Wonderful family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home for six wonderful days and nights. The owner was there to great us and give us a quick tour when we arrived. The property has everything you could possibly need. It is extremely comfortable and clean with plenty of rooms for privacy or togetherness. The neighborhood is wonderful and friendly. We meet many neighbors and felt very welcomed! You can not go wrong staying here.

Beautiful 9-days in lovely Branford, CT

  • 5 of 5

We had a very lovely (9 day) stay, at this rental. The owner was very accomodating and pleasant to work with. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the owner, who gave us a tour of the house, pointing out areas of interest, such as where items were located, appliances, electrical panel..etc! The rooms where very spacious and well equipped with everything we needed, sheets, towels, cleaning supplies, paper towels and more. Being that we were there in Sept, the weather was perfect. No big need for air conditioning, but upper rooms did have window units which were sufficient for a good night's sleep. Plenty of fans and opened windows supplied a nice breeze throughout the house. Everyone enjoyed the use of plenty of televisions throughout and use of internet service, made it easy to conduct business. The kids enjoyed trying to net crabs, that swam in the backyard (bay). Across the street was the private beach, to swim. We even took advantage of using the beach club rights down the street. Make sure to bring your camera because you will want to take lots of photos. We took the opportunity to enjoy eating clams and oysters, which were supplied right off the owner's boat. What a huge hit. Many nights we sat around the campfire outside, at night and ate them, along with hot dogs, burgers and chicken, which we grilled from their gas grill they supplied. We even saved room for s'mores. This was truly a very memorable vacation for us, our children and grandchildren. We will definitely be coming back.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Rented this house when I came home for my daughter wedding. Huge house with plenty of room to spare for a family get together. Ideal location on water without the traffic you get when you stay in the Westbrook area and just as nice. Fantastic restaurants just a mile down the road. Clean and well furnished just across the road from the beach and views. Would highly recommend, no disappointments at all.

Fantastic Rental

  • 5 of 5

My parents, in-laws, and grandmother came for my husband's graduation weekend. They loved the house! It was extremely clean and very comfortable. They had everything they needed. In addition to the cleanliness of the home, Nora and her mother and grandmother were extremely flexible and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend renting this home.

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

  • 5 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 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!!!
