About Joann Pappaceno

I grew up in Newington, CT and I have spent every summer down at Sound View Beach since I was 3 years old.

Joann Pappaceno purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Joann Pappaceno chose Old Lyme

My family has owned the adjacent cottage for 57 years and thought it would be nice to own another piece of property to enjoy and see others enjoy the beach as I have done.

Wonderful Stay, Amazing weather

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay this year and the weather was beautiful the entire stay! As usual the house was in perfect condition and our host very pleasant. House is a short walk to the beach, which is great because it limits the noise from the beach while being close. New refrigerator this visit which was great! I love this place! Wish I could stay more often. A++++++++++++++ as always! For those interested who live further away, places to see in the area include the BOOK BARN and downtown Niantic for small stores and more restaurant choices. Also a short ride to attractions/eateries in Old Saybrook, Essex and Chester. Just a great place to be.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Marty! It is always a pleasure when you rent because I know you enjoy the cottage and location to the fullest. I also love that you treat the cottage as your own and leave it in tip top condition when you check out. Look forward to having you again next year!

Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great experience staying in Old Lyme at Soundview Beach. This house met all of our needs to be close to the beach and have a nice place to spend time together. We especially enjoyed the screened-in front porch for having meals and spending time playing games. I was very satisfied with the property, and I hope to visit again!

3rd Stay (10 days) Excellent as always

  • 5 of 5

Place was spotless upon arrival for a 10 day stay. Weather was perfect with not a drop of rain over my stay. Convenient location close enough to the beach to walk in minutes, but not so close as to be kept awake by evening noise. Nice upgrades to fixtures , wall art and screened in front room. Booking was easily set up with the owner who is accessible and easy to work with. I highly recommend this reasonably priced rental for summer fun.

Second stay A++++++++++++ Great!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay in a short period of time. I thank the owner for taking me in on very short notice. A great place to unwind and I would recommend it to everyone! I found being familiar with the place helped the second time around and I enjoyed the cooler nights. Place is kept in great shape, owner is very accessible and easy to work with.

Nice place, great host, fair pricing

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a long Labor Day Weekend and had a wonderful time. Even though I wound up with more guests than planned I had a wonderful host who had the place in great shape and was staying right next door. Only recommendation I would have is to add a gas grille to backyard for outdoor eating. Thank you for a nice time :)
