About Property Manager
We absolutely love Branford. My husband grew up spending his summers in Branford with his parents. As adults, we would visit often, but always dreaded having to leave. We started our family later in life having 2 boys in our late 30s and early 40s. The boys love visiting "Mama" in Branford and swimming at her beach. So in 2016 we decided to start looking for a house along the shore. Within a few months of searching, we purchased a home on Limewood Beach (just a few hundred yards away from this one) and fell in love with the neighborhood. Five months later, we purchased this beach house with the intention of completely rebuilding it. We converted this house from a seasonal cottage to a year-round home. EVERYTHING in the home is new, from the floors to the ceilings. New kitchen, bathroom, HVAC, fireplace, siding, roof, porch, appliances, water main, on-demand hot water heater, smoke alarms, CO detectors, and outside shower. It is our dream to one day pass down these nearby homes to our two sons so that they can be close to each other while raising their children and grandchildren along the shore.
Property Manager purchased this House in 2017
Why Property Manager chose Pine Orchard
The CT shoreline is a beautiful place to enjoy all 4 seasons from. The ocean has a calming and relaxing effect all year round. This property is ideal because it has been completely remodeled with brand new everything. It's 250 feet from the beach and we have deeded beach rights. The people in this beach community are very laid back and friendly. It feels as if stress doesn't exist along the beach... The home is situated in a perfect location and you can do everything from fishing, canoeing and kayaking to just relaxing on the new porch and enjoying the water views. There are 5 local restaurants and bars a half-mile walk from the house, and you will see lots of people walking, jogging, skateboarding, and bicycling along the beach to and from these local restaurants.
What makes this House unique
Close proximity to everything. Located 5 minutes from the Branford train station, 10 minutes from the airport, and 15 minutes from the New Haven train station makes this destination a possibility for those who want to come from all over without a car. Uber and a comfortable pair of sandals is all you need to get around to all of the local attractions.

what a wonderful house rental. We had such a good time. both porches we used quite a bit, as well as the beach. Kitchen had everything we needed. Would love to stay there again.
We had a great time! The porch is great, we spent hours sitting out there visiting and mostly laughing. Just a few steps to the beach. Liz and Bob are great hosts. We would rent again.
Everything was perfect
I love this place and definitely will come back.
What a wonderful property. Although only there for 2 days, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the owners were incredibly hospitable. Thanks so much! Looking forward to staying with you again in the future!
Second stay here
This was our second time staying in Liz and Bob's house. They have been really accommodating the few times we've worked with them, it's so helpful when making traveling arrangements. Their home is comfortable and welcoming. It's got everything you need for a home away from home. This house fits a family of 5 (3 adult children) with room to spread out as well as room to hang out together. We rent this house to visit family who live nearby, but we usually can't wait to leave and get back to the "beach house". We hope to stay here again for our annual Easter visit.
Don't be fooled by the sq. ft of this great house. There were only of 2 of us staying, but if there were more people everyone would have fit comfortably without feeling "on top" of each other. Everything offered and available like it's your home away from home. Location to beach and town is perfect. Liz and Bob were always available if any questions arose and very gracious hosts. Loved the special touch of wine waiting when we arrived. Definitely would stay again.
