We spent a week here in July 2015 with our three boys - ages 8, 5 & 8 weeks. We live along the beach in Florida - so we weren't looking for a beach get-a-way - just a beautiful (& clean!) home to enjoy some much needed & stress-free family time. Our stay was perfection - relaxation for mommy & daddy with a new baby - and our big boys were happy to play in the pool all day. The pool deck, furniture, table and entire outdoor set-up made our stay SO enjoyable - and the quality portable speakers to hook your phone into was a REALLY nice additional touch. (Not to mention the well designed interior and super-comfy beds!)
The kitchen is VERY well stocked with everything and anything that you could need (and then some!), the grill works great, and the overall layout of the house worked beautifully for us with the 2 bedrooms upstairs for the kids. Having a third bathroom (2nd downstairs) was a nice touch to use as a pool bath coming in and out of the house.
We are already planning a return trip for Summer 2016. As a note to parents with babies or young children - the house already has A LOT of what you will need, and for anything else we found "Hamptons Baby Rental" to work out nicely (swing and baby bouncer seat for our infant).
One other tip - Wolffer Wine Stand is THE BEST. Parents can relax (with wine!) on the lawn (bring a blanket to sit) while your kids run around and play next to the vineyard. We love love LOVED it - be sure to check into when they are open in the evenings (sometimes with live music).
My group of friends had a lovely weekend in Rachel and Tom's home. It's a cozy contemporary space that was perfect for our group of 7. All the bedrooms were clean and comfortable, exactly as described. The pool and patio was the best part, great for grilling and hanging out during the day. Rachel was extremely helpful, well-organized and accommodating. Would love to stay again!
This well-maintained, three-bedroom home is recently updated and very comfortable. Off the beaten path, it is located in a quiet wooded location minutes from downtown East Hampton. The in-ground pool means you never have to leave the house if you're looking to cool off. Truly, this house is better than the description! The owner of this property was a delight to work with, and we instantly knew we could trust making this commitment. We absolutely will consider renting again.
After 12 days of intense traveling the East-Coast we urgently needed some relaxation.
Tom's and Rachel's retreat was the perfect place for this!
The house is very comfortable and cosy and fully equipped. It's situated in the midst of a wood, totally quiet. To the nearest beach it is a 20min walk or 2min drive.
Although a couple of beaches are within max. 30min drive there was no need to squeeze with hundreds of people in the hot sun without any shade. It was much better to hang around in the garden (sunbathing on the pool-deck or in the shade of the trees) and jump into the BIG, perfectly serviced pool.
Suggestion: Drive to the beach after 6 pm (when parking is free and enough lots are available), enjoy the evening sun, bring some ice-cold drinks and some fire-wood and light a beach-fire (which is allowed, if some safety-instructions are followed). Our favorite was the Two-Mile-Hollow-Beach in East-Hampton.
Rachel's care was incredible! We have rented dozens of vacation homes and flats during the last 20 years, but never before have I had to do with such a friendly and competent private landlord.
From closing the lease-contract, over pre-travel-service and assistance on site until settling the deposit: It was a real joy to work with Rachel.
I can recommend this retreat to everyone!
Thanks again, Rachel!
