About the property

Spacious Home, Lots to Do Without Going Far: Pool, Nearby Beach, Marina

This spacious modern 7 bedroom house has a working fireplace for the winter and gorgeous pool for the summer. It is a short walk to a sandy beach along Shinnecock Bay and a private marina. But with a backyard pool as beautiful as this, you might not want to leave!

Or just take a relaxing dip in the heated pool to refresh your body and mind. In the evening, gather around the fire pit for s’mores and laughter.

We have a fully equipped kitchen. You will find anything you need - dishes (including plastic ones for the pool area), silverware, pots, coffee maker, toaster, microwave. And of course, there is an outdoor grill.

The house comfortably sleeps 12 people. Also available is a pack and play. Downstairs there is a large kitchen with a dining table, a living room area, dining room, a bathroom and three bedrooms (one queen, one full bed and one with a twin trundle day bed with 2 mattresses). Upstairs there are 2 bathrooms and 4 bedrooms (one king, one queen, two with 2 twin beds).

The house is in a private community with a sandy beach and marina a 10 minute walk down a tree lined street from the house. There are also several bay and ocean beaches a short drive away.

East Quogue is a quaint town with lovely restaurants and a nearby farm stand with fresh local vegetables and flowers.

East Quogue is located right where Long Island splits into North and South Fork. There is easy access to the South fork and all the Hamptons or the more relaxed atmosphere of the North Fork with its wineries and farm stands. It is close to both ocean and bay beaches, as well as public golf courses, and lots of shopping.

We provide a detailed document with local activities.

There is easy access to all of the Hamptons. Westhampton, Southampton etc are an easy drive away, as are ocean beaches, parks, upscale and discount shopping, restaurants, farmers markets, etc.

Westhampton: 5 minutes

Riverhead: 15 minutes

Southampton: 20 minutes

East Hampton: 35 minutes

Sag Harbor: 45 minutes

Getting to the house is easy. The drive from NYC takes 90 minutes without traffic. The location is well before the typical Hampton's traffic snarl ups.

You can also take LIRR train or the Hampton Jitney bus from the city. The Hampton Jitney has a convenient airport transfer stop.

LIRR Westhampton stop is 15 minutes away, Hampton Bays stop is 10 minutes away and for the most frequent service Speonk is 20 minutes away.

The house is for relaxing get aways, sitting outside or in, going to the beach, enjoying the barbecue. Going to the North Fork wineries or heading to Southampton for shopping.

The house is not for rowdy guests, or parties etc. We have neighbors and are careful to always be respectful of them and ask that you do the same. No student post graduation or prom parties.

Pets are welcome as long as they are over 1 year old, quiet, housebroken and respectful of furniture.

About Sharon & Joop de Korte

We recently got married. One of the things we both love is meeting new people from around the world. We enjoy sharing our experiences (especially Joop) and hearing the stories of others to learn about new perspectives.

We have both traveled around the world both personally and professionally. We look forward to meeting people from places we have been to and those we wish to visit.

Joop grew up in Holland but moved to London and then France before settling in the US 20 years ago.

Sharon has a psychology and anthropology degree from the University of Pennsylvania and a Masters in Creative Studies from the State University of New York. Joop has a degree in life experience! He believes in having fun and interesting things will follow.

Sharon & Joop de Korte purchased this house in 2015

Why Sharon & Joop de Korte chose East Quogue

There are so many great things about this house. It is the perfect getaway to enjoy and explore the Hamptons. The inside is spacious with a great kitchen, living room, dining room and many bedrooms. And of course, we fell in love with the pool!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Upon arriving the neighborhood was quiet and well kept. The House itself was large as described and was very clean. We had 9 adults and everyone slept comfortably. Sharon & Joop were very hospitable from the time we booked right through until checkout making sure we had everything we need in order to make our stay pleasant. They were always reachable.

Excellent Place for Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Sharon and Joop were delightful to work with. Accommodating in every way, responsive to every inquiry, within minutes. The most time between me sending a question and getting a reply was literally, less than 2 hours.

The house was perfect for our family of 10 adults. Plenty of dishes, glasses, silverware, towels, even board games. All the furniture was comfortable and plenty of space for the family to spread out or all watch Sunday football in the great room.

The outdoor space is wonderful with the pool and all the decking and bbqs, it's a perfect spot. Close to Hamptons, Beaches. I would recommend these owners and house every time.

Exactly what we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

Very specious house with pool was big enough for six adults and five children from various areas of the country gathering for a larger family reunion in Quogue. We were very comfortable and the house was a nice "home base" to retreat to and rest up.

Wonderful for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

A perfect setting for our big family gathering--Sharon and Joop were great and everyone was happy--from our 1 year old grandson to my 81 year old dad. Highly recommended!

Perfect venue for our family gathering

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our group and was very true to the listing. We were able to share a wonderful time in this lovely home, where our family came together from all over the country to share memories of our dad and relax by the pool. The outdoor space was ideal and the number of bedrooms, which were nicely furnished, worked out extremely well. The owners were very helpful and were very accessible to answer any questions and address any concerns we had. Everyone had a great experience and was very pleased with our choice of a home. We would definitely go back again!

The Best Yet!

  • 5 of 5

My group of friends have rented a house each time we've had a function where we're all invited. It's easy, cost efficient and we have more room to enjoy hanging out verses being separated in a hotel. This by far was one of the best houses we've rented yet (many comments like this were made by throughout the group). We had 14 in our group and all fit so comfortably in the house. The house had everything we need to use for our short stay there. We had a great breakfast and grilled the rest of the time so it worked out well. The pool and patio furniture was great! We didn't even touch the pool table because it was so nice out! Sharon and Joop were very accommodating and explained everything that we may need to use. It was a great location for getting around the area as well. We'd all highly recommend this location for wedding groups, reunions and family stays! Thanks again for the great time! Hopefully we can do it again soon! :)
