Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful!!
We loved this house so much that I'm not sure where to begin. The house was clean, well decorated and the perfect size for my husband, me and our 2 year old. We rented this house to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary and my husband's birthday. The location was great and the morning view from the bedroom window was incredible. I was up early enough to see the sunrise both mornings, breathtaking! The house is one house away from the water and within walking districts to restaurants and a few small shops. My husband and I joked that we didn't want to give this house a good review because then the secret would be out. We have rented a few houses on Home Away, but this one is truly special. We plan on going back but we're not sure when yet. Rachel and her husband were very nice and so easy to communicate with. This house is wonderful and we 100% recommend you stay there if you have the opportunity to do so.
What a fabulous review. We are so thrilled you love our home and look forward to having you again.
This cute home is our favorite vacation home.
It is hard to beat the view of the thimble islands from the home. We love the new king sized bed in the bedroom. Can't wait for next year!
Great location, beautiful house
Beautiful clean house in a great location. Couldn't ask for more.
Small but all-inclusive rental on the beach
The house was an outstanding value with beautiful views of the Sound and Thimbles. For a small group, the house was excellent. Kitchen was complete and well-stocked. Seating on the lower level was more than adequate. Rental even includes a washer/dryer. As the house comes with a temporary membership to a local beach club, access to the shore is outstanding. Restaurants are nearby, and Branford center is a short drive away. Strongly recommended.
Perfect in every way
We love the cozy little house with the fabulous views. Having Owenego down the path make this our favorite place on earth.
Best place ever!! Location, location, location!!!
Best location in town! The view was great! The beach house had everything you could possibly want. The access to the club and the beaches was a great feature. The owners Rachael & Jeff are very nice and do respond to your questions. It was a great vacation and will be going back to the same Beach House. Not even going to look at something else.
