I'm originally from England but feel very much at home in New England. My husband is Italian and feels equally at home here, especially as there is good pizza to be found locally. We have one son, Seth, who was born in the U.S.

Philippa Mannino purchased this house in 1999

More than a vacation rental, this is our treasured refuge. We bought this house when we were about to be transferred to South America - we couldn't bear the thought of not coming back to Madison. The town has so much to offer: small enough for people to say hello when you pass them on the street, large enough to offer everything you need in the way of shopping and entertainment. The easy train ride to New York or Boston was also a big plus for us.

We enjoy having breakfast on the veranda, sunset strolls to the wharf, listening to music on the lawn of the Madison Beach Hotel. We can bike into town and pick up bagels and the newspaper. If we feel energetic, we can cycle all the way down the beach road and come back through town. On summer evenings, we arrange to meet friends at the Surf Club for a picnic dinner - although we also love eating on our screened porch. In winter, we enjoy a cosy evening at Madison Art Cinema and a glass of wine in town, or we light the fire and have friends over.

Our lovely beach house

We are a Parisian family of 5 with 3 kids. We have been coming all the way from France and renting this lovely beach house every summer since 2009. It was love at first sight. Our children do not want to go anywhere else on our summer vacation. This is home in the U.S. for all of us. We are also very fond of the owners who have become really good friends and of the Madison community who has been so charming to us and to our kids year after year. There are lots of activities -our kids love sports- around and lots of sightseeing to do. A great pizza place, a lovely lobster restaurant, some incredible ice-cream places, a wonderful bookstore... Watching the sunset on the beach while the kids are playing soccer is a pure moment of happiness. Our kids who currently live downtown the City of Light want us to rent the lovely beach house in the winter so they can go to school in Madison. But please don't tell anyone, this is our secret lovely beach house :)

My wife and I are from North Carolina. We have stayed in the Mannino cottage for the past two summers with our friends from Maryland. Mrs. Mannino goes out of her way to make sure we are comfortable and secure. The cottage (it needs a name) is only fifty steps from the beach and the Madison Beach Hotel which makes it appealing to us because three in our party used to work at the Hotel in the 1960s. The four of us plus our son who comes up to visit from New York look forward to spending more time in one of our favorite places.

Owner's Response: It is always gratifying to see guests return. We enjoy hearing your stories about the old Madison Beach Hotel and find it very romantic that you enjoy returning to rekindle those memories. We do need to give our house a name, you are right! Suggestions welcome.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the beach house! The house was just perfect, bigger than it appears online, clean, comfortable and had everything we needed.
Everyone who came to visit me there all said they 'wanted to live there'.
Thank you Philippa for a great week and sharing such a great place with my family and I!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review. I'm glad the house proved to be a good base for your get-together. You had great weather and were able to enjoy the turn of season. So nice to find the house left in such great condition and laundry done! Many thanks.

We love this house!

This summer my family rented (for the third time) this lovely house in Madison, Connecticut. It's a great house summer or winter (we rented it one winter) and its location is perfect. The beach (where we swim) is small and uncrowded and only yards away and curves around to a jetty where locals love to fish. The Madison Beach Hotel is close, but there is no noise and traffic isn't a bother. And the Hotel has a very good restaurant and bar.
There are lots of things to do in the town of Madison and nearby towns. The town has a movie theatre, restaurants, a fabulous bookstore, and lots of nice shops. It's near beaches and Hammonasset State Park.
The pictures on this site accuratlely reflect the house. Comfortable rooms, lots of charm, a delightful screened in porch off the first floor for dinners outside or to sit and read. Nice wrap around porch too.
The kitchen is well set up. There's a sweet porch off the master bedroom for gazing at the ocean with your morning coffe. The house is close to town and sits on the road everyone uses for jogging and bike riding right along the shoreline.
The house was clean and well maintained. The owners have been gracious and helpful and most accommodating. Good two car garage. Working grill. Washer and dryer. Television in the living room where there are two very comfortable couches. Very nice dining room.
I highly recommend this house. Friends have stayed with us and they've loved it too. I only wish we could have stayed longer. A peaceful, lovely place in a great location.

Owner's Response: Nice to see you again! Thank you for your lovely review. Sorry the weather wasn't the best but it didn't stop your husband from enjoying some fishing. Come back for a winter weekend if you want to get out of the city.

We really enjoyed our rental of this property. The cottage is charming, clean, and perfectly kept. The owner is professional and thoughtful. The location is great--walking distance from beautiful beaches (including a beach playground) and town. We highly recommend this property!

Madison exudes New England charm. In summer, the uncrowded beaches, parks and variety of outdoor activities make this a popular family destination. The nearby hotel has free summer concerts and is particularly convenient for last-minute dining, as is the new Christy's of Madison, on the opposite corner. The town is lively throughout the year with the independently-owned bookstore, R.J. Julia hosting many author events and the in-town movie theatre offering more than a diet of the usual blockbusters.
