The Hamptons are a popular Private Flight destination
and nothing is more synonymous to a New York summer than going “out east”. While you can take a painfully long, traffic-ridden car ride and endlessly stopping train, the right way to travel to The Hamptons is via your very own private charter. No delays, direct to your destination, and not one minute of your precious weekend wasted. We sat down with the expert of experts for The Hamptons, KD Hamptons on her personal selections to make your summer the hottest it can be.
Most Luxurious Hotel Suite
When in The Hamptons, you’ll want to stay in a house, not a hotel. The luxurious and massive properties offer space for all your friends and family who follow you out for the weekend. Hands down the most sought after house to rent is La Dune, located on Gin Lane in Southampton. La Dune is actually two massive houses on an expanse of green lawn, each with swimming pools and a total of 22 bedrooms. Enjoy the pristine white decor, screening room, game room and tennis court. The shingled facades give a beach cottage feel…only much, much larger. All for a going price of around $1M a month.
Hardest to Get Table
The new Le Bilboquet outpost. The European and very chic restaurant known in NYC, Dallas and Atlanta came to the quiet beach town of Sag Harbor as of Memorial Day 2017. Partners include Ron Perelman and Eric Clapton. Expect a wait, lots of celebrity-sightings and the famed Cajun chicken if anything like its sister locations.
Exclusive Experience Money CAN Buy
Now that you have 22 bedrooms divided between two estates, you have plenty of room for your guestlist. All you just have to plan what to do is figure out how to feed them all. This is where Hamptons Aristocrat comes in. The upscale catering company serves all of The Hamptons and offers a variety of services. Whether you want to stock your fridges with fresh, organic produce, throw a dinner party, or plan a black tie wedding, Hamptons Aristocrat is all you need. They are renowned for intimate to extravagant, all farm to table and organic. For the ultimate BBQ, hire them to cater a beach fete at sunset.
