PRIVATE VACATION RETREAT-BY-THE-SEA

Miller Place House Rental Photos and Description

Waterfront beach house with more than 100 feet of beach on the Long Island Sound in the private gated community of Scott’s Beach – a vacation by the sea. The height of the home above the water provides gorgeous expansive views of the Sound and there are adjacent stairs leading to the beach below. For those preferring only a few stairs, there is access to the beach with available parking at the western end of Scott’s Beach, a short walk from the home. Privacy abounds as the home is at the end of a dead-end street abutting a ten-acre vacant parcel of wooded land.

Built in 1997, the approximately 3500 square foot home has four bedrooms on the upper floor along with a large master bathroom and a family bathroom. The master bedroom has a king bed, the second bedroom has a queen bed plus a queen-size hide a bed and the third bedroom has two twin beds. The fourth bedroom has a twin bed and also houses a home office for those requiring space to work while on vacation and a library for those interested in reading a good book. The home sleeps seven in beds and up to eleven if the hide a beds are used.

The main floor is comprised of a spacious ocean room/great room with a wall of windows facing out to the Sound, giving the sense of being on a ship. A deck accessed from the ocean room and kitchen spans the entire back and one side of the home for outdoor relaxation above the beach. The main floor also has a den with a queen-size hide a bed, dining room, powder room, kitchen and dinette.

For those interested in strictly indulging in the amenities of the home and Scott’s Beach, there is walking the private wooded streets, enjoying the beach at the home or at the beach at the west-end of Scott’s Beach, relaxation on the deck with a delicious drink and a good book or indoor enjoyment of television, board games, puzzles, the internet, conversation or a much-needed nap. Peace and quiet abound. In pleasant weather, listen through the bedroom windows to the ripples of the water lapping onto the shore.

I live in two states - Michigan and New York. I love spending time on the beach, frequently walking, watching the sunsets and listening to the water lap up on the shore. I have two children, both grown and living in New York City. I live with my little dog, Oreo, and we have fun playing together. I am an attorney and a writer and find the vistas of the Sound from the house inspiring!

Elissa Schwartz purchased this house in 2004

The view, it is all about the view! Top that off with approximately 3500 square feet of beautiful space and a gorgeous beach and the property simply cannot be beat!

The view, the privacy, the sound of the water lapping up on the shore heard through the windows and the sense of being on a ship when in the ocean room make this home unique and inviting.

Wonderful beach house with stunning views

  • 5 of 5
This is a very special place. The setting is very private and all you see from the house is the sound. Thanks to the owner, Elissa, we arranged this from Arizona and it all came off without a hitch. We were 10 people and the house was very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and all the necessary tools. The house is pristine and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. I can't say enough about how accommodating Elissa was at every step. If we ever want to have another family gathering on Long Island we would definitely want to stay here again.

Great house, tons of space

  • 5 of 5
Everything went without a hitch. The house was huge and we were able to fit our entire group very comfortably. The owner is very nice and easy to deal with. In general, it was a great weekend and everything went smoothly.

Perfect for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5
First and foremost, the owner is wonderful to work with and it's clear she takes great pride in her home and wants her guests to enjoy it as much as she does. We were in town for a wedding with two young kids and our parents. Everyone loved the home including our very active two-year-old who could run at his heart's desire on the property or on the beach. A huge plus was direct access to the beach right on the property. The house itself is beautiful and there is more than enough space to entertain an entire family or guests. There are water views from almost every room and amazing walls of windows that really take advantage of the views. The house has just about everything you would need with plenty of dishes, kitchen appliances, linens, etc. The only thing you might need (if you have little kids) is a Pack'n'Play since there is no crib at the house. The home feels like a private oasis, but there are stores and restaurants within a few minutes drive. Close to Port Jefferson, Islip airport and not too far from the Hamptons and North Fork. If we find ourselves on Long Island again, we will definitely be staying here. Thanks for a great stay!

Super Relaxing Weekend Getaway House!!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and a few friends of ours recently stayed here for a relaxing weekend away from New York City -- the house is truly beautiful, with lovely views of the LI Sound and direct access to a small beach on the North Shore! There is a ton of space for guests, and the house makes a perfect destination for groups of adults or families who are looking for accomodations on the water. It's also very close to the Port Jefferson LIRR station and is easily accessible for people traveling without a car. In addition, the owner is very responsive and makes every effort to make you feel at home. Would definitely recommend this house to anyone - we will definitely be coming here again!

Thanks to the owner, Elissa. We had a wonderful time there. Perfect setting. Great ocean view from the house and clean waterfront. She is so helpful if you have any questions. My parents from Japan came along and they had fantastic vacation there. See you some other time.
