Guestbook comments from the manager

I am currently in Florida. My husband had brain surgery on Sept 11, 2014, to remove a brain tumor.The surgery went well but, he is still in the hospital due to other complications. I do have a wonderful family cleaning and doing repairs for me while I am away. I have read the house needs updating. The house is an older home with wide board floors, some slant. If you are looking for 5 stars, this is not the house for you. If you are looking for a great price and location to town. In a clean well stocked home that sleeps 8, this is the PLACE.

We spent a week here in July/August 2007, there were 7 adults, 4 young kids, and 2 dogs. While we were a bit of a squeeze with our numbers, we were extremely happy with the house. The location was superb--5 minute drive from town beach, 15 minute drive from Hammonnasset State Beach, 5 minute walk to charming town center. We cooked on the grill every night. At the end of the street is a super nice family with a 6 year old boy; if you have young kids he'll find you and is fun to play with! Nice touche: the free wireless internet/phone. Only (minor) drawback: lots of mosquitoes, so bring your bug spray. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Just OK

  • 2 out of 5
Owner - Very easy to work with re: reservations and smooth transaction (although did have to initiate email for final details).

Location - Very good. Walkable to town square, shops, restaurants. Street was a bit suspect with some trash, etc. at end of the road, but overall the area is very nice. Guilford is a really cute town.

House - Just ok. A bit disappointing for the price. Felt "worn" - not as fresh as photos would make it seem and quite a lot of additional clutter (old books, etc.). Downstairs bedrooms were very musty and beds were not comfortable. Could use fresh paint, decluttering, new furniture and better lighting. Very strange kitchen layout with fridge in the sunporch.

Overall - It served our needs visiting family in the area. There aren't a lot of rental houses for less than a week. That said, we have rented other houses & this one was kind of disappointing. It could use some TLC.

Wonderful location, house needs work

  • 3 out of 5
We had a lovely vacation in Guilford. Our family of 6 adults and 2 young children enjoyed the house, though it was lacking many things such as toilet paper, hand soap, hand towels, garbage bags. Things listed on the property details were not present (outdoor shower, additional tables outside). With some more attention to detail, this house can be really excellent, but so many minor but important things have been overlooked. I emailed the owner about our concerns but have not received a response.
High points are the location - walkable to the adorable center of town, drivable to the main commercial center (Walmart, supermarket, etc). Recommend Bufalina and Ashley's Ice Cream. Walkable to the beach, though with all our supplies we chose to drive. Large back deck and backyard that was perfect for our young children. Appliances all worked well and we ate most meals at the house without problems.

While our stay was overall enjoyable, I would have a hard time recommending this house to others without knowing that attention had been paid to many items I emailed the owner about.

Owner's Response: I feel really bad about this review, I am not sure if my mail went to their spam, but I not only offered to refund the cleaning fee and the offer a few free nights. I had told her I would call her back but my son was in a car accident and all of my energy went to his situations. The picnic tables were on the lawn and one left on the deck. The outside shower was taken out, since people have left the water running for weeks. The person who works for me, did not take this off of the add. We have no problem with people using the down stairs shower. The bed had been replaced, so I am not sure what the issue is. I agree the cleaning lady should have left cleaning products and said she did. We do not leave products for the whole stay. Yes, a chair was broke and the cleaner tried to fix it. We take care of everything when it is brought to our attention and again, offered her money back and a free stay. I am not sure what else I can do. Thank you for reading this. Yvette

Great house near historic Guilford town green!

  • 5 out of 5
This is a very nice house with many great aspects, especially its location which is in very close proximity to the town green, hiking trails, town beach, and train station. While I did not stay in the house personally, I had booked the house for one week for international guests to stay while visiting for my wedding, and they were thrilled with the stay. The home is cozy and well decorated, with a homey feel of comfort in each room. Although it is spacious and adequit for the advertised number of people, it should be noted that three rooms offer double beds, and remaining guests share a room with multiple twin beds. This wasn't a problem for us, as there were two couples and three individuals.

The owner, Yvette is a very amiable woman who I found very easy to work with scheduling the house, and went the extra mile to make sure everything was just perfect for our friends. She responded quickly and clearly to my early inquiries, and her care for the individuals who stay in the house is evident. It strikes me that if any issue had arisen, which it did not, she would have spared nothing to correct it quickly.

If its your first stay in coastal Connecticut, or you want a beautiful place to spend a relaxing visit for yourself or visiting friends, you can't go wrong with this house. It exemplifies the traditional feel of coastal New England.

Bon Voyage!

Cute home - good value for the price.

  • 3 out of 5
We were a family of 6 and fit quite nicely in this house. It has a rustic charm with lots of art work that makes for a cozy environment. Loved the fire place - we found good hard wood at the market. The little town of Guilford is charming and the Cilantro coffee shop has great pastries and other breakfast goodies - really worth a try.

That being said I need to mention that this house could use some attention. It needs some updating to really shine. I have privately emailed the owner to relate some of our concerns and it is my feeling from working with them on this reservation they are very attentive people and will respond accordingly.

As you can see from other guests reviews this place gets a lot of praise and is worth booking for your next trip.

Owner's Response: I am happy that you enjoyed you stay. Thank you for you honesty regarding the house...I am very disturbed to think I have paid someone very good money to handle my properties while I had to be away for three months...I am on the road in a few days and everything that you mentioned to me,will be handled...Anyone that knows me knows that I am very serious about the upkeep of the houses....I welcome you back for a free stay so you can see the things you mentioned are taken care of. I wish more people would be honest and let me know about things that have been overlooked. Its not acceptable...I take great pride in what I do. I can't wait to arrive, since I am bringing some great treasures that have been in storage...TV has been updated, new beds coming...Thank you for taking this time to read this...Yvette

Very Quaint, rustic home. Great Fireplace!

  • 3 out of 5
Very nice rustic home conveniently located near a small downtown area with shops and restaurants. Well stocked kitchen. Large backyard and deck. Awesome fireplace but you have to bring your own wood. Owner was easy to work with and very responsive to requests. The transaction was very smooth.

About 35 to 40 minutes from Mohegan Sun Casino and two Outlet Shopping Centers.
