Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at Hillcrest. It was great having the little beach so close. I loved bringing my coffee down in the morning. We actually even won the sand castle contest! The house had everything we could think of and we will definitely be back next year!

Hillcrest

Nice place, great location on the east end of the island. Owner was very helpful and responsive with any questions we had. If our plans take us back to Long Island we will definitely consider this house again.

Amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish, the Hillcrest property made our Long Island vacation amazing! From ease of booking with great communication from owners - all of our questions were answered promptly. Use of the car was an added bonus and necessity for getting around the island and to/from ferry. The house was very clean with everything we could have needed - plenty of toys for the kids and all the amenities to make our stay very comfortable. We will definitely be returning!!

Relaxing vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been vacationing on Long Island every year for decades. We have stayed in several different houses. This house was perfect for us (dog friendly too). It was clean, comfortable, with modern appliances and extremely well stocked with paper goods, bikes,and beach accessories. It was our first time staying on the east end and we enjoyed the change of scenery. The truck provided for our use was essential and greatly appreciated. Lovely place to spend a week on the island!

Fantastic Getaway for a couple or family!

  • 5 of 5

My family of six enjoyed Hillcrest. The cottage was comfortable and clean. The photo's are great but do not show all that Hillcrest and the surrounding island have to offer. Beach access was easy and the beach offered a feeling of privacy. Our children enjoyed the freedom to explore and create their own island adventure. The owners were very helpful and made our stay wonderful. My wife and I highly recommend this rental property to all. We will be back!
