Great Getaway from the City!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I enjoyed the location, the historic beach house and its comfortable furnishings. The porch was a family favorite! It was a very relaxing stay and we found the environment to be peaceful and welcoming. We hope to return soon! Thank you Neil for a terrific stay.

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!
