About Mike Webb

Owner grew up in CT and spent his summers in Hotchkiss Grove where his parents still live two streets over. They are available to answer questions, provide dining suggestions, etc.

Mike Webb purchased this house in 2013

Why Mike Webb chose Pine Orchard

It's a nice looking, cute, highly functional property that is very close to the beach. The Bay Point is a 2 minute walk away and has a large grassy area for kids to play. Parents can sit on the benches and enjoy the sun rise or set. Hotchkiss Grove is a private community and the people are wonderful.

What makes this house unique

Quiet location yet close to the beach. Front deck is a nice place to sit in the AM or evening. Patio in back is a great place to entertain. There's plenty of space and beds to accommodate two families. This is a great location that is close to the Thimble Islands, or you can even make a day trip to the casinos.

Great summertime vacation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in this beautiful vacation home in Branford. The house was well equipped for our family of four. Beds were super comfortable and house well maintained. Plenty of space both indoors and out. This quaint beach community is a gem and the private beach area very accessible, tranquil and picturesque. We took advantage of the kayaks and paddle board throughout our week and could have explored even more on the water if we had more time. I was pleasantly surprised at how clean the water was and refreshing to swim in early summer! We have family in the same neighborhood and I can see why folks would want to live in Branford. Excellent restaurants and cute town within a mile or two. Mike couldn't have been more accessible and responsive to our inquiries and needs. We look forward to a return visit!

Perfect Home for Families Celebrating Yale Graduation.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely home for our daughter's Yale graduation. It was absolutely perfect. The location is fantastic (right on the water and a lovely little park in Branford) for sports (kayaking, softball etc) but also very close and convenient for the Yale commencement activities. We had 14 family members and 5 stayed in the house (could accommodate more) and the rest stayed in local motels in Branford. A perfect home. Great beds, bedding, kitchen...we even had a wonderful catering company Small Kitchen, Big Taste out of New Haven come in and prepare our graduation dinner (to avoid the chase that most likely exited in New Haven on that night). Highly recommend.

Loved our stay here!

  • 5 of 5

We are a NYC family of 4 (children ages 10 and 7) who are building a house in the area. Our home was not ready for occupancy this summer so we rented this lovely home. The owners could not have been more accommodating of our needs! The house was perfectly equipped for a young family with games, kayaks, kitchen needs and more. No need to bring anything other than clothes! We loved the Hotchkiss Grove community and spent many days at the private beach and point. The owners have done a great job of updating the kitchen and baths. I would recommend this home to a wide variety of renters from young families to empty nesters.
