"Out stay with Yvette was wonderful, she was so happy to accommodate all our last minute requests and that helped us tremendously. We ended up having a fantastic stay, albeit a short one but comfortable nonetheless. I would recommend her in a heart beat."

Sara · New Haven, CT October 2016

"My friends and I had a fantastic fall retreat to this home and had a fantastic stay. The home is a very cozy in a quiet neighborhood. The home is small and quaint, but we really enjoyed making use of the back deck and large yard. Everything in the home was clean and comfortable. Yvette was very quick in responding to my request and was easy to get ahold of to get instructions for getting into the house. Overall, it was a very enjoyable and smooth stay."

Lena · Seattle, WA February 2016

"Yvette was very kind, considerate, and quick to respond. I would stay here again, and recommend her to anyone."

Lucy · Saint Louis, MO July 2016

"A truly beautiful house. Would recommend for any getaway with a gang of friends who love to cook together and hang out in a charming space."

"The Purple Button Factory has a warm and cozy vibe- a great place to stay for a weekend getaway with a group of friends or family members. There's a lot of natural light and seating outside. It's located minutes away from downtown Guilford and is a quick 5-10 minute drive from the beach. Yvette was a kind and friendly host. While we enjoyed our stay overall, we had some difficulties with the house. It's an old house, and we had trouble with the electricity going out roughly 4 times during our stay, which meant we had to re-set the fuse box each time. The air conditioning units would also turn off on their own, but this was fixed with re-setting the fuse box. Despite the mishaps, Yvette's place was clean and inviting, and we had a positive experience."

Nancy · Otisville, NY June 2016

"My husband and I stayed at the Purple Button Factory in guilford, CT. We stayed June 19th thru June 26st 2016, for a family function in Branford CT; which was only about 20 minutes away. When we arrived, no one was there to meet us or answer any questions. I called Yvette to let her know we arrived. Yvette instructed us on how to get into the house, which was successful! The house is spacious and has that old house charm, the pictures that are on the Airbnb listing was what we expected when we arrived. Big yard, big back deck, and a fire pit in the back yard which we used a couple of times during the week, it was a nice treat. The kitchen if fully functional, however, I did bring some kitchen must haves from home which I was I glad I did! The green is around the corner, nice shops, etc. The public beach is about 10 minutes away! Guilford is a lovely community. :)"
