Newly renovated house on Long Island, NY- close to beaches and 40 miles from NYC

My house is a 3 bedroom/ 2 bath house in Babylon Village, Long Island NY. The house was gutted and remodeled in 2016. Babylon Village is a great location for visitors from all over. The house is a 15-20 min walk to the train station and a 1 hour train ride into Manhattan. It is a 15 min drive to some of the best beaches in the country. Additionally, the famous Long Island wineries are only a 1 hour drive out east. But just as nice is Babylon Village itself. Again, it is a 15-20 min walk into the village where you can find shops, restaurants, pubs, and parks. My car is available for the exchange. It is a Honda CRV (automatic). I have everything you will need for a day at the beach- chairs, umbrella, blanket, towels, cooler and beach pass.
My sister has allergies to most cats. For that reason we cannot exchange to a house that has any pets.

The following is some information to help you understand the area a little bit...

About Our Family

I am a single teacher who loves to travel. I finished the 50 states with my twin sister before our 30th birthday. I am looking to do an exchange in the summer of 2020. It is likely that my twin sister will join me and perhaps my aunt and cousin. I suppose it will depend on the details of the exchange.

Lifestyle

I am a history teacher who loves to travel.
