Sean purchased this house in 2000
Known worldwide for it's stunning natural beauty and combination of fertile soil and seas as well as a climate tempered by both the Atlantic Ocean and Peconic Bay, the East End of Long Island is quite simply a natural paradise. The spectacular natural light that graces these shores has been bringing painters and artists here since the 19th century. The pristine white-sand beaches that were once celebrated have been one of the great cultural equalizers from the Gatsby era Wiborgs and their guests, who were the actual basis for many of F. Scott Fitzgerald's characters,
One of the greatest benefits I get when staying at this property in East Hampton is just seeing my neighbors and visitors a during my frequent walks to town which is only a few hundred yards away. I love visiting the volunteers who staff LVIS (The Ladies Village Improvement Society) and finding bargains.
Why we love it:
Hands down the best location we could ask for. We wanted relaxation as we live in Hong Kong we wanted peace and quiet. But we also don't want something so secluded that going to restaurants, shops and some city life necessities (yoga class or spa treatment) end up being a chore. This house is so close to the best restaurants Hamptons has to offer - Babette's, Nichol's Serafina, Nick and Toni's among the too many of them to mention. I sweat we never had a bad meal. When I mean close, it is close because we walked to almost all of them (except Nichol's which was a 3 minute drive)
The main street beach was really close, a 10-15 minute bike ride. The shopping was topnotch as you get a selection of a well curated retailers which are again a 5 minute walk from Sean's house.
2. CLEAN, WELL-EQUIPPED AND COMFY EVERYWHERE
Sean's house was made and decorated for someone to be living in there. Not the type that's all polished, stainless steel and concrete. The most important for us is that it's clean and functional and we got it. This house doesn't aim to give hotel standards, or make you feel like you're in a serviced apartment. And that's what we love about it. As soon as you walk in, you will feel the warmth of the place, a house with a character that you can almost believe that it's your own after a few days. That's how comfortable it felt for us to be staying there.
And this house has everything you need. Bread maker? Check. Bicycles of various sizes? Check. Condiments of all sorts, everything really. We had more than what we need. The pool was ace. The dinning area was our favorite with lots of sunshine in the morning.
3. THE HOST
Sean was the most accommodating and attentive host ever. Beats every concierge I've met! And we've travelled all over the world in top cities from London, Tokyo, Milan etc. He will list everything from food, farm fresh eggs, train schedules even booked us a spot on the jitney just in case we decide to take it back to the city.
I could go on and on about this place. This has got to be one of my favorite holidays ever!
Thanks for accommodating us on short notice.
The location was just perfect for us and all of your suggestions were appreciated.
My cousin Laura, who lives in New York rented this place last year while we were visiting from Germany. It was one of the highlights of our visit so this year we timed our visit to be able to come back. It ended up being a really hot week so we were so glad to have been out of the city for that time. The house stayed nice and cool but mostly we couldn't stay out of the pool. So refreshing.
There was some kind of fancy outdoor smoker that Laura had learned how to use since last year. We tried smoking meats and fish and had a nice supply of delicious local fresh food and breads which I still relish months later. I hope our visits to the U.S. keep lining up with the house rental here.
My friends and I booked a girls weekend here in June and had an amazing trip! Everything is walking distance - town, beach, etc. Great pool and amenities at the house itself. Had such a great time that we're trying to book another summer weekend here!
I celebrated my 40th birthday at this beautiful house with my family and a few close friends. The house was charming and comfortable and we all had a really great time. Sean's food suggestions were right-on and we had some great meals. I look forward to returning in the future.
My wife and I spent a week at Sean's house in East Hampton in September 2015, it was one of the best weeks of our lives. We had our siblings come out to visit throughout the week and had ample space in the house. It is a quiet oasis, that was so relaxing for us all. Sean was such a great host, and so accommodating to all of our questions before and throughout our trip. We look forward to renting again next year!
