Vacation Rentals in The Hamptons, New York

Rene Syler heads to The Hamptons, New York's exclusive beach hideaway, to help friends Melissa and Munah find the perfect month-long retreat. With a budget of $80,000, these ladies are ready to rock The Hamptons!
The Hamptons, New York, is an exclusive beach getaway that's ideal for a month-long retreat. The term Hamptons is synonymous with luxury, sophistication, impressive estates, celebrities, and, of course, white sand beaches.

The Hamptons are located two hours from Manhattan and are comprised of two towns -- Southampton and East Hampton. Within those towns are a series of smaller communities called villages and Hamlets. Because it's so close to New York City, visitors have access to the best of everything. From world-class shops and restaurants, to top notch plays and concerts, it's easy to see why so many people flock to The Hamptons!

Single gal pals Melissa, Munah and a few of their friends are looking for a little of that lifestyle. They are searching for the perfect Hamptons homestead where they can hit the beach, dive into the social scene and relax for a couple of weeks -- or longer. After a few tough years, the ladies decided to get some friends together and rock The Hamptons.

"Munah and I have been friends for what, ten years? And we always wanted to rent a house in The Hamptons so we're doing it this summer!" said Melissa.

Their perfect 'sweet retreat' would have the following criteria:

  • At least four bedrooms
  • Close to the beach
  • Easy access to the social scene
  • A private swimming pool
Their budget is $80,000 for the month!

Sagaponack Manor for Rent - This five-bedroom, four-bathroom luxury estate is just a mile away from the village of Bridgehampton. With lush decor and a bathroom the size of a 'New York City studio apartment,' the women are blown away by its beauty. But when Rene shares its $85,000 a month price tag, will the ladies walk away?

Georgica Estate for Rent - This six-bedroom, eight-and-a-half-bathroom estate is 7,200 square feet with a whopping price tag of $165,000 for the month of August! The property is situated in the very chic and exclusive town of East Hampton, where there's never a shortage of shops and restaurants. Located 'south of the highway,' the Georgica Estate is in the premiere spot where there are CEOs and celebrity sightings. For more information on this property visit homeaway.com.

Contemporary East Hampton Haven for Rent - This five-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bathroom property sits on 1.5 secluded acres. At 5,500 square feet, this private getaway is nestled in the woods just 'north of the highway.' Five minutes from the village of East Hampton and five minutes from the bay beaches, the location is just a drive away from the action. And with a price tag of $63,000, the ladies love the under-budget gem! But will they feel too far removed from the downtown excitement? For more information on this property visit homeaway.com.
