Guest suite in Hampton Bays
My ocean Bungalow is super well located in Hampton Bays. You will be 10 minutes away from the center of town where the Hampton Bays train station is. You also have Starbucks, Ride Aid, king Kullen, and great eateries at your fingertips. You will also have another two great supermarkets; Stop&Shop and Wild by Nature natural food store. You will be staying in a room with a feeling of a Junior Suite with approximately 400sq feet, a much larger area than a standard room. It has an attached small full bathroom, a living space that I call “home theater” with a 75” smart TV, a wet Bar with Coffee, Expresso and Tea, your own refrigerator. No heavy cooking is allowed indoors but I will offer a grill outside, for the most gastronomically inclined guests ... there’s no dining area but you are more welcome to use the dining table at the outdoor stone patio. One of the nicest thing about our location is that we are 5 minutes from Ponquogue Beach with excellent near by restaurants such as Oklands, Sundays on the Bay, on Beach Road and Dockers waterside on Dune Road. Meschutt beach is also a great location with live music throughout the summer, not a beach for surfers or adventure swimmers, since it’s on Peconic Bay, but on a plus side, there’s a full outdoor bar for adults, I love their Rum punch, and a full service snack bar, and a gift shop that sells beach gear... etc.

Your guide to Long Island

Welcome to Long Island

To the east of New York City, Long Island stretches from just past John F. Kennedy International Airport all the way to Montauk, and has a personality all of its own. At its heart, it’s a comfortable suburb so many New Yorkers call home, but it’s just as vibrant of a destination, especially thanks to its 118 miles of white-sand coastline with 150 beaches on both sides. It also has its own wineries and breweries, more than 60 golf courses, art and science museums, historic landmarks, and the fanciest of mansions along its Gold Coast. And with fresh seafood and farms of every kind, the food scene is just as thrilling.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Long Island

The warmest months in Long Island are from May to September, and the coldest are between December and February. While it does snow during the winter months, it tends to be less than the rest of the state — usually just a few snowstorms a year, and most times, it’s less than an inch. Annual events include the oldest Triple Crown race, the Belmont Stakes, in Elmont in June; the Tomato Festival in Mattituck in August; the Long Island Summer Festival at Smith Haven Mall in Lake Grove in July; and the Festival of Trees at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City during the holidays.

Top things to do in Long Island

Fire Island

No cars are allowed on this 32-mile-long barrier island along the Atlantic coast, inherently making it an idyllic beach destination where the pace of life slows down. Along with its 17 separate communities is the 40-acre maritime Sunken Forest and 168-foot-tall Fire Island Lighthouse — the tallest on Long Island.

Gold Coast Mansions

All that glitters just might be gold here. On the northern side of Long Island from Port Washington to Centerport, the coastline is dotted with mansions so extravagant that they’ve inspired literature. Highlights include the Vanderbilt Museum and Planetarium in Centerport.

Montauk Point State Park

At the far eastern point of the South Fork, the waters of the Atlantic Ocean meet the strait of the Block Island Sound, causing a phenomenon where the tides seem to race against one another. Take a hike along the shore and you might also see seals out on the rocks, or grab a board and surf the waves (surf fishing is also popular here). For a higher perspective, stop by the state’s oldest lighthouse, Montauk Lighthouse, right next door.
