Beautiful, peaceful vacation on the water

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying here. We traveled from the Midwest to be close to our family in the area shortly after having a baby. Our family of 5 found the house to have ample space plus room for guests. The second living space with tv and table tennis on the lower level was great for the kids. We practically lived on the deck which was nicely refinished and painted. We used the grill most nights and watched the most amazing sunsets. I cannot say enough good things about the location and the view.

The neighborhood is quiet and the small beach (much bigger during low tide) was perfect. We felt like we had our own private beach.

We found the house in good condition. It felt cozy and lived in, but also well maintained. The kitchen is big, bright, and has a great table and island for a crowd. There is a skylight that opens. We barely used the air conditioning during the day because the breeze and airflow were so good.

If I had to make any suggestions it would be to add a dehumidifier on the lower level and add a dresser to the bed rooms so guests can unpack a little easier. We stayed for 3 weeks so may have had more clothes and baby items than most people would bring.

My kids' scooters got lots of use on the dead end street but the neighborhood is pretty hilly with some narrow streets so we didn't use our bikes at all. We could have left those at home.

There is a lot to do in a short distance from the house. We went berry picking (close to the wineries) and the farms along the way to offer so much during the summer; Splish Splash water park; the quaint village of Greenport had something for everyone. Don't miss the tour of the fire boat there. We would have liked to take the ferry from Orient but had such a good time relaxing at home that we didn't get a chance.

Lastly, Shay and his family are very friendly and attentive to the home. We hope to return!

Lovely Beach House, Nice Amenities, Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed with another family here on a quick escape from the city. We had a really nice time. The house is set up perfectly for kids. My kids were excited to find plenty of toys to play with and everything felt really child friendly. The bunk beds and extra beds in the kid room were a nice bonus. We had a really nice beach day on the beach, which is about a 5 minute walk from the house. The view from the house is really spectacular, you almost feel like you are on a boat. We spent a lot of time just looking out onto the Long Island Sound. The working fireplace was perfect. The owner, Shay, was super friendly and easy to work with. I would highly recommend this house. One of our friends had an early morning flight out of LGA and was able to make it back to the city really quickly. Although you feel really far away from the hustle and bustle of New York City, you aren't too far out.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what we wanted and as described. Beautiful views of the water and other ample space for everyone to spread out. We came in with our two kids and in-laws and everyone had space to move around and lots of room to play and hang out.

The owners were fantastic and super helpful and we can't wait to come back for another visit.

Beautiful Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at this stunning home on the Sound! While the majority of our days were spent exploring the nearby wineries and beaches, when we were home, we were very relaxed and comfortable. The view off the balcony is simply breathtaking, and especially enjoyable in the morning with a nice cup of coffee. The house was exceptionally clean, welcoming, and spacious. I would highly recommend staying here!

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect home to stay in! It's a very spacious, clean, and beautiful home with an open floor plan. The view is outrageous! And just a short 5 min walk to the quiet, private beach. Great location - close to Port Jefferson and not too far from other great areas. Shay was easy to get in touch with and made sure our stay was nothing but the best. My girlfriends and I highly recommend staying here!

Wonderful views and sunsets!

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned home after a wonderful week's stay in this property and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The views from the living area and deck are amazing at all times of day, but especially sunrise and sunset (we took so many photos of these!) The accommodation is very comfortable, we made good use of the gas grill, eating on the deck each evening to a chorus of crickets and tree frogs. Every cooking utensil and all the pans and dishes you could wish for. Lots of interesting books and table tennis was enjoyed in the games room. Only criticism, maybe the linens could have been a little fresher and plugs didn't work in the bathrooms, also key holders difficult to contact, but minor compared to our overall enjoyment of this wonderful property. We feel lucky to have found it. Shay was very helpful and friendly throughout. Thank you!
