Here are reviews from past guests who rented our home through another online service:
Laura, October 2017:
This is a great house for groups. Our group of friends stayed during our reunion at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. Not only was it an easy walk to the school, but it's in the neighborhood most of lived in as grad students, which was fun. We used the outdoor space to gather in as the evening wound down, and had one nice breakfast around the dining room table. Jo made it easy to schedule and met one of our group to deliver the key. We were grateful for the place to gather.
Joe, May 2017:
My husband and I rented Jo and Doron's house as a place for our wedding party to stay at during our wedding weekend in New Haven. Because we live in the area, Jo graciously offered us a full tour before booking the property and explained the use of its amenities. Communicating with her was not only a breeze, but we felt her genuine support and excitement from her for our upcoming nuptials. The house (and its incredible garden) was a beautiful, comfortable, central location for ourselves and our wedding party.

This home is a beautiful example of the past and the present. Set back off the street and tucked in among the many beautiful gardens, sits this gem. Ample and well preserved, this home is more than shelter. It is a very special place. We loved our stay at Jo's!!
David, May 2016
This was a beautiful home in a lovely neighborhood. The house was very clean, and was true to it's listing. The hosts left linens and towels, including extras for additional guests who may have needed to sleep on the couches. A dining table cloth and outdoor chair cushions were also available. The grounds were impeccably manicured and the gardens and flowers out back were beautiful.
We had a great weekend visit and would recommend this listing to friends without hesitation.
