**NO SHORT TERM RENTALS LESS THAN 1 WEEK!**Enjoy gorgeous sunsets and ocean breezes on the huge wraparound deck of this spacious upside down house located 400 feet from Block Island Sound. Only 12 years old, this well appointed 3600 SF home has everything you are looking for: a gunite heated salt water pool, a short walking distance to the bay beach, restaurants and shopping, an open floor plan kitchen/great room w/ vaulted ceiling, gas cooking and grilling, 4 comfortable bedrooms with new bedding and linens included, an outdoor hot/cold shower, central a/c, a huge game room with wet bar and a large seating area, huge flat screen TV, new ping pong table, integrated Bose sound system with iPhone connectivity inside and outside the house, 2 huge beach stone fireplaces, 3 tumbled marble baths (all with tubs), and a cozy loft area for reading or playing games. Three separate outdoor deck areas: 1. Dining and Grilling area off the kitchen 2. covered porch area overlooking the pool area and 3. Sunset Cocktail hour on the west side of the house. Cable TV & wireless internet included. Five minute drive to Ocean beaches.

Property Location: The House is located in the Soundview section of Montauk which is within walking distance to the Harbor area, by Gosman's Dock. You can easily walk to a great beach on the Sound, at least 1/2 dozen great restaurants, many lovely shops, Ben & Jerry's, the Montauk ferry terminal, and several local watering holes. Walk to the ferry and watch local fisherman bring in the catch of the day or charter your own fishing boat. Take the ferry for a day trip to Block Island or hire a sailboat for a fabulous sunset. Plenty to do on foot or bike!

NOTE: Those of your considering homes that are 'walk to the ocean,' PLEASE keep in mind that we HIGHLY recommend swimming at beaches WITH TOWN LIFEGUARDS! Recent seasons produced some serious currents and tragedies did result. Even on beaches WITH Lifeguards, we witnessed plenty of rescues. Many private ocean beaches DO NOT HAVE LIFEGUARDS!!!

The Perfect Family Reunion Spot: The Tauk House is the perfect place for large family gatherings. The layout is ideal for 2 families sharing the house. Not only are there ample bedrooms but there are so many spots to relax; from several sitting areas indoors to several choice spots on the wrap around deck and front porch. Privacy, relaxation, bliss.

Perfect week in MTK

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to MTK for years and this home was perfect for our growing family. I booked this home for my husband, myself, our 2 year old, my parents, his parents and my sister-in law. The house was large enough to give everyone their space so that we could all enjoy being all together for a week. The house was beautiful, clean, updated, well appointed and comfortable. There was a child gate for the upper stairs. The beds and linens were good quality. The upper deck was a beautiful place to sit and relax. (There's a nice water view from the front) The pool is small but serves its purpose and was easy to heat for the baby to enjoy. The outdoor shower had an amazing rain shower-head and was one of the BEST showers I've ever used. The house is in a great location to walk to Gosmen's and to the non-ocean beaches. The block was peaceful and made for a very restful week. Kris was very easy to work with and responsive to all questions. We are looking forward to our next visit! ~Diana

The Perfect Summer Home

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Montauk for over 40 years and have never rented a house - But as our family grows and grandchildren get added, we wanted to have space so we all could all be together. This home was the ideal location for families there is something for everyone, walking distance to the beach and docks, heated salt-water pool, full kitchen. Sunset views and most importantly, a ping-pong table. Montauk is very special to us, Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. Fran & family

perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, well-maintained home in a great location in Montauk! The house is comfortable and clean and well stocked with towels, beach chairs and more. The neighborhood is quiet and the backyard is great for lounging by the warm pool. We stayed here with 4 kids and 4 adults and space was just right. Our favorite things were walking to the bayside beach which was perfect for the kids or to the local deli for coffee or Gosman's Dock for ice cream. Ditch Plains beach is just an 8 minute drive. Owner is very professional and we'd highly recommend renting here.

What a great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for a week with some family members (4 adults, 4 kids) and we could not have asked for a more perfect house. The owner was accommodating and friendly and the house itself was extremely clean, perfectly situated and well laid out. The addition of a beautiful pool and close proximity to a great beach, Gosman's and other amenities could not be beat. We are already planning our trip for next year... this time two weeks!

Wonderful Week in Montauk

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Montauk. This property was a perfect home base for our family and we found it clean with everything that was promised in the ad.

Montauk is a very charming town, and the proximity of this home to all that Montauk offers is outstanding. We walked to Gossman's for ice cream, took a very short ride to the beach and watched the sun set almost every night.

I would recommend this property hightly.

Our week in Montauk

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week we had. Montauk is such a nice little community (our first time there) and this house was perfect for us. It was totally neat and clean on our arrival and the owners kindly let us arrive a little early. The house is spacious and equipped with every amenity you could possibly want. The large kitchen/dining/living room upstairs is where we "lived." It was a great place to hang out, with a nice deck off of it for grilling, eating, sunning, and reading. Downstairs is another large room with TV, bar, and ping pong table. And the pool was so nice. My 9 month old grandson seemed to prefer it to the sand of the beach so we spent a lot of time lounging around and in the pool.

With a 9 month old with us, we didn't seek out any night life in the area, but enjoyed an outing to the lighthouse and into the town of Montauk which has lots of shops and places to eat.

In short, the house was as nice as it appears in the photographs. I would definitely recommend it.

About Kristine

This house is not just a part time rental but our second home. We like to share it with families that will enjoy it with their families and hopefully love and respect it as we do.

Kristine purchased this house in 2009

Why Kristine chose Culloden Shores

The location is great. The north side of the peninsula opposite the town enjoys milder weather than the ocean side. During the peak season, we are self-contained and can avoid the town crowds since we have plenty of shopping and restaurants to sustain us. Great spot for biking with the family and doing water sports without the big waves. Our neighbors are all year round dwellers.

What makes this house unique

Great energy, light filled, casual and comfortable.

The local area of this home can be described as ocean beach resort. Most all activities are water and beach related although golf, horseback riding, fantastic road and mountain biking, countless hiking trails and more can be found there as well. The quaint town of Montauk can be compared to a small island with plenty of sandy beaches, boutiques, restaurants, marinas and boating. Amagansett and East Hampton are approx. 20 minutes away. Private Block Island Sound beaches are within walking distance.

Golf: Designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., the golf course at Montauk Downs is one of the Top 50 public golf courses in the United States. In addition to the course, the facility offers a full service driving range, a sparkling Olympic sized swimming pool, and 6 Har-tru tennis courts, all located minutes from the house. Tom Dess manages the course as the General Manager. Greens fees are $114* on weekends and $104* on weekdays for out of state residents. NY State residents pay 1/2. * includes golf cart where available
