About the property

4BR, 2 bath with huge yard, outdoor bar, central AC. 5 min walk to the beach!

This lovely 4BR, 2 bathroom home in Founders Landing is perfect for a family getaway any time of year. The four large bedrooms can comfortably sleep 8 to 9, and a queen sleeper sofa in the den can allow you to spread out if needed. We've even got a pack-n-play for the littlest northforker. The house features a brand new chef's kitchen, den with flatscreen TV (including cable!), ceiling fans, wireless internet access, and central A/C. In the colder months, cozy up to the warmth of two no fuss gas wood stoves.

Located on a quiet street that's perfect for kids (or adults looking to get away from it all), the flat yard is perfect for barbecuing, with a gas grill and awesome outdoor bar (with fridge and TV). Read on the hammock, lounge in the shade of the covered bar, take an outdoor shower, light up the outdoor fire pit, or play a game of bocce ball. When the sun goes down, kick back with some local wine, and watch a movie al fresco!

The house is perfect for car-less NYC families. It is walking distance (10 min) from both the Hampton Jitney stop and the Southold LIRR station. Once here, you’re just a short 5 minute walk to Founders Landing Beach Park, a lovely Sound beach with picnic tables, swings and slide for the kids, a bathroom and lifeguards on duty (July 1 to Labor Day) with a roped-off swimming area. It is also a short walk into Southold Village featuring shops, restaurants, grocery stores, and more. The Blue Duck Bakery, NoFo Coffee Roasters, Grateful Deli, Wayside Market, Caci, Founder's Tavern and Country Corner Café/Ice Cream Shop are all less than five blocks away, as is the North Fork Table and Inn, one of Long Island’s best restaurants. Or cook at home in a BRAND NEW fully-stocked kitchen with everything you need to put together a locally-sourced meal from local farms. You can also bike to one of the North Fork’s renowned wineries (we have two bikes available for your use). Coming by car? Greenport Village, with its many shops and restaurants, movie theater and carousel, is just a 10 minute drive away.

Great stay/house and host

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there recently and it was a great place for us (3 couples with small kids). The house has a great, open layout on the first floor and the backyard is fantastic for socializing. There's even an outside bar and firepit in addition to the grill. Location was great as we'd take walks to the beach, food truck and stores on the main road. Good stores (butcher, supermarket, pizzeria, wine store, etc.) and restaurants in town as well as neighboring towns. The bedrooms were great for the kids (books, toys, bunk beds, etc.). Host was very responsive to questions and requests. All in all, money well spent and we'd definitely return for our next stay in the North Fork.

Exactly what we needed and wanted!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 7 of us friends from college (and spouses) needed a place to stay out on the North Fork at the beginning of June. Hotels proved to be prohibitively expensive/booked up and we specifically wanted to be in Southold to be close by to another of our friend's family's summer home. Through vrbo, we were fortuitously led to the Kleiman's lovely home. Southold and the house are perfectly located; they are both easily reached by LIRR or via the ferry (some of us were coming from NYC, and some further afield: CT & MA) and it was never more than a 10-15 minute drive to the various wineries nearby or to Greenport. The owners, Mike and his wife Lauren, were conscientious and helpful during the reservation process and beyond, and we were greeted thoughtfully with North Fork potato chips and coffee to be enjoyed during our stay in their clean, comfortable, and well appointed (and incredibly relaxing!) home. 5 of us slept upstairs (2 in one of the Queens, 2 in the twin beds, and one in the room with the bunk beds). Another couple stayed in another one of the Queens downstairs. There was more than enough space and privacy so that we were all comfortable sleeping-wise, the common spaces were spacious and cozy, and the bathrooms were *very* nice (especially for those of us used to tiny Manhattan showers). We were all quite busy during our time in Southold so we only briefly checked out the nearby beach during a stroll through the neighborhood. And we didn't spend much time in the back yard, although we certainly would have liked to. All in all, I would highly recommend staying here; I think we were all ready to move right on in for good!

best week ever :)

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Shipyard Lane home for just over a week and absolutely loved every minute of it. The home is well-appointed with beautiful appliances and furnishings. We ate in most days, enjoying the huge open kitchen and backyard dining area. With a toddler and newborn, we knew we were taking a risk on renting for a week at the beach, but the home and location were both fantastic. There were plenty of toys for our toddler to borrow and enjoy and lots of space so that the crying newborn didn't wake anyone up at night! The home is extremely family friendly, with bikes (with kid seats!), sand toys, a wagon, ride-on cars and other fun summer toys in the garage, an outdoor shower for post-beach rinse-offs, and lots of space to run! Location wise, we were walking distance from cafes and the lunch truck, which we took advantage for daily coffee and croissant walks and most importantly, we were a short walk to Founder's Landing, a beach that doubled as a playground and swimming pool - PERFECT for little swimmers. We walked or biked to the beach every day, where we splashed in the quiet bay waters, caught sand crabs and completely exhausted our toddler before heading home (short 7 minute walk) for long naps! We loved our week in Southold and are very sad that are vacation is over! We sincerely hope to become repeat visitors! The owners, Lauren and Mike, were incredibly responsive to any of our questions and quickly solved any of our (tiny) problems. We were very grateful and felt welcomed and well taken care of!

We had a wonderful time at this welcoming, charming immaculate home. There were three generations of family in our group, and everyone was happy. The kitchen is well-equipped, and the open floor plan downstairs made it easy to hang out together. The neighborhood is lovely, and it's a very short walk to the little beach and playground in one direction, and a bakery and other shops in the other. Lauren and Michael were great to work with -- responsive to questions before and during our stay, and even left out toys appropriate for our grandchild. Highly recommend.

We had an awesome time staying in this house and would recommend it to anyone! We stayed here for two weeks with two young children. The first week my parents stayed with us and the second week my brother in law and his family stayed with us. It was the perfect house and super spacious. Everything was clean, comfortable and well taken care of. The kitchen was beautiful with great appliances and we were able to cook some meals at the house. The backyard had an outdoor bar with a TV and a fire pit for relaxing at night. I also want to note that this house was a short walk to Founder's Landing Beach, which was beautiful and also great for kids as it has swings and a slide right on the sand. The house also included many kids toys, including motor cars, train and a t-ball set, which also made it great for my kids! Finally, the house was not only walking distance to the beach, but also to the town of Southold. It was a great house and it was perfect for both the kids and adults. Would 100% stay here again!

Perfect North Fork Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfection! I cannot say enough great things about it. Our tribe included two families, each with two kids under 5, and one set of grandparents, to celebrate my Mom's 60th. The home is even cuter in real life, but has ample room. It's deceptively big! We used the den to getaway from the action. The backyard is well thought out; we used the bar, outdoor shower, fire pit, picnic table, hammock, and lawn games daily. Our kids stayed busy with the bikes, pool, and other toys. The 10 of us even took a bike/ferry ride to Shelter Island, with some of the house bikes. My sister said the garage is the gift that keeps on giving! We walked to shops/bakeries/coffee shop, and the beach.

Mike and Lauren were great to work with - very responsive and thorough. This was a dream vacation and I can't wait to go back to this awesome home!!
