Property # 591289 - Gorgeous Updated House...???

  • 1 of 5

The property was advertised as a gorgeous updated house. The house was built in 1918, had very steep stairs both inside and outside and was not gorgeous. The kitchen and a small bathroom on the first floor had been updated. The 2nd floor bathroom which four people (ages 71, 84, 85 and 90) used at night was not at all handicap accessible! I had to go out and purchase a 5" raised toilet seat.There were no grab bars in the tub/shower area, very dangerous, so one person could not take showers.

Throughout the house there were very many rugs covering very dirty carpets. We had to remove the rugs because they were so hazardous.

The deck at the back was the only part of the house that accommodated us comfortably. It was excellent and provided a perfect view and access to beach and water. We wanted to use the grill on the deck, but found it too dirty to even attempt to clean.

Generally speaking, we were very disappointed with our accommodations and feel that your advertisement misrepresented the house and what we believed would be a very good experience at this Milford Property.

I suggest that you contact the owner and ask her to revise her advertisement.

Sincerely,

Jean

Perfect Beach Week!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this lovely beach house. Incredibly well equipped and comfortable, perfectly located, with a huge deck half covered with a canvas canopy. We had one day of rain, but still enjoyed sitting under the canopy staying dry. This house had everything we needed and more. We're already talking about next summer.

Beautiful home on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting on this beach for five years and decided to try and find a more upgraded home this year. We were not disappointed! This home is lovely and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The owner answered emails within hours and was very accommodating. The deck is spectacular and couldn't be designed better. We cannot wait until next year!

Beautiful Week on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I have stayed here for a week. My daughters and I had a wonderful week. The winter at the beach to me is as beautiful as the summer. It snowed for us one of the days and it was gorgeous! Cannot wait to go back again!

9 days in paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful place to get away from it all and have some rest and relaxation. A quite place to read a book, watch movies and take long walks on the amazing clean beaches. We stayed here in the winter and cannot wait to come back already. The sun rises and sun sets were priceless each day! We rang in 2017 here and made an amazing dinner on NYE with this perfectly stocked kitchen to make a nice gourmet meal. Everything was JUST PERFECT! We will definitely be back!
