Perfect Seaside Holiday

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 18, 2012

We would recommend this house to anyone and would definitely like to go back again to this special place.

We live in Albuquerque, NM and had never been to Fire Island before. The owners were so very helpful that we felt like we knew the town before we even got there. We rented in June and the weather was exceptional. Everything about this house was perfect - well maintained, clean and ideal for our family vacation. The house is located very close to the ocean and you can actually hear the waves break at night. On a summer holiday it is the outside that really determines how much enjoyment you will get from your stay. The spacious deck is filled with candles, lights and beautiful plants and flowers. In the mornings, we would sit outside and listen to all the different species of birds that we checked out in the bird books the owners were thoughtful enough to leave for us. Just wonderful. Since there are no cars you can walk to a very self-contained town that even has a movie theatre. The town does get very crowded at night but the kids loved that about it. The bathrooms and kitchen were very well equipped and newly renovated, and the outdoor shower was just sublime!

There are two cats that live on the deck and my kids were in competition about who gets to feed them first. It made them feel very at home and responsible.

It was a nice touch to receive a text from the owners to ensure we were settling in well and to ask if there was anything we needed. They were great to rent from and truly make the house feel like your home away from home. They also very prompt in returning our security deposit. All in all, a great experience we hope to repeat.

Not what we expected.

Our family stayed in this house in August of 2011. The owners greeted us at the ferry and led us to the cottage, where they announced the rules of the house before they allowed us to enter (wash off the sand, keep the door closed, etc.). Then they gave us a tour of the home which is completely filled with their personal possessions, including clothing and food. If you think you're going to use the dressers or closets, think again -- their food lined the cupboards, filled the fridge, and their clothes were in the drawers and in the closets. Imagine finding someone's dirty slippers under your bed, or a pair of someone else's bathrobes hanging on the back of the bathroom door? Or taking a shower and finding a used bar of soap? There are notes all over telling you what you are and are not allowed to use. The blender is stored in the area "off limits". Then there are the cats. Imagine our surprise at finding a cat sleeping on our bed in our room. The owners ended up taking their own cats, but there were feral cats we were asked to feed. One of our children has an allergy to cats and was very uncomfortable during our stay. The upstairs has a room air conditioner, but it is ineffective against the heat. The upstairs bathroom is a powder room only and the ceilings are not high enough to stand up inside, unless you are under five feet tall. The smell of cat urine is pervasive in the two downstairs bedrooms.
We can't leave the review without at least noting the positives: the house is nicely located on Fire Island. The owners left chocolate and wine for us, and the outdoor shower is nice. There are granite countertops in the kitchen.
After reading the nine other reviews left for this home, we noticed that eight of the profiles of the reviewers were created on the same day. This leads us to believe that they are fake reviews. In no way do the scenes depicted by these "reviews" mirror what we experienced. Rent at your own risk.
Owner's Response: It is very sad and disheartening to read this scathing review. Vacations should be wonderful and filled with special memories, and we try to contribute to those. And considering it has taken an entire year to comment is very strange.
There is so much dissatisfaction that we won’t try. However, for those of you who might think this is true, here are a few facts: We have been renting our home for over 25 years and this is a first. We get beautiful thank-you notes and many of our renters leave us gifts. We are always told what makes our home more desirable is the fact that we do have personal things. It has been a positive aspect. However, everyone’s desires and tastes are different.

The foods so "disparagingly" left in the refrigerator are staples such as ketchup, mustard, etc. and we encourage everyone to use them. We have everything one would need to spend a month, although most spend between 1 and 2 weeks. Fire Island is very expensive and we find that our tenants welcome this. We personally speak to everyone and apprise them of the oddities of our home, i.e. the upstairs bedroom being hot during the day, that we have 2 cats that live on our deck but never come into the house, that our NYC cat spends weekends with us and loves the privacy of her own little bed situated outside our bedroom.

We won’t even comment on the fake reviews. It is silly and as you can see, we have many repeat renters.

Yes, we have rules such as asking people to please be conscious of getting sand in the house. We own many sets of dishes and antiques and ask tenants not to use the special ones. There are so many other choices and tenants are always respectful of our favorite things. Perhaps the fact that the Vetters had traveled very far only to be bombarded by storms every day contributed to their severe displeasure. We would have hoped that being a broadcast journalist, communication would have been forthcoming
“Perhaps in 2012 you will find the vacation of your dreams and the sunshine for your soul!”

Charming, lovely house!

My mother, my sister and I found this house on homeaway.com this summer and spent a week in July at the house. The house is absolutely adorable.. very charming / private / comfortable, and so cutely decorated. We brought all our food out to fire island for the week and cooked almost all of our meals in the house. The house is just a couple blocks from the beach and a 5 min walk to the town (which is fun to go to at night for ice cream). Rochelle was a fantastic host. She met us at the ferry station with wagons when we arrived and helped us find our way to the house. She was available anytime we had a question during the week, and she is also very knowledgeable about fire island. I definitely recommend this house! We hope to return again.

Paradise on Fire Island

My husband and two sons rented this home the first week in July 2011. It is situated on the quiet end of the street just steps away from the ocean yet close enough to town to be able to enjoy all there is to offer. The house is very clean and comfortable with an updated kitchen. Outside deck is beautiful and very private. Owners were extremely helpful and accommodating.

Gem of a Home in Prime Location!

We've been renting homes on Fire Island for 15 years and must admit this property is our favorite. The home is immaculate, very well maintained, and esthetically pleasing. The house is located in a quiet location and the rear patio is super private. Loved the outdoor shower, comfortable patio furnishings, and grill ! The 2 storey layout allowed us to use the 2nd floor bedroom for some privacy. The owners are extremely responsive and provide excellent customer service. This home is not just another stripped down beach rental!
