Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed the perfect beach vacation while staying at this lovely home. The house was perfectly set up with outdoor space in the front and back yard, an outdoor shower, beach supplies and an easy walk to Ditch Plains. The house is clean, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Highly recommended!

The house was beyond our expectation! It suited our family perfectly. It was impeccably clean and the owners left instructions where needed on how to operate things. We loved it and would highly recommend this vacation home.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Every single thing about our vacation rental was perfect. Communication with the owners was awesome, as they were always easy to get a hold of and so helpful and accommodating. Check-in was a breeze and upon walking in we realized that the beautiful pictures we saw online didn't even do the house justice. Everything about the house was perfect... a super clean, beachy house that's more spacious than we had anticipated. Our son loved staying here. The kind owners really made it so easy to bring youngsters along on this week long vacation. It truly was the perfect family getaway, thanks to this beautiful house and the awesome owners. The house is perfectly situated, just a walk from Ditch Plains beach, and had everything we needed for an awesome vacation. We will definitely be back and are already planning next year's visit!

Perfect Montauk Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect vacation for my family. We felt as if we were at home, not just a rental. We felt welcome by the owner right from the start, and they were always available and willing to help in any way they could. The home was beautiful, kitchen and bathrooms all updated and immaculate. Beds and linens were all just as beautiful and comfortable. The location was perfect, quiet and just a few minute walk to a great beach. Would highly recommend it.

About Alexandra

We custom built our house. We saw this plot of land for sale many moons ago, driving around with Bear, our dog, in a little rental car from NYC. For my husband, who spent his childhood summers growing up on Martha's Vineyard, we dreamed of a little place where we could walk (not drive) to the beach everyday. So when we saw this land, we knew it would be perfect for us because of it's close proximity to the beach, but we like how nestled off from the main crowds it is.

It took three long years before we were granted building permits, there were a lot of obstacles to overcome due to strict zoning & limitations put on the land (all which squashed the original designs). But we took this time to blueprint again & re-designed every square inch of (what is now) the house . Working within only a small amount of given sq. footage, we kept the design open with a floor plan that makes best use of the space and their intended uses.

We're actually renovating again, since the house is now 13 years old, we've put in new bathrooms (2017/18) & will be re-doing the kitchen.

Alexandra purchased this house in 2003

Why Alexandra chose Montauk

Montauk is distinctive; unlike any other area in the Hamptons. With beautiful, unspoiled beaches, it's raw beauty, hiking trails and land preservation make it feel 'untouched' even now. It's a vacation destination for families, fishermen, surf casters and nature lovers. Surrounded by water, Montauk has that " island" feel but without a ferry schedule! The location we live in is truly spectacular. The lull of the ocean, the sea breezes, the brilliant sky, the energy of Ditch ...thanks to the location, four large skylights & well placed windows this house captures all that perfectly!

What makes this house unique

HOMEOWNER owned home. Our home is special to us, bringing our family a great deal of joy... an often needed respite from all the hustle and bustle of city life. We enjoy renting it out when we are not enjoying it ourselves.


Car: recommended

Montauk, New York, is a village at the east end of the Long Island peninsula. It’s known for its beaches, like Ditch Plains, with its strong Atlantic surf. At the peninsula’s tip, Montauk Point State Park is home to the 1796 Montauk Point Lighthouse. A museum in the keeper’s house displays historical documents signed by George Washington. Camp Hero State Park, once a military base, has WWII bunkers and a radar tower. THINGS TO DO: take surfing or tennis lessons, go parasailing, sail boating or charter fishing, whale and seal watching. Outdoor markets &/or fairs, movies, music on the village green most weeks in the Summer. Treat yourself to a massage &/or spa trip, visit the Salt Cave for restoration. Play golf (mini Putt Putt or Adult at the Montauk Downs). Hiking & walking trails abound in our state parks. Our local library has many fun, weekly activities for children. There are plentiful bars & restaurants to choose from.
