A family from the midwest dropped an eye-popping $US300,000 to rent a mansion in Bridgehampton for a single week this summer, The New York Post reports.

That’s a new Hamptons rental record, according to the post.

The home, dubbed the “Sandcastle” in Bridgehampton, has made headlines before. Jay-Z and BeyoncĂ© reportedly spent $US400,000 to rent it for a month in August 2012.

The Sandcastle was built by well-known Hamptons homebuilder Joe Farrell, and has a movie theatre, bowling alley, walk-in refrigerator, wine room, climbing wall, basketball court, private gym, and spa.

Still, $US300,000 is a ton of money for a week’s vacation. Corcoran has the rental listing.

The Sandcastle sits on 11.5-acres on swanky Halsey Lane in Bridgehampton.

It has about 31,000 square feet of living space.

Here's the formal living room -- complete with an intricate ceiling design and fluffy pillows.

And a fireplace.

The kitchen is huge.

The dining room is nearby.

The family room is eye-catching.

The bowling alley is a nice perk.

As is the 'Air Lounge' -- a children's entertainment center with virtual golf, a half-pipe, and a rock climbing wall.

Of course, there's a movie theatre.

As well as a gym and basketball court.

We're not sure why one room needs so many television screens.
