  • Charming, relaxing, but limited beach amenities

    "We just spent 16 nights in this charming cottage. The photos and descriptions in the HomeAway/VRBO listing are accurate, and the owners have furnished the place very nicely. The patio is especially nice, for morning coffee and evening outdoor meals (with fresh herbs available in pots). The kitchen is very well stocked with pots, pans and everything you could possible need for cooking. The shed has lots of beach-related supplies. The WiFi is unusually fast, with download speeds of 27 Mbps. The neighborhood is great for walking and folks are friendly. There are a few negatives, however. Be aware that the cottage is in the Cedar Crest Association, not the Chapman Beach Association. You only have access to the Cedar Crest beach, which is approximately 35 steps wide and 9 steps deep, at mid-tide; in other words, it’s a very small beach space. We ended up going to the Hammonasset State Park beach, which is 12 miles away. We have an annual pass to the park, but if you don’t have the pass, it costs $9/day if you are a CT resident and $15/day if a non-resident ($13/$22 on weekends). Also, there is no gas grill, just the charcoal Weber version and the television is not HD and is pretty much basic cable, which is unusual for a rental at this price level. Overall, we had a fun and relaxing experience and the owners were easy to work with."

  • Short stay at Little House in the Big Woods!

    "Stayed here for 2 nights to attend family reunion nearby. This is a great little hideaway in the woods. Restored 200 year old house is quaint and cozy. We loved the historic feeling and solitude of the property. The drive down the lane to get here is breathtaking and beautiful. Would be nice to come back and explore the woods and pond as we did not have time. This is a great property to get away from the city noise and bury yourself in a good book! Owner Eliza very easy to reach and helpful with suggestions for dining etc in immediate area. Bathroom stocked with lovely toiletries and kitchen stocked nicely as well (although very small). Winery down the road a bit fun to visit. Would love to return when we have more time!"

  • Excellent Vacation Home

    "We reserved the home for two weeks in mid June. Without a doubt, this was the best vacation home we have ever rented. The location is great, being only about a 5 block walk to the town beach and picnic grove. Branford is only about a 5 mile drive to New Haven. So lots to do and see. The town is long-established with beautiful homes, trees, and granite rock formations everywhere. Numerous marinas full of all types of boats and great sea food restaurants. The house has been well-maintained with updated baths and kitchen. The owners are quite thoughtful and take obvious pride in their property. You will not be disappointed"

  • Wonderful family vacation!

    "Do not hesitate to book this fantastic home! We had lovely family vacation for 18, ages 4-75. Fun for all! Easy drive to Stony Creek CT. Easy to park your car for few days. Quick ferry to the house. Home is beautiful. All bedrooms and baths are nicely done. Nice linens/bedding. Great, stocked kitchen (no microwave, no biggie). Wonderful decks for coffee and full meals while watching the sun set. Great little beach with kayaks. Plenty of room to roam, rocks to climb, places to relax. We took the Thimble Islands tour with Capt. Bob (fantastic), we ate dinner one night in Branford at Nataz, 10 minutes away, we sailed for few hours with Eric Treu at Sailworks (worth every penny), we rented 19ft boat for a week from docks in Guilford (totally worth it). One of the best family trips ever! Jeff was so accommodating and easy to work with. Rent it!"
