About the property

Your Waterfront Pied-A-Terre In The Hamptons

If you are looking for a quiet pied-a-terre in the Hamptons, then this modern waterfront 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom house will have what it takes. This is a cozy, home for up to 6 people with boating and kayaking right from your own dock in the backyard.

The location is ideal with its close proximity to beaches, the Hamptons best shopping and the closest and best accessibility to the urban areas of NYC. The house is an hour and a half away from midtown Manhattan in normal traffic and just a few minutes drive from a Hampton jitney bus stop and LIRR train. It is also the best vantage point from which to explore both the south fork dazzle and north fork charm with the fabulous outlet shopping of Riverhead in between.

Ocean beaches are an easy drive and bay beaches are even closer. You can walk to our private community's own bay beach. The community also includes a playground for little ones. We can provide whatever is necessary to accommodate your needs for children (pack & play, baby monitor, portable crib, etc.). We allow dogs at the house for a small additional fee.

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

We have a fully equipped kitchen with new appliances and of course, an outdoor grill. You will find anything you need.

Enjoy everything the Hamptons has to offer without Montauk Highway traffic.

Maximum of 2 cars at the house.

We do not rent to anyone under 30 years old.

No student post graduation or prom parties.

We have a 2 week minimum rental from July 4th to labor day

Why Sharon & Joop de Korte chose Hamptons

Sharon's parents have had a house 10 minutes from this property for the last 25 years. We fell in love with the area. It is the hidden gem of the Hamptons - closest to the city, near beaches, shopping, restaurants without the long drive and traffic.

We fell in love with the area because it is extremely peaceful and free of any noise pollution of urban living. We found this house as a project and have fully renovated it from top to bottom - nearly everything is new.

What makes this house unique

You can bring your boat or jet ski and moor it right at our dock in the backyard. Or you can use our kayaks to explore the bay or our bicycles to explore the surrounding area and ride to local farm stands.

A lovely weekend in the Hamptons!

My family came from the UK to visit and we stayed in the Hamptons to enjoy some winery visits and meet friends. We had a lovely time having BBQ's on the patio and being by the water :)

Dream Place with Privat dock for unforgettable moments

  • 5 of 5

We spent a beautiful time in this lovely Place. Joop picked us up at the Bus station and bring us back there after our stay. Only that was very lovely. But that's nothing compared to the house who is just beautiful in a very quiet place, It was like a dream, the only sound you'll hear even if you concentrates will be the cicadas.

After being at the Private beach where you'll probably be Alone with your family or friends you know that was the good choice. But when you are in this garden with the view on the docks and you have a Barbecue under the sun of East Quogue, you'll wish time stops forever.

Not like the overcrowded beaches or citys, this is the real place to have some rest or quiet holidays.

The host let us use his 2 bikes so we could go everywhere we wanted. You'll find a Market 5 minutes (15min by bike) from there by car.

I wish i could stay there forever, i will recommend this place to everybody i know because this is the real deal.

Once again thank's to Sharon and Joop to be very like that: Simple people wanting brought joy in the life of their guests.
