About George Schelz

We are both New York natives and have grown up loving the ocean and its beaches. We retired here after living and working in New York, New Jersey, Detroit, New Orleans, the Hague (15 years) and Singapore (5 years).

This house is our year-round home.

George Schelz purchased this house in 2003

Why George Schelz chose Hamptons

This location is centrally located in the Hamptons, enabling one to get to Bridgehampton, Sag Harbor or Southampton in less than 15 minutes. East Hampton is 20 minutes away. Mostly by back roads avoiding the traffic snarl of Route 27. Beaches on the ocean and on Peconic Bay are 10 minutes away.

What makes this house unique

Although located in a quiet residential neighborhood, the property is very secluded with little sign of neighbors or traffic.

There is the option of having the ChildLock fence (see picture) installed (1/2 hour) around the pool to provide extra safety for families with small children. The pool is the largest standard size (20x40) with a propane heater attached.

There is a shaded patio area that provides relief even on the hottest days, and also serves as an excellent PingPong court (see picture).

And don't forget the hammock in the shade!

Beautiful house with pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay. The house is in a great location. Very peaceful and relaxing. Great house with lovely decor, garden, pool, table tennis table, and hammac! The owners were lovely and helpful. The children (12, 9 and 5) enjoyed borrowing their beach toys and kites. The house was really well equipped. I would definitely recommend it! Can't fault it. Our children didn't want to leave!

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my family of 5 at this charming house in Water Mill for three nights. The house was comfortable, clean, and the perfect size for us. The kitchen was great, as we cooked dinner there one night. The pool was a highlight for us, very serene and quiet with plenty of space to relax. We also made use of the hammock and ping pong table. George is extremely accommodating and was flexible with both check-in and check-out. We even left a book behind and he made sure to send it to our home address. We will definitely be back!

Family friendly sanctuary!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed here with our 3 week newborn and our nanny. Although, the house was large enough to invite at least two other couples!

We were greeted on arrival by the landlord, George, who was super friendly and helpful in showing us the house and all the amenities (table tennis, swimming pool, hammocks, gas range, bicycles, endless towels, fireplace for smores, stereo surround sound... the list can go on and on!). The house was well appointed and designed in an Asian, feng shui manner.

During our stay, George was attentive and immediately responded to questions during our visit (via email and text). We also had a visit from several cute white-tail deer in the back yard!

After we left, we asked George for other available weeks or weekends in the near future, because we'll definitely be back!!

Water Mill is a hamlet in the heart of the Hamptons, easily accessing the villages of Sag Harbor, East Hampton, Bridgehampton and Southampton by back roads.

While the ocean beaches (e.g. Flying Point, Mecox) are world famous, the Peconic Bay beach (Long Beach) in Sag Harbor is well-known locally as an attractive alternative with warmer waters and no waves.

There is a Jitney stop in Water Mill, and Southampton. Both are 5 minutes from the house.
