About Eric and Jana
We both grew up in Suffolk County on Long Island. Eric is an IT professional and Jana is a Speech-Language Pathologist . We love animals and have (3) rescue cats. We have volunteered at local shelters. We like to ski, golf, exercise, watch movies and spend time with friends. We love to travel and to-date, Hawaii has been our favorite destination.
Why Eric and Jana chose Smithtown
We chose this property because of it's privacy, convenience to parkways and public transit, while still being connected to nature. We have many species of birds, including Cardinals, Robins, Finch, Bob White, Barn Owl, Red Headed Woodpecker and have even spotted Osprey and Red Tail hawk on occasion... right from our own back yard! We also see the cuter, furry creatures as well. These include our resident rabbit family, fox, raccoon, possum and white tail deer. Our local train station is 10 minutes away. Islip airport is 15 minutes away. Our neighborhood is super safe and blissfully quiet. Yet we are a stones throw away from several bustling towns with great shopping, food and nightlife.

A Relaxing retreat
Our hosts Eric & Jana always make us feel at home. This is our third year we have visited Long Island and stayed here. The view of the backyard with the squirrels, birds and rabbits scampering around amidst the tall beautiful trees is very relaxing and peaceful. A very comfortable and homey atmosphere. A hidden jewel.
Thanks for staying with us again! We appreciate your continued patronage. We hope to see you and Bill again next summer.
The host, Eric and Jana, are very friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed to stay here. The facility are convenient and the neighborhood is quiet. The feeling of stay is in like forest. Sometimes I enjoyed to find birds, rabbits and squirrels. I want to stay here again. Thank you.
Thank you for your kind review, and thank you for choosing us. We wish you and your family much luck and success in your new home.
Cozy, comfortable apartment in a convenient location
Our stay here was wonderful! The apartment itself is clean, spacious and well appointed. Our hosts, Eric and Jana, were gracious and very attentive. They greeted us upon our arrival and ensured all was to our liking throughout our stay. My husband and I were also very impressed when Jana reached out to us to see if we had returned home safely...we will definitely be staying at this property again. Thank you for everything Eric and Jana!
Thank you for your review, and thanks for choosing to stay with us again! Keep us in mind for your future travels.
Clean, Convenient, Comfortable
Jana and Eric’s apartment is a suitably priced, very clean, comfortable, and conveniently located apartment. Its location is especially convenient for anyone desiring access to eastern Nassau, western Suffolk, and central Suffolk counties. Also, the home is located within a very asthetically pleasing and quiet wooded section of Smithtown, Long Island, New York. I highly recommend this HomeAway apartment to anyone seeking a modestly priced, clean, and comfortable place to stay during their travels.
Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure having you stay with us. Good luck in your future travels, and keep us in mind if you will need accommodations in our area in the future.
Kind regards, Eric and Jana
Nice place but too close to the owner’s Living space
The apartment was nice but their was a problem with the air conditioning so it felt to warm inside a lot of the time. Also the apartment is directly under the owner’s main living space so you could hear their footsteps. The parking space was very far away which I found to be inconvenient. The owners were nice but seem a little nervous having guests on the property.
We are sorry that you were disappointed with your accommodations. Outside the concerns on AC unit (which we have not received before or after your stay), you never mentioned any of these other inconveniences on the many times we reached out to you to check in and see how you were doing. In each reply, the only concern you reported was the temperature. My wife and I both work full time, so the footsteps would have been in the early morning, and evening. You never said anything to us about this. If the parking space was too far (its approximate 150 feet from the door to the space), we could have allowed you parking access on our ample driveway (approximately 75 feet door to driveway) as we did when you unloaded and loaded your vehicle. I'll assume there was a specific need for a shorter walk for you.
In closing, thank you for your review and thank you for staying with us. We will use your feedback to improve our place for future guest experiences.

Lovely one bedroom apartment perfect for two
This was our second year that we spent 2 months with Jana and Erik. They are great hosts and checked frequently to see that all our needs were met. I would
definitely recommend staying there.
Thanks for the review Joan. It was nice seeing you again. We wish you safe travels back to your home. Hope to see you again next year.
We are located close to parks that are approximately 600 acres, beaches, shopping, paddle boarding and kayaking. Historic StonyBrook and Port Jefferson also have shopping and cafes -Danfords Hotel and Marina is quite nice. If you want to explore New York City, the popular Hamptons area, NOFO or SOFO Wineries, or visit the quaint towns of Bridgehampton, Watermill, Orient Point, and Sag Harbor, they are all about an 1 to 1 1/2 hours away. We have many eateries ranging from sit down casual pizza places to upscale restaurants serving Mexican, Italian, sushi and seafood. There are also some local vegan/vegetarian grocery stores and small cafes. We have a Whole Foods right around the corner.
