Separate WC's1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8 - 10)

Come enjoy the sea and the special atmosphere of Fire Island at this lovely family home in Seaview. The house has 4 bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths. The kitchen and both baths were entirely rebuilt two years ago with brand new fixtures and appliances everywhere; a laundry area was also added with new washer/dryer. There's a large deck (also new) with deck furniture, gas grill, and a beautiful outdoor shower. The dining room and 'triple bedroom' have pocket windows on three sides. Each bedroom has a (new) ceiling fan, as does the living room and kitchen; the 'twin bed' has a window A/C. Satellite TV, Internet, and a PC are included. The house is on a double lot with lots of native shrubbery for privacy and bird watching.

Seaview is a family community. From the house it's an easy stroll to the beach, the bay, or to shops and restaurants in Ocean Beach. Wonderful for children (no cars on Fire Island!) or for a relaxed vacation for adults.

Wonderful home, relaxing and great location

  • 5 of 5

This house had plenty of space for us three ladies to spend a relaxing weekend together. The house has such a wonderful charm and character to it. The kitchen and bathrooms were really nice, with convenient nice laundry machines. The location was perfect! We didn't have great weather but we still were able to have a great time! We went for a bike ride which was a lot of fun. Overall a wonderful stay, and coordination with the owner was a pleasure! - we would definitely come back for another stay.

Spacious Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week at this spacious comfortable home in Seaview. The kitchen, bathroom, barbeque and laundry facilities were in good condition. Plenty of space to spread out so that the family of 6 did not feel cramped or crowded. Although it was on a main corner with foot traffic on the weekend, it was relatively quiet and secluded by tall grasses. Highly recommend the property.

Great Seaview Home!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful stay at this charming Seaview home! We went as a group of 6 adults with 3 babies and had a great week. The home is in a great location (easy to get into town or to beach), very clean/well supplied, and has a great outdoor patio/deck that we used everyday. The owner was easily accessible, a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond in providing information not only before the rental week, but during the week as well with Seaview events/news.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous home! We were 4 ladies looking to relax and found it EASILY at this home. Our timing was the week before Memorial Day and it was pleasantly quiet. The home is easily accessible from either the Ocean Beach or the Seaview ferries. The Seaview market/liquor store at the seaview ferry terminal is a 3 minute walk. We spent time at the ocean beach, which was a short walk away, and on the days it was too chili, the beautiful secluded deck was the perfect spot to soak up the sun. The one rainy/overcast day we had we were delighted to play cards at the dining table, utilize the newly renovated kitchen and use the large bathtub which was perfect for a relaxing soak. All in all we were so happy with this home and highly recommend it. The owner was a delight and we would definitely return.

Fun, Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for the week leading up to labor day. The house had everything that we might need and more. It included board games, bikes, tons of towels, and it was very clean. It had a private deck and a grill where we cooked almost every night. The kids had a fantastic time at the beach and playing games in the afternoon when it was hot. We had a wonderful time and if we decide to return to Fire Island next summer, we will definitely be renting here.
