We are located mid island on a quiet residential street and our home is not for the party crowd. We cater to families who want to relax and enjoy their holiday, but you can catch a Trolley ride to anywhere on the island.More

The privacy of the cottage is wonderful. However, privacy does not equal boredom. Between riding bikes, kayaking,...More

About the neighborhood
Within less than a mile of the home there is also a movie theater, 1 block convenience store, restaurants and a bank.

Take a short drive or take the trolley system for .25 and head up to Time Square for some dining and dancing or some great shopping.
