Just finished a great weekend at this lovely home in Milford!
Our group of friends, 3 couples, 2 singles and our baby stayed for the weekend and had an amazing time. The kitchen had ample supplies (glasses, paper towels, cooking oil, etc) and the living room and dining area were cozy. We felt at home immediately.
My communications with the owner and her family before and after the stay were kind. They went out of their way to make sure everything was convenient for us. They were very flexible and obviously cared that we had a good time.
There was more than enough sleeping place: the 3 couples each had a bedroom, there was space for our daughter's travel crib in ours. One single slept on the very comfortable double air mattress in the laundry room which had a door that closed and the other single on the pull-out in the den area which is separated from the common area with a curtain. There is a futon in the common area as well.
The best part was probably the beach. Just 20 steps from the house it is sandy and great for swimming. Despite cloudy weather we swam all 3 days we were there. You can walk the beach down to the public beach and pier. It is easy to go back and forth from the house to the ocean and there's an outdoor shower for rinsing.
It is also an extremely walkable destination. We only had one car in our group, so we drove and then ferried the others from the nearby train station as they arrived on MetroNorth. Once at the house we were just a 5-10 minute walk from the Lazy Lobster with delicious lobster rolls, the local creamery with great ice cream as well as a deli/market and a liquor store. Hypothetically you could arrive by car and then never need your car again.
You can also walk down to the public beach which has a boardwalk through some wildlife preserve areas where you can view some large bird-life. Members of our group took some long runs through Milford which they really enjoyed. There's also a place to rent kayaks, bikes and scooters within a short walk.
We grilled and ate at the outside table one night and made pasta and ate at the large dining room table on the other. There's a huge TV which we didn't use as there's enough to do. It was more than we expected. A very convenient beach weekend from NYC in a comfortable home and a great family to do business with.
