also a large playing area in the basement. I would definitely recommend a visit and stay in her house and we do hope to be able to return one day.
We stayed in October and we had deer visiting our backyard every single day.
Thank you Betsy and Dave (+Tom)!
