Location, location, location !!
The house is down a long private driveway leading to a beautiful spot near the top of Tiana Bay. There is water on 3 sides of the house and There are expansive views of Tiana Bay and Shinnecock Bay behind that.
The waterfront exposure is to the south, and so you have the sun in your backyard all day. Plenty of opportunity to sunbathe, swim, go boating, or simply avoid all that, by relaxing in the shade that the awnings and parasols bring you in the gentle breezes that prevail there.
Bring your boat, jet ski, or kayak. You may launch them from your own boat ramp and attach them to the floating dock. Or you can use our kayaks or dingys to enjoy the area from the water or our bikes to explore the neighborhood.
Too much like work? The heated in-ground pool will be a good place to relax.
Each spacious bedroom overlooks the waters of Tiana Bay, and has its own private bath and lots of closet space.
Most of the furniture in the house is hand made and beautifully crafted, in a style that goes very well with this beach vacation area.
We have a fully equipped kitchen with new appliances and of course, an outdoor grill. You will find anything you need.
With such a beautiful location, it is incredible that it is just a few minutes walking distance to shopping and restaurants. LIRR trains and the Hampton Jitney stop as well as easy access to highways
Enjoy everything the Hamptons has to offer without Montauk Highway traffic.
The house is for relaxing get aways, sitting outside or in, going to the beach, enjoying the barbecue. Going to the North Fork wineries or heading to Southampton for shopping.
The house is not for rowdy guests, or parties etc. We have neighbors and are careful to always be respectful of them and ask that you do the same. No student post graduation or prom parties.
Pets are welcome as long as they are over 1 year old, quiet, housebroken and respectful of furniture.

Why Sharon & Joop de Korte chose Hampton Bays
Sharon's parents have had a house 10 minutes from this property for the last 25 years. We fell in love with the area. It is the hidden gem of the Hamptons - closest to the city, near beaches, shopping, restaurants without the long drive and traffic. When we saw this property we instantly fell in love with it. It is right on the water and the pool is beautiful. The swans nest in front of the house is an extra special benefit. Nearly all of the furniture has been hand made as a gift from the craftsman. It is perfect for the summer cottage feel of this incredible property.
What makes this House unique
The ability to swim, fish and boat right at the house. There is no reason to leave the property. While you are there, it feels far away and yet, most everything is walking distance or a very short drive.

Great vacation experience
This was the second year I rented during Labor Day out east and I have to say this house is in the perfect location for the perfect Hampton getaway! The pool is right on the water and gets sun all day long so you can lay out, swim and BBQ all day! The sun also keeps the pool at a great temperature so it’s not freezing! There were Kayaks we were allowed to use at our leisure and go around the bay! The best part was the owners were extremely accommodating and easy to work with and communicate with! They remained flexible throughout the trip and when there was a threat of a hurricane and flooding they told us if the tide started getting high to call them and we could use another one of their rental properties that was empty! Nothing ended up happening thank goodness because we could not have been more pleased with the location! Close to the town but also far enough away that it’s not crazy and is actually relaxing! We rented in west Hampton last year, which was nice but there is really only one restaurant to go to! There is definitely a lot more “happening” spots in Hampton bays so needless to say we will be looking to rent in this location again!
Thanks Sharon and Joop for being the best hosts I have ever come across!
My family and I spent a wonderful week in Sharon and Joop's home, with the majority of time spent in the very large heated pool or taking one of their boats for a ride. Excursions to the beach and the local aquarium are very close and easy to get to. The house has every amenity you would need, including linens and plenty of towels. Although there was a glitch with the A/C, they were immediately reactive and had it fixed within the same day. Lay out of the house is perfect for multiple families as each bedroom is in fact a 'suite' with full bathroom and plenty of space to spread out.
Wow Factor Blues
We were a family of 12 here for the weekend for a family Wedding, I had done a lot of research because we had ages ranging from 84-25 and we needed to be relatively close to the Venue, when I found Swan Point I was thrilled, it hit all the marks and the pictures of the grounds looked perfect for our group. On arrival we were very surprised by the front of the house, it was cluttered all around with just "stuff" some useable some just broken, unusable "stuff". The house inside very much resembles the listing on VRBO, bedrooms are spacious all with bathrooms and plenty of clean linens, closet/drawer space, however that is where it ended. As I walked outside I was very disappointed to see the construction going on, where beautiful grass and pavers once was ( as per the photos on VRBO ) was now covered in construction gravel, rocks and dirt, the pool was filled with dirt and the grass was weeds. Next door a completely brand new home was being built so we were welcomed with the sound of blade saws, tile cutters and loud music. I think had the homeowners had the courtesy to let us know these situations I would have been better prepared for the huge let down. The evening before the Wedding we had some other family members visit, my 79 yr. old uncle's chair broke and then an hour later another family members chair snapped ( they were the chairs in the photos that surround the outdoor table ) When my husband and I called Joop to tell him about the chair he asked was my uncle ok and then proceeded to ask "was he standing on the chair" ?!?! WHAT !!! Finally on Saturday the pool guy arrived to clean the pool, the plumber came to temporarily fix our shower. By Saturday we decided to make the best of everything, we thought a kayak cruise would be great ..NOPE, broken and only one paddle, my husband had to climb over things in the garage to find anything ( bikes, kayak, paddles, additional chairs, floats ) nothing useable the Flamingo Float...we tried to blow it up, the body was torn but the Head blew up !
All in all we were all together and had a great time at the wedding, once the pool was cleaned we enjoyed it
I may sound critical, but we have a Beach Condo on VRBO for the Jersey Shore and I know the preparation I go through to make things very very nice for renters and I feel that did not happen here -
We had a great time at Swan Point!
The house is very spacious. We had great family time. The pool was great and very comfortable. The view is excellent!! Thank you Sharon and Joop!!
An Amazing Gem In The Heart Of The Hamptons!
Wow! This was an amazing experience! You cannot go wrong renting this property! The property is spacious, clean, and looks professionally decorated for what we felt was a bargain. As an added bonus, there are private pool, boats, a lake filled with swans and other equipment we could use at no charge. Additionally, the owners were attentive, caring and helpful! You cannot go wrong renting this house!
The Neighborhood Hampton Bays is the closest of the Hamptons which makes it the easiest to get to - less than 2 hours from Manhattan and it has all that the Hamptons has to offer - peacefulness, quiet, shopping, beaches, beautiful sunsets and sunrises Getting around The location is perfect ! We are walking distance to the Hampton Jitney and the LIRR Hampton Bay's stop or a very short taxi. If we are available we will pick you up. If you are driving to the house, it is very close to Sunrise Highway and just a few miles from exit 71 on the LIE. We have lots of parking right at the house. Once you are at the house, it is walking distance to the Stop and Shop supermarket, stores and restaurants. And a short bike ride into town. But with the pool and the bay right at those, there might be no reason to leave! Hampton Bay's village is about 5 minutes away. Southampton and Westhampton are about a 15 minute drive.
