Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was perfect for our family of 3! The weather at the beginning was hot, hazy and humid. We spent hours at the beach and enjoying some great kayaking. The end of the week was rainy and windy, but we still enjoyed ourselves watching the waves. The view from this house is spectacular! Thank you so much for sharing your home.

Perfect location - wonderful neighbors

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this house twice and enjoyed our stay very much. The location is amazing - right on the water - the kids love walking on the rocks and looking for shells. The house has two bathrooms and a washer and dryer which really came in handy during our stay. The neighbors are very friendly and the neighborhood is quiet and family-friendly. Kathy was very easy to work with.

What a wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I were thrilled with this spacious cottage. Easy access to the beach, restaurants & family. Perfect for our July birthday BBQ with friends or a quiet night in just the two of us. Lovely neighbors & neighborhood. We have been home only a few hours & we already miss MP.

Lovely, Quaint, Sublime

  • 4 of 5

This quintessential New England cottage is a gem. We will be enjoying this little spot again for the 3rd time, and are continually charmed by its views and its peaceful sanctuary-like atmosphere.

The owners have updated this home just enough without taking away its rustic simplicity.

We enjoy the fireplace in the winter, the sunrise from the master bedroom, swimming directly from the back yard, and watching the tide come and go.

A special little piece of heaven........

Relaxing and Quiet - A Perfect Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We loved our vacation in Guilford, CT. The place was great - it had everything we needed to enjoy a week away from home. The view was outstanding and the ability to kayak right from the house was a real plus. The community and beach was quiet and quaint.
