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.

Great place to gather the family!

  • 5 of 5

Chris and Shaina's beautifully decorated and well appointed home was a wonderful place to gather our family for a late-holiday get together. The fully equipped kitchen and spacious dining and living area made all of us feel right at home. The hosts were very accommodating with our late booking and prompt and helpful with all communications. Pleasant and quiet neighborhood and we especially appreciated the off-street parking given the recent snowstorm. We really enjoyed our stay!

Great family holiday gathering

  • 5 of 5

The home was comfortable, decorated beautifully for the holidays, and perfect for our family since we needed to be near our elderly mother. Loved the bright kitchen, the fenced-in backyard, and the comfortable living and dining room areas.

Thanks for a lovely stay!

Fabulous vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

House was extremely comfortable & we loved it!! It has a great kitchen which is well stocked and has room to sit and visit with the cook or even help out. Even though there are many great places to eat nearby, it was perfect having the kitchen to get the right foods in our son before his matches & he always returned starved too so it was in use again. The beds were all very comfortable, the washer & dryer an added bonus - and the parking really put it over the top. The house is well located and so convenient. We would definitely stay there for future tournaments.

A Family Friendly Spacious Party House

  • 5 of 5

The Monk's have a fantastic family home that is open and friendly and welcoming. Centrally located with plenty of parking, well labeled instructions throughout the house, comfortable beds, and everything needed to host a family Christmas party of 30. The homey feel created a comfortable and relaxed environment, all had a memorable time.

Rare find - nice large space near Yale - great for kids/families

  • 4 of 5

Very friendly owners and super responsive to any needs. Should be noted that this VRBO property (unlike others I've stayed in, but maybe I'm the exception) is also the primary residence of the owners which has its pros/cons. Pros - there were some fun games for the kids, a bar and food that they're willing to share. Cons - Refrigerator was full, Dishwasher was full, showers/bathrooms contain their toiletries/etc, closets are full, etc.. I'm still giving them a strong 4 stars, because it really is a nice property and they're so friendly and accommodating. Just keep in mind that the experience is more like "staying with someone" (obviously, they were not physically there) than like other VRBOs which tend to be "uninhabited" and more specifically rental-only properties. It's a good 15+ minute walk to campus, but they have off-street parking where we kept a car and were easily able to make the trips back and forth.

Friendly and Accommodating Hosts - Wonderful House and Location

  • 5 of 5

We had Thanksgiving here, for a group of 12 and it was perfect for our needs. The house is large and has a great setup for many people. The kitchen opens to the dining room and living room so there is much room for gathering. What is even better is that there is a large outside patio right off of the kitchen. It could easily be used for a gathering and it is fenced in for privacy. The house was very clean and homey! Much artwork and well thought out designs. The location is perfect - within walking distance (if you like to walk) of Yale, right next door to Little Italy and also extremely close to the train and the highway. The hosts could not have been more outgoing and accommodating. They really were wonderful! We would stay here again and would highly recommend! Thank you Chris!
