This was our third year spending a week at Hyatt House. It's perfect in every way. The house is both beautiful and also really easy for a family like ours with little kids. The location is perfect. perfect. perfect. Right across from a small, calm beach. And the support -- the cleaners, the person to contact if you have questions -- are also great. Perfect.

Hyatt House will be our new summertime destination

  • 5 of 5

Hyatt House quite easily lived up to the description and comments. A lovely, renovated cottage with a layout oriented to the 180 degree unobstructed view of the LI Sound, it comfortably sleeps about 9. The private beach is steps from the back door. The kitchen met all basic needs. Lovely, fully stocked pantry. Outdoor shower is heavenly. Those living in the Pawson Park community are a very friendly bunch. I wholeheartedly recommend a stay at Hyatt and I am already looking at the 2018 summer calendar in the hope of a return. Many thanks.

A very special place

  • 5 of 5

Hyatt House is a very special place. It is a charming, historic beach house which has been lovingly renovated and maintained. Indeed, the amenities are numerous; Martin and his staff have not forgotten anything. The kitchen is extremely well-equipped; the house is open, airy and comfortable; the front porch facing the water is one of the most relaxing places I have ever experienced; and the central AC made everything better, every day we were there. Greg, the property manager, was extremely responsive when I accidentally locked myself out one morning, getting back to me within 15 minutes and solving the problem shortly thereafter. We loved the beach out in front, the swimming area with raft and diving board, and the lovely surrounding neighborhood. We look forward to coming back for a longer visit next summer. Thank you, Martin!

This was our second stay at Hyatt house. Our grown children and their families, a total of nine, fit in to the house with no problem. We have felt very much at home in the house from the beginning. The beach is wonderful for everyone, front screened in porch is the best place to sit anytime of day( my husband actually slept out there a couple nights and loved it), outdoor shower the best, I don't think anyone took a shower inside, the beds are comfortable and room for all at the dining room table. The kitchen may be small but we manage just fine and has everything you'll need. Only thing we missed was some seating in the back yard for barbecues on the grill. Also be prepared for a long walk from the driveway to the house when unloading or loading your car. A wagon of some sort would be helpful if you can fit one in.

Don't forget to check out The Stand across from Lenny's. Good barbecue and an easy walk in the morning to have a cup of coffee and some yummy sweet bread or a great breakfast sandwich from the food truck. Not to mention the fresh veggies. We look forward to making this our annual family vacation spot. Thx Martin!

Historic house on the beach

  • 5 of 5

The house is charming and beautifully maintained. A gardener comes every other day to tend the landscaping. We especially enjoyed the airy kitchen, screened in front porch with direct beach view, the outdoor shower, and the attic bedroom. The second-level bedrooms are modestly sized. The house is in front of a small road, which you can cross to a lovely sand and pebble beach with a diving board and swimming dock, where we spent a lot of time. Martin and his property manager keep the house bright and clean, and you'll feel cared for the moment you step in the house. We stayed with three generations and a dog, and everyone enjoyed. Note for elders: the staircase has steep steps.
