About Karen Calvanese

We purchased this 'cottage' and turned it into a home where our four children enjoyed the last 24 summers. Wonderful memories are carried with me at all times. We now mostly live in Old Lyme, CT. We are actually from Plantsville, CT, about 50 minutes from here. We would live our summers here in Westbrook and then back to Plantsville for the school year. Now, being empty nesters, we would love to see our Westbrook home enjoyed by others who long to be near the ocean.

Karen Calvanese purchased this house in 1989

Why Karen Calvanese chose Westbrook Center

It's directly on the beach in a quiet family friendly neighborhood. It's easily accessible from I-95 and Rt 9 and offers many attractions nearby.

What makes this house unique

After searching for several years, we knew we had finally found the right summer home. The house at the time needed a lot of work, but the road was quiet which was a major concern for us having young children and the beach wasn't rocky which was a big concern as well. We knew we could always turn the house into a home we could love, but the road and the beach were unchangeable. We hated to leave come the school year. Now that our children are grown we have used this Westbrook home in the off season as well. It is beautiful in the winter and even quieter.

Absolutely beautiful location!

  • 4 of 5

Rented this house to attend a family wedding. First impression is the pictures don't do this place justice. Right on the ocean, beautiful inside and out. Neighbors are close by but everyone was VERY friendly. Weather was a bit rainy but that didn't stop us from waking up early to search for sea glass and shells during low tide. We will be back!

Gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful time with the family. Home has everything you need, unbelievable. The picture here does not do any justice. Now there are beautiful flower boxes under windows. And beautiful snowball bushes(can't remember the correct name). 🙂�🙂�🙂�

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! Very happy to know you enjoyed your stay. The bushes are hydrangeas but my grandmother always called them snowballs too!

Great ladies weekend

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room, great location on the beach. There's a lovely patio facing the water to have lunch or dinner. This was our second year here and "the girls" are already talking about next year.

Best spot on the Shoreline

  • 5 of 5

This is now our 3rd year renting this beach house and we can not say enough good things about it! The location can not be beat, the rooms are all spacious, gorgeous views, amenities are spot on starting with the outdoor furniture to the bar to the kitchen materials.

The owners are fantastic and we highly recommend this house to anyone with or without a family looking to relax on the beach!
