Rising Sun

Brand new, gorgeous oceanfront property is available for weekly rentals. This amazing property enjoys spectacular open-ocean views, private shore ledges and a cobblestone beach. The views and shoreline are dramatic and breathtaking. The cottage is a haven for your group of up to 12. Affecting architectural features highlight the cottage throughout, starting with a mind-bending suspended staircase in the foyer, as you enter. Colorful walls and décor create an invigorating and relaxing environment. Great attention and care by the owners was applied to creating a wonderful vacation experience, focusing on seven elements to enhance guests’ vacation experience: views, light, color, enjoyment & comfort, cooking & dining, dogs, and work. There is easy access to the ocean and the spectacular rocky ledges ocean that extend out into Frenchman’s Bay. The 320 feet of totally private shorefront, combined with the 3+ acres of wooded land, makes for a memorable and exceptional vacation destination.

Rising Sun is a 3-story cottage. Entering on the 1st  floor, or middle level, the foyer is spacious and incredibly impressive with the suspended staircase (reminding us of the Guggenheim Museum in NYC). Also on this floor is a king bedroom with full bathroom, spacious great room (living room and dining area) and spectacular chef’s kitchen.  There is also another ½ bathroom on the 1st floor. There is a wood burning fireplace in the living room, as well as wonderful deck overlooking the ocean. Practically every room has this expansive ocean view!

On the top floor is the master bedroom suite, with a king bed, very high skylight, and a private bathroom with whirlpool tub and 8 foot by 4 foot shower room. There is also a queen bedroom; and a bedroom with three twin beds. The queen and twins rooms share a bathroom with tub and shower (water views!). There is also a lovely sitting area with wonderful views.

On the lower level (ground floor), which is accessible to a wheelchair, there is a family room that can be arranged for dining as well. It’s flanked by two dual-purpose rooms – the Yoga/Bedroom (queen) and another queen bedroom, sharing a full bathroom. The Gym/Bedroom is adjacent to the Dog Room, and has a shower that can be used by either humans or dogs!

Every attention to detail has been made at this gorgeous house. The electronics for the house include: a very advanced Home Theater in the family room (ground floor), with amazing Surround Sound, and the best video (whether streamed from our high-speed internet, or sourced from DVD’s, or just plain old cable TV provided by our Time Warner package of sports, movies, and other cable content). All rooms on the first floor have speakers, with input to them controlled and switchable from the central control room.  The ground floor Family Room has the Home Theater Surround Sound set-up, which can be used for music as well.  The second floor Master Suite has its own high fidelity music set-up. Every room (except for bathrooms) is connected to the house-wide high speed wired network, and has two Cat 5 network outlets into which you can plug your computer (or other audio/visual or electronic devices benefitting from high-speed, dependable internet wired network). In addition there is high-speed WiFi supported by the central modem. A pack 'n play is also available.

Other amenities include A/C, a hot tub, high chair and a large dog run. There is also a hot tub for guests to use. Click here for a more complete list of household items/ amenities.

The kitchen is magnificent! The owners are in the food business in New York — Bellavista Market, offers Only The Best, At Its Best™— and the kitchen, pantry, dining areas were designed to reflect and take advantage of their expertise.

Rising Sun is pet-friendly. The house will be set up, before arrival, with attractive protective covers on couches, easy chairs and beds. They have a secure, comfortable dog room in which to keep your dogs if you leave them at home when you go out. Your dogs can enjoy the four dog beds (each covered with a freshly laundered sheet), the chairs and couches, the sunny rugs, and the beds. There are separate bed linens for families with dogs, so if they’re used to sleeping with you at home, Rising Sun is your home away from home. There is no pet fee but you are expected to pay for any dog-related damage should that occur.
