We thought the house was very comfortable and convenient to restaurants/groceries.
We had a nice time--nice open spaces in the living room and kitchen. The bedrooms were very comfortable. The beach was good walking and accessible. The weather was a little stormy so the views of the water were great! Our needs were met and our stay was enjoyed by all. The owner was very responsive when there was a slight problem--it was handled immediately.
Very cozy, yet spacious and comfortable. Lacks nothing! Owners are very responsive and easy to work with.
4th summer here!!
Once again this paradise never lets us down. The sunsets and sunrises cant be beat. Every year brings new surprises. We discovered the deer love to visit on the side of the house..Especially at night ...As well as bunnies and the mocking birds and sea gulls throughout the day... The night is always a delight with a thousand stars in the sky... Especially around the fire pit. Even though we are native long islanders, we have discovered some awesome wineries and met new friends here and have renewed our love for this great island because of our stay here. Coming back for our 5th year !!
Casual beach-side sophistication
We stayed at Sound Haven for a very cold weekend in April after a full-on week in NY and it was just what we needed: a still small voice of calm after the chaos of the Big Apple.
It's a very comfortable house with direct access to a quiet, north westerly facing beach with stunning sunsets. Food stores and other amenities are a ten minute drive away, as are some very good restaurants.
The living rooms are spacious and furnished with a beach-side, casual sophistication. The two bedrooms are a bit cramped, but there is ample storage space in the two bathrooms and the beds are very comfortable. The house is warm, once the heating has kicked in, although because it's convection heating, it is quite noisy, especially when it comes on in the morning when you're not expecting it.
The kitchen is a good size and contains basic cooking essentials, but it did lack a few basic utensils and crockery - I couldn't find any oven gloves or a cork screw (which was a shame given the proximity to local vineyards) and there was only a couple of cereal bowls.
The deck area and fire pit would be lovely but not when it's just above freezing with a northerly wind.
Contacting Jim and Liz was very easy through VRBO and they responded very quickly to my questions. We're Brits and the VRBO app isn't available on the UK app store so we had to use email for access instructions, but this wasn't a major problem.
Suffice to say that if you're looking for a quiet beach-side retreat within striking distance of New York (a 90 minute drive to JFK), then, quite simply, you need look no further.
Beautiful beach home. Clean and comfortable. Easy drive to local wineries and towns.
Great winter getaway
We were there over the New Years weekend, and while it was super cold, we had a great time hanging out by the fire. Its an amazing location and the house looks better than the pictures.
Right in the middle of the North Fork, known for its vineyards, local farms, and relaxing beaches, the house is close to many wineries, tasting rooms and other attractions. Peconic is centrally located with easy access to the Orient Point and Shelter Island Ferries.
House is on the Long Island Sound with private beach access. Also just steps from Goldsmith's Inlet.
