About Judy

A California native, with a love of coastal scenery, I have lived in the charming New England town of Guilford, CT for more than 15 years. It's a very special place!

Judy purchased this house in 2000

Why Judy chose Guilford

This property is amazing! The water views could not be more stunning. It's truly a place to relax and enjoy nature ... waves lapping, gorgeous sunsets, balmy sea breezes, wonderful beaches, boating, walking and hiking opportunities, locally grown food. You can 'get away from it all' here but you still have all the perks and conveniences you're used to. Convenient to shopping. You can even walk into town.

What makes this house unique

Sandy beach and amazing views of sparkling Long Island Sound from every room. High end appliances and antiques. Close to New York City, Boston, Mohegan Sun, outlet shopping.

Wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday!

  • 5 of 5
This home was perfect for our destination family gathering for Thanksgiving. The surrounding area is quiet and quite beautiful, even on cold, rainy November days. The home itself was even larger than the pictures indicated and easily accommodated our party of seven adults and one child. The inside furnishings are warm, welcoming and even a bit eclectic but overall you quickly felt quite at home. The very well appointed professional kitchen and high-end bathroom fixtures were added bonuses. We highly recommend this property to families looking to spend some quality time together........we hope to have the opportunity to stay here again in the future.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our 3 grandchildren, our daughter and her husband joined us for a great week at this very beautiful home in Guilford.The wraparound deck gave us an unobstructed view of the Sound with an active hawk's nest that was fun to watch; the gardens next door had spectacular flowers and bird feeders that attracted a wonderful variety of birdlife. It was hard to leave what felt like our own private nature park. The grandchildren (11 months, 2-1/2 and 12) loved being so close to the beach and a great playground, and the location of the house couldn't have been better. We were in close proximity to many great restaurants. We actually ate in many nights - the kitchen was so well equipped and the view from the dining room table couldn't be beat. We used the 2 available kayaks, and the kids enjoyed the ping pong table and the other games in the basement. Comfortable beds, clean and well appointed bathrooms and comfortably furnished family gathering areas made us feel very much at home. We had a great vacation and hope to return. The property owner was very responsive and lovely to deal with. You can't go wrong with this home! Our only criticism was that the amount of lighting in the living room area was a little too dim for reading in the evening. Everything else was fabulous.

An August to remember

  • 5 of 5
My wife, two young sons and I had the great pleasure to rent this home in August of 2011. We arrived in the morning, sight unseen, and were immediately put at ease. It was immediately apparent that we were not to stay in a “rental property” rather a beautiful home with grand views of the long island sound. The pictures cannot come close to capturing the beauty and serenity of the spot. My wife and I spent many of our days across the street at a playground and beach, and our evenings enjoying the wraparound porch, enjoying the sunsets while our children played on the grass within view. The home is thoughtfully decorated with large windows, many views and is flooded with natural light. The master bedroom is enormous (close to the size of our NY apartment), the master bathroom hosts a Jacuzzi tub and a great shower. For those renters with children, there are dozens of toys and an entire library to enjoy. The owner was available for questions and a manager down the street checked in frequently. I was able to make use of the train station located just minutes from the house making my weekend trips to and from NYC a breeze. I could not ask for a better experience both in terms of the character of the home as well as its proud owner.

Wonderful family friendly home

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure of spending the fourth of july week at this comfortable and luxurious home. The house was very well equipped. We enjoyed watching multiple fireworks displays from the upstairs bedrooms. Breakfast on the deck overlooking the water was wonderful. We enjoyed the fireflies dancing in the yard during the evening. A very short walk out the side yard and across the road brought us to the city beach park with playground, volleyball court, and beach. We had the chance to talk the kayaks out onto the water. A short walk will bring you to several resturants at the marina. Our three kids, 3, 7, and 9, had a great time with the basketball hoop, ping pong table, TV w/ cable, and toys. Yes we're fortunate that there were lots of toys to keep our 3 year old boy busy. We had a great time and highly recommend this wonderful home.
