Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Only private beach access in Amagansett
  • Walking distance to shops and restaurants
  • Spacious outdoor pool and lounge area
  • Situated on four acres of nature preserve
  • Kitchens in every unit
  • Free Wi-Fi and parking
  • No guests under 14 permitted (a con for some)

Cons

  • Units range in modernity, furnishings, and decor
  • No restaurants on-site
  • No air conditioners (a pro for some!)

Bottom Line

This condo beach property has 32 units in a two-story, motel-style building, surrounded by flower boxes, and property high points include the outdoor pool, private beach access, and location within walking distance of the hamlet of Amagansett. All units come with a kitchen, though they range in modernity and decor (with some pushing the dated-and-dowdy limits, and others crossing the line of colorful contemporary). If private Amagansett beachfront is what you want, Ocean Dunes is your only bet.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

The quiet atmosphere of the property tends to attracts mature adults

The Ocean Dunes does not have a party atmosphere, and the staff enforces quiet times from 9 p.m. to 9 a.m., and no guests under 14 are permitted. So clearly, it's all about peace and relaxation here. The pool is the center of the property and is probably the most "bustling" spot, while a pleasant boardwalk leads through the nature preserve to get to the private beach -- the ultimate in Hamptons-style vacationing.

 Location

Located on scenic Bluff Road just a few minutes drive from the hamlet of Amagansett and 15 minutes from Montauk

Amagansett, a hamlet of East Hampton, is small, but its main strip contains shops, restaurants, and a weekly farmer’s market. Montauk and neighboring Hampton sites are a short drive away, so you’ll want a vehicle.

  • 70-minute drive to Islip Airport
  • 10-minute walk to the village of Amagansett
  • 5-minute drive to East Hampton
  • 15-minute drive to Montauk
  • 2-hour drive to Manhattan

 Rooms

This condo property currently offers 32 one- to two-bedroom units to the public

Each unit is owned separately, so decor and modernity range vastly. While one unit contains modern stainless steel appliances and is painted in bright stripes, others are outfitted in dated country decor; make sure to specify your priorities before booking. No units have air conditioners, but the windows open to allow for ocean breezes.

 Features

The expansive stretch of beach is the main draw here
