Overview

About the property

3BR, 2 BA and outdoor shower. Sleeps 8 max ~ House 2- 1 BR 2 Queen Beds

A spectacular direct waterfront home, on a private beach. Renovated extensively in 2006 ~ this house provides our Guests with uncompromised views of Long Island Sound looking both East & West

This charming beach house has ALL the modern conveniences of this century! Wake to the sounds of winds and surf. You will hear the Sea Gulls yapping for their breakfast ! See glorious Sunrises and Sunsets . The only way that you would get closer to the water is to be on a boat!!!

Relax and dine on your covered porch. The home is naturally cooled by sea breezes or there is air conditioning, if you prefer.

ALL three bedrooms in this beach house are waterside . As you fall asleep or wake you will hear the mixture of the wind and the waves. ALL bedrooms have their own air-conditioning units so each Guest may regulate the best temperature for themselves while sleeping or napping. Bedroom one features a King size bed. Bedroom two has a double bed and two twin beds, which are a trundle bed. This room features the circular waterfront balcony/deck. A wonderful place for that first cup of morning coffee. Bedroom number three has a Queen bed.

There are two full bathrooms and a outdoor shower. The house also has a washer and dryer ~ no longer considered a luxury item in a beach house.

The house is well proportioned to enjoy in and outdoor waterfront living. The open floor plan provides water views from all rooms. Matter of fact, the only rooms in this home which are not facing the beach are the bathrooms!

BOTH the house and Guest cottage have Rinnai ~ hot water on demand, water heaters so you NEVER run out of hot water.

The driveway provides parking for 4/6 cars depending on how careful you park. But NO WORRIES ~ there is a public parking area across the street for additional guest parking.

The Guest cottage, which is # 331732, on Home Away and VRBO is included with the rental of this house in the Summer months. The Guest cottage has one large bedroom w/ two queen beds, and two big closets. It has an open living area which is both kitchen and living room. It has a newly updated private bathroom ~ The cottage is a completely self contained small home. It also has a washer and dryer.

This safe neighborhood is enjoyed by many who run and walk the streets for enjoyment and exercise. With street lights glowing for night time activities you are not limited by light. I live in this very same Bay ~ I can attest to the safety!

Kayaks: For your entertainment and joy we have provided this home with two Kayaks with paddles. On a sunny, hot day this is a wonderful way to enjoy the water, the weather and explore the shoreline. We provide life jackets for each Kayak. These should be worn at all times.

Paddle Boards: For the 2017 Season we have purchased two paddle boards for our Guests . Life jackets need to be worn for all water activities.

Many of our Guests salt water fish and clam while they are on Holiday here in Milford.

Customer Service: It is our goal to provide to all of our customers a wonderful vacation experience. We do our best to assure that this house is spotless and that the property is kept in tip top shape with beautiful flowers.

If any of our guests are having a gathering of any sort we will assist you in locating any items which you need for the event. We have the ability to pay close attention to detail because we live in the same Bay about 25 houses down. This is also why we know the area well and feel safe with our neighborhood.

You'll want for nothing in this charming beach front home! Watch the sunsets and rise right on the beach front. House is fully stocked and comfortable! Cheryl, the manager, is the BEST!! I will always go out of my way to rent one of Cheryl's properties. She treats her guests perfectly and ensures you have everything you could need for a perfect beach front vacation!

Peaceful Beachfront Home

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my mom's birthday at this fully equipped waterfront home. I could not have asked for anything more. From sunrises to sunsets, on this wraparound porch, we enjoyed the tranquility of this beautiful beach. This home had everything you could possibly think of. Upon arriving at to this spotless home, we knew we will be renting this home again (already looking at dates for next year). Wonderful week away with my kids, grandson and parents , the memories were priceless. Cheryl is so accommodating, for any issue if it pops up, always available by cell. We miss you, the lovely home & views alr ad!!

Little Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our stay in the house and cottage! It was clean and comfortable. You get the feeling of being on a cruise ship when you look out from the kitchen to the beach...all you see is blue sky and water. All stress melts away here. The bedroom directly facing the beach was so relaxing with the sound of gentle waves at night and having the kayaks were great for early morning rides as the sun came up. Everything you need is right there and if there is something you want stores and restaurants are nearby. It's the perfect place for a perfect vacation. Can't wait to go back!

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and myself along with our dogs stayed for 13 weeks in this comfy home. Cheryl was an absolute pleasure to work with. She provides excellent service and her home was very well put together. The kitchen is thoroughly stocked with everything you may need to cook with along with many spices. The ocean view is perfect. We stayed during the colder months but still enjoyed the ocean. Loved watching the tide come in and go out. Neighbors are friendly and were not loud. We worked nights and had no problems sleeping during the day. Cheryl has provided internet and TV in every room. The beds are comfy. This house is in a great location and Milford is a great little town to visit. Thank you again, Cheryl for making our stay so pleasant.

We just got back from a 1 week stay at this lovely beachfront home. The purpose of our visit was to reconnect with our family, but we wanted a place that would feel like we were on vacay. This place was perfect!! Very well appointed, comfortable and clean. The kitchen has everything you could want to make a nice meal. The beds are comfy. You can see the ocean, and hear it, from every room! Watching the tide go in and out was beautiful. It's a constantly changing vista. Long walks on the beach yielded some lovely sea glass. LG capacity where and dryer means you can pack less. Cheryl is an excellent manager, and coming from me, that should mean a lot, as I worked for 10 years in FL as a vacation rental agent. Her communication is great, and every detail was looked after, perfectly. We would not hesitate to rent one of her properties again. Hope to return soon.

This historic town features New England at its best! Going into the center of town, the Green is one of the largest in New England. The town center also has a very busy Harbor. The town center has shops, boutiques and many, many restaurants around and near the beautiful town green. With nature centers and historic landmarks, Milford is a town that has it all! For the ladies a first rate, newly renovated (03/06) indoor mall. It features many of the larger retail stores we know, as well as a movie theatre ( 14 ) , a great place for a rainy day.!! Milford rocks! The nightlife and resturants are alive with action, many clubs downtown are walking distance to each other. The town of Milford offers small town charm with city amenties. Milford's train station has great schedules for those who wish to visit New York City for work or play. Train travel to New York is 1 1/2 hrs. This home is nearby to New Haven (15min), which has many theatres, resturants, night clubs and summer concerts on the town green. Nearby New Haven is home to Yale University, The Peabody Museum, The British Arts Museum so many galleries and shops, too numerous to mention. Mystic Seaport, Foxwood and Mohegan Sun casino are close.

Other Activities: Check the Milford Chamber website for upcoming events in town

Golf: There are many public, first rate places to play golf in and around Milford, Ct. I would suggest in peak playing season that you go onto the internet and view the possibilities.

We also have a Costco, Whole Foods and Trader Joe's ~ ALL within a 1/2 mile of each other .
