Guestbook comments from the owner

Date of Stay July 8, 2013

Helpful votes:0/0.

The house was bright, clean and welcoming, a little nicer than the pictures. The AC helped tremendously since the temps. were in the 90's while we were there. Backyard was nice as well we just didn't have time to enjoy it more. Nice neighborhood and was great to have a short walk to the beach. The owner was pleasant, helpfull and available for any questions. We would recommend this property to friends or relatives interested in visiting this area. We may choose to visit again.

A rare gem

  • 5 of 5

The Wells family has a beautiful and comfortable home. Although we had only three people, it could easily have accommodated the six as stated. Kate was very helpful in her suggestions of activities. The location of the house made those activities very accessible. The house was perfect for a week getaway.

This a great house located in New London . A short walk from the house will take you to Neptune Association private beaches The house is also is next door to Ocean Beach Park. The home owner, Kate, has thought of everything to make this house very welcoming to the renter , from her nautical decorations to her beautiful vases of hydrangeas from her yard.

New London,in general, needs more to do on rainy days with kids. One night we decided to get ice cream. We went to Fred's Shanty at 8:15 p.m. They had closed early because it was raining. There was nothing open at Ocean Beach park either.The Monday night cruise night was cancelled . We could have walked around and looked at the cars and had ice cream. So, New London, even though you are a beach town, visitors need something to do with kids on rainy days!!

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing 4 day stay at the Golden house. The house is immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. Everything we needed was there and Kate is super friendly and responsive. There are 3 private beaches a half a block down the street with hardly anybody on them. We fished off the rocks while our kids played in the water. Could not have asked for a better stay.

The house was very comfortable, clean, pretty and functional. The beach was great.

  • 5 of 5

Kate was very helpful and communicative. The house was well-set up for our family. It was a lovely place to hang out. The back patio provided a welcoming spot for a family dinner. In early June, the weather is a little bit cold for swimming in Long Island Sound, but the beach was easy to access and pleasant. We also love nearby Ocean Beach.

This house was the perfect place for our long weekend - our experience could not have been better!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was the perfect spot for myself and 5 friends to stay for our nearby college reunion. The pictures don’t do it enough justice. It was comfortable, clean and well-furnished. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to use the beach passes provided, but only because the weather didn’t cooperate when we had time between college events. The owner was friendly and communicative; even going so far as to recommend some local restaurants for us to try. We would definitely recommend this property and would stay here again!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was perfect for our week in New London celebrating our son's graduation from USCGA. The house was spacious, very clean and in an excellent location. The owner, Kate, made sure we had everything we needed for our stay and was very accommodating and gracious when we had a last minute change in plans and had to extend our stay an additional day. Thank you Kate and family for sharing your home with us during this exciting time!
