Guestbook comments from the owner

"Dear Carol,

Back to Reality! yes, a 'cheerful thought' brings to my mind sitting on the deck at your lovely home. Your home certainly felt like 'a home away from home' so comfortable and inviting. We all thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and lovely scenery. Couldn't have been more pleased to celebrate my 60th exactly where we did. Wish you and yours all the best!

Kind Regards,

Josephine"

A perfect setting for the bride's family

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beautiful, clean, well appointed home and hope to go back again on a less hectic weekend.

Our daughter married at the nearby Owenego Inn and this home provided the perfect setting for the bride and her entourage to prepare on the big day. We had three generations all accommodated in beautiful bedrooms. The kitchen was set up with everything a professional chef would need and there was plenty of deck and living space to read quietly, nap or watch TV. Finally the largest deck overlooking the water and harbor was breathtaking. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your magnificent home on this very special occasion.

Great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a nicer rental property. This was PERFECT for our extended family visit to Branford. It is extraordinarily well equipped with tons of extra linens, utensils, dishes, etc. We had two young grandchildren with us and there was plenty of room for them to play. The house was immaculate and the water views are really lovely. It was quite warm during our visit and the AC kept up beautifully. We also enjoyed the membership in the beach and tennis club just a short distance away. We'd rent this again in a heartbeat!

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

This home is 100% as advertised!

Immediately upon arrival we noticed 2 things.... the house was SPOTLESS and the views are spectacular! Thankfully, there is plenty of outdoor space to enjoy them. The photos are so accurate that even though we were coming to the home for the first time, it already felt familiar.

The rooms are large and extremely comfortable. The bedrooms have plenty of storage space and there is a more than sufficient stash of towels, bedding, etc. The kitchen is extremely well appointed. Every single appliance, utensil, etc that we needed was there - we cooked most meals in the home so this was a huge plus! There is a TON of cutlery, plates, etc

We had an extremely wonderful week with our family at this spectacular home.

Memorial Day weekend in Branford, Ct.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely and well equipped home. There are water views on three sides of the house with large windows to capture the view. The Branford area was lovely, and I strongly suggest the 45 minute boat tour of the Thimble Islands. A terrific Memorial Day weekend getaway. Steve

Amazing In Every Way!!

  • 5 of 5

What impressed me the most about this property............everywhere you turn there is a spectacular view from inside the house, even the bathrooms!! Both inside and out are meticulously clean and well maintained. Even though it was October I enjoyed relaxing on the private beach and watching the sunsets, just breathe taking. The master bath was a favorite of mine, like being in my own private Spa. Loved the kitchen, and there is absolutely everything you need to feel at home. Sitting on the deck in the evenings watching the boats after spending a relaxing time in the hot tub. There are great places to eat and grocery stores close by. I hope to go back again in the summer time to enjoy a nice swim in the ocean. Carol and Tom are responsive if you need anything at all and are very kind and considerate owners. Thank you for everything..........

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family, 7 adults, needed a large home for a family reunion, and this home was perfect for us. It was clean, with an open layout, and large enough for all of us to have enough space and be comfortable. The gourmet kitchen was fully equipped and had everything we needed to cook our meals. We especially loved sitting at the kitchen table at dinnertime with the fantastic water view. On the other side of the house we watched the sun set over the sound every night…and in the hot tub, we watched the moon rise. The home also offers a private sandy beach right in the back of the house that we enjoyed. There were amenities everywhere, including a huge tv where we watched the Michigan game on very comfortable sofas. We took turns enjoying the massage chair! This really was luxury at its finest! We found the nearby area beautiful with lots of great shops and restaurants. One piece of advice: be sure to bring your binoculars so you can enjoy spotting the many varieties of birds! Thank you, Carol and Tom, our family enjoyed our wonderful getaway. I highly recommend this vacation home on the Connecticut shore.
