Overview

About the property

5 Bdrms, 4.5 Baths, Family Home, Heated Swimming Pool, Har-Tru Tennis Court

Recent renters (a family of 4 from Sweden who stayed for a week) sent us this message after their stay: “Thank you so much for letting us rent your beautiful, charming house. We have had the best time! This week turned out exactly as we had hoped for--great weather, quality family time, exercise and the chance to feel like "locals" in the Hamptons. It's clear you have many wonderful memories in this house and now our family does as well!”

_______________________________________________________________

Our charming, well-maintained, south-of-the-highway (very important for avoiding summer traffic) Water Mill property is a five minute drive to uncrowded ocean beaches, near quaint Hamptons villages and great restaurants as well as art galleries, vineyards for wine tasting, fun professional polo, and world class shopping. Stylishly landscaped with lovely gardens, our property in summer features a heated in-ground pool and hot tub with (removable) child safety fencing, Har-Tru tennis court, large front lawn/playing field, and outdoor shower. Both In- and Off-season, the house is an inviting family-oriented space -- with games & books for children of all ages and 2 large flat-screen TVs.

Inside, the double-height living room, and dining area that seats 10, are flooded with light and surrounded by decks (one with BBQ), providing 3 additional outdoor eating areas served by a chef’s kitchen with top of the line appliances. The house is nicely organized for families, whether two generations or three, with a master suite on the second floor including its own luxurious bathroom with whirlpool tub, and four guest bedrooms and 3 bathrooms on the ground floor, together with an office, extra large game room with antique full-size pool table and large flat-screen TV. The house has 2-zone central air-conditioning, central sound system for music, Wi-Fi, and a washer/dryer.

We are long term seasonal residents of the Hamptons, know the area quite well and have spent many summer vacations and winter holidays here. We are happy to share our knowledge with our guests, such as scenic back roads for sightseeing and getting around when the traffic is heavy. For beach lovers and beach walkers, we are a short drive to some of the most glorious, white sand, ocean and pond-fed beaches in the world. For lazing around, we have the pool and hot tub, surrounded by chaises and umbrellas for shielding from the sun, and quiet spots both indoors and out for reading and relaxing, including a much-loved hammock under a spreading Maple tree. For more active pursuits, we offer a fabulous Har-Tru tennis court, a large open yard suitable for touch football, Frisbee, softball, croquet, boule, and a blacktopped basketball court. We can also advise on the best restaurants and casual lunch places, as well as nearby stables for those who like to ride.

Other families who have rented from us are unanimous as well in their enthusiasm for their Hamptons experience based in our home:

8 guests, two families of 4, from Scotland for a week -- “Thanks again for the use of your home over the last few days. It will be a great memory for both families…. House is great and really enjoying our stay.”

2 generations of a family, 5 guests for a week – “We just arrived back in Chicago and have great memories of a wonderful week at your home. Thanks for arranging everything to be perfect!.... Your home is wonderful and fits us well. Gary came by to give us a quick introduction. Very helpful. And thank you for the champagne -- a wonderful welcome!.... This property is a perfect house to hold a family reunion. There are many bedrooms with well located bathrooms; perfect for several families. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking wonderful meals. The outdoor deck off the kitchen is a great place to eat breakfast under the sun as well as lunch and dinners. The swimming pool heats up to a nice warm temperature; perfect for at the end of a beach day or to spend the day. The house is well maintained.”
