Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Long Island - Waterfront Heaven

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps up to 10 + 2 kids.

Located on the bluff with amazing views of the Long Island Sound around the year - This is our Waterfront Heaven.

Set in a quiet neighborhood, the house is located on the bluff, about 85 feet above sea level.

The house is facing the sea and the views are breathtaking.

Conveniently located only about 1:20 min drive (60 miles) from Manhattan. 25 min. from the Hampton crowd. Weather you're coming to visit family in the area, attending a wedding / event at Inn & Spa East Wind Long Island (15 min. drive), Going on Vineyard Tour in the North Fork Wineries (20-30 min. drive) or simply want to enjoy the beach and the views, our house offers the perfect setting.

The beach in our town, along the north shore of long island, is one of the cleanest and most beautiful in the area. It is stretches for miles with no interruptions - true heaven for nature, sea life and birds. Views and scenery is beautiful around the entire year. Fishing, kayaking (FREE use of our double seat kayak!), sailing, surfing, swimming, bird watching, fly your kites....visit the nearby Wineries and Farms and much more. Watch the seals, cook in a fully equipped kitchen, watch movies / YouTube / play games on our Smart TV and warm up by the fireplace in the winter....or just relax with a good book. Wake up and fall asleep with the sound of the waves.

The Architect / Owner has renovated the house in 2007 and added a new house addition in 2014, separated by a door at the lower level common wall between the this rental unit and the adjacent one (complete privacy is provided between the two units). This rental unit has a very functional open floor plan on the main entry level and another full level below it.

The Living / Dining / Kitchen spaces are all on the main entry floor, opening up to a deck which wraps around the house - all facing the sea. The house interior is simply and beautifully decorated with clean and simple lines, still keeping the space airy and cozy.

Best View!

  • 5 of 5

"Wow!" and "What a view!" are the first words from all of us as we walked into this house. The expansive view of the Sound from every room and from the large deck is spectacular.

We've been renting vacation homes every Summer and Winter for the past ten years and this house has the best view by far. Watching the sunrise and sunset over the water everyday was truly magical.

The house is spacious and compfortable, and has everything you could need for cooking, games, a ping pong table, a play yard for children with a slide and swings, TV, BBQ grill, and lots of towels.

The beach is less than a block away, and although it's the pebbley type, we enjoyed swimming and the fact that there were no crowds. We also rented a Kayak from the house and that was a winner.

The house is in a very quiet and friendly residental area. At night, you will only hear the waves and crickets. Forget about traffic sounds, car radios, and a loud party next door, you can really relax here.

Shay was very helpful throughout our stay there. He made sure that we felt at home and always promptly replied to our requests and questions. (Thanks for making our family get- together such a great time and rejuvenating all of us on this vacation.)

We plan to return!!!

Happy Family

Wonderful views and sunsets!

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned home after a wonderful week's stay in this property and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The views from the living area and deck are amazing at all times of day, but especially sunrise and sunset (we took so many photos of these!) The accommodation is very comfortable, we made good use of the gas grill, eating on the deck each evening to a chorus of crickets and tree frogs. Every cooking utensil and all the pans and dishes you could wish for. Lots of interesting books and table tennis was enjoyed in the games room. Only criticism, maybe the linens could have been a little fresher and plugs didn't work in the bathrooms, also key holders difficult to contact, but minor compared to our overall enjoyment of this wonderful property. We feel lucky to have found it. Shay was very helpful and friendly throughout. Thank you!

Great stay...in a great property!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay with our young children: We found every children amenity, we were so close to the beach, Cristina and Shay were always available, ...

We do recommend this property and would be happy to come back.

Wonderful weekend in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

I can't imagine a better way to spend a weekend than amongst friends at this gorgeous waterfront property. Pictures can't do the view justice: it was incredible! Like you're floating above the bay... The house was very well maintained and had plenty of room. We didn't have children with us, but it would be a great place for kiddos (lots of toys, a toddler bed, and a crib).

The owner was very responsive and so helpful- we couldn't have been happier!

THIS IS WHAT MY BEACH HOUSE WOULD LOOK LIKE…

  • 5 of 5

Four top things about this house: (1) DREAMY SEA VIEWS. spectacular, breathtaking view - watching the sea through the windows while you cook or right in front of you sitting outside is priceless. The owners put in speakers in the outside deck, so you can listen to music while watching the sunset outside / cook on the grill. (2) FAMILY FRIENDLY. a nice room for the kids with toys included too, so you don’t even have to bring your own, they can discover what is there, and there is a crib, a small bed and a futon in the kids room. Our younger one really liked the swings & slides in the yard which is right next to the garage, kept him busy going up and down the slide. there is a garden and deck overlooking the view in the first level, so also a nice place to have some privacy from the family if you are traveling with a bigger group (we took my parents and they stayed in the upper level with the kids, we stayed downstairs). (3) TWO FIREPLACES. There are several dimensions to the house and ambiances: (i) upstairs in the kitchen/ living room area, there is a fireplace which we found very nice to use while we were cooking/ having dinner/ hanging out in the living room; (ii) downstairs in the play room which has another living room (with a comfy sofa), a flat screen/ smart tv including netflix and even a ping pong table, there is another fireplace, which actually sits in a wall right between the play room and the main guestroom – so you also have a fireplace in your room. (4) THE BOOK COLLECTION. great books all over the house – lots related to art, architecture, and travel, but also interesting and random books including an entire Hebrew collection for those that can read it, and a few in Spanish too. Very diverse.…

I travel frequently for business so really appreciate the comfort, so to speak, of vacationing at a place that feels like your own home. The owners have put a lot of love into the place, and it really feels like you are staying at a good friend´s house rather than renting a place. It is well kept, even has a little garden in the back with herbs that you can use to cook and a swing set with a slide which was great for the kids. The owners just built a house next door so I guess that helps them keep the property in top shape. They have great taste in decoration, too – a lot of character and most importantly for me, very homey.

Only downside I saw were the bathrooms – very simple, and the master bedro

Great view, but overall experience could have been better

  • 3 of 5

Stayed here for a low key bachelorette and it was just what we needed, but there were some things that could have been better:

-Very difficult to get into the house. Door/lock is very jammed.

-because of this, we left the door unlocked when we were out for a few hours...and came back to it locked. This made is uncomfortable as our personal belongings were in the house, but the owner obviously was checking in on us.

-Owner was always around as they were working on a (separate) extension of the house. This would have been fine if the people sleeping in the basement didn't have to sleep through a bright light coming through the basement door at 1am. Owner never said hi nor asked how everything was.

-Felt pretty unclean and very lived in. Paid a mandatory cleaning fee and was still asked to clean and strip beds before departure. Little available linens and the tiki torches didn't work.

-ZERO cell service for AT&T and Verizon.

-Beach was nice, but felt like intruders as it's very community based

-Downstairs shower was only cold and not usable

Other than that, Shay was professional through email and was quick to return the deposit.

Owner's Response: Sorry for any inconvenience. We just recently completed the construction of a new house addition adjacent to the house and during the construction period (which has been completed since), dust made its way into the house. Unfortunately None of the above issues were brought to our attention during or after this group stay. Just checked shower downstairs and it is working perfectly with hot and cold water. We also have outdoor shower with hot and cold water (if this is the one referred to - we just used it as well and is in perfect condition). Not sure about the lock problem - checked as well with renters that came in after this group and with maintenance person - they didn't have a problem. If issue repeat we will replace the lock - we want to make sure that everyone feels safe and secure. Yes, sometimes the cell phone reception is weak (AT&T is actually better than the others), but this is beyond our control. We do provide and allow our guests to use our Skype phone in the house at no charge. The beach is indeed very private and is community based, but everyone is friendly and welcoming. During the guests stay I am usually not around, but the maintenance person is. If I am, I try to let the renter keep their privacy, not to intrude. If there is ANY issue that arises during your stay, myself or the maintenance person will always get back to you to address it in a timely manner. Always more than happy to introduce myself. Please bring up issues as soon as they appear / arise so that we could make your stay pleasant and enjoyable. All the best, Shay
