The Space

A beautiful newly renovated turn of the century beach cottage 1/2 a block from the Long Island Sound and steps to Walnut Beach in historic Milford, Connecticut awaits!

Perfect for vacationers who enjoy kite and wind surfing, cycling, sailing or kayaking. If you enjoy tennis, the local recreation center up the block has a court The nearby Audubon Nature Center on the Housatonic River provides excellent summer programs for families with young children. Enjoy casting for blue fish at the end of the street or building a sand castle during the annual competition. Artist fairs on the historic town green are a local attraction as are the oyster and lobster festivals each year. Listen to music or a warm summer night by the harbor or just enjoy a stroll along the boardwalk which connects to Silver Sands State Park and explore Charles Island at low tide. Enjoy reading the morning paper with your espresso in the sun room or gaze at the water from the front yard bench. Grill out in just the right sized backyard and enjoy tiki torch dinners in this quiet beach community. Cycling is a nice way to explore the downtown with it's quaint shops, restaurants and harbor. A lovely cafe bike with wicker basket is available for use for local errands. Additional bike and kayak rentals are available from the local bike shop on the town green. On cooler fall or spring nights, snuggle by the back yard chiminea and roast some smores.

If you want to explore the excitement of New York City for the day, it's an easy trip by Metro North train and only 1 1/2 hours away. Or take a boat tour of the Thimble Islands just 25 minutes up I-95.

If cooking is your thing, the kitchen boasts a professional Ilve 5 burner duel fuel range with built in rotiserrie and a brand new Bosch side by side refrigerator. Addtionally, the house comes completely stocked including espresso and pasta machines, juicer and waffle iron along with cook books. The cellar holds not only the washer/dryer, but a wine cooler as well.

Or if you want a holiday, but still need to be commuting distance to your New York City office, this is the place. The house has wi-fi and a home office in the sun room. So whether you just want to relax and get away from it all or a combination of both, Milford is a great destination!

  • We had a wonderful stay in this house by the beach. The house is really beautiful, very well-decorated, very comfortable and just down the street from the Sound. All 6 of us were able to sleep in very gracious bedrooms, cook meals in the fully equipped kitchen, eat together at the table, watch movies, and get where we needed to go easily. The host was very gracious and communicative and the house was fully equipped to meet all our needs. I would highly recommend staying in this beach house.

  • Tina was a great host. The house was very clean upon arrival. This is the one and only house where the sheets actually smelled really nice and fresh. Everything was spic & span. The house also had some holiday decoration. Easy access to the beach for walks and great shopping in the neighborhood. We can definitely recommend to stay at Tina`s house.

I work in television which can be hectic, so I love to travel a lot when I'm not working. I have friends all over the world thanks to my work! When I'm home I bike a lot or surf.
