Guestbook comments from the owner
We had the pleasure of staying in your amazing house last week. I don't think I have ever woken up to such a wonderful view. Now totally in love with Greenport and the North Fork. Hamptons totally over-rated!

My wife and I began coming out to the North Fork of Long Island when we were children. Our families lived in Roslyn LI and always looked forward to our annual visits to the beaches of the town of Southold 'way out near Orient Point'.

Over 10 years ago, my wife and I and our sons began renting homes on the North Fork to be close to our extended family that resides in the area (Greenport, East Marion, and Cutchogue). In 2003, after searching for 4 years, we found and bought the most desirable place on earth, Breakwater (OK, I'm biased but you'll see).

Since then, our summers have been filled with immeasurable joys and lifetime memories. But, for us, the fun doesn't end at Labor Day; we continue to travel (from Westchester, NY) throughout the Fall, Winter, and Spring for grand getaways at Breakwater.

At this time, our very active/athletic boys are in high school making it a little difficult for us to spend as much time as we'd like on Long Island. Once our boys move on, we expect to, once again, enjoy full summers in wonderful Greenport. Until then, our situation is your gain :)

Mike Corso purchased this house in 2003

Breakwater is but 5 houses away from my brother's summer home on Beach Road, 2 miles from my sister's home on the Long Island Sound in Greenport, and a 1-mile swim to my wife's family in East Marion.

Aside from close proximity to family, our property (as you can see from the aerial views) sits on a peninsula with 270 degree views of Peconic Bay and Greenport Harbor. The location, the land, and the privates beaches of Breakwater are nothing short of stunning.

Our 4 acres of land and beach afford us the opportunity to enjoy several unique sitting areas, each with a fabulous view of the Bay's never ending eye candy.

Close proximity to the beautiful town of Greenport (and all of its shops and restaurants) is another added benefit. You are able to kayak 10-20 minutes across Greenport Harbor into town or you can walk, jog, bike, or drive 2 miles if that's your preference.

Magical Accommodations

  • 5 of 5
My fiance and I recently rented Breakwater Cottage for a week to host our wedding ceremony and backyard BBQ style reception. Mike was phenomenal to work with and prompt in checking in on us and answering all of our questions. The pictures of the property are spot on with what is offered but they cannot convey the sheer beauty and magic that they days views bring. From sunrise to sundown this property is immaculate. There are tons of little nooks in the dunes to relax in with private chairs, a fire pit, sea kayaks, a never ending rock jetty, volleyball court, and walking paths. The hammock in the yard was a big favorite and the yard provided enough space for impromptu soccer and frisbee games. Aside from the view, the kitchen is probably the best aspect of the house. The oversized fridge/freezer, 6 burner stove top, double oven, and two outdoor grills made preparation and meals a breeze! We loved Breakwater Cottage and look forward to going back in the future! Thank you Mike!

views that cant be beat from every angle of the property (wake up early to see the sunrise), very nice yard, 2 different beach options. We had our families out for my wifes birthday weekend and the house and the property couldn't have been more accommodating. yard was filled with games and kids running around, the beach was beautiful and the kitchen and living area of the house was wide open so we could all enjoy the company. plenty of comfortable sleeping room for all. we will be wanting to stay there again for sure!

Lovely home in a picturesque location

  • 5 of 5
The pictures are quite accurate - the home is perched on a corner lot with 180 degree views of the water, and it is cozy and welcoming. The owner Mike is helpful and very responsive. The community is quiet and relaxed. The town has some nice restaurants - our favorite was Noah's.

Owner's Response: Thank you! And thanks for choosing Breakwater! BTW, just discovered a great new shop in Greenport featuring the best collection of hot sauces I've ever seen: Greenport Fire. It's located on Main Street a few doors north of Lucharitos (a must-visit joint for Burritos and Margaritas).

Fantastic getaway in Greenport

  • 5 of 5
We rented Breakwater Cottage for a long girls weekend away at the vineyards and it was absolutely perfect!! The house is amazing and the property is even better. The beach is beautiful and it was so nice to wake up to panoramic views of the water. Mike was extremely helpful in setting up our stay! It was great for our getaway, but it would be even better for a family vacation and I can't wait to plan a return trip back with my family next year.

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent five nights at "Breakwater Cottage". Our group included me, my wife and our two children (3 years and 5 months) as well as extended family of my brother-in-law and his family (including a 2 year old).

We travel frequently, and use VRBO and other sights extensively. This was one of our best experiences by far.

The Rental Property:
The house has what I imagine is the best location in all of Greenport. Direct access to hundreds of feet of sandy beach with calm surf ideal for young children. We couldn't keep our kids out of the water. Amazing views of Shelter Island, as well as full sunrise and sunset. The village of Greenport is a short drive/kayak ride away with all the shops/food options/groceries you could need. In addition, there is a vineyard and a public golf course within 2 miles. The property itself is amazing. Large yard that surrounds the house on three sides. A number of small hide away spots on the property. My personal favorite was the hammock in a corner of the yard shaded by a small pine tree. It was equally useful for midday naps or midnight star gazing.
The House:
Well laid out, great open living/dining/kitchen area with a separate TV room with comfy couches. Kitchen was modern and literally had everything you could possibly need for preparing meals. Huge oversized fridge. Bathrooms are all large and modern. Bedrooms are also large and the beds are very comfortable.
The Owner:
Mike was great to rent from. He was easy to work with, very responsive before, during, and even after the rental. He even met us at check in and showed us around the property.
Other:
On top of all the positives about this house, it also came with items that we do not typically see in such rentals. Linens were provided, as were house and beach towels (and plenty of them). There is also a full complement on children's beach toys. Add in a newer washer/dryer, and packing for a family became much easier. The outside shower was also great when returning from the beach.

Our whole family had a blast. We highly recommend checking this rental out.

Stunning location and beautiful home

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at the house over labor day with another couple and their son. We couldn't have been more pleased with the property and location. The lawn was very large with plenty of outdoor seating and dinning for adults but room enough for kids to play. The beach was just on the other side of the seagrass from the lawn and was extremely accessible for all - making a quick visit during the day a great option rather than having to get in the car or take a long walk. The house was beautifully maintained with an open kitchen, dinning and living floorplan that was great for groups. And the bedrooms were all large with room for portable cribs and anything else you could need. And Mike, the owner was courteous and helpful - great suggestions for dinning out and running routes, etc...
Most importantly, there was barely a moment that passed that we did not feel awed by the views afforded by the property. Overall, a fabulous stay!!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for that glowing review!

It was great meeting you. And, after 10 years, we, too, are awed by the views every day that we spend at Breakwater.

Thanks again,

This beautiful, one-of-a-kind beach house is located on a private beach facing the spectacular views of Shelter Island and the Peconic Bay (to the East/South East) and Greenport Harbor (to the South). It is nestled on a Sandy Beach like no other location in the area.

If you are planning a vacation or special event outing and want to get away from it all, this is the place to come. Have a picnic on a private beach overlooking the Peconic Bay with your favorite beverage in hand.

As secluded and quiet as the location is, it's only a short stroll away to the quaint maritime Village of Greenport where you will find restaurants, shopping with a variety of boutiques and stores to fit your every need.

The area is also home to approximately 30 vineyards that feature regular tastings and live music in a 'Sonoma' like bucolic setting.

Finally, if you're into bike riding, there's no better place to cycle than the North Fork (to Orient Point) or on Shelter Island where an endless number of stunning views appear at every turn.
