My husband, teenage son and I recently stayed at this little gem for several days and it could not have been a better experience. We were back for a high school reunion and I didn't want to feel like an out-of-towner staying at an impersonal motel. This was the perfect alternative. The owners were so gracious and welcoming. We ended up arriving in the middle of the night and departing similarly thanks to plane snafus, and the apartment is private enough that we thankfully didn't completely disturb our landlords. The apartment is even better in person than the pictures. Plenty of room, well-stocked kitchen, and having a washer and dryer was amazing! Would stay there again in a heartbeat! And hope that we get the chance to! Thank you Carrie & Ken!

Peaceful and private retreat

  • 5 of 5

The hosts are extremely hospitable. They go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. It is very relaxing to sit in their meticulous yard. It is a very convenient and quiet location. The apartment is spotless! We were welcomed with a lovely basket of snacks and beautiful flowers.The bed is very comfortable. It was great to have a washer and dryer for our extended stay. We have family in the area and plan on staying there again! it is a little piece of paradise!

Owner's Response: Dear Bill & Peggy, We so appreciate your kind words. Its so nice to host such wonderful people as you. Ken was bummed he wasn't able to say good bye. I'm adding cushions to your favorite chairs outside for more comfort when you return! Perhaps an umbrella too! Hope to see you soon! Best, Carrie & Ken

Owner's Response: Hi Steven, It was great meeting you and your family. You all were so wonderful. It was fun chatting with you and reminiscing about Westport's old stomping grounds and people. I wish we had more time to chat. It was nice to hear about some of the new restaurants in town that you visited too. Thanks for the umbrella. Come back again soon. Carrie

Great place to stay! Wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Our long-term stay (almost a month) at this rental was a very positive experience. This complete apartment on second floor of barn-style garage was very clean, nicely furnished and decorated, and in an upscale, quiet neighborhood. For our long-term stay, being able to cook complete meals in a kitchen stocked with all necessary appliances, dishware and cookware, and doing laundry with the washer & dryer in the bathroom was very convenient. We also appreciated the large screen tv with satellite and internet access as well. The hosts were very friendly, attentive to any needs promptly, and provided plenty of assistance when questioned about the location of places to go and things to do. The welcome sign and basket of goodies upon arrival were a nice touch. Easy access to freeway and commuter train to NYC was great. We also enjoyed the very short drive to the state park beach and the outdoor music concerts along the river in town. Also special was seeing the deer in the yard at night. Rocking in the Adirondack chairs on the large lawn area was very relaxing. I would highly recommend this rental if you are in the area.

Great little hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

We are frequent visitors in Westport, and we're very excited to discover this comfortable and quiet little apartment above the garage! The place is decorated in a pleasing beach theme and had most everything we needed to function as our home away for several days. The bed was comfortable, though I was glad we had brought our own softer pillows. It was great to have a washer and dryer in the unit! The hosts were wonderful! We were greeted with a lovely welcome basket, and they were quick to respond to any needs we had! We'll certainly stay again!

Owner's Response: Hi Kate, It was so nice to meet you and your husband. I can't begin to tell you how happy we are that you discovered us and that you were so pleased with your accommodations. So sorry about your pillow situation but I, too, am happy you resolved it. That's one of those things that is such a hard call since everyone likes a different style. I'll be sure to look into some softer pillows for your next visit. We hope you come back to soon!
