Loved our Time in Montauk!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house for our family, which included a newborn, 5 adults, and a golden retriever. Great location as it's very secluded on a dead end street surrounded by trees in the very desirable Ditch Plains neighborhood and only a 5-10 minute walk to the beach. House had all the necessary amenities we would need including sheets, towels, WiFi, Cable, washer/dryer etc. and impressed by the quality. Needing to access the downstairs bedroom from outside was not a big deal at all, although we would not recommend it for young children. If you are looking for brand new, high end accommodations, this houses isn't for you, nor are they common for Montauk.

Our golden retriever loved spending time in the big yard and swimming in the ocean and thrilled we were able to bring her along. Grilled out about every night and watched the sunset from the deck.

The owner, Chris, was far from intrusive as another review mentioned, but did check in with us once to ensure there were no problems with our stay and was responsive over emails to a few minor questions we had. Definitely would rent again if we make it back to Montauk.

Heaven in Montauk

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. We loved everything from the beautiful white washed bedrooms to the wide open living area to wonderful porch set up. Chris was an awesome host who gave us numerous dining recommendations. The house also comes equipped with beach cruisers so you can easily ride to the beach. On top of everything, we were routinely greeted with deer in the front yard feasting on fallen apples from the plentiful apple trees in the front yard.

We loved the private setting of the house--wonderful breezes on the decks and a new sun umbrella arrived just in time for our stay. The interior was perfectly suited for us -- extremely clean and lots of light. The central air conditioning was a big plus, even though we had an amazing week of weather. The owner, Chris, was very responsive to our requests.

The driveway & yard are well landscaped, the decor very tasteful , comfortable bed and has all the anemities you would want; wifi, cable, Apple TV, candles, fireplace & my favorite, the outside shower! I love the house & would hope to visit again in the future.

The owner was intrusive. He visited us 4 times in a 3 night stay.

The curtains in the bedroom (there are none in the living space) are thin and white. Bring an eye mask if you want to sleep past dawn.

The master bedroom has a separate entrance and not linked to the rest of the house, except using the deck entrance to the main part of the house. Also, there were many centipides and spiders in the basement bedroom (master bedroom).

The cruisers are very rusty and have little air in their tires.

I could put all of that aside for a short vacation rental but he was in contact with me so often that I just couldn't oversee it.

Owner's Response: Kathryn, I am sorry that you are unhappy. As my reviews bear out , everyone seems to leave my homes happy- even if they first arrive unhappy. (See also reviews on my other property VRBO 427391). Your review shows that you cannot please everyone, though I try very hard to do just that. It is quite odd that you interpret my visits as intrusive when they were primarily due to requests from your co-guests- my first visit was merely to welcome your co-guests who arrived before you and make sure they had everything they needed, as I normally do and is much appreciated by ALL of of my prior guests, the next visit was because your co-guest could not get on the WIFI and texted me to come over, which I did promptly. Upon coming over I left behind a Liability Waiver for the bikes and asked that it be signed by you when you arrive and that I would pick it up. (Had you signed this waiver prior to your arrival, as I had requested, it would not have necessitated this extra trip.) This all occurred within hours of your party checking in on day 1. Three days later I came by to let you know that you were welcome to check out late. I think most people would find this to be accommodative rather than intrusive. As to your other comments: the Queen Suite is a mere three steps down and is a magnificent suite that everyone else has fully appreciated. It is tastefully decorated, offers privacy, has a great bathroom and living space, and gets great natural light. I am sorry about your encounter with an insect, or two, but you must realize Montauk is still the country. However, to err on the side of caution I hired a professional exterminator to limit the possibility that one of these "true natives" gets into the house again. As for the "curtains", as you describe them, you should know that they are not curtains but designer Hunter Douglas, 3% Open, UV protected, Solar Shades. All of the fashion and photographer clients that have stayed at my place appreciate them and all the other aesthetics that make my home quite special. Moreover, I would never put a shade on the slider that would block the tremendous private view. Yes, the perfectly functional bikes have a bit of handlebar rust but that is because we live 3 blocks from the beach and they are "BEACH CRUISERS"- meaning they are ridden to, and on, the beach. The tires were inflated perfectly for beach cruisers- I checked them. Once again, I am truly sorry you left unhappy because that is last thing I want for any of my guests.
