"If you have a small family, look no further! This house was perfect for our family (2 adults/2 children). It was clean and had everything we needed. Also, the pictures are outdated, the kitchen has been upgraded and look likes the owners re-painted. There are bunk beds in the second bedroom as well as futon sofa which made the room more spacious. The beach is clean and only short walking distance from the house. There are lots to do in the area - mini golfing in Old Saybrook, Essex Steam train, great restaurants. Will definitely come back!"

"My family and I rented this cottage during Labor Day Weekend for a little get-together, and it was the perfect location! It's right on the beach, plenty of space. The cottage was clean and definitely had that feel as if it was "home." Neighbors were all very friendly. Wifi included, plenty of chairs inside and on the beach, including a picnic table. In addition to this being a great rental, Elly is a wonderful owner! Very accommodating, such as with parking spaces, and just for anything we needed or had questions about. It was also a pleasure meeting her husband! I highly recommend this cottage and working with Elly and her family!!! :)"

"The house was perfect for our family. Lots of room, and well divided so the kids could watch tv in one room while the adults watched in a separate room. The kids loved the water, and playing in the sand. It was a huge plus that we were a short walk to Ocean Beach. We played miniature golf and had ice cream there one evening. The board walk at Ocean Beach was also nice for our early evening stroll."

"My Family & I (12 of us altogether - mix of little ones, teens and adults) were lucky enough to stay at Suzanne and Dan's place in New London in July 2015. Suzanne met us at the house to give the tour. It was perfect for ALL of us with PLENTY of room and privacy...similar to a mini hotel with all of our own family suites. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, utensils, etc., but if you needed anything, you could go 10 mins down the street to a shop & stop (open 24hrs). Because we were a large group, we cooked out on the grill EVERY NIGHT and had our dinner and drinks on the (very private) deck. I think this was my favorite time : ) chilling at the end of the day before heading down to Ocean beach (2 block walk) for the nightly events. The game room provided a ton of entertainment for the kids (all ages) every night. Mystic is so close (15mins) and for a more wavy beach, we ended up at Misquamicut RI Beach ($20/day) for boogy boarding. Highly recommend it, the only thing we couldn't find for the beach was a sun umbrella-they could have had one, but we didn't bug Suzanne or Dan for one. They had everything else though...towels, chairs, sunscreen, beach toys, etc.
This house is a 5 Star for us - it was perfect in so many ways. Great space, great location, great quiet, friendly neighborhood and neighbors. Someone in another post mentioned ants in the kitchen...yes, we saw a few around the water faucet, (my home is no different) but I don't believe it was about any food that was left-atleast not in our case...it certainly wasn't bothersome or an issue at all (2 or 3 the whole week).
We would DEFINITELY return back here for more morning/nightly walks on the beach, exploring more CT fun and just being able to relax in this wonderful home ; ) TY Suzanne and Dan for hosting our family in New London."
