Love this cozy Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for my family this summer. It is close to the beach and just feels like you are home. You can walk to two beaches and use the yard to hang out with your family. It is the easy beach house you are looking for. Even on the one rainy day we had we sat on the porch and played cards it felt fun and comfortable like we lived there. Stay here, you will love it.

Neil is a great host and good communicator.

What an adorable beach cottage!

  • 4 of 5

My family, consisting of 2 adults, teenage son (along with various friends) and family dog spent a wonderfully relaxing week at this perfect beach cottage.

The pictures are a completely accurate depiction of the property...the beach access is literally right across the street! Morning coffees, dining "al fresco", reading books and family game nights on the screened-in front porch were our favorite activities of the whole week!

The cottage is in a very family friendly neighborhood with great areas for walking, biking and kayaking. We look forward to our next vacation on beautiful Summer Island for relaxation and quality family-time!

Connecticut vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time at Neil's Beach Cottage. The cottage was very clean and the location was wonderful.We had six people in our party and we were very comfortable at the cottage. The neighbors were very friendly. We really enjoyed our time on the porch every evening. Neil was great about answering all of my questions. We hope to return to the cottage some time soon.

A Welcome Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cottage. Thanks Neil for a few days of fun in the sun and one terrific thunder and lightening storm. It was like a 4th of July heavens way.Your neighbors are very friendly and made us feel right at home. Sitting on the porch in the morning looking at the sound was a great way to start the day and dinner on the porch a perfect way to end the day. I will look back and remember your cottage fondly.

lovely getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was terrific! We really enjoyed our week at the Branford shore. We're from CT and we return every year to visit family and friends. Neil's beachhouse was the perfect location to gather and enjoy our visit. Our two year old had an amazing time in the yard and at the beach. Lenny's seafood is one of my favorites and this beachhouse is really close by. We had a wonderful time and look forward to returning next summer!

A wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Neil's beach house was the perfect vacation rental for the days leading up to our wedding this summer. It provided plenty of space during the day for our families and friends to meet and enjoy the beach and surrounding area during the day and comfortably slept most of the wedding party (6 adults) in the evening. For being over 100 years old, the cottage is bright, clean, and cozy with modern amenities such a well adorned kitchen, laundry room, and living area. The best feature is definitely the covered porch with wooden rocking chairs and a pleasant view of the ocean. The property is located in a quiet neighborhood with little traffic and although there was only space for two vehicles in the driveway, there was enough space for additional vehicles on the street. The property is distant enough from downtown Branford to be a peaceful retreat but close enough to the main roads to be accessible for fine dining, shopping, and major highways. Neil was incredibly helpful and welcoming and we couldn't have asked for a more relaxing place to rent before our wedding. I would definitely recommend this rental to a small family with young and older children, a group of close friends, or a couple looking for a relaxing get-a-way. We hope to return again in the future!
