Overview

About the property

5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms - direct waterfront - 2 bedrooms on the 1st floor

This loved waterfront home has everything you could want in a vacation get away. You can relax on the covered porch and watch the children at play ~ safe with your watchful eye.

We are a VERY direct waterfront house. Located on the Milford shore this property sits a bit higher than the rest giving you the best views possible, East and West meaning awesome Sunrises and Sunsets from our covered porch. The second floor has a great waterfront deck off one of the bedrooms.

My neighbor boasts that the only way to get closer to the water is to be on a boat!! Many have said while dining they feel like they are on a cruise ship because you can see the lights from the passingTug Boats and barges and the lights from Long Island's Port Jeff etc

The covered porch provides a great place to dine and relax. First renovated in the 80's to become a year round residence this property was again done over in 2011 ~ it has features that most beach houses do not have. Which include central air, a whirlpool bath tub and a sauna. We have a high efficiency heating system and a Rainni hot water system for instant hot water so you NEVER run out of hot water.

It is cooled by the breezes off Long Island Sound or you may use the CENTRAL air conditioning, if you prefer. The house is spacious and allows plenty of room for living and entertaining.

Of the 5 bedroom, 3 are quite large and have multiple beds. TWO are on the FIRST floor ~ which is helpful for Guests who prefer to NOT walk stairs. The bedrooms are large for a beach house and provide sleeping for entire families traveling with small children.

THE DINING RM TABLE SEATS 12! Milford has great family shopping! We have a WHOLE FOODS, TRADER JOES AND COSTCO, ALL WITHIN 3 MILES OF THE BEACH HOUSE!

We have just added a THIRD FULL Bathroom for our Guests to use and enjoy!

PET POLICY ~

MANY GUESTS ASK IF THEY CAN BRING THEIR DOG ~ their Fur Family member. I LOVE dogs. Many people have called me a Dog freak. That is an accurate description. However in this real world We ALLOW dogs provided they are on your OWN insurance policy at your home and you accept FULL responsibility for them for any damage or harm they may cause.

Our insurance regulations DO NOT ALLOW us to accept dogs that the Owners do not have on their own policy's.

ALL dogs must be on a leash at all times. The Neighbors are close by and do not like dogs on their property. We ask our Guests to be respectful of this. Connecticut and the Town of Milford have leash laws requiring dogs to be on leashes.

Traveling to Milford is easy, it is located right off I95 and the Merritt Parkway. It is also has it's own train station making it close to New York City. We have an express which gets you in and out of the city in an hour and a half.

Milford also has its own Town Harbor so you can have your friends come and visit by Boat.

The restaurants serve a variety of fare. Many of these restaurants ROCK on a weekend evening ~ they become a destination!

Then there is US 1 which has every store you can think of including the NEW Whole Foods, a Trader Joes and Costco which are quickly becoming destinations.

On US 1 is a first rate renovated mall which has many first rate stores as also fourteen ( 14 ) movie theaters.

On a Friday or Saturday night down town Milford Rocks!!! The town provides small town charm with city amenities. It is a great town to live, work and play!

95 Melba Street Was a Weekend of Wonder

  • 5 of 5

Our family from Boston and the Bronx were there and marveled at seeing the sunrise and sunset from the same porch! The location is everything and the guests spent the daylight hours walking the beach. The house has an easy flow pattern for family gatherings (we had 24 guests), and is loaded with amenities like washer/dryers, sauna, plenty of bathrooms and beds, and views from almost every window. The closeness of the ocean was huge! Groceries and wine store are close and neighbors are friendly. The Perfect Place to recharge with friends.

Another note, the downstairs bathroom is equipped with handicap bars and there's a portable ramp to get in from the garage. There is so much room downstairs that we had both a toddler in a walker and an older person with a walker, and they negotiated everything with no bother to others. Also Cheryl was very helpful and came up with 2 Pack-and-Plays and a high chair, saving us a ton of hassle.

Great house, wonderful town, awesome view

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of light and space in this beautiful place.

It offers everything you could possibly wish for in a vacation home and adds a gorgeous view as a bonus. We brought our dogs and they loved to play non-stop on the beach.

The house is very well taken care of and definitely worth the price.

The house was great! It easily held my 13 guests with room for more! The property manager was so helpful upon our arrival. She was just a quick phone call away. We will definitely be coming back!

A Slice Of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This home and beach experience was like a slice of Heaven on earth!

The beach house is immaculate and spacious. Everything you might require is here - from kitchen appliances, tableware, pots and pans, and even a spice drawer! The bedrooms are beautiful, and the upstairs bathroom has a sauna and a Jacuzzi bath. There is a huge bag of beach toys for children, and lots of board games piled high on a closet shelf.

Low tide makes it safe for children to play in its calm, shallow waters. High tide brings fairly nice size waves for children (and adults) to dive through. Lots of sea shells for shell collectors. Nothing is more relaxing than hearing the rhythmic crashing of the waves on shore and the sounds of seagulls looking for fish (a gentleman on our beach caught a 34 inch Bluefish during low tide the day before we left - so those who love to fish will not be disappointed here!).

We cannot say enough good things about the manager for this property. Cheryl Warren does everything she can to ensure that you have a magical stay. From the time she is first contacted, to the day you leave this beautiful property, she is accessible, replies promptly to calls and e-mails, and will do anything she can to meet a request. My Uncle made mention that he wished he had brought binoculars to look at all the ships and boats that were out on the horizon. Cheryl came back and lent him her binoculars. Thank you Cheryl for making this visit a time of healing, and a time of wonderful memories!

Perfect Home for Family Gatherings

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a Monday in October, the sun was shining, the waves were washing in and a lovely breeze blew. When we walked into the living room I actually felt I was on a cruise boat - only better - because the whole place was ours! Clean, comfortable and stunning. We loved every minute there. My Great Aunt Sadie was able to come on board because of the portable handicap ramp. And she loved having her birthday there! Our experience was made better by the magnificent Cheryl Warren. Her kind assistance made this trip a special one. It was a pleasure getting to know her little bit of Heaven in Milford between the points. Highly recommended.
