WALK TO BEACH! WALK TO TOWN! GARDEN EFFICIENCY SLEEPS 1-4 COMFORTABLY

Madison Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

This 3 room, 1 bath year-round garden efficiency apartment is located in the scenic New England town of Madison, Connecticut on Long Island Sound. This 500 square foot efficiency is part of a stately old summer house built in 1918. Master bedroom has own cable television and full Murphy bed. 2nd bedroom includes a full fold down couch. Large living room with cable TV, fold out full couch, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, toaster oven and small refrigerator. Bathroom with shower. Deck next to tidal marsh great for bird watching or relaxing with a book. Picnic table and chairs right outside door. During summer months, ask about use of above ground pool as part of your experience.

This garden apartment efficiency is centrally located, yet tucked away in a wooded enclave. It is within a 10 minute walk of local town beaches as well as the in-town independent theatre. A fine French Bistro can be found a block away, right behind the local Audubon Shop. Hammonasett State Park is only a mile up the road.

Madison is one of a series of small seashore towns where boating, beaches, swimming, and gorgeous water views keep visitors coming back year after year.

Day trips to Providence and Newport Rhode Island, Old Essex CT, Yale/New Haven and Mystic Seaport and Aquarium, as well as Lake Compounce (the oldest continuously operating amusement park in North America) are among the local venues for daytrips.

Madison is fortunate to have an independent theatre and one of America's finest independent book stores, RJ Julia. And of course there is a diverse selection of restaurants in Madison and surrounding towns. If you are bringing children, the town of Madison hosts a variety of summer camps (sailing, soccer, swimming etc.). Horseback riding camps for children and lessons for adults minutes away at fabulous Guilford Riding School. After a fun-filled day, visit Stone Temple Sanctuary for a relaxing massage. They are located just down the street from this conveniently located rental!

Great place. Great hosts.

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time in Madison and staying Criss and Nick's cottage. The place was everything we needed it to be, but most of all Criss and Nick were just the most wonderful hosts. Thanks!
Would highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Hannah, glad you enjoyed your stay! Though it is not a cottage per say, (it's a ground floor apartment attached to a larger house), it is small and cozy like a cottage but lighter and brighter at the same time! I hope your family traveled uneventfully home and that the three of you are enjoying the first part of the fall weather. Thank you again for your kind review, and please think of returning in the future to spend more time on the beach!

Wonderful Weekend

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I recently vacationed in Madison, CT-one of our major highlights was staying in this beautiful garden apartment. The entire rental process was a breeze with Christine being very accommodating and approachable. I was blown away by how well equipped the apartment was (beach chairs, beach towels, etc.), even with the simple essentials that I had forgotten (sandwich size bags, q-tips). Another major perk is its central location, being ideally close to fun events, beaches and amazing Madison venues and restaurants. Needless to say I highly recommend renting here and hope to return in the future. Thanks again!!

Cozy space-great to use as base for day trips

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with our adult children while attending various events in the area. The apartment was very clean and the owners were very helpful. Definitely recommend this property as you can walk to the beach or the town of Madison.

Very accomadating

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay and the owners were very accomadating! Providing fresh towels, daily clean dishes, beach access, towels, chairs, access to pool, and an overall Inn experience. Also walking distance to downtown with coffee shops, restaurants, and shops. The space was perfect for a small family or a few friends as it provided 2 bedrooms, kitchenette, spacious bathroom, flatscreen tv with dvds as well as a train table for the kids. The expresso machine was also a big hit!

Well-designed and well-equipped place

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I very much enjoyed our week in the 2-bedroom efficiency. The apartment was lighter, brighter, and more spacious than it appeared in the photos, and the owner has thought of everything to make her visitors comfortable there. The beach, the shops and restaurants of downtown Madison, and the good seafood at Lenny and Joe's are all quite close. We would definitely come back for an even longer stay next time.

This is a perfect rental for weekend retreats, get togethers, get aways, and weeklong/month vacations! 10 minute walk to Madison's independent theater, fine dining, Long Island Sound beaches, Madison village shopping, and the library.

This garden apartment efficiency is on the main street through the town of Madison, yet it is on a two acre wooded property that tucks it away into privacy. Bird watch from your deck that overlooks the tidal marsh.There is an above ground pool that is available to use on request. Lawn games are also at your disposal.

Relax with a book on your deck overlooking the tidal marsh, or stroll the beach or the sidewalks in town. There is something for everyone in your group to enjoy.
