Mike is a great guy and really made sure I had everything I needed. It was a pleasure getting to meet him. Room is well pointed, clean, quiet and well lit. I loved having the hens outside my door! Thanks, Mike!
We loved staying with Mike and Juliana. They made us feel very welcome and were most helpful. We make several trips to East Hampton each year and occasionally we need some extra space. So Mike and Juliana will be on our radar screen in the future.
Mike and Julian were great making us feel welcomed. They gave us great advice on where to go and what to do (turns out Mike wrote most of the guide books on the area). They even hooked us up with surfboards, a wetsuit, and a surf instructor. The apartment was very nice and very clean. It had everything you can possibly need (except a TV). The bed was very comfortable. The location was great. The surrounding were very peaceful and rural but the apartment was very conveniently located close to all the spots we wanted to visit. I would not hesitate on staying here again and hopefully go on one of Mike's Stand up paddle tours.
A fantastic quiet spot in the area. Not far from any of the surrounding attractions. Even on a bike you can reach everything within a half hour or so. Mike and Juliana were awesome hosts sharing some very special and adventurous experiences. Very warm and welcoming with lots of experience and knowledge about what to do and where to go. We enjoyed it so much that we will be back.
Mike was very welcoming and full of knowledge about the area. We didn't spend too much time in the house but the room was clean and as described.
The house is wonderfully located in the heart of Springs, a short walk from the bay beaches in a quiet and green neighborhood.
Mike and Juliana are the most gracious hosts. They made us feel at home while at the same time giving us plenty of privacy.
They even found us a baby sitter at the very last minute, saving our weekend s commitments.
Mike and Juliana were great hosts! They shared their knowledge about nice places in the area and offered very helpful tips. Me and my sister enjoyed our 2-days-stay a lot. The place was cosy, comfortable, spacious and clean and looks like the pictures show it. In walking distance you can find a beautiful beach as well as a little deli. We highly recommend staying at Mike's and Juliana's place!
Juliana and I love the outdoors and spend as much time as possible exploring nature. When not studying wildlife, we are surfing, paddling, swimming, biking, running, gardening and reading.
