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.

Fantastic in every way

  • 5 of 5

First of all, we were greeted by a huge basket of fresh fruit upon entering the home. The house itself was truly amazing: large, airy and comfortable. There were books to read, the pantry was stocked, fresh linens and towels galore. The location was awesome as well. Close to the beach and all other places to see and eat in were near by. We had perfect weather every day for the entire week. I can't remember a better rental and hope to come back next summer.

The house was charming, and definitely met our needs with respect to space, furnishings, "equipment"

  • 5 of 5

As stated above, everyone in the family loved the home. It felt, well, homey. Location on the sound, and in what felt like a neighborhood rather than a commercial resort area, was also a plus. Richard was pleasant to deal with, including when I called with some questions. Kitchen was well-stocked, bedding etc. comfortable and, again, plenty of everything needed. Family enjoyed the view, plus walks and bike rides around the neighborhood. It suited our needs perfectly. Sorry we couldn't have met Richard in person. Ah well, perhaps next time.

Great oceanfront house

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 9 adults and 2 children who rented this stunning and spacious ocean front house in June, 2017. The house and location had so much to offer! The kitchen was well-equipped and had everything we needed and more! We were able to cook up a storm, enjoying the sunrises and sunsets overlooking the water and loved our daily meals on a beautiful patio overlooking the ocean.

The front yard is spacious and well-situated. Kids and adults alike enjoyed everything this ocean front yard had to offer! The ocean’s walking path was just a few steps from the house. This was a wonderful and very accommodating surprise for our active family!

The house has a very nice, airy living room overlooking the ocean in addition to the oceanfront den/bedroom.

The town of Old Saybrook has a lot to offer – we had an amazing vacation!

Thank you Richard for making it happen for our family!

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.
