House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 14) On the Beach
About Shelby Coleman
This is our 2nd home, where we spend more than half of every year. Come and enjoy the rarified air of the Hamptons. This isn't a mansion, its a really nice beach house. No precious antiques to break. Bring the kids. Bring the dog. Relax and enjoy.
Shelby Coleman purchased this House in 1973
Why Shelby Coleman chose Southampton
The house is located ON THE BEACH as well as across the street from Shinnecock Bay. Water views all around. There is a special, magical feel to this house. We're also one of the few pet friendly homes in Southampton. Pet's of any size welcome!
What makes this House unique
Walk right onto the beach or cross the road to beautiful Shinnecock Bay. The light that streams into the dining room and living room at sunset defies description. Its truly magical. A ten minute drive to famous downtown Southampton. 90 minutes from NYC. Very few homes are for rent on the beach in the Hamptons. Come and enjoy the rarified air of the Hamptons.

Perfectly Lovely, Perfect Owner
"12" women could not have been happier. Shelby's home was perfect for us. Beautiful view of the ocean from the kitchen and deck, a short walk to the ocean from the house. We walked every night on the beach to see the sunset. Cooper's beach is also close. The bedrooms and beds were comfortable. The house looked exactly like the pictures. The hot tub is large, we used it every night, the pool is large and wonderful too. Anything we needed for our stay was there. Shelby went above and beyond and above and beyond again to make sure our stay was perfect. Southampton is a good location in the Hamptons also, main street shopping and several good restaurants. We toured all the Hampton towns from there. I would recommend this house to anyone wanting to see the Hamptons and they want to be on the ocean! Most of us were from the midwest so the ocean view and ocean front was an absolute. I'd go back tomorrow.
Private beach paradise!
We rented the property for the last two weeks of August 2014. It seemed like the pine trees were whispering a welcome to us as we drove down the driveway, past the tennis court to our rented beach paradise! The bedrooms were lovely, comfortable and fully appointed. The owner, Shelby, obviously tended to every detail toward making our stay a happy one! There were plush towels for bath and pool, sitting areas upstairs and down, comfortable beds and upstairs the sitting area was well thought out and ultra comfy! Kids of all ages (mine are all grown) love this place -- there is plenty to do from swimming, tennis, beach going, TV (movies included), and Wii games galore. We enjoyed sitting poolside books in hand, lulled by the sound of waves hitting the beach and the trees stirring in the breeze. The views were stunning -- ocean from the back of the house and bay from the front. It couldn't get any better than this!! The garden beside the pool is beautifully planted along with the potted plants and hanging blooms along the upper and lower deck including an herb garden ready for the picking! From a cook's point of view (mine!) the kitchen was the best room in the house! It had a GLORIOUS view of the ocean and it was fully appointed with Le Creuset pans and a complete china set and every gadget a cook might need! The owner clearly loves this house and as guests, we did too! She was responsive to our every request or question and provided us with special extras we were not expecting! Our group of 5 and two golden retrievers would very, very happily return next summer!!
There were 10 of us - 5 couples plus a baby, and 2 dogs. The house was clean and had everything we needed (great heated pool, towels, games, etc) and finally, it is in an incredible location (literally steps from the beach). We could not have asked for a better place for a weekend
The owner is responsive to all questions and super nice. I would recommend this house to anyone, and I look forward to coming back in the future
Thank you so much, it is my pleasure to have families and animals enjoy the property. Come back soon and often!
Memorial Day weekend
We spent a great weekend in this house. The owner was lovely and very nice to deal with and we loved the views and the scenery. Stress free vacation! Thank you
Thanks Alex, I just saw this. Thanks for everything. You were lovely tenants. Shelby
A Magnificent Thanksgiving
I'm so pleased to be given the opportunity to share our Thanksgiving 2012 holiday experience in this most beautiful beachfront home. Being from Miami originally, and now spending a large part of the year in New York City, we were looking to celebrate the holiday near the beach, which we miss very much. We have rented from VRBO in the past with wonderful results. However, this sojourn was truly remarkable. After searching various locales, this home met all of our criteria. I was keeping my fingers crossed that it would be available for Thanksgiving. From the moment the owner and I began e-mailing it was readily apparent to me that this was a truly special person and home. There was not one thing that was overlooked, the attention to detail was amazing. Pictures do speak a thousand words that is true; but that would not be enough to adequately describe the breathtaking beauty of the location, the home and its welcoming charm. Here are just some of the most memorable things the home offered to my family (3 grown children, a grandaughter, my husband and our dog): utmost tranquility and seclusion, a dream kitchen with a National Geographic view of the ocean, fabulous stove, every cooking tool, beautiful fireplace, super duper washer and dryer, sunshine streaming through every window, picture perfect views of the Atlantic and the bay from the master bedroom, as clean as I keep my own home, beautifully decorated, furnished and appointed in a true beach feel, so 'user friendly' to all ages (dogs included!) with tile floors and cushy, cushy couches, decking and paths that made traversing the property so easy, a great tennis court (even in 38 degree weather), a private beach adjacent to the pool area perfect for a two and a half year old to play with grandma and grandpa while her parents watched from the kitchen, natural foliage galore, the sound of the ocean and the wind, the beachfront just over the gorgeous dunes right at the back door and the lovely ride along the road to get to the house. I literally could go on and on. This was beyond perfect for my family. And, I haven't even begun to sing the praises of the remarkably attentive owner who was just a joy to deal with before, during, and after our stay. She truly made our experience that much more memorable. We would not hesitate an instant when thinking of staying there again. Which, we began to speak about on our drive home!
AMAZING LOCATION, AMAZING HOUSE, AMAZING OWNER - how can you say no?!
My husband and I were planning a last minute trip to Hamptons in September, and we thankfully came across this listing. pictures don't do it justice. literally the perfect house in the BEST location in the hamptons - right on the beach with every single amenity possible, and it just feels like home. You want 8 rafts for the pool (heated to feel like a warm bathtub)? no problem. enough beach towels to cover the entire section of the beach behind the house (and this is not a small beach by ANY means)? done. Apple TV? OK! Wii with guitar hero and four guitars? Sure! Gourmet kitchen with every imaginable cooking/baking need and amazing appliances? Check! I could go on and on . . .
On top of all this, the owner is an incredible woman. We took our 2 year old with us for our trip, and she left toys to play with. She has a notebook in the house with every detail covered - from how to use the washer/dryer (or spaceship as she likes to call it) to the TV channel listings to the best restaurants in the area to the neighbors phone numbers in case of emergency. No stone left unturned! And she would always check in on us to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. HOW COULD WE NOT?!!? Our daughter had so much fun, that if you ask her where she is from, she says 'hamptons.' We will definitely be returning to this rental next summer!!
