    About this property

    Adorable Large Beach Cottage. End of Season Discount!!!!!

    Beach cottage in Westbrook
    PLEASE NOTE: This property has proven to be VERY popular. If your preferred dates aren't available, WE HAVE ANOTHER HOUSE ACROSS THE STREET! Ideal location, with ocean views. It is listing #572433. ------ Professionally maintained classic beach cottage with ocean views from most rooms in the house. Situated in a private beach community along the oh-so desirable coast of Long Island Sound. The perfect combination of old charm and updated decor. Close to major cities and several airports and yet you feel like you're away from it all! Perfect for couples, families or small groups. Weekly rates include ALL linens, so if you're comparing properties, please consider that most beach rentals do no provide bed linens and towels. We do! 4 bedrooms including 2 'masters' with comfortable beds and water views. 2 additional bedrooms with 2 twin beds in each, one of the 'twin' rooms also has a water view. (Please note: The fourth bedroom is a wonderfully fun room, we call the Hideaway. It has a bit of a funky step leading into it and is perfect for agile adults and older kids, but probably not ideal for 'little ones'. The other 3 bedrooms are ideal for any age). We realize many travelers don't want the hassle of bringing their own bed linens, bath & beach towels, so we provide quality linens for you! Your beds will be made and towels will be left for you in each room. A service many rentals do not offer. The screened-in porch, wraps around 2 sides of the house, and offers additional living space, gorgeous water, sunrise and sunset views and is perfect for outdoor dining and relaxing. There is also a second outdoor eating area with plenty of chairs and an umbrella for sunny days. The private beach is only 30 steps away and is shared by only a few families and is literally just steps away from your cottage. You can hear the sound of the ocean from every room in the house!
    Rooms open to balconies or patios. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations.

      Beautiful location

      The location if the cottage was awesome being so close to the beach was a joy and the views were spectacular especially the full moon on the water. The condition of the cottage was good but you could tell it was the end of the season and had been lived in. The dog run was perfect. All in all loved it and hope to be back next year.

      5/5 Excellent


        I vacationed at the cottage across the street 40 years ago as a kid with my family. That cottage is now permanently occupied, so I was THRILLED beyond belief when I found this rental just across the street. The nice thing about this rental is that it is one house length away from the beach. Literally is a five second walk to the sand. So very convenient to walk back to the cottage to eat, bathroom, whatever. The cottage has not been updated all these years, which is exactly what I was hoping for. I was in tears as I walked in to the same old familiar smell of the cottage I remembered back in the day. The colors on the walls are similar, and the old rustic feel. There are four bedrooms upstairs. Two of the rooms had two twin beds, and two of the rooms had one bed (size just a tad smaller than a Queen). Rooms were nice sizes! Loved the towels provided for the beach & shower - the shower towels were super absorbant! Speaking of shower - I took mine every morning in the outdoor shower. LOVED THAT! Good water pressure, and showering to the sounds of nature - well, there's nothing like it. The kitchen is small, but adequate to cook in, pots, pans and plates were sufficient...there is a fullsized fridge/freezer. The diningroom and family room are large and a nice screened in wrap around porch to view the ocean is just perfect. The place was immaculately clean, no bugs, there was a flat screen TV and WiFi. The good humor truck comes at nice (Daisy was the original good humor lady from 40 years ago - she hugged me and remembered me from way back then!!!) The streets are quiet, perfect for the kids to ride bikes, and we went for nightly walks - no traffic at all. The place hadn't changed from when I was little. In fact many of my old friends from 40 years ago were still there - as if they've preserved it all these years - all I had to do was return. Perfect family vacation spot. One point - what used to be a sandy beach to the left of the white wall is now gone, and high tide is all water, low tide is black muck (instead of sand bars). To the right of the white wall is a sandy beach and kids were in the water playing and swimming, although it's a tad rocky. The old rock jetty is still there, as is the wooden jetty to crab off of. Because of this, the beach is pretty quiet - not the best one to walk on sandbars or swim in. To me this is a plus, because we had the beach to ourselves! I don't swim in the ocean anyways...

        4/5 Good

          Not for Older Folks

          I knew the bathroom was upstairs but proved more difficult than I thought it would be. Windows are really really old. Kitchen not really fully stocked. No hair dryer as stated in description but property manager apologized. Did not receive a notice from VRBO about how to get in. Again had to contact property manager. It is 30 steps to ocean but view is quite blocked by overgrowth from structure in front. Neighborhood is lovely and people super nice.

          5/5 Excellent

            Beach front in a great neighborhood

            Great location and proximity to the beach!! Lots of areas for eating, screened porch, backyard or dining room. Kitchen has everything you need- pots/pans, toaster, Keurig. Used the outdoor grill several times. Loved the provided linens for shower and beach. Outdoor shower is amazing!!! Great advantage if you are traveling with kids. Hideaway room can get a little hot but we had to be diligent about fans and blowing hot air out. The neighbors are friendly- everyone we met on a walk or on the beach was super nice. Great communication with property manager. You are also in close proximity to main road and local grocery stores. The famous Bills seafood and the waters edge are just a short drive. Overall- this is a fabulous rental. Had a great experience with my family and would definitely rent again!

              Rent this Cottage!

              Beautiful house. Right next to the ocean. Did not want to leave. The beds were super comfortable. So many restaurants and things to do right down the street. I would definitely recommend and stay again.
