Apparently, vacationing on a yacht in St. Tropez wasn't lavish enough for music power couple Jay-Z and Beyoncé. Now that they have the adorable 6-month old princess Blue Ivy in tow, they've decided to upgrade.

In August, Mr. and Mrs. Shawn Carter will rent a 31,000-square-foot estate in the Hamptons for $400,000, according to the New York Post. The house's monthly rent is $128,000 higher than the 2010 average sales price of a U.S. home.

The $43.5 million dollar abode comes with ample amenities — rock-climbing wall, recording studio, two-lane bowling alley, virtual golf and skateboard half-pipe.

The 60-foot heated pool is equipped with an underwater stereo system. It also has a gym, spa, combo basketball, racquetball and squash court, and garage that can store eight cars.

The master bedroom suite is 2,800-square-feet, bigger than most homes. And while the 11-acre property is large enough to accommodate guests, the lot includes a separate two-bedroom apartment.

Built by developer Joe Farrell, the Bridgehampton mansion located on Halsey Lane is also known as Sandcastle. A name like Sandcastle is quite fitting for baby Carter.

Jay-Z has been visiting The Hamptons for no less than 10 years. He's attended parties hosted by the likes of Sean "Diddy" Combs and pals, and celeb couple Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow, who own homes in the exclusive section of Long Island, New York.
