Welcome to Sayville

A pretty community with a rich history, coastal vibes, and a walkable downtown.
Sayville is a charming small town along the Great South Bay on Long Island’s South Shore. Originally an area known for timber, oysters, and maritime industries, Sayville has transformed into an upscale community with a resort town feel. Colonial, Victorian, Cottage, and Tudor architectural style homes line shady tree-lined neighborhoods. Boat enthusiasts may find the perfect house with their own dock along the bay with fantastic views. Commuters can hop onto the LIRR at Sayville Station and enjoy easy transport into the city. Minutes away is the Sunrise Highway which takes drivers west into NYC or east to the Hamptons.

A nautical town in New York’s Suffolk County, this residential community has a quaint and walkable downtown on Main Street with an eclectic mix of boutique shops and restaurants for every need. Beautiful bayfront living is an ideal place for activities related to boating, sailing, fishing, and having fun at the beach. Residents can come together with the community to celebrate at the annual Seafood Festival held at the Long Island Maritime Museum in August.
