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, decks around the house, ocean is yards away HOUSE IS ON THE BEACH No cars - twenty minute walk to ferry -. Totally modern, cathedral ceilings 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.

I have owned this house for twenty five years. I rent for 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you again for the most perfect vacation ever.

I want to be sure that you know that we can’t imagine not returning to Robbins Rest.

I have two children here demanding a promise right now that we will go back again as soon as possible!

Your home on Fire Island is the most beautiful, serene and perfectly situated beach house I have ever been in.

Every morning sunrise there is like waking up in heaven.

Every sunset ends another day in paradise.

Best Wishes and Great Gratitude!

Charming home by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with this charming home by the sea. It was an oasis for us. This home is literally steps from the beach in a part of Fire island that is far from the hustle of Ocean Beach. We fell asleep listening to the surf outside our window, awoke to a gorgeous view of the sunrise from our bedroom and took in the sunsets from the lovely front deck. We ate many of our meals in the charming back porch and relaxed in the kitchen where there is ample space to both eat and gather. We also loved lounging with our books or watching movies in the living room. If you are looking for an oceanfront home that is quiet, spacious, charmingly furnished with updated modern amenities - I would recommend this home.

Stunning house, stunning location & stunning views

  • 5 of 5

All too many times you view photos online and they don't quite measure up to your expectations. Well folks, I am delighted to share with you that this home, in its glorious ocean front location, not only met but exceeded our expectations. We just returned from a week's stay and we couldn't have been more pleased. The views were even more beautiful in person and waking up to the sound of crashing waves and a beautiful sunrise (I barely had to lift my head off a pillow to enjoy) that's the way to enjoy Fire Island. :)

The home owner was always more than happy to answer any questions we had leading up to and even during our stay. You can tell this is her year round home and is cared for as such. The details about her home and the recommendations for things to in and around town were spot on.

We had a lovely time and highly recommend this for your next destination.

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

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.

Or you can just hangout on my deck and look at the ocean, mosey on to an uncrowded beach and jump into the ocean!
