About Flavio Lichtenthal
We have two teenage sons and used to live in NYC, but now we live in Massachussetts.
Flavio Lichtenthal purchased this Condo in 1980
Why Flavio Lichtenthal chose Montauk
We have always loved driving to the tip of Long Island (or taking the ferries from CT) and spending time out in Montauk, a perfect blend of getting away while still being in the thick of it! It's A BEAUTIFUL PLACE, part of the Hamptons, but feels much calmer, real and more open and expansive.
What makes this Condo unique
The Apartment is simple, bright, and clean... You slide the door and see the ocean...We sleep in the bedroom, and the kids in the living room. We have a nice TV but otherwise is pretty lo-fi, so we really feel like we are on vacation.

Comfortable condo in the perfect location!
We had the best time at Flavio's condo! It couldn't be in a more perfect location - right across the street and a short walk into town. The condo is clean, cute and has everything you need for a beach getaway. Flavio is such a pleasure to work with, and he was always very responsive and accommodating. We will definitely be back!

Flavio was so pleasant to work with and he was very responsive and accommodating. We will definitely be back!!
Rented the condo for a week in late June and couldn't ask for a better set up! Super short walk to beach, pool right outside the condo, barbecue grills we used every day. We brought bikes and could get into town in under 5 min!
Condo itself was bigger than we had expected, super clean, comfortable bed. Sleeper couches also very comfortable.
Flavio was super responsive and answered all questions immediately.
Had a blast and hoping to make it back in September!
Our family of 4 frequently rents when we travel to Montauk, and we were disappointed by the conditions of this particular unit. Although the owner is a nice person, we are too and we deserved better! Upon our arrival the unit was small for a family of 4, and for a stay of 2 weeks. The throw rug was dirty and kept pilling (should be tossed). The a/c was not working efficiently, and the room - especially the bedroom would get very warm during the night. There were sugar ants everywhere, and you couldn't leave anything out on the kitchen countertops.There was a broken hinge on one of the cabinets, and a broken ladle. We needed a microwave to cook, and quickly heat things up with - there was none. The daybeds really need additional cushioning for sleeping (byo...sleeping bags or air mattresses). We wanted to open the doors and have cross ventilation to feel the ocean breezes, but there was no screen on the front door. We tried sitting outside, but to our dismay many people surrounding us were smokers. The smoke would make its way over to our unit, and we would have to go inside & shut the doors. One of our daughter's suffers from asthma, and I am allergic to tobacco so this aspect was genuinely frustrating. We discovered that smoking is allowed at the pool even though the pool rules say otherwise - very unhealthy! The Direct TV was horrible - hardly any family channels to access (Discovery, Nat.Geo., Animal Planet, or any local news like News 12). The sound on the tv kept going off as well. Our smartphones were sluggish, and had difficulty with Internet and other sites. The water temperature inside the shower became cold at times (we don't take long showers). As stated before, the owner is nice but needs to overhaul his unit, and update it to make it nicer, cleaner & better for future renters! The pool, view and proximity to the beautiful Atlantic Ocean was nice, but it didn't make up for the unit's poor condition. We will never stay here again.
We are truly sorry our Guest had such a disappointing experience, our hope is always that everyone has an amazing time at the Unit and in Montauk.
We had thirteen guests at the Unit so far this Summer, four returning from previous years, and from the remaining nine, six have already inquired about availability for next Summer.
None of our guests this year, nor the previews three years we've been renting the unit have ever complained or mentioned having trouble with the Cable TV, ants, the A/C, the Hot Water, cleanliness, or the Daybeds not being comfortable.
Once in the past, the Hot Water for the unit boiler needed replacing and it was done so the next day after being reported to us.
The size of the Unit is no secret, and a list of amenities is readily available, including the lack of a microwave. I'm always reachable to answer any questions about the unit at all times prior and after rental so all is very clear and there are no surprises.
Unfortunately, yes, there are smokers out there but there is little we can do to control that situation. Had the guest mentioned the asthma condition and concern to me I would have gladly commented that there could be a possibility of smokers in the neighboring units. It is not a smoke-free Complex, nor is it advertised as such.
Most commonly we are complimented and thanked for offering such a clean, straightforward, comfortable, simple, and wonderful small unit by the ocean at such a reasonable rate.
When I received an e-mail from the Guest on their second day, listing all her grievances with the Unit, I offered not only to buy a microwave but also a full refund for any unused time should they choose to leave. They didn't take me up on either offer and stayed the full two weeks.
I wish the renters the best of luck and hope they find a better fit next time around, as I know how hard we all work all year to have a well deserved great vacation. I recommend renters always ask lots of questions of any VRBO about features and amenities that might be essential to them, as to ensure the best possible time and least misunderstandings. Thank you.
We have rented many properties in Montauk in the past. We were very happy with this one. While small, the location is very beautiful. We sat on the deck and watched the sun rise and set every day. At night, the deer are all over the lawn and like to stare at you, which is pretty funny. Owner is so very nice and friendly. I believe the pictures showed a pullout sofa, but there isnt one, so if you have anyone coming to stay, bring a blowup mattress.
Wonderful quiet spot to relax
This condo was exactly what we were looking for - it was bright, comfortable and right across from a lovely beach. There was ample room for my husband and myself. The owner, Flavio, was extremely helpful whenever we had a question. We enjoyed a wonderful two week stay and hope to return again.
Montauk is a beautiful beach town with great dining options, lots of recreational activities, a lively nightlife and miles and miles of coastline and protected land for hiking, biking and other outdoor activities. The Atlantic Bluffs (one mile from the center of town) is located right across the street from the most beautiful stretch of ocean on Old Montauk Highway. The beach is never crowded as there is no public parking in this stretch. The Atlantic Bluffs also has a pool with a lifeguard, a large grass lawn for sports, a private and common deck overlooking the ocean, and outdoor hibachis for grilling.
