                    The apartment was wonderful. It was located right across the street from the water in a quiet beach neighborhood. There were three of us and it suited us just fine. We stayed over the Thanksgiving weekend, so there was not much call for using the beach, but it was still a pleasant visit to the area. I highly recommend this rental. Clean, quiet, and cozy. I cannot wait to visit in the summer.

                    We had a very busy weekend planned starting with the Essex Christmas train ride and a family celebration in Baltic the very next morning. We wanted to eliminate the driving back and forth to our home in the western part of CT. We were able to rent for one night, bring our aging dog, and cook a quick breakfast in the AM. The apartment was big enough for four of us during our short stay. We did take advantage of being so close to the beach, but it was a lovely site! The owner greeted us when we arrived after dark expressing concern about our late arrival. When told that were were lured by the sun..the Mohegan Sun, she understood. I enjoy meeting the people I rent from. I think it was the cleanest place that we have rented through VRBO..other places were clean..this apartment was immaculate!

                    We live close to the beach in Florida. The last place I wanted to stay in CT was on the beach but while looking for a nice place at an affordable price to take our granddaughter with us to see the Fall Leaves we ran across this perfect little apt attached to a house just steps across the street from the beach. To my surprise my wife and little granddaughter loved walking on the beach in the morning and evening during the fall. The little apt was perfect. Quiet, private, clean and had everything we wanted. Having stayed in many homes and condos over the years through these types of sites you never know till you arrive if its what you are hoping for. This little place was that and more. I definitely recommend it to anyone whether hoping to spend time on the beach or one of the amazing little beach front towns and inland towns in and around CT. We had a great time.

                    This little apartment is nestled in the woods but right across the street from the beach so it provides the best of both worlds--quiet and privacy as well as easy access to the sand and a swimmable beach. The apartment is clean and nicely appointed and equipped. Very friendly and helpful owner. Easy parking right next to the front door and beautiful flowers all around. Comfortable private patio with table and chairs which we enjoyed both morning and evening. Highly recommended.

                    Perfect for two of us to get a few days away from it all. The private beach feature is lovely -- no expensive parking fees or beach police. The in-law apartment is nice, and the owners friendly and accommodating. Wouldn't recommend the sleeping space for more than three people unless you wanted to get really cozy. Not a lot to do in the local area without driving a long way, so be ready to kick back and enjoy the water and the patio! We had a great time!

                    This apartment was perfect for a long weekend on the CT shore. Every summer, my in-laws have a family reunion near Niantic, and I was tired of staying at overpriced hotels or camping. Bev's apartment was the perfect solution, and I definitely plan to stay there again next summer! Two of us slept in the bedroom upstairs, and one person used the futon in the living area downstairs. The apartment was just the right size for 2-3 adults. I think it would be a tight squeeze for 4 adults. Pros: Quiet, good location, clean, well-supplied. We opted to bring our own linens, but Bev provided everything else (garbage bags, toilet paper, dish soap, plenty of pillows and blankets, etc.). Quick and helpful communication with Bev prior to arriving. Nice outdoor patio (beautiful flowers!) and nearby beach although we didn't have a chance to utilize these amenities because we were spending time with family during most of our stay. Cons: Weak wireless signal and cell phone reception (Verizon). The internet was probably good enough for people who are truly on vacation, but I was frustrated trying to answer some emails for work. Bumped my head several times on the sloped bedroom ceiling! Maybe rearranging the furniture slightly would fix this? Overall, I was very pleased with my stay and would definitely recommend!

                    I kidnapped my husband for an early birthday get-away and only wanted 2-3 days away. Bev's lovely in-law apartment was the ONLY place that offered daily rentals rather than week-long during this summer season. The apartment was perfect - great studio set up with kitchen, living area and bath on the main floor. Upstairs was a wonderful bedroom with a queen size, very comfortable bed (I had been fighting back pain for a while and woke up with NO pain). There was air conditioning running when we arrived but due to cooler temps we told Bev it was okay to turn it off & we could open the windows. The apartment is a VERY short walk across the street from the beach and has its own private section of beach. If someone doesn't mind sleeping on a futon which is in the living area, there is only 1 step into the apartment & 1 step up into the bathroom so it could possibly be a good place for those physically challenged. The only caution I would mention is that the ceiling in the bedroom is sloped & a bit low so make sure you duck or you will add to the collection of marks on the ceiling :)

                    Was exactly as the description said and pictured. Lovely property right across the street from the beach. Bedroom is huge - and if you wanted, could put another queen sized blow up. Downstairs has a full size futon. Already have recommended it to our son's inlaw's who travel to this area frequently and have to spend nite in a hotel. We will definitely be staying here again when the situation calls for it. Hopefully for a full week instead of a few days to take advantage of the beach! Bev, our friendly hostess greeted us and was very helpful!!! Has nice sized stove and refrig to cook if you want. We brought breakfast stuff to save money. Would bring dinner stuff if we came for longer - but since our son lives in the area, we ate with them.
