sort areas outside of Newport where
truly fabulous rental accommodations
can be found. For $60,000, from
Memorial to Labor Day, you can be
master or mistress of a house with
more than 10 bedroom suites, tennis
court , pool , Jacuzzi , gym, and ser-
vants' quarters, according to Eva Stern
of Sea Realty. (The rental may not in-
clude utilities.)
Easthampton is considered very art-
sy and elite, though the old money is
dying out. It was once a community
restricted to WASPs but is no longer.
Perhaps because of its attraction for
New York artists, Easthampton also
features the state of the art in beach
house architecture, particularly as re-
cently available federal flood insur-
ance has opened up new coastal low-
lands for building.
Easthampton can be less expensive
than Southampton because the farther
out on Long Island (and away from
New York City) you travel, supposed-
ly the less desirable the location.
Plan to budget $20,000 for the sea-
son for a median rental , although a
good time can be had for $7,000 to
$12,000, again, if properties are avail-
able.
Closer to Manhattan, but isolated
just the same, is Fire Island, which can
only be reached by ferry in the sum-
mer. Fire Island has no roads , but lots
of sidewalks to bicycle on. It's pri-
marily a summer place; in the winter
a mere 1,500 live there, in the summer
the population swells to 30,000. Ren-
tals are limited and fairly expensive.
There aren't any lavish estates, but
plenty of cedar-shingled bungalows
on the beach. The three most exclu-
sive areas are Salt Air, Sea View and
Point of Woods.
One Fire Island homeowner who
wishes to remain anonymous pur-
chased his four-bedroom house in
Ocean Beach, the center of activity on
the island, for $17,000 in 1962. He
now rents it out for $13,000 a season
(May 15 through Oct. 1). Rentals can
approach the mid-20s.
CAPE COD
Compared to Southampton, the
most exclusive rentals on Cape Cod
are a steal. Wianno, in the village of
Osterville, and its even more exclusive
neighbor, Oyster Harbors, offer a few
fabulous oceanside homes for $25,000
for the season, according to a realtor
who lives in that community.
Bill Agee and Mary Cunningham
recently paid $1.9 million for.
hideaway in Oyster Harbors, stte o
the Dupont family's estate. The guard
at the entrance to Oyster Harbors alsO
screens visitors to Gen. James Gavin,
and the Joe Lilly family.
At Oyster Harbors, an oceanfront
estate, not terribly elaborate, but turn·
of-the-century with eight bedrooms.
occasionally can be rented for $15,000
-If you have a longstanding
ship with the landlord. Othervllse
$25,000 is more the rule for a bous.e
of equal size fronting on the Saputt
River.
Nearby Wianno offers swimming
Nantucket Sound, where the Gul
Stream provides water
unheard of north of the Carolinas-tO
the 70s in August . An oceanside beach
house, again for $25 ,000 for the sea·
son, on exclusive Seaview A venue
probably would be unchanged iO
decor over the last 40 years, providing
a touch of old-time fantasy or nostal·
gia, depending on your perspective·
Beaches in the area are restricted tO
