About This Listing
Listen to the ocean waves and smell the tomotoes ripening on the vine from your deck at this meticulous beach house in exclusive Captain Kidd Estates. You will feel like you have unearthed buried treasure when you experience the lore of the North Fork and then retreat to this cozy luxury property which accomodates up to 6 adults/children in an open floor concept. The four bedrooms contain :
One bedroom: 1 Queen bed
Second bedroom: Bunk beds
Third bedroom: 2 Full beds
Fourth bedroom: 1 Queen bed
From the gourmet kitchen with top of the line stainless steel appliances, granite counters and tumbled stone backsplash you overlook the pedastal dining room table and cozy living room fitted with white wash brick fireplace and 40" High Def Plasma TV. Only one hour and twenty minutes from NYC and minutes from dozens of wineries, local produce farms, golf courses, outlet shopping at Tanger Riverhead and Historic Greenport Village to name just a few ways to spend your stay. As for beaches, from the Sound to the Bay or even the short drive to the Hamptons on the Atlantic, there are a number of picturesque locations to choose from.
Our Mattituck home is our gem-we have completely renovated this home since we purchased it just 3 years ago and made it the perfect getaway from city life. It is at the same time accommodating and cozy, simple yet refined with the quality furnishings we have used. Many of the shells in the house were accumulated when running on the beach and fishing books and vintage reels are my husband's treasures, an established surfcaster for over twenty years.
Our home is located in a beautifully landscaped neighborhood, tucked on a quiet street of 3 homes just behind the bluffs facing the ocean where it is legend that Captain Kidd has buried treasure. The property is fenced in and borders environmentally protected land which is ideal for young children despite the rare traffic in the area. Also ideal for children is the open backyard which has never been treated with pesticides-a common practice for others who don't have a fenced in area. To accommodate parents with very young children or infants, the house can have available with a bassinet (fitted with custom luxury linens), outlet covers, a stair gate, a portable pack'n'play, infant tub, high chair and portable high chair.
We enjoy our home and all the North Fork has to offer; we're happy to share our "treasures" with you as you hunt for your own. If you are interested in learning more about our home, please inquire for more information.
The owner will provide the required permission to obtain beach permits available to residents only.
We will require a signed contract and safety deposit with every reservation.
All adults must be at least 25 years of age. The bunk beds are made for youth and can accommodate up to 70 pounds only per bed.
Our home is our gem. We use the property and maintain it meticulously as do all our neighbors..this is why it is such a desirable and beautiful area. Shoes are not to be worn inside the house. We ask that you use the outdoor shower to remove any sand from the beach before entering the house. We only eat in the dining area and outside-not in bedrooms or the living room. The tv is in full view from the dining room and even the balcony and because it's 40" you won't miss a thing. You will enjoy the birds and the ocean sound because everyone respects each other's vacation time. As such, there should be no loud music or commotion from the house or when using the outdoor area. The same holds true at the local beaches. We also request that no food is kept out, that counters are wiped clean every night and no dishes are left unclean in the sink. Additional housekeeping can be made available for an additional charge upon request.
My family and I had a wonderful stay at Jim and Helen's home in Mattituck.
The house is immaculate and it's clear that Jim and Helen put a lot of love and care into the place. They were excited to share their home with us and we treated the home with the same care that they put into it.
Mattituck has a lot to offer and Helen was very helpful in providing information on the various places and events to check out while we were there.
We had an excellent vacation at their gem of a home and would love to stay again.
House was very cute and tastefully decorated, loved the outdoor space and swing for the kids!
Nous avons passé 6 jours à Mattituck. Tout a été simple à notre arrivée, les clefs étant à disposition. Le contrat de location semble un peu chargé mais finalement pas vraiment de contraintes sur place. La maison est située au calme à 10 minutes en voiture des commerces. La maison est bien aménagée, confortable et décoration cosy, avec air conditionné. Les 4 chambres sont très appréciables pour une famille de 5. Il manque le wifi et une machine à laver le linge. Plusieurs plages et vignobles à proximité en voiture. Pour les plages, il faut un "beach pass" (il permet de stationner dans les parkings prêts des plages, sinon difficiles d'accès) qu'il faut aller chercher à Southold (20 min en voiture). Il coute 40 dollars.
L'accueil d'Helen et Jim fut excellent, toujours à l'écoute. Ils nous ont toujours aidé dans nos recherches. Pour le départ, très simple, il faut juste déposer les poubelles à la déchèterie (10 min en voiture). Nous avons vu Helen et Jim à notre départ et le contact fut très chaleureux.
This is the most perfect relaxed holiday get away. The area is incredibly quiet, but there is lots to do - the beach is a 10 minute walk away, and you can walk/run for miles. It is also West facing and so has spectacular sunsets. You are also very near lots of lovely beaches on the other side of North Fork, and near to Greenport where there are good restaurants and the ferry to Shelter Island.
The house is imaculate and clearly much loved. As well as being very clean, the photos delict the house perfectly-it looks exactly as it does in the photos. The decour would be to everyone's taste and the beds are very comfy. The kitchen is well equipped, with a lovely deck and table, and the garden is large and well-kept. They were also happy for us to use their BBQ. Helen also provided us with bath towels and beach towels which is very useful.
The house only has one bathroom, and no separate WC, which may be an issue if there were 10 people staying together. There is also no washing machine which again many be an issue with young children, although there is a laundry that will deliver laundered clothes.
Helen could not have been more helpful or accessible, giving advice on restaurants, beaches, garbage disposal etc, and also arranging for a vehicle beach pass which was very helpful. She offered to put together an itinerary for us before we arrived, but we were too disorganised to take her up on her offer! You can tell that they love their home, and are very proud of it.
The neighbourhood is very quiet, but you will definitely need a car to get around as there are no shops or restaurants that we found in walking distance. You will also definitely want to explore the North Fork.
