Great for families with kids! As one of our recent guests wrote: 'The smiles on my children's faces were wonderful! They also loved the toys in the house. Ocean Beach Park was a very nice treat. What a beautiful spot! Thanks for renting to us on such short notice. Your beautiful home has been the highlight of our two week vacation, including D.C. and NYC! (Michelle W., Oregon, 7/1/2013)

THE HOUSE:
Welcome to our comfortable Cape Cod style house in a picturesque beach community. On the first floor, the house has a living room with sofa bed and 32 inch flat screen TV, dining room, recently remodeled and fully equipped kitchen, double bedroom, enclosed, three season front and back porches for lots of extra space, and bathroom with shower. You can also eat on the back porch at our large dining table. Upstairs, three people can be accommodated in the king bedroom, since it also has a twin bed. Across the hall is a queen bedroom. This room also has a futon to sleep two. The full bath has a tub. There are room air conditioners throughout the house for your comfort. The TV has integrated DVD/DVR and 200 channels. Use your laptop with wireless internet. Relax in the private fenced back yard with large picnic table, patio set and charcoal grill. We just installed a large wood patio.

THE AREA:
Remember when you were a kid and the whole family went to a real old-fashioned beach and boardwalk? A 3 minute walk away, Ocean Beach Park recreates that era, with its half-mile long white sand beach and boardwalk. Enjoy the amusement rides, waterslides, miniature golf, food and ice cream, Workout World (WOW) Fitness Center, nature preserve and trails, Olympic-sized pool, children's playground and huge video arcade. Young kids will enjoy the free children's splash park! See the weblink below for all the events and entertainment schedules for Ocean Beach Park. With the family beach pass (included in rental rate), your whole family can enjoy the beach, boardwalk, beach volleyball courts, nightime movies and entertainment on the beach and much more. (Daily passes for the pool, waterslides and rides are available for purchase at the park). Weekly passes are available for Workout World.

Launch our two-person kayak (or your own boat) on Alewife Cove, just a stone's throw away, and explore the Ocean Beach Wildlife preserve and miles of scenic areas of coastal Long Island Sound by water. See the weblink below for more pictures of the house and surrounding area.

A short drive away are two of the world's largest casinos, Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods. In addition to casino gaming and shopping, the casinos provide name entertainment, great dining and professional sports. The family will LOVE the Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville at the Mohegan Sun! Rent our house for less than rooms at the casino and save your money for the games! See the weblink below for all the events and entertainment schedules for the Mohegan Sun casino.

New London is an arts lovers' haven with galleries, artist colonies, live music, theatre and performing arts. Sailfest is held each year the second weekend in July, with a huge saturday night fireworks display over the harbor.

About the owner: We are Randy and Carolyn and we have lived in New London for about ten years and now are the proud owners of four homes. Three of the homes are located near the beautiful New London Harbor and/or Long Island Sound - these are our rental homes which we are happy to share with guests from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world! We love tending our homes and preparing them for our guests.

Why the Owner Chose New London:
This home is so close to Ocean Beach Park! It is located in a friendly and quiet neighborhood. The area is beautiful for walking, jogging, or bike riding. The front and back porches, private back yard and proximity to Ocean Beach Park make this a favorite of our guests.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If Ocean Beach Park is where you want to be, then this is the home for you! You will love our new backyard patio!
