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

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 pool and a quiet beach just an easy walk down the street. The street is extremely quiet, even during the most popular weekends.

Peaceful North Fork retreat

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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!

Wonderful Greenport Location

  • 5 of 5

After 50 years, our family returned to the Greenport/Orient area for a family reunion. The house has been tastefully updated. The ceramic and tile in the two baths and kitchen was first class. The house was well equipped and clean on arrival. Th location is perfect ... nice view across to Shelter Island, close to downtown Greenport, but far enough to be very peaceful.

The house was PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

for two couples enjoying a long weekend in Long Island Wine Country. There is also a 3rd BR with twin beds. House was spotless, beds were comfortable, kitchen was modern, etc, etc. Quiet quiet location 200 feet from the bay. Cant beat this rental!

This house was very lovely!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is very beautiful and the owners are a pleasure. Easy to communicate with.. We did a girls trip to the Northfork, our group was 6. This house was perfect fit for our group, very clean, and exactly as described and shown in pictures. The location is great, near the water, main street and all the vineyards!!!

Felt Like Home

  • 4 of 5

My brothers and I grew up three towns away in Mattituck so this area is home. That being said, coming back 30 years later, for our sister's birthday; felt like we never left!

The house immediately feels comfortable. The back yard is beautiful and a perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening or your morning coffee.

The house is decorated tastefully, bedrooms a nice size and kitxhen and living areas as well. But again, if the weather is as beautiful as it was for us - you'll never want to leave the backyard! And be sure to take short walk down to the beautiful little beach! Perfect view of Shelter Island - so peaceful and serene! You'll be happy you chose this house for your visit to paradise!!

A Great Girls Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Chris and Kelly's lovely home. The house is extremely well-appointed and everything seems brand new. The backyard is a great place to relax, and the house was perfectly sized for our party of 6. The neighborhood is quiet, but close to so many fun places - wineries, town, shops/restaurants, the beach, etc. The only thing we really wished the house had was a full-length mirror (perhaps we are a bit more vain than the average beach goer, haha). Highly recommend this home for a girls weekend or getaway with friends!

Owner's Response: Thank you for a great review. We appreciate your comment about the full length mirrors, and we now have them hanging behind the closet doors. Thank you for letting us know so we can correct the problem. They will be there next time you 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.
