The SpaceThis unique home perched on the waters edge can comfortably sleep five. Guests have two private waterfront decks overlooking a garden with firepit and seating for four. The first floor deck has two loungers and a dining table that seats six. The third floor deck has two comfortable adirondeck chairs looking out over the water and enjoys views of the abundant wildlife of Farm Creek, a protected preserve. The view from the third floor is exceptional and our favorite place on the property. It's the perfect spot to enjoy a morning coffee, evening cocktail, or sit with a laptop or tablet to work or hop on the internet. There is cable television in the living room and each bedroom and also air conditioning and wifi throughout the grounds. We usually see about two tide changes per day and at high tide you can launch one of our two kayaks or a paddle board right off the back deck. We live here year round but we feel like we are constantly on vacation : ) Another notable aspect of the property is a private courtyard between the house and the garage. The entire property is fenced in at the front of the house too, so it's set up to allow your dog to roam freely without worrying they will get into the street. The first floor is an open format and very family friendly as you can always have your eyes on your little ones. The kitchen was updated with brand new appliances only two years ago and is perfect for the home chef. From the kitchen island you can look out onto Farm Creek and enjoy the water view at high tide or sunset in the evening. What we find most appealing about the property is the location. We are a short 1-2 minute walk from two beautiful private beaches on the Long Island Sound. Our favorite is East Beach, which looks out over a mooring field and onto nearby Tavern Island and Sheffield Island. Both islands are navigable by kayak or paddle board if you are willing to expend some effort and get a good workout in! Another great aspect of the location is a large private park a couple hundred yards from our front door. The park has a backstop and some benches along the water and is a perfect place to take your kids or your morning coffee...or espresso from our Nespresso esspresso maker! Then there is Rocky Point, a truly magnificent private park about a five minute walk from our front door. The park juts out into the sound and on a clear day you will enjoy exceptional views of Long Island and the NYC skyline about 35 miles away. As for the general accommodations, the master bedroom on the 2nd floor has a queen bed for two. The space can accommodate a crib at the foot of the bed but a crib would also fit in the master bathroom which is quite large, about 12ft x 8ft, and only steps from the bed. The third floor has another queen bed and a single bed and there is an aero mattress in the closet should you need it. We've also had guests sleep on our couch in the living room, which is deep enough one might refer to it as more of a daybed than a couch. So all in, the house can comfortably accommodate five people; two in the master queen, two in the 3rd floor queen, and then one more in the 3rd floor single bed. But if you needed to, you could fit two more on the aero bed and another on the couch in the living room. From NYC, our house is about a one hour train ride on the New Haven train line out of Grand Central Station. Guest AccessOur guests enjoy access to three bicycles, two kayaks, two paddle boards, and access to two private beaches on Long Island Sound. The house has two full baths (one off the master and one in the 2nd foor hallway) and and two half baths, (one on the first floor off the living room and one on the third floor). The back patio has a large three burner grill and is an incredible atmosphere for a BBQ. Interaction with GuestsHow much we interact with you is up to you. You can reach us if you have questions but our goal is to truly let you enjoy the comfort of your temporary home. The NeighborhoodWe live in a private association called Bell Island. We are surrounded by incredible views of Long Island Sound and Farm Creek Preserve and our beaches are reserved for use by residents and their guests only, so you never have to worry about crowds. Getting AroundThere is not public transit but taxi's are available and parking is included with your stay (up to four cars). The best way to get here from the airport is a taxi or rental car. As for local transportation, a bicycle or kayak is the best way to get around and explore the area, and we have three bikes, two kayaks, and a paddle board that you are free to use. You can also easily walk to main street where there is an ice cream parlor, a country market, post office, hardware store, pizza shop, and two incredible restaurants. Other Things to NoteThe private deck faces west and we think the sunset from the deck is one of the best in the world : )

    The SpaceThe main floor is open with oversized professional-grade kitchen for all you foodies. We like to cook and to entertain so our kitchen is the main focal point with top-grade appliances and a professional feel to it. But we love our other spaces too - the back wall of the house opens up completely letting you slip from indoors to outdoors seamlessly. We love sharing sunset cocktails and snacks with our neighbors on our front porch. And morning coffee out on the back deck or the firepit as the sun starts to the light up the house is a great way to start the day. And it doesn't get much better than grilling fresh tuna or salmon from the local Rowayton Seafood Market on our 6-burner grill and eating al fresco under our Pergola, especially when the hanging Wisteria is in bloom above it. And of course the day wouldn't be complete for the kids if we didn't make smores over the fire as the stars come out (along with the fireflies). The bedrooms are on the 2nd floor, with a Master suite and 3 additional bedrooms (1 is fairly small and best for a young child). The basement is finished and contains a gameroom (WiiU). The entire house has been newly renovated (2012). The street is known as one of the best in town since it is quiet yet only 1 block from "downtown" and Pinkney Park which lie on 5 Mile River. You can easily walk to everything the town has to offer - Bayley Beach, Pinkney Park, Village Restaurants/Bars and even the Metro North Train to NYC (15 min walk to station and 55 train ride into NYC). Guest AccessThe entire house will be accessible. We have adult and kids bikes that you are welcome to use during your stay. We also have a Cedarworks swingset in the backyard and a basketball net on the street that our kids use all the time. Interaction with GuestsWe will be available by phone/email/text throughout your stay to answer any questions and make sure you have a great time. The NeighborhoodRowayton was voted a Top 10 seaside town by Coastal Living Magazine (2013) for good reason. It feels like Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard but you're only 1 hour from NYC. The town comes alive in the summer with frequent events like the live Sunday concerts at Bayley Beach or down the block at Pinkney Park (see (website hidden) for event details). Bayley Beach, the town beach, is a main attraction and bridge-jumping off the Farm Creek bridge is always popular. Kayaks or Stand-up Paddleboards can be rented down the block at 'Downunder' (below Rowayton Market). Rowayton Farmer's Market is held at Pinkney Park each Friday afternoon. 'The Restaurant at Rowayton Seafood' is a fantastic restaurant right on the water in town - great for sunset cocktails out on the deck too. 'Sails' is another popular restaurant and even closer to the house. 'Rowayton Pizza' has fantastic outdoor seating for a nice casual experience and you can walk across to 'Brendan's 101' for ice cream after for your walk home along the river. 'Brendan's' and 'Rowayton Market' are both extremely popular for breakfast and lunch - the Market also has deck-seating out back that overlooks the river. Rowayton Library and the town dock are also a quick walk from the house. Getting AroundAlthough tucked away out on a peninsula in the LI Sound, the house is only 1.5 miles away from the Metro North train station that takes you into NYC and is only 4 miles from I-95. There are other great seaside towns surrounding Rowayton as well - Darien, Westport, and Greenwich to name a few.
