Dune Rd's Pond Pt Peninsula WHB Bay Views Walk to Private Ocean Beach

Bedrooms 3
Half Baths1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

Beach House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7) water views walk to ocean beach

This open and airy beach cottage rests on a peninsula off Dune Rd in Westhampton Beach called Pond Point. The unusual setting provides beautiful bay views from almost every room in the house, including the dining deck off of the kitchen/living room. Vibrant splashes of color throughout the house act as instant mood filters. As you walk through the front door you will immediately sense this is a place for easy family living. All the the bedrooms are spacious and well appointed. The master bedroom has a queen sized bed and a twin sized daybed. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed and the third bedroom features two twin beds.

A short walk takes you across Dune Road and through the dunes to the Ocean Beach which is accessible only by foot and only to those in the nearby houses. Access to this private beach is a huge feature of the house and the Pond Point neighborhood.

There a two neighborhood access points to the bay, one directly across the street from the house which is great for launching a kayak (one two seat kayak and two single seat kayaks are available with house rental) or paddle board and the other a short walk around the corner, is a full boat launch.

After a day of surf and sun on the beach come back to this charming beach cottage and enjoy breathtaking sunsets over the bay on the rooftop deck.

A five minute car ride or mile 1 1/2 mile scenic bike ride takes you into town (Main Street) where you will find an abundant farmers market, wonderful cafes, restaurants and boutiques.

Pond Point is a most desirable neighborhood for families as children can play and ride bikes throughout the neighborhood while protected from Dune Rd. car traffic.

Please see my stellar reviews for a renters perspective on the house.

About Heather

We bought this summer home while living in Manhattan and needing an escape from city life. I have been summering in Westhampton since I was a child. Now my own children are loving the beach life and learning to surf.

Heather purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Heather chose Westhampton Beach

The house is steps away from the world renowned Hamptons ocean beaches and only 90 miles from NYC. Accessible by car, train and the Hampton Jitney bus.

What makes this cottage unique

This is a true beach house with a 1930's feel although it was buit in the 1960's. The view of water from every room in the house, exposed beams, wide planked floors and beadboard walls make you feel like you are at the beach even when you are inside. We love to spend lots of time on the beach return home for meals then back again without ever getting into the car.

The short walk to both the bay and the ocean makes this property our ideal vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy to spend our third summer vacation in this house. The proximity to NYC, the beach, the bay and great restaurants, makes this a true jem. Sunset views are just a short walk to the end of Harbor Road. The house is clean, nicely decorated and fully equipped for cooking. We enjoyed entertaining and taking in the beautiful scenery on the rooftop.

Given that the house is surrounded by the bay, there is typically a nice cross breeze if the windows are open. For nights that are particularly warm, there are window air conditioners in the bedrooms that take out the heat and humidity.

The house is fully stocked for the beach with chairs, towels and kyacks. The beach wagon made it easy to bring all our beach gear to the ocean.

My husband and I are hoping to return for a week in 2019.

My family and I had an incredible two weeks in Heather's home. She had all of the supplies for the house and beach that we could need! The home was clean, comfortable, and perfect for a family with tons of games, toys and books for the kids. We can't wait to return!!

Wonderful beach cottage for our annual beach trip!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our 3 boys and I had a great beach week in mid-June at Heather's cute beach house. We live in Colorado so we look forward to our beach week each year and this was our first time vacationing on Long Island. We had so much fun and this house was absolutely perfect for our family. The house is clean, cozy and had everything we needed for a memorable beach vacation. Location is perfect - just a short walk to the ocean and literally steps to the bay. The stretch of ocean beach across from the house is very clean and private and we enjoyed surf-casting there and even caught 20 inch striped bass right from the shore. Water was a bit cold in June (58 degrees) but that didn't stop us from going in the water. We loved using the kayaks and the stand-up paddle board available at the house on the bay. We loved the outdoor shower with hot water! So nice to come back from the beach and have all the kids showered and clean before even entering the home. The candelabra over the dining room table with real candles was a nice touch for evening meals. We used the super-nice outdoor grill a few times and there was an extra propane tank just in case. We had a lobster feast one night and there was even a giant pot in the kitchen perfect for boiling lobsters. Our boys loved the on-site plentiful legos to entertain themselves. Beds were comfortable and the cottage is quite large and very open/ airy. The neighbors are friendly as well!

Heather was extremely helpful and called me the week before to give us tips on where to launch kayaks, etc. Can't say enough great things about this place and how attentive the owner is. Thanks again for the great beach vacation!

40th Birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our daughters 40th birthday over the 4th of July and it was a perfect house for the 6 of us! My brother and sister in law live directly across the street and it was an all family reunion! 6 kids and 10 adults! Perfect for getting to the beach and the bay. The top deck made for perfect viewing of the july 4th fireworks. Hope to revisit in 2 years for the next members 40th! All and all it couldn't have been better!

Charming cottage with a terrific location that has easy and close access to the ocean and the bay.

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year that we rented. The cottage was spotless, nicely decorated and had all the amenities required to cook and make a beach vacation comfortable. Proximity to the beach, bay, town of Westhampton and dining was key.

Watching the sunset nightly was a treat.

We plan to come back next year!
