Inside, the cherry and coffeewood kitchen cabinets include Viking and Bosch appliances and granite countertops. The interior is handcrafted, with white oak and cherry floors, cathedral basswood ceilings with skylites and poplar wood beams.

All bedrooms have TVs outlets. A powder room is located on the landing between floors.

Walking the grounds reveals dozens of species of trees, with a hedge row of white pines providing complete privacy from neighbors and the road. A five minute hike on a back trail will take you to the local farm stand.

About Stephen M

My wife and I are retired teachers, science and spanish, and I' m a cabinetmaker from a previous career. We've been working on our place now for 20 years, and it is quite nice. We travel a bit now, seeing grandkids and family, and go south summers fixing up a place down there. We are both owners and renters, seeing what other people offer and what we like,so we've worked to create a unique and memorable spot here in the Hamptons. We prefer longer term renters, 1 to 2 weeks minimum, and would love to find people who return here yearly.

Stephen M purchased this house in 1997

Why Stephen M chose Hamptons

The property has beautiful trees and landscaping and is situated in a quiet neighborhood that is private and secluded.

A Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this residence with my boyfriend for 10 days, and it was perfect from beginning to end. Stephen, the host, was fantastic. He was quickly responsive to all questions before the trip, and followed up with us a few days into our vacation to double check we were all set. The house itself is beautiful, and the pictures do not do it justice. Everything is clean, the kitchen is fully stocked with whatever you could ever need to cook, and the property, too, is stunning - gorgeous gardens, fantastic pool, and a fire pit for later in the night! The location is terrific as well. About an 8 minute walk to a farm that sells lots of produce, and a short drive to beaches, grocery store, downtown, etc. It was very hard to leave, and we will certainly be returning!

Great stay in a warm, beautiful space

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 spent a wonderful 10 days in this house, and we hope to return. The home is full of particularly unique and often beautiful touches -- unique woodwork, high ceilings, wildflowers/landscaping -- and a full kitchen and very nice swimming pool (comfortable beds, too). The owner, who we met, is a talented craftsman (and a nice guy) and he has created a home full of life and personality. Perfect location for us -- just slightly out of the way of the crowds, several good restaurants right nearby, and it's precisely 10 minutes to either Southampton or Sag Harbor. Nice, quiet bay beach 5 minutes away. We needed some restful time together as a family and this was the perfect spot. Five stars.

Wonderful, Quiet Vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Steve and Rafaela were lovely hosts, before and during our stay. The house felt immediately like coming home with every detail taken care of. The pool is gorgeous with a Weber grill for entertaining. In fact we enjoyed every part of the house from the pool to the front yard to the well appointed kitchen - to the walk to the local farmers market. I highly recommend this house and hope to come back soon!

Our favorite summers

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this house for the last two summer seasons and we absolutely love it! The location is ideal--easy access to Southampton and Sag Harbor villages within 15 minutes, but removed enough from the busy summer traffic to still be peaceful. Also key to the location is the quick conveniences like a deli, good restaurants and a farm stand 2 minutes away and a 4 minute drive to Towd Point beach. Also nearby are great bike trails, ponds for kayaking and tennis courts. It offers great space for entertaining outdoors, and an excellent kitchen for those who like to cook. The grounds and outdoor areas are beautiful and very well maintained. Owners are very accessible and helpful, very respectful and attentive to their renters' needs. It's a perfect place for a casual getaway, great for a private retreat or for a group gathering, any time of year.
