So come and enjoy a fantastic indoor/outdoor vacation experience.
Our home features an open living area with ample seating for family and friends.

The downstairs outside deck is easily accessed through 2 large sliding glass doors allowing for easy flow from the kitchen, living room and dining room to the deck. The kitchen was recently renovated and is fully equipped with the family chef in mind; refrigerator, oven/ stove, dishwasher, microwave, blender, coffee pot, toaster, quality cookware and tableware.

Our home features 3 large bedrooms - 1 upstairs & 2 downstairs. The upstairs bedroom has an amazing ocean view through the oversized sliding glass door/window system, which affords you the pleasure of watching and listening to the waves as they lull you to sleep each night. Additional features of this bedroom include a private bath with shower, closet, ceiling fan, night tables with reading lamps, and quality linens for both bed and bath.
The downstairs bedrooms face east & overlook the side yard/eastern dune line. Bedroom 2 features a queen size bed, a twin size bed, night tables with reading lamps, a dresser, ceiling fan and a closet. Bedroom 3 features a full size bed, night tables with reading lamps, dresser, ceiling fan and closet. All bedrooms are good sized and work well as adult or children’s rooms. Since our home is on the ocean all of the rooms are kept cool & comfortable by the on shore ocean breezes. The best part is that the ocean waves can be heard breaking on the beach from all rooms in the house...the perfect backdrop to an extremely restful nights sleep!
Our home has 2 full bathrooms each with a shower. The downstairs bath was newly renovated and remodeled this spring. Quality bath towels and beach towels are provided for your convenience. There is also an outdoor shower for washing off sandy feet after a fun filled beach day!
Our house is situated steps away from the Atlantic Ocean, The Great South Bay as well as the Sunken Forest. Restaurants, grocery store, liquor store, ice cream shop, tennis courts, children’s playground, movies, shopping and children’s day camp (through September 1) are only a short walk or quick bike ride away.
It takes approximately 1 hour, 10 minutes by train, car or private van to the Fire Island Ferry dock from NYC. Then it is just a 25 minute relaxing ferry boat ride to the beach (parking is available at the ferry dock in Bay Shore).
I want to thank you for the opportunity to stay at such a wonderful place, it is truly paradise.

Located only 50 miles from New York City, Fire Island is a barrier beach running parallel to the south shore of Long Island. During the summer months there are no cars allowed on the island and it is only accessible by ferry. Once on the beach everyone walks or rides their bicycles from town to town. Red wagons are used all over the island to transport luggage, groceries, children and for those all important entrepreneurial “lemonade and painted shell stands”. Fire Island is a place for children run free and for adults to relax.
Fun things to do & enjoy on our Beach:
32 miles of white sandy beaches
Surfing, Swimming, Boogie boarding, Kite surfing
Hiking – Walking through the Sunken Forest is must for all vacation travelers. You can also explore The Fire Island Light House, or just walk the miles of endless beach.
Shopping – Ocean Beach is about a 10 minute bike ride from house. It’s the “big” town on the island, full of summer tourists, shops & restaurants…definitely fun to explore on a lazy afternoon.
Restaurants – There are a couple restaurants, pizza parlor & ice cream shop in Ocean Bay Park. Ocean Beach offers even more restaurant choices.
It’s also easy to visit other towns via water taxi.
