About Dianne Lloyd

My husband and I are married 35 years, we grew up in Rockville Centre, Long Island and went to school there, lived in Long Beach for about 10 years and move to Suffolk County 25 years ago. I worked in Oceanside as a hairdresser for nearly 30 years and we owned a beautiful litlle hair salon, Shekinah Hair Salon in Oceanside. My husband worked for Mercedes Benz in RVC and Westbury Jeep before going into the ministry. We have 8 children, his, hers, ours and everyone elses. We have 15 grand children, four of which are great grand children.

We are both in the ministry, my husband is an Assistant Pastor of a church in Suffolk County and Executive Director of a coalition to protect women, children and families in the sexualized culture. I assist him in this great work and still work as a hairdresser part-time to a very private clientele.

Dianne Lloyd purchased this cottage in 1971

Why Dianne Lloyd chose Long Island

My husband bought this house before we married as an investment and rented it our for 5 years until we moved into it after getting married. I always loved Long Beach and lived there since I left home and went on my own.

I love the beach, the board walk, the smell of the air at night, the stars in the sky over the water and the summer breeze of the ocean.

My husband never like the area so when the opportunity came we built a house in Suffolk with alot of property a pool, trees and across from a farm.

We rented our beach-house long term and had terrible experience with tenants for years. Then came along Super Storm Sandy and our little home nearly blew away.

Well, between the tenant and Sandy we decided to not rent long term any more. We repaired the house, painted and furnished it quickly and decided to use it for family, friends and ministry.

That is what we were doing with some success, then we were introduced to Homeaway and we thought we would open up our little beach house to those that would like to get away and enjoy the City by the Sea.

What makes this cottage unique

This house was my first house and its like a life size doll house to me. Its cozy and comfortable and different than the very hi-tech hotels or houses with great rooms and cathedral ceilings.

Sunny days at the beach, power walking or bicycling on the board walk and strolls on the beach on a warm summer night with a majestic star studded sky, you cant beat it!

Perfect family get away

  • 4 of 5

This home is a perfect getaway for families, especially with small children because there is a lovely, fenced in back yard. Our grandchildren really enjoyed it. The owner has thoughtfully left toys and bikes for your use. It's a bit of a walk to the beach, about 7 blocks, but a beautiful beach and boardwalk awaits when you get there. Stores and restaurants are also within walking distance.

Owner's Response: We pretty much cater to small families as it is a quiet, family friendly neighborhood with young children. It is walking distance to the Bay and Beach. On the bay is a more private bicycle path with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. In addition, you have the pier, the Rec Center, indoor pool, skate park, out door basket ball, baseball, and even a doggy park! Did I mention the indoor ice rink? The beach with all its amenities is just blocks way. We have been fortunate to have very professional, respectful guests who leave the house in great condition.

Wonderful stay, would love to come back

What a lovely, comfortable home! The host left lots of details letting us know where to find the beach passes, towels, and more.

She was very responsive if we had any questions.

It was just right for our needs, with a lovely backyard and grill that we took advantage of nearly every night.

We will be back!

Owner's Response: I cant stress enough that the families we have as guests have been a delight! They neighborhood lends it self to these families, having everything a stone throw away. Not too much traffic, a dairy barn on the corner, the beach and bay a few blocks away and restaurants all over the place.

Owner's Response: We get rave reviews, we are always so happy to host the guests referred by HOMEAWAY! We keep it clean and cozy and stock it with every amenity we would like. Personally I love the outside shower, keeps the sand out side and it has hot and cold running water. The 6 bicycles are a plus too. We are central to everything, beach, bay, restaurants, LIRR all walking distance. I can go on and on. Come try it you'll love it too!

wonderful holiday experience

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

The place was amazing. The house was clean, cozy and comfortable. It was nicely decorated and fully furnished and equipped. The location was really close to everything, short walk to store, beach and LIRR. The neighborhood was very nice and we felt safe as well. Dianne was very sweet and friendly. Special touches like cookies, wine and beautiful holiday decorations made it extra special. Our stay was very very pleasant and would highly recommend to all. Thank you again Dianne.

Peach of a Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

My family of 6 had a great stay at this cottage the end of September! There are 3 nice bedrooms, plus a futon in the front room/office. My husband and I took the back bedroom off the kitchen and bath because we are usually the first ones up, so did not have to worry about disturbing the others. Everything was as described and pictured, very cozy and comfortable, plus a back deck and yard. Our son and his wife drove down separately, and could always find parking close to the property. Dianne was very pleasant and helpful. I would definitely recommend!

Owner's Response: Another satisfied guest! Its not a mistake, alot of thought and planning go into making our guests feel comfortable and relaxed. A quick walk to the bay or the ocean and you'll enjoy the roaring surf or a beautiful sunset. One block up and you are on your way to fine dining or just a casual snack. Open all year round our cozy Lil beach house is available for family visiting during all the holidays, spring and winter breaks or... a wedding, birthday or reunion. Much to our surprise all our guests treat our home with great care and leave it as beutiful as they found it! Thank you!
