About Chris & Kelly
Our family grew up on Long Island and we live and work locally now. We love to travel ourselves, so we understand the needs and expectations of travelers. Being local, we are very knowledgeable about the area, including attractions, restaurants, bars, etc.
Chris & Kelly purchased this House in 2015
Why Chris & Kelly chose Greenport West
Our family purchased this home because we are in love with the North Fork and all it has to offer. We have been coming to the North Fork since we were children and have always dreamed of having a home that we can use to get away from life's stresses and demands. We are now a family with young children and we love spending time with them at the house. It's the perfect home for families.
What makes this House unique
We feel our home offers a unique combination of location, amenities, and seclusion. We are one of the few homes in the area that offers a heated pool and a quiet beach just an easy walk down the street. The street is extremely quiet, even during the most popular weekends.

We had a lovely stay at The Island View House. The house is well laid out, comfortable and fully equipped! It was great being in walking distance to the water and the pool was a bonus. Wish the hot tub in the picture was working, and that we kept the garbage in the shed at night as the racoons were pretty loud and messy. Also the neighbors on the porch side are very close and thus privacy can be an issue if they are out on their deck. Overall we were very happy and definitely recommend this property!
Great place with a lovely backyard and pool setup! House is right near the water and a quick 10 minute drive to town. Would stay again!
The house was clean, well stocked and very comfortable for 5 adults. The house was bright and more roomy than it might appear from the outside. The location was great and we enjoyed walks along the nearby beach. Proximity to shopping in Greenport and Southold was a plus. Unfortunately we couldn't enjoy the nice pool because of the time of year, but we're sure the side porch and backyard are a real plus in the warmer weather.
It was very clean and well stocked! It was a great house for our stay!
We had a wonderful time and the house was perfect!
Thank you again for choosing to stay with us. It was a pleasure to host you. Please come back anytime!
All the best,
Kelly & Chris
Great place for a family.
Loved the house and heated pool, proximity to beaches and quick travel to Greenport and vineyards. Would definitely go back.

Peaceful North Fork retreat
We had a wonderful break at the property. The owners were very good to communicate with. Set in a quiet neighborhood, mere minutes from a very scenic beach, the house was fantastic for a break from the city. Great pool, and lots of outdoor furniture and a grill, it is perfect for sunny days. The house itself is spacious, clean and has was very comfortable. House also supplied a wheel cart with beach chairs, buckets and spade etc, very handy.
Only negatives were the property is not as private as the pictures might suggest, as the open garden and pool is overlooked by the neighbors. Other note if you are paying $175 on clean fee you don't then expect to have to drive 20 minutes there and back, and wait 10 mins in line to deposit of your trash at the local refuse, which is quite inconvenient if staying over a longer period with a packed car, multiple trips are necessary.
Overall, we had a fantastic stay, our two year old enjoyed splashing in the pool and going to the beach every day and the house and surroundings are wonderful. Recommended for a peaceful and relaxing break by the beach.
Thank you very much for the review. You were great guests and we would love to host you again! We really appreciate the constructive feedback and we are very sorry about the garbage disposal and the privacy along the one side of the house.
Starting in October 2017, we will be offering garbage disposal as an added convenience for our guests. We agree, this is certainly not something that a vacationer should have to deal with!
We also agree that while our property, and the neighborhood as a whole, is very peaceful and quiet, privacy along the one side of the property can be improved. The 2018 season will offer our guests improved privacy, as we have planted border shrubs that will provide a better screen than the existing fence does on its own.
Thanks again for choosing to stay with us!
Our home is centrally located on the North Fork, yet away from it all. We are on a very quiet dead end street that is faced on one side by the bay and the other side by woods. Within a 10 minute drive is the bustling Greenport village, a wide variety of highly rated restaurants, grocery stores, several beaches, wineries, breweries, etc.
