Why James VanMilder chose Hamptons

This house is located on a cul de sac on 1 acre of land and is wooded and private. The garden is manicured and you get the feel that you are in a cozy country family home, not a lifeless house that some of the other homes in the Hamptons may feel like. The master bedroom is upstairs and the other 5 bedrooms are down stairs. The living room and kitchen are on the second floor, giving the sense that you are in a treehouse. The separate poolhouse is great for entertaining (pool table and wet bar) or for overflow guests as there is a comfy brand new pullout couch and a separate bedroom sleeping area with a twin bed. The pool area is beautiful.

What makes this house unique

The tree top views, the distant view of peconic bay, the wrap around deck upstairs, the pool area and the privacy.

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were three families with teenage children looking to get away for a long weekend and this house was perfect! From the moment we started inquiring about the house, James was very responsive, easy to work with and extremely accommodating. The pool and pool house were great and we spent a lot of our time just relaxing in the back. There are so many places to sit and relax. The beautiful deck off the family room even has an retractable awning so you can get some relief from the sun. The new kitchen and master bedroom are absolutely beautiful while still being comfy and cozy. The house was exactly what we were looking for and we will definitely come back again.

Work / Play House

  • 5 of 5

James was a wonderful host for our large group that needed somewhere to crash after long working days this summer. The house was very comfortable and relaxing! With plenty of room for everyone to hang out. James was super responsive and patient while helping us coordinate our large group. 100% recommend!

Fantastic spot for groups!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 15 stayed at James' property this past weekend and it was fantastic! James was extremely easy to work with throughout the process, and made sure to answer any questions we had. The house itself was tidy and well maintained. There were many bedrooms and comfortable couches for our guests to spread out on. We especially loved the giant pool and pool house annex. The location is also fantastic - it only took us a few minutes to get to the nearby towns and beaches. We spent a long time comparing different houses in the area, and are so happy we decided on this one. If you're looking for a place for this size group or smaller, I highly recommend this spot!

Great house for a weekend in the Hamptons

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a bachelorette party weekend and it was perfect! James did a great job explaining how everything worked in the house, and was super responsive and communicative in response to any questions we had. We made great use of the pool all weekend, used the grill one of the nights, and loved the kitchen. The house slept 11 girls comfortably, with plenty of bathrooms. I'd recommend this house to anyone!

Relaxing Retreat, great location

  • 5 of 5

I chose this getaway to sneak away from the everyday stress of the city life. I knew that my family wanted a nice place to get everyone together under one roof and just relax and spend time with each other. I found this house and emailed the owner and once i got in contact i knew this was going to be a very simple engagement to arrange. James made it an easy process and he answered any questions i had about the house. The inside was beautiful with a very modern theme and it was very spacious. My sister and I utilized the kitchen to cook amazing meals for the family. we stayed out on the deck and had a couple of drinks and enjoyed the peace and quiet. The entire situation worked out perfect and my family was able to spend some quality time together. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a place to get a group together in the Hamptons.
