A very private modern beach compound perched on a bluff with its own private beach and sunset over the sea.
We’ve rented this house two years in a row and have enjoyed our time there immensely. The open plan of the living/kitchen and dining areas provides amazing views of the back yard and the Long Island sound. Wherever you are in the house, or while sitting on the deck, the view is captivating and relaxing. The sunsets are stunningly beautiful. There are a number of stairs down to the beach but the effort is rewarded by having a virtually private beach. The owner has provided lounge chairs and umbrellas. We could see families at the other end of the beach but there was nobody near us for our entire stay. The house is close to all of the amenities that make the North Fork special - restaurants, shops, wineries, farm stands, golf, tennis, water sports etc. Greenport is less than ten minutes away by car if you want to go out to eat or buy food. The owner and his property manager are responsive and helpful if any issues arise.
This property is very special! The location is superb, right on the beach in a private estate with virtually no one around - it felt like we had our own mile of waterfront which was great for swimming, sunbathing and win its own rowing boat. The house is great too - lots of space, furnished in a really interesting manner and with everything you need. It was our first time staying in an Air BnB home and we realised we're actually staying in someone's own house, so you have their things there too and as a result it's not like a plush hotel, all spotless and pristine. However, the pros definitely outweigh this. Finally the area is also perfect for a relaxing break. We went to Southampton, Sag Harbor, Greenport, Shelter Island, did watersports, shopping and generally chilled out!
Where do I begin to describe my stay at this home... It was July 4th weekend and my wedding was on July 6th. I wanted a beautiful place to enjoy with my family and close friends, as if the honeymoon could start even before the wedding, and we had that. From the serene crashing of the waves that we could hear from lying in bed, to the hot tub which we kept perfectly cool, to the lounging teepee (I mean who has that?!), to the fully stocked gourmet kitchen where I cooked my first meal as a married girl(!), to the rain showers, the outdoor shower, too, to the proximity to town and to all things great on the North Fork. I could go on and on... This place is rockstar status. The view is something you would expect in Southern California, NOT Long Island! We also couldn't have lucked out more with the weather on our stay-- four days and nights of perfect sun. While it was pricey for us, it was a once in a lifetime treat for the bride and groom and was essentially our honeymoon. We feel fortunate to have found this place; it will be long remembered. Thank you Will, we hope to be back on an anniversary one day!
