About Dru Finley

The photos of the house say it all - we love Fire Island and the laid back vibe, but maintain our home in excellent condition and enjoy the creature comforts within! Updated with hot water on demand system so no one ever gets that last cold shower at the end of the beach day. We love our home and hope that you will too!

Dru Finley purchased this house in 2007

Why Dru Finley chose Ocean Bay Park

Fire Island is one of the most peaceful, amazing, laid back beautiful spots in the world! Your blood pressure goes down the moment you board the ferry boat! We looked at houses one-off the beach, or further inland with lovely gardens - then stepped out onto this amazing deck overlooking the ocean and a wide expanse of beach and knew this was the house for us!

What makes this house unique

Best location! Really close to the ferry! Paved walkways!

References available upon request. Happy to facetime to answer any questions you may have, and to meet "in person!"

Amazing and beautiful property ! I really felt like home and would have loved to stay longer than a week end !

A dream house in every sense

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property to celebrate my birthday and say goodbye to summer - what we got was so much more.

First, the house. The photos don't do it justice. It's clean, new and extremely well maintained. There's plenty of space to entertain between the living room and the wrap around deck and the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need to feed a small army. The house has a fantastic sound system with two zones (one in the living room and one on the deck) which is such a great feature - we spent our evenings between the living room and the deck so it was nice to have a seamless sound system. The bedrooms are spacious and the views are just stunning. The house is right on the beach, so going to and from is effortless - no need to pack a day's worth of supplies to go to the beach! It's also a 5 minute walk from two restaurants, the grocery store and the liquor store. Perfect house with a perfect location!

Secondly, Dru. From the initial contact when reserving the property to the very end, Dru was extremely responsive and sweet. She's very clear about her expectations and the line of communication is great. She's accommodating, helpful and welcoming. Any message I sent was replied to in a timely manner and any questions and requests I had were answered. Before we arrived she provided us with all the possible information we could need while staying at her house, and once we got there, she had also provided a binder filled with more useful information.

We had an amazing time. It's the kind of property where people want to let loose and just enjoy. HIGHLY recommend this property!

The property and overall stay was great. This was our second year in the row staying at the same house because we loved it so much the first time. We can't wait to go back next year!!

Can't say enough great things about my experience with renting this house. Dru was a pleasure to work with...made the rental process so easy and stress free. The house was absolutely amazing...literally right on the beach! The porch that faces the water is perfect ... didn't leave it all weekend! Can't wait to go back!

Lovely beach house with a great view and beach access! The house was everything that was promised, and Dru was very available and quite helpful with any questions. Would strongly recommend to anyone looking for a Fire Island place.

Beautiful home, relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We came here to celebrate our son and son-in-law's 30th birthdays with family and friends. What a wonderful, relaxing trip. This house is beautiful and easily accommodated our party of 12. The view from every room is amazing. The kitchen is fully equipped and

The house has plenty of towels and sheets. Dru is so nice and even though she was out of the country she made sure a small problem with the air conditioning was fixed immediately. This was our first time on Fire Island and we had no idea what to expect or how to even get here. Dru was very informative from the start and made our journey a pleasure from start to finish. There is so much to do and explore on Fire Island. It is a wonderful, friendly and safe place to vacation.
