About the area

The house is located at the edge of a quiet year-round residential community. The Long Island Railroad and major state parkways serve this area with access within three miles. Your car, or a rental car, will make it possible to get to local grocery stores, shopping centers, shopping malls, churches, restaurants, state parks, town beaches, golf courses, and other activities. Canoe and kayak rentals are available locally or bring your own kayak, small boat or canoe. Long Island is located to the east of New York City, with Long Island Sound along its North shore and the Atlantic Ocean along its South shore. You can take a day trip to Montauk Point Lighthouse at the end of Long Island's South Fork and spend the day at Hither Hills State Park on the ocean. You can drive onto the Orient Point ferry at the end of Long Island's North Fork for a trip across the Sound to New London, Connecticut for a visit to Mystic Seaport. There is also a ferry crossing Long Island Sound from Port Jefferson to Bridgeport Connecticut. Many walk-on ferries cross the Great South Bay from towns along the South Shore for day trips to the ocean beaches along Fire Island. Long Island has large suburban areas close to New York City to the West. To the East it has farms and vineyards. There are colleges and universities, concerts and theater performances, sports and activities of nearly every kind including a nearby ice skating rink which is open to the public. There is something on Long Island for just about everybody and every interest.

“Perfect for our needs.”

Reviewed 1 Jul 2016

The house in on a quiet street in a quiet neighborhood with a beautiful view of the river. The breeze off the river at night is refreshing and the sunsets were gorgeous. Plenty of sleeping space and comfy beds and A/C. The kichen was stocked with more dishes and pots and pans than I could ever imagine - if you have a large family and like to cook in, you will want for nothing! There were extra beach towels in the bathroom that we needed which was great. This is a great place to stay whether you plan to hang out at home or go sightseeing like we did. Groceries are close by, as is the Dunkin' Donuts! Plenty of restaurants around. Nothing but a positive experience!

“Lucky to Find North Shore Rental”

Reviewed 18 Jul 2013

There are very few availabilities between Manhattan and the East End of Long Island. So many of us stay in typical chain hotels along the LIExpressway. Well, here is a home, a real home, that is clean, filled with all you need, and enables relaxation and appreciation of Long Island's North Shore to boot. 4 Bedrooms with Vermont made pyramid beds, AC, and a front porch with idyllic views of the Nissequogue River, Long Island Sound in the far distance. It is a bit tight but very cosy. Beautiful kitchen implements and a grill with casual seating outside. Cooking is fun. Chairs on the lawn and a bathrobe per guest in which to drink coffee, enjoy the waterview, and catch up. Situated in an old Italian immigrant summer bungalow neighborhood "San Remo," this house is close enough to the Sagtikos Parkway and Northern State to get in and out, close enough to Kings Park to enjoy true blue family owned deli's, bakery, and restaurants, yet, far away enough to feel you are really on vacation - canoe/kayak, beach it, ride a bike, relax and read a book. Parks and boat rentals are nearby. The house is old, quaint, and useful. Take a day trip to NYC from the Kings Park LIRR, enjoy a family outing, but best of all, visit LI and see your relatives without having to stay in the "same old" hotel. We are glad to have found this place! Thank you Sandra!

“Great stay!”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2012

This house was very clean and in a great quiet location. Large kitchen table and well equiped kitchen made it easy to prepare meals. We would stay there again.

“Great Spot to Relax!”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2011

We picked a hot week, but enjoyed cool breezes off the river every night, and thoroughly enjoyed watching the birds congregate just a few steps away in the mornings and evenings. The grill provided a week's worth of fun family barbecues, which was great! The house is nicely set up and the kitchen met all our needs. We were sorry when our week ended, and hope to have a chance to get back. THANKS!!!

Great house, clean, large enough for 4 adults and 4 children. It was fun cooking on the BBQ and enjoying the outside space. The owner was very friendly and helpful. It was overall a relaxing trip.

“Cozy house with fabulous water views”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2010

This house was great for our family from Germany. It had all of the amenities one could think of and many additional helpful features that we didn't think of in advance. It was great to grill in the backyard with water views in sight. The kayak launch ramp within walking distance of the house was delightful. We'll definitely try to get this home for future stays, it's a lovely place.

“Long Island - central”

Reviewed 27 Jun 2009

The house is lovely - very clean and lots of facilities although another bathroom would have helped at times (7 of us stayed). Kings Park is a great place to be based to enable visits all over Long Island and NYC. We had rain due to freak weather but found lots to do locally despite this so would heartily recommend this house to anyone looking to explore the area. The landlady is lovely and very helpful, we had a fantastic holiday here

“Kings Park Rental”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2008

We had groups of friends visiting from France and they needed a place to stay. This house was large enough to accommodate 8 adults and 3 children under 5 years old. It was great for everyone to have all of the benefits of living at home while being away. There's a washing machine and dryer, dishwasher, coffee maker, dishes, plates, silverware, and coffee maker - everything you need. There's even television and wireless internet. Our guests were very happy and even commented on how comfortable the beds were. There's also a gas grill available for backyard barbeques. There are only three minor drawbacks: 1) there's only 1 and a half baths, so if you've got a large group, this may impact you, 2) the backyard is very, very small, but there are picnic tables you can use, and 3) there was no cell phone service (I have Verizon), but there is a wall phone you can use for local calls. Bottom line: This is a tremendous value for the money. We highly recommend it!

“Great Cottage!!”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2008

We really enjoyed this cozy cottage. The house has everything you need..even laundry detergent. Our kids loved exploring the river across the street (although not water for swimming) There was plenty of space and was a great location for exploring Long Island.
