Wonderful, well-equipped home with fabulous ocean view.

  • 4 of 5

Our family very much enjoyed a great Christmas in the lovely small town of Madison. The home was very well-equipped and maintained, with plenty of space and room for seven or more. All essential supplies and necessities were provided. The ample fridge space was appreciated at Christmas. A quiet, friendly place with a home featuring an ocean-front location. We would certainly rent this home again.

Wonderful for the holidays!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with our adult children in this beautiful house. The kitchen was very well equipped. The house is very comfortable with two living areas and a gas fireplace - perfect for the holidays.

We had the best time at this house. It had everything we needed. Plenty of room for our large extended family.

The beach was perfect. My only recommendation is that you wear water shoes since it was a bit rocky.

The water was clean and perfect for swimming. The area is gorgeous. We did lots of walking, jogging and biking.

The owner, Jim was very easy to work with.

I hope we can return again next year!

Wonderful house and great location!

  • 5 of 5

It was so convenient with two young grandchildren to be able to go back and forth to the beach dependent on their napping. We loved the front porch and the backyard was fun for yard games. It was also a great area to walk!!

Clean, comfortable, spacious and has an incredible location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The proximity to the beach was perfect for the kids. Everyone had room to spread out and find some private space from time to time. It is conveniently located to the grocery store and town. The views of the water are wonderful. Just a few things you might want to check on....there is an ant problem. I hope the refrigerator was repaired for the next guests. Also, we feel a little bad as we did not realize that trash and recycling pickup alternates weeks. Unfortunately for the next guests there was quite a bit of trash and recycling left as we only had the one day (Tuesday) to get rid of the trash. My son mentioned that their room (the back bedroom with the queen bed) had stained towels and sheets with holes. I understand that you are not there to personally check on the linens so I thought I would mention it. In the grand scheme of things however, we all had a great time. We rented paddleboards two days and the kids pretty much lived in the water. An added bonus was that the water was very shallow at low tide and they could walk very far out. They loved that.

Delightful stay

  • 4 of 5

Our Home Away experience was wonderful. My grown son and daughter and our four grandchildren (a one year old, two five year olds and seven year old) enjoyed the beautiful pink sand private beach just a cross the street, the wide board dining table big enough for all of us and the two levels of bedrooms and multiple showers and tubs for removing sand. The location was perfect for local stops to Hammonasett and Harvey's Beach with memorable trips to Mystic Seaport and aquarium.

Only two "be awares". There are only two queen sized beds with three pairs of twin beds in three other rooms. In our case my son is single but otherwise might have been an issue. The house is a wonderful size with three living levels but the ceiling is the floor making for noisy mornings if people rise at different times.

All in all it is a great area (have breakfast at the Shore Diner and dinner at Friends and Company!) with beautiful views from anywhere you walk on Seaview and it's well situated for any touring you have in mind. We would enthusiastically recommend the house!
