About Deborah Malden
Our family of five lives in Boulder, Colorado but has vacationed in Bellport for the past twenty years. We originally commuted to Bellport from New York City on summer weekends. When our three boys were young, we greatly appreciated the easy 1-1.5 hour commute and the many Village of Bellport amenities. We enjoyed Bellport so much that we have continued to visit every year since moving to Boulder in 1999. Our children have participated in the wonderful Bellport day camp, and the whole family has enjoyed the world-class sailing program made available through the yacht club and excellent tennis and golf lessons from the Village of Bellport Country Club. In many ways, Bellport is our home and we are thrilled to finally own a vacation home in a very special Village of Bellport location.
Deborah Malden purchased this House in 2013
Why Deborah Malden chose Bellport
A short walk or bike ride to the ferry which takes passengers to Fire Island and Bellport's very own Ho-Hum Beach where you'll find a snack shack and showers on the bay side and the all-important (if you have children) life-guard stand at the ocean. The beach stretches for miles to the east and west. Bellport's quaint village and marina are home to summer-time concerts where villagers and out-of-town visitors mingle and feel far away from New York City, which is only 65 miles to the west. Please note that the ferry is available to Bellport Village ID holders and their guests and runs seasonally seven days a week. See bellportvillage dot org for information about the ferry schedule. Village IDs are available to renters of this property and cost $275 per family of five. Village ID holders and their guests may also play golf at the Bellport Country Club.

Beautifully Maintained Home in Bellport
This home is perfect in every way. Sparkling clean, kitchen has everything you could think of, comfy living room, fireplace in dining area, half bath on 1st floor complete with washer dryer and a huge sun room. Upstairs has 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms. Beds are beyond comfortable and master has a deck to watch the sunrise.
Owner is super responsive and property manager is always available to help or answer questions. Quiet street, walk to bay, and short walk to The pretty village of Bellport. I highly recommend this unique and comfortable home.
Excellent house to stay in Bellport
The house is very nice and in good condition. The beds are comfortable. We had a few problems with the sink and stove but the manager was right on them. This is our second stay there and we would stay again in the future.
Comfortable and very well located.
We selected this home as the size suited our needs. It was comfortable and spacious on a beautiful piece of land. The property manager was very easy to deal with - we only contacted her for drop off and pick up of keys, no issues!
Quiet setting with minimal traffic
This home is in a nice quiet neighborhood. The home itself is dated but definitely adequate to meet the needs of a family. Beds are comfortable. The owners and Judy welcomed us with a bottle of wine and cheese/crackers, which was a nice surprise and much appreciated! Thank you!!!
We were delighted to host you! Renovation plans are in the works but in the meantime, it’s important that guests review the pictures posted on the VRBO website. These show our home as it is today - a modest, mid-century home that has been updated and newly furnished to meet the needs of visitors looking for a quiet, comfortable, and sunny Bellport home in a great location.
All our best,
Deborah + Michael
Wonderful immaculate home close to everything
We had such a lovely time staying in this comfortable home within walking distance to all that Bellport Village has to offer. This quiet peaceful home had great flow, with separate living, dining, and screened in porch so the whole family could spread out and enjoy multiple activities. Property manager Judy was friendly and attentive to all our needs. The house itself is remarkably well-equipped, and the kitchen was so well organized that everything was located just where you'd expect to find it in a well-functioning household. We needed a small repair done during our stay and a friendly handyman showed up within the hour to perform the repair, we couldn't have asked for better service. The bed linens were top quality high thread count, it was like being in a hotel. Plus the view of the Bay from the upstairs back deck was breathtaking. All in all a terrific experience in a meticulously maintained home.
Lovely comfortable house close to town
I would just like to say........visitors from the UK take note! There is more to the state of New York than just Manhattan Island......try Long Island for a beach holiday, its great!!
We recently visited the USA from the UK staying a few days with our son in Forest Hills, a week in Bellport, and a few more days in Forest Hills. Bellport is an easy drive from Forest Hills, taking less than an hour. The house was really comfortable with everything a long-haul visitor could require, including lots of towels, beach towels and four bikes! The bedding and beds were very luxurious, especially the super king in the master bedroom! And the balcony off the master bedroom was a treat; so nice to be able to sit and watch the morning sun glinting off the sea.
The town itself is within easy walking distance of the house, as are the shops and restaurants, which was why I chose Bellport as opposed to other towns where a car appeared to be necessary to get around. And the town is really pretty with its small harbour, neat gardens and pretty flowers.
The property owner was very generous with information, and the property manager was most helpful, bringing round supplies of bin bags, washing up liquid etc as soon as we contacted her.
A very relaxing place to stay, and so quiet too!
