About Rich Willard

We are a family of four and love spending any free time that we get in Niantic. With our hectic schedules, as students in high school, college, teacher and business owner we take every opportunity to spend time at the beach. During our school breaks, we love to hang out on the beach searching for shells, kayaking, watching sailboats as they sail out of Niantic Bay Yatch Club, or walking into town.

Rich Willard purchased this house in 2013

Why Rich Willard chose Connecticut

As we looked at so many properties for months, we were drawn to 28 Shore Road because of its lovely beachfront location. The beautiful beachy area right outside our doorstep, the spectacular water views of Long Island Ferries, Race Rock Light House and Little Gull , not to mention our proximity to downtown Niantic were just a few reasons we couldn't pass on this property.

What makes this house unique

Unique private beach setting between huge rock and ledge outcroppings which makes this a great area to fish from or to stand and view the water.

Enjoy the beach in front of the house or just take steps to enjoy the expansive sands at the private Oak Grove Beach where one can find many beautiful shells. Take a stroll through the streets of the neighborhood or walk to Cresent Beach and grab a burger at The Stand. Walk on further and be sure to stop along the way to enjoy a tasty frozen treat at Frosty Treat. Continue your walk into downtown Niantic where Main Street will allow you to browse for books, antiques, chocolates, fine clothing, and even catch a movie.

Beach front on Niantic Bay. Views and your own Beach!
average rating of 5.0 based on 7 reviews


  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect family house, the kids loved it. The little alcove beach is perfect for kids, it was cool but that didn't stop them or me from playing outside!!! The views are so beautiful, I would never get tired of those gorgeous sunrises. The house is very clean with a great layout.

The kitchen is well stocked, plenty of linens and towels. The neighborhood is very quite with very little traffic which is nice for taking walks and riding bikes. We absolutely loved the little town of Niantic!!

Thank you Richard for being so accommodating, cant wait to come back in the summer.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We've rented this house twice. My husband and I have an 8 and 10yr old, and vacation with my in laws. The owner is easy to work with, and we've thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We like staying waterfront, and being close to the neighborhood beach and yacht club. It's great to watch the sailboat races from the family room, or porch. This home is in a great location to town also. We will rent this house again next summer

One of our best rental experiences!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a good rental experience on the CT shore and boy did we hit on the best! This home is exactly that! A home----cozy and immaculate, beautifully decorated and sensibly outfitted. The location is perfect as are the views of the Long Island Sound. Our family had such a good time! No one should think twice about renting this beachfront property. We can't wait to be returning guests next summer! Thanks to the owners for all their efforts to make their beautiful home available.

Wonderful fall family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (6 ppl total) stayed at the beachfront property in Niantic over Thanksgiving. I was a bit worried that the house would be cold since it's by the water, but the heating system is great and we really enjoyed our stay. The rooms and views are even better than pictured. Richard was also extremely accommodating. The whole family loved it and we will definitely be back!

Beach house on the water

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the house for a week in July . The house was very clean and in excellent condition . We found the house very comfortable, and the kitchen was fully stocked. We appreciated the central air conditioning on the first floor on very hot and humid days, although rare this summer. We enjoyed eating dinner on the patio by the water. We especially enjoyed looking out at the water from almost every window and hearing the water while going to sleep. We would definitely rent this house again in the future.

Family vacation with fishing, food and fun

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this wonderful home. During that time various siblings and spouses and their children stayed. The young kids really enjoyed the third floor man-cave. The kitchen had everything you need! The fishing was great. 1 24" black fish was caught along with a few others. The views of the ocean were just as you dream about.
