About Patricia Doyle

I am an anti-aging motivator, actor & model.My husband is retired from wall street. My son was raised in Fire Island and it has been my home for more than 40 years.

Patricia Doyle purchased this house in 1984

Why Patricia Doyle chose Fair Harbor

I bought my vacation home in Fire Island because of the proximity to New York city, the ease of travel (train is one hour from city) and especially the laid-back peaceful atmosphere. Also, the freedom it gave me to raise my son there. Dunewood is a small community with only 100 houses, so everyone looks out for everyone else. Very important when children are involved.

What makes this house unique

As an actor/model I am used to being 'on stage'. Fire Island offers me the opportunity to dress casually. It is totally unpretentious, unlike the Hamptons.

Also, It is very safe for small children, with only service vehicles and bicycles on the road. Now that I'm a Grandmother, I appreciate it even more!

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Great experience from start to finish. The owner Patricia was great to work with, very responsive and helpful in every way! The house has a wonderful location just one house in off the beach. It's spacious and comfortable, has everything one needs to have a relaxing and enjoyable time. Two ferry docks are close, as well as tennis courts a block away. Quite part of Fire Island. My family and I had a wonderful time.

We've been renting on Fire Island for 10+ years and this has been the best of all: spectacular ocean view from the deck, 30-second walk to the beach, spacious living/dining area, comfortable and quiet bedrooms and all the amenities you could ask for in a beach house. It's close proximity to the ferry dock made moving in/out short and simple and, despite stifling heat and humidity in the area, we were always comfortable and cool thanks to the ocean breeze. Hope to return year after year after year...

Exceptional Fire Island Home

  • 5 of 5

A week at the beach with friends is always a wonderful vacation, but this beautiful, well-appointed home in a perfect location made this year's trip to Fire Island really special. Just steps away from the beach, it was totally convenient to go back and forth, making for perfect picnics. The ocean views are spectacular and the waves crashing can be heard from every bedroom. We love to enjoy wonderful food on vacation, and this kitchen was perfect for cooking together. We enjoyed dining and cocktails on the front deck or side deck. When we got a day of rain we were comfortable hanging out and playing games in the living room. We really appreciated some the nice touches that are sometimes lacking on Fire Island. The updated bathrooms and outdoor shower are exceptionally clean; the beds and linens were comfortable and in good condition; the kitchen was well-equipped, etc. The owners were very helpful and a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend this house!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have rented a lot of different houses in Dunewood, Fair Harbor, and Seaview. This is far and away the nicest: it's in great condition with the perfect layout (bedrooms downstairs, big open living area upstairs), it's breezy (a lot of older houses in FI have strangely poor air circulation), and oh that view! It's one house in from the ocean, but the houses are staggered so you can really see the surf, plus you're up high so there are views in every direction. We were tempted to spend the whole day on the upper level. It's comfortable and not cluttered with the owner's stuff. There's a great new outdoor shower and a new gas grill. The kitchen is modern and has all the tools you need. Our only complaint was that the outdoor dining furniture was a little too wide for the deck so we had trouble getting our guests around the table -- we all sat on one side. Not a big deal. I would rent this house again in a second.

Wonderful house with a spectacular view

  • 4 of 5

The house is comfortable and has a sweeping view from the top floor living area -- to the bay and ocean. Great location. En suite bathroom in the master is a great touch. Brand new outdoor shower. We would return for sure!
