I spent a week with my 3 small children and au pair in this lovely home and we had a delightful time walking to the beach everyday and exploring Madison. I highly recommend, the home is very well equipped and lovely, Cynthia was great and we will come again!
We are a family of 4, including 2 children aged 9 and 6. We all had a great time. The house is only a 15 minute walk to the Madison center of town and centrally located with regard to the other important sites in the town. The house is roomy and well laid out. All rooms are clean with furniture that is fully functional and well-maintained. The bedrooms are numerous and sleep all comfortably and the temperature control in the house is easy and perfect. Most every room also has a ceiling fan that works. The kitchen has great appliances, and is the focal point of the house, with access to nearly every other area. There is no discernible ant or other insect infestation within the house. The TV and the laundry facilities are completely adequate and functional. There is a functional WiFi password-protected WiFi. Bathrooms are clean, too.
Adjacent to the kitchen there is a well-lighted, large eating area that has an exit to the patio. We happily ate meals both in this area and on the patio. The large outdoor gas grill is fully functional, and we cooked about 5 meals on it over 2 weeks. We ate outside on the patio on the clean and appropriate outdoor furniture (complete with umbrella). The yard is extremely large and safe for the children, who spent innumerable hours playing there. The front porch is also a nice place to read or work, with comfortable furniture. There is a fully-functional outdoor shower that our children used daily.
Madison Avenue is relatively quiet with minimal car traffic. The walk to the beach is approximately 5 minutes, safe and highly convenient. We especially like the close-in "purple sand" beach, as it is not too crowded and offers the right size and safety for young children. From the house you are no more than a 15 minute walk to most other beach-related sites. There were no annoying nearby neighbors during our 2 weeks there. In fact, our kids made friends and played with the next door children.
Note: The owner is very responsive to your needs/questions on a continuous basis via text messaging or email, and welcomed our bringing our cat for 2 weeks. She is perfect and just the type of owner one should seek.
This house was a perfect summer getaway for our three-generation family. Everyone loved this clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated house. It is roomy and has the amenities that made it feel like a true home away from home. The children loved the big square coffee table, perfect for their Legos; the wide side yard, perfect for a game of whiffleball; and the outdoor shower, perfect after a long day at the beautiful beach.
The adults loved the enclosed side porch with its long table where we ate most meals; the open comfortable front porch, the easy walks to the beach and to town; and cooking in the well-equipped kitchen.
The owner met us on arrival and was available for questions during our stay. All in all we spent a great week and hope to return next summer.
We loved our stay at this unique, comfortable, and roomy home located a couple of blocks from the shore. The house was very clean and nicely furnished and the yard and patio area were beautifully landscaped. Madison, CT is a very special town and this house is a perfect place to spend quality vacation time with your family and pets.
Madison is a delightful, quaint seaside town with many boutiques and restaurants, and several town beaches. Madison is also home to Hammonasset Beach State Park, the state's longest public beach.
The idyllic Town Green is host to summer concerts, and antique and art festivals.
