PRIVATE & STYLISH WATERFRONT COTTAGE ON SECLUDED BEACH & DUNES

Peconic Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 BR/1.5 Baths (+ outdoor shower) with panoramic water views; sleeps 5

An uncommonly stylish and amazingly private modern beach house, with unrivaled panoramic views of Long Island Sound and the gentle curve of the coastline. Surrounded by protected sand dunes but no houses west along the beach – as far as the eye can see – this century-old, handsomely renovated house features massive picture windows, a two-level deck, and BBQ/fire pit. Your own, private 50-yard path leads directly to a secluded and serene private stretch of beach. Sunsets are spectacular.

The light and airy interior features contemporary and mid-century modern furnishings, gourmet kitchen, windows on all sides, sleek hardwood floors, fireplace, cathedral ceilings and original art throughout. Secluded at the end of an unpaved road, in a friendly, private beach community, the cottage is ideal for couples and small families to enjoy long walks on the beach; swimming in the Sound; dining, cocktails and sunning on the decks; biking; and excursions just minutes away to the North Fork’s famed wineries, seafood restaurants and farm stands.

Dog-friendly, but not available for weddings, parties, proms or group shares.

A REAL BEAUTY!

  • 5 of 5
We have been visiting the North Fork since our children were quite small, and we just stayed in Peconic’s Sound Dunes Cottage. What a pristine, natural, and special place -- rare to find, now that parts are beginning to feel rather more suburban. This “private and stylish waterfront cottage” is a real beauty – renovated, modern, simply, but tastefully and comfortably designed, fitting right in with its exquisite location -- from the shingles on the cottage to the shells on the deck. Gloriously high ceilings, vaulted and beamed! How peaceful to lounge on the cottage’s deck with a morning coffee, or watch the sunset over a glass of wine. You can overlook the dunes with not another house in sight. It’s all about space, light, and nature, with mesmerizing views onto the Sound and Sky -- the colors ever changing, even in a late Spring.

We discovered a small (salt) marsh with plenty of birds not far from the cottage. During our short stay (and, we reckon, our 8th trip to the North Fork), we enjoyed walking and birding along the beach; fishing on the jetty near Goldsmith’s Inlet; golfing at Cedars; pottering around Greenport; finding New Suffolk; eating at the newly re-opened Pepi’s; and visiting Horton Point and favorite haunts in Love Lane. Everything is so close (farmland, vineyards, beautiful stony beaches), yet you wouldn’t know you were just 90 miles from New York.

The rental process was very easy. Friendly and relaxed, the owners are an absolute pleasure to know. They made us feel right at home, even before we arrived. We highly recommend Sound Dunes Cottage and are sure you will love it as much as we did -- in whatever season you may travel. Thank you, Neil and Sharon, and we look forward to a return trip!

AMAZING BEACH HOUSE!!!

  • 5 of 5
I cannot begin to describe the view when you walk into this lovely and charming beach house. It is spectacular at the least. My fiance and I and our two dogs rented the house for a quiet long weekend and were greeted with a charming, clean and comfortable house which is even better in person than the photos. Neil, the owner, provides a thorough manual for the house and surrounding area, so we felt fully prepared. The house is furnished in contemporary and modern style but is still comfortable for a beach house. However, we found ourselves outside on the decks or on the beach for most of our visit. It did rain one day and we were still happy sitting and watching the waves from the living room by the fireplace. If you are looking for a house for a romantic getaway, or for a small family-this is your house. You, (and your dogs) will love it!

PERFECT BEACH COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
We cannot say enough about how perfect this cottage is. We spent 3 nights soaking up the views, taking walks on the beach and enjoying the town. We even became wine club members at a local winery. Looking for a time to bring our kids with us for another visit soon!

PARADISE IN THE PECONIC

  • 5 of 5
THIS BEACH HOUSE IS AMAZING. WE (MYSELF, MY HUSBAND, OUR 12 YR. OLD SON, OUR 13 YR. OLD DAUGHTER AND OUR 2 DOGS) WERE LOOKING FOR A CLEAN HOUSE ON THE BEACH WHERE THE DOGS CAN RUN OFF THE LEASH AND WE CAN ALL BICYCLE AND ENJOY TIME TOGETHER. THIS PLACE EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS. THE OWNER, NEIL, IS SO HELPFUL. WE DID BRING OUR OWN LINENS BUT ALL WAS PROVIDED. THE VIEWS FROM THE HOUSE ARE SPECTACULAR. THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS SO FRIENDLY AND THE BEACH IS SO CLEAN. MY KIDS LOVED PLAYING ON THE BOULDERS. THE WEATHER WAS A LITTLE COLD BUT IT WAS STILL NICE. WE WOULD LOVE TO RETURN WHEN THE WEATHER IS A BIT WARMER. WE ONLY STAYED FOR TWO NIGHTS. WE DINED AT ELBOW'S EAST AND HAD DELICIOUS STEAK AND SEAFOOD. WE ENJOYED NEIGHBORING GREENPORT AND HAD HOME MADE ICE CREAM IN MATTITUCK AT MAGIC FOUNTAIN. NOW THAT I KNOW HOW BEAUTIFUL AND CLEAN THIS PLACE WAS, I WOULD DEFINITELY RETURN AND PLAN ON JUST HANGING OUT AT THE HOUSE AND COOKING A NICE FAMILY DINNER AND ENJOYING THE VIEWS.
THANK YOU NEIL SO MUCH. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT WE NEEDED.

WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
This is an absolutely wonderful home. It's cute, clean and well maintained. The location is fantastic, very private, directly on the beach, and very close to great North Fork towns, restaurants, and wineries. One or two short, easy ferry rides and you can easily visit Shelter Island and the Hamptons as well. It's a perfect base for a visit to the eastern end of Long Island. And Neil, the owner, is truly a very kind person, and always quick to respond if ever needed. We would most certainly rent this home again. It was a wonderful experience and we had a great time while we were there.

SPECTACULAR

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have just spent the latter half of our NY stay in "Sound Dunes" after being in the City for a week. You know how most places fail to live up to the expectations created by photos and write-ups? Well Sound Dunes is EXACTLY as good as it looks on this site. For us ai has been the perfect place to wind down and relax. The house itself has a crisp, clean feel yet maintains a comforting warmth. The location is perfect - a hop skip and a jump to the quiet beach. In fact, we never saw another soul, even when we went for a few lovely walks down the way. There were two rainy days where we did not venture out farther than the beach (come rain, shine or pitch-black night the girls loved that beach!) but that provided a good excuse to just sit back, watch the fire and read (or play dinosaurs if you are a four year old). In the local vicinity there are plenty of good places to eat and wander. We stayed in and cooked a few times in the very good little kitchen. If you fancy a run the beach is perfect but the local back roads are very pretty as well. Trips out to Orient Point and over to Shelter Island are highly recommended if you like wandering, as we do. Neil (the owner) is an excellent communicator and all his advice was spot-on. All-in-all just a spectacular place to which we will undoubtedly return. A fitting end to a fantastic vacation.
