It was okay

  • 2 of 5

Nice place, good location, on the smaller side. I would probably not stay again, some of the other units in the outrigger are nicer. I would have given a solid three stars but took one off bc the communication was really poor and our damage deposit was held for almost two months for no reason. We sent numerous msg through home away that were ignored, it was very frustrating. Another reviewer had the same issue.... very suspicious, I wonder what happens to the damage deposit if people don't realize it's refundable and never pursue getting it back.

Owner's Response: The cottage is clearly marketed as a studio and we give dimensions of the living space within the description. The cottage was completely updated in 2015. We take great pride in the decor and the layout of the cottage. We believe it is one of the top properties on Lake Montauk for its size. As for the claim it took two months for the deposit to be returned, that is impossible, since that it has not yet been two months since this guest stayed in the cottage. The security deposit was returned one month after the guests stay. I had believed I had authorized it to be released but it was not. The morning the guest texted me to my personal cell phone I responded and by 10am that morning I had released the security deposit with my apologies. I subsequently followed up with the guest to make sure he had received his funds in full.

Owner's Response: I pass along the cost of the cleaning to each guest of the cottage. The cleaning company I hired generally charged me what I would collect as a cleaning fee. The cleaning of the cottage after this stay required over two hours of cleaning which cost more than the cleaning fee I charged. When I inquired of the cleaning service why it took longer they said it simply took more time to get the cottage ready for the next guest. I simply withheld the funds from the security deposit that was in excess of the charge for the cottage cleaning. I explained this in two separate emails to the guest. My responses were timely when the guest inquired of me why the funds were withheld from the security deposit.

Top notch accomadations with beautiful water views

  • 5 of 5

Karl was a phenomenal host! His home was in perfect condition and had everything we needed and more! Any question we had were answered immediately and he left us undisturbed for over 10 days. We couldn't have asked for a better host and home. Looking forward to staying there again soon :)

This the perfect mini vacation for a family of 3/4 or couple. The decor is beautiful. Only a 5 min drive to beach and town . Everything is provided for you. Fans are provided ( no Ac) but you do t even need them because of the constant gentle cool breeze . I definitely recommend this place for anyone who needs some peace and quiet . We were very happy with our stay🌺🌺🌺

Wonderfully situated cottage on the Lake in MTK.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is small, but totally great and more than adequate for 4 people. The owners have made it super comfortable and who wants to be inside anyways!?!

The property is great. We had a cool breeze blowing the whole time. Super quiet and mostly mature neighbors (the cottages are quite close to each other). The kids could play in the yard w/o worry. We will definitely be back.

Parking spot and Beach pass are just bonuses.
