A CLASSIC DIRECT WATERFRONT HOUSE

Milford House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom

A classic 1920's beach house, ready for YOUR family and friends!

I call this my CLASSIC because many Guests have told me it reminds them of their Grandparents beach house. This beach house has had few changes since first built. It has an open floor plan which then takes you out to the beautiful covered porch. It was well designed to enjoy OUTDOOR living.

Located in a private protected Tidal Bay, it is a paradise away from our real lives. Since it is a private Tidal Bay there are NOT lots of people, even on the most beautiful of days! The only people on this waterfront are Owners of property or their Guests.

This Tidal Bay is a reasonably protected area so it is good for young or small children. I use the word ' Tidal Bay' because the tide comes in and goes out every six hours of so. At low tide you can walk out 250 - 300 feet and you will find your feet on very soft sand bars. Children LOVE the sand bars for playing ball or Frisbee! We do not have swelling tides or under currents that will knock a small child or their feet. That happens only when we have a storm ~ then everything can become a different game.

The house is perched close to the waterfront. You can always hear the gentle sounds of the water AND the Sea Gulls, especially in the morning when they are hungry ! My neighbor always says 'The only way we can be closer to the water, is to be on a boat!'

The first living level has a very open floor plan which allows greater flexibility in entertaining and enjoying the beach. Adding to this concept of open entertaining is the waterfront covered porch. We keep lots of furniture on this porch for our Guests to use and enjoy. The galley style kitchen provides the cook with all the items needed to put together a great meal, except, a dishwasher. On the first floor there is also a laundry area off the kitchen as well as a half bathroom.

The house features four decent size bedrooms. The bedrooms are set up the following way: Bedroom 1 is a direct waterfront with a sliding glass door leading to a wonderful deck, and a Queen size bed. This is a fairly large bedroom. Bedroom 2 has Twin bunk beds (2). Bedrooms 3 and 4 both have double beds.

The house has a street side lawn and a private driveway for parking. This is one of the few waterfront homes that a child can collect shells on your private beach or play in the grass. Private driveway is for 6 cars

The house has BOTH a gas and charcoal Grill available for your use.

The house also has an out door shower. Very handy when you are SANDY ! How poetic!

THE TOWN AND AREA: THIS BEACH HOUSE IS LOCATED IN AN AREA THAT HAS A GOOD SMALLER FULL SERVICE GROCERY STORE, called ADAMS AND TWO LIQUOR STORES, one that delivers !! MILFORD HAS A WHOLE FOODS, COSTCO AND TRADER JOES. THE TOWN OF MILFORD HAS A GREAT DEAL TO OFFER AS A VACATION DESTINATION.

IN ONE WORD.....FABULOUS!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of six rented this home and we had a FABULOUS time...the house was cozy and beachy and we loved everything about it!

It definitely a Classic Beach House as Cheryl described,and it was clean and neat and had all of the amenities necessary for a successful vacation away.

The bedrooms and common area were spacious, and the layout was terrific on the main level as it led right out to the covered porch which overlooks the beach. There was plenty of room for three generations, and everyone was able to have their own space and privacy when needed.

We spent most of our time our on the porch when we weren't out walking the beach, swimming, or enjoying the sand bars! And our children, ages 6 and 8, had endless fun from morning until night...they were never bored!!

Thank you, Cheryl, for sharing yet another fabulous property with us! We will definitely rent this property or another one of your properties in the upcoming season.

Cheers~

Peaceful Beach Get Away

  • 4 of 5
I rented this Beach House with a group of friends, and we had a relaxing, fun getaway. The house is exactly as pictured. The house as noted in the profile, is an older Beach House...but was spotless, and had everything that you could think of for a trip away. The house was well equipped with toiletries, cleaning products, paper goods, etc. Cheryl was SO accomadting and friendly. Anything that was needed, was immediately addressed. We will DEFINITELY rent this home or one of Cheryl's other homes for another perfect getaway. The view from the back porch is amazing. We all spent most of our time out there, fishing from the deck, or walking the pretty beach. Thank you for a wonderful mini vacation...."just what the doctor ordered!"

Owner's Response: Dear Sharon, I am so happy that you and your friends enjoyed My Classic Beach house!
As we discussed when you chose the house, it shares the same beautiful water front, in a private bay ~ as my other renovated homes. I know you also enjoyed the privacy and solitude that a Bay, like this provides! Glad the Doctors orders were carried out !! Looking forward to seeing you at another time. Best ! Cher

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words Melanie ! I am so glad that you enjoyed the beach house. As I have said to many Guests, it is the proximity of the water that makes the experience amazing and allows you to sleep "like a baby".

Thank you too for the treasures of jewelry that you made for me! I love them! You are very creative and talented. It was great meeting you and your Husband ~

Overpriced and in need of some work

  • 3 of 5
The very best feature about this house is the location which is directly on the beach. The front porch is where we spent the majority of our time and we loved it. Upon arrival, we also discovered that there were several air conditioner units in the house which we were very appreciative of.
However, the house is in great need of some TLC and some upgrades. We arrived right after a storm and the house had been opened up and everything was wet. The carpets, furniture and the master bed linens and mattress were all soaked. We were not able to find a phone number to call anyone for help so we needed to spend quite a while stripping beds and doing laundry and drying off the furniture as best we could.
Also we were traveling with a person who is handicapped and did not realize that the step spoken of in the details which we thought was to enter the house was actually a deep step between the kitchen and living room area and the downstairs bathroom was off the kitchen and required another step back up to enter. So each time that bathroom (which was very small and not adequate for some people who are handicapped) was used it required a step down and then making a right turn and going back up a step. This could be a difficulty for the elderly and some handicapped people. I mention this because if we had this information beforehand we would have needed to choose a different house. Also the window areas need to be cleaned and need some new treatments so that neighboring houses (which are very close together) cannot see into the bedrooms. . There were also openings between the air conditioner units and the windows in some rooms.
And we did not notice this aspect when we were searching for a place to rent but it became important when we were there so I want you to know that there is no dish washer. We needed to spend a lot of time doing dishes as we cooked in all week.

But I do want to say that our experience with Cheryl was very positive. She was very helpful and personally accommodating to our requests. I am doing this review because times are difficult these days and we felt that the price was just too steep for what this property actually offered.

Owner's Response: Dear Debbie

Thank you for your well written review of Johns's beach house. I always hope that when I write the advertisement for each of the houses that I manage, I am accurate in my description. I think the very best point you make here is that the potential guest should read and ask the owner or manager questions about the house. Ask questions about those things that are important to you.

Once I popped by the next day, I pointed out my property book of notes, house details and local attractions. I think I must put a single sheet of information on every Fridge, basic info, at least. I know myself, coming into a strange place and getting settled can often be a daunting task.

I did review my listing after I read your review and I hoped that when I wrote " classic 1920's Beach House" the reader would understand that this house is relatively unchanged since
the 1920's. The bathrooms are sparse and the sinks small ~ they remain unchanged since
the 20's. No, the kitchen does not have a dishwasher, but in the advertisement I DO NOT
say that it does. Many guests do not care that a beach house is not updated. AND if a guest wants a more modern house, this is not the one for them!

This house does need renovating but the owner likes it the way it is. As a result of the visits from Irene and now Sandy it will AGAIN be painted and newly carpeted. The Storm Hurricane Sandy caused havoc to the entire first floor, as did Irene. It will also have NEW furniture for the third year in a row, on the first floor. I had not yet had an opportunity to post new pictures for 2012 and another storm comes by!

You have made a very good point mentioning the storm and the wet bed linens etc. I do not stick to a strict check in policy and this is sometimes a problem. If you had checked in at 3:00 pm, when there was no rain in sight, this would not have happened. But if you recall, I left the house open for you to check in on your time frame and durning that time the rain came. I assumed you were already there and I never thought I had to go and close up the house because
of the storm. This has made me rethink my check in policy. Thank you.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It will be helpful to other potential guests!

Best!
Cheryl

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house so our family could all attend my sons'graduation at Yale. We all loved the house, it was a great place to gather at the end of a day, sitting out on the deck enjoying the sounds of the waves. The house was clean and Cheryl was very helpful in anything we needed. We were accidently locked out of the house one time and she came to the rescue! There is a very nice BBque pit and lots of seating area outside to enjoy family dinners and time together. We really enjoyed our stay and loved the house, and would definitely stay here again if the need ever arises. I do recommend having a car though, its not that near the train station for walking. We didn't try the buses. Just loved going to sleep at night listening to the waves outside!

Cheryl is incredible!!!!

  • 5 of 5
After some bad experiences on Craigslist buying sports tickets, I was very hesitant about booking a weekend trip with my girlfriend over a website. Cheryl spoke with me over the phone regarding the property, lease, and payment, and I quickly realized I would have no issues. My girlfriend was traveling from New York, and I was coming from Boston. The location was perfect! Cheryl continued to impress throughout the entire experience. I can't imagine finding someone more accomodating! I will certainly call Cheryl again next time I'm looking to escape the city for the weekend!
