Charming beach house full of character
Spent a wonderful weekend with my family at this house. This is not a characterless rental property but a lovely and personal home. What a charming place. Could have spent the whole time just poring through the books and historic postcards and wonderful art on the walls. The living room is airy and spacious and perfect for a family to hang out in. Then there’s the gorgeous wrap around porch, with comfortable wicker furniture and phenomenal views. It's set high up from the street, so you survey the whole neighborhood but still have privacy. Water views from everywhere. What a treat to wake up in the morning in the bright bedroom, feel the sun shining in and gaze out at Long Island sound. The house was immaculate. Could eat off the floor. Not a fingerprint in the kitchen. Terrific having the private beach literally across the street. It was too cold to swim during our visit, but the seawall makes an ideal place for an after dinner stroll. Went to sleep at night with the sound of waves outside the windows. Beautiful old residential neighborhood and the house is set on a relatively quiet street. What a relaxing stay. Will definitely book again next season.
