Notes:
A care-free environment for a good vacation. A quiet environment away from traffic since it is located near the railroad tracks for Amtrak. A few trains go quickly by, but it provides the advantage that few cars drive by. The 15 mile/hour speed limit, combined with the lack of traffic, make it a safe and relaxing place for those with children. If you come, you will probably come back.

Great beach house for the price!

  • 5 of 5

This cozy little home is perfect for a family getaway to the connecticut coastline. My family and I stayed here while we waited to close on our new house and it was perfect for us. The house was clean and well functioning.

A great place to stay and a wonderful owner to work with

  • 5 of 5

First and foremost the owner, Michael was a superb to work with. Family members were coming to CT for a funeral. We were all scheduled to arrive Jan 4, yes the same day as the blizzard. All four of our flights from CA and MI were all canceled. We were all rescheduled for the next day. The communications with Michael was timely and accurate. Everything in the home worked perfectly. His home was warm and welcoming. The home provided us a calm and inviting environment to relax and unwind. This place is number one on our list when we need a large cozy home to stay in. Jim

Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, clean, nicely furnished, well maintained home in a peaceful area. The patio is wonderful to relax on & trains truly weren't that bothersome as they passed quickly and weren't overly loud - never interrupted my sleep! Rented while working in the area for several weeks, it was fantastic to have everything needed to be comfortable; nearby groceries & shopping made this "home away from home". Not having opportunity to use the recreational amenities, it's nice those things are available and I would highly recommend this home for vacation also.

Mike was wonderful to work with & quickly addressed the few small issues that arose, and it was my pleasure to meet this gentleman. I would definitely rent this home again should I ever be in CT - whether for work or vacation. Grazie, Mike, for everything :)

Very comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

The 8 of us were very comfortable in Michael's beach house - very good linens, great kitchen, air conditioning worked well, great deck and grill, bathrooms well-equipped, easy walk to the beach. An easy week for us.

On the not-so-good side, passing trains were frequent but not difficult to adapt to. The spiral staircase was very narrow and difficult for some of us to manage.

Owner's Response: I was glad the family had a good time as they celebrated Thanksgiving there. The house accommodated their family of 10, The house is bigger than it looks because there is a downstairs area, with windows opening to the yard.
