Stunning Spacious Beach House

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our two adult children and their spouses, spent ten wonderful days at Jim's charming property. The house has tremendous character and has been beautifully updated. We were greeted with a bottle of champagne upon our arrival which was delightful. We enjoyed cooking in the well equipped kitchen which has a full sized stove and refrigerator, plus wine cooler. We made full use of the Keurig coffeemaker. The dining area seats eight and is adjacent to the kitchen with views of the ocean. The living room is tastefully decorated and the TV room behind it was comfortable and inviting. The gorgeous master suite is enormous with a generous sitting area, numerous closets and stunning views of the ocean. The bright master bathroom has extraordinary storage, a claw foot tub and a step up area where the shower and toilet are located. All of the bedrooms are airy and nicely decorated. We were happy to be able to do laundry and make use of the iron. Having access to the garage made going to and from the house in the rain much easier.

The home is roughly ten minutes to downtown Madison and to Hammonasset Beach State Park. Jim was very accessible and helpful when we had a question initially. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would return in a heartbeat.

Wonderful, well-equipped home with fabulous ocean view.

  • 4 of 5

Our family very much enjoyed a great Christmas in the lovely small town of Madison. The home was very well-equipped and maintained, with plenty of space and room for seven or more. All essential supplies and necessities were provided. The ample fridge space was appreciated at Christmas. A quiet, friendly place with a home featuring an ocean-front location. We would certainly rent this home again.

Wonderful for the holidays!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with our adult children in this beautiful house. The kitchen was very well equipped. The house is very comfortable with two living areas and a gas fireplace - perfect for the holidays.

We had the best time at this house. It had everything we needed. Plenty of room for our large extended family.

The beach was perfect. My only recommendation is that you wear water shoes since it was a bit rocky.

The water was clean and perfect for swimming. The area is gorgeous. We did lots of walking, jogging and biking.

The owner, Jim was very easy to work with.

I hope we can return again next year!

Wonderful house and great location!

  • 5 of 5

It was so convenient with two young grandchildren to be able to go back and forth to the beach dependent on their napping. We loved the front porch and the backyard was fun for yard games. It was also a great area to walk!!

Clean, comfortable, spacious and has an incredible location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The proximity to the beach was perfect for the kids. Everyone had room to spread out and find some private space from time to time. It is conveniently located to the grocery store and town. The views of the water are wonderful. Just a few things you might want to check on....there is an ant problem. I hope the refrigerator was repaired for the next guests. Also, we feel a little bad as we did not realize that trash and recycling pickup alternates weeks. Unfortunately for the next guests there was quite a bit of trash and recycling left as we only had the one day (Tuesday) to get rid of the trash. My son mentioned that their room (the back bedroom with the queen bed) had stained towels and sheets with holes. I understand that you are not there to personally check on the linens so I thought I would mention it. In the grand scheme of things however, we all had a great time. We rented paddleboards two days and the kids pretty much lived in the water. An added bonus was that the water was very shallow at low tide and they could walk very far out. They loved that.
