Great for families with kids! As one of our guests wrote: 'The smiles on my children's faces were wonderful! They also loved the toys in the house. Ocean Beach Park was a very nice treat. What a beautiful spot! Thanks for renting to us on such short notice. Your beautiful home has been the highlight of our two week vacation, including D.C. and NYC! (Michelle W., Oregon, 7/1/2013)

Remember when you were a kid and the whole family went to a real old-fashioned beach and boardwalk? A 3 minute walk away, Ocean Beach Park recreates that era, with its half-mile long white sand beach and boardwalk. Enjoy the amusement rides, waterslides, miniature golf, food and ice cream, Workout World (WOW) Fitness Center, nature preserve and trails, Olympic-sized pool, children's playground and huge video arcade. Young kids will enjoy the free children's splash park! See the weblink below for all the events and entertainment schedules for Ocean Beach Park.

(Daily passes for the pool, waterslides and rides are available for purchase at the park). Weekly passes are available for Workout World.

Launch our two-person kayak (or your own boat) on Alewife Cove, just a stone's throw away, and explore the Ocean Beach Wildlife preserve and miles of scenic areas of coastal Long Island Sound by water. See the weblink below for more pictures of the house and surrounding area.

A short drive away are two of the world's largest casinos, Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods. In addition to casino gaming and shopping, the casinos provide name entertainment, great dining and professional sports. The family will LOVE the Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville at the Mohegan Sun! Rent our house for less than rooms at the casino and save your money for the games! See the weblink below for all the events and entertainment schedules for the Mohegan Sun casino.

About Randy and Carolyn

We are Randy and Carolyn and we have lived in New London for about ten years and now are the proud owners of three homes. Two of the homes are located near the beautiful New London Harbor - these are our rental homes which we are happy to share with guests from all over the United States and elsewhere in the world! We love tending our homes and preparing them for our guests.

Randy and Carolyn purchased this house in 2005

Why Randy and Carolyn chose Connecticut

This home is so close to Ocean Beach Park! It is located in a friendly and quiet neighborhood. The area is beautiful for walking, jogging, or bike riding. The front and back porches, private back yard and proximity to Ocean Beach Park make this a favorite of our guests.

What makes this house unique

If Ocean Beach Park is where you want to be, then this is the home for you! You will love our new backyard patio!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Carolyn and Randy, we had a great time visiting your great vacation home. As you know, we were here for a memorial for our mother. Four of her five children plus her grandchildren and in-laws were able to be here. Your home helped us manage this rite of passage - the last of our parents and parents-in-law. Thanks so much and good luck to you both!

Great location!!

  • 4 of 5

Just a short walk to the beach, our kids were able to

Be independent and explore the wonders and games at the beach without hovering adults. The house has a sweet backyard with a picnic table so we ate all our meals outside.

Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our vacation in New London at this home. Lots of bedrooms and bathrooms. Kitchen well stocked. Kayak available. Walk to the beach and pool. Plenty of cleaning and laundry supplies. Children loved the games and beach toys. Sightseeing nearby. All in all a perfect place. We would love to come back.

Great location and wonderful owners to work with

  • 5 of 5

I was so happy with our stay while in New London during our son's graduation. I looked for a home that would accommodate 5 adults and 2 children, and this place had plenty of beds to fit everyone. This home had everything we needed to cook, clean, do laundry, entertain our little ones with a family room of game boards and toys and just relax after a full day of graduation activities. From the moment we made our reservation, Randy and Carolyn were quick to answer any questions we had via email and phone. Glad we had a chance to meet them before we left - great home and lovely couple! Thank you again!

Our trip to the ocean

  • 4 of 5

We were attracted to this area because we could be at the ocean in less than an 8 hour drive from our home. Fans of "Daddy Jack's Cooking with the Blues" YouTube cooking classes, we also hoped to meet Jack Chaplin at his restaurant in New London. This rental property was very roomy and had everything we required. It was so nice that most kitchen staples were there for our use. It was pleasant sitting in the private back yard while our dinner grilled over the coals. The beach is 5 mins walk from the home--Ocean Park also has a swimming pool, water slide, mini putt, and events like movie night and live bands. Fun things we did included: ferry to Block Island and seeing the sites by moped, shopping and eating in Mystic seaport, drove to NYC to visit the 9/11 museum. A vacation with a bit of everything!
