Dutch Colonial Dream
I am not sure how it is possible but this home may be even better in person than in the photos. My family had a dream weekend here in this charming house. Location: This home is located in the ultimate area. We were able to walk to everything - beach, shops, restaurants, etc. The beach was further than the restaurants and shops but still very doable (about a mile). We had a car with us for this trip so we used it to drive to East Hampton and Montauk. These towns (and others) were incredibly accessible from this house since it is on a main road. We had the easiest and most scenic drive on our way. Despite being on a main road, there is still a lot of privacy associated with this property. We hardly heard traffic and still felt like we were tucked away. Exterior: This home is c-h-a-r-m-i-n-g! The green lawn, incredible pool, and welcoming patio made it nearly impossible to go inside. We had so much fun swimming and relaxing outside. The pool has some shallower parts and gets gradually deeper which is a nice accommodation for all. The water was warm and made night swims fun, too. There was plenty of seating and even a nice grill if you care to cook your own dinner. The hydrangeas gave the full Hamptons experience and every part of the grounds were impeccably maintained. Interior: The home was immaculate and inviting! Each room was beautiful and welcoming. The beds were very comfortable and made for a very nice sleep. All bathrooms were a great combo of vintage yet functional and clean. The home is decorated with an art deco flair but has modern conveniences. This home is great to relax in! We especially enjoyed the kitchen and how functional it was. There is ample space to enjoy all over the house as well. Another part about the home we loved was the fact that we could borrow chairs for the beach and there were plenty of plates, cups, etc. Other: Anne is a wonderful host. She provided a vast amount of information for us upon arrival. She gave recommendations for places to eat, places to visit, and even had ideas for rainy days. The check in and check out process could not have been easier. I ended up having a question during our stay and texted her. Anne gave me a prompt and helpful response. She was very kind and helped make our stay amazing. 10/10 - would definitely visit again.
