This home is clean, cozy and charming. The wood floors were a bonus. The access to the beach is amazing. It was truly a private beach experience. The views of the beach from the house is exceptional. It was a pleasure to hear the sounds of the ocean each night and morning from my bedroom. The neighborhood is quiet and serene. My family and I enjoyed our stay. It was a very relaxing vacation.

My family and I had a wonderful time at this beach house! The ocean was right out the back door and the views were stunning. It was the perfect get away for us and we would be happy to go back.

This was the perfect place for a family getaway for July 4th. The setting was ideal for my husband, my two boys and me, and my sister, brother-in-law and nephew. Upon entering, the house was spacious and welcoming. Everything was well-maintained and clean. I found it charming and beachy without being over the top. And keep in mind that the online photos don't do this house justice. It's even better in person. Everything that we needed was provided for us--linens, towels, pots, pans, utensils, and even some toiletries. During our stay, Denise was available via text and phone, though I never had the need to contact her by phone. She was extremely helpful with my laundry list of questions! The only flaw with the house (which is not the fault of the owner) is that it's not baby proof. I have an 11-month-old who had just started crawling the week prior to our visit, and he was trying to get into everything! Most trips to the beach with small kids are stressful because there is so much planning that goes into them. So for me, the best part of renting this house was the ability to walk out the back door and step directly onto the beach. I was able to relax more and have a more laid back vacation.

This place was perfect for a family trip with kids. Could not have asked for a better location with a private beach right off the deck!

Denise was extremely friendly and responsive throughout the entire process of renting her beautiful beach home! Any questions I had were answered within hours, if not minutes. Eight of us rented this house for a girls' weekend and it was perfect for what we were looking for. The back door opens up to a beautiful deck with the beach only a few steps away. There is a great family-style table that looks out onto the water that we enjoyed spending time at when we weren't outside enjoying the deck and ocean. The pictures don't do this house justice! It is in a great location in Old Lyme with an active and family-friendly neighborhood. The restaurants around the area are also fantastic. Overall, we had a great time and I would definitely recommend Denise's house to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend away in beautiful Old Lyme.

This beach house is perfect. The decor, the amenities, the beach front..everything was better than expected. We had 6 women for a mom's weekend away and it was absolutely everything we expected and more. The bedrooms are ample and beds are comfortable and the sandy beach was just awesome. We will definitely be back! Could not have been happier!
