This family home is located in the desirable east end of Mason's Island. There are sweeping views of Long Island Sound, Enders Island and Fisher's Island. Sailboats and sea life abound. If inspired one can move from sitting on the deck to paddling a kayak in these protected waters in a matter of seconds. It takes about an hour to circumnavigate the island.
There is very nice swimming off the dock when the tide is not at its lowest and Williams Beach, great for small children is about a mile away. Enjoy the outdoor shower to rinse off the salt water after a swim.
The home is available to rent for several weeks in the summer and much of the off season. The spring and fall seasons on the water are spectacular. Celebrating Thanksgiving or Christmas in this home is very convenient for families spread across the northeast as the dining room table comfortably seats ten people. Snowy weekends in the winter besides being beautiful are particularly peaceful. For this reason many groups return year after year.
This house is ideal for for families who are interested in a relaxed setting for a vacation or long weekend or for old friends gathering to reconnect. The home is close to the Mystic Seaport Museum and the Mystic Aquarium, the casinos, wineries and the Rhode Island beaches. There are two golf courses with public access locally. Often ignored are the excellent fishing opportunities, both party boats and charters are available locally. Catches include fluke, striped bass, bluefish, sea bass but also tuna and shark for those willing to venture offshore.
This home is in a quiet, gated residential community/property association. This property association places considerable restrictions on those in the community and therefore those who rent. All need to respect land owner's privacy, personal property lines and sense of space. Our neighbors, most of whom are full time residents greatly value their privacy and the sense of serenity that embodies this community; it is important that we as owners respect our neighbor's desire to live in a tranquil setting. Finally, parking at the home is limited to 4 cars.
As mentioned previously there is a dock, guests desiring to bring a small boat will be considered. If guests have a larger boat (greater than 17 ft.) there are a number of local marinas that can provide a short term slip. While jet skis are not allowed two kayaks are available for renters to explore the shoreline and surrounding islands. Fishing from the kayaks (although not 'fishing kayaks') can be a thrill.
As there is no request for a security deposit and to insure the fit is good for the owner and renter alike, each prospective guest needs to be in touch with the owner by phone prior to securing a rental agreement.
