The property is excellent - comfortable, spotlessly clean, and completely charming - we unanimously agreed that it was precisely what one thinks a "hamptons - getaway place" should be like. It was a bike ride to a beach but the pool and patio areas were very welcoming and i confess we lounged around the pool at the expense of the beach more than i would normally have done - it was that nice and relaxing. The amenities that the owner provides are all top-notch, modern and thoughtful even down to a state of the art, well-sounding music system that played my IPAD playlists via bluetooth. Even the basics such as towels and sheets were high end "Bloomingdale's-level" quality. In fact the amenities and furnishings were so unexpectedly fine that we speculated that the owner must use the property for their own use most of the time and rent it only occasionally - quite a high compliment for a rental property!
As for the location it was very good. Convenient to shopping for one-off needs and a short (6 mile) drive to the town of Easthampton for just about everything, and a short bike ride to the beach, (though longer to the ocean beach), it was still in a quiet residential area, which suited isa perfectly - quiet, yet close enough to take advantage of the "hamptons nightlife" for dinner etc.
Now one last comment about the owner - i have never stayed in a private rental accommodation where the owner was as accommodating as this proprietor - she was just top class and special in dealing with every one of our questions and needs, even anticipating our needs before we knew we had them! It was as if I had a personal concierge during my entire stay.
So we had it all for one great week - great accommodations, excellent strategic location and a caring owner that actually enjoyed ensuring we would have a wonderful stay. She succeeded!!
Thank you for allowing us to stay at your fabulous home!!
