Beds: There is 1 King Bed, plus one rollaway bed which is best suited for a child or a small adult. (See Photos)

This is my Summer home, Upstairs is living quarters for my family when they come to visit, downstairs are 2 studio apartments, one of which is my office. The rental unit is only available when I don't have family here.

The space

This is a studio apartment, single king bed, and a rollaway bed for a child.
Please include any children in your booking request.
One 'unmentioned' child recently did some damage to the property.

failed to do this which resulted in children damaging the property.

At some point I am going to have to restrict the renting from families with
'toddlers' ie: 2-5 as left un monitored they tend to pull things, bend things, and insert things.

Studio means just that. If the weather is cooperating, all is good, but some folks might feel confined if they must remain indoors due to rain or cold. Booking cancellations are not a problem, no point paying to stay when there's a storm in the forecast..

I've had 3 adults stay with no problem, as they were working a local event during the days, so it was only for sleeping. And I should repeat, the rollaway bed is best suited for a child.

Recently a guest was shocked to see that the second bed was a rollaway. They admitted that they had not seen all of the photos, and had not read the entire description.

There is a small fridge with water and orange juice. A 2 burner stove, Coffee maker, Coffee cups, coffee, sugar, cream. cutllery, pots/pans, ( I rarely see anyone cook here).

A new microwave as well as a new Kueric Coffee Maker have recently been installed. (See photos) .

See the photo of what's called a "compact kitchen" , Sink, mini fridge, and 2 burner stove.

Bathroom is a shower / toilet, sink with towels.
There is a large electric fan, I have just installed an air conditioning unit.
although this part of the house tends to stay pretty cool. There is a dehumidifier as well.

This apartment is best suited max for up to 2 adults and 1 child
NO DOGS! I have tried guests with dogs and find it a burden to sanitize afterwards.

Yes, the beach facing windows do open.

Please email your intentions when requesting to stay. ie: I have received inquiries with no indication of how many people, no photo on the AirBnb profile, and no references. So far I have been 100% satisfied with my guests, and vice versa.

I recently had an 'older couple' who commented on the many steps down the side of the house (see photos). If you have mobility issues, then this may not be the place for you.
This space has a 7' ceiling. If you are taller than 6'3", you may feel cramped, and maybe this is not suited for you.

3 DAY MAXIMUM please. There are exceptions, Hampton Classic employees, and Bay Street theater employees, and companies doing local promotional activities.

Guest access

Check in is 2PM! I'm trying to change this. Right now, most of the time when you book in, I will block the previous day so you can come in early in the day. You can confirm this with me when you book or inquire.

The check out time 11:00am remains firm, as this is my cleaner's schedule. They won't come in if they see a guest's car in the driveway..

Please keep this in mind when booking. If you need to stay later than 11, please book an extra day.

There is driveway parking for one vehicle.

You have access to the private beach, 2 mountain bikes, They are fitted for taller individuals. (2 recent guests, about 5'3" said the bikes were too big for them)

(The Village is only 5 min by bike, 15 min walking) and 2 single person kayaks. Kayaks are locked unless asked for in advance. For use in season only.

High speed internet access.

Interaction with guests

Please Observe The Check Out Time: 11am! This room has a very high turnover and it takes time to ready it for the next guest. This is my cleaner's schedule. They won't come in if they see a guest's car in the driveway.

I am always available, but I do play gigs at night in the area. My home phone forwards to my mobile, so when I'm out, i can be reached for any sudden needs, questions etc.

All improvements (Microwave, Coffee maker etc.) are results of guest comments, so please feel free to make suggestion / comments.

Other things to note

I am not captious (adj: Looking only for fault.) in my reviews of guests. I don't look for minute imperfections, erros, etc. I make my review based mostly on how the house is left on departure.

Occasionally, things break, no big deal, just let me know. Finding a missing or broken wine glass is not fun.

Should your toddler damage something, again, just let me know. Most of my Guest reviews are glowing. I've hosted some great people.

Your Reviews: Please, write what you wish, but any negative remarks should be addressed to the 'private comments' section, unless your intent is otherwise.
Check in is 2:00 PM! Check out 11:00am

I have tried guests with dogs twice. and for now would prefer not to have pets. My main concern is the possibility of guests with pet allergies coming in afterwards. Its is also additional clean up involved, per hair is unavoidable, and with back to back quests, the turnaround time starts to suffer.
Also, regarding dogs, there is a local ordinance keeping dogs from the beach during the Summer months. It is rarely enforced, but on occasion a neighbor may voice a concern. I have neighbors with dogs, and they seem to work it out.

This is a great location, with access to the beach and walkable to town. My husband and I love riding bikes, so it was great to have access to Ray's 2 bikes. The beach was quiet and peaceful; we really enjoyed walking it in the morning. The shower is a bit small, but my husband and I are on the taller side (my husband is 6'4, and I am 5'7). General cleanliness of the unit could be better, i.e., dust in the corners and windowsills, but it wasn't a problem at all and the space was generally clean. We also didn't spend much time in the space anyway. Updated bedsheets, blankets and pillows would be a nice touch :) We really enjoyed staying here though, it was all we needed. Ray was very helpful and responsive - a great host!

Ray's place is a little piece of paradise! A cozy and comfortable unit with everything we needed and the town is a few minutes away. Many shops and restaurants. But...who needs that? Ray's deck and beachfront were all we wanted. Ray, graciously, allowed us to use his kayaks and bikes. We had a beautiful day and highly recommend a stay here.

We had a wonderfully relaxing anniversary weekend stay at Ray's studio. The studio was exactly as described - clean and comfortable with everything you need. One of the things that makes this studio so special is the beautiful deck and private beach, the other is how friendly and accommodating Ray was as a host. Sag Harbor is a lovely village and is a very short bike or walk from the studio, with some great options for lunch and dinner. Thanks for a great weekend!
