November 2017 serenity. After a girls getaway/long weekend at Christoph and Darren's, we were all so sad to go home to our boring showers. If you never thought you had a reason to visit Old Lyme, now you do. Thanks, C&D for sharing your beautiful world with the Traveling Yoga Pants of the Bravo Sisterhood! We can't wait to go back.

We rented this house as part of my sons wedding this October. The groomsmen all stayed here and we were very impressed with the stylish amenities and overall beauty of the surroundings

This house is beautiful. It is well-appointed with a very cool interior, comfortable beds , great showers, well-stocked kitchen, just to name a few things that stood out to us. Christoph is a gracious host, attentive, responsive - great communication throughout. Fresh Calla Lilies were on the table - really nice touch. The location is great. My cousins and I loved our stay. We will all return there next time we visit.

We had such a great time at this magical home- it felt like you were living among the trees in a truly fantastically designed home. So much thought has been put into every detail. And the added little amenities made this so much more luxe. All you need to bring is yourself to enjoy this house. We can't wait to go back when we have the chance!

We had an amazing stay in Christoph's house. The home is immaculate, spacious and beautifully decorated. We especially loved our meals in the breakfast nook which feels like you are sitting in a tree house. The house has very large bedrooms and generous living space to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the gorgeous surroundings.

We stayed for just four nights for a brief-but-relaxing family vacation with our three young adult kids and everyone loved it; it was ideal. The home is gorgeous, decorated in a warm but sleek modern style, well-equipped in every way... and in a truly beautiful setting. The layout of the house is both open and has several great niches set off by themselves, so good for both privacy and being all together. Chris was very helpful and accomodating. Some of his suggestions for kayaking and a terrific vineyard-set restaurant were great added components to a memorable getaway. We appreciated being both in a natural private setting but close to restaurants and beaches and lakes and more. A very special experience and we would love to return if the occasion presents itself.

Am a digital marketing professional working in the hospitality industry and live in New York City.
We recently purchased a second home in the wonderful city of Old Lyme and we are looking for cool people that are interested in renting the modern yet luxurious house, built in 1977.
Please drop me a note if you have any questions whether that be on the house or the lovely area of coastal Connecticut.
