We rented this house in August for a family reunion/vacation. The house was much nicer than in the pictures. We were all thrilled with the size of the rooms, the excellent furniture and decorations, the gourmet kitchen and the proximity to the beach. The kids loved playing in the yard under the huge tree then running to the beach which was only a 2 minute walk. I grew up on the Connecticut shore and NEVER considered vacationing on the beach. I had no idea what a beautiful shoreline Milford had and the lovely homes lining the boardwalk. The kids spent hours playing on the jetty seaching for crabs and building sand castles. It was truly a vacation to remember. I would HIGHLY recommend this house and the person who owns it. The only part we would have enjoyed more is that Laurel Beach Association has a beautiful old 'club house' with a bowling alley and games inside which was locked at all times. That would have put the vacation over the top if the kids could have played there on the rainy days:)!
