Comfortable, cozy well located beach house in Ocean Bay Park

  • 3 of 5

Pro: The house looks exactly like the pictures displayed in the listing. It is great having the Master bedroom on one side of the house with the other two on the other side of the open living space, giving you great privacy. The beds are extremely comfortable. The house itself was very clean and the kitchen had just about everything you need for a small group of 6 people. Each room had ceiling fans so it was not necessary to run the air conditioning most of the time, which is a great plus for me. The owner of the home was quick to respond to all of our requests and very courteous

There is no TV in the main living area. Just an FYI. depending on the family could be a pro or a con.

Con: I encourage any people who stay in a VRBO house to mention things that they find wrong in the house as it helps the owner to correct issues for the next renter. This being said, whoever has rented this house after us, your stay will hopefully be more pleasant than ours because we did complain and unfortunately do to the area, things did not get fixed during our stay.

1. The BBQ grill might not have been used prior to us renting the house. When we removed the cover, there were a lot of cob webs which led us to believe this so the owner had not been made aware of the condition of the grill. Then again, if you are renting a house that is supposed to have a working grill at the beginning of the season one would think it would have been checked. Grill had no bottom, no drip pan and the elements were all burned out. Grilling was very difficult and we do enjoy cooking on the grill. Replacement grill arrived on our departure date.

2. I rented a house with two functioning indoor bathrooms, only to find out that the shower in the front bathroom was not working properly, therefore 6 adults had to use the only indoor shower in the Master. Very inconvenient as 4 of us were women

3. if you go to Fire Island to enjoy an outdoor shower, this is not the home for you. IMO, it needs a total rebuild. I had to clean out over 20 bricks, webs and remove insects that were making a home in the shower. Even then, I would not enter it barefoot at all.

4. not sure this is true for just the area of OBP we stayed in but it seems this part of FI has a lot of house shares with young adults which makes it rather difficult to enjoy a quiet escape to the beach. Of course this is not the fault of this owner as he does not allow house shares but it was prevalent on this block.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. It is very important for owners to receive such information when items are not functioning as they should. Based on your feedback I have replaced the grill with a new one, replaced the shower head that was not working properly, as well as in the process of fixing the outdoor shower. Again thank you for the feedback, it helps me keep the house in top working order for my guests.

Perfect cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful cottage that is perfect for two couples or two families with children. It is well appointed and very comfortable. We were met by the property manager who was eager to be sure that everything was in place. We had a big group and part of the group was in the house next door. It worked out perfectly that some of us stayed in the smaller cottage while others were in a bigger house. We had a great time. No complaints.

Pleasant stay

  • 3 of 5

Pros: The house was pretty much as advertised and the photos give a very accurate idea of what the house looks like. It is very close to the beach, Ocean Bay Park ferry and market. Very comfortable and clean.

Cons: Our first impression was not so great because when we arrived there was basically water under and in front of the house with plastic bottles, bags and other trash floating in it. Granted it had rained the day before we arrived but we were there for 4 rainless days and the water remained under the house the entire time.

In addition, there were 2 bicycles but the pedals on both were broken and falling off and the seats could not be adjusted. The kitchen was nice but not very well appointed.

Fabulous week of relaxation and fun

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely beautiful. Extremely well kept, the location was perfect - short walk to town and a minute walk to the beach. House had everything you could possibly need to stay there and was so well maintained. The owner was always helpful with questions before our rental and after the rental, there was no need to contact the owner during the rental. I love that the house was available from Sunday - Sunday, very rare for Fire Island and my husband and I totally want to rent the house again next year. I highly recommend this house if you are looking for a relaxing and fun stay at OBP.

Lovely beach house

  • 5 of 5

This lovely beach house is beautifully decorated and well maintained. It is spacious and comfortably housed six guests during our week stay. The kitchen appliances are modern and in good order. The washer and dryer work well. There is a large patio with comfortable lounge chairs, an umbrella and a large table and eight chairs. We ate on the patio every evening. The location is midway between the ocean and bay and a 3-5 minute walk to either. The Pantry grocery store and Flynn's and The Schooner restaurants are an easy 5 minute walk. We stayed June 19th to 26th. The summer crowds hit the island on the Friday of the second weekend but before that the island was really quiet and serene. If I were to return I would definitely plan it for a time before the summer season opens. Courtland was really great to deal with. He responded promptly to all of our emails and checked in with us during our stay to make sure everything was in order. I would highly recommend this beach house to my friends and family.
