5BR, Lovely Beach House with Private Beach

Bedrooms 5
Space 1,800 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 - 30 nights


About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This lovely beach house on a quiet cul-de-sac has rights to a private beach just one block away and is perfect as your home away from home. The comfortable, spacious home features 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room, dining room, family/TV room, sun room, patio with Weber gas grill, washer/dryer and modern kitchen.

The house is within walking distance from Ocean Beach which is very kid-friendly featuring mini golf, video games and a nice wooden boardwalk. We are 10 minutes from I-95, 2.5 hours from NYC, 1.5 hours from Boston and 20 minutes from Mystic which has an aquarium, seaport and great dining. The New London area has great restaurants, museums and activities for both children and adults -- it’s also less than 30 minutes from the Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun Casinos.

Please note, our home does not have air conditioning, but that is common in our neighborhood. Everyone has their own personal preference, but we find it is only needed about 3-5 humid nights during the summer.

About Seth

Married with a family and living in NJ.

Seth purchased this house in 2004

Why Seth chose Connecticut

This area is very family friendly. The sand on the beaches is very soft and the waves from the Long Island Sound are tame as compared to beaches on the ocean.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time. It was our first family vacation in New London and we liked everything about the area. Especially the beaches. It was so convenient to walk to Neptune Beach with our gear. We did this many times.

The house was great. It has a very homey feel to it. The living room and dining room were our favorites.We especially appreciated the backpack chairs and the HUGE beach towels. We brought our own but used yours !!

The outdoor shower was just what we needed after our beach time.

Again we had a great time.

Great location for beach family fun

  • 5 of 5

We really liked this house, and plan to come back next year. It is close to the beach, and had plenty of room on the first floor for our family to hang out. I would recommend it. Bedrooms were good size too.

We stayed in late does not have air conditioning.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Arrived with my family and some extended family. House had a great layout for letting kids play or watch tv while adults were nearby, but separated.

Beach was beautiful and waves were perfect for our younger travelers (age 6 and 4). Very close to beach - about 1.5 short blocks to the water.

Will definitely be back next year!

Great week in New London,Ct.

  • 4 of 5

The house is very convenient to the beach and having beach passes to Neptune Beach is a bonus. It's proximity to Ocean Beach Park is great also.

We liked the house and were most happy with the living and dining rooms. Bed rooms were just right also.

There was plenty of room for the six of us to spread out and our granddaughter commandeered the den for her play room.

The enclosed back porch allowed us to keep our chairs and other beach stuff dry on the one day that it rained. Having extra beach chairs,and umbrella and those HUGE beach towels was a bonus also.

Comfy family retreat and close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family. Lots of room, and well divided so the kids could watch tv in one room while the adults watched in a separate room. The kids loved the water, and playing in the sand. It was a huge plus that we were a short walk to Ocean Beach. We played miniature golf and had ice cream there one evening. The board walk at Ocean Beach was also nice for our early evening stroll.

Wonderful Wedding Week!

  • 5 of 5

This house is comfortable, beautiful, convenient and spacious. My husband and I rented the house for our wedding week and everything worked out wonderfully. Our wedding was at Harkness Memorial State Park which was only a 5 minute drive from the house which made everything so easy. We were able to have our wedding party stay there comfortably without a hitch. For our other guests hotels were about 15 minutes away which was also convenient. We were all able to relax on the private beach, which can have 10 people max at a time, but when there were more people we just walked over to Ocean Beach.

We used the grill to have a BBQ rehearsal dinner in the backyard and we were able to use the porch and backyard furniture for seating.

The porch also doubled as a "greenhouse" for when the wedding flowers were delivered which would have been a disastrous experience at a hotel.

Seth was very accommodating and provided all the information we needed for keys and what not.

THE ONLY WARNING IS the attendant at the private beach is very curt, he takes his job very seriously and treats people quite harshly if he suspects they are sneaking onto the beach. Our first encounter was not pleasant and borderline interrogation/harassment (he asked for the name of the owner of the house, what color it was, the street etc). However, once he got to know us he was fine. Otherwise the neighbors were all very friendly and tolerated our bustling house with no problem.

This is a great house for a family reunion, vacation, etc.

If you are getting married over at Harkness I highly suggest renting this place to make your wedding into a vacation week!
