Condo, 2 Bedrooms Including Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
Luxury waterfront (Cleaves Point) condo located in the bucolic hamlet of East Marion. Breathtaking views of Gardiner's Bay, Shelter Island and 'Bug' Lighthouse. East Marion was chosen by actress Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise to film the movie 'The Romantics'; which was recently released. In 1997, Greenport was used in the filming of 'The Devil's Own', starring Harrison Ford and Brad Pitt. They were seen dining on Front Street.
Singer, Billy Joel, once owned property in East Marion. That property is now part of Cove Beach Estates. My wife and I saw Billy as he dined on Love Lane in Mattituck and he sometimes sails his boat 'Alexa', into Greenport Harbor, to visit Preston's. Pop star, Katy Perry, spent some time at Schmitt's Farm in Riverhead in August; taking pictures for her latest album.

About The Owner
I have been an owner and operator of rental properties for 21 years; including 11 years on the North Fork. In May of 2010, I converted this waterfront condo from a year round rental to a vacation rental. I know that with our experience and our attention to details, your stay will be an enjoyable and memorable one. Upon your arrival, enjoy complimentary bottled water and chocolates !!
We also own another condo nearby (for our own use), so if you need any assistance or have any questions, we are only steps away.
The Owner purchased this condo in 1998
Why The Owner chose East Marion
We fell in love with waterfront living when we began vacationing in Cape May, New Jersey. We knew that this was the kind of vacation that we enjoyed the best. There is nothing more relaxing then sitting by the beach and enjoying the sights and sounds of nearby water. We did this for a few years and then wanted to try something new. We spent a day in Riverhead at the annual fair and then again for a weekend in Greenport. We fell in love with the North Fork, and the rest, like they say, is history ! We love this condo so much, that we decided to hold on to it even though we purchased our own condo in the same building in late 2002. In September of 2009, we purchased a Ranch style home overlooking the Mattituck Inlet, and it is there that we now call home. We absolutely love the North Fork and intend to live out our lives there. Forbes magazine has just listed Greenport as one of the prettiest towns in America. Come spend some of your vacation time at our condo and you will understand why.
What makes this condo unique
Enjoy condo living at its best without the traffic and craziness of the South Fork. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the incredible view from your own private waterfront balcony. To be able to see a lighthouse from your own living room is very special !
I think what I love the best is the peace and tranquility of being right on the water. I love to wake up very early and go out on my deck to watch the sun rise over Gardiner's Bay.
I also love to walk down to our private beach and sit in one of our adirondack chairs and listen to the water hit the shore just inches from my feet.
Just steps away from our beach is our own private marina. Walk down to the end of the dock and you can see the ferries going back and forth from Greenport to Shelter Island.
East Marion is close enough to Greenport Village to drive to or bike to for shopping and dining but yet far enough away to enjoy the solitude of this quaint hamlet.
