  • Great host and comfortable room!

    February 2014
  • Robert is a human with big letter H. He is very benevolent and cares very much about you staying in his house. If you need something, I mean, anything, Robert helps you. He gave me hairdryer, lint roller, towels, some chargers, because I am from another country, Russian Siberia and was my first time in the USA. He organized activities for me including dinner at the local Kiwanis meeting, a Christmas meal with an American family, sightseeing of the local area, shopping and books. If I had a question about shops oe trains to New York city, he helped me out. He has a really big library in his house. The house is fancy and comfortable, it has all of the kitchen devices, and I cooked my meals daily there. The bed is very good and room is shiny and clean. He even went out and bought a new refrigerator for the room for my use. He has very so cute and friendly cats. If you want to stay without problems, stay at this good house with an excellent housemaster Robert! I’m so happy that I decided to stay in this house.

  • I stayed in Robert's house in Patchogue for four weeks while completing a medical rotation at a clinic in Hauppauge, about 20 minutes away. Robert was a very kind and thoughtful host. He was prompt to answer any questions I had and to provide anything I needed (I did ask for a second pillow at one point, which was provided within a day). He does have five cats, who are very sweet. The house is large and gives the sense of a friendly, shared living space, although the rooms are private (each has its own lock and television). Since I stayed at Robert's house for a month, I enjoyed chatting with him and meeting the other people who rented rooms at various times (the house has three rooms to rent); this made my four-week stay on Long Island more lively. I would certainly recommend Robert's house to others.

    November 2013
  • Robert is a very kind host. On day 1 he offered to pick us up from the train station and showed us around the Patchogue before dropping us off at his place. The room we stayed in is pretty spacious, and is located conveniently next to the shared bathroom. Robert's cats were also super friendly.

    September 2013
  • Robert was very accomodating and a great host. Even though he was traveling for much of my stay, he was able to solve a small problem that came up very quickly and from across the country. I would stay there again.

    July 2013
  • Robert was a really friendly and helpful host and made me feel very comfortable in his home. The house is in a very convenient location in central/south Long Island and a good base for exploring the area. I would be happy to stay there again.

    June 2013
  • Robert was great and I enjoyed my stay in Patchogue. Even though I arrived late, Robert greeted me in the driveway and carried my luggage up the stairs. I had everything I needed and the location was perfect. If you're visiting Patchogue, this is a very convenient place to stay. I was provided with an extra blanket and room heater. Thanks Robert!

  • Robert is a knowledgeable, friendly, and generous host and clearly wants his guests to have the best possible experience. The house is big and old and the rooms feel spacious and solid, in a way that affords plenty of privacy for visitors on a different time schedule due to jet lag, etc. I enjoyed the benefit of a host who could advise me and direct me toward anything I needed locally, and plenty of independence to come and go as needed without being disruptive. Patchogue is very accessible from JFK airport and I found it easy to get into Manhattan as well.

    December 2012
  • Robert was a great host. He had lots of suggestions of things to do in the area and greeted us with a cup of tea on arrival. He lives a five minute walk from the centre of Patchogue, very convenient for the town and connections to the city. The room was very spacious and warm, even with the snow outside.

    November 2012
  • Robert was very cordial and interesting to talk to. The house is large, with lots of books. Wish I had time to look though some of the books he has! The bedroom is a large corner room with comfortable bed, table, dresser and closet. Full bath is next to the bedroom.

    Robert is also very knowledgeable about the general area, cultural events and things to do. His house is near shops and the beaches. He has cats, but they don't bother you.
