Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Southold - Halsey Cottage

4/5 bedrooms, 4.5 bath, Porches front/back, wifi, cable, linens, walk to beach

The full season rate is now available for the 2016 summer season. This rate will be available until January 31, 2016. Southold Town has enacted new legislation requiring a 14 day minimum stay for vacation property rentals in the town. Monthly and 14 day rates will be available starting February 1, 2016. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Summering on the North Fork of Long Island can bring all the joys of summer without the hectic pace and traffic of the Hamptons. Located in a beautiful bayside neighborhood in the heart of North Fork wine country this tastefully decorated 4/5 bedroom/4.5 bath postmodern home (built in 2007) is a two minute walk from idyllic Goose Creek Beach and the Southold Yacht Club (associate membership included in rentals of 2 weeks or more) offering private beach, snack bar, bath, and kayak storage (sailing lessons for the kids available). Perfect location for biking, fishing, and beach cookouts. You'll be close to Southold village, area restaurants, and wineries. The house features a large first floor master bedroom suite, elegant, fully equipped eat-in kitchen with pantry, living room with HDTV and cathedral ceilings, hardwood floors, fireplace, study with HDTV, upstairs guest bedroom with en-suite bathroom, with two additional bedrooms and bathroom. Covered porches front and back for summer grilling or just relaxing with the Sunday paper. Large attached two car garage, central air, cable, wi-fi, hardwood floors, bikes (3 included), and pets considered.

About Paul Halsey

Small business owner, husband, father, friend...

Paul Halsey purchased this house in 2013

Why Paul Halsey chose North Fork

Lived and travelled all over the world but love coming home to the East End. The North Fork is a special place in the summer, the light, salt air breezes, and water all combine to make this house and this area a wonderful place to breathe deep and relax.

What makes this house unique

Southold Yacht Club (SYC) membership is included for rentals of 2 weeks or more. The SYC privileges include private beach, facilities, snack bar, kayak or sailboat (must be hand trailerable) storage, sailing lessons not included.

Didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a week to visit my hometown, attend a reunion, and had a blast! The home was spacious, clean, and perfect. The beach is around the corner, a short walk. The back yard was great for the kids to run around in. Can't think of any complaints!

Wonderful North Fork Property

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our two young children enjoyed a two week stay here in late summer 2015. The house is completely up-to-date and very well maintained, with more than enough amenities (that are all precisely as described). A great beach is literally around the corner and the town of Southold is a very short drive away (as is Greenport and other prime North Fork destinations). Very highly recommended and we would absolutely stay here again.

Feedback on stay

  • 4 of 5

The house was great, very clean and comfortable. Loved the neighborhood and location. Easy to get around.

Unfortunately the house only allowed access to the local beach-this was not clear in the rental agreement. Had to go to city hall and spend $80 for beach passes. Also had to purchase a membership to the local yacht club. Lastly, unable to watch the larger TV. TV stopped working after storm.

Owner's Response: Michelle, first, thank you for your 4 star rating and glad you enjoyed your stay. Below is my response to each of the concerns cited in your review. 1) "house only allowed access to local beach". Parking access to all public beaches in Southold Town is a public service of Southold Town only. No permit is required if parking is not needed (Goose Creek Beach is described as a 2 minute walk from our property). The Town requires residents (or tenants) seeking public beach parking permits to present a valid tax bill or rental lease and a car registration in the same name for each permit issued. As such beach permits cannot be included in the rental agreement (nor were they promised in the house description). Your suggestion to provide Town of Southold beach permit requirements in the house instructions is much appreciated and has been added. We were happy to be able to help you obtain an additional permit by amending your lease for additional cars. 2) "Also had to purchase a membership to the local yacht club". You failed to mention that you were reimbursed $450 for the purchase of of the Southold Yacht Club membership. This could easily lead to misunderstanding so please update your review to reflect. Also, new SYC members must complete their own applications. 3) "Unable to watch large TV. TV stopped working after a storm." When the TV was checked after your stay the power interruption protector the TV power cord is plugged into had been tripped, most likely due to the storm. When reset the TV operated normally. For comments to be posted they must accurately reflect the relevant circumstances of the rental, thank you. Best, Paul

Wonderful Home for Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed this wonderful house and property. It was spacious, well laid out and very clean with all the comforts of a vacation home. The beach is a short walk, short enough for two toddlers and a preschooler to walk with no issues. The property is close to town and a short drive to the farms and vineyards. Perfect location and awesome house. Highly recommend and would stay here again.

A terrific gathering place to rent!

  • 5 of 5

This property was so spacious and comfortable offering both private and gathering spaces for a large family. It includes a nicely furnished backyard deck and large yard which we enjoyed for barbecues. The ride into town via car or bike is short and beautiful. A gorgeous sandy beach is a very short walk away also. Amenities as described in the website were all available and in working order (like the bikes and grill). Paul Halsey was available in a timely manner if needed and the information he shared about his property was right on target! We would rent this property again.
