1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
Branford, Connecticut
This newly renovated one bedroom cottage is set in the midst of other cottages. With a private back garden, patio, beautiful flowers, and steps from a private neighborhood beach , the cottage is clean, and comfortable. For cool nights there is a gas fire, and an air conditioner in the bedroom ensures restful sleeping. This is a very quiet neighborhood, with friendly neighbors and except for weekends, you may have the beach to yourselves.

We rent by the week beginning Saturday at 2 pm.

Thank you Ron and Bernie for making our vacation an excellent one. The rental house was compact, but with everything we needed, at hand. At the end of our vacation we didn't want to leave! We very much loved having a drink with both of you and sharing our very similar lives.

Management response:

We enjoyed meeting you both and appreciate how clean you left our cottage. Please come again.

The cottage was everything we expected and more!! Ron and Bernie were the friendliest of people and we could tell that they wanted our vacation to be the best. They are very knowledgeable of the area and even have a binder full of vacation ideas. Best vacation ever! We highly recommend Ennis Cottage for a great vacation retreat.

Management response:

If your idea of a perfect vacation is sitting watching the sunrise with a cup of coffee or watching the sunset with a bottle of wine on the beach... This is for you.. The cottage was roomy,clean and very efficient ..One week was not enough time to do everything you wanted to do..From shopping ,sight-seeing ,antique shopping ..So much to...

Management response:

Wow Stephen, Thank you for a wonderful review. I'm sorry we didn't get to meet you in person but hopefully we will be around when you return so you can have a bottle of wine on our roof deck and watch the sunset from there. Ron
