40's single divorced, non-smoker, very laid back. Started in Montauk by working on a private sportfishing boat during the summer of '86. That summer I watched two boats from our marina haul record fish to the dock's scales. The first was Bill Sweedler with the Atlantic Record Blue Marlin weighing 1,174 lbs! The second was Frank Mundus, the world famous Montauk Capt. portrayed in the movie 'Jaws', with his 3,427 lb. World Record Great White Shark. From that point on my fascination with Montauk had become a lifelong love affair that continues to intensify!

RICHARD O'CONNELL purchased this house in 2006

What makes this house unique

My house is in the perfect location in Montauk. We have the best beach with world class surfing, sunbathing, swimming or roasting marshmallows after sipping wine and eating cheese at your bonfire.

Could not have had a better time

  • 5 of 5

Rich was a class act! Upon arrival my group of friends and couples immediately loved the property as well as Rich. He let us know the lay of the land and all the amazing extras the house had to offer (outdoor shower, grill with gas line to the house etc.). Throughout our stay, Rich was quick to reply to any questions we had about the house/neighborhood. Overall Rich and the house were a 10, and we all can't wait to come back soon.

Thanks again Rich!

Awesome family vacation

  • 5 of 5

I came to Montauk last week with my wife and kids (12&10). After searching high and low for a place to stay I came across this listing and chose it due to its amenities and reviews. Let me say it exceeded our expectations. The house was clean and the beds were comfy. The house had a well manicured yard with a wooden play set, hammock & tree swing. There was a huge deck off the back of the house with tables and a BBQ, it also had an outdoor shower with hot water which the kids love to use. Ditch Plains has one of the nicest beaches I've visited, which was a short walking distance away and all the people were so friendly.

The kitchen was stocked with all the plates,pans and utensils needed to cook for the family. We usually made breakfast, packed a lunch then ate dinner in town. With the 3 bedrooms 2 showers and a 1/2 bath there is plenty of space. Richie, the owner, was so acommodating. I highly recommend this place for your next vacation.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very friendly and helpful. The beach (Ditch Plains Beach) was lovely with a lot to keep our young kids occupied and only a short walk away. The kids also enjoyed playing in the back garden.

Best of All worlds

  • 5 of 5

This house has the perfect combination of location, size, amenities at the right price. Plenty of parking, nice sized deck in the back to relax on. Bring a bike and you don't even need to move your car, beach is close, so are the restaurants. Richie is a great host and works out everything for you.

Me and my family decided to come out to Montauk for a quick get-away, so happy we found this place. The owner was very accommodating and the home was clean (I'm a bit of a neat freak). The beach was beautiful and within walking distance. The town was close but far enough away for peace and quiet. My kids loved it, we had and awesome time! Thanks so much for the memories.

Would defiantly recommend.
