My family (5 adults and 2 kids) stayed at Gael's lovely home in October. We were in the area for a family event and his home was a great base for our stay. The house is very well appointed and organized. Beds were comfortable and kids loved all the toys and outdoor space. I appreciated tat Gael let us use the pool past his normal closing date and was alway quick to respond to our questions. I would definitely recommend for travelling families looking for a comfortable place away from home.

Gael's house is comfortable and the most family-friendly Airbnb house we've stayed at so far; baby crib and portable baby bed available for use, corner guards around the ping pong table, pool floaties, gate around the pool, and a projection screen in the basement along with a lovely closet full of children's toys. My toddler son had a ton of fun the entire stay. I really liked the nicely renovated kitchen and en suite bathroom in the master bedroom. The neighborhood is beautiful and tranquil with the majority of the restaurants and shops a 15-min drive away. Pretty secluded but we liked the house so much we didn't want to venture out anyway. Besides, there is a deli and the Spinning Wheel restaurant two miles away if we wanted to grab a quick bite to eat. Nice little touches like a bottle of wine at check in and labels on the kitchen shelves and cabinets to help you find what you need contributed to a wonderful and relaxing stay. Gael is a great host, easy to reach if I had any questions, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend his house to anyone.

The home is well maintained and offers everything you would need, particularly if you are traveling with small children (ie toys, childrens books, pool floats/toys, riding toys, swing set, etc). The home is also located on a quiet street, perfect for young bike riders, offering a peaceful escape from the city. Gael was excellent at communicating with us regarding our stay and everything in the house was very organized and/or labeled clearly with instructions so we quickly felt comfortable in his home. We will definitely consider staying here again if we have the opportunity.

This house is perfect for a family or small family gathering. We're familiar with the area and have family near by, so it became central base for a week of cookouts, swimming, and backyard play. The house is a perfect size for 8 people to stay, and with a yard ideal for badminton, croquet, frisbee - you name it - afternoons with friends was easily doable. The pool and grill were perfect outdoor attractions, and the kitchen was great for cooking large meals. The added bonus of a ping pong table and use of bikes and scooters just rounded out a wonderful stay. Redding is a bucolic, CT town, but also has good dining out options and is 20 mins. or closer to Bethel and Danbury for even more choices and shopping - and easy access to NYC if you really need a fix of the City. For us, the house was exactly what we wanted and Gael made it really easy to have a wonderful, memorable stay. We would definitely book this place again.

Very family friendly on a quiet block. Be sure to check out Topstone Park as well as the hiking/mountain biking at Huntington State Park.

Beautiful home with pool and children's toys/activities in a county setting. The kitchen was gorgeous and well outfitted. We spent an amazing and relaxing week here!
