Overview

About the property

Private Ocean Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath plus Outdoor Shower, Sleeps Six.

A MESSAGE FROM PETER AND WENDY: People who know this place love it. It’s unique, a throwback to a different Hamptons.

Set up to enjoy the best part of Long Island’s Ocean Front, the cottage is totally private and gorgeous. Landscaped and well thought out as our home to yours.

Built for comfort and fun. We’re WIFI-ed, BlueTooth-ed and Sonos-Fied. We stream and download. We stay cool inside; or build a fire indoors or out. We’re on the Ocean; and we’re on the Bay, too. We walk to the beach on our own private path.

The cottage offers wonderful outdoor living; amazing sunrises and sunsets with some of the best natural lighting in the world.

Dubbed "the Honeymoon Cottage", it has brought us nothing but joy over the years. Best suited for a family or couple.

Our cottage was built in 1932 on a small private drive south of highway 27 and sits by itself in the dunes and pine forest along the Atlantic Ocean.The cottage is beautifully furnished, has an awesome country kitchen, is fully air-conditioned, and has a great wood-burning fireplace. It has been lovingly maintained and upgraded year after year. The grounds are lovely. Rental includes all utilities; plus maid service, grounds maintenance, trash pick-up and spraying for mosquitos/ticks with environmentally-safe and affective product, each service performed weekly. Located East of Amagansett on the Napeague Strip, this cottage is an inholding in Napeague State Park (Dune and Wildlife Preserve). The ocean is in your backyard, with miles of private and pristine Atlantic Ocean beachfront. Incredible sunrises and sunsets with views of Ocean and Bay.

In the dunes, off a private lane South of the highway through the Napeague Stretch, it has tremendous views of Napeague Bay, Lazy Point, and the Ocean. Surrounded by Napeague State Park, a 1364 acre dune preserve abundant with native wildlife and vegetation, there is a private path leading from the cottage to the quiet White Sands Beach bordering the park. Lazy Point and Napeague Harbor offer an entirely different environment from the ocean side. The Bay side teams with wildlife and is a wetland haven for birds and waterfowl, especially Ospreys.

The cottage is turnkey. Equipped with plenty of patio and lawn furniture, beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, and towels. There are three beach bikes.

The cottage has two lovely bedrooms on first floor, each with two twin beds, and spacious upstairs master bedroom with queen bed, all with high end mattresses and fine linens and Egytpian cotton bath sheets, one Full Bath on main floor plus an OUTDOOR SHOWER.

Fabulous dune-top patio with hammock and loungers, dining table and chairs, great view of both the ocean and harbor. There is a Weber Gas Grill, a patio fully shaded with old growth junipers, outdoor dining table and chairs seating six. Sonos wifi music inside and out.

Our cottage has been enjoyed by outdoor minded fun loving guests who return because of our unique location, privacy and proximity to miles of beach, bay and oceanfront.

About Peter and Wendy Israel

Having grown up on Long Island, Peter has a love for ocean living. He was one of the original Montauk surfers from the 60s back when things were quiet in the Hamptons. He introduced beach life to his family with visits from Colorado to the ocean cottage every summer, all summer since the early 80s.

Peter and Wendy Israel purchased this cottage in 1980

Why Peter and Wendy Israel chose Hamptons

The cottage offers privacy yet is only minutes away from the quaint town of Amagansett, the Napeague Bay, and best of all, the Ocean. Built as the 'Honeymoon Cottage' in the 1930s, it has all it's original charm plus the modern conveniences of today. The Best of Both Worlds in our opinion!

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage has places to lounge and picnic in the sun, a fabulous hammock for a snooze with vistas of the ocean and bay, gardens all around, cheerful sunroom, country kitchen and cozy fireplace in the living room. An irrigation system keeps the grounds lush. Our rates include everything, Including weekly housekeeping, lawn care and trash removal. We use an effective, non-toxic and environmentally safe product to spray for ticks and mosquitos weekly. All other amenities are included. An extended season is available starting early and/or ending in late September.

Everything You Need, Right Here.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week, without guests, in July,2014, and we just had the most relaxing time, even while maintaining a lot of on the go activities, as we are not sit around and read type of people.

It's hard to believe how isolated you are here, even though you are close to everywhere you want to be, like the beach, or Montauk, or Sag Harbor, or East Hampton, or Amagansett Square, which we really liked. I mean, you are not visible by neighbors anywhere on this property, THAT'S how private it is.

The house is very charming, with so much attention to detail from corner to corner. It's obvious a lot of love went into this house for many years. All of the bedrooms are really nicely done. After a week there, you feel like it's your own place, which is good because you then want to take extra good care of it. We certainly didn't want to leave when our time was up. There's a lot of fun to be had in the Hamptons, I'll say that.

We loved our long bike ride out to Lazy Point, it's so beautiful out there you have to check that out. Also, we indulged in dinner at the American Hotel in Sag Harbor, Navy Beach, Nick and Toni's, and a concert at The Montauk Surf Lodge. Also, a fun excursion was wine tasting at Wolffer's. And antique shopping in East Hampton. There's just so much to do there!

We would definitely recommend this property to anyone. We are active people, and only scratched the surface of things to do in a week's time. If you are a more relaxed, sedate type, then perfect. This is the place for you as well.

The owners, Wendy and Peter, take great pride in this wonderful little cottage, and they really care about you enjoying yourself. That was excellent, that they were available anytime you might have needed them. Very nice people.

We were lucky to have one of the great summer weeks of all time, with sunshine and temps in the 70's. It felt like a summer from another era, it felt an like old time Hampton's summer, if that makes any sense... It was a vacation I'll never forget.

Perfect in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the cottage for 10 days at the end of August, and we enjoyed every minute of our time in this beautiful location. The house is "quant" without feeling small, with comfortable accomodations for a number of people. It is chock full of historic details, and is outfitted with everything imaginable that one would need or want for a beach vacation. The location is near perfect, just a short walk to the beautiful almost-private beach, and the secluded grounds have plenty of space for playing ball, bbqing or just swinging in the hammock (where one can see the bay and ocean and watch the stars at night). We spent hours walking, sitting and swimming at the beach, and the unique ability to walk back to the house during the day for lunch or to take a break is a big selling point vs. other houses that are located further (and driving distance) from the beach. The location on the Napeague Stretch also allows quick access to all that the area has to offer, with day trips to Montauk, Amagansett, Sag Harbor and other areas of the Hamptons within close reach. We would recommend this house to anyone seeking a "fully relaxing" but active vacation, away from the glitz and fast pace - the way the Hamptons used to be.

Lovely, charming and so comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Three of us stayed at this incredibly charming cottage after Labor Day and we were very happy that we did! There is so much of interest to look at inside the cottage -- so much character and history yet without sacrificing comfort or conveniences. Beds were very comfortable and a truly well stocked kitchen. It is a short walk through the dunes to the beach and, while the weather did not allow for much swimming, we were happy to hike the virtually private beaches every day.

Little Piece of Paradise

My family and I loved this little getaway. The house was clean, private, and an amazing location. The access to the private beach was priceless. We will rent it again!!!

Lovely old cottage near the beach.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to stay while attending a conference in Sag Harbor a close 30 minute drive. Friends came along and used the beach, shopped in the towns of Amangansett and East Hampton. The cottage is surrounded by nature and a short 5 minute walk to the Atlantic Ocean beach. The house was perfect for me and 4 of my friends, though it will sleep 6. I would recommend this quaint cottage to those who like a sense of history by staying in a 1932 Cottage with charm and character. The couple who own the cottage are easy to work with to rent this lovely place, and are willing to share recommendations on where to visit, shop, (even second hand stores), and where the locals hang out. I will recommend and do recommend you come and stay at this quaint home.
