  • A glorious week

    "This warm, very comfortable home was everything we hoped for. As pretty as it's pictures, it was impeccably clean. The owner was extremely helpful and surpassed expectations when we had a problem after we left. As golfers , diners, shoppers and beachers , everything felt within easy reach. I would highly recommend this property to any friend or relative."

  • Heaven by the sea

    "Beautiful. Amazing. Totally relaxing. Perfect. Across the street to private access beach. The beach is uncrowded and lovely. Pool has hot tub area for starlit nights. Deck is comfortable and positioned perfectly for sunsets. I highly recommend this lovely house with full amenities. The breakfast/dining area has a view of the bay. Not sure about their pet or children preferences, but there is a pool so children would have to be supervised. I can't imagine it not being the perfect getaway for anyone."

  • Secluded Oasis!

    "Oh the simple pleasures of Sea Shell Cottage on Shelter Island. So many moments to enjoy... my highlights here.. your large, open back yard which lends itself to lazy afternoon naps...the simple, uncluttered cottage decor gives ample space to sleep, relax, read... Sunset Beach Restaurant and Shelter Island Marina made our hours happy...Wades Beach for shelling and sea glass hunts...but most of all, my personal favorite...your outside shower! Thank you, Gail and Elise, for being so helpful to us in the booking process. You made it easy to really vacate!"

  • Spring, Summer, or Fall?

    "My husband and I have stayed at this property 4 times in the last 3+ years: twice in the summer, and once each in the spring and fall. All are wonderful times to be there! Summer is great because the house is so close to the village that we walked there to get our morning "Starbucks", homemade donuts and newspaper. It's also a close walk to the beach so you're not fighting traffic in the busy summer months. From the outside the house looks like a typical New England home but once you open the front door you are struck by the spaciousness and utra-comfortable decor in every room. There are many large windows in each room so the house is always light and airy (you don't need AC most of the time). We chose the downstairs master bedroom as our "headquarters" and enjoyed the very roomy, beautifully decorated room. Great shower! I'm a cook so I enjoyed the fully equipped kitchen and then eating outside on the terrace. Then my husband would go chip golf balls in the huge backyard! The pool is lovely and we found we spent more time there than at the beach. There are lots of great restaurants in the area and we enjoyed The Meetinghouse in Amagansett, Claws on Wheels (for carry-out) and the many other casual and fine dining choices in the area. We also enjoyed exploring and drove to Montauk (eat at the Clam Bar!) and Shelter Island and the north side of the island. Lots to do and explore. We would highly recommend this property for its location and comfort-level. It was very clean and well-maintained with lovely furnishings. We hope to go back in the fall!"

If one has discerning tastes and the sense to plan ahead, they might be spending an incredible vacation in one of those much sought after Water Mill beach houses. Water Mill beach houses offer a feeling of privacy and elegance while also giving visitors a desire to explore the outdoors and really feel close to nature.

Water Mill Beach Offers an Historic Getaway

Water Mill originally garnered its name from the mill that was built for the early settlers, in order to grind grain. The area residents began to measure the distance to other towns by their proximity to the mill. Today one can enjoy a stay in one of the lovely Water Mill rental cottages and visit the still useable water and wind mills that are part of Water Mill's history.

And with the ocean so close, there is much water sports and activities to enjoy. Some of these include things such as: kayaking, boating, sailing, or water skiing, not to mention parasailing or surfing.

So, whether you are a water sportsman or just want to enjoy the beauty and quiet of the ocean, The Hamptons vacation rentals are waiting for you to enjoy all that you desire...and more!
