THE PERFECT Beach House !!

  • 5 of 5

This house is tastefully & expertly furnished.As you step into the interior you are immediately transported to your favorite days of lazing about on the beach with the aroma's of sea air & suntan lotion whirling around you.The home is VERY close to the Beach so even on cool or slightly rainy days you can walk the beach.The kitchen is well appointed with all the necessary appliance's and easy to maintain.The living room is very comfortable with plenty of seating for long conversations.TV has a large screen & directions to operate easy.The bedrooms also beautifully decorated and comfy.The closet's & drawers clean & ready to use.The bathroom sooo cute and very clean.The inside shower very good.The outside shower was fantastic.We loved it and used that shower almost exclusively.Overall this "Charming Beach House" was warm & inviting and was enjoyed very much by all guests on this memorable visit!!

Best stay of our trip. Absolutely perfect.

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I did a cross country motorcycle trip and this beach house was the best stay during our trip. It was perfect, private and better than expected. The owners were wonderful.

As pretty as the pictures and a wonderful location. Very clean, convenient to beach in lovely neighborhood of quiet streets, but close to everything. Tim & Sue are easy to work with.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

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 Also, the pictures are outdated, the kitchen has been upgraded and look likes the owners re-painted.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!

Cute as a button!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for three weeks during the summer of 2014. We are from the West Coast and have family in Madison which made it a perfect location. The proximity to the beach was wonderful. The owners were lovely to deal with and offered suggestions on sights to see and restaurants to visit. The fully fenced backyard made our stay wonderful as we could enjoy the patio for dining and we felt confident our kids could play safely in the yard. The nightly visits by the local ice cream truck were a huge hit for my kiddos! Can't wait to return!

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for three weeks during the summer of 2014. We are from the West Coast and have family in Madison which made it a perfect location. The proximity to the beach was wonderful, and the house had all the basic amenities needed. The owners were lovely to deal with and offered suggestions on sights to see and restaurants to visit. We are a family of five with very young children so the size of the house was not an issue for us. The fully fenced backyard made our stay wonderful as we could enjoy the patio for dining and we felt confident our kids could play safely in the yard. The nightly visits by the local ice cream truck were a huge hit for my kiddos! Can't wait to return!
