"I'm used to vacation rental properties being filled with old wicker furniture and a tv from the mid-1990s, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that this home was anything but typical. Warm and inviting with comfortable beds and nice linens. The kitchen cupboard contained MATCHING PLATES AND GLASSES. Seriously - that's a huge plus!
The home has clearly been remodeled in the past few years and is very well cared for. Everything we needed was easily accessible, and the communication throughout the reservation process was prompt and thorough. Honestly can't say enough about how happy I am with the whole experience. Hope to be back in the future."

"The location provided the opportunity to walk to the (free) Town Beach, many restaurants (Michael's Dairy for ice cream was fabulous), Dunkin Donuts, and the Eugene O'Neil house. We were close by car to Ocean Beach, Mystic Seaport, and many historic sites in New London. The owners very thoughtfully provided a free pass to Ocean Beach.
The house itself suited our needs perfectly. The backyard accommodated 20 people for an informal luncheon and the front porch was ideal for quiet conversation. The eat in kitchen was a gathering spot every morning. We enjoyed the feeling of moving into "grandmother's house" with a good variety of books, games, and toys around for all ages.
We were however, disappointed with a variety of housekeeping issues. The place had obviously not had a good thorough cleaning in quite a while. Cleaning supplies were not well organized, making it difficult for us to clean during our stay and at check out. It took a day of searching to find the cables for the DVD player. While we appreciate having basic condiments and supplies left from previous tenants (we ourselves left dish liquid for the next tenants), so much had been left in the cabinets and refrigerator it was difficult to find space for the food we had brought. Most of our food had to be left on the counter as there was no cabinet space available.
Overall, the dust and cobwebs as well as other obvious issues, made it clear that the house had not been thoroughly cleaned before our arrival.
In conclusion - we loved the location and ambiance of the house and would probably stay here again. We give it Five Stars for location and 3 1/2 Stars for Housekeeping."

"This house was compact, clean, convenient - a delight in every way. We even managed okay with just one bath and seven people. Very near a great beach (short walking distance). And very convenient to the things we like to do as a family: Mystic Seaport; miniature golf at Saybrook Point; Gillette's Castle; Chester ferry; Essex steam train; Johnny Ad's restaurant in Old Saybrook - and especially the Deep River Fife & Drum Corps Muster on the 19th (always the 3rd Saturday in July). Grew up nearby but have lived in Texas for 20 years - and definitely will use this house as a great place for a "base of operations" when visiting the East or coming back again for the Muster."
