We are available for summer 2013! The house had no damage from Hurricane Sandy! This is a three bedroom beach house in the great community of Ocean Bay Park in Long Island's Fire Island premier vacation area. The house is contemporary styling with a great room with plenty of light and 25 foot vaulted ceilings. Two large California redwood chairs wait for the king and queen to entertain or read a good book. Attached to the great room is a large eat-in kitchen. The master bedroom has it's own bathroom with shower and there is another bathroom with tub for the guests. Each bedroom has new ceiling fans. Large brand new deck (may 2009) and outside shower (2010). There is a new barbecue and patio set. New washing machine and refrigerator. Located on Cayuga St, centered between Flynn's Restaurant and the Fire Island Hotel and the Hurricane Bar and Grill. The ferry is a 10 minute walk to the house. To the east of the house is the private community of Point of Woods and Sunken Forest State Park and to the west is Seaview and Ocean Beach, a town unlike no other. You can take a leisurely walk to any of them down the beach or on the walkways or jump in a water taxi to get anywhere you wish to go.
The Point of Woods baseball field lies directly behind the house and is only used by the summer camp for the children There are no houses behind this one which provides more privacy. The Fire Island Hotel has a swimming pool and is a one minute walk from the house. The unwritten rule is that you can use the pool but please purchase drinks from the restaurant. There are three bicycles there, a Mens, Womens and Child. The house also had beach chairs, satellite with large screen Flat Screen on a Pivot mount.
I grew up in West Islip across the bay from Fire Island. We moved there from Brooklyn when I was 8. I am a lifelong Long Island resident and spent most of my working career in Manhattan. I now operate my own business in the office technology arena serving Manhattan to Montauk.
Growing up in West Islip, many people I knew (including myself) went to Fire Island by personal boat. It was right in our back door across the bay. Anytime you wanted a break or wanted to have fun, this was the place to be. I lost my boat in the Noreaster of 1996 and Pat Meade, selling real estate, showed us this house and is was love at first site. I bought the house the same day I saw it
Open and ariy with vaulted ceilings, modern contemporary styling and sheetrocked walls this hoouse was very well built. It is located between Flynn's restaurant, the Market, and the Fire Island Hotel and minutes to the beach or bay.
