About Louise Vaux

We discovered Bellport by chance back in 2000 & bought a property there pretty much straight away as it was such a magical place. We lived in the city during the week but came out every weekend & vacation. Our kids grew up in the house & enjoyed the safe environs of the village. We have now been posted overseas for a few years & so offer our beautiful home to others to enjoy.

Louise Vaux purchased this house in 2001

Why Louise Vaux chose Bellport

Perfect location within walking distance to everything yet quiet & peaceful.

Homely & cosy.

Safe & private.

Great free flowing entertainment space.

It is not suitable for large groups of adults or teens. Minimum rental age is 30.

It is a beautiful family home best suited to a family or two with children.

What makes this house unique

This is our unique much loved family home & we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Location! Location! The house is perfectly situated on pretty street near bay and charming town.

  • 5 of 5

We love the spot, house and yard! Outside we especially enjoyed the long pool, the outdoor shower, the back patio, the front porch and yard. The front porch is perfect for cocktails and some sunset viewing, the back patio for dining out on nice summer evenings. The high flying swing and the toys for adults and kids in the garage were also fun. Inside, the play spaces upstairs and the children's rooms are the most most charming and fun I've ever seen--and also fine for adult guests. The screened porch room is a treat for hanging out or reading. Another treat were the two large downstairs bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and my deep, huge bathtub. The layout of the house is great--giving lots of privacy and offering spaces for every mood. And there are tons of thoughtful touches, such as the extra refrigerator and freezer in the basement. The host is responsive, generous, and helpful, including leaving sharp knives and an array of spices in the kitchen, etc., to responding promptly to any question or concern.

Beautiful home! Gorgeous & friendly town! Hope to make this a yearly vacation spot!!

  • 5 of 5

I must say this was one of the most wonderful vacations we have ever had! We were two families with 6 small children between us (a 4 year old, twin 3 year olds, twin 2 year olds and a 7 month old). I'm exhausted just writing that! Louise was so accommodating and brave to let our group come stay in her home with that many small children and we are happy to say the house remained in tact! This home is perfect for large groups or families! The playroom upstairs and fenced stairs were perfect to gather our young crew. The bedrooms and house itself is beautiful. Everything you could need was thought of and there at your disposal - from plates/utensils for kids to ample bedding/pillows/towels/cookware, from books/movies, from plenty of well spaced bathrooms, from beach towels to a high chair and pack and play for the young ones to even exotic spices and seasonings. And the pool, small slide and tree swing were beautiful and provided endless entertainment for our families! The neighborhood and town is gorgeous and the people are so friendly. It is true you will note that there is no Air Conditioning downstairs and although that would be a plus, due to the bay breeze, the lower level rarely felt warm. The house is really just a lovely place to stay. We look forward to staying again and perhaps making this a yearly vacation home for our family!

Gorgeous house, very comfortable, beautiful garden and pool, all very well kept. Excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous house, beatifully decorated and very well maintained, perfect for families with children. It has all the things you need and more to make you feel at home, great attention to detail. Excellent location near small beaches and nice little town of Bellport - although house, garden and pool are so nice you dont want to leave it. Very attentive hosts, all ready to make the best of our long weekend. Would definitely recommend and stay again!

Exquisitely cozy, tranquil joy for our family gathering and visit in lovely, historic Bellport

  • 5 of 5

We were warmly welcomed and fully cared for by the owner and manager before and at arrival time. The gorgeously appointed home exceeded our expectations, and we were all able to deeply relax in comfort in the peaceful energy of the property. All of our needs were met. We're grateful for the opportunity to have stayed here and visit in the town where we grew up. It was a special treat to be able to walk to the docks, and we imagine how great it is in the summer to walk to the ferry for a beach adventure day. We really treasured our reunion time here and have wonderful memories of our visit. Looking forward to another! Abundant thanks to all~

Terrific Home for a Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this clean, beautiful, well-appointed home. This is not a party house. This is a well-maintained home that is arranged just perfectly for 1-2 families with kids. Everything you might need is here. The decor is lovely. The owners were very responsive to any questions we had. The pool and back deck / yard area are especially terrific. We had some great games of frisbee catch over the pool! Town is sweet, and really perfect for a quiet getaway. Enjoy!

Bellport is a very special place - closer to the city than the Hamptons & reachable in 1 hour & 15 mins from Midtown tunnel (on a good day). Historically we turned off the LIE on a Friday just as the taillights started to glow & the Hampton's traffic jam began!

It's a small, unique village with year round residents & a thriving arts community. There are a handful of great Zagat rated restaurants within walking distance & if you want the Hampton's scene you can drive there in anywhere from 30-60 minutes.

There is an excellent public beach at Smith's Point or a smaller kid friendly beach a short walk or bike ride away.
