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! Located in a private protected Bay, it is a paradise away from our real lives. My neighbor always says 'The only way we can be closer, is to be on a boat!'

This beach house suffered from a visit by Hurricane Sandy BUT she is being cleaned, painted and newly carpeted downstairs. ~ upstairs carpets were replaced last year. This house has four decent size bedrooms. 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 wonderful waterfront covered porch. 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. 2nd floor full bathrmw/tub. The house has a street side lawn. 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 for 6 cars

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. MILFORD HAS A WHOLE FOODS, COSTCO AND TRADER JOES. THE TOWN OF MILFORD HAS A GREAT DEAL TO OFFER AS A VACATION DESTINATION.

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

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!

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!
Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. I love graduations at the Beach house ~ so much joy!
Thanks for your positive comments regarding the house. I really am happy that it all worked out so well for you and your family :)! AND I too think a car is needed ~

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!

Family Vacation

Wow...this was one of the most memorable vacations our family has ever had. The cottage is cozy and cute. The best part is the beach, which is right at your door step. There is no need to pack the kids up with all their sandy toys in your car, you just walk right out back door. The master suite is cute with a huge slider looking over the cove. Cheryl is wonderful and is there for any possible question or need. You can be sure we are already booking for next year! Thanks again Cheryl! Talk to you soon for 2011!
