Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Saint James - Lovely Long Island Home

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Beautiful 4 bedroom 2 bath Long Island home nestled in the historic village of Saint James on the North Shore. This space is the main floor of a ranch house located a convenient 60 miles away from New York City but a world away in vacation experience. It is easily accessible by car or train.

The house is on 3 acres of land, secluded from the local road by a long driveway, and surrounded by woods. There is a spacious living room, a separate dining room with seating for 8, and a large, warm eat-in kitchen. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and a separate, enclosed porch and veranda. Two other bedrooms have full size beds and a fourth bedroom has a pair of twin beds perfect for kids. The home has lots of light and free WiFi. Other amenities include hardwood floors, a wood burning fireplace, an outdoor grill, spacious lawns for kids to play or just to soak up the sun.

The house is located about 5 minutes from local beaches which border the Long Island Sound. The surf is quiet, the sand is white, and the beaches stretch for miles. Lots of watersports, including sailing, windsurfing, fishing and canoeing are available nearby. Nearby horse farms offer horseback riding and nearly every road in the village is great for bicycling.

From home, it's an easy trip to the Hamptons for shopping and ogling celebrities, Montauk Point for a deep sea fishing expedition, or Jones Beach to listen to an open air concert. There also excellent shopping at the Smithhaven Mall (about a 10 minute drive) and a host of other discount outlets that dot Long Island's North Shore. Other fun activities include in-season strawberry and pumpkin picking at local farms, browsing local yard sales on the weekends, visiting Robert Moses State Park or Fire Island for a dip in the ocean.

One of the pleasures of the Long Island experience is the local dining and shops. Multiple excellent and innovative restaurants are within a 10 minute drive and the village of Saint James, a mile away, provides easy access to everything you might need to make your stay more enjoyable, including supermarket, pharmacy, bakery, post office and ice cream shop.

This quiet home is great for a weekend or midweek getaway from the craziness of urban life. It is also perfect for a summer retreat of sand, sea, & sun. The space available for a stay is the main floor of the ranch home. There is a separate apartment in the lower level which has it's own entrance and is not for rent. There is a shared washer & dryer on the lower level.

About Estela

My husband & I live in New York City with our two daughters and love to travel.

Why Estela chose USA

This house has been used as a summer home and weekend getaway in my family for years. We live in New York City (about 75 minutes away) and spend lots of weekends at the house with the kids gping to the beach or browsing the yard sales. It is an antidote to high stress living, close to both New York & the Hamptons. The huge yard is very secluded and the experience is peaceful.

What makes this house unique

Spacious, secluded home that provides a relaxing weekend and summertime getaway. Easily accomodates 8 people in 4 bedrooms with 2 baths. Just a 75 minute drive or train ride from NY City. Near gentle beaches off the Long Island Sound. Short drive to the Hamptons, Montauk Point for fishing, or Jones Beach for concerts. Excellent shopping and restaurants near by.

Pleasant property

  • 4 of 5

7 of us - adults, 5 pensioners and 2 younger adults, all family, -stayed at Estela's property while attending a wedding on Long Island. We found the property pleasant. The high spots were the amazing collections of vinyl ( suits us oldies) and books in the living room, which was comfortably and smartly furnished. The dining room and kitchen were well equipped. The bathrooms were dated but fine .

The main bedroom was lovely and had a verandah and telescope, which was an interesting touch!

The 3 other bedrooms were spartan - some soft furnishing or some pictures on the wall - something to make the bedrooms a little less perfunctory and more homely , would have been welcome. I can imagine that a younger group or a family with children using the house as a base for a beach holiday may not mind but , for us, the addtiional bedrooms were a disappointment. We did not use the lower floor room.

Estela was extremely prompt in providing a new security number for the door when the one we had proved to be for 24 hours, rather than our full stay, as we had been told.

The house was clean and everything we used, worked.

Very large house with plenty of room. Large grounds with plenty of chairs for everyone.

Nice quiet area to stay as well , but only minutes from shops, restaurants and bars if needed.

Beautifully secluded!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a week we had at this BEAUTIFUL secluded spot right on the canal! We brought a party of 9 people and we had plenty of room in and outside the house for all of us! The boat was a great time too! Jim is a very nice man who keeps this property very well maintained and stocked bait for fishing! Thanks for everything Jim! We will return!

Great home in Smithtown area.

  • 4 of 5

We just enjoyed a week's stay here. There were 4 adults and two young children with plenty of room for all of us and everything we needed for the week. The home is just as it appears on the website. Enjoyed Sunken Meadow state park and Smithtown Landing pool. Uncle Guiseppi grocery store was a real thrill for Italian food lovers.

Estela was quickly available for any questions we had. We were gathering for a family reunion and this worked out perfectly for us. I would highly recommend it.

We really enjoyed staying in this home. Very clean, great beds, ample kitchen and very pretty neighborhood. Beach was close by. (Tell the guards you're renting in the area). Good restaurants and bagel shop nearby.

All in all I recommend this property very much.
