Why Richard Greer chose Connecticut Shore

Lovely and pristine getaway, in a cherished family home for decades.

What makes this house unique

Our family fell in love with this beach front home because of its extraordinary views as well as the graceful floor plan, that is perfect for both entertaining a large group or cozy and alone. We have enjoyed many summers as well as holidays in this quiet and peaceful setting, relaxing to the sound of the waves breaking on the beach wall.

Wonderful Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house at the beginning of October for 5 days as we were attending a wedding in the area. There were 9 adults and 3 children, and it was plenty of space for everybody. We enjoyed our stay very much. The house is lovely and very clean. It did not feel like a rental, it felt like home, cozy, warm and beautiful. The kitchen is equipped with everything one might need, and more. Spectacular views from most of the rooms, especially from the living room and sun room. Everything was very comfortable. There was a whole closet full of clean towels of very good quality. The water pressure in the shower was just right. Patio furniture was nice, clean and enough for all of us. There were games, books and even toys for the kids, that we all enjoyed. Richard is a wonderful host, he walked us through the rental details before we booked, I thought it was very thoughtful of him. He was available for our questions, it was nice to know that we can contact him if we need. We did not have any issues during our stay. I was surprised to find out that the water in the ocean was still very warm, we were swimming a lot, and took long walks along the beach.

I would definitely recommend the house. We are planning to come back next year. The house is meant to be enjoyed, so we did.

Beautifully kept and appointed

  • 5 of 5

The home was warm and welcoming, not the run of the mill beach home. Clean and well appointed. Kitchen has any appliance you could think of. Plenty of dining space for entertaining friends and family. Bathrooms with fresh towels and soaps. Very clean. The living room and sun porch as I call it have wonderful ocean views and actually sitting on the couch and looking out at the water one feels they are on a cruise ship. The master bedroom and bath were wonderful as well as all the sleeping space upstairs. A perfect time of year for a relaxing early fall getaway. I would recommend this property to friends and family.

Great Time In Old Saybrook

  • 4 of 5

Had a fantastic time. House completely equipped. Found the property to be just what I thought it to be, it was clean and ready for us well before check in time. Dealing with Richard was a pleasure, he called to go over everything and to make sure his property was what I wanted before I booked, which I thought was a nice thing to do. Also he gave me his cell # in case I had any issues (which I didn't). It was a good feeling to know that he was available. Everyone in my family enjoyed our week.

South Woodstock


  • 5 of 5

I stayed here the last week of July. There were 7 adults and 5 children(range in age from 7 to 1). There was plenty of room for all. The lawn on the front of the house was a great place for them to play while meals were being prepared. The beach was close and private although rocky. We did travel down the road to Harvey Beach which is a nice beach to go to for a change.

We had a great time. Thanks again for opening your home to us!

Fabulous Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting this home and it was perfect. We had 12 people and there was plenty of room. Then, we had family who visited and there was still plenty of room for people to move around and not be right on top of each other. We loved playing games in the yard. The beach is clean and has a great jetty for fishing. We had an absolute great week.

Richard was very helpful and allowed us to look at the cottage because we were not familiar with it.

Thank you again for sharing your home with us.

Beautiful Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This beachfront classic was everything we hoped it would be. We brought our entire family including the grandchildren. It was spacious and clean with waterfront views from many rooms. The beach is private and perfect for paddleboarding and small children.

Richard was always available if we had any questions and very welcoming. We are grateful he shared this wonderful home with us.

We plan on returning for future summer vacations!
