Hamptons Weekend Rentals

Quick Getaways to New York Beaches

When it comes to glamorous summer destinations, the Hamptons are often at the top of the list. These beach towns are located on the south fork of Long Island, east of New York City. While many people are interested in rentals for the entire summer, there are also options for Hamptons weekend rentals. If you're looking to spend a few days with the stylish and famous, plan a weekend getaway to the Hamptons. With the space and convenience of a vacation rental, your trip will be glamorous and comfortable.

Before you book Hamptons weekend rentals, there are a few things to know. Not all Hamptons destinations offer the same atmosphere and choosing one will largely depend on your personal preferences. For example, East Hampton is a chic destination where shopping is just as popular as spending time on the beach. If you prefer something quieter and more relaxed, check out beautiful Sag Harbor.

Another thing many first-time travelers to the Hamptons don't know is that different towns and beaches are in very close driving distance to each other. Some travelers are determined to find a rental in a certain area, only to discover that they could have saved significant money just by renting a few miles away.

Finding Your Weekend Rental

The Hamptons are generally an escape for the city dwellers of Manhattan. That means that many homes in the Hamptons are rented for the summer, but some are still available for weekend rentals. If you have a specific weekend in mind and would like a house with particular amenities, be sure to start your search in advance. That four-bedroom house in Bridgehampton with a chef's kitchen will be easier to find if you start looking early.

Another important factor for rentals is holidays. Some of the busiest weekends in the Hamptons are Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day. On these weekends, rentals are often reserved far in advance, so be sure to make your plans as early as possible. That being said, you might find last minute deals if there are cancellations.

What to Do During a Hamptons Weekend

From Amagansett to Southampton, there are many ways to spend your weekend in the Hamptons. Beyond the beach, this stretch of Long Island is known for two things: shopping and dining. Here you will find local restaurants of incredible quality, both for casual meals and fine dining. There's no shortage of fine-dining restaurants or designer boutiques in the Hamptons. If you're interested in farm to table food, check out the Living Room Restaurant in East Hampton. For shopping, Main Street offers everything from Michael Kors to Cynthia Rowley.

Something you might not know about the Hamptons is that there are wineries nearby. While the north fork of Long Island is better known for its wineries, the south fork is home to two wineries that are worth visiting for a tasting or a tour. Both Channing Daughters and Wolffer Estate create delicious Long Island wines. Some travelers planning a weekend trip might choose to skip local attractions and spend all their time sunbathing on the beautiful local beaches. Water sports can keep the kids entertained while parents relax.

Hamptons weekend rentals will provide plenty of entertainment without leaving your new home away from home. Some rentals have pools, barbecues, and spacious living space for family movie nights. However you decide to spend your weekend in the Hamptons, you might be hooked on a lifestyle that is all glamour, style, and indulgence.
