About Reggie Ollen

I grew up in Whitestone, New York and went to school at Fordham Prep and Columbia U. I work as a video engineer on commercials. My wife went to James Madison U. and the Culinary Institute of America. She handles the property and more. We and our two boys live in Brooklyn.

Reggie Ollen purchased this house in 1998

Why Reggie Ollen chose Hamptons

I bought the house before I was married as a place my family could meet for holidays. It was also near to Hampton Bays where my sister had moved in the 1990's. Now that we have kids the house is again something new. We decided to shorten the deck and bring in 80 tons of clean sand to create a private beach above the real one four feet below the walkway in this picture of my son. We also ran a picket fence around the front yard to keep in our kids and our dog where we can see them. This year we renovated and heated the garage for a rainy day play room with a pool table. The house is always a work in progress but it is nearly all that we ever hoped it could be.

What makes this house unique

There is a magical feeling about the house, the nearness to the water. Waking up and having tea or coffee on the beach after an outdoor shower is always vacation to me. Having a small fire in the pit on the beach in the evening is another one of my favorite things to do with the kids.We go through a lot of marshmallows.

Reggie thanks again for allowing us to rent your home.

We had a great time!

Nothing better than waking up to that view!

The house was great and very roomy for a large family such as ours. There were minor things that need repair or extra TLC but nothing major. The house was just an hour and half outside of New York City so that was nice to not be so close but close enough. Montauk alone was beautiful the town and the history. If you can make it to the lighthouse at Montauk Point I'd definitely check it out!

Great location, responsive owner, let down by lack of cleanliness

  • 3 of 5
Verified Stay

We stayed for 5 nights over Christmas 2016. The house is in a great location - right on the water with amazing views, particularly from the master bedroom and the living room. 4 large bedrooms, lots of communal space and well equipped for big groups. You need a car to drive into town, but it's only a short drive and there's a great supermarket, liquor store, drug store, etc. within easy reach.

We had a couple of plumbing issues (a leak from one of the bathrooms and some issues with the hot water). While neither were fully resolved, the owner was incredibly responsive and sent a plumber out within a couple of hours.

Our only real concern / frustration with the house was the cleanliness of it. Since it's used by big groups, we found a lot of leftovers from previous tenants in bathrooms, bedrooms, under couches, etc. which made us wonder if it had been cleaned thoroughly. We also had to re-clean the kitchen and any plates/silverware we used as it hadn't been done properly. The place needs clearing out of a lot of the clutter and a really good deep clean. With this, it would be 5 stars!

Owner's Response: I recently discussed this issue with my cleaning service (again) and found out that there was a scheduling mix-up and they never actually visited our property between tenants. The place was left "relatively clean" by the previous tenants, as expected, but the house was never properly cleaned by our house keeping service before the folks who wrote this review arrived. We deeply regret the mix-up and had we known about the condition of the house when they arrived we would have had the house keepers there within the hour. Unfortunately we learned about the condition after the renter's stay. We sincerely apologize.

This property was absolutely gorgeous!!!! The house is right on the water 🏖

I rented Reggies house for the weekend of November 18th for a girls getaway. One of my girlfriends and I arrived to the house first and were we totally blown away with the location of the property!!!! It was a perfect weather weekend so the private beach and fire pit were great to have. And the house itself is huge! It was a lot bigger than picture so plenty of room to spread out! Reggie had left flowers on the long dinning room table for us and ice in the freezer which was so appreciated and a nice touch.

Our first night we stayed in and hung out in the jacuzzi which was so relaxing for this time of year. Bonus was looking out into the the water behind us and seeing swans swim by!

Our second day we went to Jamesport Vineyards for a tasting and decided to get back to the house cause it was much more fun there lol. We ordered in from an Italian restaurant Francesca's. It was delicious! Then some of us hung out in the hot tub again and the rest played in the gagrage Game Room which is another bonus!!! It has a pool table and vintage pin ball and big screen tv.

All and all it was a fantastic weekend at a great house with good friends 😊 Thank you so much Reggie!!!!

Could not have been more satisfied with the property. The location and ease of access is tremendous and the property is beautiful. The house is deceiving as it has many rooms and great spacing. Terrific amenities and niceties which make this a place I'd love to return to in the future. The owners are awesome, fully engaged, and work pretty diligently to ensure a nice stay for their renters.

Wonderful Vacation, Home, & Owner!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for a week during the month of January. We truly had a wonderful vacation staying at this house. It has incredible views of Shinnecock Bay. Every day that we were there we got to watch seals swimming by. The house, itself was perfect, with many amenities. The house is secluded, but yet near a town for any of your needs. Reggie, the owner was terrific! He answered all of our questions and always responded quickly. We truly hope in the future to be able to visit this amazing house again!

Hampton Bays is in the town of Southampton, and is the gateway to the Hamptons. Long Island forks at this point, giving the town a close proximity to both ocean beaches (Ponquogue Beach State Park) and calm water bay beaches (Shinnecock Bay and Meschutt Beach State Park on Peconic Bay - featuring a playground, live music every night and a stand-out beach bar and restaurant.) Across the Shinnecock Canal, the house is actually in Shinnecock Hills, known for it's famous golf course, one of the oldest in the U.S., and the U.S. Open. (Good luck getting a tee time!) Set back away from the road, facing sunny Southeast, the house location is near to many local restaurants, other fine public golf courses (a rated list is available,) jet-ski rentals, fishing boat excursions, clamming, and Vineyards. Southampton is five miles East, Hampton Bays is two miles West. Several Marinas within one mile rent boats. Fifteen minutes to Atlantis Marine World, Long Island's Aquarium.
