8 Hamptons Summer Rentals That Haven’t Been Snatched Up Yet
Summer is just around the corner and with vaccine rollouts well under way, you may be considering rescheduling that Hamptons trip that got canceled last year. But in order to have your best summer ever, you’ll need to book a coveted rental. Fortunately, it’s not too late to jump on one of these prime spots, ranging from giant properties for groups looking to go in on a summer share to small (read: relatively affordable) cottages ideal for an intimate retreat with a friend or two. Check out a handful of gorgeous Hamptons rentals below.
Editor’s note: Please remember to practice social distancing protocols while traveling and to check with local authorities for healthy and safety guidelines.
1. WATER MILL (SLEEPS 8)
This head-to-toe wooden beach house with a private pool is so Insta-worthy, you’ll want to stage a photoshoot. It’s dripping in chic furniture and modern art inside. There’s a giant kitchen for those who want to chef it up, as well as a fun, colorful bar for the wannabe mixologists. If you can pull yourself away from this stunner, head to nearby Scott Cameron, Mecox and Sagg Main beaches.
2. EAST HAMPTON, NORTHWEST HARBOR (SLEEPS 6)
This cute wooden beach house was made for culinary entertainment, with a stunning outdoor dining area flanked by a vine-covered veranda. The house is owned by a chef, so you better believe that the kitchen is made for a professional—it features a six burner Viking stove, Viking dishwasher and Northland refrigerator. Wood and burgundy colors accent the house, with its high ceilings, and gorgeous stone fireplace. East Hampton Village is a quick trip away.
3. MONTAUK (SLEEPS 15)
A white and slate grey family house that’s all about the water views, this gorgeous home is located right on Montauk Lake, so you can catch the sparkling waves any time of the day. Enjoy a lazy day around the infinity pool or if you’re feeling up for it, grab paddle boards and kayaks (the house comes with them!) and take a spin around the lake. Note: These spectacular digs were made with families in mind (truly, no bachelor or bachelorette parties allowed by request of the owners).
4. EAST HAMPTON (SLEEPS 8)
This house is for the design and architecture savvy. We live for a mid-century modern look and this gorgeous, deep navy blue and wood accented beach house designed by famed architect Carl Koch hits all the marks. It’s got tell-tale geometric lines, large windows and glass sliding doors to let lots of light in. The living room (with a fireplace), kitchen, and bedrooms are ample and airy, so you and your crew won’t feel squeezed in at all. If you don’t feel like hanging out on the expansive wraparound deck with a hammock, lounge by the pool surrounded by teak chairs. After a day of relaxing, take a short walk down the path to arrive to your private beach at Lion Head Bay to enjoy a Hampton’s sunset.
5. EAST HAMPTON (SLEEPS 10)
Time to start planning your Hampton’s white party (while maintaining social distancing guidelines, of course). This stunning and spacious beach house keeps it simple and chic with a white, slate grey and blue palette throughout the home. It has massive ceilings to house a movie screening room, billiards table, gym and game room. And it has pretty much every kind of pool: sauna, outdoor heated pool and steam shower.
6. SOUTH HAMPTON (SLEEPS 12)
We’re pretty sure this house should be in an interior design magazine. This affordable-ish (by Hamptons standards, that is) yet gorgeous find is ideal for families. It boasts a private community beach, a salt water pool and tennis and basketball courts. It’s also closely located to apple or pumpkin picking and vineyards.
7. SOUTH HAMPTON (SLEEPS 9)
An adorable cottage that is just a quickie walk to Peconic Bay beach. It feels as if this *could* be your house, with more of a rustic, lived-in feel than the standard palatial, massive Hamptons digs (if that’s what you’re going for). It still has a swimming pool, tricked out kitchen and fireplaces though, because, well, it’s the Hamptons
8. EAST HAMPTON (SLEEPS 12)
Modern Alpine ski-chalet vibes, but make it Hamptons. We took one look at this open-floor plan format place and were itching to book it. It’s got this Scandinavian feel that makes it feel so hygge chic no matter the time of the year. There’s a souped up chef’s kitchen, pool, clawfoot bathtub and is near East Hampton Village, Sag Harbor, and Wainscott Beach.
