Everything was great and house is very spacious!
Great stay at 5 Joray Rd.
Nice, clean house, conveniently located. Kids loved the bedroom upstairs. Great bedding. Gary is a cool guy.
Beautiful area, roomy house
This CT home was a peaceful, relaxing stay. There are several bedrooms and the location is beautiful. Gary the owner was responsive and kind. The internet worked well. We enjoyed ourselves and will be back.
Thanks for the review, let's do it again. You left the house in perfect condition, Gary
Spacious home on beautiful property.
We were four female friends attending a prep school reunion so we did not spend much time at the house. The house is spacious, reminiscent of the 1960s. This property provided what we needed: comfortable beds, 2 bathrooms, linens, towels, a well-equipped kitchen where we could prepare breakfast. The upstairs bed room would be ideal for kids, the drawback for us is that it has to be accessed through one of the bedrooms and up the stairs. We opted instead to use the futon in the sun room,which was comfortable. We enjoyed our stay.
Lynn and other guests were great. They loved the surrounding property and left the home in excellent shape . Hope to see them another time . Gary
Everything was excellent, except WiFi problems
Great bunch of Guys, They enjoyed the vast properties and views. It would be nice to see them again, thanks again, Gary
Used to be nicer
The house needs to be cleaned , mold in shower, dead bugs and cobwebs along with a science project growing in the coffee pot
Couldn't wait to go home to shower !!
And the house smells of mothballs !
