About James

I am a second generation builder/broker/appraiser that is very passionate about my work. Visitors enjoy talking about the various species of trees, schrubs and perenials surrounding the residence. My favorite part of the residence is the grand foyer entry area.

James purchased this estate in 2009

Why James chose Hampton Bays

Hampton Bays is a beautiful community with alot to offer the traveler or the local yokel. Its natural beauty abounds.

What makes this estate unique

Location, Privacy, Unique home, Owners who take a lot of pride and care about their visitors

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We stayed at no 12, Red Creek Circle, for 2 weeks this summer. We were all very happy there, both with the accommodation inside and with the exterior, i.e. The garden and the pool area.

It is just as described, a large, airy, well-equipped family home. We were a family of 5, but it would be just as suited to a few couples.

The gourmet kitchen is well-equipped, there is all manner of pots and pans.

The rooms are spacious and beautiful as per the pictures, and everything is very well appointed. Upstairs the bedrooms are lovely and large and the bathrooms as well, there is plenty of towels, and all is beautiful and spotless.

Outside, the garden is beautiful and there are loads of sunloungers, so a large group can sit together outside.

All in all, the house and the garden are both lovely, as are the owners, who are kind and friendly, and always willing to help."

Redcreek Circle

We really enjoyed our vacation the house and weather were both very good. It is the second time we have stayed there and our hosts really took good care and really tried hard. Only issue is that the TV in the master bedroom had been removed.

Gorgeous, Charming, immediately felt like home

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fabulous week staying here, we did not want to leave. We barbecued multiple times and even sat around the warm fire at night - we felt like we were miles away from anyone and yet just a jump in the car and you were at your favorite hamptons restaurants and beaches. The pool and backyard are relaxing and the gardening is gorgeous to look at. The house is extremely comfortable and served us and our 1 year old perfectly. We hope to come back again soon!

The Best Weekend of Summer 2014!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking to rent the house for the girls getaway party and was very cautious about renting something on homeaway after having a bad first experience (I received urgent notice from homeaway that property I was about to rent was believed to be fake), despite the excellent reviews below. I’m so happy Rowena and Dominic were so patient and responsive to make me feel comfortable so that I went through with the rental. Upon arrival, I probably missed half of the instructions when Rowena was showing us around the house – so overwhelmed with happiness and excitement I was! I felt like pictures don’t do justice to this place and it is even better in reality! We decided to stay in on Friday night and order delivery so that we can enjoy the house longer – and that’s girls getaway in in Hamptons – that says a lot!!! The pool is so amazing that we ended up not going to the beaches at all, either.

This immaculate house can be a perfect vacation spot for anyone:

• Girls getaway – it has an amazing swimming pool with a waterfall, sauna and tons of space to lounge;

• Guys getaway – it has several grills and a huge couch with TV (haha, at least that’s my idea of guys getaway, the only thing missing is a pool table);

• Romantic getaway – it has a beautiful master bedroom with memory foam mattress, several Jacuzzis, a steam shower and indoor and outdoor fireplaces;

• Family vacation – it has a huge play room for children to be entertained;

• Summer event space – it has gorgeous landscaping to have the guests wowed and a large deck to fit everyone!

Everything in this property is made with a great attention to detail and made with love! I couldn’t have been happier with the rental!

We all fell in love with the house and didn’t feel like leaving when the time came...

Now my colleagues have to bare with me bragging non-stop about my fabulous weekend and a gorgeous multi-million dollar house I stayed at!

P.S. Rowena, thank you for the watermelon – that was just what a doctor prescribed on a hot afternoon next to the pool!

Great house in a quiet location

  • 4 of 5

This is a huge, well appointed house, that has oodles of space. The bedrooms are particularly well furnished and the bathrooms are all modern with fantastic showers.

Great outside space too with a brilliant pool and lovely outside seating area. We enjoyed cooking outside on the BBQ most evenings.

The neighbourhood was incredibly quiet, which suited us down to the ground, and yet just a short drive away you had lots of bars and restaurants in Hampton Bays.

Detailed instructions from Sandra the house manager on every aspect of the house and great local knowledge which meant we found some beaches and places we'd never have known about without her!

Truly relaxing week spent at this house.

Dream House

  • 5 of 5

We live in upstate NY and have family that comes down to Hamptons every summer. I've rented other houses before but never will rent a different one again! The house was in a quiet location, was clean, neat, super organized! The playroom was a dream for my three young kids. Between the playroom and the amazing pool my kids had an amazing time. We only went to the beach once. ;). The house is perfectly situated close to beach and town. The AC was amazing considering how incredibly hot and humid it was while we were there. The rooms have amazing large bathrooms with great showers. I can't say enough how much this house had to do with us enjoying our vacation. We had fun cooking and grilling outside with friends. Fun nights playing cards while the kids swam in a pool with alternating rainbow lights!! It's a wonderful house and we're thankful the owners shared it with us and we will definitely be back!!
