About Christopher Monks

Hi There! My wife Shaina and I are newlyweds and we just moved in to this beautiful house in December of 2014. We are long-time New Haven residents and we LOVE this city! We have a reputation for hosting potlucks and holiday parties for our friends and family over the years, and you couldn't ask for a better space to entertain than this. We are very excited to share our home and ideally we would like to rent to families or large groups coming in to New Haven for special weekends at Yale, including alumni and graduation weekends. We look forward to meeting you soon!

Why Christopher Monks chose Wooster Square

Wooster Square is the most historic and peaceful neighborhood in the city. You can walk to Yale, Downtown New Haven, or a number of great restaurants. The house is Just 2-3 blocks away from famous Wooster St (Pepe's, Sally's, Etc). If pizza isn't your top choice there are a dozen other restaurants within walking distance that cater to a variety of tastes and preferences. The square itself is delightful and quintessential New England.

What makes this house unique

Dining room table seats ten and dining area is connected to the kitchen and bar area. The kitchen is great for breakfast seating with 4 stools to sit on the large island. Natural light from the sun fills the house in every room. Relax in the Jacuzzi tub before breakfast or after a night out. A hidden gem and rare find for this neighborhood. Close to everything New Haven has to offer.

Kitchen, 3 Bedrooms, Jacuzzi Tub (master bedroom), living room, dining area, and driveway. Wi-Fi password available upon request. There are no land lines for the phone and we do not have cable. But a large, crisp flat screen with direct internet connection is available for DVDs/Hulu/Netflix.

The owners will not be on site in the event that the entire house is rented, but we will be readily available and easy to reach.

Perfect for a Reunion Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This home worked perfectly for our group of 9. The house was very well appointed and the hosts were accommodating. The house was a 15 minute walk from Yale's campus and located in a very cute neighborhood. It was very convenient that the hosts allowed us to use whatever was in the fridge, pantry, and bar as we did not feel the need to rush out right away to the grocery store.

Beautiful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful stay and a great house for entertaining. We stayed there for our son's wedding with out of town guests and it was a comfortable house with plenty of room for all of us to get ready and recover. Would definitely stay there again and recommend to friends and family.The owners were very accomodating and made us feel at home.

What a fantastic house!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic house and backyard! The house is on a quiet street in a nice neighborhood walking distance (.5 mi) to downtown. It was spacious enough for 10 of us to spend the weekend of my son's wedding there. It was well appointed and Chris said we could use anything we needed in it which we did. The backyard was a hit with the twinkling lights and tiki torches!

We loved that we were able to invite out of town relatives over to visit before and after the wedding, It made the weekend so much more special and created memories we will always cherish. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us. You are a great host!

as a large extended family, in town for a wedding

  • 5 of 5

The spacious downstairs and gourmet kitchen allowed us to entertain extended family for a pre wedding brunch. With adequate room, our 92 year old mom could visit with family, stress free. The owners were available for quick questions. And the house is 2 blocks from Frank Pepe's Pizza. Really a great gem, well stocked and maintained, would gladly stay there again.

Location location location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for an family reunion base. Family in Wooster, New Haven, and Hamden all close by. The size was perfect, especially the back yard. With the intimate lighting, table available and chairs, we hosted a small event which was a hit with the cousins. The owner made himself available via text at almost any time.

We walked to great Italian restaurants and pastry shops, Wooster square, and Yale university. We also walked to the train station for a day trip to Manhattan!
