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 New Haven

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.

Spacious yet homey.

  • 5 of 5

As advertised and reviewed, a spacious yet homey place that easily accommodated our family of 4 adults and 2 children. The open first floor has ample seating for both dining and socializing. Sorry we didn't get a chance to grill and sit out on the private patio during our stay. Each bedroom had separate air conditioning units which allowed for customized sleeping temperatures. The convertible sofa in the main guest bedroom was perfect for a 3 year old sleeping close to his parents. The ability to park 2 cars in the driveway was great. The owners were responsive throughout the process and generous with their supplies (enjoyed a couple of bourbon manhattans, Chris!) Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Great Home for Family Gathering

Great home for our family reunion with 7 adults at Thanksgiving. Plenty of space, huge well-equipped kitchen, and convenient location. The owners were very accommodating. We would definitely rent this house again.

The owners were super responsive and exceedingly gracious with their home and making us feel very welcome. All was in good working order, it felt luxurious to drop into this house and feel so at home. Perfect for our classmates to gather and talk and share a meal.
