The private picket-fence enclosed 65 x 220 foot property is a flag lot, surrounded by bushes and trees and accessed by a 100+ foot long driveway. Perfect for kids and dogs and a nice game of croquette. Pick fresh Hydrangeas for your table or breakfast in bed.

I have so many good things to say about our experience staying at the cottage, I'm not sure where to start.
First, Melinda is incredibly gracious and thoughtful. Even before we arrived, she gave me several suggestions for local bakeries where I could get my husband's birthday cake made. Knowing we had two kids, she left the inner tubes and noodles out by the side of the pool. It's not just pool toys that Melinda made available to us - the cottage is well supplied with every kitchen item you could want, lawn games, and lots of beach towels (plus a beach umbrella for trips to the nearby beaches ... which brings me to my second point).
The cottage is really perfectly situated. It is within minutes from town (markets, pharmacy, Hampton Jitney and LIRR station) and a 10-minute drive to the wonderful Ponquogue and Tiana beaches. We even brought our bikes and biked over the bridge to the beaches, though I would not suggest this for younger kids.
Finally, the cottage, pool and lovely landscaping are so charming and comfortable. It was a pleasure spending time there and we hope to be able to spend more time there in future years!
My husband, daughter and I stayed at the cottage for a week in August and my 2 yr old daughter was in the pool all day every day! The pool temp was perfect! The cottage was very comfortable - room for 6-7 adults easily between the four bedrooms- and beautifully decorated. Loved hanging out in the back around the pool or grilling on the front porch which was surrounded by a lovely fenced-in lawn. Hydrangea bloomed all over the property! The location is off of another driveway in a subdivision, very close to the train station, which is great if you're having a few short-stay visitors. Local beaches and restaurants were nice. Good launching spot to towns farther east if you want to take some day trips. The host went above and beyond to make sure that we had no issues with our stay. The rental was seamless. Our deposit was returned very promptly with a lovely thank you note. Would love to stay again!
We had such a wonderful stay! The cottage was charming and lovely (and totally well stocked!), the pool gorgeous. It was very kid friendly and the nearby beaches were great. Melinda was a wonderful, caring host and promptly sorted the one (very minor) issue we had. Although the area is more local / less Hampton-ish, everything was a short drive and it's much faster to get to than East Hampton etc.
I would strongly recommend this property and we will for sure be back this summer.
I rented this adorable cottage style house for a week in June with my family and another family. We were four adults and three children under age 6. The space was perfect. It was just big enough for everyone to have their own beds, but small enough to feel connected and cozy. The best part of the week was the yard and deck. The yard is flat, pretty big and fantastically fenced in. The kids could run in and out of the house without us worrying about them getting in to the pool or street. Another bonus is the big outdoor shower (with hot water). It definitely came in handy since the house only has one bathroom. The pool is gorgeous (only downside was that it isn't heated and in June it was still very cold, even for the kids). The location is very convenient. We easily got to the beach, restaurants, grocery stores and shops. The owner, Mel, was so helpful and available. She was very communicative and came by right away to fix anything we needed. We will definitely be back!
We stayed there in July 2014 with family (and kids). The 4 bedroom house was a good size. Though it has only one bathroom, there is an outdoor shower that is really cool. And the pool is amazing...makes it worthwhile.
My husband, baby and I stayed at the cottage for a week with another couple and their baby ...and two dogs!!! We can't say enough good things about it. The house is gorgeous! Beautifully decorated and very homey. The owner was very kind and considerate and made sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The house was fully stocked with all you could possible need. The pool and yard area are lovely and private and very spacious. Hampton Bays town is such a short trip from NYC. You don't have to deal with the awful traffic that you get when traveling to the other Hamptons. We LOVED this house and definitely want to go back!!!!!!!
Hampton Bays Hamlet, Shinnecock Bay, Marinas and Ocean Beaches. You'll find the best fish and seafood in the Hamptons at Cor-J and the best prepared Italian takeout at Scotto's. Cocktails overlooking the bay at Oaklands or Sundays out on Dune Road, just over the Ponquogue Bridge. Go clamming at low tide or hire a boat for an amazing day of fishing. The best outlet stores are just 12 easy miles away in Riverhead. But the best part is you'll be relaxing at your pool while everyone else heading further into The Hamptons is stuck in traffic.
