  • Exceeded all expectations... which were high!

    "Wonderful views of the Bay and lighthouse especially from the balcony of the master bedroom of this beachside survivor of the 1938 hurricane. The lovely accommodation is family traditional, well appointed and generous (6+ bedrooms). It absorbed our British daughters' wedding party of 10 happily with plenty of escape room. The attentive owners fixed any challenges and the breakfasts at Doreen's 'Broken Yolk' diner were humungous and memorable. Highly recommended in every way. White sands for the kids. Only wished we could have stayed longer."

  • LOVED everything.

    "We - 3 moms and 3 girls 4-5 years old had an absolutely amazing time at this wonderful property for our annual Girls Week. Everything was great, I have not a single thing to complain about (save the noisy bullfrog day and night and the too tiny coffee maker!). The house is lovely... the game room a delight... the toys and beach accoutrements more than we could dream of. The sandy beach has a very gradual slope just perfect for young swimmers. We loved kayaking around the lake. We loved the fire pit. The owner provided so many tips and maps, etc and it was wonderful. We loved it all! Just awesome!"

  • Idyllic

    "i·dyl·lic: extremely happy, peaceful, or picturesque. That's such a perfect word to describe our time in the Henkle House. Here's why: Location - the best thing about this place is the proximity to the beach. You are about 100 steps to the gate that gets you onto the private beach. The owner left us plenty of wrist bands that private beach goers must use. Ocean Beach Park is 25 ft to the right of the private beach so there is super easy access. Renovated house - the house has been recently renovated and belongs in the pages of a catalog. the owner went first class all the way - frontgate outdoor furniture, outdoor kitchen, pottery barn bedding, pier 1 accessories. I've never been in a rental that has been so carefully and beautifully decorated. So relaxing! Great for kids - Ocean Beach Park kept the kids easily entertained, cloudy or sunny. mini-golf, splash park, amusement rides, beach, playground, digging for crabs. At the end of each day, we stuck all five kids (mostly toddlers) upstairs to sleep on the 3rd floor. There was a TV in there so they could watch a movie at the end of the day and fall asleep. I honestly don't know why this area isn't jammed all summer long but I am grateful that it hasn't yet been discovered. This house was a perfect place for us - launching pad for Ocean Beach Park activities and relaxing for the granddad who preferred to read on the beautiful outdoor deck. We hope to come back for years to come."

  • Beautiful, quaint, and close to the casino

    "This was the best deal when trying to do a relaxing getaway, but with the option to spend some time at Mohegan sun. The space was very well kept, and the lofted bedroom made things feel really unique. The addition of a Murphy bed on the ground floor allows for a solid number of occupants to spend time there. The owner was so easy to work with in booking the villa (even just a day or two before arrival). The Norwich Spa was truly something to behold, taking you back to a more refined period of time. The owners club pool was a delightful surprise. Getting to Mohegan, it was just a mile from the villa. Given that we wanted to drink, a 7 dollar cab ride was nothing to balk at. All in all, great way to spend a weekend!"
