This beautiful cottage is on a 2 acre parcel 2 blocks from Peconic Bay and 3 miles to the ocean in Hampton Bays. We are in the town of Southampton. We are also 20 min to the North Fork and wine country.
The house is one of the most unique homes in the Hamptons. Our guest will experience a quiet stay in a clean and happy environment. During your stay you are free to use our pool, sit back in our beautiful gardens and relax.
The cottage has a private entrance at the top of the property which gives privacy to our quests. The cottage is 325 sq. ft. with 12 foot ceilings so it feel spacious with French doors skylight and 5 windows. The bathroom is sunny also with 2 windows.
We have a state of the art composting toilet. The toilet is electric. We believe in treading lightly on what we have left and to preserve it for the next generation.
Bring your bicycles and take the 5min. ride to a sandy beach, if you have a kayak even better. Parking is free. The ocean is less then 10 minutes away and day passes are available to all.
Taking the trip to Hampton Bays is like taking a trip back to the Hamptons back in the 70's. Less traffic and more affordable restaurants' .
The cottage has a microwave, Kurig coffee maker, small fridge. The fridge in the pictures has been replaced with a larger one. I will supply any special needs or wants for breakfast as well as goodies in the fridge. We do have a charcoal grill if needed, and a separate area to grill and relax over looking the fountain. I will supply everything needed for the grill except the food, all utensils charcoal and the table will be set for you just walk away and leave the cleaning to me....all I ask is no grilling after 8:00. The bed is a day bed has 2 new mattress and when open is a king . Guests who like to close it up during the day and just use it as a couch. Very cozy.
We also have a TV with DVD player and WIFI but no cable television. The Wi-Fi can go in and out . I am working with cablevision to correct it but I have been told it's the Hamptons and we have antiquated cell towers. Most of the time it's fine.
I would also like to mention that just because the check out is 12:00 everyone is welcome to relax at the pool and get the most out of the day.
This will be a vacation you will remember. Friends and family have named our home Tranquility Base.
Also please use my directions.
The Long Island Railroad is 10 min. away. The Hampton Jitney stop 10 minutes as well. We are always happy to provide transportation to and from each location.
We do except small quiet non shedding dogs on a case to case basis for a slightly larger deposit. We also except children under the age 9 months.
We have over 7 restaurants on the water. The Canal Rhumbas and Cow Fish are among my favorites. We also have Oakland's on the ocean with a view of both the ocean and Shinnecock inlet. If your having a rainy weekend the Villa Paul has a fire place with old charm and great Italian Food. I will have a list of other fine restaurants in the area.
I was approached a couple of times this year about hosting a 10 year wedding anniversary as well as a birthday party. We have plenty of parking and have had 30 people here in the past with a tent on the driveway and the party at the pool. It is something we are considering again.
The cottage is closed now for the winter, and will reopen in April.
The house is located off the Sunrise Hwy exit 65 south and 20.min.south of the LIE.
Enjoy the pictures. Barbara & Rob

My husband and I have just got back from an excellent stay in Hampton Bays with Barbara. From the very first communication she was so helpful and great to do business with. Her cottage is beautiful and so relaxing. She was such a wonderful host and made our stay as relaxing as possible, from collecting us from the station to giving us great tips for things to do in the area. I would certainly recommend a stay here and would love to return in the summer!
My boyfriend and I celebrated our anniversary with a lovely weekend getaway at Barbara's cottage. The cottage is absolutely charming, immaculately clean, and a very comfortable place to return to after a day's trip. Barbara was born to host! She is very responsive, friendly, approachable, and no detail was overlooked. She was even so kind to get us flowers and champagne for our anniversary!
The cottage is stocked with goodies such as drinks, snacks, breakfast items, and an instant coffee maker. The bed is a full size fold-out and super comfy. The composting toilet takes a little getting used to, but I'm always happy to do my part for the environment. The hand soap smelled so fresh too. I appreciated all the little details and care.
Location wise, we couldn't be happier. The Hamptons Bay is a great area with superb local restaurants, we especially enjoyed Cowfish (so perfect on a nice day) and Rumba, both recommended by Barbara. The property is private, but centrally located, with an easy drive to the LI vineyards and to Southampton.
We highly recommend without a doubt, it was the perfect weekend getaway!
This was a great experience for my husband and I, to leave Manhattan and have five days of absolute peace. The location is close to everything bay beaches, ocean and the rest of the Hamptons, we loved Sag Habour, Orient Point (drive down to the beach at end of Lands End Drive, wineries on both the North and South Fork were good. A must for foodies the bar-b-bue on the back deck at home,Rumba and Cowfish. Barbara and Rob we're great hosts,there when you needed them friendly,helpful and really interested in ensuring the stay was fabulouslo! Thank you and we will be back!
Another fabulous stay with Barbara and Rob. Everything was just perfect! Plus, our dog Jake has a new best buddy in Cooper. All of us are looking forward to our next stay...
We had a lovely time at Barbara's cottage! Barbara was so welcoming and had several great recommendations for restaurants and attractions in the area. Her property is beautiful and my boyfriend and I spent a lot of time by the pool. Barbara went the extra mile to make our experience one to remember. While we were chatting by the pool we told Barbara that our one year anniversary was coming up. Shortly after she brought out a bottle of champagne for us! We're saving it for the actual date, and we'll make a toast to Barbara, Rob and Cooper!
We can't wait for our next trip to the cottage.
Barbara is truly an amazing host, we felt very welcome as soon as we arrived. The place is absolutely beautiful and very quiet -- perfect for couples and small families. Barbara decorated everything herself and she did it amazingly -- her zen garden, pond, swimming pool -- everything is just breathtaking. She also provided us everything we needed to enjoy the lovely beaches in the area. It is the perfect weekend getaway from the city. We will definitely be back there again!
My 6 month daughter, my wife and me stayed for a weekend. The cottage is neat and well decorated. We could use the beautiful large yard with the swimming pool. The house is in a quiet wooded area. Barbara is a great host! She helped us quickly with any issues, gave us tips about the area and we even spent an dinner with her and her husband. It was a great experience.
We made reservation for 3 nights and we loved it so much we extended one more night. We had a great time with our puppies and Cooper D. Cottage was cozy and garden was beautiful, not too mention quiet, semi-private beach in 2 min drive. Barbara and Rob were the best host we've ever met and we plan to be back in near future. Thank you for an unforgettable memories!
Barbara & Rob were truly incredible hosts. They both gave us a warm welcome, and we felt as if we were part of their family. Their place is just enchanted and absolutely beautiful. We had an amazing weekend and will definitely return.
We felt less like we were staying with Airbnb hosts and more like we were staying with good friends. Barbara and Rob are great people and their dog, Cooper is hilarious.
We really enjoyed our time with them and at the cottage.
The cottage has everything you could want and the gardens are just stunning. They did a fabulous job designed the property and creating different spaces. You feel yourself relax the moment you get there.
We spent mornings walking along the bay beach close by and afternoons at the pool. We brought our dog and really appreciated that it was all fenced in. The location is great and a close drive to wineries, beaches and outdoor restaurants.
Barbara was born to host. She provided tips on beaches and restaurants. The fridge was stocked with drinks and snacks and there beach towels, chairs and umbrellas to borrow. She always made sure we had everything we needed, from coolers to bug spray. One afternoon, we talked about a shared love of tuna tartare. The next day, she MADE US TUNA TARTARE and brought it to the pool!!!
I don't know which is more rare and special, the place or Barbara and Rob.
