About the property

5 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Loft, Sleeps 10

This is the perfect vacation rental. The house is located one block to Ditch Plains Beach. This may be the most beautiful stretch of coastline in all of Long Island. There is great swimming, surfing, body surfing, and hiking on the bluffs located just short stroll from your front door. The house has all the amenities needed to make your vacation relaxing and comfortable. There is a great private backyard with teak outdoor furniture, and enough room to play wiffle ball, soccer or have a football catch. We have a teak table and chairs for outdoor dining and both a charcoal webber kettle and brand new webber gas grill. ***BRAND NEW OUTDOOR SHOWER***

It is important to note that we use the house personally, so it is kept clean and has a very warm feeling. If you get a cool montauk evening, you can even get the wood fireplace going or take some of our firewood to the beach for a bonfire. The house certainly works for two families as it has 5 bedrooms, a very rare quality in Ditch Plains. There is also a second upstairs living space which works perfect for the kids so the adults have the downstairs all to themselves.

The driveway has ample space for about 4 cars.

House has a flat screen with Direct TV satellite with High Definition for all your sports and movie entertainment. Downstairs in the fireplace, kitchen, living room, 2 bedrooms and one bathroom and upstairs is 3 bedrooms, an extra den/sleeping area with a computer and one bathroom. There is a an ocean view from the upstairs windows.

Beautiful house with everything you could possibly need. Very clean and comfortable. Short walk to beach. Rick was very helpful and available at all times. Would definitely stay at his home again.

Perfect House, Location, and Owner

  • 5 of 5

Can't ask for much more, here are some thoughts....


Great condition as advertised, plenty of space. The backyard is huge and perfect for yard games, sun bathing, and just hanging out. It has tall trees and is a corner lot so it's very quiet and secluded.


Forget your sunglasses or cold beverage at home? No problem, the beach is so close you pop back and forth very easily. The part of the beach that is closest to the house is also known for the best waves. it was fun to watch the dozens and dozens of surfers all day. The beach is huge with great views of the cliffs/bluffs. There is even a food truck at the entrance to the beach if you need something to eat or drink.

Downtown is doable on bikes, but cabs usually show up within 5-10 minutes of being called and the ride is ~3minutes to downtown so we just did that.


Rick was the most responsive owner I've ever rented from. Emails, calls, and texts were answered or replied to within hours.

Awesome House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend in Ditch Plains at Rick's home in mid April and had a great time. The house is exactly as described and the location is perfect, just a 2 min walk to the beach! When we arrived the house was very clean and had everything we needed. We made a big dinner and had plenty of dishes and silverware. There was also 2 BBQs (Gas & Charcoal) to used as well. He has a great backyard, plenty of space with lots of sun! The beds are very clean and even more comfortable. Rick provided excellent customer service and had great communication the entire time. He was able to answer all of my questions prior to renting and continued to communicate throughout the process. He give us great recommendations and a detailed map of where to go and what to do. I would definitely recommend this home to my friends and family for a relaxing stay in Montauk in an awesome location. Rick has a wonderful home and was a pleasure to rent from.

Thank you for a great weekend!!

Can't-miss location, cozy and charming!

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as described with ample room for 10 people and plenty of firewood to burn over 3 days, which was very much appreciated. We came over New Years and it was absolutely perfect: clean, with all the needed cooking equipment and a great grill. You are literally 1 block from the beach and awesome hiking in Shadmoor Park. Dealing with Rick the owner was also a pleasure as he was very accessible (even while traveling in South America) and helped us with connecting to Wifi and turning the outdoor shower on immediately when we called. Would absolutely rent this place again and hope to next year! -John

Perfect Spot for the 4th of July!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for a group of working professionals married/single/ and couples. The rooms were a good size and private and there are 3 showers to accommodate everyone. The living area and kitchen are open so that conversation can continually flow and the fun can continue without isolating those that are cooking.

Not to mention there are enough beach towels to last EVERYONE a whole week! Although a washer and dryer is included as well in case you need it for other things :)

Beach access was the best part - only a short walk away we had the pleasure of enjoying days at the beach and bonfires at night. Everything you need is there - beach supplies for the nice days and games and cable for the rainy days. This was really perfect for a group of laid back people wanting to spend time together by the beach.

The landlord was extremely accommodating accessible and responsive which was one of the most important things to our group, living in New York City you can imagine how many of us were refreshed by this.

Horseback riding is up the street, surfing around the corner, and town is less than a 3 minute drive away. What more could you ask for?

Great house, great location, great owner!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time and experience at this house! Six of us, 3 couples stayed and it was our favorite place we've stayed in Montauk thus far - been coming for the last couple years. We had plenty if space, great living area and back yard, and we really appreciated the fact that all the bedrooms were the same / equal in terms of size and beds... makes it easy to share with friends. It was fun being right by ditch plains as well - it's literally just across the street. The best part is the owner is great to work with - very responsive friendly and helpful. It was just a great experience all around. We'll be back!
