Why Richard Greer chose Connecticut

Lovely and pristine getaway, in a cherished family home for decades.

What makes this house unique

Our family fell in love with this beach front home because of its extraordinary views as well as the graceful floor plan, that is perfect for both entertaining a large group or cozy and alone. We have enjoyed many summers as well as holidays in this quiet and peaceful setting, relaxing to the sound of the waves breaking on the beach wall.

Great time at The Gulls

  • 5 of 5

Family gathered for a relaxing weekend, and that's what we got. The location is prime, can see the ocean from pretty much everywhere. There is a stone wall around the front and side which was great to keep the toddler and dog safe from running out. The traffic around is on the low side which is also very nice. There is plenty of room for everyone and the large lawn was nice for playing games , sitting out watching the ocean views, and for a fire at night. The fire pit was provided as well as a charcoal grill. All the chairs you could need is also provided. The kitchen had everything I needed to make big family dinners. There are plenty of bedrooms with adequate bedding for everyone. Sheets and blankets were provided. Towels, both beach and bathing were provided. Cell phone service was not great, but we were on vacation so who cares. Internet service was very good, so if needed to contact outside world....

Richard was very helpful and accommodating. There was a large fruit basket with a note from Richard when we arrived ( nice touch). This was our first time renting a home for vacation and will not hesitate to do it again! Looking forward to coming back here...soon!

Charming, spacious retreat with unbroken views of the Long Island Sound

  • 5 of 5

We gathered for a family reunion and birthday celebration at this lovely, rambling home right next to the beach. The owner is very friendly and responsive and keeps the house with care; we found it beautifully clean and well appointed, and we had everything we needed. The furnishings are very comfortable, there's lots of great communal space inside and out, comfy bedrooms, great yard and a charming, cozy feel. Location is amazing -- in addition to the views there is immediate access to a small private beach and a beautiful walking path. It was just perfect.

Beautiful home in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The Gulls is a gracious home with all that one needs to have a relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable stay. The location along the shore of the Sound and in picturesque Old Saybrook makes for a great step away from the usual or frenetic. Simply sit back and enjoy. The owner could not have been more welcoming, which reflected the ambiance of the home itself.

Altogether a wonderful experience.

Everything You Need!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home- comfortable and peaceful. We played lawn games, and the huge living room was perfect for family game night. The view is outstanding! This was the perfect spot for our small family to meet up and reconnect! Richard is a wonderful host.

Great views great property

  • 5 of 5

Richard, thank you for your hospitality. House is very spacious with a place for everyone. We spent a long weekend in February for an 18th and 60th birthday celebration.

Kitchen is well appointed. We cooked in for two dinners ate out for lunch. Linens clean and furniture is comfortable and clean.

I could spend a week there sitting in the living room looking at the water and taking walks. In the summer sitting on the deck.

Great location near old saybrook, Westbrook, Clinton and various restaurants. There is a Big Y nearby to stock up on food for your stay.

Hope to visit again soon

Historic Old Saybrook where the Connecticut River meets the Long Island Sound is a classic New England sea side community and is well known for its abundance of stately shingled homes and historic districts. Conveniently located between Boston and New York city, Old Saybrook has long been a haven of summer retreat. The historical town center features charming shops and restaurants, several historic churches and most notably The Kate (the Katherine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center) which is famous for its theatrical productions, live music performances, and classic movie showings all year long.
