We stayed for 5 days in Ellen’s beautiful Fire Island home in July (2012). Even though the photos are very well taken, they are unable to capture the magic atmosphere of this Fire Island home. The view of the ocean, bay, and even wildlife are extraordinary. We appreciated Ellen’s warm welcome and her availability. The neighbours were also very friendly and helpful. The house was very well organized and equipped from separate cutting boards for meat, fish, and vegetables to beach toys for the children. The irreproachable cleanliness and upkeep of the property really made us feel at home. Since we enjoyed the house and the beach so much, we really didn’t visit Fire Island beyond Ocean Beach. We hope to return to Ellen’s home for a longer stay on a future vacation. I highly recommend this home to anyone who enjoys relaxing and calm beach vacations!
