About Judy Davies

When we bought our cottage on the CT shore in Guilford, I was determined to provide our guests with all the comforts of home, with nice bed linens, towels, dishes, kitchenware and table cloths. Those things matter to me and I'm sure they do to you, too. The living space is serene and cozy--but also a great place to entertain family and friends. There are kayaks and bikes that work! I want you to enjoy the cottage as much as we do! For more details, go to GuilfordBeachHouse.com Judy Stoeven Davies

                                                                  Very relaxing vacation at this wonderful cottage by the water. Had a terrific couple of weeks here in Guilford. Loved our walks by the water and kayaking!

                                                                  Beautiful cottage, beautiful community, beautiful vacation!

                                                                  Osee D.

                                                                  Everything as advertised, and then some. Let's just say that the intangible pleasures this spot afforded were just as awesome as those you could actually see, feel, hear, touch and smell--and that was a lot, including one of the best summer rental reading libraries on the Eastern Seaboard! My wife and I (and our dog Gigi) loved it.

                                                                  The best in Guiford

                                                                  Debra R.

                                                                  The week was amazing. The house is perfect in every way for a getaway week. The owner is incredible and made every effort to ensure we had a great time. I highly recommend this house and will Definitely be back next summer!

                                                                  Super clean beautiful home!

                                                                  Rebecca B.

                                                                  Already cannot wait for next summer! Beautiful, clean home in a family friendly yet quiet location with wonderful views, beaches! Home was as describe, Judy was readily available to answer any questions and was great to work with. Kitchen has everything anyone would need, bedrooms are comfortable and cozy, the open concept living/dining and kitchen area provided a wonderful atmosphere with incredible views from every angle. There are games, books and plenty of movies for evening, a super fun diving board off the end of the jetty on the beach, and a relaxing front deck with plenty of space for soaking up the sun or dining while listening to the tide coming in! The neighborhood is great for biking and the coves are wonderful areas for novice (or experienced) kayakers like myself. The Guilford town green is only a short drive away and has some wonderful shops and restaurants if you can pull yourself away from the beach. HIGHLY recommend a stay at this lovely beach cottage. Cannot wait to return next summer!

                                                                  Indian Cove cottage

                                                                  Peter W.

                                                                  We have rented the cottage for the last two years and hope to do so again next year. The cottage is comfortable, light and airy, stylish—stocked with good books and videos, bikes and kayaks . The kitchen is well equipped and kitchen herbs are just outside the front door.

                                                                  The deck has a huge expanse of sky and sea to enjoy, and the neighborhood is quiet and friendly. A lot to like.

                                                                  Sweet cottage with sparkling views!

                                                                  Deborah S.

                                                                  What a lovely spot! The cottage is steps away from a lovely private swimming beach, and is situated in a quiet, gentle neighborhood where walking or biking is a joy. But you don't even have to leave the deck of the cottage to enjoy a perfect vacation by the ocean. The cottage is bright, airy, and very thoughtfully equipped. Town is a ten minute car ride with a great market, and some special restaurants and shops. The property owners are friendly, responsive and considerate. I recommend this to anyone who loves beaches, nature, walking,biking, boating, reading, eating, and getting a good night's sleep. Deborah S.
