Step Inside This Chic Montauk Rental Where Everything Is for Sale—Including the House!
The McKinley Bungalow is a ranch-style summer rental filled with designer furniture and accessories that you can take home as souvenirs.
Ever wish you could copy the style of a cute rental on vacay? Now you can! Robert McKinley, the designer behind Studio Robert McKinley in New York has created the McKinley Bungalow, a modern-meets-Montauk summer rental where everything—and we mean everything—can be purchased. You can buy any of the furniture, artwork, or décor that catches your eye during your stay. (And if you decide you never want to leave, the house itself can be yours.)
McKinley outfitted the ranch-style house with the Studio's favorite products: vintage and midcentury furniture mixed with pieces from Bungalow design partners that fit the salt-weathered ethos of Montauk.
“To me, summertime is always about entertaining with friends at home, so we wanted to collaborate with our favorite artists, makers and manufacturers to produce a space that would bring people together,” McKinley says.
Originally built in 1978, the 1,900-square-foot Bungalow retains elements of its salty roots—exposed beams and a plaster fireplace—that contrast (in the best way!) with the newer LED lighting and sleek countertops. Plus, the clean, white walls and natural oak floors are just begging for a weekend by the sea, which is exactly what McKinley intended.
“[My wife, Kate, and I] were inspired to create a residence that truly feels like a dream home, ideal for relaxed beach getaways,” he says.
Good news for guests: The beach is just around the corner. Nestled in a residential neighborhood, the Bungalow is a quick five-minute drive to Ditch Plains Beach and its famous lighthouse. Bonus! Ditch the car and hop on one of the Bungalow-provided Shinola bikes to enjoy the ocean breeze on your way to the sand.
