About Justin Gouveia

My name is Justin gouveia and I manage this property for my parents. I work and live in a nearby town in connecticut and have spent many summers at this old Lyme property.

Justin Gouveia purchased this condo in 1986

Why Justin Gouveia chose Old Lyme

As a child, I remember spending all day and night enjoying the sand and water as my parents watched comfortably from the deck. The beach is fi,led with children if all ages and it was always fun to play volleyball at the net nearby and have 20 other children join to make a huge neighborhood game. We would kick the soccer ball around the beach or throw the football, but my favorite were the large whiffle ball games we used to have. The best part of old Lyme as a child was after dinner when we used to walk to nearby Hartford avenue and my parents would buy me ice cream and take me to ride the carousel. I would always hustle a couple of dollars and spend an hour or so playing skeeball at the arcade.

As an adult, this place is even better. there is nothing better than catching up with your friends, enjoying the beautiful day, grilling endless amounts of food, and sipping on your favorite cocktail. I especially like when the sun goes down and the beach empties. You get to enjoy the beach peacefully and play card games or if you are feeling a little more adventurous that evening, walk over to Lenny on the beach or the pavilion , two local bars about 150 yards away, which are also Located on the beach. The pavilion is especially great as they are open during the day as well and always have a live band to enjoy.

What makes this condo unique

Amazing panoramic view of long island sound. Great place for people who like to take long walks along the beach. Volleyball court located directly adjacent to property and walking distance to all amenities.

Thank you so much for another great week. We really appreciate the fact that the owners constantly improve and upgrade the unit. Love the kitchen, it is so pretty and functional! New furniture, flooring and rugs and I feel like it is newly painted every year. We love our time here right on the ocean and and are looking forward to next year.

Amazing beach front stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a wonderful weekend at this beautiful beach front condo. It is a perfect getaway location with a spectacular view. The owners were very accommodating, answered any questions we had and left the place in impeccable conditions. Aside from waking up to the ocean and being steps away from the sand, the condo is a short walk away from restaurants and shops. Enjoy relaxing on the patio or on the beach, going for a walk, visiting the ice cream shops, or going out for dinner and drinks. It is the perfect spot for families as well as young couples or groups of friends. We will definitely be going back and we can't wait!
