Overview

About the property

Secluded 1+ Acre. 4 Bedroom, 2 Bath With Outdoor shower

Spend a magical Fall or Winter weekend at this fantastic house that sits just steps away from its own private beach. Our house is fantastic in the fall and winter, the colors are gorgeous and you'll feel like you are floating on the water that surrounds the bright, open living area while staying warm next to the large stone fireplace. The master bedroom has a queen bed, private bath and entrance from the deck with ample closet space. The two back bedrooms each with queen beds have beautiful light and a chic, simple decor. The children's bedroom has a bunkbed with a trundle. The brand new kitchen features all new appliances: Viking stove, fridge, Miehle dishwasher and a breakfast bar. Serve dinner in the dining room area or on the 10' large custom-made outdoor table with the ocean lake right there or on the deck, spend days reading on the secluded beach or take a nap on the floating swimming platform. Or just enjoy the sounds of lapping waves from the hammock on the deck that always catches a westerly breeze coming off the lake--no bugs! Washer and dryer, outdoor shower, and Le Creuset cookware as well.

It's perfect for families--you'll have plenty to do with a dinghy, 2 paddle boards, 2 surfboards, 3 kayaks, 3 bikes, a swimming platform an outdoor shower and plenty of lawn for football games or tetherball. Take the paddle boards and kayaks across the lake for lunch at Gosman's or explore the sealife along the shore. The beach's shallow water is great for children. For dinner just walk down the beach at sunset to Rick's Crabby Cowboy or the Fish Bar. Charter a boat with Captain Jimmy George at the marina down the beach and catch Striped Bass which you can eat all week long. Gin Beach, Montauk's prettiest beach is just down the road and Ditch Plains, the best surfing beach is just 2.5 miles away. Your private beach is set up with umbrellas, beach loungers and side tables. Build a fire in the beach fire pit and cook hotdogs and s'mores as the sun goes down. Go to sleep with the sound of the water lapping at the shore. It's really dream-like.

About brandon holley

We are a family of three. Mom is a long-time fashion editor and Dad is a full-time musician. We have a six-year-old son. We live in Brooklyn and Montauk.

brandon holley purchased this house in 2013

Why brandon holley chose Hamptons

We've been spending summers in Montauk for 17 years when we found this magical place and decided we had to have it. The house, situated steps from the water, is filled with light and sparkling reflections of water on the walls. Sunsets are amazing. The constant gentle breeze means no mosquitoes. You'll feel like you are floating on the water here.

What makes this house unique

Very private. You enter down a long driveway and into an open cleared yard with the water right there. Your family will be quite content to spend the most time here, with fishing, swimming, kayaking, paddleboarding and hammocks in the shade. At night you fall asleep to the waves lapping the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Brandon your house was perfect thank you so much for allowing us to stay. The trip was incredible we caught a 160lb thresher shark!



We all really enjoyed our stay and my mom and girlfriend are already asking me if you have available dates later in august. If we come back to Montauk next year and if you would have us we would love to come back. Can't thank you enough for allowing us to stay in your home you made this vacation the best one yet.

Montauk is a magical mix of an old fishing village and one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world with great restaurants, shopping and entertainment. You can charter a deep sea fishing boat that's docked within walking distance from the house and catch huge striped bass, go hiking, sailing, surfing, eat amazing food from Manhattan's best chefs who've opened restaurants here in the past few years or discover pristine beaches with no one around. Make Montauk what you want: private and isolated with lots of empty beaches: catch your own dinner and grill it at home or go out and eat, drink and dance all night. It's great for families with lots of swimming (surf beaches or gentle beaches, and lakes with sailing and paddle boarding). There's mini golf, a famous golf course, tennis, horseback riding, mountain biking on incredible trails, fishing--everything you could want for an amazing family vacation.

My personal favorites are Rick's Crabby Cowboy which is a short walk down the beach for an overstuffed lobster roll. Gin Beach is the prettiest beach in Montauk and is just a quarter mile down the road. Kayak across Lake Montauk to Gosman's in just a few minutes and eat dinner there. Hike the many trails that start just across the road or go to Ditch and eat at Ditch Witch and surf and boogie board. For a romantic dinner go to the Crow's Nest for a fantastic dinner at sunset--the ambitious can kayak there from the house. Book a fishing trip with Captain Jimmy George who docks at Rick's Crabby Cowboy early in your trip and catch enough striped bass to feed your entire group for one week. A good day trip is to take the bikes to Shelter Island and have lunch.

Pure montauk without the bling and bother of a busy life. A great escape truly at The End.

  • 5 of 5

On Lake Montauk! As if you were on an island. Fishing marina, private airport and great seafood a short walk along the shore.

Clean, spacious and perfectly suited to the beachfront location where the clams of the day transform the pasta to simple pleasures never to be duplicated at home.

Our own watercraft to play with and a swim platform make the safe tidal waters fun to be in.

We will be going back to the fond memories and making new ones at this authentic Montauk house.

My new favorite place in Montauk

  • 5 of 5

The home is absolutely beautiful, it's the perfect relaxing atmosphere for vacations. Brandon was helpful and a pleasure to meet. I've been going to Montauk for the last 5 years and this was the best trip yet. The home is clean and well maintained, the perfect secluded get away. I highly recommend staying here, if your between places look no further, send Brandon an email now and relax knowing you will have an amazing place to stay while you enjoy all Montauk has to offer.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

If Montauk is your scene it's a great place to stay for the money (everything is over priced out there, not much you can do about that). The house is decorated well, beds are comfortable, the views are amazing, the owner Brandon is a sweetheart.

I'd disregard any negative reviews, not sure what they were on... I'm pretty high matinence person my self and I loved it.

Couple cons but not deal breakers... Kitchen utensils, kitchen knives... are a bit lacking. Not many seasonings, olive oil, pam. No shampoo and conditioner they should operate this a bit more like a hotel for what you pay.

Largest con is the have a charcoal grill... They could charge a couple dollars extra a night for the summer to get a nice one out there.

Best 4 days. Charming waterfront home in Montauk, can't wait to go back.

  • 5 of 5

Brandon's montauk home was a dream. We were there for 4 nights, and barely left the property. Brandon was a great host, super quick response rate, and very welcoming.

The decor was perfect, felt like an Anthropologie lookbook. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook all 4 days of our stay. Waking up and going on the paddle boards and kayaks every morning was my favorite part of the house. Can't wait to go back!!
