About Owner/Manager

My family grew up summering at Giant's Neck Beach and my wife, Pat, at Cornfield Point Beach in Old Saybrook. We both have many great memories of our times at the beach. We met at the beach 35 years ago and continue to enjoy spending time together with our family at Giant's Neck Beach.

Owner/Manager purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Owner/Manager chose Connecticut Shore

We were visiting family at the beach when a neighbor said he was interested in selling his house. We ended up purchasing the property in April of 2014 and started the remodeling. We are very excited to start making many more memories as our family grows.

What makes this cottage unique

We love our Beach House ! From the quiet setting, large private yard, family friendly area, safe beaching, beach play scape for the younger ones and an ice cream truck with daily visits! There is so much to offer. We love sitting on the yard looking down at the water view. Our little piece of heaven. It doesn't get much better than this!

It is just wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a comfortable place for the family to gather for some rest and relaxation. And boy, did we find it! This property is not only clean, charming and comfortable with a great location, but it also comes with wonderful "customer service"! The owners, Pat and Peter, are very gracious and provide a home that is well maintained, attractively furnished, and stocked with whatever a vacationer might need. We loved that the beach was just a short walk away and took advantage of that, strolling down several times a day. We loved sitting on the deck to talk and gathering around the dining room table to play cards. One brother hung his travel hammock between two trees and took afternoon naps while my other brother, a combat vet, was touched by the American flag, the center of another conversation area in the yard with the view of the beach. Our parents appreciated the first floor master bedroom and the sun porch, and I loved the well-stocked kitchen, especially the Keurig coffee maker! We all said the same thing after just a few days into our stay, “Book this house again next year!” And we will!

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

I wish I could give this property 10 stars. It was truly amazing. The house had everything needed for a great vacation and more. Pat & Peter really cared that my family and I had a great vacation. The house is beautiful inside and out. The beds were comfy ,and there was enough room for everyone. Every room was very nicely decorated. We really loved making s'mores on the fire pit and playing yard games in the huge back yard. The back deck was spacious and we had a cookout our first night! The house is only a short walk to the private beach. I can't wait for our next trip back to CT and we will definitely be staying here!

Fantastic cottage for families

  • 5 of 5

My parents and I rent this house for ourselves and our 2 young kids. We LOVED it. It was perfect. The inside was decorated beautifully and was immaculate. It had plenty of room and tons of light. The yard was the best part. Our kids loved the grass and fire pit and shaded deck. It's secluded but easily walkable to the beach and duck pond. There wasn't anything missing from the house which made things so easy for us. There were even fabulous kids books the owners were kind enough to let us borrow a pack and play and stroller. They were super easy to work with and gave us our deposit back right away. Perfect for 2 families with kids. It makes such a difference to know there were things already there we could use and not have to pack. We can't wait to rent again. I would definitely recommend this cottage!!

What a perfect escape!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a beautiful cottage with everything you need for a relaxing stay. It is cozy, meticulously clean and beautifully decorated. The central air is a big plus and the kitchen has everything you need for your stay. There is plenty of outdoor living space for relaxing and running around. The outside shower is spacious and inviting. I can't wait to go back again!

Spectacular rental

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went with our two young children (both under three years old). The house was immaculate and had everything we needed! The beach was a short walk away. Pat and Peter went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. Additionslly, Niantic is a great town for families, and a good base for sight seeing the many attractions in that region. We hope to rent the house again next year!

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect. Everything was new and tastefully decorated. Very clean and updated. The owner left wine and food for our arrival. The house was stocked with all the essentials. Can't find anything to complain about. The owners are very responsive and easy to deal with. Can't say enough good things about this rental. Will definitely stay at this house when I return next April.
