The Best Vacation Rental So Far

  • 5 of 5

I must say, this is the best vacation rental I have lived. It really felt like home.

It was spacious and really calm neighborhood.

The best part of it was the owner. They were so friendly and co-operative. They made me so comfortable and were extremely helpful.

Nice & Clean home, big fridge, small office set up.

Public Beach is very close and regarding stores - You name it and its near by.

Long story short. Its an awesome place to spent a good vacation.

3 month stay

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here about 3 months. Overall a good experience.

Location: It is located in a quiet and safe neighborhood in West Haven. It is about a 10 minute drive to New Haven. Also, it is a 3-5 minute drive to west haven train station (25 minute walk) which takes you all the way to Grand Central Station in NYC. Also, there are several public bus routes within 3-10 minute walk that take you into New Haven.

Place itself: It has plently of parking space. It could probably fit 3-4 cars. The place is clean and the kitchen already has most things you would need. Personally, I loved the bed and found it very comfortable, and I'm usually hard to please with that. Also, I worked a lot of nights and sleeping during the day was no issue with how well the curtains block out the light. I never had any issue with the internet connection, speed, or the cable TV.

I would say the only issues is it can get a bit cold in the winter on some days (but a space heater is supplied and it really makes up any difference). Also, the bathroom and kitchen sinks drain a bit slow.

For he value in the area I would say this was a great deal.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for two weeks on a vacation to visit family and our old home town. It was great. You can eat in so you don't have to go to a restaurant for every meal and you are not cooped up in one room like a hotel. There is outdoor space and neighborhood is quiet and nice. The owners are wonderful, if you need anything, they are there for you. We would definitely stay there again.
