A great two week break

5 of 5
My family and I have just returned to the UK after a great stay at this fantastic Southampton House. The property was as described, and Peter was very helpful and responsive both during the booking process and while we were at the house. The house is ideal for a large group (we were only four but there is more than enough space for 12), the games room, the pool and the wide selection of places to sit outside were clear winners for us. The most popular place for eating was sitting on the balcony with a lovely view of the bay and right next to the great BBQ - many perfect evenings. We spent time on the local beaches, exploring Southampton, East Hampton and Montauk as well as trips to the wineries on the North fork. We also rented a boat for the day from Hampton Bays to explore from the water - great fun! The best restaurant we found (when I could be dragged away from the BBQ) was CowFish only a few mins drive away. If you want a water view, with plenty to keep you occupied, in a spacious well maintained house - then this is the place. Thank you Peter!
