Maritza Budet and John Winkler purchased this apartment in 2004
Why Maritza Budet and John Winkler chose Greenport
John and I chose Greenport Village because of my love of antiques and wonderful 'unspoiled' older homes, while enjoying an innocent and simple quality of life in the Village. John's love of all things in or near the water.. boating, fishing, swimming... fresh seafood....The Long Island Sound and Peconic Bay made it a simple choice with countless activities to enjoy.
What makes this apartment unique
Walk to all , owners provide high chair and baby bjorn crib Beach and park six is houses away. Walk to village and transportation ,over 50 vineyards within 20 miles
We spent a lovely weekend at this home. Loved the nearby restaurants, the quick walk to the beach, and of course the property itself. It was a beautifully restored place, very roomy,, and the pictures don't do it justice. The location is peaceful and charming. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay and would definitely return.
We had a perfect time in Greenport staying in John & Maritza's 1st floor apartment. It has everything you can think of, plus more. We used the Jitney to get from Manhattan to Greenport & back which worked really well. The lack of car during our stay was actually a bonus, as we used the bikes supplied to explore, as well as the ferry to shelter island. Our stay was very relaxing & a great contrast to time in Manhattan. We had great weather & used the beach chairs to relax on the beach at the end of the road a couple of times. Highly recommended, we hope to return
As positive as all the prior reviews are, and as lovely as the pictures of this beautiful home are, they only begin to hint at the wonderful experience that awaits you upon your arrival and during your stay here. My expectations were that this would be a pretty and comfortable place to stay in a village that my husband and I have come to love. We wanted to have a vacation where we would stay in a place that felt more like a home than a hotel or b&b. My expectations were exceeded in every way; the rooms are spacious, the furnishings are both elegant and homey, with loving attention to detail. The kitchen is well equipped, the appliances are in great shape, and everything is laid out in a very intuitive way. Everything SPARKLES.The shower stall is a little small (and I am a little big), but that's because it's on the same side of the bathroom as the stacked washer and dryer (which are a wonderful convenience and very easy to use). The neighborhood itself is quiet and serene; we were awakened every morning by birdsong outside the bedroom windows, instead of traffic noise. It's a five minute walk from town, and two minutes from the Fifth Street beach (with beautiful plantings that Maritza, John and their friend Helen attentively maintain). For nature lovers, there's a lot to see, just on daily walks in the neighborhood. There's an osprey nest just east of the beach's parking area with young birds in it. On our daily walks, we saw bunnies on lawns, egrets, purple finches, red-winged blackbirds, grackle families, and even a deer! Maritza and John are very friendly and such dear people, One of our nicest memories of our stay in Greenport is the afternoon we all spent chatting on their porch, sharing a bottle of wine from their friend Frank's vineyard (Frank owns D'Latte and Biere in the village--our midmorning gelato & espresso breaks at D'Latte are another unforgettable memory). The Winklers are warm, sweet, and down-to-earth-- by our second day, we felt like we were staying with family...in a good way :). They are very knowledgeable about the area and have available several wonderful Greenport history books for you to peruse during your stay. With all the amenities provided, you really only need bring your clothes and toothbrush. I know I'm going to be dreaming about this beautiful home until we have the chance to come back again. Our stay was a relaxing, revitalizing experience that bears repeating on an at least annual basis. We can't wait to return!
John and Maritza were wonderful hosts and the apartment was extremely well equipped. We especially found the use of their toddler booster seat, childrens cutlery, books and toys a great help. The apartment is located up the road from a beach with a playground which we fully utilized. I would certainly recommend staying here to other travelers.
My husband and I stayed here with our 18 month old over Memorial Day weekend and couldn't have been happier. The rental was spotless, spacious and in a perfect location. It is an easy walk into town and we loved having the convenience of not having to hop in our car. A 2-minute walk away is the water and a lovely playground and we loved visiting each morning. The block is very quiet and peaceful and the porch is great to sit on in the evenings and just relax. There is even an amazing robin's nest on the porch & we were delighted to watch the mother feed her babies as the sun went down. Perfect! The only thing I would caution is the shower is a little small so if you're looking for a spacious soak, be warned. But honestly, I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else when we return to Greenport (and we will). The house has everything you need, is in the ideal location and is beautifully kept.

We had the most perfect spring weekend stay in this lovely apartment. The location and accommodations were ideal, and our young children adored the beach and playground just down the street. The Winkers are superb hosts!
