About Valerie Downing

I lived in the US Virgin Islands for 17 years and when I had to relocate back to NY decided I had to try to find a residence similar to that I was used to in the USVI. This house is the most similar that I could find.

Valerie Downing purchased this house in 2013

Why Valerie Downing chose USA

As a child growing up in Queens, NY we vacationed every summer in Springs near East Hampton (before it became 'Hollywood East'). I was familiar with the South Shore of the East End and wanted to find a property with water views and a connection with birds & other wildlife. This is it! A 'Great Room' on the 1st floor combines kitchen, dining & living rooms as one. The Master Suite was breathtaking with an open feel looking out through 4 huge picture windows to Bellport Bay. The large whirlpool bath has a sliding double door looking out over the bay and a side window with a view of Fire Island. With high ceilings and many windows there is a connection with the outdoors even when inside.

What makes this house unique

This house can very comfortably accommodate 6 guests with 3 bedrooms & 3 full bathrooms, an updated cherrywood & stainless steel kitchen, a 55' LED TV, Cable & Wi-Fi included, & new Washer & Dryer. 4 vehicles can park in the driveway.

The PERFECT place for beautiful memories!

  • 5 of 5

We are Long Islanders, who moved to Florida years ago, so we know what the PERFECT setting is for a wonderful vacation! This is it! We traveled back and rented this house for 8 nights and we wish we could have stayed longer. We shared the rental with some friends from England, who we hadn't seen in 40 years and this house just made the reunion even more special! It is immaculate inside and out. The rooms are spacious and inviting. Everything was clean and fresh and well maintained. And the views of the bay, fom the large, bayfront windows, was absolutely breathtaking! Beautiful sunsets at night that are postcard perfect. This house is furnished with furnishings that are comfy, inviting and feels just like home. From the.very start, the homeowner was absolutely wonderful in communication and her offers to accommodate anything special we might need during our stay. We had planned a family day at the house during our stay and she offered to get us more chairs and also got us an extra table. She was always available via phone or text during our entire stay. If you want a relaxing, memorable and hassle free place to stay, this house is a must! Having originally lived on Long Island, this house made me feel like I was home again! Oh, and our friends from England decided to get married while here, and the ceremony was performed on the beach behind the house. It was the absolutely perfect place for the wedding! We left with wonderful memories and hopes of returning in the future! Thank you, V., for everything!

Beautiful home with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time renting this home. We absolutely love the owner, she makes you feel like family. The house has breathtaking views, is very clean, and has everything you need for your stay. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets every evening. We loved our first stay so much we came back again and we will most definitely be back next year!

Wonderful family retreat in a spectacular location!

  • 5 of 5

Our active family of five loved staying in this beautiful, immaculately clean home in this spectacular location while we visited relatives on Long Island.

The open floor plan and many windows fill the home with lots of natural light, soft breezes, and stunning views of Bellport Bay. Newly-refurbished decks with dining and lounging furniture and steps down to a charming yard that leads to the bay make the outside just as enjoyable. The house is well-stocked with everything we could want to make ourselves at home, including a spacious kitchen, fully-equipped to make family meals.

We relaxed with coffee each morning and took in breathtaking sunsets with dinner on the decks. We walked across the yard to the water's edge to skip stones or to paddle board in the bay. The neighborhood felt safe and friendly. We strolled to the playground to enjoy the bay shore. We also took scenic jogs over the draw bridge to the ocean beach at Smith Point.

The owner is very welcoming and responsive. You couldn't ask for a better hostess! This was our first VRBO experience, and she made it seamless and very positive.

We recommend this rental enthusiastically!

Comfortable accomodation with a million dollar bay view!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property for 2 weeks and had a very pleasant time! The accomodation is very comfortable and includes all amenities required for a relaxing stay. We especially enjoyed the BBQ and the beautiful view of the bay during sunset!

Beautiful, spacious, well maintained home.

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this house for a 6 month period while working in the area, it has been a home away from home for our employees. Could not have asked for a better experience.

House On Bellport Bay

  • 5 of 5

The view of Bellport Bay from the deck of this bayside house was riveting and became the centerpiece of our stay. The bay in all of its moods had such a calming effect that other than going to the local Stop and Shop for food we stayed mostly on the deck of the house. The contemporary house with its open kitchen provided a wonderful space to cook meals and dine. One does need to go out to the Hamptons to get away from it all which this lovely home allowed us to do.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having Robin and Lori as my guests and I'm so happy that they enjoyed the house and views of the bay. I feel this home is my refuge away from the madding crowd and I'm glad when my guests enjoy the relaxation the property allows one to experience.
