Welcome to a piece of paradise on the Long Island Sound! This beautiful Cape Cod home features water views from a large, private porch and is just mere steps away from a private beach.

Nestled in the historic, private beach community of Neptune Park, the house is deeded to a serene, private stretch of beach with spectacular open views of the Long Island Sound. Sit on the white, sandy beach and see the famous Ledge Light Lighthouse, or better yet, take a tour of as many as 6 historic lighthouses aboard the high speed ferry that docks just out of downtown New London! Take a day trip aboard the ferry to beautiful Block Island, Fisher’s Island, or even Montauk, NY.
The house is also close to many other attractions, including both major Connecticut casinos, as well as many landmark Connecticut theaters, such as The O’Neill Theatre and The Garde Arts Theatre. Interested in a little sight seeing? In just 20-30 minutes, you could find yourself in either neighboring Mystic, CT or Watch Hill, RI.

Lovely home, fresh, bright and clean.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and had a fabulous time.
From the moment I walked in I could tell this was the perfect cottage for graduation weekend for me, my husband and his parents. It was close enough to Connecticut College for our kids to pop in and out during their very busy weekend. We had plenty of room, it was bright and airy, the kitchen was big and functional, the outdoor seating area, table and grill -all fantastic. Then there is the lovely pristine beach just a few steps away. Just wonderful. Highly recommend. Loved our stay and would go back to this cottage in a heartbeat!
Wonderful rental, great location!
We stayed here for a week in May, 2017 while attending our son's graduation festivities at the US Coast Guard Academy. The house was perfect for our family of 6. The location is very convenient, yet private. Delightfully decorated home and fully equipped. Direct access to beautiful beach.
Great weekend! Location is perfect!
We couldn't be happier with our stay in this beautiful home. It helped that the weather was perfect for stay. The home is well equipped and had everything we needed for our 3 night stay. Ashley was very responsive to questions and even allowed us a late checkout to maximize our stay. We we treated like "friends" all through the process. We wish we had more time to enjoy the beach area which we didn't get to until the last day. Don't miss at least walking on the beach area behind all of the big homes. We hope to rent again someday soon. Thanks Ashley and Doug!
Greg, thank you so much for your kind review of our home. We are so happy that you and your wonderful family enjoyed your stay and sincerely hope you will be back. You were a pleasure to work with!
I cannot say enough about this amazing beach house! It was very comfortable and cozy for our family's stay.
It is very tastefully decorated, clean, and generously appointed with all that one might need. Upon entering the home, it is apparent that the owners have a real sense of intended hospitality and comfort for their guests.
The close proximity to the beach is a great feature especially with small children going back and forth to the house.
The outdoor porch is also a great place for taking in a view of the water or for just relaxing and dinning.
Finally, and certainly not last is the fact that Ashley was one of the most pleasant owners that we have dealt with in our past vrbo rentals.
We are hopeful that our family will be fortunate enough to enjoy this beautiful rental in the future. Thanks again Ashley!
We stayed at this home in September for a weekend. It is beautifully decorated, in a thoughtful, light, beachy way. The home was very, very clean and well appointed. It is is very close to a private beach, which has its own walkway. The neighborhood is very quaint, all the homes are roughly from the early 1900s, and wonderfully maintained. Kitchen had everything we needed. Linens were pretty and new. Highly recommend.
