About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 baths w/ pool and patio, close to Long Island Sound. Sleeps six

Our home is a rambling ranch set in a very quiet residential neighborhood, with a beautiful and spacious pool and patio. It's perfect for hours spent swimming and relaxing, and barbecuing on the gas grill at poolside. 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 Long Island

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,

A beautiful and quiet retreat on Long Island's North Shore
average rating of 5.0 based on 9 reviews

Very Comfortable and Great Owners. A very Pleasant Vacation location.

  • 5 of 5

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).

Excellent accomodation

  • 5 of 5

The photographs do not do this house full justice.

There is lots of space within the house and the pool and garden area provide lots of space for children to play.

All amenities provided within for a family holiday. Beach within walking distance. Horace friendly and helpful.

We had a lovely relaxing break.

In a word - AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

The backyard set up with pool and mature foliage is even nicer than the pictures show. The house is fully stocked. Linen closets were full including many beach towels, plenty of kitchen supplies and toiletries. The washer and dryer made it a breeze to keep up with my familes never ending dirty clothes. Also, the local pizza place was amazing and had fast delivery. My only regret was that we did not check out the beach because we were having too much fun in the pool. We will be back next year!

First class villa

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time at this villa, and I can honestly say that from the beginning Horace was always available to discuss various questions we had. The villa its self is clean and well kept, our party of 4, so there was plenty of room, the pool was brilliant and our boys spent most of their time in it, we also used the BBQ or a regular basis. The villa is well located for the winery's, beach and shops. We would have no hesitation in booking this villa again.

I loved this house! The backyard, pool and grill were fabulous. The house had all the amenities we needed for our summer vacation, and was very clean! The owner is super nice, helpful and accommodating. We will definitely rent again:)
