About the property

4 BR, 2 full baths, heated pool, tennis courts,central AC, 50' plasma, sleeps 8

Recently updated, serene and quiet rental in East Hampton Village. You will not find a more convenient location! You can walk to the train, jitney, and downtown. Your wonderful vacation rental is less than 2 miles from East Hampton Main Beach and Egypt Beach! You can bike to most beautiful beaches in the world in less than 5 minutes! You can play tennis, then jump into the heated pool for a quick swim.

This wonderful place has central air conditioning, a fireplace, wireless internet, 50' plasma TV in living room, large LCD TVs in other bedrooms, 2 tennis courts, heated pool, washer and dryer, everything you need!

There is a small room downstairs that has a mattress and bedding. You can use it for an impromptu guest, or, stand up the mattress and use the area for storage (bikes, water skis, fishing rods, beach chairs, coolers, etc).

Compare Prices carefully. My rental does not have additional charges for landscaping, pool maintenance, garbage pickup, cleaning surcharge, etc

Please note! This is a VERY quiet community of responsible adults. People come here to relax, have privacy, and get away from the world, while still be walking distance to the village and less than 2 miles from the beach.

If your intention is a house filled with people and loud parties, this is NOT the place for you.

Without exception, everyone who has stayed here LOVES the location, convenience, and peace. You will not find a more convenient location.

Why Ed chose Village of East Hampton

For many years, I looked for the ideal place in the Hamptons. I wanted to be close to the beach and town. This meant being in the Village of East Hampton, as anywhere else meant a long drive in traffic. I was thrilled when this property became available. Its everywhere I could have wanted! Having tennis courts and a heated pool were an added plus. I love the fireplace, the open airy feel, and all the small touches that make it my refuge in paradise. Everyone who's stayed here has fallen in love with it!

What makes this house unique

The Hamptons can be the scene of crazy parties, which is NOT what I want. I value peace and quiet, solitude, and serenity. Most of the time my entire neighborhood is deserted, as most people are vacation home owners like myself. Being able to get away to my place and enjoy the idyllic setting has been SO wonderful over the years.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was fortunate enough to be Ed's guest for a weekend in January. It was warm for January, so we walked downtown and did some shopping, saw a movie, had dinner, and walked home. It was so nice not needing a car! We even took one of the bikes for a ride to the beach and were there in 5 minutes. It was so quiet and peaceful here I hope I get invited back soon!

Excellent home to use for exploring the Hamptons

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to the Hamptons and we were there in September 2016. The home at 51 Gingerbread Lane was ideal for our purposes of exploring and enjoying all that the Hamptons have to offer. The home itself lived up to the description given on the web. It was clean and had everything we needed to relax and even have a BBQ on the patio. The location could not have been better. First of all East Hampton is in the middle of the Hamptons so it is only a short drive to surrounding towns making it very easy to explore. It was also very close to beautiful beaches and is located close enough to the center of East Hampton that we could easily walk. This home has the advantage of being in a very quite residential area. There are other homes close by but all homes share a large well landscaped common area giving the feeling of individual isolation. After a day on the go we could relax on the patio with a large garden that felt like it was your private garden. There is a very nice pool shared by the other homes. The pool is large, well maintained,. and the landscaping keeps it private from surrounding homes. There is ample pool furniture of excellent quality. We used the pool almost everyday after a busy day of seeing the Hamptons. If you like tennis there are tennis courts next to the pool. We would definitely stay at this home again if we return to the Hamptons and we would recommend it to friends. The owner was very helpful, providing us tips and advice on how best to enjoy the Hamptons. Very easy to work with.

Great rental in East Hampton Village

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely townhouse very close to all East Hampton village has to offer. Its in a townhouse complex so you feel very safe all the time and all the amenities are very well maintained and convenient. We usually drove to Main Beach, our favorite, but the house is close enough that you can simply drop people off, drive back and then bike back. That saves you pricey parking fee at beach. The owner is really lovely and tries his best to make your stay a good one. The house is well decorated, stocked with pretty much everything you would need, and feels like home. Highly recommend for the ideal combination of value, convenience and comfort.

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible trip! Never having visited the Hamptons I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but my stay was fantastic! This house is in the ideal location. Near the heart of East Hampton, it is minutes from the beach and also minutes from the train station (if you're inclined to travel that way). The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet and the pool and tennis courts are pristine. With three levels, there are plenty of bedrooms and also plenty of privacy if you have a few people with you. The house was very clean and I was thrilled to find that the pictures online actually matched what we found when we arrived! Another bonus is how friendly all the locals are. My boyfriend and I stayed in the off season and loved the property so much we're heading back in June.

Wonderful EH village getaway

Perfect summer stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here! The location is ideal - quick walk to town and the train, groceries, restaurants, bars etc., and there are also a few markets (delicious seafood, organic produce, italian deli, liquor store) and a bank which are even closer (probably a 5 minute walk). Very easy access to the beaches as well. The neighborhood is quiet, and makes for a relaxing, restful place to come home to. The house is clean, with a spacious living room / kitchen and has everything you could possibly need in terms of appliances, tv, wifi etc. Bedrooms are comfortable and all have plenty of closet space and tvs (we didn't need these with the beach so close but was good to have just in case!). Could not have been happier with this find. Thanks again, Ed!

The best beaches in the world are a bike ride away. There is golf, wine tastings at the nearby wineries, boating, fishing, incredible sunsets, museums, a movie theater in town,fireworks on the beach, world class shopping, antique shops, and the Tanger Outlets 45 minutes away.

Without exception, all friends that visited fell in love with my place and the area. They didn't want to leave! After a long week at work, I feel my stress lifting as I open the door to my sanctuary from the world.

This is a special place, in a VERY quiet community. If your intention is a house full of people and loud parties, please don't inquire.

Other Activities: 2 tennis courts and huge heated pool!
