VALMYA: Comfort, Privacy, and Beauty At the Beach. WEEKLY MINIMUM STAY THROUGHOUT YEAR.

615 Seven Ponds Towd Road

Water Mill, Southampton, NY

A Lovely Shade-Tree Line, Enhanced By Indigenous Shrubbery, Separate a Meandering, Country Road From the Home Known As Valmya.

Located In the Prestigious Water Mill Section of Southampton (North of Highway 27, But, Oh, So Southern In Style and Flair), In a Somewhat More Secluded Location Than Other Areas of this Highly Popular Long Island Destination, Valmya Is Still an Easy Drive/Bike Ride To the Beach As Well As To the Quaint Villages/Stands Featuring Locally Grown Vegetables/Delis/Restaurants and Horse Show Activities Situated Close By.

This Newly Refurbished Home (Also New To the Rental Market) Offers a Sense of NATURE, Privacy and Comfort - Not Always So Easily Found These Days; It Is Truly Conducive To the Complete Relaxation You Seek (and Deserve) During Your Vacation Time In the Hamptons.

The House Itself Is Situated On a Handsomely Landscaped (Marder’s To the Rescue!), Oversized Lot Filled with Plants Which Bloom Three Seasons of the Year. These Blend Beautifully with the Forrested Back Section of the Property. There Is Plenty of Room For Children, & Pups, To Run and Play and the Area Is Completely Fenced. A Hammock, an Organic Pond, a Chuckling Waterfall, a Manicured Lawn, and a 20’ X 40’ Heated Pool, Defined By a Spacious, 360 Degree Deck, Separate the Wooded Area From the Home. The Large, Multi-Million Dollar Residences Located Relatively Closeby Do Not Intrude Upon Your Privacy. Off Street Parking Is a Plus.

Outdoor Furnishings Are Upmarket Teak and Are Adequate For a Party of Eight ~ and Their Guests. Chaise Lounges At Poolside May Be Placed In Direct Sunlight or Under Shaded Space Provided By a Retractable Awning Which Runs the Full Length of the House. Outside Dining Facilities Are Found At a Large Table Complete with an Adjustable, Oversized Umbrella ~ a Delightful Location At Any Mealtime. A Weber Gas Grill and an Outdoor Firepit Make the Chillest Nights Warm, Cozy and Memorable.

Notable For Its Soaring Ceilings, Bright Yet Calming Color Scheme, Warm, Newly Refurbished Solid Oak Flooring, Eclectic Artwork & Furnishings - and Exquiste Natural Light - the Living Area of Valmya Is Literally the Centerpiece of a Fluid, Open Floor Plan. A Wood Burning Fireplace with Granite Surround Is Available For Cool Evenings. A Bose Sound System That Allows You To Listen To Your Own Music, Coupled with Its Own Audio Library, Enhances the Soothing Ambiance.

From this Great Room Space, One Can Access the D/R, a Full Bathroom, a Private Downstairs Bedroom , the Kitchen and Its Own Dining Facility, Miele W/D (No Need To Negociate Steps/Basement!), TV Room, Garage Access and the Upstairs Portion of the House.

The Kitchen Overlooks the Pool Area (Super For Parents) and Is Fully Equipted For the Most Discerning Chef. A Center Work Station Makes Meal Prep a Breeze. A Generous Sink, Miele D/W, Trashcompactor, Stainless Steel Refrigerator, Microwave and Professional Viking Stovetop/Oven, Are Positioned For Easy Use. A Large Farm Style Table Seats Eight. (There Is Additional Seating For Six In the Slightly More Formal D/R Located Immediately Off the Living Area). Sliding Glass Doors In the Kitchen Open Directly Onto the Pool Deck.

In the TV Room You’ll Find Comfortable Seating For a Group, a New Flat Screen 60” Hd/Bluray Wall Mounted Television with All Available Channels, a Wii Station, Drd, a Small DVD/Book Library Designed For Children, and Games and Books the Whole Family Will Enjoy. Wifi Is Included.

The First Floor Bedroom Offers a Queen Size Bed & Its Own DVD/ Flat Screen, 26” Hd/DVD TV. We Call this the Children’S Room Because, If Their Accomodations Are Added, Little Ones have No Reason To Negociate a Staircase.

The Second Floor Looks Down Over the Great Room and Is Comprised of Three Bedrooms and Two Baths.

A Spacious En-Suite Master B/R has a Private Balcony and Lovely Views of the Wooded Area Surrounding Valmya. In the Oversized Bath, You’Ll Appreciate Excellent Vanity Space, Two Basins, and a Make-Up Nook. You’Ll Also Enjoy the Corner, Jetted Garden Tub Overlooking the Grounds - As Well As a Separate Shower. The Potty Room Is Completely Private. A King Bed, a Walk-In Closet, and a Flat Screen 42” Hd, TV/DVD Player Round Out this Tranquil Space.

The Adjoing Room Is a Full Bath and Easily Meets Requirements of Guests Staying Upstairs

Next Comes the Center B/R. It Features Twin Beds and Is the Favorite of Siblings or, Perhaps, a Teen Who has a Friend Joining Him/Her On Vacation. A 26” Flat Screen Hd DVD/TV Is Naturally On Call.

The Third Bedroom has a King Bed & Its Own 26” Flat Screen Hd DVD/TV. Its Arched Window, Enhanced Color Scheme and Shade Treament, Make It One of the Most Inviting Rooms In the House

A One-Car Garage Is For Your Private Use. Parking For Others Is Somewhat Minimal But Can Certainly Be Accomplished.

Please Note That this Home Features a Top-of-the-Line Alarm System (That Governs Pool Use too). The Gate Onto the Grounds Is Coded and has Intercom Capabilities.

If You Happen To Be In the Hamptons, and Would Like To View the House, You May Contact Me and I'LL Arrange for Our Crew Chief, ERIKA FLORES, to Set Up an Appointment.

Fabulous Place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property for 2,5 weeks and had just a wonderful time! It is a beautiful house with a great yard in a quiet, yet convenient location just minutes from shops and restaurants!

The house itself is in pristine condition and fully equipped with everything one might need. Sofa, chairs and in particular the beds are very comfortable, the deck has also very comfortable chairs and an awning (very convenient). Everything in the house is of premier quality, furthermore it was spotlessly clean (no trace at all that a dog ever set its paws in this house).

Also a big thanks to the caretakers, very friendly and helpful!

With best regards from Germany

Sascha & Natascha

The checking in/out could not have been more simple or convenient. Arranging everything by email and phone was a breeze with absolutely zero issues along the way. The owner is a warm and great host and even went out of her way to pass along specific recommendations for some events in the area during our stay!

Because of the great yard and the proximity to fantastic beaches, our dogs had the best days of their lives at Valmya and we are currently trying to figure out how we can get back for another visit.

One final recommendation - reserve a few days more than you think you want because you will be SO sad when you have to leave!

Spectacular home, spectacular location!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second review after my second stay at this amazing house. This trip was a bit longer (at about 1 1/2 months) and beyond being even more beautiful than the pictures suggest, the house is just such a comfortable place to feel like you are actually living in The Hamptons. EVERYTHING you will need is waiting for you in the beautiful kitchen. The living spaces (inside and out) are generous and beautifully appointed. The bedrooms are extremely comfortable with great pillows and sheets. And the baths are lovely with a great whirlpool in the master that overlooks the grounds and gets the most gorgeous light at the end of the day.

And the location of the house is just perfect: Minutes from Southampton Village, a short and beautiful ride through the woods to Sag Harbour, 20 minutes to Riverhead and then back East and on to the North Fork and wine country, and literally a 4 minute drive to The Jitney which can take you to Manhattan in 2 hours!

And finally, if your sister or best friend were loaning you their house, they would likely not be as kind and caring and helpful and generous with their time and suggestions as the wonderful owners of this property who genuinely make everyone feel like family. I LOVE dog people! And just to be clear, if you do not have a dog or two to bring along, the house is absolutelyspotless and you would never know that so many 4-legged guests have visited and had the time of their lives!

PERFECTION!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

First, the photos of this property are not accurate..... As beautiful as it looks, the house is even more perfect in person. It is a great house with a beautiful, fully-fenced yard and is in a fabulous location just minutes from the village of Southampton and exactly 4 minutes drive from the jitney!

The house itself is in wonderful condition and everything you could want or need is there for your convenience. It is as if you borrowed a friend's perfectly outfitted home in one of the greatest vacation spots on the planet. The appliances, the furnishings, the bedding are all first quality and everything is sparkling clean.

The checking in/out could not have been more simple or convenient. Arranging everything by email and phone was a breeze with absolutely zero issues along the way. The owner is a warm and great host and even went out of her way to pass along specific recommendations for some events in the area during our stay!

Because of the great yard and the proximity to fantastic beaches, our dogs had the best days of their lives at Valmya and we are currently trying to figure out how we can get back for another visit.

One final recommendation - reserve a few days more than you think you want because you will be SO sad when you have to leave!

A Week in Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

My 7 girlfriends and I spend a week together every year at a different destination (Kennebunkport; Outer Banks; Martha's Vineyard..). When searching for a rental property, we look for certain amenities in our home-away-from-home. The Valmya checked off all of our boxes and more! The house and the surrounding woods were relaxing and serene. The pictures do not do the home justice. Beautifully appointed, the home was more like a private home than a vacation rental. Thank you, Pat, for opening your beautiful home to us! We never return to the same destination twice, but we all agree that if we decide to return to the Hamptons, we would definitely return to the Valmya!!

Beautiful Home, Peaceful Setting, Joyous Time in the Hamptons!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Valmya to celebrate my mother's birthday over a beautiful weekend in June and it could not have been better! Firstly, I've never seen our dog happier! There was so much room for him to run around! The photos of the house, especially the back yard don't do it justice! The home and grounds are immaculate. A rare find in a rental, this property is well decorated (the opposite of bare-bones ikea!), in perfect condition AND welcoming/comfortable :) ! We cooked most of our meals at the house with all of the Viking appliances (and the grill outside!) and enjoyed relaxing meals at the beautiful kitchen farm table as well as breakfast by the pool. Just a short drive away from a great market and Southampton (and beautiful Cooper's Beach where we parked for free in town and walked to), yet in a gorgeous peaceful woodsy location--you can't see any other houses! The back yard was incredible. Sun-filled and flower-filled you can't ask for anything more! The Owner made everything very easy and we felt like it was our home for our stay! Truly a pleasure. Lots of happy memories! Sad to leave, but hope to be back again! Thank you!!!!!

Christmas in the Hamptons

  • 5 of 5

Gale force winds couldn't keep us for enjoying the warmth of Valyma. Thank you, Pat, for giving us the opportunity to enjoy your beautiful home and grounds and letting me decorate it a little for Christmas. What a great living room for gathering around the fire and enjoying the family. Loved the table in the kitchen but just had to use the dining room for the family Christmas dinner. After a busy day, bedtime was most enjoyable in the very comfortable beds!! We had so hoped for snow and did get a dusting with some of the biggest flakes of snow that any of us have ever seen....it just didn't last, but was fun while it lasted. Seeing the pool covered outside and walking around the grounds made us long to see its beauty in the spring/summer. Feel in love with Citarella's -- so yummy. Everyone was so pleasant and accomodating. The time just went by way too quickly. Thanks again.

Owner's Response: Trish! Thank you so much! Delightful guests you and your family were; I felt very comfortable having you stay at Valmya because, as you may remember, Lee and I really view the home as our seond one - not merely a "rental" - so, who's there is pretty important to us! And you and Dick (and the balance of the family - pups included) filled the bill perfectly. It would be wonderful to have you return and see that pool uncovered...perhaps sometime in the future?? All the best to all of you and woofs and hugs to those Labs! Pat

SORRY~NO CREDIT CARDS. WEEKLY MINIMUM STAY REQUIRED ALL YEAR. PLEASE CHECK RATES & CALENDAR BEFORE INQUIRING.

Valmya is located in the prestigious village of Water Mill, part of Southampton...horse country as well as beach territory! The home is situated on a large, beautifully wooded, and planted, lot which allows for plenty of privacy - just you and wildlife - but is still very close to a variety of places to see/visit (includes grocery stores and restaurants).
