Why Cecilia and John Ford chose Village of East Hampton

It's very close to the village, the beach, and is spacious and cheerful.

You can walk there from the village, jitney, train station, etc.

We like being able to go back and forth to the beach for short trips: for a brief walk, a quick swim, another walk at sunset, or an afternoon of fishing.

What makes this house unique

Tastefully furnished and decorated with many one of a kind country antiques.

Proximity to all the many benefits of East Hampton village, which is uniquely beautiful and interesting.

Walking/biking distance to the ocean beach.

5 Individual bathrooms, plus outdoor shower.

Exceptional flower garden.

Birthday Celebration Success Story

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Cecilia and John's East Hampton for the weekend of my 25th birthday and it was an AMAZING stay! My closest girlfriends friends and I found comfort in our weekend home in the Hamptons. From the oversized kitchen to the outstanding backyard, my friends and I couldn't be happier with staying at this home. At the center of East Hampton, this house is a (less than) five minute car ride from everything including beaches, delicious restaurants, Stephen Talkhouse, shopping, CVS, etc. You couldn't find a better location if you tried! The eclectic art and different pieces of furniture throughout the house made it feel so homey, hardly like we were away from our own homes. With different sized bedrooms and multiple couches, the house can comfortably fit 10 people and has plenty of room to spread out. Our favorite part of the stay though, would have to be their massive backyard. Pictures DO NOT do it justice! The pool was to perfection and the outdoor furniture made the perfect hang spot for all of us over the course of the weekend. Their pool floats were fun and trendy, perfect for 20-somethings looking for a day in the sun if the weather permits! A fan favorite was their outdoor shower that might have well been an indoor shower with the quality water pressure and heat that came through!

Can't thank Cecilia and John enough for an AMAZING WEEKEND! Already looking forward to booking my next long weekend, or even week, at their East Hampton home! Definitely do yourself a favor and stay here, you will NOT be disappointed! :)

Owner's Response: Thanks Amanda for you lovely comments. We are always so pleased when people appreciate and enjoy the house. I wouldn't call the backyard "massive" but it's got plenty of room for the important things--lounging, swimming, and eating! Baseball games are harder :) We always love having guests who are respectful and happy in the house. Please come again. Thanks, Cecilia

Family friendly and charming

  • 5 of 5

This is the nicest house we have rented yet in terms of style, comfort and convenient location. Wonderful details throughout and very nice owners. Our family really appreciated the thoughtful way they helped us plan for arrival--making sure the house was suitable for our kids and had kid-friendly furnishing (it does). We'll be back.

Cozy Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year renting off-season, and our second at this house. Once we found this place, we resolved to come back and had a great time both years.

The house is spacious and bright—it’s got a great fireplace and full dining room for fall/winter evenings. Big kitchen is very well equipped.

All the bedrooms are comfortable and beautifully furnished, and the hot water, etc. is great.

Best of all is the location—right in the village so you can walk everywhere and really close to the ocean beach. We would pop down for a morning and evening walk in less than 2 minutes. Also, the house is large but has numerous cozy corners for reading, relaxing, napping, and all the other things our family likes best.

(There is also a great library!)

The Fords, the owners are warm, helpful, and attentive.

We will be back next year!

Great time again!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th year back at this house. It seems to work

well for everyone in the family. The teenagers love being able to walk or bike to town and their beach—so do the adults. Not needing to drive everywhere is great. The little kids like the hot-tub near the pool—it’s like a private pool to them. I enjoyed the great kitchen and the comfortable beds. Also, lying next to the pool in the hammock.

Thanks—we’ll be back next year!

Great Summer Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the Hamptons from CA and we had a great time in this home. The kitchen is well stocked, the dining room was great for groups, and the pool/Jacuzzi were amazing. Everything is a close walk and the car that comes with the house is perfect for exploring the hamptons. The owners were very responsive, flexible and accommodating.

Lovely antique filled spacious home.

  • 5 of 5

As soon as I walked in the door I felt at home. The beautiful rustic antiques and folk art looked like what I'd want in my own home. Each room is flooded with light at some time of the day and the sun porch has windows on 3 sides so it's always cheery. The huge couches in the living room facing a roaring fire are the perfect place to be on a chilly day. As a former professional chef, I found the kitchen stocked with everything needed for a fine meal. When we didn't want to cook, it was a short walk to Citarella. Our stay was in the early spring so we weren't able to try out the pool. The internet was fast, the property clean and the owners were incredibly helpful when we had some difficulty finding the house. I have recommended this property to friends and family.
