About Tina Magnuson
A seasoned TV professional, I spent 4 years living in the house while completing extensive renovations and landscaping. It was a true labor of love!
Tina Magnuson purchased this house in 2006
Why Tina Magnuson chose Milford
The area was once a holiday makers seaside destination complete with amusement park. Now it's being revitalized and art galleries are moving in to our little shopping district which survived Hurricane Sandy just fine! You'll find the coffee table book 'Sand in our Shoes' which chronicles the history of the area through photos and personal stories in the living room upon check in.
What makes this house unique
I treat my house like a B'n'B without the breakfast or a host. You'll find each room is extremely well appointed and comfortable with attention to details. It's not a bare bones rental. It's a real home full of my things for others to enjoy down to the collection of art books and 3D puzzles! I believe that details are important down to making sure planters of herbs are available for guests to use and enjoy!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Stayed in this home for a long memorial day weekend. Exactly as pictured, zero complaints. Tina was easy to coordinate with. The beds were very comfortable. Her housekeeper lives across the street, was very sweet, and met us with the keys on our arrival. Neighboors and locals were very friendly. Two minute walk to the beach. Multiple playgrounds within 5 minute walk we took our one year old to. Ice cream shop and place to get lobster rolls/chowder 3 minute walk away – delicious and convenient. Home was very clean. Has a BBQ grill in the back we used each day. A very nice weekend, we would recommend this home to others and stay again. Deposit was returned without any issue a week later.
