Families and couples take advantage of beach access and privacy
Condo-style units tend to attract families with small children, and this is no exception. That being said, the complex remains private, and so it may also appeal to couples in search of peace and quiet. The main attraction here is its easy access from Highway 27. Though the large pool, tennis courts, playground, and grill area are draws, most people are here for one reason: easy access to the beach.
Off of the main 27 highway between Amagansett and Montauk
Eastern Long Island is a summer vacation hot spot. This resort is situated on a side street just off the main highway and close to the beach. A car is needed to get around the area, and Montauk’s bustling town is just a 10-minute drive up the road.
Montauk is one of the least built up, most peaceful towns. Located at the very tip of Long Island (and nicknamed "The End"), this little hamlet has 12 miles of exposed, open road surrounded by water on three sides. Many visitors opt for recreational activities such as surfing at Ditch Plains, hiking through the Montauk Mountain Preserve, and playing tennis at Montauk Downs.
Studios, one-, two-, or three-bedroom units available with efficiency or full kitchens
These condo-style units are large in size and vary greatly in decor. Some are more updated than others, so make sure to ask before booking (expect cheap-looking wallpaper, artwork, and furnishings in some). All units have at least one balcony, and some have two. Most first-floor units have a view of the dunes, while second-floor units tend to be more upscale, and will likely have a view of the ocean.
Easy beach access, an outdoor pool, and a private setting
Smack dab between Amagansett and Montauk, the Sea Crest on the Ocean resort is a two-level condo property containing studio, one-, two-, or three-bedroom units. Studios contain efficiency kitchens, and all others have full kitchens. Units vary greatly in decor depending on owner, so ask for a description when booking. The main attraction here is the easy and free access to the beach, but additional highlights include the outdoor pool, charcoal grills, and tennis courts. Located just off the Highway 27 artery, a car is needed to reach local restaurants and attractions (and there's no restaurant on-site). Second-floor rooms are more likely to have a view of the ocean.
