‘SNL’ Star Colin Jost Is Renting Out His Montauk Beach House for $65K a Month

It looks like Colin Jost isn’t planning to spend the summer surfing.

Instead, the “Saturday Night Live” Weekend Update co-host is renting out his oceanfront home in Montauk, NY, at the eastern end of Long Island.

The four-bedroom, three-bath property is idyllic, with sea views and a sparkling pool—all ready for blissful summer leisure.

But before you start packing, you’ll have to dig deep—the breezy-chic rental is $65,000 a month. Jost has had the beach retreat since 2015, when he picked up the place for about $2.1 million.

The wry funnyman is doing quite well on the real estate front. He sold his West Village duplex in NYC last year for a tidy profit. Jost bought the two-bedroom, two-bath bachelor pad for about $1.7 million in 2011 and sold it for a little more than $2.3 million.

As for his beach life, here’s what he’ll miss this summer.

Ocean views from the deck

Dining area




Ocean vistas fill the house from the decks and grassy lawn, all situated “south of the highway.” In Hamptons-speak, this means the home is in one of the area’s more desirable locations. The 2,600-square-foot abode is set on a hill, offering salty breezes and extra privacy.

The simple decor inside offers a mostly white palette, with pops of blue. Throughout the space, there are multiple decks and glass walls that flood the rooms with light. There’s a new Sub-Zero fridge in the open kitchen and a double fireplace in the main living space that warms the living and dining rooms.

The primary bedroom also has ocean views, its own deck, a wet bar, and walk-in closet. Other amenities include a steam shower, a bocce court, fire pit, heated pool, and a Sonos sound system with indoor and outdoor speakers.
