Summer on Fire Island is truly paradise.

About Roberto

I love to travel. My wife and I love the laid-back Fire Island beach lifestyle. We find homes with beautiful bay and sunset views spiritual and invigorating. We live on Long Island, NY just 7 miles across the bay, but feel thousands of miles away when on Fair Harbor.

Roberto purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Roberto chose Fire Island

Fair Harbor is one of the most beautiful beach locations in the world. The Fair Harbor community has a casual, laid back vibe, with interesting, creative and friendly people.

What makes this cottage unique

The spectacular views; the very convenient location; and the perfect setting for meeting and socializing with interesting, creative, and friendly people from Europe, NYC, Fire Island and around the world.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Our second year here and this time we stayed for 16 days! Everything is perfect, from the bay breeze all day and night to the closeness of the ocean and town shops. We had several major parties for friends and family and everyone had a marvelous time on the beach, grilling on the deck and celebrating the sunset with all the rest of the town folk, who come out every night for the best sunsets this side of Key West. Roberto and Phy were attentive to everything, including replacing an entire refrigerator on the eve of a big party - could not ask for better hosts. We had a bunch of teenage boys on their way to college stay over, a continuing series of teenage girls heading to high school dropping in, and everyone fit comfortably and had a great time, young and old. The house has so many nice sitting areas, from the front yard to the screened in porch to the huge back deck, that is easy to both have quiet space when just the family is there and also host a widely varied group of guests who can all find places to talk and enjoy themselves in smaller groups. We've probably stayed at 8 or 10 different houses in Fair Harbor but this is now two years in a row for us at this great place. Book now!

Ideal FI Getaway Home

  • 5 of 5

I visited the property on my first trip ever to FI and it absolutely lived up to the hype - not just because the island is so beautiful, but because this property creates an idyllic backdrop for a perfect vacation. Laid back, beachy, but with every accommodation one could hope to find, I sincerely cannot wait to go back. From the out door shower, to the wonderful grill, comfortable rooms and wonderful beach vibe - you truly have no choice but to relax and enjoy. Steps from the ferry and downtown restaurants, this home made my first trip to FI unforgettable.

The perfect setting

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed for a long weekend to celebrate our sister's upcoming nuptials. This was a wonderful location for a bridal weekend. It's a perfect location: close to the ferry & grocery, ocean beach is a short walk away, and best of all it's nestled right on the bay for spectacular sunsets every night. We loved the historic quaintness of the house; it was the perfect layout especially with the bedrooms upstairs that are perfect for family and close friends, but also provides privacy when needed. We absolutely loved all the sitting nooks on the property and the great deck behind the house. Finally, the owners are so accommodating and treat you like family as they welcome you into their home.

The BEST location in Fair Harbor!

  • 5 of 5

Peace, happiness, tranquility. If those things mean anything to you, I highly recommend a stay at the most beautiful spot in Fair Harbor (and I say this having rented many other homes here). This charming beach cottage is perfectly situated on the bay with stunning sunset views every evening. While this incredibly convenient location is close to the restaurant, market and ferry, it is also remarkably private. With a spacious back deck and lovely screened in front porch (with dining area and gorgeous sunset views), this cottage is perfect for entertaining friends and family. Not to mention the abundance of room for overnight guests (which may or may not be a good thing depending on your relations :) And I would be remiss if I did not mention the wonderful hospitality of the proprietors who did everything to make sure that our stay here was nothing less than perfect. I only hope they don't mind the damage to the door frame that occurred when I had to be physically pried from the residence at the end of our stay ;)

Owner's Response: Phy and I are so thrilled that Teresa, Steve and their families loved their stay at our bay cottage. They are the best guests any VRBO host could want - taking care of the home like their own, and even doing laundry and cleaning before leaving! We are grateful for Teresa's appreciation, communication, cleanliness and graciousness. Teresa and family are welcome back any time!

Summer get away

  • 5 of 5

Roberto and Phy's beach house was in a perfect location for my family in Fair Harbor. We stayed for 5 nights in June 2015 and had a truly great week. The house has large bedrooms upstairs and a very nice separate bedroom downstairs, It was the perfect set up for my family (4 kids and a nanny!). The location is excellent - close to the store, restaurant and ferry but without being right on top of everyone. There is a small beach and playground for the kids right outside and the main beach is a short walk away. The sunsets from the front of the house are really spectacular.

Wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home for my brother and his family for the weekend I was married in Fair Harbor.

The location was perfect! Close to LeDock and perfect for the bay beach access for children to play in the sand & playground. Wonderful hosts, met us all at the ferry upon arrival and brought us to their home. It is a place that I'm sure is very dear to their family and should be treated with care;)

you will have a wonderful time in both FairHarbor and staying in their home.

All the best!
