About Shana Weiss
I am a married mother of three who lives in the DC area. Spending time in Fire Island has always been a special pleasure for our family,
Shana Weiss purchased this House in 1994
Why Shana Weiss chose Seaview
This house was originally built for my husband's aunt in 1947 and has been in the family ever since. We undertook a full renovation in 2008-2009 including the building of an addition with a master bedroom and bath and a laundry room inside the house. The lot is fully landscaped with beautiful crepe myrtles, hydrangeas and blueberries that bloom all summer. An added bonus is a large rosemary bush that provides fresh herbs for your meals. Landscaper visits regularly to ensure the yard is tidy.
What makes this House unique
Spacious one level living easily accessible inside and out for strollers and wheelchairs . All rooms are spacious and uncluttered with ample floor-level sleeping accommodations for eight. Central location, easy walk to beaches, ferry market and town.

Perfect vacation home for our family....we were 7 adults all together and there was ample space for all. This very clean house is quite accommodating from the fully equipped kitchen, spacious living/dining area, comfy bedrooms, and beautiful decor! Loved having coffee on the front porch in the morning watching the deer walk by! Fully equipped with bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas, towels and wagons. Great location...Shana was a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend!!
We are delighted your family enjoyed your time in our home and found it so accommodating. You were wonderful tenants and hope you consider returning next year!
An oasis within an oasis
Recently spent a week here with family and friends. Shana's home is set up comfortably and is very well equipped with everything you'll need for an unforgettable Fire Island vacation. Plus the place is beautifully decorated with fish inspired art which is a passion we share. Oh, and did I mention that every room has AC and overhead fans? We were extremely lucky in that we had a perfect stretch of weather, but still, everyone slept well. Seaview is a very nicely maintained family oriented association that prides itself on staying that way. If one feels the need to visit boisterous Ocean Bay Park (Schooner (yeah) or Flynn's (not so) its right there and when your flops blow out the Ocean Beach commercial center is a short bike ride away. Highlight's included a water taxi ride to Cherry Grove with dinner overlooking the Ocean at the Sandcastle on the Beach. Followed this up with a show at Cherry's on the Bay featuring Hedda Lettuce. Not for the timid, but hysterical.
Thanks so much Peter for your rave reviews of our home! We're glad your family appreciated staying in our home and enjoyed many of the fun things there are to do in Fire Island. You were great tenants and hope to see you again next year! Be well!
Had a wonderful family vacation in Fire Island! The house was beautiful, and had all the amenities to make our family of eight feel rite at home. Great location, very quiet and close to the beach or in to town for dinner or ice cream. Shana & Coleman are wonderful hosts and took extra care to make sure we had everything we needed. The bedrooms were very comfortable. Loved the bicycles and the outdoor shower! We will always have wonderful memories of our vacation. I would highly recommend this home!
We're so so glad your family enjoyed your stay in our home. It's nice to know that you appreciated the comfort and spaciousness of our home and the amenities we provide. You were wonderful guests and hope you're able to return in future years!
Shana and Coleman
We rented the house last summer and have nothing but good things to say. It was very clean, great location, and the owners were available and totally helpful.
Thank you for your kind words about our home. We make every effort to ensure your stay is enjoyable as your comfort is important to us. The fact that our home is centrally located is a bonus, particularly with young children. We're pleased your family is returning again this summer!
Great Place for Vacation
We have been "day trippers" for quite some time and decided to rent for a week...what a treat! The house was perfect; very clean and centrally located. The pictures of the home were spot on. From star gazing to bike riding we made great memories for our kids. The owners were a pleasure to work with. Would definitely recommend this house.
Thanks so much for your kind words. We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay in our home. We appreciate your noting how clean the house is. You were great tenants. Please keep us in mind for future trips to Fire Island.
Property was very clean up on arrival and the beds were extremely comfortable which is not always the case with rental homes. Owners were very easy to work with and very anxious to please. Home is well located for short walk to ferry, market, town or beach.pictures are very accurate. Home is well maintained.
Thank you Mark for your kinds words about home. We are always pleased to know that our tenants enjoyed their stay in our home. We appreciate your noting the comfort of the mattresses because we try to ensure that the furnishings and appointments are of the highest quality. You were wonderful tenants and we hope you have the opportunity to stay with us again! Shana and Coleman
The house is located in Seaview, a family-oriented community on Fire Island. There are life guards on duty along the beach front in Seaview, 1-1/2 blocks from the house. There is also a bay beach with a life guard, a playground that was recently upgraded with new equipment, a bay-front pool, swimming lessons for children of all ages, including toddlers, a basketball court, and a baseball/softball field, with pickup games scheduled every Saturday. There are no additional fees for any of these activities, as they are included in the rental. There are also tennis courts across from the bay beach, which tenants will have access to, but for which an additional fee is required. The Seaview ferry terminal and Seaview Market are less than one block from the house, a two-minute walk. The town of Ocean Beach, with many fine stores, restaurants, bars, and a movie theater, is a ten-minute walk from the house. The Fire Island Synagogue is around the corner from the house. Catholic and Protestant Churches are also close by. From the house a pleasant walk can be taken along the beach to the Fire Island Lighthouse and Sunken Forest, run by the National Park Service. Fishing can be done from a dock in the marina at Ocean Beach. Crabbing can be done along the seawall fronting the bay. Surf casting can be done at the beach. There is also good surf at the beach for anyone interested in surfing. Fire Island has an abundance of birds and other wildlife that is sure to fascinate any naturalist. Weekends are pretty lively in Ocean Beach. Free public concerts are held on most Saturday nights. Arts and crafts fairs are also held in Ocean Beach on some Saturdays. There are no cars on the island, making it an ideal locale for children. We have 4 bicycles at the house, which can be used to take in many of the sights.
