Great long-time friend get-together over a long weekend at Windows on the Sea in Ocean Beach, Fire Island.The house is impeccable and clean. With updated amenities, homeowners Whitney & Anthony have thought of everything and are easily accessible via phone or text. From voice command Alexa, who seems to know all, to the surround sound speakers, which give a musical to the background to this beautifully appointed home. Bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas, leave them all home, because the homeowners have them readily available for you to use. The beach and ocean, which are visible from almost every area of the home, is truly a very short walking distance and the restaurants & shops are a picturesque, easy walk from the house.
So happy to have had the pleasure of staying their home. Thank you to Whitney & Anthony for sharing their home with us. You’ve completely surpassed my expectations, Whitney & Anthony...can’t wait to return to Windows on the Sea.
Jenny's house is a much-loved family home with some wonderful features. There's a beautiful almost cabin like feel in the living room-kitchen area because of the knotty pine walls, and we appreciated the comfortable couches and bed in the master bedroom — as well as the smart tv, the layout of the kitchen, the air conditioning & heating, washer and dryer, and the spacious outdoor deck. The bedrooms upstairs are nice as well, though we didn't use them, and as seniors wouldn't have wanted to go up and down the steep staircase ourselves to get downstairs to the bathroom. Since it was just two of us, we didn't need to. For a family with kids this would be no problem. The property needs a bit of work — better sliding glass doors that aren't stained and working screen doors — so as to take full advantage of the nice view of and access to the deck. (New sliding doors & screens are, apparently, on order, which is good!) There were two well-used bikes, though it wasn't that easy to get them in and out of the shed. The washer and dryer were great — but the shed in which they were housed could have used more cleaning. In any case, despite these small details, the location was perfect, and Jenny was very helpful when we needed more lightbulbs and a bike lock. What was especially nice was that because we came off-season, she gave us early check-in and late checkout, which truly contributed to our feeling relaxed and welcomed. As noted in the title, we had a great time!
