Family-friendly vacation home in New London with water park
Welcome to our charming, art-filled four-bedroom home in Lower New London close to the beach. This 1930 Dutch Colonial is uniquely situated within walking distance of three bodies of water: we are 200 yards from Alewife Cove, which flows out to the sea and can be explored with a kayak; two and a half blocks from the Thames River, where you can stroll along the shore and to the lighthouse dated 1761 (the first built on Long Island Sound); and four blocks from the immensely popular Ocean Beach Park, with its marvelous white-sand beach, boardwalk, waterslide, Olympic-size swimming pool, amusement park rides, diner/gift shop, miniature golf, nightly concerts, and arcade. Or walk to the neighborhood grocery store or colorful local hangout, the Egg Yolk Café.

This vintage home is loaded with original molding and hardwood floors throughout. The first floor has a living room, dining room, kitchen, half bath, and sunroom/office for those who may still need to work while away. There is also a recently tuned piano and stereo. Upstairs is a full bath and four bedrooms (one queen, one full, and two twins). Although it does not have central air conditioning, it has AC units in three of the bedrooms and wonderful ocean breezes. The house sleeps six and is fully equipped with linens, towels, pots and pans, utensils, and dishes as well as a coffee maker, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, high chair, and gas range. There is a WiFi-enabled Smart TV, as well as numerous novels and children’s books, board games, beach towels/chairs/toys, and a cooler. There is a washer/dryer and iron/ironing board in the basement. The back garden is set up with wicker furniture and a Weber barbecue. Note: We do not have a pool on the property; there is a public pool down at Ocean Beach Park.

A parking pass for Ocean Beach Park is included with the rental.

Note: After each guest's visit, our home is thoroughly restocked, cleaned, and sanitized by a professional cleaning service.

Welcome to the Dutch House!

Downtown New London is a short five-minute drive away, where you can dine in an eclectic variety of restaurants, or visit art galleries, live music, theater, and performing arts productions.
