Close to Ocean Beach nightlife, but far enough to be relaxing & quiet. Seaview beaches are never crowded or rowdy. Great kid's playground with pool!

a perfect family get-away!
Our family had the most wonderful time staying in this lovely, well-appointed and cozy home. Whether relaxing on the deck or lying in bed listening to the waves at night, it was always peaceful and quiet. Our 3 and 5 year old loved the Seaview kiddie pool and playground, and the grownups appreciated the gorgeous beach and the convenient location (so close to the ferry, the beach and to the restaurants of Ocean Bay!). We had an amazing, magical time and are already hoping to return next year.
What a terrific house!
This house was everything we were looking for. Charming, great furniture that took us back in time. Many houses on Fire Island are getting a modernist makeover, but we were looking for what drove people out here in the first place. There aren't many original houses in this condition left in Seaview, which is our favorite town on the island. The back deck was a pleasure every night, the distance to the general store is only two blocks away. When we felt the need to head into town for dinner or cocktails Ocean Beach is only a ten minute walk. The house is right near where the ferry dropped us off, which helped a lot with our five and a seven year old in tow. The house is also a member of a private town bay beach club with a kiddie pool where the kids got to swim and get free swimming lessons. There are also reasonable tennis lessons to be had every day of the week. There were adult bikes, a wagon, beach chairs - everything we didn't need to bring was there. Flowers are in bloom all around the yard. The barbecue was a snap to start. It's a clean house and we hope to get back there next year.
Relaxing in an Attractive Home
I cannot recommend this property more highly. When you enter this large, bright and spotless classic Fire Island home, you immediately feel relaxed and comfortable. The decor is perfect, the kitchen has everything you could possibly need, and is spacious and inviting. You can choose to eat in either the kitchen, dining area, or on the back or second floor decks. The second floor deck is like being in a private tree house; truly unique. The ferry is right at the end of the block, next to what's known as the best grocery store on the island. At the other end of the block is the beach, which is a glorious stretch of fine sand and endless ocean. I can't wait to return to this comfortable, convenient spot next year.
Seaview is 'A Family Community' on Fire Island - just a short walk to the bars, restaurants & nightlife in Ocean Beach, but minus the crowds and noise.
