Our home is a rambling ranch set in a very quiet residential neighborhood, with a beautiful and spacious pool and patio.

The pool features a salt water chlorination system that lets you swim in fresh, spring-like water with no chlorine smell. In addition, we are just a five minute walk from a private beach club on Long Island Sound which is available to our guests. The house is ideal for a family with 2-3 children. It features a large master bedroom with a queen-size bed and its own bath, two smaller guest rooms, and a full-size hall bathroom. The dining and entertainment area is expansive with a modern eat-in kitchen, a family room, large dining and living rooms, and flat-screen TVs with cable in the family room and living room. The house also has broadband Wi-Fi service. There is a one-car garage and a large driveway. Nearby are many great golf courses, state parks, North Fork vineyards, and the Tanger Outlet Mall, which is in Riverhead, only 15 minutes away.

About Horace Barker
Hi. We are Horace Barker and Christine Govan, and we welcome you to our beautiful getaway on Long Island.
Why Horace Barker chose Sound Beach
When we chose this home we looked for a semi-rural area that was beautiful, yet quiet and unpretentious. We wanted to be less than a two hour drive from NYC, and close to recreational activities such as golf, beach-going and fishing. We spend many happy times here just relaxing and enjoying the company of family and friends.
What makes this House unique
The best thing that our house offers is the chance to relax, rest and enjoy yourself quietly in proximity to a wide range of fun activities in the are of eastern Long Island,

Great location for exploring Long Island
This home has everything you need and you'll feel right at home on your a family vacation. Everything is very clean and well maintained. A beautiful heated pool to relax in after a day of sight seeing is a plus while grilling fresh seafood on the high end gas grill. The owner even has a nice supply of plush thick beach towels to use after swimming. The kitchen is well stocked with all the utensils, pots, and pans you would need for preparing a nice dinner. Having two flat screen tvs was also a bonus. No arguments about what to watch. A lovely private beach is within walking distance if you prefer to walk instead of driving. There is variety of things to do within an hours drive. Long Island Aquarium, The Whaling Museum, and Port Jefferson has some lovely shops. Horace was always quick to respond to our questions and made sure we had everything we needed while renting his home. We felt very welcomed upon our arrival with his hand written note telling us to enjoy our stay. We would recommend his home to our family and friends if they visit Long Island.
A most wonderful experience
My wife and two kids spent the whole month of July on this house. It was wonderful. The comfortable house, the heated pool, the proximity to the North Fork, the nearby beach on the Long Island sound, the easy occasional trip back to the city, the wonderful host... everything was perfect. We will return for another memorable summer vacation.
The pool and patio was terrific!
We really enjoyed our stay - we spent most of our time in the backyard. It could be improved a bit by putting more bushes or a fence on the property line on the non diving board side of the pool, but not that big a deal. we had a great stay! The beach was great too! good for families with children as there is a playground above the beach.
Beautiful Home with lovely pool in a perfect location.
We felt so at home during our stay. Loved the lay out of this cozy place with a spacious kitchen and space for each of us to stretch out and chill. Our only regret was that we didn't have time to fire up the grill or lay by the pool. But we will be back!
Exactly what we were looking for!
Our annual trip to Long Island to gather family members for several days. We had never used HomeAway before but decided to try it as this time we were looking for a convenience and freedom we can't get at a hotel. The ability to prepare family meals for example. This was it. Spacious accommodations with nice amenities, in an area with rich history to explore. Horace was great to work with, as was HomeAway, he was available to answer questions and was very accommodating. We would absolutely stay here again. We knew that since we were traveling early this year the pool was not yet open for the season. Next time we would take advantage of the pool. Anita & Bill
Very Comfortable and Great Owners. A very Pleasant Vacation location.
Our visit was planned so that we could visit with family that we haven't seen for about 12 years. The house was very comfortable for the four adults staying there. The owners could not have been more pleasant responding to all of our questions. The house was very well equipped and had a beautiful heated swimming pool and BBQ grill with plenty of chairs to lounge on. The Roku box which provides Netflix movies entertained us in the evening. The private beach which was provided was very nice, but can be very difficult for the elderly or handicap to negotiate the long stairway from the parking lot. I would highly recommend this house and will hope that I can come back again in the near future (hopefully less then 12 years).
Our quiet and relaxing home has a beautiful heated pool with a saltwater treatment system and an expansive patio. We are one-and-a-half hours from New York City, and are located 15 minutes from the North Fork -- Long Island's famous Wine Country. We are less than a quarter mile from Long Island Sound and our guests have access to the Tides Beach Club, which is for residents of our development. We are close to many top notch golf courses, and 15 minutes away from the Tanger Outlet Malls in Riverhead. It takes only 45 minutes to reach the Town of Westhampton, and we are an hour and 15 minutes from Southampton and Sag Harbor.
