Why Niamh OSullivan chose Long Island

The house has great views and is a serene spot for us when we want to get away from the city.

What makes this house unique

Mastic Beach is quite near the Hamptons without the Hamptons prices. Likewise for Fire Island. By staying in Mastic Beach you can do great day trips all over long island, take the ferry to fire island (30 mins away) , drive or take a short train ride to the hamptons (30 mins to 1 hr 30 mins depending on where you are going, east or west hampton etc), or drive into the center of manhattan in 1 hour and 20 mins.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely time, the house is beautiful and quiet! Very convenient drive to the beach. Most amenities were supplied by the house. It was great to have a grill to use and the kitchen was nice to cook and dine in! Thank you!

Overall great place

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed my stay here! Only taking off a star because the sheets on the sofa bed were unwashed and kind of gross and my friends who slept there said the bed was very uncomfortable. Otherwise great place, the owners were wonderful and very responsive!

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for the review Jonathan. Hope to see you back again next summer. We actually don't advertise the sofa bed for use at all and recommend the extra queen mattress in the smaller bedroom upstairs which we provide for guests. The cleaner didnt realize the sofa bed had been used for this reason and as it has a large cover over it hadn't check it unfortunately. I hope you guys took the additional fresh sheets which are provided in the closet by the downstairs bathroom. I've asked the cleaner to check it in future and to put a note up not to use the sofa and to use the additional queen mattress upstairs (the smaller bedroom has two queen mattresses on the one bed )

Good time - mix up with dates

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a good experience in the house. The managers were responsive to email and text, which was helpful throughout the stay. However, there was a BIG misunderstanding regarding the dates of our stay, which cost us a full day. If you sign a lease be sure to also confirm the dates with the landlord in an email.

Owner's Response: I'm delighted you had a good time and thanks for your kind comments on our helpfulness. All our homeaway correspondence, our inital reply, the payment request and payment receipt all had the correct dates. The payment request from Homeaway also tells you the dates you are booking when you are paying for the booking. If it says for instance Pay Now for June 10th to June 17th in the homeaway system then those are the dates you are going to be booking by hitting accept and making the payment. Homeaway then blocked off those dates on the homeaway site as booked. It was a pity it happened and I'm glad you enjoyed the rest of your stay.

Wonderful, peaceful and spacious home with amazing water views!!!

  • 5 of 5

There were four of us in the house for 4 nights and we left wishing we could stay longer. The location is quiet, right by the water with such beautiful views. It was joyful to wake up to those views from the bedroom windows.

The house is comfortable..you can just sink into it and relax. We had planned activities during the days away from the house while we were there, but ended up wishing we had more time to spend at the home. It's well-equipped with everything you need. It was big enough for all of us to gather together and to also have our own space and quiet time if we needed that.

Thanks to the owners, Eoin and Niamh, who graciously rented the home to us on such short notice. We can't thank you enough!!

The home is in a great location, with easy access to main roads leading to everywhere on the Island. There are plenty of places for shopping and eating closeby.

Highly recommended!!

Recent Stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay on Mastic Beach at the Architectural Bayview House. There was plenty of room for our guests and the accommodations were everything we expected. The house was easy to locate, well-maintained, and the owners were helpful and responsive. We were fortunate to be located by the bay with the breeze because the temperatures were higher than normal during our stay. But we had easy access to anything we needed---including groceries, fishing gear, and the beach!! I would recommend this house to other travelers.

Beautiful views, very well priced

  • 4 of 5

A group of 10 adults stayed here for labor day weekend. The views were incredible, the deck and grill was awesome. We cooked every meal and had such a great time. The kitchen was large enough to accommodate many cooks.

A quick drive to Smith point beach and it was such an escape from the city. The house is nestled down a dead end road, so you definitely had your privacy.

Even though the house is a bit older, you can't beat the price. The owners were very responsive and gave us a detailed guide of the area. We would love to come again. Thank you Eoin and Niamh.

great views, reasonable accomodations

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay at this property on a two night weekend. The view from the deck is fantastic and we enjoyed clear bay and moon views, including from the bedrooms. The house was clean and had a generous number of towels and linens. The owner was very responsive and available by phone and email. There were also cooking utensils so that we could prepare breakfast etc. Although the furniture is sparse (not full of furniture or decorations), it had everything we needed, i.e. beds, seating, tables, storage, and ultimately made it easy to pack our things and tidy up on departure.

Although the town of the property does not have too many dining or entertainment options, the owners have an in depth guide of nearby beaches, towns, and where to get items like groceries etc, and we ended up having very quick access to multiple nice beaches. Likewise, it is not a 'luxury' destination, although the water views and deck definitely make it stand out and outshine the other factors. In the end, our whole group agreed - it's a great value (distance from city, water views, responsiveness, and good layout of house). Recommended.

Surrounded by beautiful Fire Island National Seashore Reserve. Wi-Fi internet and cable. Fire Island beach (4 miles) and great walking trails thru the sunken forest on Fire Island. Great area for fishing and crabbing. For boaters, boat docking slips available at marina nearby. West Hampton beach is less than a 10 min boat ride or 25 min drive. Mastic Station is on the direct Montauk train line if considering a day trip to Montauk and not driving.

For tourists wanting to check out Manhattan, it’s an hour and 20 minutes to midtown by car or 1 hour 40 mins on the train from the local train station (Mastic Shirley Stn). 40 mins to Tanger Outlet Mall.
