Privat rom i bungalow med Brenda som vert

***COVID-19 UPDATE: THIS PROPERTY WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE***

Cozy cottage in a friendly neighborhood, two blocks from the beach and Long Island Sound. Private bedroom and bathroom with full amenities in my two bedroom/two bath home, perfect for a single person or couple. Easy access to downtown New Haven and Yale, just 15 minutes away.

Stedet
BEDROOM
Guest bedroom has a queen sleigh bed with Tempurpedic mattress, organic cotton sheets, and down duvet (hypoallergenic non-down alternative and wool blanket alternatives are available). Closet and dresser drawers have plenty of room for you to store your belongings. Full-length mirror inside closet door. Small speaker in the room for you to use with your iPhone or smartphone. TV available.


BATHROOM
Full bath with in-tub rain shower head is across the hall from the guest room (it's the main bathroom for the house, but you'll have it all to yourself during your stay). Everything you need is available: shampoo and conditioner, premium shower gel, bath salts, hair dryer, etc. And I have big thirsty cotton towels. If you forgot your toothbrush or need a curling iron, flat iron, razor, bandaids, or anything else, just ask!

MY HOME
My home was built in 1910 and gut renovated in 2013-14, so it has all the charm and character of an antique but all of the systems and amenities of a modern home: efficient heat and central air, on-demand hot water that never ends, dishwasher, washer and dryer, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, security alarm, and wine fridge.

The kitchen island has two wooden stools; it's my favorite place to perch with my morning coffee and watch the birds at the bird feeder in the backyard. There is also a dining room with table that seats up to 10 people that opens to the living room with wood burning fireplace.

There is plenty of space for relaxing or working in and around the house: there is seating with a table on the front porch, a deck with dining table and chairs, and a stone patio overlooking a spot of grassy yard and flowers. The shady backyard is fenced, giving you privacy from the neighbors.

WIFI & TV
High-speed wifi is accessible throughout my home. TV is available: you can watch the big TV in my study, or if you prefer I will move a smaller TV (21 in) with Roku to the guest bedroom.

Gjestetilgang
You have exclusive access to your guest room and bathroom, and share the kitchen, dining room, living room and outdoor spaces with me. My bedroom and bathroom, the basement, and attic are off limits. The garage is available for kayak and bicycle storage when arranged in advance.

Andre ting det er verdt å merke seg
DOG
I have a dog, a 13-year old miniature Schnauzer. He is friendly and except for an occasional bark he is quiet. The breed is considered hypoallergenic; he does not shed. He is used to staying out of your guest room-- though if you want some doggy love he is happy to oblige.

KAYAKS
In this area, Long Island Sound and the Thimble Islands are wonderful to explore by kayak, so bring your boats! There are two kayaks available at my home, a traditional one-person kayak and a one-person sit-on-top. I have two life jackets, but they are both in my size (XS)-- but I can borrow larger sizes from my neighbors, and just one two-wheeled cart for toting the boat(s) to the beach/launch (two blocks, three minutes away). Plenty of extra beach towels are stored in the hall linen closet.

BICYCLING
New England has great country roads for bicycle touring. There is space in my locked garage for you to store your bikes.

Beliggenhet

Branford, Connecticut, USA

This is a peaceful neighborhood of single-family homes on quiet streets. The neighbors are friendly and lots of them own dogs-- you'll see them walking in the area. It is a quick 3-5 minute walk to either of two local private beaches (accessible to members of the local neighborhood association and their guests). An excellent Italian restaurant and a separate pizza restaurant are one block away (the only commercial services within walking distance), and there are many shops and restaurants on Rt 1 (one mile away) and in the center of town on the town green (three miles). Downtown New Haven and the central Yale University campus are just 15 minutes away (during the busy seasons, ask me for directions that keep you off of the clogged highway).

Across the street are old trolley tracks that lead to the Shoreline Greenway Trail, a network of trails through marshes, forests, and town.

Originally from upstate NY and a life-long world traveler, I have lived in eight states, three countries, and visited 21 countries on five continents. One of my favorite places in the world is Cinqueterre; the next places I want to visit (that I haven't yet) are Rapa Nui and Antarctica. I enjoy visiting old friends, meeting new people, and experiencing new places. In 2006 I went back to school, got an MBA, and went to work in international development in west Africa. Following major challenges in my personal life, I've changed course again and am now launching a new web-based enterprise with a longtime friend and business partner. If you are also an entrepreneur, I'd love to swap stories! My dog is the center of my daily life. We go on walks together and snuggle in the evening. I used to be an avid reader, and I'm trying to get back to books and away from TV (though there sure is a lot of good TV these days). I am easygoing, neat, and considerate. I will respect your home and your personal space. I look forward to meeting you!

I enjoy meeting new people and welcome visitors from all over the world. I prefer to get to know my guests: we share a cup of coffee and breakfast in the morning, or a glass of wine in the evening, but if you want or need privacy to work, sleep, read-- or just because-- I will not disturb you. Before you arrive, let's get in touch to discuss your needs.
