In July 2014, a corporation named Southold Sunsets bought a small beach cottage on a third of an acre adjacent to Kenney’s Beach in Southold.
The company name surely derives from the location of the property, which abuts the beach parking lot, where many local residents sit in their cars to watch the sun sink slowly into Long Island Sound.
“Welcome to The Beach House!” reads an ad on homeaway.com promoting a five-bedroom rental on a private road in Orient.
The “large entertaining home” has an average price tag of $586 per night and sleeps 14 people, according to the listing.
Fourteen is also the minimum number of nights the home can be rented for, the ad states.
A calendar on the website shows no bookings for this summer.
