Interaction with guests
The home owners are not on the premises, but Josh is always a phone call or text message away. He will answer any questions and connect you with folks on the island if you need anything directly.
Fair Harbor is a quiet, friendly, and fun-loving beach community with restaurants, grocery, a general store, and ice cream! Make sure you bring a glass of wine down to the ferry dock to watch the sun set with your neighbors.
Everything you could ever want is in walking distance. For longer-range adventures, we provide four bicycles that you are welcome to use! There are no cars on the island, but you already knew that.

Great Cottage in Fair Harbor!
We recently stayed at this beach house and had a wonderful time! It can easily accommodate a family of four, but we also had another family visit us for a couple of day while there, and that worked well with two additional kids sleeping on air beds that we brought with us, however, there were air beds at the house as well. Ample deck with a grill so we ate most meals outside. Quick walk to Fair Harbor, where we would gather with others and watch many beautiful sunsets at the bay! The house is also a quick walk to the beach! We also used the bikes at the house to ride to the market and see friends in towns close by. We loved this house and would definitely stay here again!
Beach Cottage in the woods
Three bedroom, ranch style house with an attic. This was an older house, similar to a lot of Fire Island cottages. For the price, it was a great deal. It's a house to sleep in with a working kitchen and a lot of space in the common areas. Josh is a super fast communicator and very helpful with EVERYTHING!
--Like any where in Fire Island, the house was so close to the beach and the bay. Very close to the ferry stop as well, so it was easy to carry our bags to the house.
--Had a wagon at the house for heavy bags or supplies/boxes from the freight ferry or to carry things to the beach
--Three available bikes with locks
--Grill available, easy to use
--Big back deck to hang out on
--1 window AC unit available to put in any window (wasn't expecting AC!)
--A LOT of beach chairs and beach umbrellas for use
--A LOT of towels to use for the bathroom and for the beach
--Living room was big and had a lot of seating! Great size kitchen table also.
--Couches were very comfortable!
--Outdoor shower was great; washer and dryer on the back deck came in handy!
--Overgrown, with trees and shrubs in the walkways of the deck. Just needs some trimming and it would make walking around the house easier
--Ants in the kitchen, but there was spray to use
--Coffee machine had mildrew in the water part, but there was a french press to use as well.
--TV / cable never worked... tried every day; really not a big deal (you're at the beach!) except for rainy days when you're stuck inside.
--No brush for the grill so you can't clean it off, giving food a weird taste.
--The screens of the front screen door were completely off. Someone taped the screens up, but that didn't last, so it's either keeping the door open for a breeze, letting the bugs in, or shutting the front door and keeping it hot inside.
Perfect, quiet beach getaway.
The house was adorable. Perfect location, and we loved the back deck and grill.
