About Leah and Kenneth LeCara

Hello. We are the LeCara Family. My name is Kenneth and my wife is Leah. We are young family with 2 small children. We enjoy spending our free time beaching it and being active. We love the Niantic area, specifically Crescent Beach. It is just a wonderful place to make family memories. We grew up in Southeastern CT and still currently reside in New London, CT. I am a owner of a small painting company and my wife is an elementary teacher and artist who is staying at home right now to raise our children.

Leah and Kenneth LeCara purchased this house in 2013

Why Leah and Kenneth LeCara chose Connecticut

We chose to purchase this home in 2013 because we hope to some day make it our permanent home that we will pass down through the generations. Th biggest perk of the property is SiZE and LOCATION. The home is just so large we can have family members stay with us and they have their own section of the house separate from ours with its own kitchen. The design of the house is actually a duplex that we have converted into one large family home, but it still maintains the design. Very convenient for privacy when 2 or three families are spending time together. We love that the area is so family friendly and safe. The location just lends itself to enjoying the beach lifestyle. We enjoy walking to Frosty Treat for an ice cream with the kids or going on a date that we can WALK to. The ideal day can happen every day in the summer at this property. Kids can tucker themselves out playing at the beach and at McCooks park playground. Then we have lots of options for the evenings. Cooking out, walking to town for a movie. Hitting the irish pub. Its just ideal!

What makes this house unique

SIZE MATTERS! Because of the set-up of the home with the dual kitchens and 3 bathrooms, this property can easily be divided into two separate 1300 square foot units by closing doors on the first and third floor.

Fantastic stay again!

  • 5 of 5

For the second summer in a row, our family had an amazing stay at this beach house. The location is perfect, the house is spacious, the private beach is great. I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay again. Thank you again LeCara Family for letting us rent your perfect beach house! We would love to come back that same week next summer and every summer!

Great Space as far as location and number of people it can accomodate

  • 4 of 5

House perfect for beach vacation and can accommodate large families and groups. We were disappointed that some of the amenities listed weren't available,

bikes, boogie boards and house isn't fully air conditioned. Owner did respond immediately when we had a plumbing issue. All and all good trip and nice space that you can relax and can let teens/kids hang out.

We, family of 9, ages from 4 to 79, stayed in the house over the long weekend and all had an amazing time. House is big, clean and fully stocked. The location is perfect, few minutes walking to the beach, but on a quiet street. Parking is plentiful. Thank you.
