Ocean Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Sorry, we do not rent for weekends. Please read all information provided.

FULL WEEK MONDAY TO SUNDAY RENTALS ONLY.

PLEASE CHECK CALENDAR AND RATES BEFORE CONTACTING.

This 5 bedroom home has been designed for optimal views of the Atlantic from every room. There are no 'peeks' at the ocean here...the main living area has a full 20 feet of floor-to-ceiling glass so that you can cook, dine or relax while watching waves crash on the shore. There are two full-sized desks in the living area for those who just can't leave the office behind even when on vacation. Four of the five oversized bedrooms have panoramic views and sliding glass doors leading out to the decks facing the ocean. The children's room with two single beds has a view of the ocean from its East-facing window.

There are two large decks overlooking the dunes and beach. The upper deck on the main living area overlooks the ocean and has 5 comfortable lounge chairs, a dining table and barbeque. The lower level shade deck has a beautiful seating area for those wanting to be outside experiencing the beauty and sound of the sea and yet not wanting to be exposed to the sun. The home is just steps from the public stairs leading down to our beautiful white sand beach.

You will not find granite countertops, custom cabinets or elaborately tiled baths in this updated home that has been in the owner's family since the 1940's...but the kitchen is set up 'restaurant-style' with open shelving so that everything you need is in full sight. No more searching for the right pots, lids, dishes or serving bowls....they are visible and at your finger tips....our guests rave about how easy it is to prepare meals! This is our little piece of paradise and we rent only to families willing to care for it as lovingly as we always have. Village Ordinance allows a maximum of 8 guests. Ocean Beach is as kid-friendly as it gets and there's plenty of shops, restaurants and night life for the parents as well. This just might be your oceanfront dream vacation come true!

About Barbara Dunn-Lardner

About us: This home has been a family treasure since John was a boy of four; so for nearly seventy years he's been 'watching the tide roll in'. For most of those years, and a few updates later, it was a year round residence so you will find our home to be more than just a beach cottage...and yet it retains much of the old Fire Island charm. Our joy is to keep this home in beautiful condition...not so 'fancy' that you can't enjoy yourself...but appointed well enough that you don't feel like you're camping. We take tremendous pride in ensuring that your vacation is as good as it can be.

Barbara Dunn-Lardner purchased this house in 1947

Why Barbara Dunn-Lardner chose Ocean Beach

Why this property....because it just dosen't get any better! There was a time or two when we thought of leaving... and realized we just couldn't! What we have is priceless...there isn't room enough to list the reasons why.

What makes this house unique

Unique benefits... Everything! Sound of the ocean, sunrise turning the sea red, moonrise making a golden path on it. Wind in the sea grass, the beach dotted with brightly colored umbrellas, a star filled sky, a front row seat for a lightning storm at sea.... etc,etc,etc.

A slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5
My family arrived at the Ocean Beach dock loaded up for our 5 days. John and Barbara met us at our ferry with a wagon to help us transport it all. Very kind and a life saver as we had over packed. The house was great .. exactly as described. Breath taking views from every room and the decks. The kitchen was well appointed and had everything you could need to cook a big meal. The property is steps from the beach and it was great to be able to run back to the house for a cold drink or anything else you needed. This was huge as we had 4 small kids in tow. It was a magical visit with great weather and a great house. I would highly recommend staying with John and Barbara. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

YET ANOTHER AWESOME STAY!!!

  • 5 of 5
We've come for the past two years now and we all look forward to staying here. This is truly a GREAT house, fully equipped kitchen, with outdoor grill which we use the whole time we are here. You're close to the market and restaurants in town which is a plus on those day you don't want to cook.

Just being right on the beach front makes you feel like you're on vacation even when you are inside the house. We all honestly sleep better here than we do in our own beds at home. The owners are super nice and friendly people. I definitely recommend this home to anyone who is looking for a beach front home but still accessible to everything.

Excellent beach vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5
We were thrilled with the home. Its five unique well appointed bedrooms, three clean bathrooms, a kitchen well equipped with pots, pans, glasses, etc., spacious living and dining areas with decks overlooking the ocean fit our family of 8's needs exactly as anticipated. The one good surprise we had not considered was the calming, constant sounds of the loud ocean waves hitting shore. I fought falling to sleep each night as I did not want to stop listening to the sounds of the ocean. Best sleeping pill! The ocean is only steps away. The sun deck was our frequent dining room for breakfast, coffee, etc. and whatever other reason we could find for sitting outdoors with the ocean as our panoramic view. The roof deck was closed during our stay. It would've been fun to enjoy the sun and view from its higher vantage point; yet, we certainly understand how harsh the winter elements can be on an ocean home. We understand the broken metal stairs to the top deck (there are two other decks to still enjoy) are in the process of being repaired. During our stay, the owners readily provided advice whenever we reached out to them. (Otherwise, we did not even know of their comings and goings from their first floor apartment in this house.) Our family needs varied as our ages spanned between my granddaughter, a 23 month old, to my aunt, at age 99. The outdoor ramps made getting inside to the bedroom level easy for the 99 year old and the 23 month old's stroller, as well as most of the luggage. Whatever our concerns, the owners were very responsive. The house presents the same in person as online pics. It's got every convenience and the ocean front access can't be beat.

fabulous two weeks!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this wonderful home for two weeks the last of June 2014. My mother in law came for a week, then our son and his wonderful girlfriend joined us at the end. There is something very special about this place. Yes the bathrooms might be beach housey,but the vibe, the decor, the location, EVERYTHING was perfect for us. We travel all over the world and have lots of opportunities for vaca, but we will come here every year as long as we are able and the owners choose to rent! Really relaxing and so wonderful!

Very disappointed

  • 1 of 5
My husband and I rented this house for 3 nights with a group of friends as a long weekend getaway. We are very disappointed with our experience. Upon arrival and making lunch for our kids we noticed that the very OLD stove top had a crack in the glass. Our mistake in assuming the owner knew about the crack but upon checking out of the house we brought the crack to the owners attention as we wanted to make sure they were aware. We are responsible, honest, family people. If we broke something we would take full responsibility.... we had nothing to do the stove glass crack. The landlords are now claiming we cracked the stove and we DID NOT! The bathrooms and kitchen are all incredibly old and out of date- and this crack was not our responsibility or problem.
We were also informed to that we would have full access to the rooftop and learned 2 days prior to arrival the roof top is under construction and not accessible.
We unfortunately would not recommend this home. We are now being charged a fortune to repair a very old stove that again we had nothing to do with breaking. VERY DISAPPOINTED.
