Property description

If this home is reserved, Please call me, I do have other houses. If the quote seems a bit too much, please also call me. I am willing to work with you....Yvette 203-444-4477

Please note many of the reviews were during my husbands brain surgery, while I was out of state caring for him. The neighborhood had been hit by hurricane Sandy and houses were being torn down and rebuilt.

Please read the reviews from the last Guest. They did come in from another site, but all from Guest who stayed at the house.

Last Jan, when I had the house fully booked, rather than cancelling all Guest. I let them know of damage and repairs being down, due to a broken pipe. I had no idea we would have some electrical issues. The have been resolved.

Please read the updated reviews which I am posting.

The house was lovely. Very clean, cute, and peaceful. We all loved the quirky decorations. Axel was very prompt in returning emails and was very professional. Me and my friends want to rent this place again for a girl's weekend! It's so close to downtown Guilford! It's awesome!

Easy and quick communication. Spacious house with clean linens and towels. Guilford is such a lovely town with a couple of coffee shops in walking distance and the shore is a quick jog away.

Lovely home--beautifully decorated and charming. We especially loved having breakfast on the sunny porch. We spent the weekend there with family who had come into town for a memorial service and it was a comfortable and welcoming space. Great location near a cute little town and access to local beaches. Only suggestion would be to leave more supplies such as toilet paper and garbage bags. With 8 people, it just wasn't enough and we had to go to the store almost immediately.

I am sorry about the garbage bags and toliet paper. We ususally leave enough for Guest to start with.

What a lovely house! Plenty of room to spread out, all the comforts of home. Located on a quiet side street, within walking distance of some really nice restaurants. We were very happy with our stay.

We rented /Yvette's "Artist Owned" house in Guilford for out of town wedding guests and the location was great. Folks could walk to the town green in the morning to get coffee or go for a stroll along the marshes. The kitchen was very well stocked with cooking supplies, which was a great benefit since our guests did a lot of cooking from the house. You'll need to pack specialty cooking items but the basics are there. The deck in back was a beautiful place to sit and enjoy the morning and afternoon sun and to eat meals. Kitchen and porch were the real selling points of this house.

This property was perfectly situated As we had a wedding in Branford and did not want to pay for three hotel rooms! It is well located, only a few minutes walk to the town center in Guilford. There was plenty of room for 5 adults, wifi certainly appreciated. We spent some lovely mornings and evenings on the enjoyed our visit very much.

'We had a wonderful time at this lovely home in Guilford. We found the home to be cozy, comfortable and beautifully decorated. We will definitely stay here again in the future. We loved being able to walk to town to the Green, shoppes, restaurants, etc. I would definitely recommend this home to my friends and family. And the woman we worked with was also so sweet and helpful.'

Artist's own beautiful spacious 1900 sq ft home. Close to the beach. Just a 10 minute drive away. This house has 4 bedroom and 2 bathrooms. This home also includes fully equipped kitchen and a large deck. The house has a large yard which is across from the Meadow River. Built in 1860, it was once a button factory and its character has been preserved, yet it features the modern conveniences you expect in a vacation home.

About the area: Guilford boasts of having the most beautiful green on the shoreline where you'll find wonderful restaurants, eclectic shops and plenty of colonial charm. Yale University is 15 mins from the house. The Clinton Outlets are 5 mins away and feature premium brands including Brooks Brothers and Calvin Klein. Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casinos are also nearby for those wanting top name entertainment.
