Fabulous beachfront location in unique private location. Feels

like a cape cod location but much closer to home!

Wonderful views, cute town. Very private compared to other beaches in Milford or other towns in Connecticut.

Not really the beach we expected

  • 2 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 24, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
The house is lovely and well equipped. The owner was easy to deal with and quite pleasant. The area is lovely and seculuded. Unfortunately the soft sand beach in front of the house turns to rocks by the water's edge and then mucky mud. It's really a marsh/swamp -- perfect for the bird sanctuary but not good for swimming or fun for kids. We're used the the ocean or the sound and waves for playing.

We were disappointed that the sliding doors off the kitchen were taped shut -- no breeze through the house so we had to run the AC all the time. There's no outdoor shower -- which wasn't promised so fair enougth but for a family, it's really a necessity.

If you are looking for quiet bird watching this is a lovely home but it's not the spot for a family beach vacation.
Owner's Response: So sorry to hear you did not enjoy the beach. It is true there are stones at the water's edge and we provide numerous pairs of beach shoes in various sizes for that purpose as well as a walking path. The stones are about the first ten feet until the sand bar....the fact that this is an enclosed sand bar area does mean there are not many waves, but it also means the water is at least 10 degrees warmer than any other area of the beach and without any undertow to deal with which can knock small children down . The calmness also provides nice water for kayaking , tubing and paddle boarding, and keeps boats and jet skis out. There are very few waves in the Long Island Sound. There are lots of interesting shells ...your children seemed to enjoy finding and collecting them as we had bucketfuls In the house after your visit! The photos on our website clearly show the tall grasses and calm waters.....a rare and unusual location on the marsh side.

Of the three sets of sliding doors across the back of the house only one set has tape across them as we had a small amount of water leakage after hurricane Sandy. We are replacing that one set soon ....these doors open straight onto the gas barbecue and we find them less usable because of that. We cannot imagine you did not open the other two adjacent sets of 8' wide doors...they were open when you arrived.

We have a hose setup outdoors for a shower which other families have said they enjoyed....but we agree a shower is needed and we are hoping to have it in place for 2014, after acquiring a building permit.

Everyone has a different idea of what a beach vacation entails.....the warm water and secluded nature of our beach has been a real positive for most families.

Peaceful and Stunning Bird Sanctuary

Wonderful setting for tranquil summer respite! Birds, Nature Walks, and Quiet Beach enjoyment! Probably not the right place for large families as this is the only rental property in the neighborhood but ideal for those looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of city life and looking for some quiet time. Views are exceptional!
Owner's Response: Yes we are the only rental in this unique waterfront peninsula. We are a very short walk to the CT Coastal Audubon Society and their many interesting programs including a very special children's day camp experience. I am glad you enjoyed your stay.

Perfect Beach House!

Our three generations had an amazing time at Toes in the Sand. It was the perfect location to relax and reconnect with each other. Some of the highlights were the high tides and low tides with the plentiful sea creatures for the kids to find, such as horseshoe crabs, tiny crabs, fish, and even a jellyfish. The kitchen was super convenient for cooking, and the bedrooms were spacious and tastefully decorated. The attached "apartment" worked great for the three oldest grandchildren, keeping their noise and dirty clothes contained, and they had their own bathroom. :) The upstairs office became the music room, as Grandma, Grandpa, granddaughter, and grandson played quartets with their viola, violin, bassoon, and clarinet.

The two-person sea kayak was much loved by everyone, giving us a unique opportunity to explore the area by water, and it was especially wonderful for giving Mom some much appreciated time alone with her teenaged son.

Bicycling to Walnut Beach Creamery became a favorite activity, and we all enjoyed the one of a kind flavors.

An unbelievable house in a grand location. Thanks, Rebecca, for a truly special vacation.
Owner's Response: Delighted you hadsucjha nice time....it has been delightful finding out how other people use and enjoy the property....please come back!

REAL CT Beach Life

The birds! The views! The sand! It still makes me happy to remember watching the sunset from the Master Bedroom as I cuddled my little ones to sleep. I loved witnessing the amazing transformation as the tides ebbed and flowed from both sides of the house. The feeling of privacy, the treasures we found, the adventures racing the tide across the rock bridge...we can't wait to go back. We have never seen so many diverse and large shells!

Spring is a special time to be there and we love the dramatic weather! Enough room inside for 10 of us to eat at the table. Fun at the fire pit in the sand when the weather is nice.

Rebecca is lovely and readily available if you need her (and she is nice to inquisitive kids too). A pleasure all around!
Owner's Response: We are delighted you had such a good time.... We think the location is quite unique and we so pleased you loved it too! Come back next year...

Can't wait to get my Toes BACK in the sand!!

Toes in the sand is a wonderful beach home!! I love to cook so I enjoyed cooking on the outdoor BBQ which has amazing views at every angle. (We enjoyed it so much we never ending up going out to dinner) I was a little bummed to have the gas go out on the second night to then realize that there was a filled tank left in the garage to be used. When we refilled the other tank it was at the end of the street so it was quick and convenient. Look forward to coming back again next year!!!
