"We stayed a week in Lisa's house in Quogue, NY, and had an amazing time. We were a total of 13 across 3 generations, from 72 all the way down to 6 years old.
The house is located conveniently just east of Westhampton Beach, which means you'll avoid some of the heavy traffic going towards Southampton and points further east. Of course, if you are planning to spend a lot of time in those towns further east, be sure to account for driving times. We did a couple of trips to Montauk, Southampton and Shelter Island, but for the most part it's perfect just staying at the house and around Quogue.
The house is super spacious. They were plenty of bedrooms (and beds) for our group and the setup is really nice to get enough distance, if needed. There is an extension to the main house with a loft where one family can stay, then a big bedroom with an en-suite bathroom downstairs in the main house and the other bedrooms are upstairs in the main house.
The kitchen is well equipped and having 2 dishwashers comes in really handy with such a large group. We loved the large dining room table that fit all of us comfortably! When we arrived the house was well stocked with daily necessities like toilet paper, paper towels, spices/herbs and the like. Of course we later on bought most of what we used (and left some other things behind), but it's really nice not to have to worry about the basics on the first evening of your arrival.
The kids of course agreed that the pool was the best part. It's set in a huge backyard where we were lucky enough to spot some deers hanging out early in the morning. We also brought some (pool) toys ourselves, but again, the house is well equipped with boogie boards, balls and the like. Lisa was kind enough to setup a fence between the terrace and the pool just for extra safety with the kids.
What's the nicest house without a great host, right? Well, Lisa is truly amazing. Leading up to our arrival she took care of the village beach permit and was very accommodating with regards to our somewhat fluent arrival time. We had a couple of small issues with the pool filter not running and the patio door not locking and both times Lisa immediately sent somebody to take care of it.
We'd stay at Lisa's house again in a heartbeat and highly recommend it to any large family looking for an amazing vacation in the Hamptons!"
