If you’re staying in the Hamptons for a month, the best way to go is the Sandcastle estate in Bridgehampton, New York.

With 31,000 square feet of insane amenities – like a movie theater, bowling alley, walk-in refrigerator, wine room, climbing wall, basketball court, private gym, and spa – it’s highly unlikely you could ever get bored.

All that doesn’t come cheap, however: the mansion is listed for rental at the cost of $1 million a month, or $500,000 for a shorter term.

It was built by legendary Hamptons home builder Joe Farrell, and was offered for sale as recently as 2013, according to the Real Deal. Though Farrell received his $43.5 million ask, he ultimately decided not to sell the house so that his family could make use of it, which he told The New York Post was a “very tough decision.”

It regularly draws celebrity renters, including Jay Z and Beyonce, who reportedly paid $400,000 to stay in the house for a month in 2012.

The bowling alley is a nice perk if you’re into that sort of thing.

The lavish closets and dressing rooms take up much of that space.

The master bathroom looks more like a ballroom than a place to bathe.

There are 12 bedrooms in total.
