  • Wonderful family vacation!

    "Do not hesitate to book this fantastic home! We had lovely family vacation for 18, ages 4-75. Fun for all! Easy drive to Stony Creek CT. Easy to park your car for few days. Quick ferry to the house. Home is beautiful. All bedrooms and baths are nicely done. Nice linens/bedding. Great, stocked kitchen (no microwave, no biggie). Wonderful decks for coffee and full meals while watching the sun set. Great little beach with kayaks. Plenty of room to roam, rocks to climb, places to relax. We took the Thimble Islands tour with Capt. Bob (fantastic), we ate dinner one night in Branford at Nataz, 10 minutes away, we sailed for few hours with Eric Treu at Sailworks (worth every penny), we rented 19ft boat for a week from docks in Guilford (totally worth it). One of the best family trips ever! Jeff was so accommodating and easy to work with. Rent it!"

  • Great Beach Location

    "The house was a lovely beach cottage and such a great location for us with our young son. We could walk on the beach, collect shells and sea glass, walk to the playground, walk fro good seafood and yummy ice cream at The Sandpiper and access what we needed easily. Lanna was great to work with, very nice, thoughtful and flexible. The beds were comfortable and the house had what we needed. It was perfect for our visit."

  • Just Plain Perfect!!!

    "My wife and I rented this charming house as a base for our younger son's wedding activities in Noank and Groton Long Point. Staying with us were our older son, his wife, and his two children (ages five and seven). It was perfect! The description of the house is right on the button (see the other reviews). When we arrived, it was spotlessly clean and impeccably neat; and everything worked as it should. The house is very well appointed and the beds very comfortable indeed. The house is very conveniently located just a short walk from downtown Mystic, where we ate most of our non-wedding meals. The oysters at The Oyster Club were delicious (highly recommended), and I indulged myself with a pre-wedding shave (a real one!) and pedicure at The Salty Dog. Just a five-minute drive from Noank, a ten-minute drive from Groton Long Point made this house the location perfect. (A major grocery store was not too far away either.) The owners were a delight to work with. I recommend this property very highly."

  • Great USCGA Grad rental

    "Our family had a fabulous week in May at this lovely house for the US Coast Guard Academy graduation. It was very spacious, clean, well appointed and had a spectacular view! Plenty of parking. The lawn was a super place to relax in the evenings overlooking the bay. The vistas from the oceanside rooms were terrific. The owner was very accommodating and we were met upon arrival by his representative. Very nice decor with a complete and roomy kitchen. We catered locally with BOFE and The Cake Lady…they were a hit. We shared the expenses of the house among the family and the costs were less than a hotel. Then also you can consider that we all had a super place to gather and entertain. I highly recommend this rental. Book soon, this place will go fast."

It hosts regular commercial flights on domestic carriers as well as private charter planes.
