When we arrived, the pool was not filled to a usable level, and the water that was filled appeared unclean. Filling and cleaning the pool took the entire duration of our stay, and we were therefore unable to use the pool at all. While the owner was in touch with us on the issue, we did not feel that she demonstrated any level of urgency and did not seem on top of the upkeep of the pool. As a result, we left highly unsatisfied with our stay.
We have never had a less than five star review and pride ourselves in not only providing a fantastic property and stay for our guests, but in going out of our way to ensure every little detail is attended to. This rental was a quick weekend stay. On Friday the pool filter sprung a leak. Once notified (we immediately had an emergency tech at the house in less than 1 hour and the repair completed in less than 2 hours. The pool water level had gone down 2 feet because of the broken pipe yet nothing compromised the integrity or ability to swim or use the pool – this was the renters choice not to use the pool despite both the Pool Company and my reassurance that nothing affected the quality of the water. The only issue was a lower than normal water level. Refilling a pool water level requires a little time as it is done with a garden hose supplying filtered and treated water into the pool. What is not mentioned by this renter is that we had also offered a week BEFORE check in a gratis 4 HOUR earlier check in so they could add time to their short weekend stay. And while beyond our control, because of the pool water level issue we also offered a free ($1500 value) add on 24 hour stay at the property. To state that I did not display any sense of urgency in this matter is just not true I was out of the country on a different tie zone in the middle of night handling quickly and efficiently this issue. I could not have handled any other way to satisfy this renter.
Paradise Vacation In the Hamptons
Our stay at this very private and lovely property was one my family and I will always remember. The kids loved the beautiful pool and my husband and I enjoyed the fact that it was large enough that we could do laps and then go right into the amazing hot tub that seats 7. The whole family could actually hot-tub it together. We had such a good time. The kids would play in the morning and we would then walk over to the beach in the afternoons and lap up the sun, sand and water. It was great that the house was so close to the beach.
The house itself was beautifully appointed. The large deck spanned the entire width of the house and was equipped with an attractive settee and tables for entertaining. The grill is propane-enabled so no worries about lighting it— you just turn it on. I loved that. My husband is a great griller but sometimes he's not the handiest. The kitchen is modern, gorgeous and completely green. One feature I loved was the built-in Meile coffee maker, you just press a button and presto a fab cup of joe was ready for you.
The contemporary home has floor to ceiling windows allowing for amazing sunlight to fill the house. And the three bedrooms were roomy and comfortable—the beds were super and the master with en suite was separated on one end of the house from the other bedrooms. The den or family room was perfect for getting away to read or for watching the two large flat screen televisions. There was WIFI throughout the house so the kids could stay happy playing their games and being connected - but truthfully I have never seen them so disconnected from their electronics and loving the environment and fun we had together (plenty of board games provided by the owner as well)
The owner also left easy-to-follow instructions to the home so nothing was a mystery. We enjoyed all the amenities of a luxury hotel without any of the hassle or costs. We so enjoyed the tranquil days and nights of our secret getaway.
My family and I found this awesome vacation one to remember. We plan to go back this year.
I recommend it to anyone who wants the perfect retreat.
Thank you for your lovely review of our East Hampton home Sacred Harbor. We are so happy the entire family enjoyed their vacation time. You were great guests as well and always welcome back!
Checked every box, and more!
We really got lucky booking this spectacular home in East Hampton! A great centrally located property with all the bells & whistles! The photos did not adequately show the impeccable care and attention to detail the owner provides with this rental. Whatever we needed, from recommendations to great area restaurants, local spa and massage services, bike rentals, she was there to provide a solution. When we entertained at home we had every imaginable accouterment to prepare and serve properly. When we wanted a day at the beach we had chairs, umbrellas, blankets and towels, even coolers to keep our lunch and cocktails just right. The hot water outdoor shower and hot tub right off one of the Master suites was spectacular and where we spend many evenings unwinding. And the location in the stunning NW Woods with walks to the local beach, sunsets beyond our imagination and easy access to all of the Hamptons hamlets allowed us to easily come and go and avoid the summer crowds and traffic. Hard to leave the house itself with its tranquil, serene, comfortable vibe - and when we head back to the Hamptons we will definitely book this property again. We would recommend to anyone looking for a comfortable and special vacation retreat.

It was lovely having your family and you stay at our home. It was clear you loved the house like your own since you took such impeccable care during your stay. Thanks for the pool toys and floats you left!!! Please let us know next time you are planning to rent in East Hampton - love to accommodate you again!
Location, layout, amenities - perfect!
Sacred Harbor was the perfect backdrop for our Hampton Vacation! This is the kind of place where you take a deep breath - say "AAhhhhhhhh" -and feel instantly like you are on a retreat at a resort property. We loved the contemporary decor and the whole house had such a welcoming appeal. It was great to have so many places to stretch out and carve both personal and family time. And the outdoor multi-level decks with separate areas for both sun and shade, conversation and cocktails was perfect for entertaining and lounging! The close proximity to hiking trails, Sammy's Beach with only 5 minutes into East Hampton was fantastic. Bountiful restaurants, theaters, splendiferous salt caves and fun-filled Farmer's Markets are all within a moment's reach! The owner, Carol, was super helpful and most accommodating. I would absolutely recommend this wonderful house for a memorable vacation!
