SPEND JULY AND AUGUST PLAYING BY THE WATER! Or longer if you'd like.

3, 6, 12, 24 MONTH OPPORTUNITY TO LIVE IN OUR HOME: Our property isn't a vacation rental--it's our full-time home! As such, it offers a lot more than what you usually find elsewhere. Nothing on the property was purchased with the thought that 'this will be good enough for our renters.' Everything in our home was hand chosen to make our lives richer. Here's our story: The summer of 2010 was the first time we offered our newly-renovated house as a rental, and we sailed to Maine. All went well and every summer we plan to sail off again, for the summer, or longer. We live and work from our home and love the location! We're walking distance to the train (to NYC), fabulous shopping, a tremendous number of restaurants and free live concerts in the summer. It's great here, but sailing is our passion and we've cruised, living and working aboard, venturing as far south as the Bahamas. We hope our wanderlust will provide a unique opportunity for another family to live in our home for an extended period of time.
