Traditional Beach Cottage
I've stayed at this cottage twice and will come again. It is directly on Long Island Sound, perhaps as close to the water as a residence can get. High tide comes within 25' of the porch, which makes it very special. It is not fancy but the new owner made several comfort improvements -- better outfitted kitchen, bedside lamps, and air conditioning (which is not necessary 360 days of the year). I had a lovely quiet week of sun and sand.
One modest suggestion-- it would be great to have screens on the double-doors facing the water.
Best week ever!!!
Rented the cottage for our son’s wedding in Branford. It could not have been more perfect. All was as expected with the notable exception of the view and the porch. Could not have foreseen how utterly gorgeous and relaxing this charming cottage would be!!!
Very pleased had a great time
Great location steps to ocean clean
We will be back. Highly recommend.
Beautiful shoreline cottage
Stunning views from the back porch were truly the highlight of this lovely bungalow on the beach. We could sit on the covered porch and look out at the shore in all kinds of weather. Really relaxing. Would definitely recommend for families with young kids.
Perfect place for family with little kids
This place was perfect for our group of 4 adults and 2 children aged 2 and 3. The kids had a blast digging on the beach and looking for shells. We loved the fact that we could let the kids roam the beach on their own while we were only steps away watching them from the covered front porch. There is also a public splashing pool and a playground only 10 minutes SLOW walk away. Restaurants and shopping are within easy 5 - 10 minutes drive.
The place was well prepared and clean when we arrived.
Our only objection to the place were the very soft beds. All 4 of us adults had trouble sleeping and left one night early because of the beds. Those who like soft beds should be happy though.
Beautiful Gem! But could use a few upgrades.
Let me start by saying that Patrick is phenomenal! He accepted our booking quickly, responded to all questions promptly, and provided all of the information that I needed ahead of schedule.
The house is right on the private beach
The private beach
Restaurants in the surrounding area
Hospitality of property manager
Lovely touches like soap, feminine products, lotion, restaurant menus.
The sound of the ocean
Ease of entry
The bed linens & towels (super soft!)
Certain areas of the home were very dusty and had cobwebs
Sticky fingerprints all over the TV
Overall decor was outdated
The front of the home looked unkempt (overgrown grass, etc.)
The refrigerator had an unpleasant odor
None of the bedrooms had TVS
The bed in one of the rooms upstairs was very uncomfortable, I think due to old or inadequate bed frame.
Provide a smart Blueray player (I went to Walmart and bought one on sale for $70 and it enabled us to watch Netflix, Hulu, etc. while we were there and it improved our stay)
Update decor a bit
Provide more seating for the deck
Add televisions to the bedrooms or at least one more TV
Provide a list of available channels
Overall we were extremely satisfied with our visit, and I plan to come and stay again. I highly recommend the home to people.
