Every year we try to do something a bit different so that the fun is fresh and enjoyable. This year we decided to spend New Years Eve out east. Since we are city people , we were kicking around a few different ideas/places and settled on renting this lovely home in Montauk. We are a bit tired of the club scene and large parties and frankly wanted to take some time to recharge while having some close friends enjoy some fun together. Immediately after speaking to Karen, the owner I could tell these people were extremely straight forward, organized and conscientious of their home and the people they rent to. I quickly felt comfortable with the owners and their approach and therefore so did my friends The application process was quick and efficient. We were able to wire all funds directly so not taking much time out of our workdays. Owners quickly sent confirmations after each step of the way which I was not expecting but it was refreshing since our last rental felt like so much work...... This made us feel completely secure. When we arrived at the house and walked in, we immediately felt like "Gosh this is really beautiful". Location is pristine and home has above expectation amenities. We actually used the expresso machine and waffle maker for breakfast. The kitchen is stocked with all great Caphalon pots and pans.... not that I cooked myself but my girlfriends boyfriend David was in heaven. At one point he yelled out "they even have a Cuisinart". The house is decorated with fantastic taste and the flat screen T.V's and surround sound of course was the ultimate for the boys. The living area was super spacious and the fireplace was wonderful. It made for a great entertaining area where we enjoyed drinks and appetizers. The house is so much more than the pics suggest on line that we were really super excited. This never happens...... Bed linens and towels are top of the line and mattress' were really comfortable. These are NOT things that a rental usually provides so I feel its worth mentioning in this review. Waking up to 360 ocean views is something we were in awe of and will not forget. It was just amazing! It made us ambitious to walk to the Private Beach and take in the beauty around us. The town and the events at the lighthouse were really nice and cool. Eating at the Harvest was terrific and the spa Karen recommended was actually one of the best massages I have had in a while. Overall our stay was FABULOUS!
I would highly recommend.
