Upon your arrival you will find a "Welcome Package" with pertinent information about The Victorian and our lovely town of Sea Cliff. You will also be provided with clean sheets, plenty of pillows and blankets, fresh towels and hotel style toiletries. Please bring your own beach towels in the summer season. A variety of Keurig coffee, tea and hot chocolate will be available for all guests.

NOTE: This is a laid back, comfortable home with lots of personality and charm. It is a "working home", meaning that I live in the house when we are not renting it. When renting The Victorian expect a fun, cute and comfortable atmosphere!

We have neighbors living behind our house in a separate residence on the property, please be respectful of them.

Guest Access

Parking for two cars can be arranged in the driveway, but you must be courteous as the driveway is shared with the neighbor behind. Absolutely no blocking the driveway. I can also direct guests to the overnight parking within the town. THERE IS NO OVERNIGHT PARKING ON THE STREET - you WILL be ticketed!

A resident of The Victorian will meet you at the house upon your arrival (or arrange for someone to meet you). Our standard check-in time is 4 p.m. and check-out is noon. If you need some flexibility for those times contact me and we will do our best to accommodate you, but please use these times as a rough guideline.

Interaction with Guests

We will be available for questions, concerns, or to interact with guests as much as they would like during your stay.

The Neighborhood

Sea Cliff is a very walk-able and artistic town. In the village you will find several restaurants (look up Metropolitan Bistro, Oak Room and Musu of Sea Cliff) and bars for your entertainment as well as galleries, shops with handmade gifts, and coffee shops. Also available nearby are convenient stores for any amenities you might desire (such as an ATM, Starbucks, CVS, and 24-hour 7-11).

Getting around

The closest LIRR stop is the Sea Cliff train station which can be reached by a 5 minute cab ride or a 15 minute walk. Everything in town can be accessed by foot. Please note though, that the walk to the beach is down a steep stairway, we are on a cliff by the sea after all :)

Other Things to Note

We are flexible with allowing well behaved dogs as guests, as long as they are supervised and picked up after. You *must* give us notification that you want to bring your dog before booking your reservation. (Sorry no cats due to allergies.)

The cleaning fees are as follows:
2-4 days = $50
4-7 days = $100
7+ days = $150

I will adjust your total based on these fees after accepting your reservation as Airbnb doesn't allow for customized cleaning fee adjustments, and I think this is the fairest pricing method for all reservations. We appreciate you being neat and tidy guests and leaving the house in the condition you found it and will reward with very positive reviews!

We are accommodating of a change in the number of guests on your reservation up until 3 days before your arrival. We understand things come up and sometimes a friend can't make it anymore or an extra friend wants to join. However, you must finalize your number of guests with us 3 days before your arrival so that we have time to adjust your total. If it is discovered on check-in, during your visit, or after check-out that extra guests have been present your security deposit will be at stake.

Note: if you are contacting me about filming a production on the property a $300 filming fee will also apply. Standard check-in/check-out times apply for filming, and if additional time is required you will be charged an additional night's stay. Thanks!

  • Pros: The house definitely had plenty of room to accommodate a large group. It was in a nice quiet location and blocked off from the road by hedges, so somewhat private. Lots of fun games and space in the yard to play. Very easy to walk to all areas of Sea Cliff for provisions, or to restaurants or the beach.

    Cons: The house is definitely being used as a day-to-day residence. There is nowhere to store your things, so you live out of your luggage. There are animals living there as well, so someone will share a room with an (empty) dog crate. The fridge and freezer were full of their own groceries, with little room to add our own items, and we had a large group to feed/cook for. There's a garage in back of the house where people came and went; it shares a property and driveway, though we have no idea who they were. The house was tidy, but not particularly clean-feeling.

  • Very pretty area, and the house was perfectly situated for a weekend with friends! Stephanie did a perfect job preparing the house, and all of the bedrooms were very well kept.

  • The Victorian is beautiful and huge! We had a great time and were very comfortable! Would definitely come again.

    March 2014
  • My siblings and I booked the house on very short notice for just a night to attend a memorial event for a deceased family member. We had our elderly parents with us so we thought a home environment would be more comfortable than staying in hotel rooms. We enjoyed the short stay. The house was very comfortable and worked well for us. Planning, arrival, and departure went very smoothly and I would recommend the house to groups looking for a comfortable laid back accommodation. Sea Cliff is a beautiful town and it would have been nice to spend more time walking around town.

  • It was my first time using Air BnB I could not have asked for a better host. Steph was extremely accomodating she answered my questions in a timely manner. My group loved Stephs property it was a great way to ring in the New Year! We will be back when the weather gets better. Thanks again for everything talk to you soon.

  • Pros: Very cozy and spacious. Convenient to NYC and downtown Sea Cliff. Stocked with plenty of towels and sheets. Accommodating hostess.
    Cons: House could use a serious deep clean, especially the kitchen!

  • This is a beautiful Victorian house! We had a great time. Ample space for bedding, as promised. There were welcome materials on the table when we arrived and lots of extra information. A "Welcome" message written on the kitchen with chalk. We were late picking up the keys and Steph was very accommodating. During the weekend we had a question and called Steph and she got back to us with an answer right away. Can't say enough good things! And there is a trampoline in the back!

  • Steph was an absolute pleasure to rent from! She was responsive, friendly, flexible and was kind enough to leave us a list of local beaches and fun spots. The house itself was adorable with sweet details--cute string lights on the front porch, rocking chairs, and a "chalkboard" fridge you can write messages on. We were about a 10-15 minute walk from Sea Cliff beach and about 15-20 drive from Bayville beach, which was ideal for us. At the house, we basically spent the whole time grilling in the front yard (Steph had plenty of coal ready for us and bug spray for evening grilling) and playing with the lawn games she had available. There was an awesome trampoline in the back yard that we never took advantage of, but I definitely plan on logging some time on that thing if we ever go back (which, btw, I would love to do). I appreciated how accommodating Steph was of our last minute planning and we really enjoyed our stay at the house. It was a great time!
