it was great and Henry and his wife were great
My family of 3 boys and I were coming from out of state to spend time with grandparents and other relatives. We were so lucky to find Henry & Francine's cottage. It was air-conditioned, which was key for my mom who has a respiratory condition, and immaculately clean. The Coskers have thought of everything to make it an easy stay - we really enjoyed the beach chairs and umbrellas provided as well as a handy outdoor shower (with hot water!) and line to dry wet suits. The cottage is well-appointed for cooking and was an easy few blocks walk to the beach. The parking pass was also helpful for ferrying people and stuff to the beach. It was a great visit and the Coskers were great hosts; the set-up after initial check in is to give you lots of privacy but I did feel they were easily reachable should we need them. A couple of minor suggestions: we couldn't find a can opener other than a puncture one anywhere in the otherwise well-stocked kitchen and if it might be possible in the future to get the Old Saybrook town pass for Town Beach as well. My family is already talking about coming back next summer. All in all, it was a fabulous trip in a great little town. I recommend Tea Kettle, Cuckoo's Nest, and Johnny Ad's for meals with kids. For adults Fresh Salt and the bistro at Chamard Vineyards. I also enjoyed Prive Swiss in Westbrook for fitness classes.
Thank you for your wonderful review. So happy you enjoyed your stay. We also appreciated you taking such good care of our home.
Wish we knew about the can opener. There was one early on in the summer. We would definitely have purchased one for you. Unfortunately, the Town Beach pass is for residents only and as far as I know it is associated with your license plate number.
A great location. Perfect for our holiday birthday celebration weekend.
The place was perfect for a family get together to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday. Several family members and friends were in town and we found our location to be the perfect distance to the beach/town hall. The beach is great for kids since the water is not deep and it's never really crowded. Francine and Henry introduced themselves upon our arrival and were very helpful with any questions or concerns we had. They live behind the property so they are literally steps away if you need them. The benefit of renting a home in a town like this is it gives more of a neighborhood feel and feels less like a touristy environment. I have family in the town but have always felt that all residents of the town are very friendly and helpful. If we find ourselves in a situation where we'd need to rent a home in this area again this would be our first choice. Thank you, Francine and Henry!
It was perfect for us.
We spent a long weekend with grandchildren (and their parents), just to get away together for a few days, and the space was perfect. Everything was pristine clean; the two bathrooms (and outdoor shower) were great for the 6 of us; and stores and restaurants were conveniently located. It was nice to have a private beach to walk to, but there are other beaches in town that were also wonderful to visit. We cooked a lot at home, and the kitchen is well-appointed for anything you're making. Beds are comfy, and it was nice to have a washer and dryer to use right in the house. Our hosts were kind, available, and accommodating but also gave us our space. We would definitely go back!
Impeccable property. Everything was in fantastic condition. Clean. Spacious. Relaxing. Comfortable.
Absolutely loved staying at this property. Everything was fresh, bright, neat, and kept very well. Very comfortable. Plenty of space for my family of 4 with room to spare. The owners were wonderful and made sure that everything was in order and let us know they were there to help if anything was needed during our stay. Definitely recommend this property and we plan on going back.
Stayed at Francine and Henry Cosker's beach home in Old Saybrook from Aug. 19- Aug. 27th.
with my niece and her two little sons. Their home was very comfortable and close to
everything. The Cosker's were available if we needed them, but they have given much
thought into supplying their guests with the comforts of home that we needed nothing more.
Beach and weather were also GREAT.
Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun Casinos are nearby and have excellent live shows; Outlet shopping in Westbrook and Clinton only minutes away.
