About Karen Calvanese
We purchased this 'cottage' and turned it into a home where our four children enjoyed the last 24 summers. Wonderful memories are carried with me at all times. We now mostly live in Old Lyme, CT. We are actually from Plantsville, CT, about 50 minutes from here. We would live our summers here in Westbrook and then back to Plantsville for the school year. Now, being empty nesters, we would love to see our Westbrook home enjoyed by others who long to be near the ocean.
Karen Calvanese purchased this House in 1989
Why Karen Calvanese chose Westbrook Center
It's directly on the beach in a quiet family friendly neighborhood. It's easily accessible from I-95 and Rt 9 and offers many attractions nearby.
What makes this House unique
After searching for several years, we knew we had finally found the right summer home. The house at the time needed a lot of work, but the road was quiet which was a major concern for us having young children and the beach wasn't rocky which was a big concern as well. We knew we could always turn the house into a home we could love, but the road and the beach were unchangeable. We hated to leave come the school year. Now that our children are grown we have used this Westbrook home in the off season as well. It is beautiful in the winter and even quieter.

Bright and cheery!
Very well taken care of and clean. Beautiful location, owners seem to care a lot!
Thank you Angela!! I’m very pleased to know you were happy with your stay in my home over the Holiday Season. Please keep me in mind for your future travel needs. Happy 2018!
The four of us (three adults and a teen) had a wonderful stay over the Thanksgiving holiday week. If you check in on a sunny day (which we did), the house and views are stunning. My in-laws (who live on the waterfront in an extremely fancy house and, thus, high standards) and nieces came by to see the house and they too said “wow, nice”!
The house is peaceful, literally steps from the beach, and is so clean (spotless). I have to say, it must be truly incredible in the summer months. Karen, the host, is very responsive and accommodating. Highly recommend!
Thank you very much! I love hearing my travelers were happy and enjoyed my home. I have to agree that the view is spectacular! I hope you keep me in mind for your future travel needs.
House is very spacious and well equipped. Great views of the Sound. Close to restaurants.
I love hearing my travelers were pleased with my home and their stay! Please keep me in mind for your future travel needs. Thank you for your kind words.
Perfect as always. The view from any room is breathtaking. Can't wait to go back.
I’m very pleased to know you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your kind words. I look forward to having you return for your next visit!
Absolutely beautiful location!
Rented this house to attend a family wedding. First impression is the pictures don't do this place justice. Right on the ocean, beautiful inside and out. Neighbors are close by but everyone was VERY friendly. Weather was a bit rainy but that didn't stop us from waking up early to search for sea glass and shells during low tide. We will be back!
Thank you Kathryn, I’m happy to know you were more than pleased with my home. Look forward to having you return!
Wonderful time with the family. Home has everything you need, unbelievable. The picture here does not do any justice. Now there are beautiful flower boxes under windows. And beautiful snowball bushes(can't remember the correct name). 🙂�🙂�🙂�
Thank you for your review! Very happy to know you enjoyed your stay. The bushes are hydrangeas but my grandmother always called them snowballs too!
