Adorable large beach cottage

Family fun at the shore
PLEASE NOTE: This property has proven to be VERY popular. If your preferred dates aren't available, WE HAVE ANOTHER HOUSE ACROSS THE STREET! Ideal location, with ocean views. It is listing #572433.
------
Professionally maintained classic beach cottage with ocean views from most rooms in the house. Situated in a private beach community along the oh-so desirable coast of Long Island Sound. The perfect combination of old charm and updated decor. Close to major cities and several airports and yet you feel like you're away from it all! Perfect for couples, families or small groups.

Weekly rates include ALL linens, so if you're comparing properties, please consider that most beach rentals do no provide bed linens and towels. We do!

4 bedrooms including 2 'masters' with comfortable beds and water views. 2 additional bedrooms with 2 twin beds in each, one of the 'twin' rooms also has a water view. (Please note: The fourth bedroom is a wonderfully fun room, we call the Hideaway. It has a bit of a funky step leading into it and is perfect for agile adults and older kids, but probably not ideal for 'little ones'. The other 3 bedrooms are ideal for any age). We realize many travelers don't want the hassle of bringing their own bed linens, bath & beach towels, so we provide quality linens for you! Your beds will be made and towels will be left for you in each room. A service many rentals do not offer.

The screened-in porch, wraps around 2 sides of the house, and offers additional living space, gorgeous water, sunrise and sunset views and is perfect for outdoor dining and relaxing. There is also a second outdoor eating area with plenty of chairs and an umbrella for sunny days.

The private beach is only 30 steps away and is shared by only a few families and is literally just steps away from your cottage. You can hear the sound of the ocean from every room in the house!

We are taking extra precautions at this time due to Covid with our cleaning between guests. Our cleaning crew is using CDC guidelines during each cleaning. The measures we are using to protect our guests include using disinfectants registered by the environmental protection agency, all linens washed at the highest heat setting, emptying vacuum cleaner after every cleaning, lining each trash and disposing of cleaning supplies between each quest. We have self check in to assist in social distancing by having a key lockbox. Our top priority is to ensure our guests have a safe and amazing stay!

2/5 Poor

Expensive Shed cottage
We rented this cottage b/c we wanted a beautiful ocean front view and private beach where we could swim. As we drove up to the cottage our excitement turned to gloom. This is a very old, run down home with exposed wiring throughout and no upkeep. This home needs a major remodeling to get it up to date for what this landlord charges. Had we driven by prior to our stay, we would have cancelled right away. The view from the cottage: you will have a view of concrete pillers and a large for sale sign of a cottage whose structure was started but never finished. There are tall weeds growing throughout the property and blocking your view of the ocean. The private beach that we paid for, is full of rocks, seaweed and the water is dirty due to the boats that are parked there. This was very disappointing as we could not swim there. We had to walk up the street to another beach, lugging all our beach belongings and lugging it all back. This defeated the purpose of paying all this money to have our own private beach. The furniture is all outdated and broken. I slept in the blue room one night to snuggle with my youngest son and could barely move the next day. My entire back was hurting. I looked under the bed and saw that the underneath frame was broken. The small attic room was extremely hot and unsuitable to sleep in. This room could easily be improved by adding an air conditioner and blocking off the opening in the wall from the garage underneath it. The cushions on all the chairs are completely worn out, dirty and uncomfortable. There is a white table chair that is broken and nobody could sit on it. There would be no way that we could have had 8 people stay here and have somewhere to sit. There is only 1 bathroom and it’s up stairs. The stairs are steep and a tripping hazard due to their design. Not suitable for elderly/small kids. We would be embarrassed to have a family member or friend know that we stayed here. There are no walls just thin wood. There was water leaking from the outside chandelier from the last small rainfall. I can’t imagine staying here in a rainstorm. There is wall paper peeling off the walls in the kitchen and the refrigerator is making weird sounds like it’s ready to die soon. Our kids and we could not wait to leave. It smells like a very old run down house built in the 1920’s..We were so happy to be home and would never stay here ever again.

5/5 Excellent

Great location and view
House is steps from the beach and there is a great view. We sat on the screened porch every night and enjoyed the view of the sound. It is a beach cottage so there is no insulation and you can hear everything going on in the house. The stairs are steep and there is one bathroom but there is a great outdoor shower. I would highly recommend just know that you are renting a cottage with no dishwasher or cloths washer but the beach makes it all worth it.

4/5 Good

Location!
The beach and proximity to the house was excellent. The house itself could use some upgrades, a good deep cleaning and TLC. We appreciated the amenities of linens, towels and beach stuff. We did have wonderful week there!

5/5 Excellent

Great property
This place was amazing for our group of 8 plus an infant. Great access to the beach, but it is a typical beach house. Don't expect too much privacy because the walls are thin but we had a blast. So much seating between the inside and the screen porch. A little bit of peeling paint on floor so keep an eye on littles. Overall super pleased and would rent again.
