This was our second stay at Hyatt house. Our grown children and their families, a total of nine, fit in to the house with no problem. We have felt very much at home in the house from the beginning. The beach is wonderful for everyone, front screened in porch is the best place to sit anytime of day( my husband actually slept out there a couple nights and loved it), outdoor shower the best, I don't think anyone took a shower inside, the beds are comfortable and room for all at the dining room table. The kitchen may be small but we manage just fine and has everything you'll need. Only thing we missed was some seating in the back yard for barbecues on the grill. Also be prepared for a long walk from the driveway to the house when unloading or loading your car. A wagon of some sort would be helpful if you can fit one in.

Don't forget to check out The Stand across from Lenny's. Good barbecue and an easy walk in the morning to have a cup of coffee and some yummy sweet bread or a great breakfast sandwich from the food truck. Not to mention the fresh veggies. We look forward to making this our annual family vacation spot. Thx Martin!

Historic house on the beach

  • 5 of 5

The house is charming and beautifully maintained. A gardener comes every other day to tend the landscaping. We especially enjoyed the airy kitchen, screened in front porch with direct beach view, the outdoor shower, and the attic bedroom. The second-level bedrooms are modestly sized. The house is in front of a small road, which you can cross to a lovely sand and pebble beach with a diving board and swimming dock, where we spent a lot of time. Martin and his property manager keep the house bright and clean, and you'll feel cared for the moment you step in the house. We stayed with three generations and a dog, and everyone enjoyed. Note for elders: the staircase has steep steps.

Fun times

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful wonderful vacation at the Hyatt House.

Perfect for a relaxing week and ideally located with family members from Boston, Manhattan and outside philly.

Golf, water sports, and a great beach for summer reading. Fully equipped kitchen and a screened front porch to enjoy the view while nibbling.

Highly recommend for all ages.

This was our fourth time in the area and while we always rented lovely homes and enjoyed our time, the Hyatt House was by far the best. The porch, the dining room area, the kitchen, eveything needed and more was there, even some spare sunglasses in a basket in the kitchen! The area is quiet, very close to New Haven, good food and wine not far. Oh and the beach area with diving board is unique and lots of fun. Great for kids. We highly recommend.

Now on our second summer holiday here, the whole family has fallen in love with Hyatt House. The porch view alone is worth the price of admission (and the most immediate stress reliever I know). The house is so well appointed with its fantastically stocked kitchen, loads of beach towels, comfy beds, pretty linens, and AC for those occasional muggy days. We spent countless happy hours on the beach across the street - swimming and diving at high tide, crab and shell hunting a low. Our boys (4 & 5) also loved playing games in the enclosed back yard with its pretty flower beds and visiting bunny. We had no sooner pulled out of the driveway than the boys wanted to know when we'd be coming back ... very soon we hope! Thank you!!
