Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Westbrook Center

House, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Located in sleepy Westbrook, Ct and across the street from Long Island Sound, this beach house is spacious with a full kitchen, dining, and living room. A back yard area for children to play and parents to barbeque is included. There is a outdoor shower with both cold and hot water to wash the sand off from the beach. The beach (100 yards away) is beautiful and private for only the immediate neighborhood.

Great sandbars and, at low tide, a walk to explore Salt Island is available. Many great restaurants and summer activities are nearby, including Mystic Aquarium, Mystic Seaport, The Essex Steam Train, a bird sanctuary, and the Westbrook and Clinton outlet malls. Little Stannard Beach borders The Water's Edge Resort and Spa's Beach.

Many of our renters come back year after year. Read their reviews. We only rent for a MINIMUM 3 NIGHTS DURING JUNE AND SEPTEMBER, ONLY FOR A MINIMUM OF A WEEK IN JULY AND AUGUST. If you rent for under 3 nights there will be a cleaning fee of $75. Any amount of nights over 2 the cleaning fee is included in the rent.

About Kiki and Robert Hagemeister

We are year round residents of Little Stannard Beach and have been for over 20 years. Our children grew up in this wonderful little neighborhood and we are happy to share it with others.

Why Kiki and Robert Hagemeister chose Westbrook

With of a view of the Long Island sound as a benefit, there is also a large back yard to enjoy as well with a fire pit included. It is a great place for children to run around and play while you are grilling, without having to worry about their safety near the water. The beach is only 100 yards away though.

What makes this house unique

The uniqueness of Little Stannard Beach is that there is only one dead end street with access to the beach. Most beaches have many neighborhoods with acccess. It is not unusual to have only one or two families on this beach in the summer.

Quiet, Cozy & Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

As we started down hill towards Little Stannard Beach I knew immediately we were in for something spectacular! My husband grew up along the Clinton CT shoreline in a 2 story house and this cottage reminded him of home. From the moment you pulled into the driveway, the cottage had a welcoming feel to it...calling you right inside to enjoy and relax. The outside yard area had the same feel with the beautiful flowers in the front filled with bee and butterfly activity. The backyard was green and lush and alive with bird and squirrel activity. The walk to the beach was short and very convenient. The scene from the beach forces you to leave your cares behind and enjoy a little slice of heaven. The cottage had everything we needed for our stay. The place was super clean, beds comfortable and well stocked kitchen. Kiki was a wonderful host...taking on the same qualities of the cottage...warm and welcoming. We also enjoyed meeting her dog Cosby! My only regret is that we didn't have enough time there. I left a little piece of my heart at this cottage...so I know for sure I'll return some day to this sweet cottage on Little Stannard Beach.

First annual gathering of the clan

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to get my CT adult kids and my RI adult kids and their children (my grandchildren) all in one spot for a few days of fun. It was PERFECT. The little ones got to play together, the weather was great, the beach was lots of fun and the house was so cozy, comfortable and CLEAN. We all felt like we were at home, only better.

Our hosts (right next door) were very attentive to details, including their email correspondence. We hope to return next summer.

A hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a wonderful few days at this charming house with all the amenities one can ask for! Beautiful backyard, steps away from an amazing beach, very kid friendly and the owners are very accommodating. Close to many wonderful restaurants and in a great friendly neighborhood. A slice of paradise...

Perfect girls-weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Had such a lovely time on our recent girls' trip. We spent 3 nights and 4 days. Had dinner at cuckoos nest, great Mexican + margaritas. Spent the day Saturday at Chamard Vineyards. Excellent wine and fromage platter. Private beach was excellent. Couldn't have asked for a better location!

Kiki and Robert have thought of everything a person could need while staying at their house on the shore! Our family was there for our granddaughter's High School graduation, and then we hosted the extended family for a party on Saturday. Our stay couldn't have been better! Even the weather cooperated; as Robert told us it would, the brief rainstorm passed by in time for us to enjoy lawn bowling and the firepit! Many, many thanks for helping to make a memorable weekend...and to Robert for being the best "porter" ever!!

Wonderful property with awesome sunset views too!

  • 5 of 5

We drove down from Maine for a mini vacation and birthday surprise for my mariner husband. The house was warm, comfortable, cozy and wonderfully decorated with many antiques! We took walks on the beach every morning and enjoyed the sunsets on chairs in the back yard every evening. The location was perfect, tucked away from the maddening crowds yet so close to everything we wanted to see! We toured Old Saybrook, Essex, Gillette Castle, Noank, Mystic, Niantic and, of course, Mystic Seaport, all were so very close to reach by car! Thank you Kiki for your gracious hospitality, we had a fantastic stay!
