About Anthony Malaro

I grew up in Branford, CT and met my wife, who is from CA, here as well. We both love Branford and it's quaint New England charm. Combined with the seaside beauty this town has to offer we jumped at the chance to buy this property. It was the 'ugly' house on the street when we acquired it in 2000. A very dated and structurally different ranch, my wife, who should have become an architect came up with a great design. By 2003 we transformed this ugly duckling into one of the most talked about homes on the street. Work has taken us to CA but we look forward to our trips back to CT to visit with family and friend and to stay in our lovely home on the east coast. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Anthony Malaro purchased this house in 2000

Why Anthony Malaro chose Branford

Branford is a wonderful New England town that has managed to attract some great restaurants, quality healthcare facilities and is convenient to almost everything while maintaining a quaint feel. Being right on the water is wonderful experience and each community within Branford has a feel of its own to appeal to everyone.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mr. Malaro,



We just filled out the VRBO survey, which did not include owner-specific feedback. However, I want you to know that we were so pleased with our rental for a number of reasons.



You were very helpful to talk to in advance an represented the property and the experience so well. I hope you felt that we were responsible guests.



I had invited all my close family from the west coast to my daughter’s wedding in New Haven, and there were 12 of us in all. In addition, we had family and friends over on Saturday night before the wedding. The deck and lawn were the outpost for the 30-somethings. They played some kind of death croquet with the set I brought while the older and younger folks shared time indoors. We all felt that it offered us such a unique opportunity to mingle over the 3 days that we would never have had otherwise.



On the value-added side, we had a few unexpected needs, like paper clips, rulers, and scissors that we did not expect to find in a rental but that you had stocked in drawers on the main level. The one bad surprise we had was that there was no hand soap or bath soap anywhere in the bathrooms or the supply closet. Not a problem of course since we were shopping on night 1, but I thought you should know.



We really enjoyed the walk to the beach and the note you left about the local area were helpful to us.



We would love to come back for a visit again sometime. We have a younger daughter who’s in a relationship. Who knows?

Wonderful.....the listing description was spot on. We were all very comfortable, amenities were perfect, the house was beautiful and well appointed. The property was immaculate and well maintained. Our property manager was very nice, helpful and was easy to reach - emails/phone calls were answered in a reasonable amount of time. We would definitely recommend this property to a friend or family and if we visit Branford, CT again we would definately rent this home. We loved going into the town and found many great restaurants and fun shops. The Big Y grocery store was fantastic as we were able to find everything we needed to stock the kitchen. This home and having a place where we could all stay together helped to make our daughters wedding that weekend all the more memorable. Thank you so very much.

Great 100th Birthday Party!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at the Pine Orchard House. We had 9 people staying at the house and celebrated the 100th birthday of my father in law with 19 people present. The house was so well suited for the large group and the various ages of the party attendees. The house was clean, spacious, and very comfortable. The large kitchen was perfect for our family. Tony responded to any question immediately. We would highly recommend renting this property.

SImply a great place to be in Connecticut!

  • 5 of 5

We went there for several days with family coming in from South America and Connecticut. And I wanted a house that was indicative of CT. We hit a home run. It was such a wonderful home. It was big enough for everyone to have their own space. But when we wanted to congregate, there were plenty of places to sit. It has a great flow to it. It does have some nice romantic features like a gas fire place in the bedroom and a sauna. But the best reason to be there is the outside landscaping that you can see from most of the house. We were there in March and it snowed. It was stunning. I see this is a popular house in the summer...and probably for good reason. But I can only comment on the winter experience. And we loved it. We had pizza in New Haven one night (a must for those visiting). And as always Pepe's was outstanding. And we cooked the other nights in the house. It was a well equipped kitchen as well. There was an issue that was resolved by the owners immediately. They are such nice people. They could not have been more attentive to our needs. I have used Homeaway several times now and this was my best experience. Not much more to say....other than we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you!

Warmth in a Winter Wonderland

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late Valentines' day after a long flight. Pulling up to the home it looked so inviting covered in snow with a large graceful covered porch. When you walk in there is an instant warmth from all the lovely wood . There is a sun room that looks out on to the large peaceful back yard and a central fire place where 8 of us gathered for dinner. The house is very clean and the neighborhood is very quiet and charming. Easy access to Yale. 1.5 hours into New York.

Perfect for an extended family get-together

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for Thanksgiving. It's beautifully laid out for a large group, with lots of floor space and no clutter. Everything looks as shown in the photos. We walked to the beach several times; the neighborhood is lovely.
