Serenity in Southport

  • 5 of 5

Located a very short walk to the Southport beach this spacious one-bedroom provided a serene getaway from Manhattan. The apartment is perfect: bright and tastefully decorated. The owner Jeff was very warm and welcoming, yet you have the feeling of being on your own private estate.

Wonderful retreat and return to our former community

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay in a charmingly renovated guest apartment adjacent to Southport Beach and Long Island Sound. The living quarters were bright and appealing with plenty of natural light. The amenities were top notch and inviting. Jeff has been a gracious host. Our time here was far too short.

Great location, great apartment, great everything!

  • 5 of 5

We took the apartment at relatively late notice over Presidents' Day weekend. It was perfect for our needs. We are 2 plus dog, and we were made to feel extremely welcome. We arrived late in the evening and the apartment was ready for us. Instructions on arrival (and departure) were available and clear.

The apartment was very clean, temperate, nicely decorated, bright and quiet. It also felt very secure. It is a very short walk to Southport beach. An easy walk to the village center and to the harbor. Short drives to dining options on the old post road and to those of Westport, together with shopping and more beaches.

We were lucky to meet the owner Jeff, who lives onsite, he was laid back and welcoming - just like the property. I'd recommend the apartment without hesitation. Thank you.

Great rental, we recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Very pretty little apartment right near the beach. My husband and 5 year old daughter stayed for 5 nights and the apartment had everything we needed, and we really enjoyed the easy access to the beach, not to mention the fact that Jeff had beach chairs and a wagon for our use. The kitchen was very well equipped. We would agree with another reviewer, that we weren't crazy about the coffee machine, but we ended up bringing our own which was fine. It was great having central air in the apartment, but the windows were really great as well and a nice breeze ran through the apartment most of the time. We were able to squeeze the three of us in the apartment using an air mattress for our daughter in the bedroom, but it was a little tight. We definitely recommend--it's a very pretty area and very close to anything you would need.
