Recent Connecticut property reviews

  • Great weekend getaway

    "Very much enjoyed the property as a home base for a long weekend getaway. The house was clean and comfortable with its open floor plan, and we found everything we needed on hand. The dining area with windows and skylight was especially enjoyable and provided birdwatching with your morning coffee. The setting was charming as pictured with a lovely garden under the pines. The owner was very accommodating and was there to meet us for an early check in. Would stay again."

  • Perfect

    "This house is perfect, perfect, perfect. beautiful house, could-not-be-beat location (directly in front of the beach), and completely easy to be in with a toddler -- nothing to break. We are very grateful we got to enjoy it."

  • Beautiful Beach House

    "This home was perfect for our family of five. I am very picky when chosing a vacation home and this home was amazing. It was spotless upon arrival, which is extremely important to me as I travel with an arsenal of cleaning supplies. I didn't even need them for this home. We enjoyed our morning coffee and an evening glass of wine on the large patio each day. The grill worked great and there is plenty of seating to enjoy dining alfresco. The beach was cleaned the day that we arrived, so it was very enjoyable during our stay. We especially enjoyed the 2 kayaks. There is also a walking trail just down the road. Would definately recommend a trip to the Mystic Seaport. We shopped, sat by the water and watched the boats and of course had lunch at Mystic Pizza. I would definately rent this home again and Debra was very quick to respond to e-mails. Thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful home! Just a side note: I think the 2nd bedroom may actually be a Queen sized mattress as the full sheets that we brought did not fit. Fortunately, there was a set of sheets in the closet that we were able to use."

  • Just Wonderful!

    "I can hardly describe the peace, and fun we all had during our stay at this wonderful house. So practical, easy, clean and the water right there on our feet, literally. During the day, we spent most of the time on the beach, enjoying the sun, soft breze, and nice people arround. During the night, the reflections of the moon on the water taking advantage of the small but cute deck. We had a blast, thank you Nancy and Mathew!!!!!!!"
