Interaction with GuestsWe will try to be available to guests to welcome and orient them to the space and area. Guests should feel free to contact us with whatever questions they might have. We are open and friendly, and love to be helpful. If guests prefer minimal interaction, that is also acceptable. The NeighborhoodSea Cliff is a unique Victorian village on the Long Island Sound. As its name describes, its terrain is cliff-like and hilly. There are many things to do in our community. One can stroll down the narrow side streets taking in the architecture, hang out at the beach listening to live music in the summer, philosophize over a cappuccino at the Sea Cliff Bistro, or lay on the earth at one of Sea Cliff's sixteen small parks. Our home is just a couple of blocks from the main street.
