About Doug

My name is Douglas O'Connell and I own and manage the property along with my brother John. The house, 'O'Connell's Cottage' was purchased in 1950 by our Grandfather, John O'Connell and his wife Martha. Our family has been enjoying the wonderful house, beach, and surrounding community of beach loving families for over 50 years. We love the area and community and want to make sure that everyone that stays in our house has a wonderful experience.

Doug purchased this cottage in 1950

Why Doug chose Hamptons

If you are looking to enjoy a truly fantastic beach getaway, look no further, because this location has everything a family could want when it comes to a beach vacation. The house itself was built in 1950 and a second story addition was added in the 80's. It has recently been updated in order to create a true beachy relaxed experience, yet it still retains many of the charms of an older home. The house boasts three berooms, one of which is a luxurious queen suite with a family area and a deck where you can enjoy breathtaking, unobstructed views of Peconic Bay. Within 100 steps you are on a lovely private beach with calm Bay waters where you can relax while your children enjoy a safe swimming environment. If you get tired of beach living you are only a short drive to great restaurants, charter fishing, night life, and world class shopping in Southampton, Easthampton, Westhampton, or perhaps a nice day trip to 'The End' of Long Island, Montauk Point. Whatever it is you are looking for in a beach getaway, you will be able to find it right here. Come, Enjoy!

What makes this cottage unique

This location is perfectly suited for a family that wants to get away and enjoy some quality time together in a family oriented beach setting. It offers a quiet, relaxed atmosphere with calm safe waters for the children to enjoy, so that parents can relax and unwind. In addition, you are located in the middle of the Hamptons, in close proximity to fabulous dining, exciting night life, and wonderful ocean beaches just to name a few of the enticing attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I rented the O'Connell cottage (which is more like a house), for the month of August 2013. Shinnecock Hills in Hampton Bays is truly the perfect family place for a family vacation. The location was ideal for our family, as we have 7 year old twins, who loved being steps away from the beach. The house was clean and airy, with an amazing upper deck view of the water, perfect for enjoying the famous sunsets of Peconic Bay. I can't say enough about how accommodating the owners were. They made sure we were comfortable, and gave great recommendations to local restaurants. One of the best beaches for children because the bay water is clean, calm, and best of all warm! Oakhurst beach is a very private area with minimal public access, almost exclusively residential. We highly recommend staying here, you won't be disappointed.

Great host, great house, great location

Doug really cares about helping guests have a good time in his house. The location can't be beat. Right on a beautiful, private beach. Hampton Bays is lovely, and the house has everything you need for a great vacation.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful two week stay at Doug's cottage. The house was very well maintained and comfortable. The view from the second floor deck was lovely and provided a great view of the bay. The easy access to the beach is a definite plus. Also had pleasure of meeting Doug great guy easy to deal with.

Adorable house on the Peconic

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful week in Hampton Bays at Doug's cottage. The air conditioning worked great during this very hot week. It was so nice to be able to just walk out the door and hit the beach. The house is comfortable and clean and I look forward to vacationing here next year. Doug was very helpful with any questions I had.

Very comfortable stay

  • 4 of 5

The five in our party had a clean and cheery house to vacation in for the week. We were conveniently situated to many of our interests- the beaches being primary. We had ample ability to cook and barbecue, thus saving money on eating out constantly. The view from the back deck was beautiful and quiet and added to our comfort. We would consider a return stay!

Great vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

Overall the house was very nice and clean. The location is great, located just steps from the beach. The house had everything you need for a comfortable stay except a microwave which is a staple for most of us. On the plus side there is a washer and dryer which is really nice. I almost did not stay here because it was not listed they were present. You should bring your own beach towels because their were none in the house. The beach chairs and umbrella need to be replaced because they are old and broken. Other than these small inconveniences the place is great, the view from the upper deck is incredible and I would definitely stay there again without hesitation. Doug was very nice and easy to work with.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time here. The house is a very short walk down to the bay beach, and the deck has a beautiful water view. Very easy to feel alone on this lovely stretch of beach, and it was a real treat being so close to the water.

We grew quite fond of the house. Not luxurious, but a cute little beach cottage that more than did the job. It has a great second-floor master bedroom/sitting room combo. That's where the comfy couches and large screen tv are, as well as the aforementioned deck. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to be near the water. We also enjoyed Hampton Bays, which is far less crowded and more relaxed than the other Hamptons.

We had the pleasure of meeting the owner, who couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. If you book the house, ask him about local restaurants.
