About Christina Kovacs
We are a couple that has their primary home in Fort Lauderdale, FL but we both grew up in New England. I am a real estate broker and Attila is the owner of a home a/v company in Miami. We have a passion for renovating and designing properties. This is our second vacation home (the other is in Jensen Beach, FL) and we have truly enjoyed interacting with each guests that rents from us. We have a traveled to 36 countries and we always prefer to renting property from individual owners vs. hotel/resorts. Each home gives us a unique perspective on the city we are traveling to allowing us to embrace the culture in a way that we never could staying at a corporate hotel. We hope you feel the same when you rent our vacation home.

Why Christina Kovacs chose Central Manchester
Where do we start? The Clifford Cheney mansion is such a unique property. We are intrigued by the history of the Manchester and the role the Cheney family played a huge role in developing the city to what it is today. This mansion in particular peaked our interest because it was designed by renowned architect, Charles Platt. You will notice some of Platt's signature designs throughout the house from the herringbone designed wood floors, mahogany walls, tall ceilings and how each main living space is positioned perfectly to overlook the South lawn (Great Lawn).

Great Gathering Place
House is as advertised it is a nice vintage mansion, great for a larger gathering / family get together. The grounds are very nice and the outdoor sitting area relaxing. The owner Christina was very responsive and great to work with. Additionally the location is great and close to shops and restaurants, thanks Christina.
Live like royalty for a stay
Charming property with plenty of space. The yard was awesome for the kids. The property manager gave great communication and was easy to work with.
We rented the Cheney Mansion for a long weekend when in town visiting family. Having grown up in Manchester, the Cheney Mansions are well known, and it was really fun to be able to explore the home. My kids had a blast exploring the house and running free on the great lawn. Everything about our stay was easy and seamless.
We stayed at the beautiful Cheney Mansion for my daughter’s UConn Graduation. The house was large enough for our whole family, and the huge backyard was perfect for an outdoor party! The house was super clean and really well stocked. We would highly recommend this house for any family gathering or big party!!
We hosted our very small wedding at the house. Christina was exceptional to work with and we truly enjoyed our stay!
This was a great place for out of town family to stay for our daughter's wedding.
The house is in a great location. The setting is quiet and feels secluded but is close to restaurants, shopping and major roads. The house has a good mix of old and modern. The furnishings have an antique feel but are in good condition. The beds were in excellent condition.
The kitchen seemed to have sufficient supplies. Although we only used it to make light breakfast, coffee and snacks. We chose not to cook or use the gas stove. The restaurant recommendations were very helpful.
For an older house the bathrooms were sufficient. And overall the heat, electricity, plumbing all worked fine.
The owner was responsive and communicated well. She worked with us for a couple special requests we made beforehand. And she worked to resolve a minor issue during our stay.
We are so glad our out-of-town family could stay in one large home instead of hotel rooms. It was perfect wedding accommodations.
Thank you for your review, it was a pleasure hosting you and I’m happy that we could accommodate your special requests before your arrival and use only specific cleaning supplies and upgrade the cable service during your stay so you would be able to watch ESPN. We try our best to accommodate our guests so they have a comfortable and enjoyable experience at the Clifford Cheney Mansion.
