About Joe Beck

Completely renovated 2008. I lived just north of Fire Island and went to high school there. I fist went to Fire Island as a child with my family many years ago. We rode the Fire Island Queen, which has long-since been retired. I returned to Kismet in the 1980's as an adult and fell in love with Fire Island again.

Joe Beck purchased this house in 2001

Why Joe Beck chose Kismet

Unique Fire Island experience. Maintaining the house in top shape is a year-round endeavor, a labor of love, as I call it.

What makes this house unique

Great bay view. Many amenities.

Great house with an even better view!

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded expectations! Downstairs, it has 5 spacious bedrooms along with 2 full bathrooms and access to a lower deck with an outdoor shower. Upstairs, there is a beautiful, modern kitchen, large dining area and a spacious living room with access to a huge deck that overlooks the Great South Bay. Everything was very clean and well maintained. Joe, the owner, was also very responsive and willing to make our stay as nice as possible.

Great Beach house! awesome amenities, great location

  • 5 of 5

I have been coming to Kismet for many years and have never stayed in a house that was as comfortable as this one. Open floor plan living area with beautifully renovated kitchen, central AC, 5 bedrooms tastefully decorated and comfortable. Joe the owner of the house is a very nice guy, the house is well maintained and everything you need to enjoy a beach vacation is available. Great way to enjoy the beach and not miss out on the modern comforts of home.
