Guestbook comments from the owner
My husband and I rented the O'Connell cottage (which is more like a house), for the month of August 2013. Shinnecock Hills in Hampton Bays is truly the perfect family place for a family vacation. The location was ideal for our family, as we have 7 year old twins, who loved being steps away from the beach. The house was clean and airy, with an amazing upper deck view of the water, perfect for enjoying the famous sunsets of Peconic Bay. I can't say enough about how accommodating the owners were. They made sure we were comfortable, and gave great recommendations to local restaurants. One of the best beaches for children because the bay water is clean, calm, and best of all warm! Oakhurst beach is a very private area with minimal public access, almost exclusively residential. We highly recommend staying here, you won't be disappointed.
My name is Douglas O'Connell and I own and manage the property along with my brother John. The house, 'O'Connell's Cottage' was purchased in 1950 by our Grandfather, John O'Connell and his wife Martha. Our family has been enjoying the wonderful house, beach, and surrounding community of beach loving families for over 50 years. We love the area and community and want to make sure that everyone that stays in our house has a wonderful experience.
If you are looking to enjoy a truly fantastic beach getaway, look no further, because this location has everything a family could want when it comes to a beach vacation. The house itself was built in 1950 and a second story addition was added in the 80's. It has recently been updated in order to create a true beachy relaxed experience, yet it still retains many of the charms of an older home. The house boasts three berooms, one of which is a luxurious queen suite with a family area and a deck where you can enjoy breathtaking, unobstructed views of Peconic Bay. Within 100 steps you are on a lovely private beach with calm Bay waters where you can relax while your children enjoy a safe swimming environment. In addition, the rental comes with a boat mooring, so if you are a boater or jet skier, look no further. If you get tired of beach living you are only a short drive to great restaurants, charter fishing, night life, and world class shopping in Southampton, Easthampton, Westhampton, or perhaps a nice day trip to 'The End' of Long Island, Montauk Point. Whatever it is you are looking for in a beach getaway, you will be able to find it right here. Come, Enjoy!
This location is perfectly suited for a family that wants to get away and enjoy some quality time together in a family oriented beach setting. It offers a quiet, relaxed atmosphere with calm safe waters for the children to enjoy, so that parents can relax and unwind. In addition, the property has its own mooring, which makes it a boaters paradise. Bring your boat or jet ski and dock it right in front of your beach house, Perfect! In addition, you are located in the middle of the Hamptons, in close proximity to fabulous dining, exciting night life, and wonderful ocean beaches just to name a few of the enticing attractions.
