GORGEOUS OCEANFRONT HOME, FABULOUS VIEWS - FIRE ISLAND

Robbins Rest House Rental Photos and Description

3 BR, 2 BA, livingroom/kitchen +screened-in porch, sleeps 5

REALLY A GREAT HOUSE, GREAT VIEWS, GREAT LOCATION!

Beautiful oceanfront house on Fire Island in Robbins Rest, a small community of 30 houses. All rooms face the ocean - with sliding glass doors opening onto deck from almost every room, ocean is yards away House Is On The Beach. No cars - ten minute walk to ferry -decks around entire house. Totally modern, cathedral ceilings, sits on the sand of the beach. Great for kid watching!

Three bedrooms; Bedroom #1 - king-sized bed; 2 complete ocean views - floor to ceiling, wall to wall views,, Bedroom #2 - 2 single beds (can be separated or combined) - full ocean view - wall to wall, floor to ceiling views; Bedroom #3 sleeps one. Living room/kitchen - white walls with light wood trim - complete ocean views , wall to wall, floor to ceiling views in two directions- -- Plus: Lovely large screened-in room, leading out from kitchen area for dining or just hanging out. 90 minutes from New York City plus half hour ferry ride.

I have owned this house for twenty years. I rent it out only 4 weeks over the Summer. It's a really fantastic place, Right On The Ocean. I have tenants who come back year after year. This is an owner-occupied home -- it is not a group house. It's kept up beautifully. I have loved every moment I have spent on Fire Island in Robbins Rest. The neighbors are wonderful and respect each other's privacy. References upon request.

Great House in fantastic secluded location

  • 5 of 5
This lovely house is really located directly on the sandy beach of Fire Island, with fantastic views from most rooms to the Atlantic Ocean and to the beach. It is located approx. 20 min away from the "Ocean Beach" Ferry terminal by walking, which adds to the honeymoon-like feeling in that great place. The owner provides a wagon with 2 big wheels to help transporting the luggage and groceries from the Ferry and from the Town Center to this secluded house, partly walking thru a sand path. Although we were there during high season, there hardly were any people on the beach, and it was very nice and quiet around the house. Although not huge, the inside and the outside of this house are very much thought thru: we enjoyed to sit on the big eastern wooden deck of the house in the morning, and on the big western wooden deck in the evening. On windy days, the living room with its fantastic views (thru the big panoramic windows) was our favourite place.
The owner of the house went out of her way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible: She had informed us about a pending strike of the LIRR railroad beforehand, and she had recommended to us an alternative arrival method with a local car service.
We had a great time, and we hope to come again in the future!

The most beautiful place I've ever woken up

The most beautiful place I've ever woken up

This is the perfect house in the perfect location--the owners have maximized the incredible beachfront location in every way. There is a wraparound deck for sun, a screened in porch for shade, and the living room and kitchen have walls of glass facing the water with screens for beautiful breezes. The master bedroom has two walls of glass doors that open (onto the deck) along a curve of the beach so that you wake up feeling you are outside. At night the moon is in the room with you. I woke up early one morning to see foxes playing on the beach outside. The house is perfectly equipped for cooking, the beach out front is never busy, and if you long for action Ocean Beach is just one town away. Highly recommended!

Excellent!

The photo on the ad does not show the updated windows on the home which make the views from inside the home incredible. If you want a beach all to yourself (no lifeguards) Robbins Rest is the place. Two nice-size bedrooms, both with views and one closet-sized bedroom. Nice kitchen, and outdoor shower. The bathroom under the home was not bad. Did not find much use for the rear screened-in porch and the decking around the home was more than necessary for the 5-10 allowed. Owner should consider getting rid of the built-in table on the front deck, not really practical. The 15-minute walk to town was a bit much but worth the seclusion when you arrived back at the home. There was a usable volleyball net and four beach chairs that were not in great shape and a couple of child-sized boogie boards that were okay. The bicycle advertised was not usuable. Ocean Beach is fun, Robbins Rest is a great place to stay away from the crowds and still be part of the action. If you decide to freight a lot of food over, be prepared for a long, tough walk to the house, even with two wagons provided by the owner. Renters should be aware that in addition to the rental fee that there is a charge of $110 that is deducted from your security deposit, no matter how immaculate you leave the house.

Owner's Response: I just read this review. Though this rentor may not have used my lovely screened-in porch, many guests have enjoyed it and in fact have written me how great it was to have a shaded space and extra space for dinner parties.
As far as the table out front is concerned, I use it all the time, as do all of my rentors. With regards to the chairs -- that will be taken care of for next season, and thank you for bringing this to my attention. With regards to the cleaning fee, my cleaner always comes in to prepare for the next rentor. Again many thanks for taking the time to give my home a five star Excellent review.
