Fully equipped, private 2nd floor apartment in Patchogue Village, home to 30+ restaurants, an art gallery and theater among other things. Patchogue is known as the gateway to Fire Island with the ferries and LIRR Patchogue station close by. There's also a small but beautiful beach within 1 mile of the apartment! A 40 minute drive east and you'll arrive in the Hamptons or wine country on the North Fork of Long Island.

This space provides the perfect getaway from city life while maintaining a high level of comfort and convenience. Besides being ultra cozy the apartment is located extremely close to 2 restaurants, a CVS, and the beach. Just a bit farther lies the heart of Patchouge Village, Main St. Home to 30+ bars, restaurants, and shops of all kinds.
Guests have access to a private 2nd floor apartment with private side entrance. This is not a shared space of any kind. There is a business on the main floor that only operates during normal business hours. Guests have access to the entire back lot once the main floor business closes. This space is a perfect place to relax at night by the patio table with 2 chairs and maybe have a BBQ with the grill I provide.
Guest also have access to the shed where bikes and beach gear are located (chair, umbrella, cooler).
Beyond the initial meeting to give guests access to the space, there will be minimal interaction. When my schedule allows I can provide pick-up from the train station or airport, please inquire prior to your arrival about availability. I am a text message or phone call away at all times during your stay and I am also very knowledgeable of the local areas including Patchogue village, Bluepoint/Bayport, and Sayville. Brochures and info about the Fire Island ferries location and schedule are provided. There are 3 restaurants, a CVS, and an ice cream place basically across the street and much more if take the 15-20 minute walk east to downtown Patchogue Village!
There is also plenty of private off street parking available to you if you're traveling by car!
* The apartment is cozy, but small. About 650 sq feet to be exact. It is perfect for couples but it may be too cramped for other guest situations (2 adults not comfortable sharing a bed).
* A car is highly recommend BUT getting around without one is completely doable, especially with the provided bikes. It is a 18-20 minute walk to the downtown area and a 20 minute walk (1.1 miles) to Corey Beach. A 15 minute bike ride will get you most anywhere you'll need to go.
* Street noise - at night the apartment and surrounding area are as serene as could be BUT the apartment is located on a main street that, starting around 8am, is quite busy. If you are a light sleeper this may not be the space for you. Personally, it does not bother me having living in New York City for a period (on the rare occasion I'm able to be sleep in late) but I felt the need to inform as a handful of reviews have made mention of it.
