Spent two nights there this month (July 2014), and as before I was astounded by the friendly service and incredible cleanliness. I was there for a wedding that took place in their beautiful gardens with the reception on the tennis court. Even with over 150 people at the wedding, the spirit of courtesy and efficiency by Kevin and Eileen Bowen,... More

I'm really surprised by all the positive comments about Bowen's by the Bays. Our experience was the exact opposite. We rented one of the two bedroom cottages for the weekend. The grounds were decent so we had high hopes for the cottage. What a shocker when we walked in and the smell of mold was so overwhelming that we immediately... More

While we appreciate this guest taking the time to make his feelings known, we were not made aware of his dissatisfaction or given the opportunity to make him happy. We could have either changed accommodations for him, or refunded his deposit. There are certain inaccuracies. First, I never made that comment. We had an extensive discussion, and I explained that...

My wife and I stayed in one of the cottages with our 2yo daughter for 2 nights over Memorial Day weekend. We had a great experience and would definitely go back. The cottage itself was perfect. It was cozy and clean inside and out. The cottage has a screened in porch area with a picnic table and though we did... More

This is the best place to stay for a absolute dreamy sleep and a truly beautiful surrounding property! Our cottage was very clean and spacious, with all the comforts of home!

Stayed here in August for 3 nights en route to New York. Easy to find , lovely location . Even though it is by the main road once inside it is very quiet and peaceful. My six year old loved the cowboy themed room. Rooms open onto lovely garden and a stroll to the pool. Owners very courteous and nice... More

This was our first time staying at Bowen's by the Bays and we were not disappointed. Eileen was very gracious and helpful. She recommended several restaurants, even one where we could bring our dog to sit on the deck. Our cottage was very clean, spacious and had so many windows, which was great to let the fresh 'country' air in.... More

Located in the Hamptons community with the most waterfront and convenient to water sports, beach visits and many fine restaurants, this delightful place is clean, quite, attractive, and very affordable. A great place for a family week-end or a place to stay when visiting friends or relatives in the area. This is a true asset to the entire Hamptons community.
