Charming, comfortable, large home with water views and amenities in a gorgeous location.

  • 5 out of 5
We had the pleasure of spending a weekend at this beautiful summer home. We had views of Long Island Sound when we woke up in the morning and a beautiful view at breakfast of the backyard inlet. We watched the wildlife and kayakers enjoying the inlet and even saw a beautiful crane land and visit for awhile. The house has everything you need and then some. Very well equipped, clean, and cozy. Nautical appointments are every where in the house which makes it so beachy and enjoyable. The owners were wonderful and made sure we were settled in and were available to answer all our questions. The surrounding area is just gorgeous and you can take nice long scenic waterfront strolls. My only regret is we had a family event and couldn't spend enough time enjoying this wonderful home. We highly recommend this rental. You will not be disappointed.

Wonderful Stay!!!

  • 5 out of 5
My son and now daughter in-law had a beautiful wedding in Branford, CT. We rented this lovely home from the King family to stay in during all the festivities. This couldn't have worked out better. My whole immediate family was able to stay together and enjoy each others company for a few days prior to the wedding. The house allowed us to relax during what normally is a stressful and chaotic time. Wonderful neighborhood! My husband and I enjoyed a daily walk around the very scenic shoreline. The house is cozy, clean, and has all the amenities to make you feel at home. We were very pleased with our stay and highly recommend this rental. Thanks again King Family!!!

Ideal Gathering Spot for Large Families

  • 5 out of 5
This well kept home was the perfect accommodation for our whole family, including our grandchildren, and was not a disappointment for those who had to travel from out of state. We love to eat and drink, and the kitchen, dining room,and family room were perfect for every type of meal, not to mention the quaint backyard that was a perfect setting when being inside required an alternative. In addition to there seemed to be a room for everyone, whether you wanted to watch TV or play board games, Walking around the area, especially to the water, was relaxing because of the limited vehicle traffic. Having one of the owners literally 100 yards away was also a comforting aspect and the nearby attractions, including the Thimble Island cruise and the beautiful Branford Green were icing on the cake. This is definitely a recommended gathering spot for families that need a larger accommodation.

What a lovely home. It had everything you could possibly want and more. The owners are the BEST. The house is perfect. Views were spectacular. The neighbors were soooooo friendly.
I rented for my son's graduation from Yale and it was the best time ever.
I will be back again.
Thank you to the King family.
