pool and exterior of a beautiful Hamptons Airbnb

Make no mistake, we love summer in the Hamptons — the themed lawn parties and gardens bursting with hydrangea, the dock and dines, and chic wineries. But if you’re looking for smaller crowds, pet-friendly beaches, Airbnbs at unbelievable rates, visit The Hamptons in the off-season. The accommodation options are just as elegant and worthy of a magazine cover as they are in July and August — from classic New England-style cottages with perfectly manicured gardens to sleek, modern beach houses with pools and hot tubs. Many feature designer-approved coastal decor, spacious backyards, and amenities such as Peloton bikes, fireplaces, and outdoor showers to make your stay worthy of a five-star hotel.

We love the chic, coastal-white vibe of this designer home, set on a quiet lane in Southampton. The three-bedroom, two-bath cottage comes with lush gardens, a heated saltwater pool (closes September), and outdoor shower and dining area. Added bonus: this home is pet friendly and close to beaches.

East Hampton Ranch

Private beach access is a draw (yes, even off-season) of this elegant, four-bedroom, 2.5-bath East Hampton bungalow. The pool, too, is stunning (although it closes in September). The bungalow comes with hardwood floors, modern light fixtures throughout, and a cooling color palette of blues and grays. We also love the clawfoot tub in the marbled bathroom.

Sun-Drenched Sag Harbor Home

Bike to Havens Beach, explore Sag Harbor’s shops, restaurants and bars, then return to this sun drenched, renovated home. Bright, airy, and deliciously spacious, we love the soothing, clean color palette with pops of color.

Built in the 1940s, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom original fisherman’s cottage is one of the last remaining at Montauk’s secluded Hither Hills Beach. We love the nautical curation and Old Man and the Sea vibe. There is also a separate artist studio on the property.

Elegantly designed, this mid-century modern home offers clean lines, open spaces, and expansive windows. Set on two  acres overlooking lush rolling lawns, the house features an open great room with high ceilings, exposed beams, a wall of glass, and a custom fireplace with a massive hearth.  There is even a professional gym (with weight rack and Peloton), and a charcoal water filtration system that delivers Fiji-level purified drinking water out of every tap.
