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.

THE HOUSE IS AVAILABLE FOR AN ACADEMIC GUEST IN THE FALL OF 2016 - SPRING OF 2017 ~ INQUIRIES WELCOME !

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Whenever I purchase anything online, I am always nervous... And usually photos of houses are a lot better than the actual house. In this case though, it was quite the opposite! We were pleasantly surprised to find new carpets and freshly painted walls. And a brand new TV-not that we watched much of it but you get the point...The house is exactly as described, a classic older beach house, if you are looking for new and modern this isn't it. But we absolutely loved every minute of it! I took the bedroom facing the ocean and went to sleep every night listening to the waves. This house has everything you can think of, washer, dryer, pots, pans, dishes, etc. The decorations were adorable. Pet friendly too. We didn't go out much just stayed home and barbecued but it was so much fun. And I cant say enough about Cheryl and her husband Kim who went out of their way to make sure our stay was amazing. We are already planning our trip for next year!

Christmas Cottage at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

For our first time ever, we (1) rented a vacation home and (2) did not stay with family on Christmas Eve. We stumbled on this "cottage" just by luck. What a wonderful find!! We loved the house and it suited our needs perfectly. It was terrific being right on the beach. And we had ample space indoors and out to invite family to celebrate the holiday with us. Cheryl was welcoming and helpful -- very easy to work with.

We were hoping to make this house a new tradition -- sadly not available for Christmas 2014. But, our intro to Homeaway has enabled us to find another nearby.

Owner's Response: Renting an entire home for any holiday or occasion so that you can be close to and share that Holiday with your family is a wonderful thing. Families rent our properties while attending Graduations, Weddings, Funerals ~ any reason that a family gets together can be made significantly better with a house! The most rewarding thing a family can do is BE TOGETHER. This is often VERY difficult as we grow older. Houses provide an opportunity for closeness that can not be achieved in a hotel. Thank you for your kind words Sandra, I wish I had a property open for you for 2014. I am so happy that you found another place! HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE !!!!!!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 3 nights and four days, wish it could have been longer. This was the first time renting on the CT shore and it won't be the last. It proved to be an easy commute for our trip from MA and our adult children coming up from NYC on the Metro North wish stopped in the center of Milford about8 minutes away. The pretty town center is adorable with lots of choices for eating, walking and browsing. We particularly liked the SBC brewery beer selection and food was fantastic. Also ate at the Seven Seas restaurant, good food, tourists and town folk alike. Cheryl and Kim were so hospitable, felt like we were old friends as soon as we met them. The beach house was perfect, roomy, spotless, had all the things we needed for cooking as well as linens. The covered porch and extended deck sits right on the water at high tide giving the feeling of being on a cruise ship. Friendly neighbors and community. Amazing sunsets, lots of walking and relaxing. The interior of the house it had comfy beds and furniture as well as a casual feel.

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 ~
