Growing up in Neptune Park and spending summers here, I became very familiar with this house & what it has to offer. I truly loved it especially the location. My bus stop was right in front!

Rustic charming house with beautiful wood floors. Close access to ocean beach. amenities need update

  • 3 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay however one full bathroom for five rooms was insufficient the bathroom and showers in basement were not convenient to access - steep stairs ,musty and dusty. This house has potential but needs update. Owners were very helpful and friendly and have indicated upgrades are forthcoming.

Charming beach house in New London

  • 5 of 5

My multi generational family rented this house for one week. We enjoyed our stay so much that we immediately planned to rent it for 2 weeks next season. The house is spacious with a wrap around porch and has the charm of old New England that is difficult to find. I spent every summer in a very similar cottage as a child and found myself feeling at home immediately. It is equipped with everything you may need, including a washer and dryer and showers in the basement. My extended family lives in the area, so having a large dining room and kitchen was a major plus. The beaches are pristine and private. The area has back roads that are excellent for bike riding.

If you like to take day trips, there are many interesting places to visit. Mystic Seaport and Mystic Aquarium are just a 20 minute drive. The Block Island ferry, museums, and restaurants are just a short ride in downtown New London. I can never get my fill of whole belly clams, lobster rolls, and fish & chips.

Jane and Dave are excellent hosts and always available to answer any questions.

Don't miss the opportunity to experience this very special house for your vacation.

Beautiful New England Home very close to Ocean Beach Park!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely home for a week with friends and family. First, Jane and David were excellent to work with and communication was A+! The home greeted us with a nice wrap-a-round porch which we enjoyed on a regular basis. The home offers a spacious living room and updated kitchen. There was a table in the kitchen and also a large dining table in the dining room. Also, there is a convenient half bath off the kitchen. There are 5 bedrooms upstairs and a full bathroom. The guys loved that there were 2 showers in the basemenr. We loved having a full size washer/dryer in the basement as well. This home worked great to accommodate our needs. We were in the area for a festival that was held at Ocean Beach Park/Boardwalk which was very close walking distance. There are a few uneven floors, and it never stopped us from having an incredible vacation and memories to last a lifetime!

50th anniversary family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent a week at this lovely home, It was a multigenerational gathering, and there was room for everyone. The beds were very comfortable, the showers nice, and the location was great. The private beaches were nice and clean and close enough to walk to easily. The owners were so nice to deal , and there were lots of activities to do ( MIchael's ice cream) nearby. I would definitely stay there again.

Wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently rented this house for week while my friend house-hunted and we attended a wedding. We had a few other couples stay in the house as well who were guests at the wedding. It was so spacious and perfect for our size group. I loved all the seating in the living room so that everyone could hang out together. The beds were nice and the rooms had dressers that you could put your stuff in so you could really get comfortable. I loved that there were two eating areas so that you really didn't have to take turns sitting down to eat. The private beach was SO close-about a two minute walk. The house also has a wrap-around porch which is perfect for enjoying the cooler New England summer air (cooler compared to St. Louis). Overall our experience was really great. Jane and David were so nice and accommodating. I loved working with them. Neighbors seemed nice as well, which is always a plus.

Great place for a group

  • 5 of 5

I booked this location for a girls weekend. We had a big group and were totally comfortable in the house at all times. The living room is spacious and cozy. The dining room table seats large groups just fine as long as you don't mind being a little close. The private beach is great! We were there a little early in the season but it wasn't crowded or busy. The showers in the basement are very basic locker room style but totally functional. If you are looking to take cabs anywhere it is an absolute pain. The renters are beyond helpful and a pleasure to work with. This is my first rental experience and I have been beyond happy with it.

This area is not only beautiful but there is so much for everyone in your family to do! The private beaches alone are breathtaking. While sitting on the white sandy beach looking out at Long Island sound you can see ferries, sailboats, Fishers Island and two historic lighthouses. Smell the salt air, feel the sea breeze, hear the waves & the fog horn! It's fun and relaxing just taking it all in.
