Cottage was just as described & very clean. We had everything we needed. The location was close to town & beach, but got 4 stars for location as our great grandbaby visited for 2 afternoons, and the association beach was not a safe walk for a 2 yr old. The two town beaches were nice, and a 5 minute drive from the cottage, so we enjoyed time there.
Lovely place Beautiful beach
Clean comfortable and cozy. Enjoyed every minute. Owner was great would like to return.
Perfect location to enjoy Old Saybrook
We had a great stay and enjoyed Lynne's attention to the needs of her guests.
The house was Clean, and perfect for our needs. It's a short walk to the beach for great sunsets and calm clean beach area. It was a quiet community.
Great rental a short walk from Cornfield Point in Old Saybrook, would highly recommend.
Had a wonderful Memorial day weekend with family. We got very lucky with abundant sunshine from Saturday through Monday so we were at the beach for the majority of our time there. Plenty of room for all 5 of us - very nice enclosed porch for morning coffee, a ton of restaurants to choose from, all about 2 to 5 minutes away. Beach chairs are there - so don't bring your own. The grill was also a nice extra as we had dinner there on one night that weekend. Have to bring your own sheets and towels but there is a washer and dryer on premises. Would highly recommend and look forward to having the chance to go back in the future. Great rental! Highly recommend!
cute house - good location - some problems
At first glance the house appeared to be in good condition. However, as the week progressed the following problems developed.. When we made up the beds (we brought our own sheets) we noticed the coverlets were old and dingy. When our son did his bed he found a dead fly under the coverlet. The front bedroom had a large amount of tiny red ants. During a very hot and humid week the air conditioner shut down several times due to circuit overloads. We found the house broom clean upon arrival and left it vacuumed and broom clean upon leaving, yet the owner charged us the full security, not cleaning, deposit for trivial reasons
The renters were given rules and regulations for the house. I went into the bathroom and it was filthy! I took pictures as I do if the house is not left cleaned. I started to sweep hardwood floors and there were lots of crumbs and noticed that the carpet under dining room tabled was not vacuumed. At that point, I decided the entire house needed to be cleaned.
I spoke to the renter an they told me that had to be out by 10 am so they did not clean the bathroom!
In addition, I noticed an issue with the shower faucet. Between the cleaning and repairs, it cost me more than the deposit they left me. I take pride in keeping the house very clean. I know before they came to the house it was clean because I check the house each week.
I have an average of 10 - 12 weeks of repeat renters which proves how well the property is maintained. This group will not be asked back.
