About Justin Gouveia

My name is Justin gouveia and I manage this property for my parents. I work and live in a nearby town in connecticut and have spent many summers at this old Lyme property.

Justin Gouveia purchased this condo in 1986

Why Justin Gouveia chose Connecticut

As a child, I remember spending all day and night enjoying the sand and water as my parents watched comfortably from the deck. The beach is fi,led with children if all ages and it was always fun to play volleyball at the net nearby and have 20 other children join to make a huge neighborhood game. We would kick the soccer ball around the beach or throw the football, but my favorite were the large whiffle ball games we used to have. The best part of old Lyme as a child was after dinner when we used to walk to nearby Hartford avenue and my parents would buy me ice cream and take me to ride the carousel. I would always hustle a couple of dollars and spend an hour or so playing skeeball at the arcade.

As an adult, this place is even better. there is nothing better than catching up with your friends, enjoying the beautiful day, grilling endless amounts of food, and sipping on your favorite cocktail. I especially like when the sun goes down and the beach empties. You get to enjoy the beach peacefully and play card games or if you are feeling a little more adventurous that evening, walk over to Lenny on the beach or the pavilion , two local bars about 150 yards away, which are also Located on the beach. The pavilion is especially great as they are open during the day as well and always have a live band to enjoy.

What makes this condo unique

Amazing panoramic view of long island sound. Great place for people who like to take long walks along the beach. Volleyball court located directly adjacent to property and walking distance to all amenities.

Great place - loved it!

  • 5 of 5

I've been renting in Old Lyme for years and this place was by far the best! Condo is clean, the view from the deck was breathtaking, the neighbors were very nice and it was the most relaxing vacation we've ever had. Can't wait to go back next year!

Amazing beach front stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a wonderful weekend at this beautiful beach front condo. It is a perfect getaway location with a spectacular view. The owners were very accommodating, answered any questions we had and left the place in impeccable conditions. Aside from waking up to the ocean and being steps away from the sand, the condo is a short walk away from restaurants and shops. Enjoy relaxing on the patio or on the beach, going for a walk, visiting the ice cream shops, or going out for dinner and drinks. It is the perfect spot for families as well as young couples or groups of friends. We will definitely be going back and we can't wait!

Amazing Condo - Even better views

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week at this beautiful waterfront condo. The views are breath taking, the neighbors very friendly and welcoming, and the condo itself has plenty of natural sunlight, is clean, comfortable , and has all of the necessary utilities for a family getaway. The beach is clean with soft sand and plenty of room for all beach-goers.

The condo was exactly as the landlord described, and we could not be happier with our decision to stay here. Definitely will be staying here in the future. Can not wait to go back!

Prime Location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stay at this condo every year! If your looking for a prime location in Old Lyme this is it! Enjoy beach front meals on the deck/patio over looking the water. Steps to the beach! Walking distance to shops and The Pavilion (Old Lyme's most popular ocean front restaurant). Owners are very accommodating and keep the place in great condition. Can't wait to go back there this year. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone!!!

Condo was dirty and owner unresponsive

  • 1 of 5

The location of this condo is spot on. It's right on a private beach. As soon as we got there we noticed the place was a little dirty. We tried cleaning ourselves, but the vacuum had no suction and it was very low on cleaning supplies. You would think with there being a gap between check out and check in time that there would be some cleaning service. The bathroom fan did not work, the toilet leaked, and the screen was broken (the whole point of being on the ocean). We sent an email to the owner just letting him know that we are enjoying ourselves, but wanted to let him know of the lack of cleanliness as well as items not working/broken. We received no response. We ended up leaving 2 days early as the dirtiness of the place got to us especially having a toddler who plays on the floor that you can't vacuum. Again we sent a note to the owner that we were checking out early and again no response. Now we just wanted our deposit back. After a couple weeks of no deposit back, I sent another email (the phone number was going right to voicemail) asking about our deposit. Again no response. After a couple of weeks I contacted VRBO and filed a complaint. They claimed they can't give the money back, but that they take complaints very seriously. Now I had no choice, but to contact my credit card company and file a dispute. Unless you want to go through what we went through, don't rent this place. Very disappointing.
