Fabulous Rental House

  • 5 of 5

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:)!

Beach house

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a month. It was wonderful. Very close to the beach in a great neighborhood.

Plenty of room for my family and dog! The beach was perfect, warm clear water. The children had room to play outside, plenty of parking. The home is old but well kept. It was the best rental I have ever had. The family went into New York City by train, very convenient. Hope to rent again next year. Thank you Brad.

2nd Annual Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying in this beach house and once again had the best family stay-cation! We had more than enough room for the 6 adults\4 children for our 2 week stay. The beach is definately the best in CT and having it right across the street is why we love coming to this beach house and hope that the home will be available next year :)

Beautiful even in December!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house to host a family reunion around Christmas. Two families with toddlers fit in the house with room to spare! The house is child friendly with a little childproofing for the younger crowd upon arrival. School aged or older will love the games and books on site! The house is very clean and perfectly oriented for socializing, with a very large modern kitchen. There is a beautiful deck we would have enjoyed if the weather were just a little warmer. The yard is small but the house is a very short walk to the beach (2 minutes) which I'm sure is even better during CT beach months. There is a wood burning stove in the room adjacent to the kitchen (which we didn't use because of the toddlers) but was a great place to kick back and relax even without a fire. The wood stove area takes the place of the dining room which was a minor inconvenience. The living room was very comfy and had plenty of seating for our two families plus a guest or two. The bedrooms were larger than expected and nicely decorated, each with their own color scheme and beautiful quilts. The master bedroom is awesome, it's own little haven, so if you're booking with a group of friends, be sure to put your dibs in early. The house is close to the merrit parkway and 95 (within 5 minutes of a main road) situated among other beautiful beach houses. The owner consistently communicated with us making our rental experience a pleasant one. Please note the rental amount listed on homeaway is incorrect, please contact the owner for the current rental price. We would definitely rent this house again and would highly recommend it to others without hesitation.
