Fantastic Classic Fire Island Beach House

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing and classic Fire Island beach house! This was our second summer staying in this charming "home away from home" and we just love it! All the amenities were great, well kept, clean and complete. Working outdoor BBQ as well as several 2nd floor terraces all around the unique circular/geometric design of the home. As the description indicates this is the perfect house for families vacationing with children as it has lots of space to play, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, games, toys, bicycles, sports equipment etc. to keep everyone happy and entertained. House is literally just a short walk less than 5 minutes away from the beach! Beth the owner was really nice . She provided great customer service and answered quickly any questions we had. All towels, beds and sheets were clean and well kept. Amazing outdoor shower as well as one inside the main bathroom but the outdoor one is a classic Fire Island detail and personally we think the way to go and easy to wash off after a long day at the beach. The house is also situated just a short walk to the next town over of Ocean Beach where a myriad of great shops, restaurants and nightlife are located when one wants a night out on the biggest town on the island. In closing, we cannot say enough good things about this house. It was everything we hoped for and more and we will be returning hopefully every summer. If you are looking for the perfect quaint, quiet, comfortable family beach get away yet still close enough to the main town where all the shops, restaurants and nightlife are than this is the place for you. We highly recommend this reasonably priced vacation home for a classic old school Fire Island beach experience!

Great fire island experience. House has everything you need--a real home. Plenty of supplies and cookware, all very organized. I also want to note that prior to our visit I was very concerned about using fans (not a/c) and this was NOT a problem at all--bedrooms remain cool at night. One night I even felt chilly and got an extra blanket. Also, for those parents who like their children to sleep as late as possible, the shades in the bedrooms are GREAT. The house also has lots for kids to do--toys, books, art supplies--my 4 and 7 year old loved it. Thanks so much for a great stay.

This house is truly a "Beach House"!

  • 5 of 5

This house feels like you're inside a lighthouse. It's what a "Beach House" should be. Everything you need or want at your finger tips and you're steps away from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We had two small children and they always had something to do. Beth (the owner) was so helpful. She was always making sure everything was perfect. I would highly recommend this charmer to anyone and everyone!

Best Family Rental on Fire Island

  • 5 of 5

We have rented five houses on Fire Island (four of which were in Seaview) and Beth's house was by far our favorite. The first question is which town to rent in, and Seaview easily wins for a family- great facilities (playground, bay beach, tennis courts, baseball/softball fields), the best kept beach, best market and best combination of access to Ocean Beach restaurants/stores and quiet. Within Seaview, Beth's house ticks all of the boxes for us- clean, well located (perfect distance to beach and market- the two places you'll go to most frequently) , friendly/quiet/respectful neighbors, airy, cool design. Fully stocked kitchen and beach supplies. Beth was a thoughtful and responsive host. Really perfect. We will visit again.

Beautiful Home on a great street in Fire Island!

  • 5 of 5

This home is a beautiful example of Fire Island architecture. The 2nd level living/kitchen area is octagonal with FOUR decks with screened doors to allow for unlimited flow of sea air. The kitchen is large and easy for multiple chefs to move around. We had 4 adults and 2 kids and everyone had an amazing week. Its steps from the beach and you cant help but be relaxed and refreshed after time spent in this home!
