About Bill Hennessey

My father bought this property 40 years ago and built this beautiful house in 2002. Our family uses it often, we enjoy boating, fishing, kayaking, walking to the beach and most of all the beautiful relaxing views and fresh ocean breeze. I grew up on Long Island but now live in Texas and have limited time to enjoy this house, so I'm willing to share it with others who enjoy being on the water.

Bill Hennessey purchased this house in 2009

Why Bill Hennessey chose USA

As a third generation Captain who spent many years on the water I never get tired of the view. Quiet area with beautiful beaches you can walk too, watch the sun rise and set, feel the ocean breezes and listen to the sound of breaking waves....

What makes this house unique

This is truly a unique home with great water views, two large wrap around decks with a large great room upstairs, perfect for parties and family get together.

A large luxurious outdoor shower with changing room was added for 2015...

Awesome house in a great location with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

Our large family spent several weeks in this house and our expectations were more than met. The house was well stocked and we did not want for anything. The owners were very attentive and any small concern that arouse was handled immediately. For example, when informed that a deck chair was broken the replacement arrived within a few hours.

The house has two large decks and a very large family room/kitchen area which all have unobstructed views of the Great South Bay. Morning coffee on the upper deck with nothing but the sounds of nature and a killer view was a potent stress reliever. We were very impressed by how quiet the neighborhood was which allowed us to be serenated by the sounds of nature. Dinner on the upper deck was only rivaled by siestas on the lower deck. Not enough can be said about the outdoor shower. By the middle of the first week almost all showers were taken in the outdoor cedar shower.

The location is ideal as our young adult children would either take the two minute drive to Smith Point Beach every day or take out a kayak from the back yard. They would come back for meals and then back out to enjoy the bay or ocean. We have a small boat which we were able to keep at the floating dock and a small jet ski which we would launch right from the backyard. We placed a fire ring in the backyard and had some wonderful nights under the stars along with some very tasty S’mores.

Overall the entire experience was wonderful and we would highly recommend this house to others.

Fabulous house/Incredible views!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time! Not only is the house stunning and perfectly situated and appointed, but the view is nothing short of spectacular. The beach is a short walk away and other amenities are super close. The dock for kayaking and other water sports followed by an outdoor shower are the perfect combination. Two wrap around decks gave options of sun bathing or not. Grilling on the top deck was so much fun and then having a wonderful dinner at the expansive dining room table made some fantastic family and friend memories. I hope I get the chance to stay here again. Thank you for making my vacation so special. :) Debbie M.

Great location for family gathering over Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

This is a large house that easily housed 7 adults comfortably for the Thanksgiving holiday. House is well equipped with lots of cooking supplies and entertainment equipment. Bill was easy to get in touch with , so this proved to be a worry free vacation. The location is great, near beaches, stores, and highway. Highly recommend this for group gathering.

Can't Wait to Go Back!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house as one of two houses for a work project. The house was AMAZING. The location was fantastic. One of the guys even went kayaking one morning. It's a little out of the way, but literally RIGHT on the water. So comfortable, too. Everyone was really happy, and Bill totally took care of us. Thank you so much!!!

Tranquility Base appropriately named

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental is perfect! The owners are wonderful people, the property is well-maintained, comfortable and perfectly located to the beach. There in not one thing I would change about the property - even the swans are charming. Can't wait to go back next year!

Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this beautiful home on the water...gorgeous interior with every amenity ....loved the proximity of the beach, the breathtaking view off the top deck, and the daily swan family visit. We went to the beach twice each day ...waves were big which our group loved...and then back again for a sunset swim and to hear the band. Thanks for everything Bill!
