About Suzanne Karp
My husband and I own two loving shih tzu's, Patch & Pumpkin who are the loves of our lives...next to each other of course! We love New London and the Southeastern shoreline of Connecticut where we have numerous properties that we own and rent out. We thoroughly enjoy sharing are little part of the world with new and old friends. www.vacationsbydesignct.com
Suzanne Karp purchased this House in 2009
Why Suzanne Karp chose New London
We purchased this beautiful home and have had loads of fun renovating and decorating it. We enjoy vacationing ourselves here when, as rare as it is, we don't have visitors. The walk to the beach anytime of the year is always relaxing and reminds us why we moved here in the first place.
What makes this House unique
The proximity to Ocean Beach Park with all the family friendly events they produce here makes it the perfect vacation home. And, of course, for 'adult play', the proximity to the two largest casinos in the world can't be beat!

New London is a very cute town. The property was well maintained and very well stocked. Suzanne was very helpful and friendly.
Well stocked and plenty of room
We stayed in the winter, so it was off season for the local area. The house was extremely well-stocked kitchen wise with tableware and utensils, as well as plenty of sheets, blankets, and pillows. The owener was accessible and we had no issues.
Some of the equipment had wear and tear, which is to be expected. Overall there was plenty of room for the 8 of us. The master suite is gigantic.
Everything we needed
Even with an unusually cold winter, the house was plenty big and comfortable for our stay. We had everything needed (besides the food) for Thanksgiving dinner, there was plenty to do around the house (video/board games and cable on some new flat screen TVs) lots of linens and beds were decent. Nice backyard deck. Ms Karp was easy to contact. There is an amtrack train station not far from the house, but we chose to drive to new haven and catch the metro north rail on Thanksgiving morning because it was cheaper and we could leave earlier to get to NYC and get good seats for Macys Parade. There are eateries and some shops in New London, but Walmart and Target and the mall and anything else you can need is near by in Waterford. The train can take you to Boston also, but since our group was so big and it was such an easy 90 mile drive, we just drove there. It was great. I'm sure during the summer this would be a great rental too being so close to the beach and water activities at Ocean Park. Thank you!
We had a wonderful family reunion at this VRBO home which was perfect for all 12 of us: from games for the children to a comfortable home atmosphere for my 91 year old dad and his wife. We enjoyed Ocean Beach which appealed to all of us and explored the surrounding area. We had everything we needed to make meals at home and relax together. It was great!
