The Showell house is a four bedroom, two bathroom home that sits along the edge of the resort and offers not only at-home experience but hotel style amenities that include a pool overlooking the ocean, two restaurants, and a private Connecticut beach for hotel guests only. The stunning spa is the perfect place to spend a snowy day and the summer nights grilling oyster on the back porch cant be beat. The home offers easy main road access, and is set back from the resort offering a more private experience. There is private parking for one car and unlimited parking in the resort parking lot, not far away. The large open concept chef's kitchen and formal dining room make cooking for a large group an absolute joy. Just steps from your villa are The Shops at Water’s Edge.

5/5 Excellent

nice early summer stay
thumbs up

5/5 Excellent

Great Family Getaway
We had a great time. Though you really have to like the people you are traveling with because the configuration is a bit quirky. There are only has 2 bathrooms, one being in the Master Bedroom. You will need to share.

5/5 Excellent

So many things within a short drive!

5/5 Excellent

Clean and comfortable
Spacious for family - 4 adults and twin 6 year olds. I would recommend and will book for next year.

5/5 Excellent

The entire family enjoyed their stay
Overall we had a fantastic week. However, there were 2 issues. The upstairs shower and sink water was way too hot. We couldn’t shower in that bathroom but the kids could take a bath. The last issue was the spiders and stink bugs. The living room and 2 of the bedrooms had quite a few issues, especially with spiders. Even though I really hate spiders, I would definitely consider staying there again.
