We fell in love with this inlet, this neighborhood, this beach, these dunes, and this home the first time we visited in 2011. We just completed a renovation in May 2014. Our house is light and spacious, with sweeping views -- timeless, tranquil and restless -- of dunes, beach and water. House sits amidst the dunes, with 300-ft private walk to secluded beach. We share a quiet friendly neighborhood along a block-long unpaved street. A minute away is Goldsmith's park, a coastal inlet perfect for tubing and wading. House includes fully-equipped kitchen, 4 bedrooms (sleeps 6-8 in beds plus a couple more on sofabed &/or air mattresses), 3 full bathrooms. Very large living area and tranquil 2nd-floor master bedroom with high ceilings and panoramic, 180-degree views of dunes, beach and water. Two bedrooms have 1 full-size bed; one bedroom has 2 full-size beds; and the master bedroom features a queen-size bed. Outdoors, you'll enjoy a spacious deck, outdoor grille, outdoor shower and private path to secluded beach. Full finished basement includes large playroom, ping-pong, elliptical exercise machine, washer/dryer. Cable, wireless, phone and stereo. Ceiling fans and great breezes throughout. Central heat and air conditioning.

                                                                  Great house, wonderful stay

                                                                  madeleine s.-

                                                                  We rented Michael and Jimena's house for a two week extended family vacation and we could not have been happier.

                                                                  The house is gorgeous and has everything you might need. Tons of space for everyone, inside and out. And all the beach toys you could want.

                                                                  The beach is beautiful and quiet and the sunsets are incredible. The north fork is a wonderful, low-key area, with a ton of activities for all ages.

                                                                  We can't wait to go back!

                                                                  Fantastic weekend by the sea

                                                                  Jeffrey C.

                                                                  We had a wonderful winter weekend by the sea with a group of friends in this spacious, welcoming home. We had enough space to be together when we wanted to - both at the long dining table, and in the gorgeous front room, surrounded by windows on three sides with vistas of the water. That main room was also great to do yoga in, and it fit us all easily. We also had spaces to retreat to when any of us wanted some quiet time. The home is beautifully furnished and equipped without being too precious - warm, inviting, eminently livable. Outside, a boardwalk path over the dunes leads to a long expanse of quiet beach, perfect for walks of any length. The place was in great shape when we arrived, and the detailed instructions really do help you navigate the various systems in the house. Michael & Jimena were gracious and communicative hosts, responding promptly to all emails and texts. We'd return again in a heartbeat!

                                                                  Beautiful house in stunning location

                                                                  Chris D.London and Manchester

                                                                  This is a wonderful house with every possible amenity for a large family or group. The property is beachfront, with easy access to a safe and shallow creek for kids to play in and explore.

                                                                  The area is really nice, lowkey but still with some excellent restaurants (North Fork Table the best of them), wineries, delis and every other amenity.

                                                                  We were a family of 6 with 4 kids under 10 and the house and location were ideal. The games room is a big plus for a young family and likewise the comprehensive selection of kayaks, both two person and three.

                                                                  The best thing of all must be the panoramic views of the Sound at the rear of the house, including 180 degrees from the master bedroom and attached office.

                                                                  And that sunset has to be seen to be believed.

                                                                  Highly recommended and Michael was incredibly helpful and responsive from start to finish.

                                                                  Incredible family bonding time, kids, crabs, kayaks, group dinners!

                                                                  Eve A.

                                                                  We had a wonderful two weeks -- our second year staying here. Terrific swimming, shady biking and marine bio discovery time for the kids, great big family dinners and fun ping pong competitions for the adults! Also loved Greenport -- the carousel, restaurants and shops, Love Lane's great selection of eateries, local farm stands (some are organic), berry picking and Briermere pies!

                                                                  To the owners and their very attentive property management team, thanks again for sharing your home during the high season, we had a fantastic time!

                                                                  Dream Beach House on Stunning North Fork Beach

                                                                  Angie C.

                                                                  Dream beach house! What a spacious and beautifully renovated home! We were blown away by the panoramic beach views, and the location directly on what seemed like a very private beach. The house is so spacious, with enough rooms to fit a large family or group, plus a long dining table for group dinners. The living room with daybed overlooking the ocean and dunes was one of our favorite spots in the house -- the upstairs with forever views was truly spectacular.

                                                                  The gorgeous deck with a large dining table overlooking the beach were a fantastic place to have our morning coffee and breakfast. There is also a rec room with ping pong and games -- plenty to do both indoors and out.

                                                                  Goldsmith's Inlet is just adjacent to the house, and is probably one of the nicest beaches on the whole North Fork, wonderful for swimming, or for phenomenal sunsets. The area is very quiet and peaceful, a true getaway.

                                                                  Michael was the most gracious host -- he answered all our questions promptly, was so pleasant to deal with, and left a large book of instructions and information on activities in the area.

                                                                  We absolutely loved our stay here, would wholeheartedly recommend it, and can't wait to return.

                                                                  Beautiful Beach House Perfect for a Getaway

                                                                  Charles K.Queens, NY

                                                                  What a magnificent house! This place is spacious, calming, and lovingly designed with panoramic, breathtaking views of the dunes and the beach. The house has several beds to host numerous guests, and the living room, dining room, basement, and deck offer plenty of spaces to relax and hang out with friends and/or family.

                                                                  We used this house for a professional retreat, and everyone noted how at home they felt right away. The house is big, but it always feels warm and welcoming. The neighborhood is quiet, the atmosphere calming, so it was very easy for us to focus on our work. The house was incredibly clean, and the instructions for entering, using, and leaving the house were crystal clear and covered everything, from towels to oven use to trash disposal. The WiFi worked great, and restaurants and amenities in Peconic and Greenport are only a short drive away. I would highly recommend this house for anyone who wants a Long Island getaway!

                                                                  Serene home amidst dunes, located directly on the beach, overlooking the Long Island Sound. Spectacular sunsets and sunrises almost every day. Private path through the dunes leads to miles of natural beach. Also located two-minute walk from Goldsmith's Inlet Park, a tidal inlet ideal for inner tubing, crayfish hunting, kids' play and daydreaming. House is located 1/2 mile from closest convenience store and post office; 1.5 miles from closest small town, Southold; and 10 miles from Greenport, the nearest substantial town, with galleries, upscale dining, shopping, movie theater, marina and even a free old-fashioned merry-go-round.
