About Anthony Malaro
I grew up in Branford, CT and met my wife, who is from CA, here as well. We both love Branford and it's quaint New England charm. Combined with the seaside beauty this town has to offer we jumped at the chance to buy this property. It was the 'ugly' house on the street when we acquired it in 2000. A very dated and structurally different ranch, my wife, who should have become an architect came up with a great design. By 2003 we transformed this ugly duckling into one of the most talked about homes on the street. Work has taken us to CA but we look forward to our trips back to CT to visit with family and friend and to stay in our lovely home on the east coast. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
Anthony Malaro purchased this House in 2000
Why Anthony Malaro chose Pine Orchard
Branford is a wonderful New England town that has managed to attract some great restaurants, quality healthcare facilities and is convenient to almost everything while maintaining a quaint feel. Being right on the water is wonderful experience and each community within Branford has a feel of its own to appeal to everyone.

perfect for our staff time together
The Pine Orchard house is great - roomy and spacious. The kitchen, main areas and upstairs spaces are very nicely updated. We enjoyed using the different gathering spaces for meetings or privacy/phone calls.
As coworkers staying in the same house, it was especially helpful to have several private bedrooms and bathrooms.
We enjoyed the quaint Branford area and the food at Lenny's was great. Easy access to local restaurants and shopping and the I-95, without the noise.
Thanks very much; we had a great stay!
Our family gathered at Pine Orchard for our niece’s wedding. The house was perfect. The kitchen was well appointed for making a big breakfast and the various seating areas were conducive to catching up with family members. Nice walk to the beach. Our only suggestion would be a more visible house number. Owner very helpful and responsive with internet connection issue.
Perfect Home Base for a Group of Friends!
The Pine Orchard House was amazing! We stayed at this house on our wedding weekend with our bridal party, and cannot imagine a better place to have stayed! There were plenty of bedrooms for all of us, with a large common space that was perfect for games at night and getting ready the day of our wedding. The kitchen was well equipped, with a large dining table, and the driveway easily accomodated all of our cars. Anthony was very responsive before and during our trip. I would highly recommend staying at this property with a large family or group of friends!
Lovely home and great location.
The home was very clean and was furnished with everything we needed. (Except an iron - thankfully we brought our own.) The owners provided clear directions and tips for local attractions. We rented the house for a family wedding and would recommend it to others who are seeking a home in the Branford/ New Haven area!
A lovely LARGE home with plenty of room for our clan gathering!
My husband and I, our 3 children and their 3 kids, and several friends enjoyed the house this holiday weekend. We were pleased to find it as described and very accommodating for our large group. The diningroom and livingroom were especially well laid out to provide spaces for small groups and large to connect and eat, play games and hang out. Bravo. First class place to visit with a large family. (Only thing on our wish list would be a Keurig coffee maker, but the percolator and quick kettle sufficed.)
Great house & perfect location
We had a great stay at the Pine Orchard house, it was perfect for our large family get together with plenty of space for adults and kids. We spent a lot of time just sitting on the porch and enjoying the peaceful surroundings. There were some nice little touches for the kids, a chalkboard in the basement and playing hide & seek in the house. Giant kitchen and a big dining room table for everyone to fit. Lovely walk to the private beach.
The only issue we had was the upstairs master toilet is having some issues and wouldn't stop running (and therefore not flushing). Husband had to fix it 2 or 3 times, which isn't exactly how he wanted to be spending his vacation. The master bedroom also has 2 awesome skylights; however, there are no blinds for them, so the room is bright very early.
Would definitely stay here again!
Hello and thanks for taking the time to submit a review about the property. We are glad to hear you enjoyed you stay and would return.
Also nice to hear the chalkboard wall was a hit with the kids. We hear even some adults have enjoyed the chalk festivities.
We sent our plumber out to the property and the master bath toilet issue has been resolved. Sorry we could not get him out there sooner. Please extend our gratitude to your husband for rolling up his sleeves during vacation.
