BEST VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
"Wow!" and "What a view!" are the first words from all of us as we walked into this house. The expansive view of the Sound from every room and from the large deck is spectacular.
We've been renting vacation homes every Summer and Winter for the past ten years and this house has the best view by far. Watching the sunrise and sunset over the water everyday was truly magical.

The house is spacious and compfortable, and has everything you could need for cooking, games, a ping pong table, a play yard for children with a slide and swings, TV, BBQ grill, and lots of towels.

The beach is less than a block away, and although it's the pebbley type, we enjoyed swimming and the fact that there were no crowds. We also rented a Kayak from the house and that was a winner.

The house is in a very quiet and friendly residental area. At night, you will only hear the waves and crickets. Forget about traffic sounds, car radios, and a loud party next door, you can really relax here.

Shay was very helpful throughout our stay there. He made sure that we felt at home and always promptly replied to our requests and questions. (Thanks for making our family get- together such a great time and rejuvenating all of us on this vacation.)

We plan to return!!!

Happy Family

PERFECT VIEW AND PERFECTLY EQUIPPED FOR SMALL KIDS

  • 5 of 5
We had a 10 day family vacation in this house and the whole setting was really perfect. The house is fully equipped including toys, which is especially great for smaller children. There is even slide and a swing in the garden.

While there is no direct beach access, the beach is easy and fast to reach.

The house was clean and well maintained, so the photos here on the page really reflect the current state.

Shay was very helpful and professional in the whole communication.

I can only recommend staying here.

NICE VIEW BUT LACKING OTHERWISE

  • 4 of 5
Working with the owner, Shay, was wonderful. He was quick and responsive to questions and requests. Return of security deposit was seamless.

This house in Sound Beach provides a great view from the upper and lower deck. The outdoor grill was fantastic. Location is within a residential neighboring and the nearest store was 15 minutes away. The house has ample room to roam. I've given 4 stars but would rate this property as a 3.5 stars. As the owner was great to work with, I do regret to report a number of things that I think can be improved, but I must be honest in review as I wish the following was known prior to booking:

1 - There is only one TV, an older model, located in the entirety of the property located downstairs. There is no cable service.
2 - The decks had seen better days. Needs to be re-finished.
3 - Linens and towels were subpar (old and pilling).
4 - The playground/front garden is overgrown.
5 - There is construction going on next door (adjacent to the house). On weekdays the work crew next door literally parked on the property's driveway.
6 - Though the house was not dirty, the property can use a good deep cleaning. I didn't feel that we were staying at a rental property, but more like someone's summer home.
7 - Upon departure, owner require renter to strip all beds and sweep/vacuum/swiffer floors.
8 - The private beach is a 5 minute walk away and frankly, i didn't think it was well maintained.

All of above would had been fine but at the price point ($400+ per night), I felt that the value was not there. Though we enjoyed ourselves during our stay, my expectations were not met.

Owner's Response: This is surprising and we regret that no one have brought any of the issues to the Owner during or after the guest's rental.

1 - We are aware of this and will respond to it shortly. A flat screen TV is in process of installation in the family room. We do not provide TV in every single room. We as well as most of our guests don't use the TV at all. Computers / iPads and others are used to watch movies online with the usage of our WiFi. Cable TV service is not provided and is noted on our web-page. If one does want to watch TV, there are about 12 TV channels received through a digital receiver.
2 - The deck is scheduled to receive a power-wash treatment this year to make it more attractive.
3 - Linens & Towels are NOT old at all. We continuously purchasing and replacing towels. Linens are replaced also regularly and ALL Linens are new or less than 2 years old. Maybe older towels that needed to be thrown away were not thrown, but the house have more than enough new towels for 8 adults and 2 kids. Simply choose the towels that you prefer to use.
4 - Both front and back yards are groomed regularly and taken care of. The renter arrived at a point in time before regular landscape maintenance started this season.
5 - Next door construction is to be completed this month (06/2014). We have added another addition to the property to provided upgraded accommodations to our guests. 95% of the work was completed (We regret if some of the parking was taken by the construction crew that completed some work inside the new addition).
6 - Although this is indeed our summer home, the property is cleaned regularly. If there was / is any issue with cleaning, it was not brought to our attention. The house is located right next to the beach and its only natural that some sand would find its way in.
7 - Correct - We request guests to only pile up towels and linens on the floor, not leave dirty dishes and to broom clean before departure. We do not expect guests to leave the house completely careless behind them.
8 - This is a personal feel. The Sound Beach Property Owners Association is considered to be one of the best in the area with regards to beach maintenance and care. In the future we are considering adding stairs from the property directly down to the beach for shorter access.

As other guests noted and as we can see by comparison, the accommodation value received for the rates and fees exceeds all and any other optional accommodations in our area.

AMAZING LONG WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
My fiance and I rented this house along with a few other couples and had an amazing long weekend. Shay was wonderful to work with and was more than accommodating. There are three bedrooms, one has a futon bed, but was still very comfortable. We were worried because we had a fourth couple for two nights, but, because the house is so big, they had their own space downstairs in the living room. The house comes with passes to a private beach shared by the community, just a minute walk from the house. You will only encounter a few people, which makes for a very relaxing beach day. The best feature of the house by far is the huge deck, which overlooks the expansive Sound. We spent every evening on the deck as their are the most amazing sunsets over the water in the summer.
This house is made for people that want to go to the beach, hang out with friends, and cook. It is close to Port Jefferson, but there are no shops, bars, restaurants in walking distance... it is definitely in a residential neighborhood. That being said, you won't want to leave as the house and beach provide everything you need. I would even rent this property during the fall or winter as it is very cozy and has many fireplaces. For those looking for an extremely relaxing stay with friends or family, this is the property for you.

WONDERFUL VIEWS AND LOCATION, TONS OF AMENITIES

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family went back to Sound Beach after 40+ years and picked this house for the views and location. It didn't disappoint! We had most of our meals on the deck table, saw some stunning sunsets and had an easy walk down to the beach. The house itself has tons of amenities. All of the beds, sheets and duvets are super comfortable, the kids loved the ping pong table downstairs, and the kitchen had every gadget, and spice you'd need! We brought cooking staples, books, and paper products but didnt need to - everything was there, which made meals and just hanging out on the deck super easy and relaxing. The kids liked the play fort also. Thanks for a great stay!

PERFECT WEEKEND GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
I rented this house with a group of small friends for a mini trip away from the hustle and bustle of NYC. The house is so gorgeous (the pictures really don't do it justice. It's a lot bigger than it looks!) and at night you can catch an amazing view of the sunset. We could've went to the hamptons where everyone goes, but this was much better. No crowds, a private beach, and very peaceful. Shay was great to work with...he was quick to respond to emails at all times. This is definitely a place I would rent again. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect weekend!
