***THIS PROPERTY IS AVAILABLE FOR A WINTER RENTAL STARTING OCT. 1 2014 TO APRIL 30 2015 PLEASE INQUIRE.
Cute well decorated cottage in the North Sea area of Southampton.
North Sea is a historic area of Southampton, NY. The cottage is located just behind one of Long Island's largest bodies of fresh water, Big Fresh Pond. It is also located about a 5-10 minute bike ride from Wolf Swamp Sanctuary, the Conscience Point National Wildlife Refuge, Scallop Pond and the North Sea Harbor. This area is one of the most beautiful and historic in all the Hamptons. It's where the English settlers landed back in the mid 1600's!!!
The cottage is located just about a mile from the Southampton Jitney stop on the 27 and from the Southampton train station and less than a mile up the road from the Southampton Village.
The cottage has a gated private front yard with lounge chairs, BBQ grill, fire pit, beautiful lush garden, fresh herb garden and perfect for outdoor lounging from the late Spring to the early Fall months.
The cottage is an open studio loft style free standing house with a full kitchen with all the cooking utensils you will need. A full bathroom with shower and a sleeping loft as you can see in the pictures with a queen size bed Tempurpedic mattress (most comfortable mattress EVER!) The sleeping loft also has a window so it doesn't feel stuffy or claustrophobic up (email hidden) is a low ceiling loft that one cannot stand up in but it has plenty of room.
Please note that the main sleeping area is a queen size sleeping loft with two built in large side tables located up the stairs and above the living room it is a queen size but if you are very tall or not able to climb and descend stairs to or from a sleeping loft this probably won't be the right place for you to sleep while here.
The other sleeping option here is the Ikea Ektorp fold out sleeper sofa located in the living room below the sleeping loft. This is a perfect spot for watching a movie in bed as it's in the living room where the TV is. For those who know this is a VERY comfortable, if not THE most comfortable sleeper sofa bed on the market. The mattress is a mini tempurpedic style memory foam mattress. It is full size and fits 2 people very comfortably. This is an option if you do not want to use the sleeping loft. It is super easy to open up and put back.
Up to 4 people can sleep comfortably here but it is really meant for 2 people but if it's just a few days then it won't be a problem as I'm sure you'll be out most of the time! If you decide to have 3-4 people there will just be not a lot of privacy as it is an open loft style house, however the 2 "beds" are separated as one is on top in the loft and the sofa bed is located under the sleeping loft. There are also 4 outdoor lounge lounge chairs and enough chairs for 4 people to sit around the fire pit so everyone can chill out together in the garden!
WIFI and a full cable TV w most movie channels and built in DVD player with some DVD's to choose from or bring your own.
There are plenty of linens, towels, beach towels and extra pillows and blankets located in the closet and the chest in the living room for up to 4 people.
Bathroom is equipped with a hairdryer, and even a curling iron for the ladies!
Great heating in the winter months! Great AC in the Summer months! Please turn off the AC when leaving, do not leave it on when not there please to conserve energy. :-)
Windows to garden in every corner.
Plenty of closet space available!
2 Bikes are available to use while you are renting as well as 2 beach umbrellas, a cooler, classic picnic basket, 4 beach chairs and plenty of beach towels for 4 people.
Biking distance to Main St. in the Southampton Village (about 20 minutes) and tons of great restaurants and shopping. Just a straight line down about 1 mile or so.
**During the summer season (May 15-Sept. 15 usually) parking fee's apply at most beaches from Memorial Day to Labor Day and there is no parking permit because permits are issued to the car and not a hanging placard that can be shared unfortunately. Road D Beach on Meadow Lane in Southampton is FREE PARKING! Get there early though during the summer months! Mecox Beach is for non-residents as well, but parking fee's of about $20 apply. Cooper's Beach is $40 to park for the day. Sometimes its best to just the a cab as almost all the beaches require permits.
This will be a magical and private Hamptons experience with all the comforts of home!!
Fresh fish market, liquor store and deli grocery store across the street!!!
***If you are bringing any dogs (2 maximum) there is a $25 per day charge. Please add an additional guest to your stay if you are 2. If you are coming alone then you must put 3 guests. If you will be 4 guests then it will be added separately.
****$25/per day extra person charge per person after 2 people.

The cottage is located in a compound of 3 houses, the cottage being one of the houses. it is not a guest house of another house, it has it's own little gated private yard and is located behind the other two houses.
It is located right off of North Sea Road, near Big Fresh Pond and a lot of nature preserves and wildlife refuges.
The parking lot for the compound is located right off North Sea Road, please only park along the "longer" fence in front of the front large house, please do not park along the shorter fence which is parking only for the tenants in the 2nd house. Your parking spot is marked with a metal dog sculpture holding a NO PARKING sign, this is your spot!
Please also sure to throw your trash out in the parking lot in the blue bins when you leave please also recycle. The recycling bin is in the bottom cupboard next to the stove. Please just leave that there for me to discard.
Please do not in the summer months leave the AC on when you are not there. This will result in an automatic forfeit of the rental.

Wonderful cottage in a great location. Short trip to town, the beach and restaurants all around. I can't wait to come back. Property was very easy to book and the overall condition of the property was great.
