                We rented this cottage from Jul 3 to Jul 10 for a well needed break from living with our four young grandchildren for a year.The description of the cottage on VRBO was totally accurate and the cottage was even better than the description. Our biggest priority when traveling is always cleanliness. It was sterile clean, bright and cheerful. The furnishings were very comfortable. We like to cook and the cottage was fully equipped. Mary, the owner was close by if anything was needed (it wasn't). She is a delightful person. The street is quiet and just a short walk to the beach. The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet and you feel very secure .You are walking distance to Lenny's, a great seafood restaurant and watering hole. Also, Ballou's is close by, a seafood market, and a liquor store.Don't miss the Thimble Islands boat cruise. If you chose this area for a vacation I highly recommend staying in this cottage..WE LOVED IT!

                We were in Branford for my husband's high school reunion; Mary's little cottage was just perfect for us! The location was ideal and the house was so comfortable. We'll have to come back just to try the new places that we didn't get to on this trip and we'll want to stay here~!

                A delightful place to stay. All the comforts of home within a block from the water on Long Island Sound. This cottage gave me the place I needed to recharge after living in a big city. Provides easy access to a wealth of things to do in the area. The owner is gracious, and the residents of the area were very friendly as well. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

                We stayed here for 5 nights when our son was graduating from Yale. We were unable to get a hotel in New Haven which ended up being a blessing! This was a wonderful little home in a perfect location. We took several walks around the wonderful shoreline neighborhood and along the beach. The house had everything you could possibly need and the bed was very comfortable. It was so nice to have this great place to come back to following the many mandatory graduation events. I'd highly recommend this place to other Yale families. It was an easy 15 minute drive to the university from here. Mary, the owner, was a very nice lady as well.

                My wife and I spent 10 days in this charming New England Home. It was delightful, very comfortable, bright and immaculately clean. The owner Mary is a lovely person with a great personality. The town of Branford is fun, when we were there one evening there was a free jazz concert on the village green. Also there are great little shops and recommend the ice cream place Ashleys. The house is close to the shoreline and is well located for sightseeing in southern Connecticut. The local restaurant of Lenny's is not to be missed.

                My husband and I recently stayed here and had a wonderful and relaxing time. Everything you need is right there, inside and outside of the home. The home itself is lovely, clean and very, very comfortable!! We would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone who is considering!!

                The house is exactly what we were looking for. It was charming, very comfortable, bright and was immaculately clean. It's in a quiet area and is a great place to decompress. Nice to have the beach right at the end of the street. Great central location too. Highly recommended!

                Mary's home is adorable. Branford is a great location for a holiday rental. Downtown enjoys a village green fringed with many shops and restaurants. Driving distances to surrounding towns are fairly short. The location of the home is perfect with the shoreline just a moment away. The house is charming and most comfortable and reflects the lovely personality of the owner.

                We spent three nights here in late October while visiting our daughter, who is a student at Yale. The house and location was great. We walked to the beach and through the surrounding neighborhoods every day. It was also an easy drive (10 minutes) over to New Haven to see our daughter. This is a great alternative to staying in the overpriced hotels near the Yale campus. We will definitely stay here again.

                We stayed at this house at the end of May 2008, and enjoyed our trip tremendously! The owner is very nice and she was available if needed. Everything in the house worked well and the kitchen was well stocked with pans and utensils, etc. The location is great - an easy walk to Lenny's and short walk or drive to the ocean wall and to see amazing homes along the ocean! We highly recommend this rental!
