GREENWICH WINTER WEEKEND GETAWAYS! SKI BROADWAY! NOW ALSO BOOKING FOR SUMMER!

WALK TO THE WATER AND THEN CURL UP BY THE FIRE IN THIS SPACIOUS, RELAXING SHORE COLONIAL NEAR THE BEACH. FIVE BEDROOMS , THREE AND A HALF BATHS. HUGE, LEVEL PLAY YARD, LIVING ROOM WITH DEEP WOOD-BURNING FIREPLACE! LARGE DINING ROOM WITH WINDOW SEAT AND STAINED-GLASS DRY BAR, CATHEDRAL-CEILING FAMILY ROOM WITH SKYLIGHTS OFF THE KITCHEN LEADING TO THE LARGE DECK WITH GAS AND CHARCOAL GRILLS. HARDWOOD FLOORS THROUGHOUT! LARGE PLAYROOM THAT OPENS TO THE YARD. SEPARATE LAUNDRY ROOM. THIS RELAXING HOME IS FULLY EQUIPPED WITH SHEETS AND TOWELS, KITCHEN EQUIPMENT, DISHES, CUTLERY AND COOKWARE. YOU CAN WALK TO THE NEARBY COVE WHERE YOU CAN KAYAK, PADDLE-BOARD, FISH, SAIL AND FEED THE DUCKS, GEESE AND SWANS. JUST A SHORT WALK TO THE TRAIN (49-MINUTE EXPRESS TO GRAND CENTRAL) AND THE VILLAGE. OWNER PAYS FOR ALL EXPENSES. SEPARATE STUDIO NOT INCLUDED.

PEOPLE SEEM TO LOVE MY HOUSE AND REMARK UPON HOW FRIENDLY IT IS THE MINUTE THEY STEP INTO THE LIVING ROOM! MY GUESTS APPRECIATE HOW SPACIOUS MY HOUSE IS AND YET HOW IT AFFORDS MANY PRIVATE SPACES TO BE ON ONE'S OWN AWAY FROM OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS OR GUESTS. SEVERAL SELF-EMPLOYED GUESTS HAVE APPRECIATED HOW MY WIFI EXTENDS EVERYWHERE INCLUDING THE DECK.

MY HOUSE IS UNIQUE IN THAT IT GIVES THE FEELING OF BEING FAR AWAY BY THE BEACH IN EAST HAMPTON OR NANTUCKET AND YET IT IS ONLY ONE HOUR AWAY FROM MANHATTAN BY EXPRESS TRAIN AND THIRTY-FIVE MINUTES BY CAR AT OFF-PEAK HOURS. BEING ABLE TO WALK ON SIDEWALKS TO NEARBY TOMAC COVE TO FISH, SAIL, KAYAK, PADDLE BOARD OR FEED THE DUCKS, GEESE AND SWANS IS A MUCH-APPRECIATED BENEFIT MY GUESTS TELL ME. AS WELL AS BEING ABLE TO BIKE OR JOG TO THE BEACH AT GREENWICH POINT IN ONLY A FEW MINUTES. WALKING TO THE TRAIN TO COMMUTE FOR PARENTS AND BIKING TO THE TOWN FOR ICE CREAM OR PIZZA FOR THEIR CHILDREN IS MUCH ENJOYED.

THAT ALL EXPENSES ARE INCLUDED IS A UNIQUE BENEFIT OF MY HOME. THIS MEANS THAT GUESTS PAY NOTHING EXTRA FOR HEATING, AIR CONDITIONING, WIFI, CABLE, YARD CARE, TRASH REMOVAL OR SNOW REMOVAL.

NOT PUTTING DOWN ANY SECURITY DEPOSIT BECAUSE VRBO OFFERS PROPERTY DAMAGE INSURANCE AND BEING ABLE TO PAY BY CREDIT CARD THAT VRBO ALSO OFFERS MAKES RENTING MY HOUSE VERY CONVENIENT AND COST-EFFECTIVE. THAT MY HOUSE CAN SLEEP TWELVE IN BEDS AND FOURTEEN IF TWO VERY COMFORTABLE COUCHES ARE USED MAKES MY HOUSE EVEN MORE COST-EFFECTIVE FOR SHARES!

Beautiful old house in Old Greenwich, comfortably sleeps 10!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this property, Jim was a wonderful host, very responsive and accommodating. He was waiting for us when we arrived and had the house all ready. The house is full of nice, comfortable old furniture, and the kitchen is small but well appointed with everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again in the future, the location was perfect for us, thanks Jim!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month in the summer here with our family. It was an absolutely wonderful stay. Jim was great, responsive, and accommodating. The location and home was really nice - with enough space to enjoy in the house and a very easy access to beach and other outdoor activities. We had friends and family over who loved it too. We had a lovely summer - and would definitely recommend it anytime.

Greenwich Point Beach

You can walk to Tomac Cove from my house in five minutes. There you can launch a kayak, sunfish or dingy. You can also feed the ducks, swans and geese and fish for flounder, snappers, blackfish and, on occasion, blues and stripers. I used to keep my boat on a mooring in the cove.

Greenwich Point Park is a short bike ride from my house. You'll find a great beach with life guards and two concession stands. With a permit you can take clams, oysters, and mussels. You can also fish for large blues and stripers, take sailing lessons, picnic, wind sail, and jog or bike ride.
